A.R.E. Programs Show You How

Virginia Beach, Va. – Edgar Cayce’s Association for Research and Enlightenment (A.R.E.) wants to help you start the New Year right as their Virginia Beach headquarters presents programs all month long to help you better understand and prepare for the future.

Jan. 20, popular speaker and author John Van Auken presents an in-depth look at the global, physical, and spiritual predictions for our times—and why change must occur—during Edgar Cayce and Prophecy - Understanding the Times We Live In. This fascinating program explores the coming metaphysical changes to our planet and our bodies, world-wide political and religious changes that  will yield a new worldview of life’s purpose, and the spiritual “earth changes” each of us must experience as we enter this new age.

Spoiler Alert: Despite the magnitude of some of the changes, Van Auken presents a very positive outlook.

Then, Jan. 21, Master Astrologer Kathy Rose teaches how the guidance and influence of the planets relate to you personally during Practical Astrology: Planetary Energies and Your Soul's Path for 2018.

This program includes a free natal chart—which attendees will use to learn to track positive and negative cycles through 2018. Everyone at every level of astrological knowledge and experience is invited to attend. The full-day, interactive workshop offers practical knowledge about the specific type of planetary energies and frequencies in play for 2018 and beyond—and how they can best be used to create a long-term action plan for maximum individual soul growth.

Attend both the Jan. 20 and 21 events and save $20! Register for both programs and receive $10 off each. A limited number of partial scholarships are available; contact A.R.E. Customer Service (800-333-4499) for details.

Jan. 25, psychic medium Nancy Laporta helps you connect with loved ones on the other side at the first 2018 Spirit Message Circle. Cost is $30 per person—and attendance is limited to about 20 guests. To register early, please call 757-457-7231, or stop by the bookstore.

Jan. 28, our second Wisdom Workshop of the year features Sacred Sound Journey from 1-3 p.m. Daniel Scruggs leads an interactive, informative, and immersive sound journey exploring over a dozen organic and rare indigenous instruments from around the world! Cost is $25. To register for this Wisdom Workshop call 757-457-7231, or stop by the bookstore.

And online beginning in January, A.R.E. members can benefit from the organization’s 2018 Enlightenment Series: Monthly Practices for the Soul. Throughout 2018, new content will be offered each month, focusing on a theme from 12 Lessons in Personal Spirituality by Kevin J. Todeschi. Each practice has a focus lesson, including videos, blogs, and study material. Learn more at

Edgar Cayce (1877-1945) founded the non-profit Association for Research and Enlightenment (A.R.E.) in 1931, to explore spirituality, holistic health, intuition, dream interpretation, psychic development, reincarnation, and ancient mysteries—all subjects that frequently came up in the more than 14,000 documented psychic readings given by Cayce, who died in 1945. The mission of A.R.E. is to create opportunities for profound personal change in body, mind, and spirit through the wisdom found in the Edgar Cayce material. The Virginia Beach headquarters is a popular site for locals and tourists with free daily lectures, a Health Center & Spa, the Cayce/Reilly® School of Massage, an extensive metaphysical library, a meditation garden, a stone labyrinth, and a bookstore and gift shop. The campus is also home to Atlantic University which offers two masters degrees (Transpersonal Psychology and Leadership Studies) through an online platform, as well as continuing education and certificate programs. Through A.R.E.’s many programs, services, publications, and membership outreach, individuals from all walks of life and religious backgrounds are provided with tools for personal transformation and healing at all levels—body, mind, and spirit.
