What we're about

We live in a time of unprecedented interest in spirituality. Spiritual experiences are no longer the exclusive domain of religious leaders, saints, and mystics. They are a part of everyday living for millions of people. And these people have questions: Are their experiences real? What do they mean? How can a person have more experiences of the Divine?

Eckankar, the Path of Spiritual Freedom, offers answers. It is an ancient spiritual teaching and a modern-day religion that offers spiritual techniques and resources for an individual to discover truth through personal experience.

The Book of ECK Parables – Online Book Discussion

“At first glance, the one hundred and one stories here may hardly suggest inner transformation – just as the acorn little resembles the mighty oak. But read the stories. It won’t be long before their spiritual seeds start to germinate within you.”

Harold Klemp, The Book of ECK Parables, Volume 2, pg xi

The Book of ECK Parables Volume 2 brings real-life stories from people like you and me into our 2nd Sunday book discussion. We warmly invite you to share this time with us as together, we discover spiritual insights that can be revealing, revitalizing, and even life-changing.

As written so eloquently on the back cover of the book: “In the classroom of life, the lessons of the heart and Soul usually come through hard knocks. Where are the teachers who can show us an easier, faster way? In the tradition of the great spiritual Masters, Sri Harold Klemp, leader of Eckankar, clearly outlines the hidden secrets of God and Self.

These tales give real solutions, but not in the way you’d expect. Physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual – you’ll learn how to tackle tough problems from the higher viewpoint of your true self, Soul. Hard knocks or spiritual gold? It’s up to you. Each experience can build strength, awareness, and a new love for life – when you understand it. These parables could show you how.”

We will cover chapters 7 & 8
Chapter 7 - Love
Chapter 8 - Spiritual Healing

Why is This Happening, and How Can I Fix It? ECK Wisdom on Solving Problems

“When you open yourself to divine truth, the mere fact that you can identify a problem means that you have the solution within you. What you are attempting to achieve through the Spiritual Exercises of ECK is the expansion of consciousness whereby you can better see the solution to your problem.”
─ Harold Klemp, The Golden Heart, p. 88

You are Soul – and have the godlike power of creative imagination within you. You can use this creativity to find solutions for every problem and take charge of your own life.

But how do we tap into those abilities? What’s standing in our way? How can we remove those barriers and create a happier and more productive life for ourselves – even in very difficult times?

During this spiritual discussion, we’ll explore ways to more consciously connect with the Divine power, make true peace with the past, and transform the way we identify and work with problems.

We look forward to seeing you there! Contact Jan at [masked] if you are interested in a free book on this topic and “Spiritual Wisdom on Problem Solving.” It will be mailed to you.
