Does Freemasonry really have anything to do with the Ancient Mysteries?
Date: 12/2/2017 10:00:00 AM
Topic of Study: History
Presenter: Kris Wilson-Slack
Synopsis: The origin of Freemasonry has been debated by many - it’s beginnings shrouded by the passage of time and the secrecy demanded of its members. Some attribute its origins to operative Masonry, some to the Templars and others to much older esoteric traditions. We will examine several of the ancient mystery schools based on historical writings and discuss whether or not a connection can truly be made between Freemasonry and these old Initiatic rites.

Who are we really?
Date: 1/27/2018 10:00:00 AM
Topic of Study: Philosophy
Presenter: Henry Kelly
Synopsis: "I am not the person I was.” We hear that a lot, especially when it comes to growing older and, one hopes, wiser. Indeed, we’re not the same person we were. Over the course of time, our cells die, regenerate, add, delete, change, morph, and eventually we have all new cells. But we retain our name, our memories, our lives. Are we not the same person? One would argue that of course we are. Or are we? Really?

Is chaos a good thing?
Date: 2/24/2018 10:00:00 AM
Topic of Study: Philosophy
Presenter: Karen Kidd
Synopsis: In many esoteric and religious traditions chaos is described as a necessary component for life, the universe, and everything. The "Big Bang" is often thought of as the chaotic origins of the present Universe from which order evolved. In Hinduism,there is Brahma the world-creator Vishnu, the world-maintainer, and Shiva the world-destroyer. In science, there is a recognized life cycle of birth, life, and death. There also is a suggestion that there can be no order without chaos, which leads to Freemasonry's great motto, "Ordo Ab Chao." Chaos often is relatively defined, especially in the first world (my flight was late, the limo got stuck in traffic, my room wasn't ready, I forgot my lucky tie, the cellphone charger didn't reach from the nightstand to the middle of the bed, everything was utter chaos). It is rare to hear someone who has experienced genuine chaos (war, famine, pestilence and death) discuss chaos so readily, let alone as a necessary and good thing. It's hard to imagine the people of Rome in 412, abducted human beings forced into the transatlantic slave trade or Anne Frank and other victims of the Holocaust discussing the chaos that overtook their lives as a good, inevitable and necessary thing. Is chaos - REAL CHAOS - a good thing?

What is the true meaning of The Word?
Date: 3/24/2018 10:00:00 AM
Topic of Study: Philosophy
Presenter: Byron Gorrell
Synopsis: Religions, particularly Christian and Catholic, associate The Word with the written word in the Bible, with Jesus, or both. It is described as the embodiment of what God is and wishes to convey to us all. However, what does a closer examination of The Word tell us? Is the commonly accepted interpretation of that concept correct? As a Freemason, we are propelled to scrutinize all questions and so in this discussion we will journey down a path of discovery which may surprise you in its outcome – potentially contrary to what you have been taught growing up.

"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."
