“Divine Kinship: Animals as Carriers of Divine Love” — Free In-Person Workshop (Darien, IL)

September 16, 2023 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Free workshop at Indian Prairie Library in Darien, IL.

Enjoy stories and insights illustrating the divine kinship of love and joy that we have with animals—and with all life.

All are welcome; free 65-page booklet ECK Wisdom on Relationships to all attendees.

“If you have a pet, you are aware of the bond of love between yourself and your pet. This bond of love exists because you are Soul—a particle of God sent here to gain spiritual experience. Ultimately, to learn how to give and to receive divine love.       

“What most people don’t realize is their pet is also Soul. Animals are Soul too.”

—Harold Klemp, Spiritual Wisdom on Relationships, p. 31

Come explore

  • How each of us, pets or human, is Soul—an eternal spiritual being and particle of God—sent here to gain spiritual experience.
  • That we can observe the working of Divine Spirit and love in the habits of animals, plants, and all life—including our own.
  • People of all backgrounds, cultures, and faiths are warmly welcome.

Feel free to share your stories and insights or to just be present and  listen.

A free copy of the 65-page booklet, ECK Wisdom on Relationships, will be given to each attendee.

“Soul exists because God loves It. It’s very simple. And when two Souls set up a bond of love, it is stronger and more enduring than eternity. It doesn’t matter if the two Souls are human beings or if one of them happens to be a bird, a dog, a cat, or another animal form.”

—Harold Klemp, ECK Wisdom on Relationships, p. 31


Free raffle!  A free raffle ticket for a copy of the book Animals Are Souls Too! (by Harold Klemp, spiritual leader of ECKANKAR) will be available to all attendees.
