Spiritual Growth Study Groups

The Study Group Experience

In 1931, Edgar Cayce began to give a series of readings that outlined individual steps toward true spiritual growth. A group of people working on understanding these concepts, practicing them, and writing about their experiences worked with Edgar Cayce to put these concepts into lessons and published them as A Search for God, Books I and II. (Study Group members receive these books for half price when contacting headquarters.) These groups, known as Study Groups, continue to meet today.

The frequency of meetings can vary – weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly. Most groups meet in private homes or public facilities and generally consist of 4-10 members. The length of the meeting is 1–2 hours. Groups follow the outline given to the original Study Group, provided by the Study Group program. With shared leadership, each member takes a turn at facilitating the discussion. We offer both in-person and online groups. Please contact A.R.E. Headquarters for our zoom meeting options. This unique blend of committed listening and participation from each person, praying and meditating together, coupled with the encouragement to apply the experiences and knowledge in daily life has brought about astonishing changes for good in the lives of group members.
