    1 thought on “There is a River: The Story of Edgar Cayce

    1. When my generation, born in the latter 1940s, somehow blew our minds by the 1960s and challenged some of our parents' ideas about civil rights, war, religion, education, and even medicine, the books and astonishing insights of somebody named Edgar Cayce were just another among many new possibilities for us to discover. The bookstores and the streets were exploding with marches and ideas, music, art, cosmic consciousness for peace and love. It was a wonderful and heady and terrible time of assass [...]

    2. This book has helped me through a difficult period. The extent and pace of change in my life has overwhelmed me as I prepare to enter a new career and thus a new way of living. Money and charity have pulled from opposite ends of my soul throughout my life and finally, I think I found the line of work I am meant to do. Edgar Cayce's story is one of an ordinary man who, through some stroke of predestination, spoke about extraordinary mysteries while in a sleeping trance. In an era where frauds lik [...]

    3. Fascinating. Edgar Cayce had a gift which he used to alleviate suffering and restore health in thousands of people. A devout Christian, not educated in medicine, he had the ability to make contact, through his subconscious, with an articulate source of healing knowledge. The details, medical terminology, and results were overseen and approved by learned doctors of the day. “The Readings”, which could be done from any distance as long as the name and address of the person was given, treated t [...]

    4. I'll bet there are a lot of Christians out there who reject the idea of reincarnation or any other type of alternative afterlife theories with the idea that it's counter to the all mighty Bible. Those people need to read about Edgar Cayce, who found a way to align his Christian faith with the physical experiences he could not deny.I won't try any harder to sell this idea, but if you'll take your head out of the sand and accept that maybe, just maybe something might be true that wasn't written 20 [...]

    5. Deep. Not done yet though. 7/11Left me feeling as if I were needing a more diverse explanation of his readings. 7/22Very interesting start for me though.

    6. I am not sure if this is the same edition I read. I loved this book. Edgar Cayce's story confirmed so much of what I already believed.

    7. Edgar Cayce is often portrayed with myth and wonder when he is mentioned in books and on various Television specials. That he could fall asleep and diagnose a person of all their ailments, recommending treatments, and read past lives is a remarkable thing. That science couldn't debunk him is something else entirely. I first heard of Cayce, as I did for most of the remarkable phenomena that amazes me, through Unsolved Mysteries. Hosted by Robert Stack, the show delved into various crimes, people [...]

    8. took a while to get good, but once it did it was very interesting. it was sort of similar to the books of another psychic, carl jung (particularly 'memories, dreams, reflections'). my only complain was that i wished the author would have focused a little more on the readings edgar cayce gave on the nature of reality and the evolution of the soul, rather than diagnosing medical conditions. very interesting regardless.

    9. The complete biography of Edgar Cayce covers not only his fascinating life and the phenomenal information that came through his psychic readings, but it also provides hope to anyone suffering from illness or despair of heart and spirit.

    10. SUBJECTIVE READER REVIEW WITH PLOT SPOILERS I will openly state that, other than the Holy Bible, this book has transformed my understanding of our human universe more than any other. Without a doubt, the most compelling and indispensable read anyone can imagine. Back in 1993, we were paying for having won the Cold War by enduring the very painful base closure and realignment process--the peace dividend. At the time I performed a very challenging, important and self-fulfilling job in the Charlest [...]

    11. I found this an engrossing biography, although it might be more accurately termed a hagiography. The reading of this book also introduced me to De Puysegur who, in the late eighteenth century, was able to induce a sleeping trance in a person by the name of Victor Race who could then diagnose physical ailments in the same way that Edgar Cayce could. By the early nineteenth century, many individuals emerged all over Europe who could provide trance diagnoses and the phenomenon came to be called "so [...]

    12. This is an interesting story of a man who many thought had powers to see into a person's soul or mind. He gave advice regarding health that many said healed opr helped them with serious problems. He made some other prognostications that are also interesting. While I am not a believer in such site, there seems to be evidence that this person was very sensitive to some sort of vibes sent out be individuals.

    13. It was the first time I heard the words past lives and reincarnation. I had been calling them my other lives but didn't know there were words for them.Bless my Aunt Edna who gave me this book to read when I was 9.

    14. Awesome readCouldn't put the Book down! Amazing account of an even more amazing man. Edgar Cayce was a dream come true for the ill. We need more like him today.

    15. This was a very good book. I learned that so many concepts that we consider "new"have been around for almost 100 years.

    16. This story is interesting and peculiar. The writing itself is quite dated as it was written in the 1930s. Worth a read.

