Visit the international headquarters of Edgar Cayce’s A.R.E.—Association for Research and Enlightenment, founded in 1931 by Edgar Cayce, the father of holistic medicine. Research subjects from his readings including holistic health, dreams, intuition, ancient mysteries, ESP and psychic phenomena, meditation and prayer, spiritual growth, life purpose, and more. Join us daily for a free movie, tour, and lecture on topics from the readings. Open to the public, our Library is one of the world's largest metaphysical resources, housing more than 85,000 volumes. Enjoy a massage at our Spa, shop the Bookstore & Gift Shop, relax in our meditation garden, stroll the stone labyrinth and reflexology walk, or enjoy a delicious meal at our Cafe. The center also offers membership benefits, experiential group tours, and hosts conferences and workshops year-round. Offering tools for personal empowerment and healing at all levels—body, mind, and spirit. A great rainy-day activity; visit our historic campus seven days a week. World-class massage. Metaphysical library. Unique Bookstore & Gift Shop. Guided by spirit, Edgar Cayce moved his family to Virginia Beach in 1926. He instigated the construction of one of the oldest existing structures remaining in the City. Opened in 1928 as the Cayce Hospital of Enlightenment, the building today is home to the A.R.E. HEALTH CENTER & SPA and is listed on the City of Virginia Beach Historic Register. The original hospital building is just one architectural treat on the A.R.E. campus. Witness the post-modern architectural example that is the campus Visitor Center. The A.R.E. Visitor Center houses the BOOKSTORE & GIFT SHOP, the world-class LIBRARY, and a Meditation Room with ocean views. The campus is also home to The Edgar Cayce Foundation, Atlantic University, Cayce/Reilly School of Massage, and A.R.E. Press. Tours of the Foundation vault are only available by special advance appointment by calling 757-457-7204.
