What we're about

Open to all those looking to find more wisdom, love, inner peace and spiritual freedom in their lives, through better understanding of dreams, past lives and the personal way the universe speaks to us daily. Move naturally and easily into higher areas of awareness and help life flow in a smoother and happier direction. One form of personal meditation we explore is known as a "Spiritual Exercise". This form of simple meditation, using your creative imagination, strengthens your inner guidance and helps you recognize your true identity as Soul, an eternal and divine spark of God.

Nothing needs to be taken on faith. Experience it yourself.

Have you had one of the following spiritual experiences? Come and share; learn more about connecting to direct guidance and achieving personal growth.

* Past-life recall or having a sense that you have lived before (in a meditation or dream)

* Dreams -- that opened awareness, expanded your consciousness, told of a future event, gave you an answer

* Out-of-body or near death experience * Seeing an inner light

* Hearing an inner sound

* Inner guidance (angel, spiritual master, departed loved one)

* Knowingness (intuition, coincidence, déjà vu)

* Unconditional love (from a family member, friend, pet, etc.)

* Sense of oneness, divine love

* Connection with all life -- greater awareness, feeling of inner peace

Creative techniques are discussed in these Meetups to further explore our inner worlds. Similar to meditation, yet more active, these contemplation techniques, such as singing the ancient love song to God, HU, (pronounced 'hue") helps with self improvement, brings self empowerment through greater inner understanding, opens consciousness, helps in understanding how karma is created, how to work through it, and gives guidance on how to achieve states of Self and God Realization.

HU, this ancient and sacred word for God, can be found in the Jewish Kabala, Christian Gregorian chant, Buddhism, the Sufi teachings, Chinese Taoism, as well as in the path of Eckankar. It is a universal word with a very high vibration. You are invited to try it anytime you would like, either out loud or silently to experience the effects for yourself. (www.hearHU.org)

We warmly welcome you to join us in our events and discussions that take place in all 5 boroughs, Westchester and Rockland – a common meeting ground for all who have had or would like to have a life-changing spiritual experience.

Our group is sponsored by Eckankar. Experience the Light and Sound of God. This ancient spiritual teaching offers spiritual techniques and resources for an individual to discover truth for themselves.

Online Spiritual Discussion: "Creativity, A Gift from Spirit"

“We like our lives to go easy. We want them to go smoothly. And when they do, it’s interesting—our creativity often goes to sleep. But when things get hard, then we become awake. And the harder they get, if we’re at all spiritual, the more creative we become.

“What keeps people from being creative is the old bugaboo, attachment. That means having a real fondness for some way of doing things or perceiving a thing.

“So we go to sleep. But then when things get really hard, we wake up. And we ask, Now what? What do I do now? What’s the lesson? Where’s the open doorway?”
—Harold Klemp,"Spiritual Lessons from Living", p. 157

How has creativity helped you through difficult situations? How can you allow more of your creative imagination to guide your life?

Our creative imagination helps us deepen our connection with Spirit. It helps us overcome mental and intellectual obstacles. Creativity is the source of simple solutions. It helps us handle change. It means not being limited by convention. Creativity lets us understand the spiritual lesson in every single experience.

Please join us for this spiritual discussion titled “Creativity, A Gift from Spirit “ on Friday, October 22nd, from 7:30 to 8:45 PM, to hear stories and share your own insights on this subject.

The discussion will be hosted on Zoom. The Zoom link will be sent to those who RSVP. You can also join by phone; the phone number will be sent in a later email on the day of the event.

NOTE: We welcome you to invite your friends and family, but please do not forward the meeting link. Ask them to register themselves on Meetup or send a request to [masked] for the link.

When you click the “Attend Online” button to RSVP you may need to login (if you are already a member of this Meetup group) or sign in to create an account.

Please enter the zoom meeting a few minutes early so we can solve any technical issues and start on time.
