Does Alchemy Have Importance In Our Modern Life?
Date: 10/27/2018 10:00:00 AM
Topic of Study: Natural Science
Presenter: Katie Cumsille
Synopsis: Alchemy, as a valid science, reached its height of prominence during the mid 1650s with such important practitioners like Sir Isaac Newton. Many great minds during the Renaissance Period and before have not found it contrary to their belief in God nor Science to become Alchemical students. But much has changed since then and Alchemy has fallen so far from its light. Does the current place in which Alchemy has been reduced make sense to the Freemason who wishes to understand all areas of study?

Is it True that Stoics Repress Emotions and Feelings?
Date: 11/10/2018 10:00:00 AM
Topic of Study: Philosophy
Presenter: Cecilia Sifuentes
Synopsis: Stoicism is more than just great thoughts organized into a complete and coherent vision of reality. It is first and foremost a philosophy to live by, a practical application of ancient wisdom, a way of life and a guide to the choices one makes in this life. And from its beginnings, it was the only philosophy addressed to all human beings regardless of gender, race, or social class. Even women and slaves were welcome to follow this path, to be treated as sisters and brothers, a notion considered laughable by other philosophers who, along with Aristotle, classified them somewhere above brute beasts and below free men.

Alice in Wonderland Philosophy, what does it mean?
Date: 12/8/2018 10:00:00 AM
Topic of Study: Esotericism
Presenter: Katherine Murillo
Synopsis: Lewis Carroll, the author of Alice in Wonderland, was well versed in the sciences as a mathematician, exploring both the natural and spiritual world. When Carroll first wrote this story, he called it Alices Adventures Underground. Is there a relationship between this tale and Ancient Mystery Schools? How do you relate this tale with Freemasonry?

"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
