ECKANKAR - EXPERIENCE THE LIGHT AND SOUND OF GOD
Eckankar teaches that there is an audible life current known as the ECK, or Holy Spirit, that connects each of us with the heart of God. We can experience the ECK as Light and Sound. Through study and practice of the Spiritual Exercises of ECK, we learn to recognize the Light and Sound of God as It touches our lives and brings increased divine love.
Love is the keystone of ECK: God is love, ECK is love, the Holy Spirit is love, and you are love. This is what you are trying to achieve in your realizations. As you rise to the higher states of consciousness, you become not a greater servant of God, but a greater channel of love to all life for the Divinity which is, in whatever way you see or know IT.
The teachings of Eckankar are the teachings of love. And with love comes compassion, understanding, wisdom, and freedom.
Harold Klemp, The Eternal Dreamer, p.251

ADVANCED SPIRITUAL STUDY PROGRAM
In Eckankar you can explore the many facets of divine truth through dreams, Soul Travel, and your own contemplative exercises. You'll also develop a deeper and more profound appreciation for the many cycles of life that directly affect you. As a member of ECK, you may enjoy the spiritual fellowship of others who, like you, desire peace, wisdom, spiritual freedom, and God's grace and love.
If you want to go deeper in your spiritual studies, you may wish to visit a class to be held on Sunday, July 12, 10:30 am - 12:00 noon at 1056 12th Ave., Room 201 in Honolulu. This class comes with yearly membership in Eckankar but you don’t have to be a member to visit the class one time to see if it is right for you. Please leave a message at 808-735-7719, and someone will be happy to call you back.
The ECK discourses are written with a secret, internal rhythm that gradually unfolds your consciousness in a very precise and orderly manner. When you become a member of Eckankar, you receive a discourse series for your personal study. You study one lesson a month, sharing them with your family if you like.
The Easy Way Discourses are a portal for you to enter the secret worlds that exist beyond our cosmos, the higher regions so well known to the ECK travelers and the saints of old.
—Sri Harold Klemp
