Edgar Cayce's A.R.E.
Edgar Cayce (1877–1945) founded the non-profit Association for Research and Enlightenment (A.R.E.) in 1931, to explore spirituality, holistic health, intuition, dream interpretation, psychic development, reincarnation, and ancient mysteries—all subjects that frequently came up in the more than 14,000 documented psychic readings given by Cayce.
The Mission of the A.R.E. is to help people transform their lives for the better, through research, education, and application of core concepts found in the Edgar Cayce readings and kindred materials that seek to manifest the love of God and all people and promote the purposefulness of life, the oneness of God, the spiritual nature of humankind, and the connection of body, mind, and spirit.
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.
A.R.E. conferences, international tours, camps for children and adults, regional activities, and study groups allow like-minded people to gather for educational and fellowship opportunities worldwide.
A.R.E. offers membership benefits and services that include a quarterly body-mind-spirit member magazine, Venture Inward; a member newsletter covering the topics of ancient mysteries, personal spirituality, and holistic health; and access to the entire set of readings in an exclusive online database.
A.R.E.’s publishing arm, A.R.E. Press, began publishing books in 1931, and has since branched out into DVDs, CDs, ebooks, and digital media. In 2009, the organization launched a second imprint, 4th Dimension Press, in order to offer additional like-minded materials. Individuals can purchase A.R.E. Press/4th Dimension Press products in nearly any bookstore or online.
Tools for Wellness, Spiritual Growth, and Personal Empowerment for over 100 years.
