Visit Heaven Without Really Dying!


elenaElena Viada – MBA, is a NATH Certified Transpersonal Hypnotherapist, specializing in Life-Between-Lives (LBL) and Spirit Realm Exploration. In addition, Elena is an AFAA Certified Personal Fitness Trainer, a Massage Therapist, Spiritual Coach, Lecturer, and Writer.

At the FORUM, she will be sharing the amazing, profound experiece she had during her “Visit to Heaven” in her LBL session, how it affected her life, and how it transformed her parent’s lives.

Elena will also share segments of incredible, profound  experiences some of her clients have had in the Spirit Realm, so that others can benefit from the insight and wisdom they received.

This new cutting-edge system of Spiritual Exploration, allows you to travel safely in the Spirit Realm, at will, receiving direct guidance and insight from your higher consciousness, Source, Guides and/or from family and other loved ones who have “died”.  This is the same dimension where people who have Near-Death Experiences enter, where we go in-between our lives, and where we often go in our dreams.  An overview of the methodology, possibilites and benefits of LBL Regressions will be explored and presented in a simplified manner.  Specific ways to PREPARE for a successful LBL regression will also be covered.

When you have your own LBL/Spiritual Exploration session, specific deep questions you have about your life, purpose and relationships are answered clearly and directly. An enhanced understanding of why you chose this life, its challenges and lessons become clear.  You will have a renewed commitment to complete your life with energy, understanding and purpose.

October 23rd 2013 “YOUR SOUL REMEMBERS!” by Author and Lecturer **** Joanne DiMaggio ****

Sep 30
Posted by admin Filed in BOOKS, CONFERENCES, Lectures, WORKSHOP


DiMaggio_3.5x5The Your Soul Remembers workshop offered at the Edgar Cayce Forum is an abbreviated version of Joanne’s longer program exploring the fascinating discoveries she made while conducting the regression/soul writing research sessions, including a case of spontaneous healing and the emergence of a soul group. Joanne ties the Cayce material into her work and concludes with a group past life regression in which participants are taken to the past life that is impacting them in the here and now. The regression is followed by a soul writing session to gather additional information. A time for questions and sharing follows.

Joanne’s programs range anywhere from 2 hours to a full day. She’d love to tailor one of her talks to your group. Contact her for more information.

Born and raised in Chicago, Illinois, Joanne DiMaggio, MA, CHt, is a graduate of the University of Illinois and a freelance writer with a background in marketing and public relations. She worked in the Chicago media market for many years until moving to Charlottesville in 1995. During her long career, she has had hundreds of articles published in newspapers and magazines.

Joanne has been actively involved with Edgar Cayce’s Association for Research and Enlightenment (A.R.E.) since 1987. In 1990, she became one of the founding members of the A.R.E. Heartland Region, headquartered in Chicago.  She has been Coordinator for the A.R.E. Charlottesville, Virginia area since August 2008.

Joanne earned her Masters in Transpersonal Studies degree and her Spiritual Mentor certification through Atlantic University in Virginia Beach, Virginia in May 2010. Her culminating project (thesis) was on inspirational writing and served as the basis of her first book, Soul Writing: Conversing With Your Higher Self.   She formed the first Atlantic University Alumni Association for which she served as president for over two 
years. In April 2011 she was honored at the 2011 Distance Education Training Council’s annual conference as Atlantic University’s Outstanding Graduate of the year.

An inspired teacher and speaker, Joanne has given several talks on the subject of inspirational writing at A.R.E. headquarters in Virginia Beach, and to A.R.E. groups in the Chicago area; in Milwaukee; in Bethesda, MD and throughout Virginia (Charlottesville; Richmond; Waynesboro; Alexandria; and Stephens City). She also spoke at The Rhine Institute at Duke University in Durham, NC, and presented at the International Association for Near Death Studies annual conference in Washington, D.C. in August 2013. Joanne mentors month-long eGroups on soul writing through A.R.E. and Atlantic University on both Soul Writing and on to use Soul Writing to access past life information. She has been a guest on numerous radio programs and the subject of several magazine articles. She was one of the authors featured at the 2012 Virginia Festival of the Book.

