Spiritual Experiences Guidebook: Soul Travel—Expanding Consciousness

Ralph Thornton Community Centre

"Whenever Soul reaches the far orbits of the inner planes through Soul Travel, the human heart opens to God's all-consuming love. "It is our very purpose to discover that love." —Harold Klemp, Spiritual Experiences Guidebook (https://www.spiritualexperience.org/), pg. 23 What is Soul Travel? Where can it take us? And how can it help us in our spiritual journey today? In this interactive discussion, we'll explore the answers to these questions and learn about: • Going beyond prayer and meditation with spiritual Light and Sound; • How to connect with Divine Spirit; • How to work with Spiritual Masters; • How to explore past lives and dreams; • How to voyage into the high spiritual worlds, and the geography of those worlds; ...and more! Come to share your thoughts and your personal experiences, and listen while other spiritual seekers share theirs. You'll also have an opportunity to try a spiritual exercise or two which may help you discover answers to your innermost questions or pave the way to have a Soul Travel experience of your own if you haven't already had one. Good company, good conversation. Never any fee. Hope to see you there! * * * This discussion is the third in an informal, practical and interactive series of three Meetups, 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. Please feel free to join us even if you have not attended previous meetups in this series. A complimentary copy of this beautiful Spiritual Experiences Guidebook will be available for all attendees, while supplies last.

Experience HU: The Sound of Soul (Group Contemplation & Conversation)

Ralph Thornton Community Centre

"Sing HU once or twice a day for ten or fifteen minutes to spiritualize your state of consciousness. "During the time you are singing HU, you are saying to Divine Spirit, "I've opened myself to you. Give me the understanding and the wisdom to meet the waves of life, and the problems, troubles, and whatever else. Give me the strength to meet life."" —Harold Klemp, The Sound of Soul (https://www.eckbooks.org/items/The_Sound_of_Soul-1975-0.html), p. 34 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. HU is the Sound behind all sounds, woven into the language of life. It is the wind in the leaves, falling rain, thunder of jets, singing of birds and 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. HU offers balance, wisdom and wonder—it brings alignment with your true purpose and highest good. Join us to experience this sacred Sound of Soul for yourself. We sing HU for 20 minutes, followed by a five-minute silent contemplation, and then a group discussion. Stay after for friendly conversation with like hearted individuals.

Advanced Spiritual Study as a Next Step on the Road Home to God

Ralph Thornton Community Centre

Many individuals have heard of Eckankar, the path of Spiritual Freedom, but fewer know that it offers an annually renewable advanced spiritual study program. This meetup offers an opportunity for you to learn about this program and assess its value to you in relation to your spiritual goals. EXPERIENCE THE MIRACLE OF SPIRITUAL GROWTH A true spiritual teaching makes a link between God and you—and it provides a guide to help make your journey as easy and direct as possible. Eckankar has an inner and outer living guide. He has made the journey into the heart of God but has returned to help us on our way to Self-Realization and, ultimately, God-Realization. This guide is the Mahanta, the Living ECK Master. The next step on your spiritual journey can be linking up with him through membership in Eckankar. You will then experience the awesome miracle of advanced spiritual growth—a life of joy, meaning, and creativity. WHO ARE THE MEMBERS OF ECKANKAR? Members of Eckankar (ECKists) come from all walks of life. ECKists are homemakers, business people, and retirees. They are professionals, educators, scientists, and farmers. They come from all age-groups, all races and nationalities, and all religious backgrounds. Like most people, ECKists have families, careers, and daily struggles. They live a life of joyful participation in the mainstream of society. ECKists know they're responsible for their own experiences in life. They know tomorrow is the result of today's thoughts, feelings, and actions. They also know that giving love and service to their family and community is one way to increase their understanding of God's love. REACHING YOUR HIGHEST SPIRITUAL POTENTIAL Did you know you can resolve all your earthly karma in this lifetime? That the spiritual achievements of the great saints and mystics are available to everyone? With the Mahanta, the Living ECK Master as your guide on the path of Eckankar, you can scale spiritual heights—while living an involved, responsible life in your home and community. The ECK teachings place you on an advanced track back home to God. Experiencing the Light and Sound of God gives you the momentum to start working off all the karma that has held you back from spiritual freedom and true happiness. More information here: https://www.eckankar.org/Membership/benefits.html https://www.eckankar.org/Membership/discourse.html INITIATIONS: CLIMB THE STAIRWAY TO SPIRITUAL FREEDOM Members of Eckankar (ECKists) work toward higher states of awareness through the Eckankar initiations. Each initiation is a true awakening. It opens you to a whole new world of God's Light and Sound. It also imparts to you a new sense of spiritual stability and strength. The ECK initiations link Soul directly to the ECK, Divine Spirit, for spiritual liberation in this lifetime. Each initiation is a sacred and joyous occasion for a spiritual seeker, for it brings an ever-increasing knowledge of and love for God. And it gives new insights into why certain things in your life play out as they do. Most ECKists receive their First Initiation during the first year of membership, and it often comes in a dream. ECKists take at least two years to explore the ECK teachings to prove to themselves what Eckankar has to offer. After two years, you may decide to make a deeper commitment to your spiritual awakening and request the Second Initiation. This initiation marks a major turning point in your spiritual life.
