This is my update for July 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:


So what's the big news? We've changed the name of our program to Master of Arts in Transpersonal Psychology.

We have seen the tremendous benefits of the Master of Arts in Transpersonal Studies program on our students and graduates, for it truly is a life changing experience. At the same time, we have strived to properly express these benefits to the public at large. Additionally, the master's degree in Transpersonal Studies has not provided as tangible of a degree outcome as more traditional programs.

Camp - progress July2016

Matching Gift Fund for Dining Hall Still Available —

We’re Almost There! A committed group of Camp fans has put together a $40,000 Matching Gift Fund that will match your donation of $200 or more dollar-for-dollar AND they'll match donations of $1,000 or more at a rate of TWO-TO-ONE! Think of all of our happy campers… and please donate what you can. Thank you. Keep us in your prayers and consider making a donation.



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 this month, 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.


Our Psychic Fair returns this month on July 30! Come meet our brand new vendors, speakers, and readers and celebrate the return of some of our favorites! Our Super Summer Clearance sale is still going strong with discounts up to 50% OFF!

Thank you for all you continue to do for this great Work!
