This is my update for October 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:


Meditation and Inner Life Teacher Training

This new online class will run from January 9 through April 16, 2017. Applications are due by December 11, 2016. The approach to this study and practice will be eclectic—drawing on sources from Eastern and Western traditions. As you deepen your own inner life, you will be better prepared to act as a guide, teacher, or mentor to others. The course culminates in a practical demonstration of your growing capacity to serve as a helper to other seekers. Course requirements include a practicum, in which you will have the opportunity to teach and share your own personal version of meditation instruction. A Certificate of Completion will be issued to all students who successfully complete the course. This course can be applied to the Spiritual Guidance Mentor Training Certificate.

Discover all that AU has to offer. Applications for Spring 2017 are due soon. | | 800-428-1512

Debuting in San Antonio and Dallas/Ft. Worth and then coming to a city near you, Patrick Belisle explores the lives of Jesus the Master and the path he left us to follow, and helps you understand how karma—and grace—affect our lives today in his new Field program Following in His Footsteps: Breaking the Cycle of Karma by Walking the Master’s Path.

We’ve added a new Astrology section to the website under “The Readings” section. Cayce had a unique view of our astrology, and we needed this section for the following reasons: 1) We wanted to share Edgar Cayce’s perspective on this popular topic, 2) It’s the most-searched term on our website, 3) It’s our most popular membership premium (free astrology chart when you join), 4) We have “astrology” as a key word in our Google Grants AdWords account. Here’s a link to the new section:

Blueprint for Holistic Healing, Dr. Norm Shealy’s latest book is now in stock! Dr. Shealy was first introduced to the work of the "father of holistic medicine" in the early 1970s. Edgar Cayce was the inspiration for his transformation from traditional medicine to holistic alternative therapies, which he has now pursued for more than 30 years. Now combining decades of clinical work and research with advice from the Cayce readings, Shealy has created a blueprint for healing that each of us can follow with questionnaires for self assessment throughout.
