John Van Auken, M.A.
The International Metaphysical University is proud to offer this fully-integrated online college course, Kabbalah: The Enlightened Mind, from renowned author and researcher John Van Auken.
John Van Auken is the revered Director at the Edgar Cayce organization, the Association for Research and Enlightenment (A.R.E.) in Virginia Beach, Virginia U.S.A. He has been associated with the ARE since the late 1960s. He writes three monthly newsletters, “Ancient Mysteries,” “Personal Spirituality,” and “Living in the Light,” and is the author of more than a dozen books. His expertise is in mysticism, particularly Egyptian and Christian mysticism, and teaching meditation—from kundalini to his unique “passage in consciousness” technique. I practice the techniques I teach and have become a leader of retreats, workshops, and tours. His topics include spirituality, reincarnation, ancient mystical concepts and practices, rejuvenation of the body, dream work, meditation, prophecy, mysticism, and Edgar Cayce concepts. He has appeared on several television and radio programs, including the FOX show “Opening the Tomb Live from Egypt,” Modern Marvels’ “The Pyramids,” Religion Today, The Art Bell Show, Spiritual Alternatives, the Discovery Channel’s “Searching for Atlantis” and the History Channel’s “Digging for the Truth.” His tours are to sacred sites around the world. His speaking schedule and tour schedule are posted on his website.
