What we're about

Are you a spiritual adventurer? 
Meet with people who share a passion for spirituality—who seek to have spiritual experiences, such as lucid or significant dreams, out-of-body travel, past life recall, or encounters with spiritual masters—and to grow from these experiences, bringing more meaning, purpose and joy to daily life.

We are an open, friendly spiritual community for people of all faiths. Explore your deepest spiritual questions, share your experiences and insights, and gain greater understanding of your unique spiritual journey.

Several associated meetup groups in the Sierra Foothills, Sacramento, and Auburn areas post both in-person, hybrid, and online events on this site.

Is the Game of Life Rigged?

Link visible for attendees

Sometimes, it feels like we have no say in how our lives are occurring. Is it fate, kismet, our destiny? Or maybe we have more of a say in it than we think. It’s time for full disclosure!

“Every single moment of your life is the handiwork of a higher cause. And you can know what it is. Hint: God’s love is the key, and spiritual freedom is the goal.” —Harold Klemp, The Road to Spiritual Freedom, back cover

We all want to feel that we have some control over our lives. Often, though, life seems to be dishing up all sorts of challenges and obstacles while at the same time handing out amazing gifts and opportunities. So much is happening that we feel like life is coming at us full throttle. We then have to tap dance as best we can to survive. But is that the real story of what’s going on?

Join us for an enlightening discussion as we explore:

  • how the journey of life really works,
  • your true purpose in life and how to live it fully,
  • how free will and self-determination work with karma, and

Come learn a spiritual exercise that can help you delve more deeply into understanding just how everything in your life has purpose and meaning — all designed to help you experience greater Divine Love, peace, and joy. Oh, and how to get the most out of life’s lessons!

All are welcome — family and friends — so come share your experiences or just listen, as we explore together.

The Hero's Journey: In-Person Workshop

Needs a location

"Have you ever felt a hunger for something you can’t even put words to?

"What if you are actually on a journey—a quest—that has spanned the ages, continents, lifetimes? It has survived victories, tragedies, wealth and poverty, unimaginable gains and losses. Death and rebirth, time and again.

"The journey is worth everything. Because you are the hero, and your saga continues until the quest is fulfilled. —Harold Klemp, "The Hero's Journey"

You are Soul, and Soul's journey is the hero's journey. As each Soul is unique, no two journeys will be exactly the same. But there are common stages, tests and trainings, lessons and blessings, along the way.

This journey takes many, many lifetimes. We generally move forward in each lifetime. Sometimes we slip back. Sometimes we just rest. All is Soul's choice.

In this workshop, we'll explore keys to the Hero's Journey, including:
• waking up to who you are and why you're here,
• connecting with Spiritual Masters and Divine Spirit,
• facing fears, challenges, setbacks,
• building daily spiritual practices,
• fulfilling your quest, and
• becoming the Hero

Join other Awakening Souls as we share experiences and insights, try spiritual exercises and practices, develop skills, ask questions and offer suggestions from our own journeys.

View Life from a Different Perspective to Gain a Broader View of Truth

Link visible for attendees

How important is your perspective?

“As sure as you're alive, if you can make it over the next hurdle, through the next stormy sea, your view of life will change. So will your viewpoint on truth. Why? Because the experience made you wiser. You will have a broader view of truth."
—Harold Klemp, Truth Has No Secrets, p. 60

Join us as we look at life from a different angle to help us—
• Grow spiritually
• Embrace change
• Be happier
• Be more empathetic
• Love life more

We invite you to explore different choices and perspectives. All are welcome to share experiences and points of view, ask questions, or just listen.

The Joy and Wonder of Soul — An ECK Light & Sound Service

Link visible for attendees

Would you like to experience the joy and wonder of Soul? The Spiritual Exercises of ECK, such as singing HU, give you confidence in yourself. You learn that you are Soul, you are eternal. Singing HU each day can open your awareness to new viewpoints and attitudes.

“As you sing HU, listen for a holy Sound. It may come in any number of ways: like the sound of a rumbling train, a singing bird, buzzing bees, a mellow flute, or even soothing guitars.

“It brings joy and wonder.“ —Harold Klemp, The Sound of Soul, p. 70

Event Details
10:30 am — Enjoy prelude music until the program begins. We encourage you to join this meeting early to avoid system delays.

11:00 am — Program begins. Join people from all walks of life to celebrate a life lived in harmony with Divine Spirit. Speakers and original creative arts demonstrate the gifts found through daily practice of the spiritual principles taught in Eckankar. Experience singing HU, an ancient name for God. You'll discover how it can open your heart to divine love, healing and inner guidance.
