Welcome to the March edition, Volume 2, of our fledgling online newsletter. It has been a joy working with a team of volunteers to create and publish this document. And, we have bigger plans for the future. Stay tuned.


We’ve gotten off to a great start in 2022. On February 13th, we offered the first ECK Light and Sound Service in an ECK Center since the pandemic started. It was a wonderful event, an opportunity to celebrate God’s love for Soul in the company of fellow travelers on the road to God.

Jo Ellen Carson, NCSS President, served as officiator for our February in-person Light and Sound Service.

This ECK Light and Sound Service will be rebroadcast via Zoom on March 13th. Details and registration information are below.


We have new and ongoing events that are offered in-person and online. Some events are for ECK members and others are open to all. We hope that the event listings below are organized in a way that makes it easy for you to find what you’re looking for. If you are not a member of Eckankar but would like more information on becoming a member, this link provides the information you need.


We have new Satsangs and book discussions starting this month. And, we have a wide variety of ongoing ECK Sound of Soul Events, Satsang Intensives, ECK Light and Sound Services, Mystic World Discussions, Golden Leaf Discussions, and ECK Soul Adventure discussions. All of this and more are described below, so keep reading.


Thanks to many volunteers, there are a multitude of ways for you to experience the ECK teachings in North Carolina. I hope you will take advantage of these opportunities. While the road to God is an individual path, I have found a lot of joy and comfort in being able to share experiences with like-minded people. I look forward to seeing you at an online or in-person event.

In ECK,
