Our Meditation Garden was renamed the Harris Prayer and Meditation Garden after being renovated, expanded, and beautified, thanks to a generous donation by A.R.E. member Dr. Samuel D. Harris.
A wooden stairway leads to the peaceful garden, which has a waterfall, a footbridge, stone walkways, relaxing benches, and a lighting system along a koi pond. It is truly a mystical place filled with peace.
The motivation behind Dr. Harris's gift was his respect and admiration for Edgar Cayce, whom he first learned about in the 1960s through the Cayce biography, There Is a River.
Harris says that his contributions to the meditation garden are a way for him to show his appreciation for Cayce, his work, and his legacy: "I just want people to enjoy [this place] as much as I do.”
The most frequently recommended tools for achieving this attunement are the regular practice of prayer and meditation. Cayce believed that prayer was talking to God, while meditation was listening to God. Learn more by downloading our free flier (PDF) on this topic.
