Is the Art of Listening the key to human evolution?
Date: 4/27/2019 9:24:00 AM
Topic of Study: Behavioral Science
Presenter: Jill F. Alessandra-Garza
Synopsis: There are many ways people talk with others ... giving advice, instruction, sharing, demands. Is it possible to talk in a way that shows we listen? As Masons, we envision ourselves as rough material that must be cut and polished to be more useful to something bigger. Is there a way to communicate with each other that is cooperative from both people? That touches and unfolds our genuine selves?

Does an irrational number (Phi) govern structures in our objective universe?
Date: 8/24/2019 1:00:00 PM
Topic of Study: Formal Science
Presenter: Judith Champion
Synopsis: Geometry is universal. It transcends language and culture. In the nineteenth century, geometry and Masonry were synonymous terms because geometry was the basis of Masonic terminology and symbolism. It reveals the beauty of creation through proportion, number, and relationships found in phenomenal forms. To the Greek philosophers and geometers Phi represented divine harmony and order. The forms and patterns manifesting from divine archetypes constitute sacred geometry. What is LIVING GEOMETRY? By that is meant the forms and proportions of the manifested universe found in the mineral, vegetable, animal, and human realms, in which Phi ratios predominate. Certain patterns and shapes seem universal, from the smallest crystal to planets and galaxies.

"A human being is a part of a whole, called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest ... a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."
Albert Einstien