Using inspirational writing, Joanne produced a small line of greeting cards called Spirit Song. The International Greeting Card Association cited one of those cards, What is Human is Immortal, for its creative excellence, choosing it as one of six worldwide finalists in the “Sympathy” category for its Annual LOUIE Awards.

Joanne has been professionally pursuing past-life research and therapy for over 25 years. In October 1991 she founded PLEXUS (Past Life Exploration, Understanding and Sharing) in Naperville, IL and brought that organization to Charlottesville under the name Athanasy in 1995. During that time she also acted as Study Group Chairman for the Association for Past-Life Research and Therapies, now known as the International Association for Regression Research and Therapies, and continues her membership in that organization today. She is also a member of the National Association for Transpersonal Hypnotherapists.

She is a graduate of the Eastern Institute of Hypnotherapy as a Certified Hypnotherapist. Joanne completed additional training in hypnosis at the College of DuPage in Glen Ellyn, IL and studied under Dr. Irene Hickman, a pioneer in the field of non-directive hypnotherapy. The years she spent as the head of her own past life research center enabled her to interact with some of the leading past life therapists, authors and other renowned practitioners from across the country.

In April 2013, Joanne founded The Unity Holistic Healing Center, a service of Unity of Charlottesville, where she serves as Director. She maintains an office there where she conducts private past life regression sessions and workshops on past-life and soul-writing related courses.

In August 2011 her book, Soul Writing: Conversing With Your Higher Self, was published by Olde Souls Press. The sequel to that book, Your Soul Remembers: Accessing Your Past Lives Through Soul Writing, was published by Rainbow Ridge Press and released in October 2013 and explores how to use soul writing to acquire past life information.

Joanne enjoys traveling to different parts of the country to participate in conferences, workshops and programs sharing how to use soul writing—a tool of transformation that anyone can learn—to acquire guidance on every aspect of life.

Soul Writing and Your Soul Remembers are both available on Amazon.

51rk9AkdWFL._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_Your Soul Remembers is proof positive that answers to questions about your past lives are at the tip of your finger. Author and past-life specialist, Joanne DiMaggio, conducted a groundbreaking research project, combining past-life regression and a form of inspirational writing she calls Soul Writing. With the help of fifty volunteers, ranging in age from 23 to 81, Joanne regressed each to the past life that was having the most impact on them now. After the regression—but while they were still in an altered state of consciousness—she placed a pen in their hand and a journal on their lap and instructed them to ask their soul for information about that lifetime that eluded them in the regression. While they wrote, she also wrote, asking her Source for information she could share. The results were astonishing. Starting in the first century and ending in the recent past, Your Soul Remembers is a veritable past-life passport that takes you to countries across the planet—from obscure hamlets to desolate fortresses, from the quiet English countryside to the wild, wild American west. History comes alive as you read firsthand accounts of what it was like to experience the destruction of Pompeii; persecution in Tudor England; abduction during the Holocaust, and how those experiences still are affecting lives today.

Your Soul Remembers includes fascinating accounts of clusters of soul groups who came forward with similar stories; of spontaneous healings after discovering the origin of a physical karma; of recognition of individuals today who played a similar role in the past.

September 25th, 2013 “EDGAR CAYCE’S AMAZING ATLANTIS, ILLUSTRATED”=by International Author and Lecturer David McMillin=

Sep 10
Posted by admin Filed in BOOKS, CONFERENCES, Lectures, SPEAKER, WORKSHOP

Dave-1There is probably no greater mystery in the history of human affairs than the legend of Altantis.  Even in our modern time of mass communication through movies, books, television, and the Internet, stories about Atlantis abound.  According to Edgar Cayce, our current preoccupation with Atlantis is due, in large measure, to reincarnation.

Cayce is probably best known for the psychic trances into which he entered and gave readings – psychic discourses on practically any topic including reincarnation and the fabled Atlantis.  The Cayce readings assert that many influential individuals alive in the world today had past lives in Atlantis.

