Is ‘natural healing’ just a placebo, or is there actual science behind this ‘movement.’
Date: 12/12/2017 6:00:00 PM
Topic of Study: Natural Science
Presenter: Mark Valkonen
Synopsis: Is there science behind the healing energy of Reiki, Crystals, and the Human Energy Field? Or is this just pseudo-science that is no different than an experimental placebo pill? The relationship between the human energy field, Reiki theory, and Crystals (or geological rocks) will be examined, and how these different types of energy can be aided or disrupted. Can we, as Freemasons, examine the different viewpoints and determine the effectiveness (or lack thereof) for ourselves?

What is art and does it have inherent meaning?
Date: 1/9/2018 6:00:00 PM
Topic of Study: Art
Presenter: Chris Osborn
Synopsis: Have you ever looked at a work of art and wondered, how is this art? What are the defining characteristics that determine what is art and what isn't? Does art have inherent meaning or is meaning found only in the eye of the beholder? We will consider these questions and many more by examining several different modalities of art including painting, sculpture, and music. Then we will delve into symbolism and discuss how art has influenced 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."
