The Life of Edgar Cayce
tens of thousands of people — from all over the world — become
interested in the life work of one ordinary man. He was an
average individual in most respects: a loving husband, a father
of two children, a skilled photographer, a devoted Sunday
School teacher, and an avid gardener. Yet, throughout his
life, he also displayed one of the most remarkable psychic
talents of all time. His name was Edgar Cayce. 75 years ago
in 1931 the organization was founded that preserves and expands
the work he started.
Daily for over forty years of his adult life, Cayce would
lie down on a couch with his hands folded over his stomach
and allow himself to enter a self-induced sleep state. Then,
provided with the name and location of an individual — anywhere
in the world — he would speak in a normal voice and give answers
to any questions about that person that he was asked. These
answers, which are called "readings", were
written down by a stenographer, who kept one copy on file
and sent another to the person who had requested the information.
Today, on file at the library of the Association for Research
and Enlightenment, Inc., in Virginia Beach, Virginia, are
copies of more than 14,000 of Edgar Cayce’s readings. These
are available to the public and have been filed along with
any follow-up reports received from the individuals who had
asked for the readings. This material represents the most
massive collection of psychic information ever obtained from
a single source. The organization, which continues to research
the readings, has grown from a few hundred supporters, at
the time of Cayce’s death in 1945, to one which is now, literally,
worldwide. Countless individuals have been touched by the
life work of this man who was raised a simple farm boy and
yet became one of the most versatile and credible psychics
the world has ever known.

Edgar Cayce was born near Hopkinsville, Kentucky, on March
18, 1877. He had a normal childhood in most respects, one
rich with the heritage of 19th century farm life. One of five
children, he grew up surrounded by a large family with grandparents,
uncles, aunts and cousins living nearby. Like many children,
he had imaginary playmates, but they vanished as he grew older.
He was raised at a time when much of the country was experiencing
the excitement of religious revival meetings. This atmosphere
may have in part accounted for his lifelong interest in the
Bible, and even as a child his dream was to become a medical
missionary. At that early age no one would have ever guessed
the unusual manner in which his dream would become a reality.
At the age of six or seven, he told his parents that he could
sometimes see visions, occasionally talking to relatives who
had recently died. For the most part, his family attributed
these experiences to his overactive imagination and paid little
attention to them. He found comfort in reading the Bible and
decided to read it through from cover to cover, once for every
year of his life. Its stories and characters thus became familiar
and very real to him. At the age of thirteen, he had a vision
which would influence him for the rest of his life: a beautiful
woman appeared to him and asked him what he most wanted in
life. He told her that, more than anything, he wanted to help
others — especially children when they were sick.
Shortly after the experience, Edgar displayed a talent that
could no longer be explained by his family in terms of the
boy’s imagination. Edgar could sleep on his school books and
acquire a photographic memory of their entire contents. It
was found that he could sleep on any book, paper or document,
and upon awakening, be able to repeat back, word for word,
any length of material — even if it contained words which
were far beyond his limited education. The gift helped him
in school, but gradually faded. In order to financially help
his parents, Edgar left school at the age of sixteen and started
working with an uncle on his grandmother’s farm.
The following year, the family moved to Hopkinsville. Edgar
got a job at the bookstore on Main Street. A few months later,
he met, and fell in love with Gertrude Evans. They became
engaged on March 14, 1897, four days before Edgar’s twentieth
birthday, and decided to marry when he would be able to support
In June of 1898, Edgar lost his job and worked for a while
in a dry goods firm before moving to Louisville, large city
in Kentucky, where he had obtained a better paying job in
a bookstore. At Christmas 1899, he went back to Hopkinsville
and formed partnership with his father, Leslie Cayce, who
was then an insurance agent. Edgar became a traveling salesman.
At the turn of the century, almost twenty three years old,
he seemed to be doing quite well, selling insurance as well
as books and stationery, and he became confident that it wouldn’t
be long before he could afford to get married. However, one
day, after taking a sedative, he developed a severe case of
laryngitis. He wasn’t really concerned at first — after all,
many people lose their voice for a day or two — but the condition
persisted. Doctors were called in and later on specialists,
but still Edgar was unable to speak above a whisper. As the
days turned into weeks, he was forced to give up his job as
a salesman and look for something else he could do that didn’t
require much speaking.
