Edgar Cayce Institute for Intuitive Studies (ECIIS)

The mission of the Edgar Cayce Institute for Intuitive Studies (ECIIS) is to create a socially recognized, valued, and applied spiritual science of intuition following the inspiration of the life and work of Edgar Cayce. The principles in the Edgar Cayce readings, when creatively applied, suggest a path by which we may accept, apply, and benefit from our natural paranormal abilities to improve both individual lives and our society. Perhaps Edgar Cayce’s best legacy is the innovative idea that we are all psychic and that we can function together intuitively to improve life on this planet and to accomplish our Spiritual Mission as souls.

The Institute offers many opportunities for the general public and A.R.E. Members to participate in research and service projects under the leadership of Dr. Henry Reed, Senior Fellow at ECIIS. Henry has a track record of creating innovative research strategies for revealing dormant psychic and intuitive abilities, approaches which he has been able to publish in peer reviewed journals. One objective of ECIIS is to take the Edgar Cayce principles into the mainstream of psychological science with applications available to the masses. Visit to take part in a revolutionary series of pilot projects, to create suitable experiments to attract folks and create “apps” for the general public that will serve to “normalize the paranormal,” the subject of Henry’s current series in Venture Inward magazine, available to A.R.E. Members. Learn more at
