What we're about

Welcome Spiritual Adventurers to the Monterey Spiritual Experiences Group!

Have you had a spiritual experience?

Spiritual experiences can include:

* Prophetic dreams
* Deja vu
* Remembering a past life
* Out-of-body experience
* Flying in a dream
* Knowing the truth instantly
* Guiding intuitions

We meet to share and discuss spiritual experiences and topics in an open, friendly and respectful environment. Talking with others can help us understand what our experiences mean. We also discuss spiritual techniques and resources for gaining greater experience and insights.

Through regular use of Spiritual Exercises everyone can:

* Expand their awareness and enjoyment of life.

* Gain a personal understanding of the role of Karma and Reincarnation.

* Become active and Creative Dreamers.

* Experience Soul Travel, a form of expanded awareness and inner knowingness; which can also be an out-of-body experience.

* Awaken in consciousness and open their hearts to a deeper connection to God's love.

WHAT IS HU? “If you want to lift yourself to a higher state of consciousness—so that the political issues, the family issues, the social issues of the day do not throw you out of balance, so that you can find a happier, more contented life while you’re living here — sing HU, the most beautiful prayer.” —Harold Klemp, HU, the Most Beautiful Prayer, page 58 https://youtu.be/izduVMhuxUQ Here are ways to begin: With eyes open or closed, take a few deep breaths to relax. Then begin to sing HU (pronounced hue) in a long, drawn-out sound: HU-U-U-U. Take another breath, and sing HU again. Continue for up to twenty minutes. Sing HU with a feeling of love, and it will gradually open your heart to God.

"Transforming Your Life with the Sacred Word HU"

Eckankar Center of Monterey

Welcome! You are warmly invited to attend our ECK Light and Sound Service, where we have the opportunity to sing HU, a love song to God. Where and When are the ECK Light and Sound Services? The ECK Light and Sound Services are held on the second Sundays of every month from 11:00 a.m. - 12:15 p.m. at the ECKANKAR Center of Monterey, 77 Soledad Drive, Monterey, CA 93940. What Can I Expect to Find at an ECK Light and Sound Service? Each service is based on the teachings of Eckankar: The Path of Spiritual Freedom, and focuses the experience of the Light and Sound (http://www.eckankar.org/light.html), the two primary ways in which we experience God's love. The word "ECK" means the Holy Spirit. The topic of service changes every month. This month's topic is listed above. The primary focus is singing HU, a Love Song to God. (http://www.eckankar.org/hu.html). The service can also feature a reading from the Eckankar books, a talk by a featured guest or panel, a featured video, music, and might include an open group discussion of spiritual principles at work in daily life. It lasts about an hour followed by refreshments and fellowship. The ECK Light and Sound Service is a friendly environment respectful and supportive of families and people of all faiths, religions and philosophical beliefs. Who Will Attend? People who attend the ECK Light and Sound Services care about spirituality and divine love. Many of them have had spiritual experiences. A member of the Eckankar clergy leads the service. There may or may not be time for open discussion during the service. After the service, you are welcome to share your experiences during the fellowship time or choose to just listen to others who share. Families are welcome and everyone is invited to bring a friend or loved one. All religious faiths and philosophies are honored and respected. We offer quiet activities for children who would like them. Where Can I Find Out More?
