Lively Discussion about Metaphysical Insight

Ron Hounsell

Edgar Cayce, “the sleeping prophet,” founded the Association for Research and Enlightenment (A.R.E.) 80 years ago to answer the question of where intuitive knowledge comes from. A panel discussion on the topic will be held at 7:30 p.m., January 25, at the Edgar Cayce Holistic Center, in Des Plaines.

Panel members include Brian Kraichely (School of Metaphysics, Palatine), Zubin Sherring (Chicago Clairvoyant Center) and Ron Hounsell (A.R.E.). Each panelist will draw upon their own experiences in using intuitive guidance and the group will discuss various aspects of intuitive knowledge and take questions from the audience.

Kraichely has studied and led work at the School of Metaphysics for years and is deep into the training required to be able to deliver what is referred to as Intuitive Reports, a process with some similarities to Cayce’s Readings.

Sherring has extensive training and teaching experience using clairvoyant skills. In her private practice, she focuses on accessing the knowledge within, rather than drawing on an external source.

Hounsell has studied portions of the more than 14,000 readings and ancillary documents that were created by Cayce’s work.

Admission is $30 ($25 for A.R.E. members). Location: 259 E. Central Rd. To register, call 847-299-6535 or email
