OUR SPEAKER and PAPER
W Bro Simon Vanholland is the Worshipful Master of Lodge Ethos 963 located in the ACT. He is making the trip up to Sydney to present this paper, which he has recently given (very successfully) in some Canberra based Lodges.
Our Masonic journey is one of conferring degrees, but it does not confer elevated levels of consciousness. That is up to the individual’s journey and the purpose of Freemasonry to assist with. In this lecture we will explore the levels of consciousness through the philosophical dissection of the first degree Tracing Board and how the tools of our craft call us to action in the physical world and outline the practical contemporary applications to elevate our consciousness based on the work of Brother W. Kirk MacNulty.
Our Festive Board will have a dining fee of $40 per person. Please email the Secretary if you will be attending.
