EVENT POSTPONED. PLEASE CHECK BACK FOR UPDATES.
Due to the concerns about the Covid-19 Coronavirus, and out of an abundance of caution, this event will be postponed to a later date. Please check back for updates.
As we postpone and cancel programs to protect everyone’s health and safety during this turbulent time, the A.R.E.’s funding and mission will be very hard hit. If you are able, please consider donating your refunded tuition price back to A.R.E. Please let us know you’d like us to turn your registration fee into a donation… or make a donation today. You can also ask us to keep your tuition on file so you can use it to sign up for one of the online offerings we have--hundreds of Headquarters Conferences presentations are available, and new ones are on the way! All of your favorite A.R.E. speakers and authors sharing their best and most popular topics—Kevin J. Todeschi MA, Corinne Cayce MA, John Van Auken, Cheryl Baer-Bernath, Peter Woodbury MSW, special guest speakers, and more—available to you on your desktop, tablet, or mobile device. Go to EdgarCayce.org/online and start viewing today. Be inspired, be enlightened, be educated, and be entertained in the comfort of your own home or on the go.
The first lesson . . . should be One-One-One-One; Oneness of God, oneness of man’s relation, oneness of force, oneness of time, oneness of purpose. Oneness in every effort—Oneness-Oneness!
— Edgar Cayce Reading 900-429
Sometimes it seems as if today’s world—and our own lives—are more divided than ever, and that can create a sense of separateness that can cause us to feel overwhelmed and isolated. But the Edgar Cayce readings and other enlightened worldviews give us a very different perspective; they describe a world full of hope and connection, love and oneness. In fact, the readings tell us we are co-creators with God and that our “Mind is the Builder.” The readings also give us guidance and tools to put those ideas into practice and manifest a life filled with meaning and purpose. Whether it’s in our own minds, our daily lives and relationships, or in the world around us, we can all create connection where there is division, harmony where there is discord, and peace where there is turmoil.
This NEW full-day workshop is dedicated to helping you create a more fulfilling future for yourself and for us all. You will feel more connection, gain greater compassion for others, and discover the peace and hope that reside in the future we are all co-creating. You will also participate in exercises to define your ideals for yourself, for our nation and for our world as you become an active co-creator, blending spiritual practices, intentional prayer and service to others to build the reality we want for ourselves, and for our future.
Known for his practical insights, uplifting stories, and real-world experience, Patrick Belisle—a popular presenter and A.R.E.’s director of philanthropy—will help you:
- Determine your spiritual ideal—something Cayce said is THE most important thing we can do in our lifetime
- Heal the divisions and sense of detachment that can come from the illusion that we are all separate from the Whole
- Release negativity and gain compassion
- Get a better understanding of your mission and purpose in this life
- Create your own blueprint for spiritual renewal—for yourself and for our world
For the mind is the builder, and as the soul thinketh so it is.
— Edgar Cayce Reading 261-27
For millennia, the spiritual teachers who have directly experienced the Divine tell us again and again: We are ONE. The Cayce readings turn this idea into reality and they give us clear guidance toward living in that Oneness. In this program, Patrick Belisle will make these esoteric ideas practical and useful to you in your day-to-day life. Through various exercises throughout the day, you will experience a bit of that oneness and feel more connection, gain a greater sense of understanding, and embrace your role in helping shape a future filled with unlimited potential. The program also includes a special guided reverie for visualizing and creating an ideal vision for ourselves, our country, and our planet, led by long-time Cayce readings researcher and teacher Joy Scott.
