The topic is the Seer and His Gift.
Dr. Harmon Bro, 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 recently re-released book A Seer Out of Season.
