AFFIRMATION FOR JANUARY
Not my will but Thine, O Lord, be done in me and through me. Let me ever be a channel of blessings, today, now, to those that I contact in every way. Let my going in, my coming out be in accord with that Thou would have me do, and as the call comes, “Here am I, send me, use me.”
-- Edgar Cayce reading 262-3

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 of the highest standards, preparing students for a rewarding career in the healthcare industry.
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 OFFICE OF PHILANTHROPY
Richard Copeland’s Christmas Gift. Over 50 years ago, Richard Copeland invested a few thousand dollars in some property in DeLand, FL. Through the years he worked hard to maintain its lakeside beauty but a few years ago Richard – who lives on Pine Island, FL, 240 miles away – came to realize that he wouldn’t end up using it in ways he had envisioned. What should he do? Instead of selling the land – now valued at more than $350,000 – Richard decided to donate it to the A.R.E. What a Christmas gift he has given us!
As a longtime member and donor, Richard understands the need to support the ongoing work of the A.R.E., so is directing $100,000 of this gift to the Source Fund and another $50,000 to the Hugh Lynn Cayce Endowment which generates funds annually in perpetuity for that same purpose. He also designated nearly $100,000 to the operations of our Prison Outreach program and another $50,000 to the Copeland Endowment which supports that same program annually, in perpetuity! The remaining $50,000 will go to pay for the new entrance of our Visitor Center when we commence those renovations next year. Thank you, Richard! Your donation makes a world of difference.
If you have appreciated real estate, stock, or other items you might like to donate to the Cayce Work, please contact our Director of Philanthropy, Patrick Belisle, to see how your gift can benefit you as well as A.R.E. firstname.lastname@example.org or 434-906-0803.
Update on the 2019 Christmas Gift Match. We made it! Thanks to you and your donations we raised over $300,000 in December. Your response to the “Christmas Gift Match” was overwhelming. We are grateful for your financial commitment to this life-changing organization!