Return to Top
He found the perfect job in Hopkinsville as a photographer’s
assistant. There he could be close to Gertrude and his family,
and it wouldn’t bother him so much that his condition was
incurable. Although he was often saddened by the fact that
he had never been able to finish school and become the doctor
and preacher he had dreamed of, he found comfort by reading
his Bible and became content with the idea of settling down
with a wife and children.
At this time, hypnotism and stage shows
were experiencing a renewed revival in this country. One showman,
who called himself "Hart - the Laugh Man [King],"
brought his comedy and hypnotism act to the Hopkinsville Opera
House. Although not a therapist, Hart was successful and conscientious.
When he heard about Edgar’s trouble, he accepted as a challenge
to try to cure his laryngitis. In a first session, Hart hypnotized
him and told him that he would be able to regain his voice.
To the amazement of everyone present, Edgar could respond
to questions in his normal voice. However, he didn’t take
the posthypnotic suggestion, and his hoarseness returned when
Hart awakened him. The experiment was attempted repeatedly
by the visiting hypnotist; each time, Edgar was able to speak
normally in his sleep state. Nevertheless, when the young
man was told to wake up, his soft-spoken whisper returned.
The local papers became excited about the case. Even when
Hart left Hopkinsville because of other commitments, Edgar’s
predicament was not forgotten. Many people became convinced
that somehow hypnotism was the cure to Cayce’s difficulty.
Knowing that some patients under hypnosis showed powers of
clairvoyance, a New York specialist interested in the case
advised to repeat the experiment but, this time, instead of
suggesting that the young man’s voice return, ask Cayce to
talk about his own problem. His parents were against the idea.
Ever since the first experiment with Hart, their son had lost
weight. It appeared as though the sessions were a drain on
his physical body. Gertrude let her fiancé make the
decision, for with or without his voice they could have a
life together — and besides, Edgar rather liked working with
Edgar consented to one further test. A local man, Al Layne,
was found to give the suggestions. Layne had educated himself.
Not only had he worked with hypnotism, but he was familiar
with osteopathy as well. Edgar offered to put himself to sleep
— much as he had done when he had slept on his school books.
Once he was asleep on the couch, Layne asked him to explain
what was wrong with him and how he could be cured. And Cayce
spoke back! He described the cause as a "psychological
condition producing a physical effect." He went on to
explain that the problem could be removed by suggesting to
him — while he was in the unconscious state — that the blood
circulation increase to the affected areas. After Layne made
the suggestion, he and Cayce’s family watched in amazement
as the upper part of Edgar’s chest and his throat turned a
bright crimson red and the skin became warm to the touch.
Twenty minutes passed. Edgar spoke again and said [mentioned]
that, before awakening him, the suggestion should be made
that the blood circulation return to normal. Layne followed
these instructions. When Cayce wakened, he was able to speak
normally again, healed from his laryngitis which had lasted
an entire year. The date, March 31, 1901, marked the first
time Edgar Cayce had ever given a psychic reading.
Return to Top
He, his parents, and Gertrude were overjoyed. His plan was
to continue being a photographer and get married as soon as
possible. He wouldn’t have given another thought to putting
himself into the sleep state again, except that Al Layne had
witnessed something extraordinary and was beginning to have
other ideas. For years, Layne had been bothered by a stomach
difficulty that doctors had been unable to cure. Because he
knew enough about medicine to realize what therapeutic suggestions
could be harmful, he asked Edgar to try giving a reading on
the stomach problem. Although skeptical, Edgar agreed, for
he felt obligated to Layne for having helped him regain his
voice. The reading was given to satisfy Layne’s curiosity.
Asleep on the couch, Cayce spoke in a normal voice and described
the problem exactly; he recommended herbal medicines, foods,
and exercises for improvement. After one week of following
the sleeping Cayce’s suggestions, Layne felt so much better
that he became even more excited about Edgar’s ability, and
he strongly encouraged him to try other tests.
Edgar Cayce felt as if he had been placed in a precarious
position. On the one hand, this business of readings was very
strange to him. He knew nothing about medicine or the diagnosing
of illness. On the other hand, he only wanted to live a normal
life in Hopkinsville with a wife and a family. Yet Layne argued
that he had a moral obligation if his talent could be helpful
to people. Finally, after a great deal of prayer, after talking
it over with his family, and after looking to his Bible for
guidance, he agreed to continue the experiments under two
conditions: the first was that if he ever suggested anything
in the sleep state that could be at all harmful to people,
they would stop the readings, and the second was Layne had
to always remember that Edgar Cayce was first, and foremost,
One of the earliest readings was for a five-year-old named
Aime Dietrich, who had been seriously ill for three years.
