Category: Alumni Events

Brussels Campus
Students, Alumni & Third parties

Join our 9th lecture in the Alumni activity series, the Wisdom Principles. This series consists of 10 evening lectures, given by top-level speakers and experts in the domain of human development.

The aim of this lecture is to quite simply present what freemasonry is all about. In the Belgian context this society is largely unknown and veiled in secrecy. In this lecture Professor Jean Paul Van Bendegem wants to lift a corner of that veil. The lecture consists of five parts: (1) what can be known about freemasonry, (2) what are the historical origins, (3) what is the situation in Belgium, (4) what does a freemason actually do and what role do rituals and symbols play, and (5) what are his personal experiences after 35 years. 

The programme:

6:30 pm     Registration & Welcome
7:00 pm     Start lecture
9:00 pm     Networking drink
