On an almost daily basis, Edgar Cayce entered a self-induced altered state of consciousness that allowed him to answer questions of almost any nature ranging from a person’s medical condition to the origin and nature of the cosmos. His psychic dissertations became known as “readings” and were assigned numbers to protect the privacy of those who sought his guidance.
In 1931, a group of people approached Edgar Cayce with the hopes of becoming psychic like him. Cayce's reply was that anyone could do what he did. He agreed to help them with one condition: They would have to "live" precepts for spiritual growth. It took the group eleven years to apply and compile the twenty-four lessons that came from the Cayce readings and later became A Search for God, Books I and II. This material has helped individuals and groups around the world to discover a closer attunement to God.
What are the benefits of studying this material:
- Tap into your relationship with God
- Explore your intuition
- Find your inner joy and inner peace
- Practice listening "soul to soul"
- Learn to love and appreciate your life
- Find out how to work with Spirit
- Spend time with like-minded people
Although Edgar Cayce was born and raised in the Bible Belt of America, taught Sunday School regularly, and read the Bible completely through once for each year of his life, the Cayce readings include a broader perspective that is inclusive of other spiritual traditions, encouraging individuals to participate in a religion of their choice.
In fact, "A Search for God" does not require any involvement in organized religion. It involves walking on a spiritual path in daily life, wherever that may lead.
The Cayce approach to spiritual awakening and A Search for God is not theoretical—it is an applied approach. The process involves both inner work and outer application. The inner work is primarily prayer and meditation. The outer application involves service to others in the midst of daily life.

How Do I Participate In an Online Mentored Course?
The day before your course starts, you will receive an e-mail from firstname.lastname@example.org detailing how to access and navigate your online classroom. You will also receive an invitation to join the workspace in PBWorks.
Once you're in the classroom, you will be able to visit your online classroom any time, day or night, 24/7, for the entire length of the course. 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.
In the virtual classroom, you will have access to written and audio or video materials prepared for you by your mentor. Every Wednesday, your mentor 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 messages are viewed within your virtual classroom. You may post your thoughts, questions, and experiences on the "wall" of your classroom for your mentor and fellow participants to read and respond to. In this way, everyone will benefit from one another's experiences and insights and the coaching offered by your mentor to individuals.
