About A.R.E. Tours
Do you have questions and want to talk about this tour before signing up? Call us at 800-333-4499, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
For more than forty years, the A.R.E. has been offering annual travel programs to explore concepts in the Edgar Cayce material while visiting a variety of travel destinations that focus on insights from the Cayce readings, dreams, meditation, as well as all of the activities popular with "regular" tourists.
The tour content is meant to provide an educational and enrichment element that is not found on most tours. All of the tours are led by outstanding speakers and teachers in the metaphysical and holistic fields, specifically from the Edgar Cayce perspective. Top local guides, who are also part of each program, highlight the historical and cultural aspects that would be included in any first class tour. Special care is taken to include the heart and soul of the areas visited. Emphasis is placed on sacred sites and areas of historic spiritual significance.