At the age of two, after an attack of influenza — which doctors
then called the grippe — her mind had stopped developing.
Since that time her tiny body had been racked with convulsions.
Her mind was nearly a blank and, though doctors and specialists
had been consulted, she had only gotten worse instead of better.
Cayce put himself to sleep while Layne conducted the reading
and wrote down everything that was said. The sleeping Cayce
said that Aime’s problem had begun a few days before catching
the grippe — she had fallen and injured her spine while getting
down from a carriage. The influenza germs had settled in her
spine because of the trauma, and the convulsions had begun.
The little girl’s mother verified the accident. While still
sleeping, Edgar Cayce recommended some osteopathic adjustments
that were to be carried out by Layne. Layne made the adjustments
on the little girl’s spine and got a check reading. The sleeping
Cayce told Layne he hadn’t done them correctly and gave further
instructions! After several attempts, Layne was able to carry
out the suggestions to the exact specifications of the sleeping
photographer. Several days later, Aime recognized a doll she
had played with before getting sick and called it by name.
As the weeks passed, her mind recognized other things as well,
she knew her parents, and finally the convulsions stopped
completely. Within three months, Aime’s mind was catching
up to where it had left off, and she became a normal, healthy,
Return to Top
Cayce was happy that he had been able to help, but he still
wanted only to live a normal life! However, Layne’s enthusiasm,
along with the enthusiasm of Cayce’s own father and people
like Mr. and Mrs. Dietrich, made it more difficult to lead
a simple, ordinary, everyday life style! Cayce continued giving
readings without charge, while Layne conducted. It was soon
discovered that Cayce only needed the name and location of
an individual to be able to give a reading, diagnose the person’s
condition, and outline a regimen of treatment. The readings
puzzled him — many times he didn’t even understand what he
had said after he had awakened and looked at what Layne had
written down — but he never forgot to say a prayer of thanksgiving
when someone got well because of his gift.
In those days, Cayce resided in Bowling Green, some sixty
miles away from Hopkinsville, and worked in a bookstore. Layne
visited him every Sunday to obtain readings for his patients.
On June 17, 1903, after an engagement of more than six years,
Gertrude Evans and Edgar Cayce were finally married. In spite
of his being uncomfortable with the readings, his life was
fulfilling. He had a loving wife, a home, a Sunday School
class at the local church, and a good job. A year later he
formed his own photographic partnership and was able to open
Eventually, Layne decided to become a fully accredited osteopath.
The number of patients coming to him had continued to increase
as he and Cayce had become more well-known, and so he left
Hopkinsville to enter the Southern School of Osteopathy. Cayce’s
belief that the readings might be put to rest for a time was
short-lived, however, because a group of local medical doctors
took up the study of his psychic ability. They performed tests
on the sleeping Cayce, some of which turned out to be detrimental
Cayce spent most of his time working as a photographer. The
studio was prosperous. However, when a fire destroyed a large
collection of prints and reproductions that he had on consignment,
Cayce was in debt. Nine months later, another fire wrecked
the studio. Edgar opened it again in two weeks. He took upon
himself all the losses, for his partner had withdrawn. Gertrude
returned to Hopkinsville with Hugh Lynn, their son born on
March 16, 1907. Edgar stayed in Bowling Green to pay off his
debts. He left in August of 1909, totally broke. He then looked
for a job in Alabama, where photographers were scarce.
He visited his family for Christmas. His father introduced
him to Dr. Wesley Ketchum, a homeopath who had settled down
in Hopkinsville. Dr. Ketchum had heard of Cayce through some
of Layne’s former patients, and he decided to get a reading
for himself. He had recently diagnosed himself as having appendicitis,
and he wanted to see if Cayce would be able to discern this.
However, while asleep, Cayce gave an entirely different diagnosis
and outlined a simple treatment. In order to humor the young
man, Dr. Ketchum went to another doctor for a third opinion
and discovered that Cayce’s diagnosis was indeed correct.
Dr. Ketchum started using Cayce’s psychic talent in his most
difficult cases. In 1910, he submitted a paper to the American
Society of Clinical Research, calling Cayce a medical wonder.
