AFFIRMATION FOR FEBRUARY
Father, as we seek to see and know Thy face, may we each, as individuals and as a group, come to know ourselves, even as we are known, that we – as lights in Thee – may give the better concept of Thy Spirit in this world
-- Edgar Cayce reading 262-5
This is my update for February 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:
TARSIA CENTER PROGRAMS – Upcoming Events
Dedicated to personal healing and the awakening of deeper spiritual consciousness in the world, the Tarsia Center cosponsors programs at the A.R.E. Health Center and Spa, Atlantic University and A.R.E. Upcoming events include the following:
Wellness Intensive – June 18-21, 2020
In conjunction with the A.R.E. Health Center and Spa, the Tarsia Center is sponsoring a Wellness Intensive beginning the Thursday before the annual Membership Congress. The program will end on Sunday, June 21, just prior to the Congress registration and picnic. This limited-registration event will focus on group work, Cayce therapies, inner processing, and energy medicine. In addition to group meals, dreamwork, massage, and personally selected Spa treatments, participants will take part in individual psychotherapy. Attendees will also experience a personal hypnotic regression designed to address past-life issues that may be hampering present healing. For more information on the Wellness Intensive, email the spa: Spa@edgarcayce.org, or contact the Spa Supervisor at (757)457-7106

Meditation Teacher Training (Certificate Course) begins on April 6, 2020. Applications due by March 23, 2020. This 12-week online course is divided into two sections. The first five weeks are designed to help you acquire knowledge of basic meditation methods and provide you with the time to practice the methods yourself. The next seven weeks are designed to help you acquire knowledge and application of more "advanced" methods, but also to help structure your personal methods of mentoring and teaching meditation. You will also continue to practice meditation and gain new knowledge of the field. The last half of the class will require lots of time management and organizational skills as you plan for mentoring and teaching meditation, write papers, and finally complete your practicum.

NEWS FROM THE EDGAR CAYCE FOUNDATION
Dr. Michael Davis, professor of History at Hampton University, will be speaking about Gladys Davis Turner as part of the Global Conference on Women and Gender held at Christopher Newport University on March 20, 2020 at 1:45 p.m. His presentation is entitled "A Voice of Insight: Gladys Davis Turner and the New Age, 1905-1986" and draws from his research in the E.C.F. archives. In his words, “I'm specifically arguing that Gladys (and Edgar, for that matter) should be a better-known figure in the history of American spirituality (like Harmon Bro, I tend to view Cayce as a spiritual figure rather than a medical figure) - and more generally that scholars should pay attention to secretaries, archivists, and other roles in chronicling and remembering traditionally filled by women.” Dr. Davis has been conducting research at E.C.F. for an upcoming scholarly work on Edgar Cayce.

EUROCONGRESS SEPTEMBER 2021 – Mark Your Calendars
Mark your calendars for the special EuroCongress being organized for September 2021 in Germany. The Congress is being planned in conjunction with the Edgar Cayce Center in Germany, and will take place in Mainz, a city founded on the left bank of the Rhine River by the Romans in the First Century AD.
The event will bring together members and Cayce enthusiasts from throughout Europe and include a contingent from the United States as part of an A.R.E. Tour program after the Congress. Both Kevin Todeschi and John Van Auken have committed to being part of the speaker lineup. Lectures will be in English, with German translation available. The program will take place at the IntercityHotel in Mainz for the September 24-26, 2021 EuroCongress. We are currently working on the speaker lineup for the program. The Tour is still in planning stages; individuals interested in notification as plans develop should contact A.R.E. Tours at tours@EdgarCayce.org.
Thank you – each of you – for all you do for this great Work!
