The Mission of A.R.E. is simply to help people change their lives for the better through the ideas and information found in the Edgar Cayce readings. Through its many programs, services, publications, and outreach, the A.R.E. provides individuals from all walks of life, levels of education, and religious backgrounds with tools for personal empowerment and healing at all levels-body, mind, and spirit. We strive to be your personal resource for spiritual growth, holistic health, and mindful living.
Edgar Cayce's Association for Research and Enlightenment, Inc. (A.R.E.®), is a not-for-profit organization founded in 1931 by Edgar Cayce (1877-1945), to research and explore transpersonal subjects such as holistic health, ancient mysteries, personal spirituality, dreams and dream interpretation, intuition, and philosophy and reincarnation.
With an international headquarters in Virginia Beach, Va., a regional headquarters in Houston, regional representatives throughout the U.S., Edgar Cayce Centers in 37 countries, and individual members in more than 70 countries, the A.R.E. community is a global network of individuals who offer conferences, educational activities, and fellowship around the world. Thousands of books have been written on the subject matter found in the readings, and dozens dedicated to the story of Edgar Cayce himself.
In addition to study groups and local regional activities, A.R.E. offers membership benefits and services, a bimonthly member magazine titled Venture Inward, member newsletters, publications, conferences, international tours, a massage school curriculum, a retreat-type camp for children and adults, an impressive volunteer network, and A.R.E. contacts across the globe. A.R.E. also maintains an affiliation with Atlantic University (which offers continuing education classes and a master's degree program in transpersonal studies), and an onsite Health Center & Day Spa at its Virginia Beach headquarters, where many of the health readings remedies are offered along with massage therapy.
