I was very impressed with the the central Eckankar Los Angeles Center and Eckankar Meet Up group of Los Angeles. The emphasis of Eckankar was: • Simple spiritual exercises and creative meditation techniques that connect you with the Light and Sound of God • Tools to help you have personal experiences with past lives and help you learn to Soul Travel • How to remember and interpret your dreams using your own personal dream vocabulary • How to get guidance from within yourself about every aspect of your life Offering classes, workshops, discussion groups, and weekly worship services on a variety of spiritual topics, it was suggested I check back because the topics change often. I felt more awakened to the joy, wisdom, and inner peace within. I tried this technique: The word HU (pronounced hue) is an ancient sound with immense spiritual power. Chanting it aloud or inwardly can help you find peace, expand your awareness, and gain a higher perspective on daily problems. With your eyes open or closed, take a few deep breaths, gently focus at the point between your eyebrows, and sing HU in a long drawn-out sound. Continue for up to twenty minutes and feel the inner changes for yourself. Discussions are currently held at the Los Angeles Eckankar Center and the Beverly Hills Public Library. I look forward to them.
I am writing this review as an actual member of this church. Prior to becoming a member here, I was in fairly good teaching churches, which is very important to me. This is a bi-lingual church. Spanish and English. I speak and understand English and know some Spanish, but I have no problem understanding the sermons and bible studies. Pastor Eddie Ildefonso is fluent in both languages. This church is truly a missionary church that understands and lives out the "Great Commission" which is detailed in Matthew 28:19-20. This church has planted and is actively training leaders in Romania, Africa, Honduras, Guatemala, Pakistan, India and soon in Chile and Brasil. Over 500 churches worldwide. Pastor travels to these countries regularly each year and when not traveling, he conducts Skype training. There are also missionary teams that travel as well. Pastor Eddie is also the overseas dean of Covington Theological Seminary and partners with affiliated churches in overseas missionary efforts. Here at home, the congregation is also involved in local missionary efforts. All in all this is a great church to receive in depth teaching in the bible and learn to apply biblical principals in your life. I would recommend this church families and individuals looking for a church home in the Westchester area of Los Angeles.
I know this is a great Organization, Last Sunday night we were at church and this Lady came in screaming help, and by the time some one could get to her she was on the ground. The Elder that was preaching said bring her to the alter but that was too late. she was out. the message was "your face against the wall" that was exactly what happen to her. The Lady said some one is trying to kill her. They Prayed for her, pick her up and started asking her questions. She did not know where she was. how she got to the church. The Elder Prayed some more and they gave her some water and V8 to drink. And talk some more. It was now about 9:30 pm and They were getting ready to go. They asked her for a number to call some one to take her home. She could not remember any numbers, But through continuously praying she came through and was able to give her Mother's number to the Elder. They contacted her mother and she send her cousin to pick her up. She was a Sweet Lady she Kissed everyone and thank them to for saving her life. The Elder said dont thank them, but all the praises must go to Jesus, for he alone is Worthy. Another Life was delivered from the hands of the enemy. To God Be The Glory. A Eye Witness for Jesus,
