AFFIRMATION FOR OCTOBER
Our Father, our God, as we approach that that may give us a better insight of what He bore in the cross, what His glory may be in the crown, may Thy blessings – as promised through Him – be with us as we study together in His name.
-- Edgar Cayce reading 262-34
This is my update for October 2020 to A.R.E. members and friends who are interested in the new and exciting trends occurring within Edgar Cayce’s A.R.E., Atlantic University, the Cayce/Reilly School of Massage, and the Edgar Cayce Foundation. A number of exciting things are happening! Please share the following with your friends:
EDGAR CAYCE APPS
Edgar Cayce’s A.R.E. has developed a number of apps to put the Cayce material, programs, and information at your fingertips. Here are some of our most popular apps. Additional information on each of these can be found at: EdgarCayce.org/apps
Now it’s easy to access the body-mind-spirit content offered on EdgarCayce.org! The CayceConnect app is like a road map to spiritual discovery. You’ll have instant access to articles from the blog, newsletters, and magazines; plus videos that include the monthly Reflections radio show; member exclusive content like the Cayce readings database, and the Enlightenment Series: Monthly Practices for Your Soul, plus so much more!
Edgar Cayce Co-Creation App
Edgar Cayce's A.R.E. has partnered with Beauty Everywhere (formerly known as Oceanhouse Media) to bring you Edgar Cayce: Co-Creation App featuring wisdom from the Cayce readings delivered in a narrated audio format. Pulled from hundreds of concepts and ideas in the Edgar Cayce readings, the app selects three “ideals” for each week or day. The app is free when set to weekly thoughts; VIP members can receive new ideals daily.
Reflections Podcast App
The most convenient way to access our Reflections Show on your phone is with this app! Stay connected to the latest episodes in audio and video formats. You can also star your favorite episodes and save them to a list so you can easily enjoy them over and over! This app gives you complete access to our Reflections Podcast and if you're a fan of the show you won't want to be without it!
NATIONAL OUTREACH VOLUNTEERS
Quarterly information sharing meetings are occurring online and allow for cross-pollination of ideas among volunteers in America and Canada. Area Teams and Field Volunteers were recently sent a plethora of 128 combined articles, research materials and study group enhancement information from earlier A.R.E. publications, including links to additional resources. Collaboration with other departments at A.R.E. is allowing helpful policies to aid A.R.E. Field Volunteers in local activities to be developed and shared.

CAYCE/REILLY® SCHOOL OF MASSAGE – CELEBRATING NEW BEGINNINGS
The Cayce/Reilly School of Massage celebrated its fall graduation on September 11 - a wonderful group of alumni beginning their new career in holistic health! The School welcomes a new cohort starting their training on October 19 and is also accepting applications for February 2021 enrollment.
Using virtual and in-class instruction, the staff and faculty are dedicated to providing a unique holistic educational environment, preparing students for a rewarding career in the healthcare industry. As the use of massage grows, so do the reasons for people seeking massage therapy. More and more people are recognizing massage as an important element in overall health and wellness, especially in recent months when physical contact has been limited for so many. Massage is an effective way to relieve stress, manage pain and treat injuries. The Cayce/Reilly Massage is a trademarked routine that blends Swedish, Osteopathic and Neuropathic techniques. Contact the school for more information on enrollment.
ATLANTIC UNIVERSITY – ONLINE COURSES AND PROGRAMS ARE THRIVING!
Atlantic University is continuing to have an excellent academic year. The student body is growing and course enrollments are hitting record numbers. The faculty have risen to the occasion and continue to serve our students as mentors and guides. You can see a number of our faculty featured on our YouTube channel talking about their areas of expertise. We invite you to explore how Atlantic University can serve you, whether you are interested in taking a single course, obtaining a certificate in Spiritual Guidance Mentorship or Integrated Imagery Regression Hypnosis, or achieving a masters’ degree in Transpersonal Psychology or Mindful Leadership.

Or perhaps join the Good Karma Club with a donation of $20, $50, or $85 (Golden Circle level) per month: GOOD KARMA CLUB
