Celebrations of Life

“The ECK celebrations of life are at the heart of the activities of mankind. As people 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.”

—Sri Harold Klemp, A Cosmic Sea of Words: The ECKANKAR Lexicon

THE ECK CONSECRATION CEREMONY

A celebration of new life and the beginning of a new phase in Soul’s journey home to God.

It also celebrates your commitment as a parent to bring a spiritual awareness into the home and life of your child. The ceremony is performed by an ECK cleric and is for infants and very young children, though it can be held for children up to age twelve. You can contact your RESA or an ECK cleric to arrange an ECK Consecration Ceremony for your child.
