“I like the atmosphere here”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

This place tells you about the history of Edgar Cayce. The people are dedicated to this center, they have an extensive store where you can purchase information about him and the center as well as other material on a wide varety of tpoics to enlighten your mind. I love the aromatherapy items that they have as well as the Chi items. This center also has a spa, but I have not used those facilty yet. The center offers free classes that discusses various topics that Cayce studied. This is a good place to visit for some mind stimulation while visiting the beach.

“Great School, great massages!”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

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

“Interesting grounds and bldg.”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

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.

“If the metaphysical is your thing, you'll love it. If not, it's still interesting.”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

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.
