Out of the Mouths of Babes: Children Who Remember Past Lives—August 29, 2012—-CHERYL BAER-BERNATH

Posted by admin Filed in CONFERENCES, Lectures, SPEAKER, WORKSHOP

Out of the Mouths of Babes:  Children Who Remember Past Lives


          Just where are these extraordinary children who remember what we as adults often do not?  They are everywhere.  They are in all cultures and all countries.  They go to your schools and your churches.  They live just around the corner from you… and they are in your kitchen eating your cereal!  And they are talking—-but are you listening?  With an open mind and an open heart we have the amazing opportunity to “en-courage” them and fill them with the sense they are believed and accepted for their True, Authentic Selves.  Not just the little self in a little body but the Big Self… that infinitely complex, Timeless Self with many facets, only one of which may be physically visible to us now.

You may be a “believer” or maybe your mind is just open a crack
maybe the crack occurred when a young son or daughter still in diapers said something so mind-blowing that your world shifted and you had to re-organize your vision of reality… something like “Remember when I used to be your Mommy?”  Or “When I was big…”  A statement made with such simplicity and sincerity and as matter-of-fact as requesting another glass of milk.  That’s exactly what happened to me.  And I knew that in that next moment, my response would largely determine how my child would forever view me… as well as himself…

And so, this is an evening of stories shared with me by parents, grandparents, teachers, childcare workers… and the children themselves and is for anyone with a desire to understand from whence we came and towards what are we all headed.  This talk is about developing trust. ..about how to open the door to get a precious glimpse of a child’s True Authentic Self… how to ask the right questions if a memory comes up… and how not to slam the door in the face of a child’s desire to connect with you in the most profound way! Because… what if you told someone who you truly were and they didn’t believe you???

Cheryl Baer-Bernath

            When Cheryl was born her father bought her mother a copy of “The Search for Bridey Murphy” to read in the hospital.  That book (which became a bestseller) exposed the general population at that time to the concept of reincarnation as we know it.  She laughs that “thus began her lifelong fascination with the subject!”  A Certified Hypnotherapist specializing in Integrated Imagery, she has studied with pioneers in the Past Life Regression field such as Delores Cannon, Roger Woolger and John Amoroso and (in a “previous life within this life”) traveled extensively as a singer and musician originally out of Buffalo, N.Y., before relocating to Virginia Beach to study and work at the A.R.E. in 1991. She is presently the ARE Headquarters Conferences Facilitator as well as a popular speaker on Edgar Cayce’s concepts of Reincarnation and Dreams and has been featured on various nationally syndicated radio shows as well as ARE’s own Reflections radio show.   Her personal experiences as a mother as well as a Play Therapist working with children with autistic spectrum and emotional issues led to her highly acclaimed article in ARE’s Venture Inward magazine (Mar 2009 issue) entitled:  “Out of the Mouths of Babes:  Children Who Remember Past Lives.”

May 30th, 2012 “NUMEROLOGY – WE”VE GOT YOUR NUMBER!” by Henry Conlan

Posted by admin Filed in Lectures


Numerologist Henry Conlan

Headline in The Courier, Findlay, Ohio   February 4, 1987

“Numerologist Aids People To Reach Their Potential”

  Henry Conlan has 30 years of experience as a professional numerologist, appearing on TV and radio shows, as well as in magazines and newspapers. He has lectured in Australia, Europe and America. All these years, he has been involved in the Edgar Cayce work.

Numerology is the science of numbers; it originated with Pythagoras-a philosopher of ancient Europe. Pythagoras put meaning to numbers, and then numbers to colors and music. Numerology is a guide. It accurately reveals an individual’s personality by displaying strengths and weaknesses, allowing that person to unleash their full potential. In particular it allows people to realize possibilities already present.

Introducing Henry Conlan

  • Henry Conlan is Australia’s foremost Numerologist, with a long history of chillingly accurate assessments and more than 26 years’ media experience.

In 1977, Henry was taught a Pythagorean System of numerology by Claire Barry in Adelaide. Two years later, he travelled through America, England and Scotland doing numerology workshops. Among other places, he talked at the celebrated Findhorn community, the 5th festival for mind and body at Olympia in London, and the A.R.E. in Virginia Beach. He was invited by the Montessori school to teach curious believers in the numeric arts.

After returning home in 1981, Henry moved to Brisbane and began practicing numerology full-time and within months, had developed a strong media profile with contributions to Queensland newspapers, radio and television.

