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.



DO MAYAN SHAMAN BELIEVE THE WORLD WILL END IN 2012? 10/26/11 E. Cayce Forum speaker Carol Chapman

Oct 3
Posted by admin Filed in BOOKS, CONFERENCES, Lectures, SPEAKER, WORKSHOP

Carol Chapman        

“. . . In that land known as the Atlantean . .. When there was the journeying of many . . . To that portion of the sphere now known as Yucatan.” (Edgar Cayce Reading 2126-1)

In this lecture, the Mayan ruins and the ancient Maya will be shown in a new light. Edgar Cayce’s readings on the Atlantean and Lemurian origins of the Mayan culture will be examined in such a way that it will enable the participants to decide for themselves if 2012 is just media whoopla or Day One of another 26,000 year cycle. Is this important date an opportunity for spiritual awakening or a time of turmoil?

Unhappy with the sensationalistic media coverage of 2012, Carol Chapman traveled to the Yucatan four times to discover what the Maya say about 2012. As part of her research, she interviewed Mayan elders, including Day Keeper Hunbatz Men, author of Secrets of Mayan Science/Religion and Robert Sitler, PhD., Director of Latin American Studies at Stetson University and author of The
Living Maya: Ancient Wisdom in the Era of 2012

This dynamic lecture will give you an explanation of the Mayan calendar, introduce you to the Galactic Center, quote pertinent Cayce readings, describe the location of Mayan ruins with glyphs pertaining to 2012, illustrate the connection between Atlantis/Lemuria with Yucatan, and illustrate mysterious Mayan pyramids such as the serpent equinox event at the Pyramid of Kukulkan in Chichen Itza.

An examination of the following questions will round out this program:

Why December 21, 2012? Are there other possible dates? If so, why?

  • Who are the Maya? Where did they get their knowledge?
  • Is there a difference between the Maya and the Mayans?
  • Why are the Maya mysterious?
  • What did Edgar Cayce have to say about the ancient Maya?
  • What do Mayan shamans have to say about 2012 and the end of the world?
  • What should the 2012 predictions mean to us?

Carol Chapman

When faced with life’s big questions, we often find ourselves wishing for a guidebook, a manual to help us through the important decisions. But as Joanne DiMaggio so clearly points out, we do have access to all the answers we need. The process of connecting to the sacred wisdom within us—that part of us that has our answers—is always available through a technique called inspirational writing, or “soul writing.”

Edgar Cayce said it is everyone’s birthright to communicate with Source and listen to that still small voice coming from within one’s soul—a voice that guides and inspires us to find the answers that lie within. That is the essence of Soul Writing. It is a written form of meditation; a method of communication that accesses information from a higher source emanating from one’s soul.

An inspired teacher, Joanne draws upon her own experiences and her knowledge of the Edgar Cayce readings to inform and support the quest for self-discovery. With clear instructions on the soul writing process, examples of others’ experiences, and information on how to expand this process into other areas of your life, this program will help you access that deep knowing each of you holds within.

At some point in time, we are all looking for answers. Soul Writing shows you that the answers are there—just waiting for you to slow down, open your heart, and ask!

your favorite writing instrument and a journal or something to write on, as Joanne will guide us in some inspirational writing at the Forum. Her book will be available for sale and is a wonderful guide to what Edgar Cayce said about inspirational writing versus automatic writing. Her book guides you in the how-to and what not to do along with surrounding yourself with light and protection. Joanne shares many examples of responses to her own personal queries. It really ought to be a great evening!

We are unsure about the status of the forum on Wednesday the 31st of August 2011.  much depends on the after effects
of Hurricane Irene (if she hits…I  and others are trying to think it back out to sea).  We do tend to lose power where I live even in normal storms so I am not sure if I will be able to access the website to update the information about if the forum is still on or not. Additionally, I will need to hear from June Bro to insure that she is in town and has power.

Everyone stay safe and if need be you can call the A.R.E. before 5:00 on Wednesday if you think that we might be able to still do the program.


8/31/2011 Edgar Cayce Forum–JUNE BRO–The Edgar Cayce That I knew And Loved

Aug 16
Posted by admin Filed in Lectures

In 1943 June’s mother-in-law, Margueritte Harmon Bro, wrote an article for Coronet magazine titled “Miracle Man of Virginia Beach”, which spread the news around the country about Edgar Cayce’s remarkable gift. June’s husband Harmon decided to come to Virginia Beach to investigate Mr. Cayce and the information that was obtained within the psychic readings that were given. June and Harmon ended up living with the Cayce family for about a year and they both received a reading during that time. June will share some of her memories of what it was like to hear a “reading” given and the impact that it had on her life choices after receiving a “reading”.

Sixty-seven years ago, when World War two was in full swing, June Bro came to Virginia Beach with her husband to work with Edgar Cayce.  Harmon came to help out because Edgar’s son, Hugh Lynn, had been
drafted into the Army.  The experience with the Cayces and Gladys set the tone and direction for her life from that moment on.

June’s whole life had been focused on music starting with piano lessons from her mother at age four.  As a teenager, she attended the International Music Camp at Interlochen, Michigan, and studied piano with the famed pianist and arranger, Percy Grainger.  After finishing her B.A. at Drake University, she received a full scholarship at the Chicago Musical College, studying with the dean of Chicago piano teachers, Dr. Rudolph Ganz.  In the middle of her master’s degree, she and Harmon were invited to come to Virginia Beach.  Harmon had to get permission from his draft board to drop out of school for a year to study Edgar Cayce’s work for his doctoral dissertation.  They gave it to him.  June had to drop
out of her master’s program with Dr. Ganz.  She says it was a hard choice for them, but the best professional decision they ever made in their fifty-four years of marriage.


After her five children were grown, she became an ordained minister with a ministerial degree from Andover-Newton Theological Seminary.  She also received a Doctor of Ministry from the Chicago Theological Seminary.  She specialized in pastoral counseling with a focus on the psychology of Carl Jung, and later held staff positions in several churches, in a hospital crisis center, a halfway house for addicts, and a therapeutic farm for young adult psychotics.


June is a regular columnist for A.R.E.’ Venture Inward
magazine.  She made her first piano CD at age ninety, called “Soul  Soundings, and it is being sold in the A.R.E. Bookstore.  June is co-author with Harmon Bro of “Growing through Personal Crisis.”  She hopes to re-write it and bring it back into print.  Best of all, Kevin Todaeschi agreed to edit and print a new edition of Harmon’s biography if Edgar Cayce, “A Seer out of Season,” and asked June to write a new introduction for it.


.  Her CD “Soul Soundings:
Treasured Piano Classics” is available from her at
She’ll have some to sell at the Forum, too.


The program starts at 7:30 P.M. and runs until 9:45

It is hosted by the A.R.E and is free and open to the public

and is located at A.R.E. Visitors Center, Located on 67th St.
