Carmen provided the group with a wealth of information about the 8th and 12th houses. I especially liked Carmen's format, using audio, video, lecture, and handouts to present the material, which was then followed by a set of thought-provoking questions for us to answer. The format invited lots of interaction among group members and made the class very interesting. Carmen also took the time to respond to each person's comments, providing additional astrological information and interpretations, and sharing many of her own personal experiences with the group related to the topic being discussed. This was an added bonus. S.V.

There were many things about the 8th and 12th house that I could relate to. This was a comfort to me that I could relate to these things and understand that they are planetary energies that can help me grow as a person. C.C.

I really liked the direct feedback I received from Carmen, the teacher. She made the material easy to understand. She was able relate the material directly to the student. L.M.H.

Before I started the course, I already knew that Carmen was an amazing astrologer, and I appreciated her willingness to share her own experiences and struggles both in readings and in her book and articles. This is the first time that I have participated in an eGroup, and I was struck by the quality of spiritual wisdom and understanding in the posts of group members. I had no idea that there would be such immediate honesty and acceptance, and so much profound spiritual insight in every post! Anonymous

What's an e-Group? 

Your A.R.E. eGroup will meet on an Internet discussion board. This discussion board has been created especially for A.R.E. by BulletinBoards.com, a secure Internet site that makes learning online interactive and easy. In Internet terms, your eGroup is called a "discussion board", a virtual meeting room where you will join with other like-minded people and your mentor,Carmen Turner-Schott, in an interactive discussion on past lives.

In the virtual meeting room, you will have access to the written and audio materials prepared for you by Carmen. Every Wednesday, Carmen will post a lesson along with exercises for you to practice during the week. Posting is very similar to sending an e-mail, except that all the e-mails are viewed within your virtual meeting room. You may post your thoughts, questions, and experiences on the site for Carmen and the other participants to read and respond to. In this way, everyone will benefit from one another's experiences and insights and the coaching offered by Carmen to individuals.

Once you register for your A.R.E. eGroup, we will send an e-mail from eGroups@edgarcayce.org detailing how to access and navigate our discussion board for the eGroup Explore the Mysteries of Your 8th and 12th Houses. Then, you're in! You will be able to visit your eGroup any time you desire. The meeting room is accessible 24 hours a day/ 7 days a week and you may participate at your convenience from anywhere in the world. There are no specified times that you have to be in the room. You decide when and how often you wish to participate.
