    A Psychic Fair happened to be going on when we decided to visit the Edgar Cayce A.R.E. Association. My wife picked up some nice gemstones from a vendor there. All in all, an interesting hour visit wit...  more »

    I LOVE being at Edgar Cayce's A.R.E. and in the meditation garden. As soon as I walk through the doors I feel an inner peace and calming of Spirit. I have met some pretty remarkable people while attending classes, Psychic Fairs, forums and graduations. The library has a vast array of books that have both helped me grow mindfully and spiritually. I am excited to visit again very soon.

    STAY AWAY from this place. It is nothing more than a new age cult. Google the founder you will find out all you need to know. The people here are like zombies and you just feel a sense of dread when on the property. Wanna see how a cult operates? Come on over!

    I just returned from attending a conference on Animal Communication at A.R.E in Virginia Beach and can't really say enough positive things about the entire experience. Visiting the A.R.E actually surpassed any expectations I had. There is so much to take advantage of here, you could spend days. They have conferences on a regular basis with enlightened speakers from around the globe--and if you can't make it to the conference they are often live streamed or you can view the conference afterwards online. The bookstore has one of the best selections on all books spiritual and metaphysical that you can image. The library on the second floor was astounding and contains all the original Cayce readings. There is a beautiful mediation room on the 3rd floor overlooking the ocean and there are free meditation classes held here most days. There are several movies, lectures and classes held every day for free-truly a wonderful public service. All the people I encountered my 3 days went out of their way to make you feel welcome--the energy was incredibly uplifting. The grounds are beautiful--there is a healing garden with a few water features that is incredibly peaceful. On the site of the original hospital, there is a spa which offers a wide variety of services, and a cafe "The Leaping Lizard" that offers delicious food. In front of the spa there is an amazing dolphin themed labyrinth that is also open to the public at any time. This whole facility is a tremendous gift to the people of Virginia Beach since there is so much you can take advantage of at no cost. I highly recommend it as a place to enlighten, uplift and soothe your spirit. Dr. Marina Quattrocchi

    I don't know exactly how to describe the experience of being there. It was very odd and if I didn't know better I would go as far as to say it is haunted. Or a gateway to joining a cult. No kidding. The outside grounds were disappointing, we wanted to walk through the "meditating garden" which is actually a home to SNAKES! There was a little sign of the warning, so that was off-putting. Inside the building, the people who worked here were also odd and just zoned out. I really can't quite put my finger on it, but I didn't feel good being there. Couldn't wait to get out. Bad energy and overall creepy I would not go back.

Where to stay in Virginia Beach

With over 10,000 hotel rooms, Virginia Beach offers comfortable and affordable accommodations for every type of traveler. Even with that many places to choose from, this popular resort area does get quite crowded during the height of the tourist season, so it is essential to reserve your lodgings well in advance. You can stay just steps from the Atlantic by booking your room at one of the city's luxury resort hotels. To stay near the water for less, consider a budget-friendly inn with an ocean view.
