Welcome to Arizona A.R.E. —
Edgar Cayce’s Association for Research & Enlightenment in Arizona
In materiality we find some advance faster, some grow stronger, some become weaklings. Until there is redemption through the acceptance of the law (or love of God, as manifested through the Channel or the Way), there can be little or no development in a material or spiritual plane. But all must pass under the rod, even as He–who entered into materiality.
Creating Your Own Destiny with Judith Stevens, John Schroeder, and Steve Bobbitt in the Phoenix area
Using Edgar Cayce’s Time-Tested Methods for Spiritual Growth
“. . . we will come to know ourselves to be ourselves, yet one with and part of the whole . . .
that is the purpose, that is the cause, of Being.”
A Search for God, Book II
The life-changing lessons in the A Search for God material, considered by many to be Edgar Cayce’s greatest legacy, were given in response to a small group of people interested in Cayce’s psychic gift. They asked him for a reading on how they too might help bring light and truth to a waiting world. So began a series of readings on spiritual laws and their application—twelve simple yet challenging steps to spiritual advancement—now studied by tens of thousands of people all over the world.
Lead by long-time Cayce student and teacher Judith Stevens, along with special guests John Schroeder, and Steve Bobbitt, you will explore core teachings from this great work and also from the vast library of Edgar Cayce’s wisdom as you learn to apply these concepts to your daily life to accelerate your own spiritual awakening. You will find these insights to be an ever-helpful source for continued growth, inner peace, and healing as you learn to let go of past patterns and form new habits and ideals. You’ll experience special meditations, gentle stretches that can help energize the body, and hands-on activities to help you work toward your spiritual goals.
During this special two-day program, you will
- Practice and apply spiritual techniques and concepts in a supportive, nurturing environment
- Understand the role of acceptance, patience, and service to your life’s purpose
- Learn to follow God’s perfect plan to “Find your way out”
- Unite spirit, mind, and body to live a more holistic life
- Extend unconditional love and forgiveness to yourself and others
Edgar Cayce’s son, Hugh Lynn Cayce, told Judith that the topics from this program were in his opinion the “most important chapters” from the A Search for God readings and contained life-changing information, that if applied, held the potential for unflinching self-transformation and spiritual advancement.
Many people find that small group work helps enhance and accelerate their spiritual growth process, but you don’t need to be in a study group to benefit from these soul expanding lessons.

John has a BA in finance and an MBA in marketing. He retired in 2011 as executive director of Unity of Phoenix and now devotes his time to writing and teaching.
Steve Bobbitt was introduced to Edgar Cayce via his mother in the 1970s. His spiritual education advanced in the 1980s when his college English professor introduced him to the power of metaphysics, creative visualization, and the mystery schools of ancient Egypt. These lessons dovetailed and set the foundation for what Steve would later learn via the Edgar Cayce readings. Steve’s formal education is a BS in finance and a MBA. He is a self-employed consultant and financial educator specializing in the stock and futures markets. Steve is a regular guest on Internet-based Power Trading Radio and is a contributor to Futures Magazine.
