What is ARE NY?

What is A.R.E.?

Association for Research and Enlightenment, the non-profit organization founded by Edgar Cayce (1877-1945) in 1931 in Virginia Beach, Va., to help people transform their lives for the better, through research, education, and application of core concepts found in the Cayce readings and kindred materials. Since Cayce's day, there has been an active and important A.R.E. community in New York City.
