Patrick Belisle is the director of the Association for Research and Enlightenment (A.R.E.) Office of Development.
Raised Catholic, he has been a spiritual seeker since age 14 when he led his church’s youth Bible study group, going on to study theology with Benedictine monks in college.
He is a longtime student of the Edgar Cayce material.
Before arriving at the A.R.E, he spent four years testing Universal Laws while traveling around the world and North America.
He lived with Buddhist monks in Thailand, Catholic monks in Minnesota, and had a transformative mystical experience at an ashram in India.
Patrick believes strongly in the power of Love and has officiated the weddings of more than 30 couples in his role as Celebrant over the past 10 years and has led many marriage-preparation workshops in his role as an ordained clergyperson for the Church of Spiritual Humanism.
He has been teaching meditation and dream work to young people at A.R.E. Camp for 15 years and has been a speaker around the U.S. on subjects such as Psychic Experiences, the Past Lives of Jesus, and Serving with Spirit.
When he is not offering himself in service to others or wandering the world, his primary duties are raising money for Edgar Cayce’s A.R.E. in Virginia Beach.
His presentations blend vibrant humor with deep substance as he aims to help others find their own path through joyful service.
