There is more to life than what you see on the surface. You may already sense this, perhaps through experiences in lucid dreaming, out-of-body travel, seemingly impossible coincidences, or just a strong, unshakable feeling. You are not alone. Many people have similar experiences and want answers to their burning questions.
The ECK teachings can help you find answers, giving you tools to prove spiritual truths to yourself and discover the adventure in your daily life.
