There’s an amazing spiritual flow at an Eckankar seminar as the Light and Sound and Divine Love of God begin working for you, in you, through you in service to you and to others. There’s an almost indescribable and positive “something more” to everything that happens at the seminar. The people of Eckankar, the members, seem like everyday people from all walks of life, but there’s something more to them, too. That “something more” may be what you want. Will you go to the Eckankar seminar to get it? Or will you deprive yourself of a possible life-changing, life-enhancing, life-enriching interaction with the spirit of God that can continue to grow in you as long as you want? The Oregon Eckankar Regional Seminar, April 15-17, at the University Place Hotel in Portland, Oregon, is free to sample for those who are not yet members of Eckankar. Read on to hear about the kinds of experiences people have at Eckankar seminars. You can learn more about this seminar at http://eckankar-oregon.org/ or call 800-336-9756. Each person experiences this flow of Divine Spirit in his or her own way. Some feel a sense of coming/being home, a sense of great comfort and calm. The original music and stories shared at the seminar bring the warm glow of inspiration to others. For some, a problem or challenging situation suddenly has a workable solution. Often, people discover a place to go where other people have come to the same or similar conclusions about the spiritual life as they have. Some people feel as though they have found the spiritual path for which they have been searching their whole lives and wish they could have found it much sooner. The muscles around the mouths and jaws of some may ache a little with added work as people discover that they are smiling more and wider than on any previous occasion. Some may meet those who seem like long-lost friends that they haven’t seen this lifetime until that moment—a reuniting takes place between Souls who have shared precious moments in other lifetimes. Some may hear sounds or music that are unheard by others—God’s sound and a special communication to those Souls. Some may experience light or lights in new ways—more of God’s communication with Soul. Others may experience profound divine love. Miracles or unusually enjoyable “coincidences” may occur for others. At Eckankar seminars, it’s much more than people speaking or performing or leading workshops and roundtables. A divine spiritual presence flows through everything that happens to highlight and enhance a benefit offered to those who will receive it. This is a small sampling of the kinds of experiences people have had at Eckankar seminars. What will you experience? Come to this seminar and see for yourself. The only way to discover the amazing differences between Eckankar and other spiritual paths is to allow yourself to experience, not just read about but experience the wonders of the spiritual life that members of Eckankar in more than 140 countries are exploring daily. Try some ECK Spiritual Exercises for a couple of months to build your spiritual muscles and abilities to have new spiritual experiences. Give yourself a chance to experience how Eckankar’s spiritual guide, the Mahanta, the Living ECK Master, can assist you on your personal spiritual path to God as well as in your daily life. The spiritual freedom and lack of pressure that is so much a part of Eckankar’s culture recognizes the freedom you have to make your own decisions, especially the freedom to stay with Eckankar and its teachings or to go to another teaching that has value to you. The Oregon Eckankar Regional Seminar will feature guest speaker and performer Rodney Jones, a professional jazz musician and master teacher at The Juilliard School. He tells great stories about his spiritual experiences and can tell you how to improve your own. There will also be other members of Eckankar speaking about their experiences, conducting workshops and roundtables, performing their original spiritual music, showing their spiritual art, and being there to hear all about your spiritual experiences and wishes. All of this is geared towards helping you on your personal path to God.