  • During 1982 and 1983, Henry toured New Zealand doing radio talk-back and paper articles. In 1984, he was granted a Private Employment Agencies License.
  • During 1984, Henry was employed by Brisbane radio station 4BC to present the one-hour radio show “People By Numbers”, beginning an association with the station that is still in place in 2008.
  • Henry relocated to Sydney in 1985, where further radio and television spots followed. At the end of 1986, he spent three months in the USA, extensively practicing numerology — which resulted in paper articles in Ohio and radio talks in Texas.
  • Back in Brisbane in time for EXPO ’88, Henry became a regular on Channel 10 and resumed his radio talk-back spot with Radio 4BC.
  • During 1993, he joined The Sunday Mail with a weekly numerology column with articles on the political scene and sporting people for over six years.
  • In 1995, he became a regular guest on Brian Bury’s talk-back program on 2UE, as well as spots with fellow presenters Alan Jones and Stan Zamanek. In 1999, Henry was given his own numerology column with the “B” Magazine.
  • Henry’s extraordinary talents were spotlighted again during the 2000 Olympic Games, with regular media interviews including Queensland TV’s Brisbane Extra.



Henry Conlan is available for:

- Workshops and retreats

Workshops can range in length from a few hours to a two-day program. They usually emphasize the BIRTHDAY. Covering the Grid, Pinnacles (cycles) & Challenges, and the YEAR NUMBERS. Participants learn how to do charts. Through practice, they further gain confidence and accuracy.

                                                                                                                                                                                                         By: Don Carroll

He is the author of articles for Venture Inward Magazine and the Edgar Cayce website along with lecturing in the afternoons at A.R.E.


His lecture on the Edgar Cayce cubit and sacred sites demonstrates the significance of the Cayce reading 281-25 which identifies the ancient Egyptian cubit unit of measurement of 27.5 inches.  He reveals how this unit of measure has been incorporated in3 different sacred sites on 3 different continents, possibly the first international unit of measurement of ancient civilizations. Also explained is the spiritual importance and purpose of this unit of measurement, combining spirituality and science.

February 29th, 2012 “SOUL MATES – THE MYSTERY OF KARMA” ***by Peter Woodbury****

Feb 3
Posted by admin Filed in CONFERENCES, Lectures, SPEAKER, WORKSHOP

     Karmistry:Understanding the Karmic Mystery of Chemistry & Relationship

With Caycophile, Peter Woodbury, MSW


Did you ever wonder why you were never attracted to that “perfect” person your parents and friends liked so much?  And then you fell heads over heels for the one they all knew was wrong for you? And you even agreed with them!  But that elusive “chemistry” was missing in one but not the other.  In this workshop, you’ll come to understand about ‘Karmistry” – the interplay of karma and chemistry that fuel our love interests. And whether you’ve found your soul mate or are still looking, this workshop will help you understand Edgar Cayce’s profound  perspective on who and why we love, our soul journey and purpose, our relationship choices, and illuminate the subject of soul mates, soul groups and twin souls.  This promises to be an enlightening evening you won’t want to miss!


Peter Woodbury, M.S.W., has been a student of Edgar Cayce for over 20 years.  He is a graduate of Harvard University and has a Master’s Degree in Social Work from Boston University.  He is a well respected and enlightening teacher of the Cayce material.  He currently works for Edgar Cayce’s Association for Research and Enlightenment in Virginia Beach, Virginia, where he oversees the Visitors Center and the daily lecture program.  He is a frequent speaker at A.R.E. conferences, lectures around the globe, and his articles have appeared in “Venture Inward” magazine.  His deepest research is in Cayce perspective on reincarnation, soul mates, the Christ material and the Universal or Oneness Laws.  He also leads tours for the A.R.E. to the sacred sites in Egypt, Israel, Peru and Mexico.  He is fluent in Spanish and conversant in French. He also has a theater background and several times a year portrays Edgar Cayce in the highly acclaimed one man production, “An Evening with Edgar Cayce”.  He also works part time as a psychotherapist, focusing on the power of spirituality and faith as tools for transformation.  A meditation practitioner since the age of 17, Peter is perhaps best known for his warmth and friendliness, his infectious sense of humor and his ability to make complicated material accessible to almost everyone.  He lives in Virginia Beach.

YOUR DREAMS CAN TELL YOUR FUTURE By: Inge O’Bourne– November 30, 2011 Edgar Cayce Forum

Oct 30
Posted by admin Filed in Lectures

My name is Ingeborg Hella O’Bourne, nicknamed Inga.  I have five children and five grandchildren.  I love to tell stories, paint, and sing.

Reading the Edgar Cayce Material turned my life around. Writing down my dreams, as recommended in the readings, made me aware of how much intimate knowledge my dreams seemed to have about me, my life, my future, my aspirations, my problems. Dreams healed me of bulimia, cured my son of mental illness, warned me of marrying the wrong person, made me an artist and told me not to judge others.  I  think of dreams as the loving mind of God trying to guide, to help, to comfort, or to warn. My dreams have always told me how to live my life in the best possible way, but I’ve not always had the courage to follow.

The program starts at 7:30 and runs until about 9:45 P.M. at the A.R.E. Visitors Center, Located on 67th St. and Atlantic Avenue, Virginia Beach, VA 23451. program is free and open to the public; light refreshments; donations appriciated.
