New Crystals Donated to A.R.E. Meditation Room


Virginia Beach, Va. – It is not often you get something for nothing these days. Except at Edgar Cayce’s A.R.E.

Daily, you can freely enhance your mind, body, and spirit in the ocean-view Meditation Room on the third floor of the campus Visitor Center. The free experience was recently improved when long-time A.R.E. member James Tyberonn donated something for nothing.

Tyberonn, a professional engineer and geologist considered one of the world’s most knowledgeable experts on earth energies, crystals, and gems, this week donated a new monumental quartz crystal for the A.R.E. Meditation Room. The big quartz is a generator crystal, weighing about 700 pounds. Tyberonn says, “I hope this powerful, rare, and world class crystal will become an attraction for the A.R.E. Headquarters for years to come.”

The specially-selected crystal is not the first Tyberonn has donated to the A.R.E. Meditation Room, and his previous gifts still grace the space. The collection includes a Lapis Lazuli of over 110 pounds, Tyberonn explains because, “They are meant to provide an upshift in their combined amalgam of frequency.” A large “Violet Dolphin” amethyst projects energy and opens the crown chakra, promotes clarity, and also provides a protective field. A large clear quartz amplifies thought, increasing the amalgam of the gemstones in a unified vibrational field, contributing to clarity. Edgar Cayce’s readings state that ancient civilizations used quartz crystals to “communicate with the Infinite, the divine…”

The gems are available for the public to experience beginning today. The A.R.E. Meditation Room is open during all Visitor Center hours, seasonally Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sundays noon to 5 p.m.

Tyberonn has devoted himself to a lifetime of metaphysical studies, focusing on understanding the energy of the living Earth, from both a scientific and metaphysical perspective. An author and speaker, Tyberonn will present at A.R.E.’s annual Ancient Mysteries Conference in October. Learn more about meditation at

Edgar Cayce 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 simply to help people around the world change their lives for the better through the ideas and information found in the Cayce readings. 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. Visitors from around the world come to experience conferences featuring speakers on subjects like ancient mysteries, holistic health, and spiritual development. The campus is also home to Atlantic University (AU), which offers two masters degrees (Transpersonal Psychology and Mindful Leadership) 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.