    17. I had heard of Edgar Cayce before, mainly because I shelved so many books by or about him in my years as a bookseller. It was only recently, though, as I was browsing through one of the Stranger than books by the late Frank Edwards that I came across a brief biography of Edgar Cayce and learned more about his mysterious diagnoses given while unconscious. I remembered that I had this book, one of the Time-Life Collector's Library of the Unknown reprints, on my shelf and so I dug in.For the most p [...]

    18. I liked this book except I found at times it was confusing or in some areas it was too vague, or too dry. Perhaps because the book was originally published in 1942, that was the style of the day. Today, perhaps in our expectations, we request a faster, smoother read.However, I did learn a lot about Edgar Cayce, who was born March 18, 1877. As a little boy in a small town in Kentucky, Cayce requested a copy of the Bible so he could read it. His fascination of the Bible at such a young age, made h [...]

    19. Edgar Cayce (1877-1945) suffered severe laryngitis which doctors couldn’t heal. As hypnotists were a current fad, he tried two and was able to speak normally but only while under hypnosis, but the third asked Cayce, while hypnotised how he could be cured and he answered, suggesting increasing blood flow which he did, and he was essentially cured. In due course, he learned to hypnotise himself and give readings for correspondents which were recorded by a secretary.As his fame grew, he was asked [...]

    20. Full disclosure: I am a member of the A. R. E. (the Association for Research and Enlightenment, the Edgar Cayce foundation in Virginia Beach). I have long been interested in Edgar Cayce and his unusual life and work. I have read a lot about "the sleeping prophet," but this is the most detailed account I have come across and the only full biography written by someone who knew Cayce and interviewed him extensively. Cayce was a man with an extraordinary gift that he himself did not understand and s [...]

    21. Absolutely amazing book!This is a wonderful-sometimes complicated-yet very interesting biography. When he was under auto-hypnosis (with induction later on by his wife - because he was taken advantage of prior to this) he could diagnose, and lay out a treatment plan for people in his office, or even around the world. Although while conscious this did amaze him, because he doesn't have a knowledge base for this. One time when under "autohypnosis" when asked the source of his knowledge " 'Edgar Cay [...]

    22. This book was written by a college friend of Cayce's son shortly after Edgar's death in 1945. It was written almost as a narrative more than a biography in a story fashion. I preferred the biography of Cayce more than this book, but it is written my someone who had closer connection possibly.Two figures in history have always fascinated me Edgar Cayce and Tesla. Both of these men seemed to be tapping into some extrasensorial power that we only have no clues to. Cayce would tell you it was from a [...]

    23. I had heard the name Edgar Cayce in relation to psychic powers before I read this book, but I had not known much more than that. I very much enjoyed the novel-like style of writing the author employed in writing this biography, as it made it a quick and easy read.Edgar Cayce's story is quite fascinating. I am a pretty fluffy new-age type, but clairvoyance always seems a bit, well, too much even for me. I guess I have seen too many people channeling Egyptians who lived 5,000 years ago (for a love [...]

    24. This is a review of the audio CDs. Thomas Sugrue knew Edgar Cayce, his family and associates intimately and wrote There is a River in the 1940s. This is no dreary summary or chronological review of his life. It follows Cayce from childhood to the end of his life with sympathy, feeling and forthrightness. Much of the dialogue has obviously been surmised but makes the book come vividly alive. Cayce's life was inspirational but also tragic in many respects. His life and work has been trivialized, r [...]

    25. This is an engaging and beautifully told story of Edgar Cayce who had an unusual gift: once he put him self to sleep, he could diagnose patients' ailments and instruct others on what methods to use to cure them. Never educated in any form of medicine, when he awoke he had no knowledge of what he had said. But, as hard as it is to imagine, if the patient followed his instructions, the ailments were healed. I learned about this book via a lecture given by Sally Fallon at the E F Schumacker society [...]

    26. A very engaging and fascinating biography of a man who used his psychic powers to help people who suffered from illnesses. The book takes you on a journey of when and how Edgar Caye realized he had a special gift, the obstacles he faced because of it and how he used it throughout his life. With no medical knowledge, he was able to diagnose an illness and prescribe its treatment all while he was in a trance. While in one of his trances, he reveals the idea of reincarnation - an idea that he strug [...]

    27. Not Completely sure if this is the book I read or not. The one I read is a biorgraphy of Edgar Casey his life and his experience as a clairavoyant plus some case studies of his readings at the end. I thought this book would be hokey and mostly about the "cures" and miracles Edgar Performed but it was actually a good little biography. I enjoyed the characters of his life and it gave me a insight into life in the united states between 1919 and 1945. I was delighted with the matter of fact not prea [...]
