The Edgar Cayce Foundation shelving project is now complete! The archive has been fitted with powder-coated, archival quality mobile shelving that protects the materials from deterioration and adds a substantial amount of storage space. This project contributes to an optimal preservation environment, complementing the fire suppression and climate control systems. Now the E.C.F. staff will be focusing on cataloging the rest of the collection and embarking upon a major digitization effort. Thank you donors!

“Inspire All Who Enter Here.” Our Virginia Beach Visitor Center is the first impression for thousands of visiting seekers every year. Until recently, it has not been updated since it was built in 1975. In the same way people are uplifted by the Cayce material, we all want them to be inspired when they finally arrive here at A.R.E. Headquarters. Soon they will be!

I’m thrilled to announce a Matching Gift Fund of $150,000 for the Visitor Center Renovation Project! This fund will match your donation of $200-999 dollar-for-dollar! We’ll match your $1,000-9,999 at a rate of 2-to-1 ($1,000 becomes $3,000). And we can match your donation of $10,000 or more at 3-to-1! To donate, click here and specify Visitor Center Renovations from the drop-down menu. If you’re not into buildings and want to support our mission, you can donate today to our Source Fund. Support the Cayce Work and be part of something larger than yourself.


Speaking of renovations, on August 12 we began installation of the new elevator in the Visitor Center. Modifications to the elevator include a new, modern cab interior with updated lighting, doors, and wall coverings, as well as an all-new control panel. Installation is expected to take four weeks during which time there will be no elevator service in the Visitor Center; but at least visitors no longer have to worry about getting stuck in the elevator again! Thanks to all donors who made this happen! Stay tuned for pictures of the new elevator in an upcoming issue of Venture Inward.

A.R.E. Camp is resting after the completion of another beautiful summer! During our last program of the summer, Campers at the Adult Retreat spent the week dreaming big. Our Adult Retreat was led by Mark Thurston, who guided our campers through a series of exercises and workshops based on bringing hope to a troubled world by using the Cayce work as a beacon of light. This week was made extra special by the fact that this year marked the 50th anniversary of the Adult Retreat! We are already looking forward to creating more magical memories in the A.R.E. Camp Valley next year! Stay tuned for the 2020 schedule and program offerings coming soon to


Thank you to all the members who attended our A.R.E. 88th Members Congress—it was one big Sharing Group! And an extra thank you to those who served by participating in our Membership Sharing Groups! Attendees gathered to share future-oriented suggestions to both increase the amount of new members and engage existing members. Helpful suggestions included various types of social media outreach, tweaks to existing efforts, networking with specific organizations, and much, much more. We received feedback (again this year) that it was “the best Congress ever!”
