AFFIRMATION FOR JULY Lord, let me – my mind, my body, my soul – be at-one with Thee: that I – through Thy promises in Him, Thy Son – may know Thee more and more.

-- Edgar Cayce reading 262-88

This is my update for July 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:

TARSIA CENTER - EXCITING NEW SPIRITUAL MENTORSHIP PROGRAM!
Edgar Cayce’s A.R.E. and the Tarsia Center are pleased to announce a new 4-Month spiritual mentorship program. Mentored by longtime members and coaches, Eileen Malo and Lynn Sparrow Christy, this program will feature: 

  • A four-day “Virginia Beach retreat,” that will launch you on the module’s practice as you meet face-to-face with the program mentors and other participants.
  • Personalized, mentored growth that helps you apply the practice to both your personal history and what is actually going on in your life right now.
  • The power of a small group where each is committed to the others’ growth as well as his or her own. Personalized guidance to help you develop core skills, such as meditative approaches, the capacity for self observation, and effective group processing.
  • An emphasis on interaction, experiential exercises, coaching, and keeping personal disciplines
  • A “Certificate of Completion” for successfully working with the module.

The program, “Keys to Emergent Awakening” will take place September 2017 – January 2018 (with time off for the Holidays):

LIBRARY RENOVATIONS: PHASE ONE COMPLETE!
Thanks to two especially generous contributions from the Gail Anita Flagler Foundation in Chicago, and Shirley Coleman of Georgetown, TX, work began on May 1st . Phase I of the renovations include the Edgar Cayce readings area, the media lounge, and two small offices. The avocado green carpet from 1975 (!) has been replaced with new earth-tone carpeting. The walls are painted with colors mentioned in the Edgar Cayce readings. In the media room, ceiling tracks have been installed to accommodate “slider walls,” creating flexible space that can become three rooms or offices, as our needs dictate. These rooms will function as a children’s space, a media room, and a meeting room.

Phase II of the Library renovations is targeted to begin in a few weeks, followed shortly by Phase III. The work includes a new circulation desk, book-processing space for Library staff and more painting and carpeting. We hope you are as excited about these plans as we are. The new design has been undertaken with the guidance of professional designer (and A.R.E. Board member), Claire Levy, and will allow expansion space as your Library continues to grow. Currently, the A.R.E. Library has nearly 80,000 books and materials. This renovation is going to be a major step forward for the Library, and the A.R.E. overall. Stay tuned!

ATLANTIC UNIVERSITY
Atlantic University will lower tuition costs for students starting this fall. The university is also changing its academic calendar from 14-week to 12-week semesters to allow students to graduate more quickly. The calendar change also allows the school to offer four semesters a year instead of three beginning in 2018. The primary goal with the tuition reductions is to alleviate student debt. With these reductions, students can earn an accredited graduate degree for less than $15,000. The tuition is now $1080 per course (+ a $75 technology fee per semester).
