The mission of the A.R.E. is to offer enriching opportunities for profound and positive change in one’s life. We offer core concepts found in the Edgar Cayce readings and kindred materials that seek to promote the purposefulness of life, the spiritual nature and oneness of all life, and the connection of body, mind, and spirit.
Each year, the A.R.E. Headquarters in Virginia Beach attracts tens of thousands of individuals from around the world. For countless reasons, these individuals come to investigate the information that Edgar Cayce brought forth in his psychic “readings” and discover for themselves how that material may be used today in the fields of health, personal spirituality, intuition, education, and research, and to promote spiritual growth.
The Visitor Center offers free activities every day, including a film, tour, and lecture. We also have a weekend meditation class and E.S.P. demonstration and self-test. Visit EdgarCayce.org to learn more.
The A.R.E. Library, the jewel of the Visitor Center, houses not only the transcripts of the more than 14,000 Cayce readings that were preserved during his lifetime, but also one of the largest, most respected metaphysical libraries in the world. Whether you’re a serious scholar doing research or just stopping in to visit, the library’s extensive collection of often-hard-to-find books on holistic health, psychic experience, psychology, and comparative religions is at the top of your must-see list.
The A.R.E. Bookstore & Gift Shop located in the Visitor Center offers a wide variety of body-mind-spirit products including jewelry, gemstones, crystals, and of course, books covering the full-range of topics mentioned in the Edgar Cayce readings.
The A.R.E. Health Center & Spa, with appointments daily for therapies to enhance your health–body, mind, and spirit. Whether you’re in Virginia Beach for a day, a week, or an extended period, you owe yourself a Cayce/Reilly® massage; it’s like no other in the world!
Sharing a space with the spa, is The Leaping Lizard Cafe, offering sandwiches, wraps, soups, salads, and more! Enjoy a view of the ocean from our porch!
The A.R.E. campus also houses the unique Cayce/Reilly® School of Massage, offering professional training in holistic massage therapy, advanced post-graduate bodywork courses, and hands-on Continuing Education weekend workshops at the professional and introductory levels.
