Volunteer Appreciation & Benefits

Hugh Lynn Cayce (1907-1982) was the eldest son of Edgar Cayce. He turned the A.R.E. into an organization of international renown and developed widespread recognition and acceptance of subjects such as psychical research, dream analysis, meditation, and spiritual development.

Years ago Hugh Lynn Cayce wrote this beautiful letter to our volunteers, expressing a timeless truth that is just as relevant today--view or download Hugh Lynn's, Volunteers Are Our Backbone (PDF).
