SPECIAL 2-DAY EVENT! Exploring Reincarnation and Soul Life in the Edgar Cayce Readings
Examine Edgar Cayce’s views on the journey of the soul, learn what life is like on the “other side,” explore what karma and grace mean to our spiritual development, and understand the role of reincarnation in our soul’s growth.
November 3, 2018 - November 4, 2018
Farmington Hills , MI


The Edgar Cayce readings say a lot about death, dying, and the soul’s journey. Our soul makes an incredible journey from birth to death to rebirth and beyond, on our way back to oneness with the Source. We don’t truly die—our soul continues on its journey through God’s open door and makes a transition from this physical life to a non-corporeal soul life.

You’ll examine Edgar Cayce’s views on the journey of the soul, learn what life is like on the “other side,” explore what karma and grace mean to our spiritual development, and understand the role of reincarnation in our soul’s growth with John Van Auken, one of the A.R.E.’s most knowledgeable and in-demand presenters and researchers.

You’ll experience a group past-life regression to help you understand what your previous incarnations mean to you today with Peter Woodbury, MSW, plus gain real-life insights into your past lives with Barbara Lane PhD, author of 16 Clues to Your Past Lives.

You will also explore:

  • How and why the soul chooses to incarnate
  • What happens to our soul and our consciousness when we die from a spiritual and scientific viewpoint
  • What Cayce said to the 18 people who were told this could be their last lifetime

You will leave with the tools of inner peace and resolution that come from understanding your soul’s journey and what it means for you today, with new ways to heal your past, activate your future, and celebrate the eternal nature of the human soul!

"Life is continuous, and is Infinite!" Edgar Cayce reading 1554-2

The Cayce readings indicate that life and death are one continuous experience and that “stepping through God’s other door” doesn’t stop the inter play between the two worlds.

"Peter is an amazing presenter who deftly uses humor as part of his teaching style. He is also a master regressionist!"

"John is one of the best teachers I have ever encountered. Deeply knowledgeable, with great real world stories and examples."

"I enjoyed Barbara Lane immensely. Her unique perspective really helped me get in touch with a past life affecting me today. I can't wait to see her again!"
