This is my update for August 2016 to A.R.E. members and friends who are interested in the new and exciting trends occurring within Edgar Cayce’s A.R.E. and Atlantic University. A number of exciting things are happening this month! Please share the following with your friends:
As we see the end our Summer 2016 semester there is a lot to look back on as milestones for the university. First, the accrediting agency for Atlantic University, the DEAC, approved our request to change the name of the flagship program from a Master of Arts in Transpersonal Studies to a Master of Arts in Transpersonal Psychology. This change has been met with nothing but positive feedback from students, graduates, staff, and the A.R.E. It is our hope that this change will attract even more students interested in field of transpersonal psychology.
Secondly, with the end of this semester, we will see the first cohort from the Master of Arts in Leadership Studies and the Mindful Leadership Graduate Certificate complete their first course; the Foundations of Leadership Studies was taught by Retired General Larry Welch. Happily, these students will begin their next semester September 5, and will have a few more new learners join them as the second semester for this new degree opens.
Lastly, we are happy to announce that all new and existing Atlantic University students will receive an @atlanticuniv.edu email address. Thank you Meagan Storey, AU’s Director of Advising and Assessment, as well as Tim Duckworth, IT Admin, for your hard work on this project! More information about A.U. is available at: www.AtlanticUniv.edu.

NEW WEBSITE DESIGN IS LIVE!
We are pleased to announce that the new design for our website was rolled out this week, and we invite you to come and take a look! Besides the beautiful modern design, the new website enables users from mobile and tablet devices (half of our site’s visitors and growing!) to view and use our website functions with ease. It’s never been so easy to access the information you want to know about events here at headquarters or near you, to find blog posts and radio shows that interest you, to make a quick donation, or to simply read topics and look at videos of your choice at EdgarCayce.org.
Some of the most exciting differences in our new website include the ability to: Search Our Blog by Topic and Key Words; Search Our Events by State, Speaker Name, Date Range; Search the Readings with an Improved Database in the New Member-Only Section.
We hope you enjoy navigating our new website for information and for opportunities to be involved with our work!
HELP US CELEBRATE A.R.E.’s MISSION FOR THE NEXT 85 YEARS
It’s the A.R.E’s mission to help people transform their lives for the better, just as you, yourself have experienced. Did you know that the programs you are so passionate about are funded, in very large part, by your donations? Yes. It takes $25,000 per day to keep our operations running smoothly: digitizing the circulating files, sending Cayce books to prisoners, planting an organic garden at A.R.E. Camp, and SO much more, every dollar makes a difference.
As we celebrate A.R.E.’s 85th Birthday, we are asking our members to consider joining the Golden Circle by making a donation of either $1,931 (the year we were founded) or a monthly donation of $85 or more. Being a member of the Golden Circle has special benefits like receiving unique gifts and event invitations throughout the year. Please know that we are grateful for whatever amount you contribute. Truly. Thanks for all you do to support this great work. http://www.edgarcayce.org/donate/make-a-donation
Thank you for all you continue to do for this great Work!
Ever the same, Kevin J. Todeschi Executive Director and CEO
