About Us - Suburban Maryland


Suburban Maryland is located adjacent to Northern Virginia and the District of Columbia. Maryland is the 9th smallest state by area, but the 19th most populous and the 5th most densely populated of the 50 United States. According to Wikipedia, of the 50 states, Maryland has the highest median household income, making it the wealthiest state in the nation. Maryland possesses a variety of topography, hence its nickname, "America in Miniature."


The majority of Maryland's population is concentrated in the cities and suburbs surrounding Washington, D.C., and also in and around Maryland's most populous city, Baltimore. The other population centers of Maryland include the suburban areas of Frederick in Frederick County, Columbia and Ellicott City in Howard County; Silver Spring, Rockville, Bethesda, and Gaithersburg in Montgomery County; and Laurel, College Park, Greenbelt, Hyattsville, Landover, Clinton, Bowie, and Upper Marlboro in Prince George's County.

The Suburban Maryland Team works closely with the Northern Virginia Team. Like the Northern Virginia Team, the Suburban Maryland Team consists of A.R.E. members and volunteers who make the Cayce work available by maintaining a network of study groups and by sponsoring programs on spiritual growth, ancient mysteries, and holistic health.  

Spiritual Growth Groups


Spiritual growth groups are small groups of people who gather together on a regular basis for spiritual development. Led by Edgar Cayce, the first study group formed in 1931 to deepen their understanding and application of the information given by Mr. Cayce during his trance sessions. This material is referred to as the “Readings” and forms the basis for three books: A Search for God, Books I, II, and III. Today these books are used by hundreds of people around the world to study, discuss, and apply as experiments in daily living. 

Spiritual growth groups typically meet for two hours and, in addition to the discussion, each group meditates and prays together.  Members also work to apply helpful concepts from the Readings in their daily lives. Although the Search for God books constitute the foundation for the group work, complementary material is often included in for study and application.
