The Association for Research and Enlightenment (A.R.E.), also known as Edgar Cayce's A.R.E., was founded by Edgar Cayce (1877–1945) in 1931 to research and explore subjects such as holistic health, ancient mysteries, personal spirituality, dreams and dream interpretation, intuition, philosophy and reincarnation. A.R.E.'s stated mission is to help people change their lives for the better through the ideas and information found in the Edgar Cayce readings. Its international headquarters is in Virginia Beach, Virginia, with a regional office in Houston, Texas. There are also Edgar Cayce Centers in 37 countries and individual members in more than 70 countries. A.R.E. runs conferences, retreats and other educational activities, and publishes books relating to Edgar Cayce and his teachings under the imprints of A.R.E. Press and 4th Dimension Press. The A.R.E. also publishes a quarterly member magazine, Venture Inward. It maintains an affiliation with Atlantic University, and runs a Health Center and Day Spa at its Virginia Beach headquarters along with the Cayce/Reilly School of Massage.
