welcome to Edgar Cayce’s A.R.E. headquarters

Each year, the A.R.E. Headquarters in Virginia Beach attracts more than 100,000 individuals from around the world—vacationers, scholars, researchers, philosophers, health care professionals, and students of all kinds.

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 development at both individual and global levels.
