Virginia Beach , VA


COME UNCOVER THE MYSTERIES and wisdom of our earliest civilizations, SEE the latest discoveries from the field, EXPLORE suppressed histories of humanity’s origins, and EXAMINE the influence of the ancient past on our current culture and destiny.

Explore mysterious Atlantis and Mu, mystical Egypt, ancient native America, prehistoric Europe, and even the evidence for ancient flight and extraterrestrial contact.

Why? BECAUSE YOUR SOUL WAS THERE! Latent within you are all the memories and skills your soul possesses from those ancient times—lost knowledge waiting to be found. This conference stimulates your deeper mind to recall all you have known and to awaken it to this incarnation.

Celestial theorist Gary A. David shares Hopi legends of sailing across the Pacific to North America, which was confirmed by Edgar Cayce, who described a number of entities that originated on the island-continent of Mu. Their arrival changed the landscape of the Americas and the prehistoric structures they left behind have an astonishing celestial connection. 

Ancient mysteries expert John Van Auken brings stunning images of the ancient world, and takes you on a journey to the distant past with fascinating insights into archaeological evidence of ancient flights and alien visitations.

Edgar Cayce readings expert Grace F. Yuksek explores the rise and fall of Atlantis as told in the Cayce readings, and shares how this highly advanced culture still impacts us today.


Travel 11,000 years back in time and discover the echoes of a missing high civilization, as seen from the eyes of the ancients of New Zealand, Yucatan, Japan and the Far East, the Nile, and the Andes with pioneering sacred sites expert Freddy Silva. Explore how these groups of wisdom keepers and architects appeared out of nowhere and embarked on a global temple-rebuilding program hoping to kick-start the human race after an apocalyptic global flood.

Explorer Scott Creighton brings the latest discoveries in the search to determine the true age of the great pyramid that will reshape your understanding of this massive structureand give you an entirely new perspective and understanding of our ancient past.

Megalith investigator Hugh Newman takes you on a fascinating journey around the world, examining the gigantic stone monuments of the megalithic culture from Scotland to France and Poland, North America, Africa, India, and Japan. Discover the meaning and message of mysterious structures like Stonehenge, and explore earth grids and ley lines.

Historian and theorist Edward Malkowski shares the truth behind ancient myths and connects them to a real extinction event that occurred 12,000 years ago. He brings us hope for the future of mankind as he shows how the return of celestial conditions for a Golden Age of peace and abundance are upon us.

Visionary crystals expert James Tyberonn brings new insights into the power of gems and stones for auric fortification, illumination, and healing of the body/mind and the planet-including the magnificent crystals located in A.R.E.'s meditation room. He will also bring insights that reveal the story of Atlantis from an enlightening new perspective.

Saturday, October 6 - 4:00-5:00 p.m. Meet the presenters and authors close-up. Ask that question that has been on your mind. Get the latest books autographed by the authors. Enjoy like-minded people, conversation, and refreshments.
