Edgar Cayce was an American Christian mystic who answered questions on subjects as varied as healing, reincarnation, wars, Atlantis, and future events while claiming to be in a trance. A biographer gave him the nickname, “The Sleeping Prophet”. A nonprofit organization, the Association for Research and Enlightenment, was founded to facilitate the study of Cayce’s work.
Each year, the A.R.E. Headquarters in Virginia Beach attracts more than 100,000 individuals from around the world. For countless reasons, these individuals come to investigate the information that Edgar Cayce brought forth in his psychic “readings” and discover for themselves how that material may be used today in the fields of health, personal spirituality, intuition, education, and research, and to promote spiritual development at both individual and global levels.
The A.R.E. Library houses not only the transcripts of the more than 14,000 Cayce readings that were preserved during his lifetime, but also one of the largest, most respected metaphysical libraries in the world. Whether you’re a serious scholar doing research or just stopping in to visit, the library’s extensive collection of often-hard-to-find books on holistic health, psychic experience, psychology, and comparative religions should be at the top of your must-see list.
