There Is A River: the story of Edgar Cayce, by Thomas Sugrue
Just finished reading this. Read it 20 years ago, but didn’t remember anything from it for some reason. So it was like a whole new book. Loved it. Recommend it to everyone. A great biography.
The author had access to Cayce and his family from 1927 to 1941. He was a guest at their home from June 1939 to October 1941 and spent many summers with them at Virginia Beach, particularly those of 1929, 1930 and 1931. That helped make this such a rich story because he got to know Cayce slowly over time and see him in many contexts and many states of mind.
I think it is helpful to have a very vivid human picture of the man who had so much influence on wholistic healing and what might be called “new age.” Of course, none of it is really new. It is the very old brought back from the long-forgotten past and which helps pull us out of our amnesia.
I will be putting up Cayce’s validated birth chart soon along with a detailed summary bio of his life and key events. The entry will include material from Cayce’s own trance readings regarding his birth chart as well as interjections of more technical material for astrologers and students that I’m sure some will find enlightening.
