Masonic Con  – some facts

You may have heard the term”Masonic Con” or “Masonicon” and wondered what it was and what they are about.

They are not just meetings; they’re opportunities to learn about the history, symbols and philosophy of masonry.  At the same time, they bring masons closer together and reinforcing their sense of brotherhood.

So what is a Masonic Con

It’s a immersive experience where masonic enthusiasts find themselves in the company of renowned names from all corners of the Masonic world. Imagine a day filled with back to back lectures, each delivered by a luminary in the field, creating an experience of Masonic education that is both enriching and thrilling.

Wht Attend our Masonic Con 

This year’s conference is being held at the Rock Garden location of the Royal Botanical Garden, in the sun-filled atrium and gives participants day-long access to the grounds and the famous “mindfulness walk”.

What better way to centre the mind to prepare for a day of Masonic education and enlightenment! We’ll explore the concept of taking men from “rude matter into fine form” by: learning about ego and man’s personality; presenting scholarly work in a Lodge discussing philosophy; and then using a new book authored by local Masonic scholar to promote discussion and debate in our lodges on key and sometimes congtroversial topics.

Later, we will enjoy a Panel discussion of Ontario’s three Observant Lodges, and facilitated by the Grand Master of Ancient Free and Accepted Masons of Canada in the Province of Ontario.

Following lunch, we will Explore how Lodges can improve Masons’ experience of wonder, enlightenment and awe through: establishing a chamber of reflection to prepare our candidates before Initiation; using music for meditation and learning about sacred mathematics in music; and how the banquet room can be transformed into a sacred space by simply changing the layout.

To complete our day’s journey we will enjoy a Keynote Speaker who will bring our day’s sessions together with an engaging presentation about Transformation and Enlightenment in the Masonic experience.
