What we're about

Deep in your heart, do you hunger for something there are no words for? Do you ever wonder why so many things in life seem random and appear to "just happen"?

Have you ever dreamed of being all you could be?  Are you truly what you want to be?  What if it were your birthright to know answers to the greatest mysteries of life? What if you learned this has always been your spiritual heritage as a Soul—a divine spark of God? What if all this and more has been waiting silently in your heart for you to discover? What if your choosing to read this today was only the beginning of a spiritual adventure that could span the ages? What if all this—is true?

Explore your deepest spiritual questions, and meet people of like mind and heart.

What if it were your birthright to know answers to the greatest mysteries of life? What if you learned this has always been your spiritual heritage as a Soul—a divine spark of God? What if all this and more has been waiting silently in your heart for you to discover? What if your choosing to read this today was only the beginning of a spiritual adventure that could span the ages? What if—all this is true?

Meet with people who share a passion for spirituality—who seek to actually 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.

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.

Breaking Our Hard Human Shell and Touching the Divine Spark of God Within

Link visible for attendees

Light and Sound, just like the rain and the wind, come to everyone equally and alike. But some people benefit more than others.

It’s up to you in your state of consciousness.

And your state of consciousness depends upon whether or not you care enough to open yourself to this inner guidance of Divine Spirit so that you can have some of the experiences that are necessary to break through this hard human shell.

The search for God requires a deep yearning. Soul hears the Voice of God and wants to return to Its home in heaven. In the meantime, it’s up to Soul, in one way or another, to find a path that gives the help It needs to take this step.

─Harold Klemp, ECK Wisdom on Inner Guidance, page 53
(ECK Wisdom on Inner Guidance (p. 28). ECKANKAR. Kindle Edition.)

Inner guidance often arrives unannounced at just the right time! The truth is that the inner voice of spirit─our inner guidance─is always about something important and needed to expand our consciousness. Hidden in the stories of life's hardships are always experiences that are spiritually important. It is often the little somethings in life so close to the heart─but somehow forgotten as we turn life's pages day-to-day─that are so very spiritually important! These little important things we've forgotten are quite often the very keys needed to unlock the Holy places in the heart and the Love of God. This discovery can change your life!

You do not have to bring anything other than an open heart, receptive consciousness and a question! Countless blessings can come from sharing our hearts with others. Discussions often prompt the telling of heartfelt personal stories gleaned from the rich tapestry of life experiences. This event is open to you, your family, and friends.

Do you enjoy sharing experiences—or maybe you'd just like to ask some questions? Come, listen and perhaps share your heart.

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

Link visible for attendees

“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. 7

The SOUND of SOUL─Discover How Love Can Be the Doorway to Spiritual Freedom

"Love is the doorway to spiritual freedom. And the Light and Sound of God opens that doorway of love. You must go thru this doorway. You must have the love of God transform your life to realize the gift of spiritual freedom.

"The song of HU will bring you that love. The song of HU will bring you that gift."

─Harold Klemp, Touching the Face of God, page 7

This one-hour-long SOUND of SOUL event provides an opportunity to experience singing the sacred word HU, an ancient for God. Each event begins with an explanation of what singing HU can bring to your life. We will then sing HU for about 15 minutes followed by quiet contemplation. Afterward, there will be an open spiritual discussion and sharing of experiences.

HU, when sung, can uplift people of any religion, culture, or walk of life. HU is freely given─a gift beyond measure. HU can be the key to finding spiritual freedom in your life. Could HU be something you've been looking for?

You, your family and friends are invited. Lite refreshments may follow.
