AFFIRMATION FOR APRIL
Create in me a pure heart, O God. Open Thou my heart to the faith Thou hast implanted in all that seek Thy face. Help Thou mine unbelief in my God, in my neighbor, in myself.
-- Edgar Cayce reading 262-13
This is my update for April 2020 to A.R.E. members and friends who are interested in the new and exciting trends occurring within Edgar Cayce’s A.R.E., Atlantic University, the Cayce/Reilly School of Massage, and the Edgar Cayce Foundation. A number of exciting things are happening! Please share the following with your friends:
The Coronavirus has hit A.R.E. operations hard and has resulted in the closing of all face-to-face activities and programs. In addition to the cancelling of conferences, retreats and tours, all public areas of A.R.E. HQ have been closed, as well, including the Health Center & Spa, the Bookstore, the Visitor Center, the Library, and the Conference Center. In addition to the closings, 37 staff positions have been furloughed or laid off and another dozen employees have taken voluntary pay reductions. Thankfully, A.R.E. Members, the Board of Trustees, former Board members and the staff have all helped to stabilize the organization during this time of great challenge. Over the last month, in fact, nearly 500 of you have donated over $500,000 to our Crisis Relief Fund! Thank you very much! You have really made all the difference. We have also applied for some SBA (Small Business Administration) support as outlined in the CARES Act in hopes we’ll be able to rehire much of our furloughed staff and reopen before our scheduled June Member Congress. Keep us in your prayers. If you haven’t yet had the chance to make your donation to help the organization, you can do it now by visiting: DONATE.
CAYCE/REILLY® SCHOOL OF MASSAGE
The Cayce/Reilly School of Massage is open, with all classes shifted to a video conference/online classroom system. Applications for the June semester are already coming in. The June semester will begin on schedule using the video conference/online classroom system. As the use of massage grows, so do the reasons for people seeking massage therapy. More and more people are recognizing massage as an important element in overall health and wellness and an effective way to relieve stress, manage pain, and treat injuries. The Cayce/Reilly Massage blends three different techniques: Swedish, Osteopathic, and Neuropathic. The staff and faculty are dedicated to providing a holistic educational environment, preparing students for a rewarding career in the health care industry. Contact the school for more information about the June semester.

The Spring 2020 semester at Atlantic University began last week with full classes. With the world in a standstill and everyone moving their business online, the University was positioned to move ahead with business as normal because of the online nature of the school. Students enrolled and began classes without any interruption to the program or curriculum. This semester, the university received 89 enrollments and admitted 17 new students. The university is thriving, and the forecast shows that the Summer semester will be just as robust. Choose the program that's right for you!
