Enliven, 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. John Van Auken, a director at the Edgar Cayce Foundation and one of its most popular instructors, brings the physical, mental, and spiritual concepts and practices given by Edgar Cayce to this experiential five-day retreat, with rarely seen illustrations and direct quotes from the Cayce files. Study with one of the best teachers and practitioners of Cayce’s concepts as John brings you techniques for breakthroughs to deeper meditation and awakened intuition, soul growth and God-consciousness, and vibrant health and vitality. John also shares the latest insights into how we may enhance and maintain the Life Force within us for a more abundant, joyful life.

John will cover these key points and more:
  • How our body works best
  • How our thoughts and emotions affect our health and well-being
  • 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
  • How to move from karma to grace in your body and mind
  • The role of Spirit in the physical life
Cayce said, " …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. Whether it is accomplished by the use of drugs, the knife, or what-not, it is the attuning of the atomic structure of the living cellular force to its spiritual heritage."
(Edgar Cayce reading 1967-1).

A.R.E. Summer Seabeck allows people from all walks of life to gather in an open, nonjudgmental environment to explore spirituality, different world philosophies, and principles, contained in the Edgar Cayce readings.

The program schedule allows for flexibility to attend most sessions as well as free time to pursue the many other recreational activities Seabeck offers.


These small groups get together to discuss what the speakers have presented, giving everyone a chance to process the information presented at greater depth, sharing ideas and questions, and giving one another a deeper understanding of the topics. There will be opportunities for laughter and friendship as you share your understanding of and insights into the program in a supportive, loving environment. Signup sheets will be at the registration table.


Please bring your appropriate donations for the silent auction. Proceeds from the silent auction will support the youth program. Drop off your donations after 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday at the schoolhouse. There will be a raffle to help raise money to support the youth program. If you would like to donate a special item (examples: services, readings, quilts), please contact Judith and William Munns at juwilmunns@shaw.ca.

Come prepared with a costume or make one up when you arrive. If you would rather not dress-up, that is fine too. Starts at 6:00 p.m.


Dance Seabeck 2014Every year our own Seabeck group of attendees share their amazing gifts by volunteering to do free workshops. Ideas for workshops include dreams, dowsing, reiki, hypnotherapy, nutrition, yoga on the beach, and more.

You will be allowed to have business cards and brochures available during your workshop for your attendees. Inside space is limited.