However, the Cayce readings insist that the information should be regarded as more than a matter of curiosity about the mythic past.  Rather, due to the influx of souls reincarnating into the earth during the 20th century, he noted that this group would have an enormous impact on world events.  The same conflicts and destructive urges that brought devastation to Atlantis would be faced again.  The swift development of high technology in the early twentieth century was linked to Atlantis, where flying machines, radio, and television were said to have already been invented in the that legendary land.

In attempting to tell the story of Atlantis, this presentation will focus on relevance – on the meaning of the story – the interweaving of characters and events that resonate with the world today.  A recommendation provided by Cayce is to use colorful drawings to tell the story of Atlantis.  Hence this presentation will rely heavily on colorful graphic illustrations created with modern 3D software.  The intent is to follow Cayce’s advice to make it a visually graphic, colorful tale – in other words, visual storytelling.


David McMillin, MA, earned a master’s degree in clinical psychology from the University of Illinois at Springfield and has worked in both public mental health and private practice settings.

As a researcher with Meridian Institute, a non-profit organization dedicated to researching holistic and integrative approaches to wellness and healing, David participated in projects focusing on various modalities and systems including traditional osteopathy, chiropractic, herbal medicine, hydrotherapy, energy medicine, mind-body healing, and spiritual transformation. Meridian Institute research reports and related information can be found

As a complement to his clinical and research activities, David has had numerous mystical experiences that confirm the continuity of life and multidimensional nature of reality. The varied projects and media products for sale on this site are a synthesis of David’s diverse interests and philosophy of life.

August 28th….”Sacred Geometry and the Edgar Cayce Readings” ******* By: Don Carroll*******

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

Don Photo forum

There is evidence that the “knowing” of spirituality can be unified with the observations of science through two geometric symbols consisting of the triangle and the arc. Don Carroll shows how, through the millenniums, religions have intuited the importance of these shapes and incorporated their symbolism throughout their beliefs, while these same shapes have been found by modern science to be the essence of life and the cosmos. This shared geometry is not mere coincidence.

Don Carroll is a regular speaker and writer of metaphysical topics from Cayce to the Kundalini. He spent 10 years researching and writing his latest work just published by 4th Dimension Press, Sacred Geometry and Spiritual Symbolism: The Blueprint for Creation. Don is also an international tour leader for the nonprofit Association for Research and Enlightenment, visiting sites of a spiritual nature across the globe.

There is a wonderful Excerpt of Don’s new book titled Sacred Geometry and Spiritual Symbolism: The Blueprint for Creation in the July/August/September issue of Venture Inward (The Magazine of Edgar Cayce’s A.R.E./Atlantic University/Cayce/Reilly School of Massotherapy). Don had agreed to sign copies of his book at The Edgar Cayce Forum and it looks like it is an incredibly interesting book!

May 29th …..”Teaching of the Essenes: Walking in Harmony with Heaven and Earth” By Walt Zeller, an Essene

May 5
Posted by admin Filed in Lectures

waltTeachings of the Essenes:  Walking in Harmony with Heaven and Earth


      In a world adrift with seemingly insurmountable challenges from global warming and pollution, to oppression and ideological conflict, the ageless teachings of the Essenes provide direction and hope.  They taught a perspective of life, and living in harmony and peace with self, family, community and the world.  These ancient concepts written over 2,000 years ago can be applied to personal transformation, as well as to the transformation of the problems of the world today. 


     Walt Zeller will present his personal spiritual journey and discovery of the Essene scriptures.  Drawing on various ancient texts and references, Walt will describe and discuss the concepts of the Essene philosophy and its application in our daily lives.  His references include the Essene Gospel of Peace, the Gospel of the Holy Twelve, the Clementine Homilies, excerpts from the Dead Sea Scrolls and the Nag Hammadi codices, and the Edgar Cayce readings, as well as the writings of Josephus Flavius, Philo of Alexandria, and Pliney the Elder.


