Imagine being able to walk only a few feet out your door and find yourself on the peaceful shore of the lovely Chesapeake Bay, in Virginia Beach, Virginia. This was my good fortune, when I recently stayed at a generous friend’s great home, with its majestic water view, situated on the sands of this well-known bay. The Chesapeake Bay is the largest estuary in the United States. It lies off the Atlantic Ocean, surrounded by Maryland and Virginia. What a treat it was for me to enjoy this sanctuary, while in town to present my near-death experience lecture to the Virginia Beach Friends of IANDS (FOI), (International Asso. for Near-Death Studies), which meets monthly at Edgar Cayce’s famed A.R.E., (Association for Research & Enlightenment ).
Edgar Cayce has been called the “sleeping prophet,” the “father of holistic medicine,” and the most documented psychic of the 20th century. Be sure to check out this popular and thriving Virginia Beach Friends of IANDS chapter, as well as A.R.E., if you visit Virginia Beach. The “vibes” at A.R.E. are amazing, the day spa is out of this world (or so I am told!), and the library is legendary. Plus, there is a great book store & gift shop and a lovely top floor meditation hall with gorgeous stained glass, not to mention the water view. Ahhhh. The combo of relishing in fascinating near-death experience exchange, via warm kinship, and the offerings of A.R.E., can’t be beat for those who find such activities right up their mystical alley! Happy travels, for mind, body, and spirit!
Until next time… Martha
