What we’re about
Are you a spiritual adventurer?
Meet with people of all different backgrounds who share a passion for spirituality—who seek to have actual spiritual experiences, such as significant dreams, out-of-body travel, past-life recall, and encounters with spiritual beings—and to grow from these experiences to bring more meaning, purpose and joy to daily life. Come share your spiritual experiences—or your desire to have them—in an open, friendly setting where no one is pushing their beliefs on anyone else.
We'll discuss what these experiences mean to us and share techniques we use to explore our inner worlds. Join us to connect with other like-minded Souls and learn new ways of exploring your inner worlds. We offer informal spiritual discussions, workshops and other events that will help you to explore your inner worlds and to thrive spiritually.
Our goals are to help our members validate their spiritual experiences, understand what their experiences really mean, and gain new and advanced ways of exploring their inner worlds.
Our topics include:
*Meditation and Contemplation
*Soul Travel or Out of Body Experiences
*Finding Your Purpose
*Letting Go of Fears
*Creating Your Reality with the Spiritual Laws of Life
*Accessing Your Own Inner Wisdom
*Spiritual Growth and Transformation
*Angels, Masters, and Inner Guides
*How Past Lives Affect Us Today
*Spiritual Wisdom on Relationships, and many more, depending on the interests of the group.
There is never a cost for coming to and participating in our group meetings--RSVP and just come and enjoy!
Sponsored by members of Eckankar as a community service. Eckankar is an ancient spiritual teaching and a modern-day religion that is a resource for all people, whatever your religious background, to make spiritual experiences an everyday reality in your life.

- Network event14 attendees from 6 groups hostingIn-Person Workshop: “The Art of Spiritual Dreaming”ECK Center of Greater New York City, New York, NY
Awaken to the spiritual adventure of your dreams—there is an easy way to begin!
“Dreams touch every level of our life. They may let us glimpse the future, or give suggestions for healing, or share insights into our relationships. Above all, they can and will steer us more directly toward God.”
—Harold Klemp, The Art of Spiritual Dreaming, p. 2
If you seek to know more about your own true nature, your dreams may hold the key to what you’ve been searching for. Your dreams are a portal into the most sacred and mysterious part of yourself.
You are invited to attend an in-person Eckankar sponsored workshop on the “Art of Spiritual Dreaming,” to be held on Sunday, October 1, 2023, 12:00 pm–1:30 pm. This event will take place at the New York City Eckankar Center, 4 West 43rd Street, #503, New York City, NY 10036.
At this workshop we hope to explore the following questions:
· Have you ever had a dream that you will never forget?
· Do you have vivid or lucid dreams but wonder what they mean and how they relate to your life?
· Are you unable to remember your dreams and want to learn how?
· Do you long to connect to your true self—an unlimited, creative, spiritual being?
· Would you like to learn how your dreams can help you to find practical solutions to everyday problems?
· Do you long to live life with a greater sense of purpose, adventure, and love?
Are you looking for people who love sharing dreams? If so, you will find a community of like-minded, openhearted Spiritual Dreamers who welcome you warmly at this workshop.
In this 90-minute hands-on event, we invite you to recognize and share some of the valuable spiritual experiences that you are already having.
You will have the opportunity to:
—Try practical, enjoyable exercises to remember and interpret your dreams.
—Learn how inner dream teachers or spiritual guides offer help and protection.
—Tune in to Divine Spirit as It speaks to you in your daily life—your waking dreams.

You’re invited to take a break during your day to rebalance and connect with that divine part of you, Soul.
“The Sound Current is actually the Voice of God. This Voice, the creative current from God, is like a pebble thrown into a quiet lake, causing ripples to go out. These waves must always come back to the center; it’s the returning wave that we seek.
“This is what Soul is looking for: to return to the God center, the God consciousness.
“Look for this wave. Listen for this sound as you sing the sacred HU.”
-Harold Klemp, The Sound of Soul, p. 71
We'll chant HU, a love song to God, for about 12 minutes, then take time for spiritual discussion and sharing. Feel free to participate for as long as your schedule permits.
