The Four ECK Celebrations of Life

The Four ECK Celebrations of Life are special spiritual services offered by Eckankar that are officiated by members of the ECK clergy. They include the:

  1. ECK Consecration Ceremony
  2. ECK Rite of Passage
  3. ECK Wedding Ceremony
  4. ECK Memorial Service.

These four celebrations of life are at the heart of the activities of mankind. Under one form or another, this has been the basis for what people do. As they go through life, they naturally enter these stages, and there is some kind of rite or celebration to help them. Each stage is a rite of passage, a way of coming into being.

ECK Spiritual Aide Session

An ECK Spiritual Aide (ESA) is a member of the ECK Clergy who has been specially trained to conduct ESA sessions.

An ESA does not offer advice but simply listens as a vehicle for the Holy Spirit.
