The Study Group Experience

In 1931, Edgar Cayce began to give a series of readings that outlined individual steps toward true spiritual growth. A group of people working on understanding these concepts, practicing them, and writing about their experiences worked with Edgar Cayce to put these concepts into lessons and published them as A Search for God, Books I and II. These groups, known as Study Groups, continue to meet today. The frequency of meetings can vary – weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly. Most groups meet in private homes and generally consist of 4-10 members. The length of the meeting is about 2 hours. Groups follow the outline given to the original Study Group. Usually, each member takes a turn at facilitating the discussion. This unique blend of committed listening and participation from each person, praying and meditating together, coupled with the encouragement to apply the experiences and knowledge in daily life has brought about astonishing changes in the lives of group members.