     Walt completed a 21 year military career in 2000 and then was called to a path of teaching, healing and guiding others.  He has been a Reiki practitioner since 2000, with certification as a Reiki Master / Teacher in both Usui Reiki and Karuna Reiki®.  Walt became an ordained minister in the Essene New Life Church in 2003.  He studied with the Essene Church of Christ, Order of the Nasarean Essenes for seven years, and is currently studying with the Essene Nazarean Church of Mount Carmel in their School of the Prophets. 

      Walt holds a BS in Agricultural Economics from Penn State and an MA in International Relations from St. Mary’s University.  He offers experiential meditation, instruction on healing techniques, and teaching of the Essene history, lifestyle and doctrinal practices.

The Sacred Science of Creative Spirituality from Atlantis to the Present*****By Mark Finnan*****March 27, 2013

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

new mark                                                                            THE SACRED SCIENCE OF CREATIVE SPIRITUALITY .

D o you know your true identity? Have you become the person you believe you are meant to be in this life? Are you seeking a more immediate and consistent relationship with the Divine within? Is it possible to bridge the gap between the spiritual ideal and one’s life in the material world?

As the Edgar Cayce source and others have repeatedly pointed out, and as many have experienced in different ways, we are creative spiritual beings inhabiting physical bodies. Although we may know this to be true, we are still faced with the challenge of living this truth on a daily basis.  Doubts, confusion, negative influences and pressures from within and without can cause us to slip backwards or even temporally abandon our quest. That is where our creative mental ability comes into play as the means by which we can begin to more fully and effectively attune to and express who we really are day by day. From Atlantis to the present we have been trying, with the help of many teachers and in a multitude of ways, to reconnect with the source of our being, the Divine within ourselves.

Having been created as spiritual beings, we immersed ourselves in this material experience to the degree that we became entrapped in it. However through millennia, and with the help of other souls and numerous experiences in the earth we have been able to slowly reawaken to the spiritual aspect of ourselves. This progress has in the past most often been achieved by way of religious ritual, sacred ceremony, vision questing, asceticism and suffering. More recently our understanding of the innate and living connection between spirit, mind and body, and the subsequent development of integrational and transpersonal psychology, has given us greater insight into our triune nature and enhanced our ability to consciously attune to and express the higher aspect of ourselves. To more efficiently and effectively ‘ know ourselves to be ourselves, yet part of the whole. ‘

Creative Spiritual Development is one such process. It is based on the guiding ideal recommended by Cayce, the principle that ‘mind is the builder’ and incorporates directives found in the Search for God material. The result is a creative and dynamic approach to harnessing our own causative nature and achieving inner harmony. The process, like the actor’s art, relies on the conscious and disciplined use of creative imagination and being in the moment. However, unlike the actor’s art, it engages us in knowing and portraying our true self. It puts us centre stage in the Divine drama of our own life. From a scientific standpoint, the evidence of its effectiveness lies in the day to day experience of the individual as he/she develops greater self-awareness and relates more creatively and positively to others and to everyday circumstances. We are given greater freedom and opportunity to pursue our highest purpose.


Mark grew up in Ireland, immersed in Celtic legend and lore. As a young actor and writer exploring his own spiritual path he was introduced to the Cayce material at a lecture on Atlantis and the soul’s journey in the earth. As a result he attended other lectures offered by the Dublin based Center for Living Research, a personal development-spiritual growth center started by Paula and Edward Fitzgerald. So began a life long study and association with the Cayce material. Introduced to Dr. Roberto Assagiolli’s work of Psychosynthesis and the innovative therapeutic hypnosis technique developed by Dr. Terance Noble, he enrolled in the Creative Spiritual Development course being taught at the center. Having found the process beneficial in his own life he has taught it to others over the years. An author, playwright and actor, his work has been presented on stages in Ireland, Canada and the U.S. as well as on A&E and Vision TV. He has devoted many years to writing and performing a series of sacred dramas, which are presented annually by Sacred Arts Productions. He has written extensively for The Open Road and other magazines on subjects covered by the Edgar Cayce readings.
