People come from around the Potomac area region, as well as visitors to the DC metro area, to attend our programs. During the spring and fall of each year, we have the privilege of hosting a prominent speaker from Edgar Cayce's A.R.E.  In the past, we have hosted Charles Thomas Cayce,  Kevin Todeschi, John Van Auken, Peter Woodbury, Dr. Mark Thurston, and Dr. Norm Shealy.


The A.R.E. MidAtlantic Retreat is another opportunity for people from the Potomac region to connect.  The retreat is held annually in June of each year in Shepherdstown, West Virginia.  Prominent speakers, well-versed in the Edgar Cayce Readings,  provide information and activities set in a beautiful venue, Shepherd University, located in northeastern West Virginia, on the banks of the Potomac River.  

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


After We Die

An Exploration of Death, Heaven, Ghosts, and the Soul's Journey Beyond Death

Echo Bodine

Join us on Saturday, October 25, 2014 for a high-spirited day examining the soul's journey beyond death presented by Echo Bodine, psychic/medium, healer, and ghost buster. 


Have you ever wondered what life is like beyond the physical?  Where we go when we die? Can we connect with other people who have died or other spirits like angels, ghosts, or spirit guides? 


Echo Bodine uses her wit and wisdom to answer these and other questions that you may have about life, the purpose of existence, and proof of heaven.  


In this one-day program, Echo will lead us in a stirring exploration of the journey of the soul:  your pre-life plan, the meaning behind your experiences, how healing works, and the nature of the death and dying process.  In addition, Echo will share her experience with ghosts and ghost hauntings.


Echo Bodine is a nationally recognized authority on spirit and spiritual development.  In addition to authoring several books, her work has been featured in major newspapers and magazine, and she has appeared on several national television shows.  She also hosts her own show, Intuitive Living.

To register for this conference, contact the A.R.E. Conference Registrar at 800-333-4499 or Online.

Edgar Cayce said "... it is not all of life to live, nor yet all of death to die.  For life and death are one, and only those who will consider the experience as one may come to understand or comprehend what peace indeed means." (EC 1977-1)

Your Soul Remembers

Accessing Your Past Lives through Soul Writing 

Joanne DiMaggio

Coming Spring of 2015, to Bethesda, Maryland, is Joanne DiMaggio. 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 PowerPoint 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.


An inspired writer, lecturer and teacher, Joanne DiMaggio, MA, CHt, has been actively involved with Edgar Cayce’s Association for Research and Enlightenment (A.R.E.) since 1987. She was a founding member of the A.R.E. Heartland Region in 1990 and is currently coordinator for A.R.E. Charlottesville. She has been a guest speaker for the A.R.E. and other esoteric organizations across the country and has been on numerous radio programs. Joanne earned her Masters in Transpersonal Studies degree and her Spiritual Mentor certification through Atlantic University and her Certified Hypnotherapist designation through the Eastern Institute of Hypnotherapy. She has been professionally pursuing past-life research and therapy for over 25 years, including heading her own research center in the Chicago area. She has written two books: Soul Writing: Conversing With Your Higher Self, and its sequel, Your Soul Remembers: Accessing Your Past Lives Through Soul Writing. Joanne is the founder and director of the Unity Holistic Healing Center at Unity of Charlottesville in Virginia.
