AFFIRMATION FOR MARCH
May the desire of my heart be such that I may become more and more aware of the spirit of God, through the Christ, manifesting in me.

***Meditation Teacher Training Course is coming up this Spring! Applications due 3/23***
Open to all interested individuals. This course is designed to deepen your appreciation of methods for connecting with your inner spiritual resources. This study and practice approach is eclectic, drawing upon sources from Eastern and Western traditions. As you are guided through deepening your own inner life, it prepares you to better act as a guide, teacher, or mentor to others. This course culminates in a 12-week practical demonstration of your growing capacity to serve as a helper to other seekers. In the last week's practicum, you will have the opportunity to teach and share your version of meditation instruction to choose between mentoring three individuals for four weeks or creating and facilitating a workshop.
Students who complete the course will finish with a formal certificate of completion.

We have grown our Correspondence Program with 72 NEW mentors and mentees and grouped 10 NEW prison study groups. So far this year we have sent almost 400 books to 5 different facilities to support their libraries for inmates. A lovely A.R.E. Member, volunteer, and author, Toni Romano, has generously gifted us her new book Growing into Wisdom and Grace to send to women behind bars. We are so blessed, thank you!

A SEARCH FOR GOD – ZOOM GROUPS SOAR!
Study Groups, online and in-person groups (masked and socially distanced), continue to thrive and grow. If you would like to participate in an ASFG online group or host one yourself, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, or Judith.email@example.com or Karen.firstname.lastname@example.org! We are now turning our attention to Youth A.R.E. Study Groups. A pilot project to introduce Study groups to the youth is being sponsored by the Southeast A.R.E. Region and co-facilitators Gina Preziosa and Courtney Salamone (in Florida and North Carolina, respectively). In order to keep it relevant and compelling for young people, supplemental materials developed by Marion Bond, longtime A.R.E. member( formerly of the Heartland Region) on intuition and other topics will be used, in addition to principles from the book Beginning the Search (developed especially for young people and based on chapters of “A Search for God”) will introduce important aspects of spiritual growth. We are asking our friends to keep this project on your prayer lists as we move forward: The Youth ASFG Study Group Team. THANKS, EVERYONE!

What is YOUR dream for the Cayce Work and the A.R.E.? My dream for A.R.E. is to reach more people with this life affirming material, especially right now. You can help make this a reality.

Your Source Fund donation today will do that… and it will help to co-create the future of the A.R.E. Thank you. https://www.edgarcayce.org/donate/make-a-donation/
A.R.E. and FreeWill… a Creative Connection
Members are continuing to take advantage of the new A.R.E. connection with FreeWill (an online, no-cost, will-creation service) to draw-up their personalized legally valid wills. 40 have done it in the past two months alone. You can, too! Members say that this free service has been instrumental in getting them to create their wills and having peace of mind as a result. Citing the positive impact of the Cayce Work in their lives, members are able to include the A.R.E., Edgar Cayce Foundation, or Atlantic University in their estate plans. In so doing, they not only enjoy the benefits of being valued members of the Edgar Cayce Legacy Society, but also gain the satisfaction of ensuring the A.R.E.s future for years to come. Visit http://edgarcayce.org/freewill to start your will today!
If you have questions about FreeWill, the Edgar Cayce Legacy Society, or anything else to do with your estate planning, please contact Joseph Taylor in the Office of Philanthropy at email@example.com or by phone at 757-457-7215.
