Join us as Edgar Cayce Foundation Archivist Jessica Newell discusses the people behind the Work of Edgar Cayce's A.R.E.
What can we learn from the people who nurtured Edgar Cayce’s A.R.E. into existence and through the challenging years following Edgar Cayce’s passing? Edgar Cayce Foundation Archivist Jessica Newell invites you to meet the dedicated founding members who applied their diverse skills, talents, and life experiences to bring the Cayce work to public consciousness during the early 20th century. The E.C.F. Archives preserves the insightful letters, the messy brainstorming session notes, the first newsletters printed on hand-cranked machines, and many more original documents that provide a new perspective on the work behind the Work. Supporting such great teachers as Hugh Lynn Cayce, Lydia Schrader Gray, Elsie Sechrist and Mae St. Clair were an incredibly creative and determined group of people from all walks of life – salesmen, doctors, homemakers, artists, writers, and serious academics – who saw value in keeping Edgar Cayce’s work vibrant and applicable to all aspects of modern life. Jessica brings these early years to life and inspires you to follow in the footsteps of these pioneering spiritual explorers.
