OUR 85th ANNUAL A.R.E. MEMBERS CONGRESS
The Living Legacy of Edgar Cayce
Explore Edgar Cayce the man—his hometown connections, family,
friends, and the origins of A.R.E., the present-day influence of his
readings on our changing times, and the legacy and future of this
work as we celebrate the 85th anniversary of his Association!
In 1931 Edgar Cayce gave the first reading
on an annual Members Congress. “Each year,” it stated, "one period
. . . as a meeting of all members, representatives, wherever they may be
located, at Virginia Beach, with the reports made
by representatives . . . from the various portions
of the country, as well as speakers that would
renew the faith, confidence, purposes, aims of the
work itself." (254-57)
Now, 85 years later, the original purposes of Congress
remain! Come experience this unique week of fellowship,
communication, education, inspiration, celebration,
and interaction between worldwide A.R.E.
members, staff, volunteers and Board of Trustees.
