I'd always wanted to visit the A.R.E., ever since I learned of Edgar Cayce (the famous psychic). I'm really glad I did! The people were very warm, friendly, and welcoming. I only wished they stayed open a little later than 5:00 pm, because after the (very interesting) free lecture, it was almost closing time. I solved the problem, though, by... More

Stopped in to visit the book store to see what new books were being highlighted. I had been to the center on other visits to the beach and had read and purchased many of the Edgar Cayce's books. My first visit years ago was very exciting to me as I was working in the area of "Neuro-Linguistic Programming" and Edgar... More

You'll find a large spa offering deep tissue massage, reiki, chiropractic, and various holistic treatments, a meditation room, a labyrinth and gardens, a wonderful book/ gift shop, and a fantastic little eatery, all overlooking the Atlantic Ocean!

The facility offers a historical film to introduce Edgar Cayce. There are tours and a gift shop. A bit boring if you are not into holistic medicine.

It's been many, many years that I've been wanting to make the trip to the A.R.E. and finally there was a seminar which I had to attend. Everyone there is warm, loving and compassionate, this is got to be one of the best places in the world to hang out at. The seminar on healing was outstanding, in addition to... More

There is something about this place that still attracts me after all these years. If you don't believe in prophets then don't bother. If you can feel a presense or can experience a cold chill then go upstairs to Edgars Reading Library and pick a subject to investigate. Open up your mind and learn what it is all about. You... More

My family visited the Edgar Cayce A.R.E Association for Research and Enlightenment during our Virginia Beach vacation. What an experience! There was so much knowledge on the grounds--unbelievable! I have always wanted to do a past life reading and made an appointment for the following day. I'm glad I did. DO IT. It's really nothing short of amazing. Edgar Cayce... More
