June 11, 2022 – An Introduction to Symbolism

This is a revision of the initial course offered by the Maine Masonic College. Symbolism is a critical element in experiencing Freemasonry. We will observe and discuss how symbolism is also an integral part in everyone’s life. Lack of an understanding of the levels of symbols and their interpretation, have severe repercussions for us all. This interactive presentation is open to all audiences and ages.

First, using their Gallup CliftonStrengths results, each participant will explore his/her strongest talents – the best path for accomplishing outcomes. Second, each participant will complete an exercise to help identify his/her core values. Third, through Stephen MR Covey’s work, participants will determine where they are best and where they can improve how they create and foster trust with others. Finally, participants will bring these 3 elements together in the form of a Personal Brand statement providing the road map of how they interact with others and contribute to group accomplishments.

To Register: IMPORTANT: Participants must complete their on-line CliftonStrengths assessment and provide their Top 5 Talents to Malcolm (at the email below) one week in advance of the class. Doing so will register the participant for the class.

Out There: The Quest for Extrasolar Worlds

For thousands of years, mankind thought that the Earth was the center of the Universe. Thanks to our curiosity, imagination and urge to explore, we now know that planets like our Earth are nothing special in the cosmos. The Sun is just one ordinary star among hundreds of billions in our galaxy, the Milky Way. With the world’s most powerful telescopes, we are able to explore more and more of the Universe. What we have found so far has surpassed even the wildest expectations of scientists as well as authors of science fiction. Most stars have planets — it turns out they are more common than we thought. A huge diversity of different worlds is out there, just waiting to be discovered. Join as we explore these new worlds!
