Reflections Guest

Dr. Harmon Hartzel Bro

From the Archives: Dr. Harmon Hartzel Bro, PhD (1919-1997), a Professor of philosophy and religion and specialist in parapsychological aspects of religious life, including meditation, faith-healing, mystical experience, and conversion, he was born December 14, 1919, in Nanking, China to missionary parents. He was ordained a minister in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in 1943 before serving as associate professor of religion and psychology at George Williams College in Chicago, Illinois. He was a director at the Institute for Religious Education at Syracuse University and director of the Institute for Research in Psychology and Religion. Bro's friendship with Edgar Cayce led to his long relationship with the Association for Research and Enlightenment (A.R.E.). His doctoral thesis, The Charisma of the Seer, examined the life and work of Cayce. He was a frequent speaker at the A.R.E. and wrote a number of books before his death in 1997 including the re-released book A Seer Out of Season.

 

This talk was originally given in 1950 at A.R.E. Headquarters in Virginia Beach. The topic is the Seer and His Gift.
