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.
“Kirk MacNulty has produced a series of deceptively small essays on Freemasonry. Each is only two to five pages, and yet as a whole they address the profound questions: ‘Why are we here, and what is the Craft for?’ This book is a delight for the Mason who likes to ponder, to speculate . . . to think.”
