We all know that the new year is a perfect time to reflect on the last twelve months and look forward to creating a new tomorrow. This favorite annual tradition—which includes a New Year’s Eve party with music, dancing, light refreshments, and a peaceful midnight meditation—will bolster your resolutions to improve your body, mind, and soul, and give you the tools to make those changes last.

Using the transformative concepts found in the Edgar Cayce readings, the A Search for God materials, and other like-minded teachings, you’ll explore core topics and techniques that Cayce assured us could help accelerate our soul’s growth in practical and insightful ways.

You’ll also explore the A Search for God study group material—considered by many to be Edgar Cayce’s greatest legacy—with long-time students/teachers like Mark Thurston PhD, Cheryl Baer-Bernath CHt, and others. Gain unique, powerful tools for shaping your current and future life in transformative yet practical ways. You will find valuable new methods to apply the life-changing lessons of Cayce’s work—and other great teachings—to your daily life. You will also:

  • Be both inspired and enlightened as the history, message, and purpose of Cayce’s spiritual legacy is brought to life
  • Explore the often misunderstood concept of “patience,” which is much more than just “waiting”
  • Learn what Cayce said about the importance of meditation and introspection to our spiritual and psychic development
  • Understand how dreams can help keep us on the path and give us guidance—including insights into past lives
  • Gain ways to know and live your ideals—the forces that motivate us and guide our lives

PLUS: Enjoy special optional membership and study group activities, and don’t miss our festive New Year’s Eve party with fun, fellowship, music, dancing, light refreshments, party favors, and a peaceful midnight meditation.
