John Van Auken will present the fascinating details about the Essenes that came through Edgar Cayce as his deeper mind was connected to the Universal Consciousness. This workshop will include:
- A virtual tour of the two main sites of the Essenes: The Qumran Caves, where the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered, and Mount Carmel, the site of the Essene Temple and Education Center.
- The relationship of the Dead Sea Scrolls to the Essene community.
- Cayce’s concept of past lives and the possibility that some of us may also have spent time with or as an Essene.
- How Essenes are reincarnating NOW to enliven a spiritual movement in preparation for the Golden Age, as laid out in the Revelation.
