  • 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).

  • 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.

  • How Do Past Lives Affect Your Life Today? (Spiritual discussion)

    "All of us have lived before. You've had some very good experiences and some very bad experiences. When you come into this life, certain of those experiences are going to be highlighted for you because this is what you need to work out." — Harold Klemp, The Slow Burning Love of God (http://www.eckbooks.org/items/The_Slow_Burning_Love_of_God-17-0.html) , p. 96. How do your past lives affect your life today? You can trace their influence on your relationships, your career, your health— almost every area of your life. Reviewing your past lives can reveal the root of conflicts, the source of repeating patterns, and the answer to unresolved questions. Psychologists can look at present life influences, which is often helpful, but sometimes the root of a problem is much deeper, and the only way to access the answer is to dig through to the source in a past life. You don't need expensive hypnosis sessions to reveal your past lives for you, though. You can learn to discover your past lives for yourself, through special spiritual exercises which will be taught in this unique presentation. You will also be introduced to the inner guides on the higher planes who are waiting to assist you in this spiritual journey. Learn how to get in touch with yourself as Soul, to see who you have been in the past, whom you have loved, whom you have fought, and the actions you took that still resound today. What unresolved trauma still haunts you? Which longings have remained unfulfilled? Is there a link to the talents and blessings you have today? The answers to these questions and an understanding of the spiritual significance of past lives are stepping stones on our spiritual journey towards greater wisdom, freedom and love in our lives! Join us for this fascinating discussion to share your experiences and hear those of others. No fee to attend, just come and enjoy!
