The congratulations and compliments poured in last weekend as we celebrated the Grand Opening of the A.R.E. of New York Edgar Cayce Center’s new home on West 27th Street!
The weekend’s historic opening featured fascinating presentations by consummate Cayce researchers Sidney & Nancy Kirkpatrick about the remarkable relevance of his work today as the information and insights they shared propel us into a new understanding of human consciousness and its potential to create a heaven on earth.
The Kirkpatricks shared treasures from the vault about the life and readings of “the Sleeping Prophet,” “the Father of Holistic Medicine” and “the Miracle Man from Virginia Beach” in two presentations: From Kentucky Farm Boy to Great American Mystic, and Edgar Cayce: Ushering in the New Consciousness. And at Friday night’s Golden Heart Reception, they entertained our generous donors, staff and volunteers with examples of humor from the Cayce readings.
On Saturday evening, we celebrated the dedicated volunteers who have made it possible for there to be an Edgar Cayce Center to enlighten NYC for the past 19 years, and now, for us to manifest this wonderful new home in the heart of NYC!

We were joined by founding Center Director Lynne Miceli and her husband Peter now living in Norfolk, Va. They write:
It was wonderful sharing this past weekend with our New York Community, celebrating the Grand Opening of the new Center, seeing old friends and making new ones. We've now witnessed the openings of three A.R.E. of New York Centers.This is, by far, the most attractive one. May it be a home for enlightenment for a growing community of seekers! Congratulations to the whole Community for manifesting this lovely new space!
From Sidney & Nancy Kirkpatrick:
“We could feel the spirit of joy and fellowship as we joined our greater Cayce family to celebrate the 19th Anniversary of the New York A.R.E. Center and the grand opening of its new space on 27th Street. From the intimate Friday night Golden Heart donor reception, to the anticipation and excitement of the ribbon-cutting on Saturday, and the final parting hugs on Sunday night, all who participated knew that this was a momentous occasion, and that through the door that was collectively opened would pass those who would carry Cayce’s work long into the future.
Among the participants was special guest Robert Schor, recipient of a Cayce reading in 1944, who, with a sparkle in his eye, expressed his admiration for the New York team when he said: ‘How very far we have come!’ We salute Sylvia Chappell for her steadfast support, Lynne Salomon Miceli, for her decades-long selfless dedication to building the New York community, and all of those who join hands and hearts to continue to carry the spirit of the Cayce work into the world.”
We are so grateful to Sidney and Nancy, Lynne and Peter, our superb staff and volunteers, and to our community… your prayers, talents, energies, visions and contributions made this possible!
