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

Living Life with Spiritual Grace (Discussion)

Bell Book and Candle

"Some days when our tempers wear thin, when the pressures of the day have been too great, then it’s just a little bit harder. We say words that we wish we hadn’t uttered. We wish we could take them back, but it’s too late. We’ve hurt someone who means a lot to us. And so then we go to them and say, “I’m sorry. I love you.” If we can have a little grace to do that, life goes on again, and we are just slightly better in a spiritual sense than we were before." —Harold Klemp, The Slow Burning Love of God (http://www.eckbooks.org/items/The_Slow_Burning_Love_of_God-17-0.html), p. 161. Have you had days like these? How did you lift yourself out of them? What spiritual lessons did you gain in the process? What about the days when everything seems to flow with ease and grace? Do you notice a difference within yourself on those days? Your outer world can mirror the joy you feel inside, and living life with spiritual grace can be a breeze! Come to share your stories and experiences and hear those of others. You'll also have an opportunity to try a spiritual exercise or two that can help us connect with divine love and bring a greater sense of grace into our lives. Stay afterward to continue your conversations over complimentary refreshments. No fee to attend. Hope to see you there!
