“The first lesson for six months should be One-One-One- One; Oneness of God, oneness of man's relation, oneness of force, oneness of time, oneness of purpose, Oneness in every effort-Oneness- Oneness!”
Edgar Cayce reading 900-429
Between our politics, our media, and even our own relationships, the world appears to be more divided than ever. But the Edgar Cayce readings and other enlightened worldviews give us a very different perspective – the world they describe is one full of hope and connection, to the point of oneness. For millennia, the mystics who have directly experienced the Divine tell us again and again: We are ONE. The Cayce readings turn this idea into reality and they give us clear guidance toward living in that Oneness.
In this lecture/workshop, Patrick Belisle will make these esoteric ideas practical and useful to you in your day-to-day life. You will experience a bit of that oneness and feel more connection, gain some compassionate understanding, and get a glimmer of hope for the future. Come heal some divisions; feel better. If this sounds appealing to you, come join us and help shift your perspective.
A spiritual world traveler who spent four years straight wandering North America and literally going around the world, Patrick has been a spiritual seeker since age 14 when he led his church’s youth Bible study group and went on to study theology with Benedictine monks in college. Since then, Patrick has lived with Buddhist monks in Thailand, taught meditation and dream work as an A.R.E. Camp counselor, and practiced hypnotherapy since 1999. He worked with Dr. Ian Stevenson’s group researching the nature of consciousness at the University of Virginia, has given dozens of lectures and workshops on Cayce-related topics, and is always a popular draw because of his ability to put these potentially mind-bending topics into understandable and useful forms. Patrick is an ordained clergyperson for the Church of Spiritual Humanism. When he is not offering himself in service to others or wandering the world, he is raising money for Edgar Cayce’s A.R.E. in Virginia Beach where he has worked as the Development Director since 2006. Patrick blends his joyful humor with deep substance to help others find meaning and inspiration.
