EVENT SPOTLIGHT: CAYCE IMMERSION RETREAT WEEK
A.R.E. Tours is embarking on a new type of travel experience—a unique, immersive tour TO the A.R.E. Headquarters in Virginia Beach. This six-night “vacation for the soul” Cayce Immersion Retreat Week will take visitors on a one-of-a-kind experience designed to be both enriching and fun, with a relaxing and rejuvenating two-hour spa treatment in the A.R.E. Health Center & Spa.
Other special activities include a guided labyrinth walk, regression hypnotherapy session, an exclusive meditation workshop with John Van Auken, a ”secrets of the vault” visit to the Edgar Cayce Foundation’s archive, a catered dinner party with special guests, and more. It concludes May 22 with a day at the Bookstore’s Mind Body Spirit Fair, with additional workshops, lectures, and time to explore and shop the artists and vendors.
Originally named “The Cayce Hospital for Research and Enlightenment,” this historic landmark was built in 1928 as a result of Cayce’s dream to help others with the holistic health information that was brought forth in his psychic readings. Cayce gave psychic readings for patients while a highly trained staff of physicians, physical therapists, nutritionists, body-workers, and other health care professionals carried out the treatment. The hospital opened in 1929 with 30 beds but was eventually lost during the Great Depression. The building was repurchased by A.R.E. in 1956 and renovated in 2014.
Today this building is home to the A.R.E. Health Center & Spa, offering many of the holistic services originally available through the hospital.
Our highly-trained staff of clinicians and therapists focus on total mind, body, spirit care, holistic health and personal well-being of each of our clients while utilizing the methods and techniques outlaid in the Cayce readings.
