“We will return!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2014

We visited (unfortunately) on a day they were holding a conference and a couple of days before their grand opening for their renovated facility. So it was not a good day to take part in their normal daily offerings. But their book store is first rate and we spent at least an hour there exploring. We also were impressed by their metaphysical lending library and conference schedule.

The meeting were very good and touring the facility was amazing. Edgar Cayce was from my hometown so it was interesting to learn more about his life. The spa was wonderful!!!

“Holistic pampering....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2014

Every year, I take a day from the sun and beach and head to the Edgar Cayce Center. I love the different method of massage they use and the facials with clay work better with my skin. The gift shop has something for everyone and if you are lucky, they are having a guest speaker!

“An interesting stop, for sure”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2014

We decided to visit this center, as my dad had read up on Edgar Cayce and found him to be an interesting man. Admission is free and it's near the beach, so while recently visiting my parents who live in Va. Beach, we decided to go.

The main building has three floors & was interesting with a library, reflection/meditation room & gift shop. Outside, there was a meditation garden, which was small & unremarkable. There was another area with a labyrinth, which was under construction. Another building that housed a spa is also there, but we did not visit.

I would recommend visiting & might return another time, but don't think it will be in the immediate future.
