Edgar Cayce Hometown Seminar

edgar cayceHOPKINSVILLE, KY (3/9/12) – The 20th Annual Edgar Cayce Hometown Seminar is set for March 16 & 17 at the Pennyroyal Area Museum. The event celebrates the life and work of the Hopkinsville native who has been called the “sleeping prophet.”

Janet Bravard is Education Curator for the museum. She says Cayce’s legacy draws people to attend the event to learn more about this man who would go into a self-induced unconscious state. “From this unconscious state, he would reveal bits of holistic living, health and wellness, spirituality, and from that he just became known as the most documented psychic of the 20th century,” says Bravard.

The event kicks off Friday, March 16 with registration at 7 p.m. Wayne Goolsby will conduct the first session called “Cayce’s Apocalypse” in which Cayce revealed some information pertaining to the year 2012. The evening will conclude with a “Pit” tournament which is a game that Edgar Cayce invented.

Saturday, March 17 will begin with refreshments following by a presentation from Christian County Historian William Turner. He will give an overview of “Edgar Cayce’s Hopkinsville.” Carol Baraff is with the Association for Research and Enlightenment, an organization founded by Cayce in 1931 in Virginia Beach, Virginia. Baraff will be discussing issues from her book which explains what Cayce had to say about everyday health.

The afternoon session offers two options. One group will be going on a van tour of Edgar Cayce’s hometown sites. Bravard says space is limited for the tour and she encourages people to register quickly for this portion of the seminar. The remaining attendees will remain at the museum for several sessions. Katie Williams will present information on products made from natural ingredients. There will be a yoga session with Gail Gibson. Tony Kirves will explore the art of photography in Cayce’s day since that was Cayce’s profession.

Following dinner, the evening session will begin with a talk about dreams conducted by Lois Luckett. She says Cayce encouraged people to “view dreaming as being in contact with the creative forces from which we gain helpful guidance and information.” The evening will conclude with another presentation by Carol Baraff called “Prescription for Healthy Living.”

Full registration for the seminar is $110, but the van tour is an additional $40. Bravard says partial registration is available for people wanting to attend specific sessions only. She adds that museum members receive a 20% discount. Call 270-887-4270 or visit the Pennyroyal Area Museum facebook page for more information.
