Walked labyrinth

The A.R.E offers many free activities it's good to look at their calendar of events. On this visit my friends and I walk the Labyrinth under the supermoon another free activity.

The facility offers a historical film to introduce Edgar Cayce. There are tours and a gift shop. A bit boring if you are not into holistic medicine.

It's been many, many years that I've been wanting to make the trip to the A.R.E. and finally there was a seminar which I had to attend. Everyone there is warm, loving and compassionate, this is got to be one of the best places in the world to hang out at. The seminar on healing was outstanding, in addition to... More

There is something about this place that still attracts me after all these years. If you don't believe in prophets then don't bother. If you can feel a presense or can experience a cold chill then go upstairs to Edgars Reading Library and pick a subject to investigate. Open up your mind and learn what it is all about. You... More

My family visited the Edgar Cayce A.R.E Association for Research and Enlightenment during our Virginia Beach vacation. What an experience! There was so much knowledge on the grounds--unbelievable! I have always wanted to do a past life reading and made an appointment for the following day. I'm glad I did. DO IT. It's really nothing short of amazing. Edgar Cayce... More

Enjoyed a relaxing massage with my man, who had his first massage ever. The therapists were kind, knowledgeable and professional. Don't waste your time on 60 minutes - always go for at least 90 minutes! The Café on the first floor offered healthy, tasty choices. The meditation room overlooks the ocean and is always an agenda item during our visits... More

This was one of the best things we did. It was windy and cloudy, and we decided to visit here to kill some time. Very fascinating facility, interesting founder, helpful staff. It wasn't weird or kooky.

I have read a lot of Cayce books and have known about his place. Finally got to see it. We took the tour and listened to a very informative lady give a good talk about him. Very good.

The museum has EdgarCasey's original readings and work available for review. They have a big library and book stores. We didn't go into the spa but the services look good. This is an interesting place to go if you are into metaphysics.
