The Sound of Soul

Link visible for attendees

Seeking spiritual growth? Sing HU! Experience a spiritual tool that can help transform your life at a Sound of Soul event.

You are invited to chant the word HU—an ancient, sacred name for God that has been sung for thousands of years in many lands for spiritual unfoldment. It is the Sound of Soul.

Eckankar in New Jersey is offering a free, repeating Zoom event for all to experience the Sound of Soul. In these special hour-long events, you will hear a beautiful contemplation seed and have the opportunity to sing HU (pronounced “hue”) for about 15 to 20 minutes. This is followed by a brief, quiet contemplation and spiritual conversation with others of like heart. Chanting HU can uplift people of any religion, culture, or walk of life.

Discover some of the many benefits of HU:
• Inner peace and calm
• Divine love
• Expanded awareness
• Spiritual self-discovery and growth
• Healing of the heart

If you’ve never sung HU before, you can learn more about it and listen to a short sample of thousands of people singing this love song to God at hearhu.org: https://www.eckankar.org/hu.html

The event will be hosted on Zoom, and the 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.

Spiritual Conversations

Link visible for attendees

“Sometimes the Holy Spirit may work in a gentle way. It may give you just a nudge, a feeling of how to act, what to do.”

―Harold Klemp, Love, the Keystone of Life, p.77

ECKANKAR in New Jersey is inviting you to this free Zoom event.

Held on the 4th Wednesday of each month from 7 - 8pm EST, our Spiritual Conversations are informal, relaxed, and free. Anyone may attend. A different aspect of spirituality is featured each month.

Discussion Topics:

June 22: Let's Discuss Divine Guidance

How do we open our lives to divine love and guidance? How do you recognize your inner guidance? Do you hear it, see it, feel it in your gut, get it in your dreams, or just know it? Each of us has a unique connection and relationship with that ”something” which is beyond us, whether you call it the universe, the Life Force, Holy Spirit, your higher self, God, or a spiritual guide. Join us to share your insights and experiences. Try a creative contemplative exercise to help deepen your special connection to the divine presence in your life. Divine help is as close as your heartbeat.

For more insight on the topic, we invite you to check out this free e-booklet Divine Guidance – Gifts of Dreams, Nudges, and Signs (https://www.eckankar.org/wp-content/uploads/2022/04/Divine-Guidance_eBooklet.pdf)
