- Edgar Cayce reading 550-4
The Cayce Experience is a collaborative effort between A.R.E.’s CEO and Board of Trustees to bring the organization’s mission and vision to fruition. We seek to adhere to its call, “To create opportunities for profound personal change in body, mind, and spirit through the wisdom found in the Edgar Cayce material.” We are exploring this through wellness excursions that seek to unlock our inner wisdom.
This transformative experience seeks to bring the Ideals to life by honoring local customs, cultures, and communities through an immersive and experiential journey—so we are not “just to be moving or trooping about” (1074-2) but developing an appreciation and awareness of how we are all connected with each other and our world.
We welcome you to explore Dubai(UAE). Immerse yourself in a culture and traditions where hospitality is central to everyday life.
- Come enjoy lectures from our illustrious staff, who will support you in your journey to further your knowledge of self. When you arrive enjoy a warm welcome with a cup of “gahwa” (Arabic coffee, made with cloves, cardamom, cumin, and saffron).
- Get a chance to escape and attend a traditional sporting event of Emirati heritage, including falconry, camel racing, and equestrian sports.
- Delve into Dubai’s rich culture and historical legacy while visiting traditional style villages with wind towers and courtyards. Look at pottery and weaving by local artisans, or simply learn to bring forth cultural understanding and exploration.
There is so much more, but you have to be there to experience the beauty of this journey.
This journey is educational, but it is also a time of fun—where incredible memories will be made and friendships developed. Put simply, it is a celebration of the Soul and each other.

Pearson feels the mandate to help enhance the possibilities of peace on the planet through his emphases on a more inclusive approach to spirituality, encouraging interfaith dialogue and fellowship. He teaches that we don't have to go along to get along, that we can mind many of the same things without necessarily having the same mind about everything. His work towards racial reconciliation, bridging the gap between ethnic groups, nations and denominations, has given him audience with kings, presidents, other government officials and people of influence, both in America and abroad.

Our purpose is to help create and provide people with both techniques and emotional technologies to both discover and recover their divine selves, bridging our humanity to our divinity. We are about renewing and re-knowing who we are as not only human beings looking for spiritual experiences, but spirits having individual as well as collective earthly encounters. Navigating and negotiating through these encounters calls on and calls up what he calls the God gene, genius and/or genie (energy) resident in all of us; that life doesn't just happen to us, but through us and as us.
