Applied Freemasonry | Join our Masonic Education Program 2018-02-12T14:43:53+00:00


Are you getting the most out of your Masonic Journey?

If you have access to the timeless lessons of The Craft, but don’t know exactly how to apply them to your life, you are missing the essence of Freemasonry. Let’s walk together on this part of your Journey. 

Why should I join the Applied Freemasonry program?

We always hear the expression which claims that “Freemasonry makes good men better”. I would argue that instead, Freemasonry gives good men the tools to become better. However, how good is it to have access to the best tools of the world, if we don’t know how to use them properly. That is where the Applied Freemasonry program comes in.

Gaining access to the Tools of Freemasonry is a privilege we share; However, not everyone has the good fortune to receive the continued guidance and support to unlock those lessons and find practical ways to apply them to their personal lives. Within the Applied Freemasonry program, not only will we help you decipher the practical aspects of The Craft, but we will be there when you need the support to apply those lessons to your life.

Who is behind the Applied Freemasonry program?


The Winding Stairs was conceived and developed by Bro:. Juan Sepúlveda, a professional artist, public speaker, and Master Mason. A member of Orange Blossom Lodge No. 80 under the jurisdiction of The Most Worshipful Grand Lodge of Free & Accepted Masons of Florida.

Brother Juan’s vision has been to provide a growing collection of masonic education resources and Freemasonry-inspired works of art. By using his artistic and presentation skills, Bro:. Sepulveda wants to help his fellow Brothers on their respective journeys in search of Light.

Bro. Juan Sepúlveda is the host of The Winding Stairs Freemasonry Podcast and co-host of The Masonic Roundtable, two of the leading Masonic Podcasts in the world. He travels regularly around the country, visiting Lodges where he speaks on subjects related to the practical application of Freemasonry.

Brother Juan Sepúlveda’s work has been featured in these publications:


Here’s what Brothers are saying about Applied Freemasonry:

“If you are not getting the educational and philosophical experience you want at your lodge, the Applied Freemasonry program is the place you will find it.”
Chris S., Dickinson Lodge No. 1324 AF & AM, Dickinson, TX
“Juan Sepulveda has done so much planning for this program. He provides so much insight that you can’t help but learn. He is a natural born teacher.”
Mike H., Painesville, Ohio
” the small focused group approach using modern technology allows us to connect on a local feeling level, while being around the country or world. It really helps us to build up others, but just as importantly, ourselves… With brothers encouraging us along the way.

The experience is likely why you joined in the first place… So why not check it out?”

Jakob B, Jamestown, North Dakota
“Brother Juan Sepulveda has provided a wonderful avenue for getting more out of Freemasonry. More specifically, he has found a way to help us get the most out of the working tools of Freemasonry…”
Mike H., Painesville, OH
“I wanted to learn, subdue my passions, and improve myself. Since going through the degrees, and even being active in my lodge, I hadn’t figured out how to actually accomplish those three goals. This program has laid out basic, practical steps to shed some light on my three goals.”
Justin M., Newton, MS