As a result, the October 9th issue of the New York Times
featured a long article on Cayce. The headline read: "Illiterate
man becomes a doctor when hypnotized." Because requests
for readings were pouring in, Dr. Wesley Ketchum, Edgar Cayce,
Leslie Cayce and Albert Noe, wealthy hotel man, formed the
Psychic Reading Corporation. Edgar returned to Hopkinsville,
where he opened a photographic studio, the "Cayce Art
Studio". He began, in his spare time, to give readings
on a daily basis. He became known as a psychic diagnostician,
though he was much happier as a photographer. It wouldn’t
be until the following year that his attitude about the readings
would finally change.

In one instance, a rich construction supervisor, whose name
was Mr. Dalton, severely fractured his leg and kneecap in
an accident. He was told by several doctors in town that they
could set the leg, but because of the seriousness of the injury
(Dalton’s kneecap was damaged beyond repair) he would never
be able to walk normally again. Not satisfied with their reports,
Dalton consulted Dr. Ketchum. Cayce gave a reading and recommended
what was an extremely radical treatment for 1905: Ketchum
was to consolidate the kneecap with several nails [was to
drive several nails into the kneecap to hold it together].
The procedure was unheard of at the time, but Dr. Ketchum,
trusting in Cayce, carried it out. The surgery was performed,
and several months later Dalton was up and walking around
as though the accident had never occurred. Edgar Cayce’s fame
continued to spread.
Gertrude and Edgar had their second son in 1911. They named
him Milton Porter. Soon after his birth, the baby developed
whooping cough and later on colitis. Several doctors were
called in, but the baby continued to get worse. Cayce never
really thought about consulting the readings until the doctors
had given up hope. As a last resort, Cayce gave a reading
for his second son. When he woke up, he was shattered to learn
that the condition was too serious. The readings offered no
hope, and the baby died before it was two months old.
Afterwards, Cayce and his wife went into a state of depression.
He blamed himself for not getting a reading sooner — perhaps
it might have helped; now he would never know. Gertrude’s
health was affected. She became weak after the baby’s death,
and the doctor thought she had contracted pleurisy. As the
months continued to pass, the illness hung on, and she showed
no signs of improvement. In fact, she was getting worse and
was eventually confined to bed.
By late summer, Gertrude’s doctor had changed his diagnosis.
He called Cayce aside and spoke the awful truth: Gertrude
had tuberculosis and was dying. A TB specialist confirmed
that nothing further could be done. Everyone expected her
to die by the end of the year except her husband. Edgar gave
a reading. While in the sleep state, he recommended a combination
of prescription drugs as well as filling a charred oak keg
with apple brandy. Gertrude was to inhale the fumes to clear
up the congestion. Although the doctors claimed that the combination
of drugs would be useless, Dr. Ketchum wrote the prescription.
After following this treatment for only two days, Gertrude
was feeling better and her fever had fallen. By September
she was even better, and by November even her doctors decided
she was going to get well. By the first part of January, 1912,
Gertrude Cayce was fully recovered.
That same year, Edgar Cayce was investigated by a delegate
from Harvard University, Dr. Hugo Münsterberg. The latter
was determined to prove that Cayce was but a freak and ruin
his reputation. When he left Hopkinsville, he was convinced
of the legitimacy and the effectiveness of the readings, and
he encouraged Edgar to practice his unusual talent which was
helping so many people.
Return to Top
Cayce broke his partnership with Ketchum and Noe. He went
to work as a photographer in Selma, Alabama. The following
year, he bought for himself the studio where he was employed,
and had Gertrude and Hugh Lynn move to Selma. There, he could
escape from his growing notoriety and began to live a quiet
life. However, this did not last long. One day his son, Hugh
Lynn, was playing with flash powder in the studio and severely
burned his eyes. The local doctors gave no hope that the boy
would ever see again. In fact, they recommended removing one
of the eyes due to the extent of the damage. Cayce decided
to give a reading instead. In the sleep state he gave assurance
that sight was not gone. He recommended an additional compound
to be added to the solution that had been prescribed by the
doctors and said Hugh Lynn should stay for two weeks in a
darkened room with his eyes bandaged. No eye surgery was performed,
and when the bandages were removed, the boy could see. Local
newspapers picked up the story and again, Edgar Cayce was
famous. He began giving readings in addition to his job, and
like he had done in every other city he had lived in, he became
active in the local church and started teaching Sunday School.
