Long before psychic mediums John Edward or Sylvia Browne, there was a poor Kentucky farm boy named Edgar Cayce whose life-transforming concepts and amazing psychic readings made him the father of holistic medicine and the engine behind what became the New Age movement. It has not been until now, however—when Sidney D. Kirkpatrick, internationally acclaimed New York Times bestselling author of Edgar Cayce: An American Prophet, was given full and unrestricted access to Edgar Cayce’s papers—that the real story of the “sleeping prophet” can be told.

Edgar Cayce could not do what he did alone. He needed someone to put questions to him, and someone to record and transcribe the discourse. He needed someone who genuinely wanted his help. He needed a team, a group of family, friends, and supporters-- just as his readings tell us that we need a group with whom, and by design, we are to share life’s experience—our soul group.

This wisdom with the Edgar Cayce readings is as relevant today-often even more so-as it was when it was first delivered. Sidney shares the wisdom of the Cayce readings with warmth, humor, and insight, including: 

  • Fascinating stories, humorous anecdotes, and soul growth guidance
  • Exploring Cayce’s soul group—and what you can learn from their experiences, challenges, and triumphs
  • Tales from the vault, such as what Cayce told Thomas Edison and Nikola Tesla about the nature of electricity and anti-gravity, and what he said about the role of women in the founding of the Christian church—long before the Dead Sea scrolls were discovered
  • One-of-a-kind circumstances under which Cayce’s psychic gift is found to be astonishingly accurate and helpful to the lives he touched
  • How we can each identify and work within our own soul groups to bring love, joy, and miracles into our own lives
