Contemplating Craft Freemasonry: Working the Way of the Craftsman
By: W. Kirk MacNulty
Contemplating Craft Freemasonry is an intriguing manual for Masons who desire to explore the Craft as a contemplative spiritual practice.
Relying upon insights drawn from Jungian psychology as well as from the Western esoteric tradition’s essential sources—Neoplatonism, Kabbalah, and Hermetic thought—W. Kirk MacNulty encourages the reader to reflect deeply upon the symbolism and ceremonies of the Masonic experience.
The perfect companion to the author’s enduring Masonic classic, The Way of the Craftsman, this accessible workbook offers dozens of contemplations that assist the reader in exploring the inner teachings of Freemasonry on an initiatic journey from the center of the lodge to the Temple of his own being.
Freemasonry and the Birth of Modern Science
By: Robert Lomas
Until the sixteenth century, people believed in magic as a way of explaining how the world worked. Indeed Queen Elizabeth I had a court magician, John Dee.
However during the reign of the Stuart kings magic was killed and science took its place.
This change came about because a group of men met in London and decided to set up a society to study the mechanisms of nature.
Yet the men who founded this society in 1660 – including Robert Moray, Christopher Wren, Elias Ashmole and John Evelyn – were not only the first scientists but the last sorcerers, performing chemical experiments with powdered Unicorn horn…
They had also fought on different sides in the Civil War. The story of how they came together comes as a revelation and will change your view of history and science forever.
Approaching the Middle Chamber
By: Jaime Paul Lamb, Jason Marshall, Matthew Anthony
In the culmination of the second section of the Fellowcraft degree, prior to entering the symbolic “middle chamber” of King Solomon’s Temple, the Craftsman must ascend a flight of winding stairs, where important lessons are bestowed upon the Craftsman for future reflection and study.
Unfortunately, few Craftsman have undertaken the study of the Seven Liberal Arts and Sciences, perhaps due to the fact that prior to this book by Brother Lamb, few books have taken an in-depth look at the Seven Liberal Arts and Sciences.
This is a well-written, well-researched, and very approachable book that explores how the Seven Liberal Arts and Sciences relate to Freemasonry, as well as other esoteric traditions.
This book is an instant classic, and a must read for anyone who has tread upon the flight of winding stairs to the middle chamber.
