    Freemasonry Down Under | The Lost Interview

    Freemasonry Down Under | The Lost Interview

    Freemasonry Down Under | The Uniqueness of Australian Masonry Freemasonry down under may be slightly different than what you may think. The structure of the organization is very interesting in a way that allows for the ritual to be separate from the administrative side of Masonry. For example, Victoria Freemasons have a CEO who handles the business side of the organization. Interestingly enough, in 2016 this male-only organization was led by a woman. 
    In this episode of The Winding Stairs, I share with you an interview that I had thought I had lost forever. After almost having to hire a cyber forensics team and after many hours of editing, I was able to restore this conversation about how Freemasonry is practiced in Australia. I hope you enjoy this insight.

    A Freemason and a Gentleman

    A Freemason and a Gentleman

    Is a Freemason a Gentleman? It is said that Freemasonry takes good men and makes them better. When applied effectively, any man who follows the tenets of Freemasonry will begin to resemble more and more what we call a gentleman. But, are all Masons gentlemen? Of course not. Just like not all religious people are saints. However, if we are putting to practice what we learn in Freemasonry, we are surely on our way to being regarded as gentlemen. 
    On this episode of The Winding Stairs, I share 3 easy-to-implement tips that can help us really make a difference in our lives and behave more like gentlemen. 
     
    Bonus: I will give you a sneak peek at my podcast called "The Gentlemen's Brotherhood". Although not a Masonic podcast, it shares with my other programs the desire to help men become better. I hope you enjoy this episode.

    Illuminati Mysteries Revealed

    Illuminati Mysteries Revealed

    Although pop culture has a very twisted idea of what The Order of the Illuminati really is or was, there is scholarly work being done today by prominent historian and researchers. Fortunately, some of these professionals are Brothers and have done amazing work at documenting this history and revealing some of the mysteries that tie it to Freemasonry. 
    In this episode of The Winding Stairs, we have a conversation with Brother Josef Wages to discuss his scholarly work on dusting off the details behind Adam Weishaupt's extensive work. Brother Josef is the author of "The Secret School of Wisdom: The Authentic Rituals and Doctrines of The Illuminati" and was heavily involved in the research for the documentary by Brother Johnny Royal, Illuminated Movie.

    Virtual Freemasonry

    Virtual Freemasonry

    Virtual Freemasonry A replacement for traditional Lodges? In the 21st Century, there is no shortage of technologies that can facilitate communication. With the advent of social media, many people have resorted to getting less and less involved in physical activities and social events. Among the changes we have seen with the adoption of social media as a "replacement" for human interaction, is a growth in the number of people that resort to Virtual Freemasonry as their number one source of Masonic Education. Should it replace traditional Lodge meetings altogether? How will Freemasonry look in the coming decades?
     
    On this episode of The Winding Stairs, I sit down with one of the co-hosts of The Masonic Roundtable and one of the officers of Castle Island Virtual Lodge. Two Brothers who are very familiar with Virtual Freemasonry and the digital revolution within the Craft. We hope you enjoy this exploration into Virtual Freemasonry.
