NEW Event Special Instructions

 Special Instructions: Please print for your records.


Thank you for registering for our Mid-South Retreat November 9th – 11th, 2018, Edgar Cayce’s Spirituality for Busy People featuring Mark Thurston, Ph.D.


The workshop will be held at Montgomery Bell State Park, Highway 70 Dickson, Tn. When checking into the inn they will ask EVERYONE who has brought their car for a vehicle license tag number so be sure to have that information with you so you don’t have to go back to your car to get it. They will also ask to see your driver’s license. This is something new to the check–in process so wanted you to be aware.


Check-in begins at 4:00 pm. The program begins promptly at 7:30 pm on Friday. Please give yourself time to park and check-in before the program starts.  We are expecting a large audience; come early for the best seats.


Meals are available at the Inn; plus there are many wonderful restaurants available in friendly Dickson.


Dress casually in layers so you can adjust to changes in the temperature as needed.


Cayce books and products will be on sale on site.
