Edgar Cayce's A.R.E.


Mentor: Loyd Auerbach, Parapsychologist, Atlantic University Faculty
May 21 – June 24, 2014
Price: $119

T he first step to psychic development is to notice we already are psychic. Once you've done that, there are a number of next steps one can take to identify one's psychic aptitudes, and enhance what we might be good at.

The research findings from the field of Parapsychology have demonstrated that psi abilities-- ESP and PK (psychokinesis / mind over matter) – are functions of normal human beings, much like creativity. Some people are more creative than others in different disciplines, but everyone seems to have some creativity in them, provided they can find it and have some belief it can be developed and utilized.

Developing one's psychic abilities is much the same. Some people have a natural aptitude for certain psychic talents that spontaneously manifest themselves, others need to find which applications of psi they have aptitude for and work on bringing them out.

In this eGroup, you will learn about factors which can bring out or inhibit your psi, as well as ways to find what psychic ability or application you might be better at.


  • The wide variety of psi abilities people display
  • How Belief – whether the result of Culture, Religion or Education – is the main support for and psi, how it shapes its incidence and appearance, and how it can block psi completely
  • The difference between Intuition and Psi
  • How parapsychologists have tried to mimic real-life ESP and PK in the laboratory to better understand how and why some people are more psychic than others
  • How you can test your ESP and PK, and use those tests to identify which abilities you have more of an aptitude for and to develop those abilities further


Week 1:

You will learn about various forms of ESP and PK from the parapsychologist's view, based on over 100 years of research and investigation of people's experiences and abilities, and how it differs from Intuition. You will learn how you can review your own past psychic experiences to start identifying what you have an immediate aptitude for. You will also learn how to look for patterns in those experiences in order to speed up the development process. You will learn how to practice and develop one of the easiest to access ESP abilities: psychometry ("reading" an object).

Week 2:

You will learn about the place of Belief in accessing ESP and PK. You will learn about the public and government Remote Viewing experiments conducted since the 1970s, and how the findings of those programs provide much in understanding how ESP might work. You will learn how to do a basic Remote Viewing, and participate in a Precognitive Remote Viewing exercise.

Week 3:

You will learn about all sorts of other things that might affect your psychic experiences and psi development, from personality variables, to the physical and geophysical) environment to health, nutrition and even state of mind (at the time one is trying to be psychic). You'll learn a different kind of game of Telepathy you can play with your friends and family, one which with practice can significantly improve your experience with the psychic.

Week 4:

You'll learn about the potential for Mind Over Matter (PsychoKinesis, or PK) we all have, and how the ability manifests in a variety of conscious and unconscious ways – from moving objects to psychic healing to poltergeist outbreaks. You'll learn an easy technique to practice and do PK on your own and with your friends and family.

What's an e-Group?

Your A.R.E. eGroup will meet in an interactive and dynamic online classroom called PBWorks. This new online classroom encourages student-centered learning while providing limitless access to lesson material, student comments, helpful links, audios, and videos. Learning in an online environment connects students from all over the world bringing the philosophy of Edgar Cayce right into your home.

In the virtual meeting room, you will have access to the written and audio materials prepared for you by Loyd. Every Wednesday, he will post a lesson along with exercises for you to practice during the week. Posting is very similar to sending an e-mail, except that all the e-mails are viewed within your virtual meeting room. You may post your thoughts, questions, and experiences on the site for Loyd and the other participants to read and respond to. In this way, everyone will benefit from one another's experiences and insights and the coaching offered by Loyd to individuals.

Once you register for your A.R.E. eGroup, we will send you an e-mail from eGroups@edgarcayce.org detailing how to access and navigate our discussion board for the eGroup Being More Psychic: An Exploration in Psychometry, Remote Viewing, PK, and Telepathy. Then, you're in! You will be able to visit your eGroup any time you desire. The meeting room is accessible 24 hours a day/ 7 days a week and you may participate at your convenience from anywhere in the world. There are no specified times that you have to be in the room. You decide when and how often you wish to participate.
