A FEW SPACES ARE STILL AVAILABLE FOR Edgar Cayce’s A.R.E. and the Tarsia Center’s new 4-Month spiritual mentorship program. Mentored by longtime members and coaches, Eileen Malo and Lynn Sparrow Christy, this program will feature:

  • A four-day “Virginia Beach retreat,” that will launch you on the module’s practice as you meet face-to-face with the program mentors and other participants.
  • Personalized, mentored growth that helps you apply the practice to both your personal history and what is actually going on in your life right now.
  • A “Certificate of Completion” for successfully working with the module.

The program, “Keys to Emergent Awakening” will take place September 27, 2017 – January 6, 2018 (with time off for the Holidays). Visit for additional information, or call 1-800-333-4499.

A.R.E’s headquarters will host a gathering on the labyrinth for the partial (about 85%) eclipse that will be viewable from Virginia Beach on August 21. Learn more.

During the last month we mailed books to 885 prisoners in 42 states, AND we sent books to a man in a Moroccan prison! The Program is attracting a raft of new volunteers who are invaluable in keeping pace with requests from prisoners, ministers, family members and friends.

Bill Austin, our current Board of Trustees Chair, and his fellow trustees have written their individual journeys with the A.R.E. and Cayce Readings. I think you’ll enjoy their stories. In talking about their journeys, they are reminded about why they support the organization and ask you to join them by making a donation to your spiritual home. Enjoy getting to know our Board members:

The last of summer is slowly slipping out of the A.R.E. Camp Valley as A.R.E. Camp is hosting the final session of the 2017 summer – the Adult Retreat! It has been a truly incredible summer, as we celebrated the opening of our NEW Camp Dining Hall and Kitchen. Friends came from across the country to take part in this monumental summer! We had an amazing time putting our new building to great use, cooking up delicious home cooked meals centered around the Cayce Diet! We’re already hard at work planning the 2018 summer – details will be available soon!

For questions about Camp and what it’s like to live a Cayce-Centric lifestyle in a beautiful Blue Ridge Mountain valley, contact Malenka Kaydan at (757) 457-7162. 

As a special ”Thank You” — and as another perk of your A.R.E. Membership — you’ll be receiving an exclusive series of Membership Minute videos throughout the year! We hope they will bring to life some of the concepts from the Cayce readings for you. We look forward to hearing your feedback.

And now, valued A.R.E. member, please enjoy John Van Auken as he presents his take on a concept that Edgar Cayce tells us is THE most important lesson in life, setting our spiritual Ideal. Sign in to the member-only section of our website to watch today!

Thank you for your ongoing support of this great Work!
