Edgar Cayce’s A.R.E. (Association for Research and Enlightenment, Inc.) is a non-profit, tax-exempt 501 (c)(3) corporation funded primarily by the generosity of our members. Through a variety of education, outreach and service programs, the focus of the organization is to help individuals change their lives for the better – physically, mentally and spiritually.
