This is my update for November 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., the Cayce/Reilly School of Massage and Atlantic University. A number of exciting things are happening this month! Please share the following with your friends:


The best way to make the world a better place is to show them how it is done. At Atlantic University, students grow and transform in ways they never imagined possible. Students become so full of knowledge and positivity that it overflows and begins to enlighten and change others. As beacons of light, students become change makers and are the ones doing the work to make the world a better place. Become a part of this interpersonal transformation. Application deadline is Saturday, November 13! [Remember, the curriculum is open to everyone – even those individuals only interested in a few classes and not the entire degree!]
