"The farther you go, the fewer maps are available to chart the path. There are fewer travelers. There are fewer players to tell you what to look for, what to watch out for. It is up to you to keep your eyes wide open and stay alert to the guidance of the ECK."

—Harold Klemp, ECK Wisdom on Inner Guidance, p. 34

Guest Speaker: Bob Hays

Bob has been a student of Eckankar for nearly 50 years, having begun his studies under Eckankar's founder, Paul Twitchell, in 1970. A native Texan who has spent more than 26 years in Mexico, he was a founding member of Eckankar groups in both areas, and speaks internationally at Eckankar events throughout North and South America. Bob worked as a university instructor for more than two decades, including three years as a visiting professor of Indian Languages, Literature, and Philosophy at Mexico's most prestigious graduate school. In the 1980s, he worked in museum administration in Dallas, including as the Executive Director of the Dallas County Historical Foundation, which runs The Sixth Floor Museum on the assassination of John F. Kennedy. He began training as a therapist in 2001, and now practices a synthesis of applied kinesiology and Chinese medicine at the clinic for natural therapies that he runs together with his wife, Emma, from their ranch in San Rafael, Veracruz. He devotes his time to health research and to writing.
