Online Ritual Memorization Workshop This Thursday 4/30

by Christopher Hodapp

Lots of Masons are taking the opportunity of the COVID lockdown to brush up on their rusty ritual skills, or learn new parts they never had time to tackle before. That's always a good thing. But if you're one of those folks who struggle with memorization and have scrupulously avoided taking on anything besides your catechisms after you joined, there's a Brother who wants to help. 

This Thursday evening, April 30th, Worshipful Brother Anthony Kofi A. Osei-Tutu, Past Master of New York's famed Mariners Lodge 67, will be offering a Ritual Memorization Workshop online via Zoom. Anthony has been a Freemason for over a decade and has spent the majority of that time researching the Masonic symbolism and the arts of memory. He has trained dozens of Masons to improve their memory to learn Masonic ritual and is well known for his lectures on esoterics and ritual memorization. His website, www.supermemorize.com offers several courses online.

From the announcement of Thursday's online class:
Memorizing ritual is important, but no one teaches you how to memorize, so for most using outdated methods, memorization is a chore. That changes now. The Ritual Memorization Workshop will help you save time and energy memorizing Masonic ritual. You will feel more confident and motivated to tackle ritual of any size, and you will develop a deeper understanding of the Craft. We will dissect your current memory method, eliminate inefficiencies, and give you a series of tips, tricks, techniques, and ideas to turn it into a finely tuned tool of Masonic instruction.
  • The ancient reason Masons memorize ritual
  • The five Myths of Memory that are hurting your inner Ritual Rockstar
  • The simple Secret to Memorization and improving your memory (supermemorization) as confirmed by science and ancient practices
  • Why preparing before you study ritual will save you time and give you confidence
  • How to make ritual easier to study and recall by turning it into a catechism
  • Advanced memory tools
In case you're worried about evens and cowdroppers overhearing, Brother Anthony's workshops are not tyled and are open to the public when he presents them in person. So there's no need to lock yourself in the hall closet or sit in the car with your smartphone to participate in this video workshop.

The session begins Thursday, April 30th at 7:30PM. To participate, register HERE and you will be sent log-in information.
