With an organizational vision focused on oneness, the mission of Edgar Cayce’s Association for Research and Enlightenment (A.R.E.) appeals (and applies!) to people the world over. A Japanese documentary film titled The Readings, premiered in Japan in November, highlighting Cayce and the impact of his work on humanity. The film made its U.S. debut March 10, 2018, at a conference in Olympia, Washington and now it's made its way to Charlottesville.

It’s not surprising that a Cayce documentary would launch from Japan—the Edgar Cayce Center in Tokyo is one of the largest international affiliates of A.R.E. It is also where visionary Japanese director Tetsu Shiratori learned about Cayce. His discovery of the astonishing Cayce health remedies for diabetes, rheumatism, psoriasis, and more, led to his desire to make this documentary.

“There are many Japanese people who have helped heal themselves from illness and disease by following the Cayce remedies,” said Shigeru Mitsuda, the president of Edgar Cayce Japan. “Tetsu became so fascinated by this practical information, he was inspired to make this film.”

Shooting took place in Cayce’s birthplace of Hopkinsville, Ky., and at the A.R.E. headquarters in Virginia Beach, Va. Tetsu interviewed many people both in U.S. and in Japan who testified to the value of the Cayce readings. The documentary also includes re-enactments of some legendary Cayce moments, including how Cayce saved his wife through his own readings.

Cost: $10 at the door
