Edgar Cayce's Association for Research & Enlightenment
Guided by spirit, Edgar Cayce moved his family to Virginia Beach in 1926. He instigated 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 Spa and Visitor Center - and the entire A.R.E. campus, with Meditation Garden and Stone Labyrinth - are open to the public seven days a week (except in cases of extreme weather). 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.
