Collage of ECK events throughout New Jersey

Regional Affiliate

Eckankar in New Jersey is also known as the Satsang Society of New Jersey, a chartered affiliate of Eckankar, The Path of Spiritual Freedom. Our purpose is to share information about Eckankar in the New Jersey region.

In New Jersey we provide spiritual services and programs, such as Sound of Soul events, workshops, book discussions, and ECK Sound and Light Services. These and other types of activities are featured at all locations throughout the state. In addition, spiritual support and materials are offered for youth and family. Annually, we also present an all-day statewide seminar to celebrate and explore the teachings of Eckankar, and to share practical examples of the ECK, or Holy Spirit, at work in our everyday lives. Members of Eckankar who live in New Jersey are also considered members of the Satsang Society of New Jersey. Advanced spiritual study classes are available for members. Anyone interested may view membership details to learn more.


Eckankar is a spiritual teaching that can help you discover for yourself your purpose in this world. God is described as a formless, infinite being of love that manifests as Light and Sound. Each of us (Soul) is a spark of God, and each step on our spiritual path teaches us to accept God’s love at a greater level. The ECK teachings emphasize the use of practical tools and exercises to help you understand and enjoy your life.
