Vahana Outreach

State & Local Directors

The Washington Satsang Society (WSS) is supported by a network of volunteers who are here to serve you at both the local and state levels. These ECK leaders help run the ECKANKAR organization in Washington, and serve in many different capacities, from local directors and coordinators, to statewide directors, to the WSS Board of Trustees, WSS Officers, President, and RESA.

We are grateful for their dedication and love as we continue to bring the message of ECK to the people of Washington, as well as give support to the growing number of chelas in this area!

ECK Clergy Services

ECK clergy are available to officiate a variety of spiritual services and ECK celebrations.

About Clergy Services

Members of the ECK Clergy have extensive training and are ordained by the Eckankar Spiritual Center in Chanhassen, Minnesota. The services offered here are available to ECK members as well as the public—individuals, their friends and family, and the community in which they live.

ECK Clergy

Clergy are available to lead ECK Light and Sound Services and officiate the four ECK celebrations of life.

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

ECK Spiritual Aide

An ESA conducts ECK Spiritual Aide sessions. An ESA session, though not counseling, can help an individual find his own answers to spiritual questions and life situations through the aid of Divine Spirit. An ESA does not offer advice but simply listens as a vehicle for the Holy Spirit.


Ongoing trainings for ECK volunteers help chelas stay in alignment with the current direction of ECKANKAR, and are an invaluable way to keep the message of ECK pure as we continue to grow. Please check with your local director for trainings that are currently available in your area.

H.I. Training

Trainings for ECK High Initiates include those for the Spiritual Duties of the ECK High Initiate, Wisdom from the Master on Spiritual Leadership, and others. These trainings are for initiates of the 5th circle and above to provide a strong bridge to the teachings of ECK for the people of Washington State.

Chela Training

Trainings for ECK chelas include those for Spiritual Duties of the ECK Volunteer, ECK Arahata Training, Chela HU Chants, the Sound of Soul Event, and Handbook for ECK Leaders. Additional trainings are offered to support Vahana activities and outreach, introductory presentations, public speaking and storytelling, and others.

A gift of true love is always God’s love to you that you give to another.

Initiate Resources & Guidelines

The ECKANKAR Spiritual Center (ESC) has put together a fantastic assortment of tools, tips, brochures, guidelines, and Vahana ideas to share the ECK teachings.

Five Points to Master Your Spiritual Destiny

  1. Point number one: Forget the past, and learn the spiritual lessons of today.
  2. Point number two: Look for a new way to solve a stubborn problem.
  3. Point number three: Whatever you undertake, do it to the best of your ability. If necessary, do it even better.
  4. Point number four: Being different can make you an outcast or a leader. Sometime you need to make a choice.
  5. Point number five: Tell others about the teachings of ECK.
