Are You a Spiritual Adventurer?

Are you intrigued by questions such as:

How do past lives affect my life today?

What is my recurring dream trying to tell me?

What is my spiritual destiny?

If so, you can connect with other like-minded Souls and learn new ways of exploring your inner worlds. Join us and meet people from the Barrie area who share your interest in spiritual experiences and personal growth.

We offer informal discussions on spiritual topics, Eckankar classes, seminars and worship services, and uplifting spiritual exercises that will help you to explore your inner worlds and to thrive spiritually. Our goals are to help our members validate and understand their spiritual experiences, and gain insights to explore the meaning behind them, thereby enriching our spiritual lives. These experiences can include meeting loved ones on the other side, learning from spiritual guides, following our intuition or inner guidance, hearing spiritual sounds, seeing spiritual lights, and discovering how spiritual realities can guide our daily lives.

There is no cost to attend as we explore topics such as:

• Have you had a spiritual experience?

• Understanding the spiritual meaning of your dreams

• Creating your world with the spiritual laws of life

• Angels, masters and spiritual guides

• Dreams, past lives and out-of-body experience

• And many more ...

This group is organized and sponsored by members of Eckankar as a free community service. Eckankar is an ancient spiritual teaching that helps people to make spiritual experiences an everyday reality in their lives.

Experience HU: The Sound of Soul (Group Contemplation & Conversation)

Join us to experience the Sound of Soul (https://eckankarblog.org/sound-of-soul/). Discover your inner guidance, healing for body, mind, and spirit, and a higher form of creativity by chanting this sacred sound. HU is a sacred sound and ancient mantra. It is an ancient name for God that has been sung for thousands of years in many lands for spiritual unfoldment. HU can uplift people of any religion, culture, or walk of life. You’re invited to chant HU for 20 minutes, contemplate for a few minutes, and then enjoy a spiritual conversation along with complimentary light refreshments. Here is a two-minute video on the HU Song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e_afRdPjU-I Regardless of your beliefs or faith, you can sing HU to bring more Divine Love into your life. This simple contemplation can also bring you an experience with the Light and Sound of God, a direct communication from Spirit that can transform and uplift your consciousness. When you sing HU and sit in quiet contemplation, the Light may appear as brightness or colors on your inner visual screen. The Sound may be musical or the sounds of nature, such as the wind or the ocean. Singing HU can calm your mind, inspire a sense of peace, and bring insights into your life. Many people feel that singing HU with a group helps them to set aside the chatter of the mind and more fully immerse themselves in the spiritual experiences that this contemplation can provide. Some feel a vortex of spiritual energy that allows them to emerge refreshed. Sponsored by Eckankar—The Path of Spiritual Freedom

ON Eckankar Seminar: Past Lives, Dreams & Soul Travel—Keys to Spiritual Truth

Have you had a hint of a past life? A lucid dream of spiritual significance? A sense of yourself as Soul, distinct from your physical body? There is a spiritual side to every experience or event. These experiences can provide insights to gain spiritual wisdom. Eckankar teaches simple spiritual exercises that can be used by people of any faith to find answers to their questions about this life and the afterlife. A spiritual exercise can be as simple as relaxing and singing the word HU, an ancient name for God that can bring peace and divine love. As we practice these special exercises we learn that each of us is Soul, a spark of God sent to this world to gain spiritual experience. Come explore Past Lives, Dreams, and Soul Travel at this dynamic seminar through interactive workshops, roundtables, and inspiring talks, and learn how these three keys can open the door to greater spiritual freedom and divine love.

Cultivating Spiritual Experiences—Part 1: The Call of Soul—Have You Heard It?

You are warmly invited to Part 1 of "Cultivating Spiritual Experiences," a practical, interactive three-part series. Part 1: The Call of Soul—Have You Heard It? "If you are a sincere seeker of truth, you realize that something within you is constantly pushing you from the nest. You know the answers you seek do exist somewhere in the world. This inner force that pushes you to find the answers is an urge you have no control over. It is the call of Soul." —Harold Klemp, Spiritual Experiences Guidebook (https://www.spiritualexperience.org/), pg. 3 Many of us have felt a spiritual hunger for truth, freedom, and deeper insights into our lives. The inner force that pushes us from the nest is also beckoning us to learn to fly, spiritually. Join us in the first event of this series, to discuss, share, and explore: • What is the Call of Soul? • What kind(s) of spiritual experiences have you had? • How does one access "the Temple Within"? • How do spiritual exercises work? …and more. Come to share your thoughts and personal experiences, and listen while other spiritual seekers share theirs. You'll also have an opportunity to try a spiritual exercise that may help you discover answers to your innermost questions. Complimentary refreshments, good company, and good conversation. Never any fee. See you there! * * * Overview and Purpose of this Three-Part Series This special three-part series is designed to show people how to cultivate their own spiritual experiences and to share spiritual tools and simple spiritual exercises which can help anyone develop a greater awareness of the next step in their journey to fulfill their spiritual destiny. In a North American Pew research study, one person in three reported having a spiritual experience of some kind. These experiences can range from unusual coincidences to lucid or flying dreams, feelings of great love or protection, out of body or near-death experiences... and many others. But is it actually possible to cultivate spiritual experiences ... and to get personal answers or insight into our most compelling questions in life? Join us to learn and share in this special three-part series, based upon the Spiritual Experiences Guidebook (https://www.spiritualexperience.org/) by Harold Klemp, the spiritual leader of Eckankar. This beautifully formatted guidebook can help you cultivate transformative spiritual experiences that go beyond meditation. (Complimentary Guidebook included for attendees, while supplies last).
