Banyen's Description: 

The Essential Edgar Cayce is a complete guide to the work of the remarkable 20th-entury seer Edgar Cayce (1877–1945), featuring Cayce’s most intriguing and influential readings, and a biographical introduction to his life.

Sometimes called “The Sleeping Prophet,” Edgar Cayce was prone to pick up taglines that reflected the sensationalistic side of his work rather than its real depth and meaning. The core of his life’s work was actually being an intuitive healer and Christian mystic.

More than a hundred books have been written about his teachings and his life story. Yet no book until now has combined insightful commentary with lengthy, verbatim selections of the full range of his contribution to holistic healing, practical spirituality, and the psychology of the soul.

The Essential Edgar Cayce gives the reader an understanding of each major area in which Cayce helped pioneer the modern holistic living movement, as well as the contemporary popular approach to spirituality that weaves together the best of Eastern and Western religious traditions. The book’s substantial introduction frames Cayce and his life’s work, and is followed by eight topical sections in which commentaries by Mark Thurston guide the reader through some of the seer’s most significant readings.

Here is a truly integral portrait of the life and work of one of the 20th century’s most fascinating spiritual figures.

“Unquestionably the best general introduction to the teachings of this phenomenal American seer, healer, and philosopher.” —Jacob Needleman

“Edgar Cayce’s trance readings have inspired a vast literature… The Essential Edgar Cayce is the best available introduction to the readings, compiled and illuminated with commentary by the leading scholar on Cayce.” —K. Paul Johnson, author of Edgar Cayce in Context

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Publisher’s Description: 

"""Edgar Cayce’s trance readings have inspired a vast literature, much of it shallow and ephemeral, focused on the most sensationalistic aspects of the seer’s work. What of serious and lasting value can be found in the voluminous Cayce readings? No one is better qualified to answer this question than Mark Thurston. . . . The best available introduction to the readings, compiled and illuminated with commentary by the leading scholar on Cayce."" - K. Paul Johnson, author of Edgar Cayce in Context."
