A.R.E. Camp in Rural Retreat includes Malenka Kaydan and Pat Belisle

A.R.E. Camp in Rural Retreat, Va. offers fun, relaxation, inspiration, spiritual community, and joyful learning. This peaceful atmosphere, with sessions for individuals of all ages as well as families, is a place of transformation in body, mind, and spirit. The camp, located in a beautiful valley between two mountain ridges, is surrounded by gorgeous wilderness. The ideal of A.R.E. Camp is to provide an environment where the holistic Cayce concepts can be explored in practical ways, where a simple lifestyle can celebrate our spiritual heritage, and where individuals can practice love and service with joy.

In the early morning hours of June 5, 2015 the A.R.E. Camp Dining Hall became engulfed in flames before burning completely to the ground. Thankfully, no one was hurt in the fire. The Grand Opening will be in Summer of 2017.  For more information about how you can help, by volunteering or donating, please visit EdgarCayce.org/summercamp or visit Facebook.com/arecamp.retreat.

This special episode included a presentation by Patrick Belisle, the director of A.R.E.'s Office of Development and an interview with the current Camp Manager, Malenka Kaydan.

In 1992, he met Robert Bauval and together they wrote what was to become an international bestseller, The Orion Mystery. This was followed by a string of other best-selling books, The Mayan Prophecies, Magi, The Holy Kingdom, and The New Jerusalem. Translations of Adrian's books are available in some fifteen languages besides English.
