Discovering Your Soul’s Purpose:


“The Edgar Cayce Way”

The first edition of this book came out in 1984,  based on one of Edgar Cayce’s prophetic readings “For, each soul enters with a mission…we all have a mission to perform.”

This first and second edition are written by Dr. Thurston, an educator and writer for the Association of Research and Enlightenment (A.R.E.)

About the Author

About Edgar Cayce and A.R.E.

This book is a journey through the order of events-or a step by step method that is used to reach your destination one step at a time.  You will find exercises and case studies to help you understand the concepts being presented throughout the book.  There is one thing that is a constant in this book and it is the belief in “God”.  This is the one and only thing I find off putting about the book.  (If you are bothered by this I urge you to mentally filter out the word and read the whole book anyway.)  I knew going into the first page that any book based on Cayce’s teachings would include his ideas about “God”.

I think this is one of the most important books of all time and I’m happy to see a second edition at a time when so many are searching for purpose.  Many of the books on this topic are “heavy” reads but this one is perfect for everyone.  In Discover Your Soul’s Purpose many theories developed by Cayce’s contemporaries are discussed in relation to his own ideas and this gives us a chance to understand how they are all similar but also different.  I have the greatest respect for Edgar Cayce and those who study his many teachings.

This book is published by TarcherPerigee and is available for pre-order now for June 20th.
