Edgar Cayce’s A.R.E. is a non-profit organization Founded in 1931 to support and advance the work and writings of Edgar Cayce. The Virginia Beach location is the international headquarters where thousands of visitors come year-round and hosts daily activities 7 days per week (see our activities calendar for details).
