Why do we search for happiness?
Date: 10/14/2017 4:00:00 PM
Topic of Study: Philosophy
Presenter: Jennifer Klenk
Synopsis: Freemasonry provides a system of self-evaluation and ethics in which an individual can reflect upon their own lives and begin to make changes to improve themselves and those around us. What can an individual do to find happiness in their life? Does one have to have a purpose to be happy? Join us as we explore the quest for happiness through psychological, philosophical, scientific, and Masonic lenses.

Why did Leonardo da Vinci leave so much unfinished?
Date: 11/11/2017 4:00:00 PM
Topic of Study: Art
Presenter: Claradene Wycoff
Synopsis: The life of Leonardo da Vinci is a mysterious tapestry, woven in paradox, dyed in irony. No one has ever attempted so much in so many areas: science, anatomy, hydraulics, engineering, botany, geography, astronomy, architecture, philosophy. Many Freemasons aspire to be as learned and as productive as he was. Much of da Vinci’s work was left behind in copious notebooks, which contained wondrous information, that he never organized or published as intended. Does leaving work unfinished make a person a failure? Join us as we examine the nature of a legacy of a life’s work left unfinished.

Can the scientific method be used to answer moral questions?
Date: 12/9/2017 4:00:00 PM
Topic of Study: Behavioral Science
Presenter: Deborah Dilley
Synopsis: Much has been written about the behavior of “immoral” individuals: those who violate the law, who kill, who are deemed “different” from the rest of society in one aspect or another. But what has been studied scientifically on the aspects of human behavior that are part of the common moral code? Can the ethical standards of Freemasonry, or the standards of using the scientific method, help us understand the underlying foundations of morality?

What can we learn from our Saturn Return?
Date: 1/13/2018 4:00:00 PM
Topic of Study: Esotericism
Presenter: Helen Cox
Synopsis: In astrology, the Saturn Return is the period of life when the planet Saturn completes its orbit around the Sun in relation to the time of our birth. This happens to each of us in our late twenties / early thirties, and again later in life. The first Return is considered a time of chaos, and a rite of passage into adulthood. There is much to learn and gain from this experience. Join us as we use the Masonic tools of self-reflection as explore, not only the symbolism of Saturn, but also the significance of the human transition from the 20s into the 30s.

Can we understand ourselves by claiming the stars?
Date: 5/12/2018 4:00:00 PM
Topic of Study: Natural Science
Presenter: Deborah Dilley
Synopsis: Humankind has mapped the stars throughout the millennia, naming constellations by using the mythic stories that formulate the foundations of our history, morals, and cultural identities. Why do humans see our mythic heroes in the night sky? It is an attempt to connect to the heavens? Is it an attempt to conquer the infinite, harnessing it by name? Using the analytical tools of Freemasonry, we will seek answers to these questions by evaluating the science of astronomy and the intersections of esoteric ideals of our place in the universe.

How can Aboriginal Songlines change the way we think?
Date: 11/10/2018 4:00:00 PM
Topic of Study: Theology
Presenter: Deborah Dilley
Synopsis: The cultural history and land typography of Australia has been passed down through the generations by the Songlines of the Indigenous Australians. Integral to Aboriginal spirituality, Songlines have functioned as an encyclopedia of knowledge and cultural/ritual preservation. Freemasonry asks of its adherents to esoterically evaluate the foundations of structures, which sometimes means learning to view the world from a new and unusual perspectives. If by learning of the Indigenous Australians Songlines, is it possible to formulate a new understanding of the world we live in and how we relate to it? Come join us to find out.

"Un ser humano es parte de un todo, llamado por nosotros el universo, una parte limitada en el tiempo y el espacio.Sus pensamientos y sentimientos como algo separado del resto ... una especie de ilusión óptica de su conciencia. Esta ilusión es una Una especie de prisión para nosotros, que nos restringe a nuestros deseos personales y de afecto para unas pocas personas más cercanas a nosotros. Nuestra tarea debe ser Liberarnos de esta prisión ampliando nuestro círculo de compasión para abrazar a todas las criaturas vivas y toda la naturaleza en subelleza."
