The latest release from A.R.E. Press, Edgar Cayce and the Kabbalah: A Resource for Soulful Living by John Van Auken, is the first of its kind in addressing wisdom from the psychic readings of Edgar Cayce as it relates to the spiritual teachings of the Kabbalah. Van Auken combines his love of Kabbalah with his 40 years of studying the Cayce readings to guide readers on a mind-expanding journey through creation and the higher levels of consciousness. Van Auken’s easy writing style helps to shed light on the most complicated concepts in Kabbalah, making it easier to grasp the five divisions of being, the four planes of existence, the seven heavens, the 10 emanations, and the 22 channels of the Infinite Creative Consciousness. He also teaches how readers can expand their minds to perceive these realms, to journey through them, and as he writes, “to remain sane, healthy, and active in our present life.”
John Van Auken is an internationally renowned speaker, longtime staff member, and current director at Edgar Cayce’s A.R.E. A popular leader of A.R.E.’s life-changing tours to Egypt and other sacred sites, he is also the author of several best-selling books, including Edgar Cayce on the Revelation, Toward a Deeper Meditation, and Ancient Egyptian Mysticism. In addition he is a regular contributor to Venture Inward magazine and the Venture Inward Newsletter. His extensive knowledge of the Cayce readings, the Bible, world religions, Gnosticism, and ancient Egyptian mysticism is combined with years of experience as a teacher and meditation retreat leader, to bring a deeper understanding of this ancient mystical tradition that enhances the understanding and skill of today’s spiritual seeker.
Van Auken will present a program on the Kabbalah March 12-13 at A.R.E. Headquarters (details available at EdgarCayce.org/conferences), and his DVD on the subject will be available soon at ARECatalog.com.
Edgar Cayce founded the non-profit Association for Research and Enlightenment (A.R.E.) in 1931, to explore spirituality, holistic health, intuition, dream interpretation, psychic development, reincarnation, and ancient mysteries-all subjects that frequently came up in the more than 14,000 documented psychic readings given by Cayce, who died in 1945. A.R.E.’s publishing arm, A.R.E. Press, has been publishing books since 1931 as well, with the mission of furthering the work of the A.R.E. by publishing books, DVDs, and CDs to support the organization’s goal of helping people change their lives for the better. In 2009, A.R.E. Press launched its second imprint, 4th Dimension Press. While A.R.E. Press features topics related to the work of Edgar Cayce in the fields of spirituality, intuition, psychic abilities, ancient mysteries, philosophy, comparative religious studies, personal and spiritual development, and holistic health, 4th Dimension Press allows us to take our publishing efforts further with like-minded and expansive explorations into the mysteries and spirituality of our existence.
