Edgar Cayce on the Spiritual Forces Within You:
Explore Your Secret Body & Mind

The Summer Asilomar Retreat tradition continues in a stunningly
beautiful new location, with a transformative new program!

Lotus Granlibakken 14Enliven, enlighten, and sustain the highest levels of your being—spirit, mind, and body—as you raise your vibration, energize the body temple, and expand your consciousness with Cayce expert John Van Auken. During this deeply transformative and experiential retreat, you will rejuvenate body, mind, and spirit as John brings the physical, mental, and spiritual concepts and practices given by Edgar Cayce to this annual tradition. He brings rarely seen illustrations, direct quotes from the Cayce files, techniques for breakthroughs to deeper meditation and awakened intuition, soul growth, and God-consciousness as well as vibrant health and vitality. John shares the latest insights into how we may enhance and maintain the Life Force within us for a more abundant, joyful life.

Through lecture, experiential exercises, and guided meditations, John will cover these key points and more:

  • How the life force flows through us and how to improve its flow (called chi in Asian health concepts)
  • Finding your ideal purpose in life, which in turn fires up your life force
  • The role of Spirit in the physical life

This special program, combined with the beauty of a resort setting and the fellowship of like-minded seekers, will make this a “spiritual getaway” to remember!

. . . all strength, all healing of every nature is the changing of the vibrations from within, the attuning of the divine within the living tissue of a body to Creative Energies.
This alone is healing.
” Edgar Cayce reading 1967-1
