There is a huge library that is second only to the Vatican, a holistic massage school and a place you can get massaged by professionals (or for a bit cheaper) the students. Really nice relaxing place

If you are at all interesting in holistic healing and the paranormal, this is a must see. Their lectures are informative. There is a book shop. The Spa is also an great place, but I find them a bit pricy for my pocketbook.

Growing up, my husband and I had both heard stories about Edgar Cayce and found them interesting and very well documented so when we visited Virginia we decided to stop in here. We're not really into the metaphysical stuff, but we still found it very interesting and their library very impressive. They also have a very well stocked bookstore that's open to the public.

Always has a fantastic bookstore, therapy dept where you can get a steam cabinet treatment and a massage whether or not you are a member. They treat you like Kings and queens there.