On February 9, 1918, Gertrude gave birth to another son, Edgar
The request for readings continued, and Edgar Cayce was faced
with a problem. Although people were being helped by the readings,
many were having difficulty finding doctors to carry out treatments
recommended by a sleeping man that the doctors had never even
met — a man who, in many instances, had never seen the people
he was diagnosing. Cayce began dreaming of having a hospital,
staffed with fully qualified doctors, nurses, and therapists,
who would carry out the treatments recommended in the readings.
It was this dream that caused him to form an ill-fated partnership
with others who were seeking oil. He went to Texas to give
readings on possible oil sites but was disappointed time and
again. The readings made it quite clear that the information
was never to be used for financial gain and that some of his
partners did not share his dream of a hospital. They wanted
money only for themselves.
Edgar Cayce returned to Selma, Alabama, and picked up where
he had left off. He had his wife, his two sons, his business,
and the church. His Sunday School classes became the most
popular in the county because Cayce had the ability to make
the Bible come alive. In the Fall of 1923, he hired a secretary,
Gladys Davis, to take down the information in the readings
while Gertrude conducted and asked her sleeping husband the
Until 1923 most of Cayce’s readings were limited to medicine.
However, that year a printer from Dayton, Ohio, who had obtained
successful readings for two of his nieces, asked Cayce for
a horoscope reading. Toward the end of the reading [5717-1]
the sleeping Cayce spoke the curious sentence: "he was
once a monk." That statement opened up the door to a
whole new area of research — the possibility of reincarnation.
Return to Top
All at once, Cayce was faced with a new dilemma. There wasn’t
any doubt that the information was helpful and accurate when
dealing with health, but the readings matter-of-fact reference
to reincarnation seemed foreign to his fundamental Christianity.
He prayed about it, did much soul searching, and obtained
a few readings. He was advised to read the Bible once through
from cover to cover while keeping the idea of reincarnation
in mind. What emerged was a beautiful view of Oneness that
encompassed all of the world’s major religions, with special
emphasis on the Judeo-Christian religion.
The underlying philosophy was that life is a purposeful and
an eternal experience; that everything which exists is part
of God; that each of us is one of God’s children, and we are
all equal; and that we have the total free will to learn to
love one another. Edgar Cayce found that the concept of reincarnation
was not incompatible with any religion but, more important,
he found that the idea merged perfectly with his own beliefs
of what it meant to be a Christian.
Soon afterwards, the "life-readings" were developed.
They dealt with an individual’s previous lifetimes, as well
as the person’s potential for this lifetime. Eventually the
topics in the readings expanded to include such items as mental
and spiritual counsel, unusual approaches to the studies of
psychology and parapsychology, information on the world’s
history, intriguing thoughts about the missing years of Jesus’
life, and even advice for improving personal relationships.
Because the requests for readings continued to grow, Cayce
gave up his photography studio and began looking for the financial
backing for his hospital. He also began to accept donations
for the readings, but he never refused to help those who were
unable to pay. Because of the helpfulness of the readings,
several backers were found to make Cayce’s dream of the hospital
a reality. One group wanted to locate the facility in Chicago,
another wanted it to be in Dayton. However, time and again,
the readings advised that the hospital be located in or near
Virginia Beach, Virginia. Finally, a New York businessman,
Morton Blumenthal, agreed to finance the project.
In September of 1925, the Cayce family moved with Gladys
Davis to Virginia Beach. In 1927, the Association of National
Investigators was formed. Its purpose was to research and
experiment the information contained in the readings. Its
motto was: "That We May Make Manifest Our Love for God
and Man." The following year, on November 11, 1928, the
Edgar Cayce hospital opened its doors. Patients came from
all over the country to have a reading and then be treated
by a qualified staff composed of doctors, nurses, and therapists.
The sleeping Cayce gave each patient a reading, diagnosed
the ailment, and recommended everything from a change of diet
to surgery. The readings favored no single school of medical
thought but instead used all of them in appropriate circumstances.
Return to Top
In spite of the stock market crash of October 1929, a university,
"Atlantic University", opened in the Fall of 1930.
Until 1931 the hospital operated successfully. In the midst
of the Depression, however, financial backing was lost and
the hospital had to close its doors in February. The University
survived until Christmas.
In June of that same year, the Association for Research and
Enlightenment, Inc. [A.R.E.], was formed as a research body
whose goal was to investigate the information given by Cayce
in the readings. This organization became interested in such
things as holistic health care, the workings of ESP, meditation,
spiritual healing, the importance of dreams, and the study
of life after death.
