Edgar Cayce

Join us on Saturday, April 25, 2020, for a day of enlightenment led by John Van Auken, or John Van Awesome, as he is affectionately known in A.R.E. circles. Having fallen in love with the Edgar Cayce vision at the age of 16, John began his lifelong study of Edgar Cayce with the classic book, There is a River, which is the book that inspired our Potomac area web site.

John will share his research and understanding about the changes the planet and humanity are experiencing ... and more profound changes are coming. 

*What were Edgar Cayce's visions of the future

*What new worldview of life's purpose is emerging

*What spiritual "earth changes" must each of us experience as we enter the New Age

These and all of your questions will be answered in this stimulating program.

"... that we see manifested in the material plane is but a shadow of that in the 

spiritual plane."  (Reading 5749-3)
