The Cayce readings state that our spiritual journey is individual and that each of us must find our own way ”…through the gaining of that hope that ever lies within each individual, that may be awakened to that divine that is within every entity of its relationship to its Creator or to the Creative Energies as may be manifest through a human soul.” Edgar Cayce Reading 6-2
John was in his mid-twenties when he first read the ancient Chinese Taoist text The Secret of the Golden Flower: A Chinese Book of Life. Shortly thereafter he attended a series of highly unique classes taught by two of A.R.E.’s finest teachers, Hugh Lynn Cayce, President of A.R.E., and Herbert Bruce Puryear, Ph.D. that combined the Cayce readings with mystical Christianity, Jungian psychology, and the Taoist teachings found in this ancient text. John was greatly affected by both the Cayce readings and the wisdom of the Golden Flower teaching.
Some fifty years later, after practicing the Golden Flower meditation method for much of his life, John has developed a training program based on Cayce and the Golden Flower teachings and methods.
In this program John will share what he has learned through both lecture and experientials including:
- The search for the divine, original, and higher Self within
- What Cayce & ancient Chinese mystics tell us about the flow of energy through the spiritual centers of the body
- How to deepen your experience of meditation and the flow of the Light