People came from all over asking how they too could become
more psychic. Cayce’s response was that the goal should be
to become more spiritual for psychic is of the soul, and,
as an individual became more spiritual, psychic ability would
develop naturally. People were told that if they could incorporate
the philosophy of the readings into their own religious and
belief systems, it could be a useful and positive experience;
otherwise they were advised to leave the information in the
As the years passed, Cayce became more and more psychic in
the waking state as well. He once fled from a room in sorrow
because he knew that three young men would not be returning
from the war. He also had developed the ability to see auras,
which are fields of light that surround all living things.
From these auras Cayce could perceive people’s moods as well
as their overall physical condition.
As his fame grew, so did the number of skeptics. Many people
came to Virginia Beach to expose him as a fraud, but in time
all were convinced of the legitimacy of what he was doing.
Many stayed in Virginia Beach and received readings for themselves.
One staunch Catholic writer, named Thomas Sugrue, came to
Virginia Beach to investigate what he thought had to be trickery
and ended up writing There is a River, the biography
of Edgar Cayce which was published in 1943 while he was still
alive. Coronet magazine, one of the most popular of
the era, sent a reporter to investigate. The article, written
by Marguerite Harmon Bro, "Miracle Man of Virginia Beach",
drew widespread attention, and Edgar Cayce became more famous
than he had ever been before.
During the height of World War II, sacks of mail were delivered
to Cayce with ever-growing requests for readings. Despite
the readings’ warning that he should give no more than two
a day, Cayce began giving eight in an effort to keep up. Gladys
Davis’ appointment book had readings scheduled two years in
In the spring of 1944, Edgar began to grow weak. His own
readings advised him to rest, but he felt a tremendous obligation
to those who were asking for his help. Finally, he collapsed
from sheer exhaustion, and just as he gave his first reading
for himself, he gave his last reading for himself — in September
of 1944. The reading told him he had to rest. When Gertrude
asked "How long?" the response was "until he
was well or dead." Shortly afterwards, he had a stroke
and became partially paralyzed. By the end of the year his
friends feared the worst. Although Edgar told them he would
be healed after the first of the year, they understood what
he meant — and he died on January 3, 1945. At the time, no
one really understood how ill Gertrude was, yet within three
months, on Easter Sunday, she died as well.

Gladys Davis took it upon herself to preserve the information
she had taken such great pains to write down, until Edgar’s
sons returned from the war. Eventually, she took charge of
the project of cataloguing and indexing all of the 14,145
readings. Gladys finished indexing the readings in 1971, more
than a quarter of century after Cayce had died! After the
indexing, she discovered that the readings covered more than
10,000 different subjects — nearly every question imaginable
had been asked. She continued working as secretary for the
Board of Trustees of the Cayce organizations until her death,
at the age of 81, in 1986.
Hugh Lynn took over the organization his father had started
and was able to encourage interest all over the world. When
Hugh Lynn died, in 1982, the Association had grown from a
few hundred members into one composed of ten of thousands.
Nowadays, innumerable individuals in the world benefit from
the Edgar Cayce legacy on health, reincarnation, dreams, psychic
phenomena, spiritual growth, comparative religions, astrology,
prophecies, world affairs, and much more.
Just what was the source of Edgar Cayce’s remarkable ability
— an ability, he claimed, anyone could develop? Apparently,
Cayce obtained his information in two different ways: first,
he was somehow able to tap into the subconscious mind of the
person who was asking for information; and in the second way,
he could tap into what he called "the Akashic Records"
— a record Cayce said was written on the skein of space and
time and could also be called "God’s Book of Remembrance".
From these two sources, he was able to speak knowledgeably
on virtually any subject.
Today, several organizations work with the information contained
in the Edgar Cayce readings. The A.R.E.
continues to make the material more readily available through
practical presentations and publications, and members throughout
the world are kept up-to-date on developments in regard to
the things Cayce spoke about. The Edgar Cayce Foundation
is a separate organization that is legally responsible for
the readings. It spends time and resources doing research
and sponsoring comparative studies between the Cayce information
and other schools of thought. Atlantic
University, which closed in 1931, was reactivated
in 1985 and offers a master’s degree in Transpersonal Studies.
Research Center analyzes the medical information contained
in the readings and incorporates the material into contemporary
Together, these organizations have found that the psychic
information of the photographer from Kentucky has stood the
test of intensive research.
