What we're about

Have you had a vivid dream? Or have you experienced intuition, an unusual Sound or Light, or had out of body travels? Do you have an affinity to specific places or cultures, or recall events from a past life? Ever wondered what your true purpose is in life, or always felt there was something more? Are you looking for inner peace and wisdom? You are not alone.

The purpose of this Meetup group is to provide a common meeting ground for all who have had, or would like to have, a life-changing spiritual experience. We provide a forum for open-hearted sharing of spiritual experiences by people from any and all religious backgrounds and walks of life. You can discuss those special experiences you have had and yet may not fully understand. We hope you will discover some valuable tools to enhance your personal spiritual path, and learn "spiritual exercises" to more deeply explore your inner worlds. All are Welcome!

Other goals of this Meetup group are to help people:

• validate and gain insight into their own spiritual experiences,

• understand what their experiences really mean,

• learn new and advanced ways of exploring their inner worlds.

This Meetup group, sponsored by Eckankar in Knoxville, is a spiritual resource for people of all faiths and beliefs. Eckankar is the Path of Spiritual Freedom. It is an individual creative practice to experience and explore past lives, dreams and Soul Travel. We are here in this Meetup group as a community service, to provide you with opportunities to share your spiritual experiences and offer resources to help you learn how to have more!

Meetup-group activities may include:

• spiritual-exploration classes,

• Sound of Soul events,

• ECK Light and Sound Services.

Knoxville ECKANKAR Center

Knoxville ECK Center Re-Opening!

*** Please Note: The Knoxville Eckankar Center has _Moved_ to a Different Suite #113 in the same Suburban Office Plaza (still at 301 S. Gallaher View Road). We are now around the back, with easy first floor access. Look for the familiar Big Blue Star in the Window! :-)

Our Knoxville Eckankar Center has *Re-Opened*! Everyone is invited, but there are a number of rules we need to follow:

0. If you are uncomfortable, or worried about being at risk for COVID, then feel free to stay home and join us on the inner.

1. If you have a fever, or feel sick (even if just a Cold or cough), please stay home and join us on the inner.

2. Everyone who comes to the ECK Center will need to wear a mask. There are not guaranteed to be any extra masks at the Center, so please bring your own cloth mask.

3. Since we have to wear a mask at all times, we can't have food after our services as this would require removal of our masks.

4. We will try to keep social distancing as best we can. For example, if we sit in every other seat in the circle we can accommodate 12 people at the new Center. 15 would be the absolute max in the Center itself. If we have too many people at a particular activity, then we will consider moving outside where we can spread out more.

5. Social distancing will require us to be more mindful of things we have come to love such as hugs and handshakes. There is not a strict rule against these, but certainly not encouraged.

Again, if you don't feel comfortable attending, or following the rules,
it is fine to stay home and join the circle of love on the inner.

Thanks Much and May the Blessings Be!

The ECK “Light and Sound” Service is Eckankar’s version of a “Worship Service”, yet this is actually very much like the regular monthly Meetup discussions that we hold together to discuss various spiritual topics.

An ECK Clergy reads a passage or two from the Eckankar writings and then facilitates a vibrant group discussion based on the reading. The last portion of the service features the special gift of a selected Spiritual Exercise of ECK, which is an opportunity for You to go into contemplation and explore your own divine inner worlds.

People from all walks of life share their perspectives and experiences to celebrate a life lived in harmony with Divine Spirit. Dynamic speakers and original creative arts demonstrate the gifts found through daily practice of the spiritual principles taught in Eckankar. Find out how singing HU, an ancient name for God, can open your heart to God's love.

You are invited to come and experience spiritual growth and fellowship as you explore what could be your next spiritual step.

All are welcome to come and share with us in this beautiful loving discussion.

May the Blessings Be.

As Soul, You have the God knowledge within you!

Share your insights and spiritual experiences in a lively one hour, online conversation with other like-hearted folks. Spiritual experiences touch us at the very core of our being. You are Soul—an eternal, unique, divine spark of God. For the next year, on a monthly basis we’ll meet, via Zoom, on the second Sunday of each month at 10:00 a.m. Central, 11:00 a.m. Eastern. Here are the first three months:

February 13 theme: Miraculous Coincidences

April 10 theme: Attitudes Create Your World

Take a look at the attached Soul Adventure, a quarterly e-magazine offered by Eckankar.org, the Path of Spiritual Freedom, the inspiration for our conversations. A Soul adventure can awaken you to more of the love, wisdom, and creative powers already within your heart. And in the most natural and extraordinary ways. We hope you’ll join us to share your Soul Adventures!

Come Experience the “Sound of Soul”, a free event shared every 4th Sunday at 11:00am in the Knoxville ECKANKAR Center!

The Sound of Soul (https://www.eckankar.org/hu.html)

“Welcome to the worlds of HU, an ancient, universal name for God. This sacred word can spiritually uplift people of any religion, culture, or walk of life. It is freely given - a gift beyond measure. . . .

. . . Love is love.

And you are that. HU is the Sound of Soul.”

- Sri Harold Klemp, The Sound of Soul

You have the potential for greater happiness, love, and understanding. Singing HU can bring these to you—through the Light and Sound of God (http://www.eckankar.org/light.html).

Throughout the ages, followers of many spiritual traditions have used prayer, the singing of holy words, and meditation to bring themselves closer to God. In the same way, those who have discovered HU, an ancient name for God, sing it for their spiritual upliftment.

Regardless of your beliefs or religion, you can sing HU to become happier and more secure in God's love.

"HU is woven into the language of life. It is the Sound of all sounds. It is the wind in the leaves, falling rain, thunder of jets, singing of birds, the awful rumble of a tornado. . . . Its sound is heard in laughter, weeping, the din of city traffic, ocean waves, and the quiet rippling of a mountain stream. And yet, the word HU is not God. It is a word people anywhere can use to address the Originator of Life."

—Harold Klemp (http://www.eckankar.org/Harold/index.html)
