The A.R.E.

We also host local speakers who provide practical information from the Edgar Cayce Readings as well as their own experience.


Think on These Things

Timeless Gems from the Edgar Cayce Readings

Charles Thomas Cayce, Ph.D.

Join us on Saturday, November 14, 2015, for a day of enlightenment led by Edgar Cayce's grandson, Charles Thomas Cayce, Ph.D. and Edgar Cayce's great granddaughter, Corinne Cayce, MA.  This is a rare opportunity to be with two Cayce family members sharing their wisdom and experiences with the Readings.

But do not put off today that which will bring hope and help to the mind of another … Those things that make for the putting off become a joy never fulfilled. Use, then, the experiences from day to day as the basis, and these will grow under thine very effort; surprising even to self as to the joy that comes from same, and gradually taking shape to become a joy to self and blessings to others.. . . . Reading 877-9

Edgar Cayce said "As we find and as we have given, always the face of the guide or guard to each soul in its walks in the earth has its angel .... And these [angels] are always ready to guide, to guard, if the soul will but put itself in position in material things to be guided by spiritual truths." (Reading 531-2)

Your Soul Remembers

Accessing Your Past Lives through Soul Writing 

Joanne DiMaggio

Join us Saturday, October 24, 2015, from 1:00 pm until 4:00 pm, in Bethesda, Maryland, for a look at past lives. Following her groundbreaking work in developing the soul writing technique, author and past life therapist, Joanne DiMaggio, conducted a six-month research project to determine whether soul writing was something anyone could use to access information about a previous lifetime. Fifty volunteers underwent a traditional past life regression in which their soul led them to the past life most impacting them now. After the session, but while still in an altered state of consciousness, they were given a journal and pen and instructed to ask their soul if there was any additional information it could provide that was not forthcoming in the regression. As each volunteer received that information through soul writing, Joanne also connected to Source and used soul writing to obtain additional details on their behalf. The results were astounding—proving that pertinent past life information was available to everyone through soul writing.


This three-hour experiential workshop will include a fascinating discussion to highlight some of the surprising results from that research project, including the unexpected emergence of a soul group and a case of spontaneous healing. Joanne’s work is based on the Cayce readings on inspirational writing and she weaves in pertinent readings throughout the presentation. A group past life regression/soul writing session will follow.
