Local ECK centers and study groups sponsor a variety of classes and
Eckankar introductory talks provide a chance for seekers to explore
their own spiritual interests and learn more about the ECK teachings.
A recent Gallup poll states 33% of the public believe they have had
a spiritual experience at some point in their lives. If this includes
you, come explore the meaning behind your experience.
Studying the ECK works in a supportive group setting provides opportunity
for lively discussion as well as the room for each participant to
find their own answers. For those new to ECK, book discussion groups
serve as a great introduction to the benefits of attending ECK Satsang
classes for members.
ECK Worship Service
The public is invited to attend the ECK Worship Service. Each service focuses on an aspect of Eckankar and features a reading from the ECK works, singing HU, talks, music, and a group discussion of spiritual principles at work in daily life. The service lasts about an hour.
Kid-Friendly Services: During the Worship Service, an adult-monitored play room is provided for children. Parents with infants or toddlers are invited to sit in the play room to listen to the service.
ECK Workshops offer an opportunity to thoroughly explore spiritual
topics and provide valuable seeds for self-exploration. Led by trained
facilitators, workshops combine formal presentation, group discussion,
hands-on activities, and question-and-answer periods.
ECK seminars are open to the public and offer spiritual students of
all backgrounds a rich program featuring workshops, roundtable discussions,
inspirational talks, creative arts, programs for youth and families,
and much more.
Local seminars are an enjoyable way to learn more
about Eckankar. Programs may include talks, stories, panel discussions,
workshops, and creative arts performances. These afternoon or evening
seminars often include light refreshments or a community potluck.
Regional seminars range in length from one to three
days and are held throughout the United States and internationally.
Major ECK seminars feature a talk by Sri Harold Klemp,
the spiritual leader of Eckankar, in person or by live remote telecast.
These seminars attract thousands of spiritual seekers and members
An ECK Satsang class offers group study of discourses (lessons) written
by the Mahanta, the Living ECK Master. Satsang classes help awaken
Soul to greater truth and divine love. They can bring deeper awareness
of the Mahanta and your inner world and help you in meeting the challenges
of daily life. In the words of Sri Harold Klemp, "The ECK Satsang
classes are the mainstay of the outer works of ECK."
Receiving ECK discourses—required study materials for Satsang
classes—is one of the benefits of ECK
