Happy New Year! This is my update for January 2017 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:

AFFIRMATION FOR JANUARY

In seeking to magnify Thy Name, Thy Glory, through that Thou dost make manifest in me, O lord, be Thou the Guide, and – day by day, as the opportunity is given – let my hands, my mind, my body, do that Thou wouldst have me do as Thine own in the earth; for, as I manifest, may Thy glory become known to those through the love, the promises, Thou hast made in Thy Son. (262-49)

ATLANTIC UNIVERSITY

"Enrolling in my first Atlantic University course at the age of 60, it was my desire to learn, to be inspired, and to study topics not found in traditional universities. The knowledge gained from my studies at Atlantic University has opened doors and given me opportunities to apply my learning far beyond my imagination."—Suzanne Wallace, Class of 2014


We have exciting news regarding new additions and familiar faces returning to the faculty. Scott Sparrow, EdD, renowned dreams expert and Cayce enthusiast has returned to the faculty. Henry Reed, PhD, has become Professor Emeritus at Atlantic University, where he mentors students in the final, culminating projects. We have also brought on a new faculty member, a soon-to-be doctoral graduate of the University of West Georgia in Transpersonal Psychology, Nick Atlas, PhD(c). We're very exciting for the students to get to work with these great faculty members.


Atlantic University offers programs in Transpersonal Psychology, Mindful Leadership, Spiritual Mentoring, Regression Hypnosis, and Lifelong Learning. Take a leap just like Suzanne did and learn more about beginning your degree or certificate. www.AtlanticUniv.edu | info@AtlanticUniv.edu | 1-800-428-1512

CAYCE/REILLY SCHOOL OF MASSAGE

2017 marks the 30th Anniversary of the Cayce/Reilly School, and we are planning a lovely celebration in honor of this special milestone in October. In the months leading up to that time, we are donating 30 massages in our Student Clinic to active duty and retired military service men and women and/or their spouses – one way to share our service for their service!


We are now accepting applications for the next massage class starting February 17, 2017. Spaces are limited – apply online today and become part of a new era in holistic healthcare – your journey starts here – www.caycereilly.edu.

The A.R.E. HEALTH CENTER AND SPA now has a new therapy available!

The Cayce Salt Scrub is taken directly from the health readings and will stimulate and invigorate the body. The sea salt scrub improves circulation and leaves your skin fresh and smooth. The readings advise following a steam or massage with the scrub. For more information call us at 757-457-7202, visit our website at www.AREhealth.org, and explore readings #464, #1073, and #1678.

“ASK EDGAR”

We have added a new category to our blog called “Ask Edgar”! Though Edgar Cayce died in 1945, he left us a legacy of 14,306 readings covering an astonishing 10,000 topics in about 24 million words! Send your question to AskEdgar@edgarcayce.org, and a staff or volunteer will mine the readings database for an answer. Though we can't promise that all questions will be answered, you can check our Ask Edgar blog category for a response to your or similar questions. http://www.edgarcayce.org/about-us/blog/blog-categories/ask-edgar
