Are Rites of Passage Important?
Date: 7/21/2018 2:30:00 PM
Topic of Study: History
Presenter: Christina Galeassi
Synopsis: Rites of passage are diverse and have been found throughout many cultures, marking the transitions in life such as birth, puberty, adulthood, old age, and death. Ritual ceremonies are intended to mark the passage from one life phase to another and link the individual to the community and the community to a broader and more potent spiritual world. As Freemasonry seeks to learn from the triumph and tragedies of our ancestors, in order to move beyond the mistakes of those who came before us or carry forth wisdom gained the Freemason must ask Is Western society missing this link to help guide us?

Is the evolution of language an indication of the evolution of man?
Date: 8/18/2018 2:30:00 PM
Topic of Study: Formal Science
Presenter: Katie Cumsille
Synopsis: How well do you understand your native language? Its intricate and complex nature causes misunderstandings and conflict as well as communicates feelings and emotions. There is no group of people, including Freemasons, that do not exhibit a level of language, whether it be complex or simple. Such variation in language leads one to ask: Is there a connection between an extensive language system and the evolution of its speakers? Join us as we study the foundation of psycholinguistics and see if we can correlate it to Man's evolution, and more especially to our own personal evolution.

"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
