This is my update for September 2015 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:


Create CapstoneCREATE CAMPAIGN UPDATE

With just over three months remaining in this “Capstone Year” of our $30 million CREATE Campaign (capital, endowment, and program support). In addition to needing funds for our programs and endowments, we still need nearly $1 million in order to renovate our Library and Conference Center (new restrooms, HVAC system, Library carpeting, expanding the auditorium, parking improvements, and upgrades throughout the building). Donors of $500 or more to the project will be listed on our Stairway to Heaven. Help us make a great impression on our visitors. Visit EdgarCayce.org/donate to help!

 

JOIN US LIVE OR ONLINE – SATURDAY, OCTOBER 10 – FOR THE CREATE CAMPAIGN GRAND FINALE

As a member, you have loved the Cayce work. As a donor, you have supported the CREATE Campaign. At this event, we will celebrate, together, the ways in which this $30 million Campaign has revolutionized the Cayce work; bringing it to a whole new level for a whole new generation. Help us raise the final funds so we can place the Capstone on the Campaign's gift Pyramid.  

 

Members of the Golden Circle and Edgar Cayce Legacy Society (and attendees of that weekend's Ancient Mysteries Conference) will attend this Virginia Beach event at no cost. Everyone else is welcome to attend for just $100 per ticket. For more information about attending in person, contact Mari Fedele at 757.457.7150 or email: mari@edgarcayce.org.  

 

Unable to join us in Virginia Beach? The Grand Finale program will be live-streamed from 7:30 until 8:15pm Eastern Time at EdgarCayce.org/grandfinale. Meet up with your study group or other Cayce friends and tune in to catch the vibe together.  

 

Whether in person or online, we look forward to seeing you on October 10

 

ATLANTIC UNIVERSITY - TAKE YOUR SPIRITUAL PATH TO THE NEXT DEGREE  

AU logo 90Our new MA in Leadership Studies is ready for its first cohort of students, starting on January 11, 2016. Please help us get the word out-send an email to your friends and family. This truly is a remarkable new program that students can take online with top quality faculty. James Van Auken, Vice President of Academic Affairs and the Chair of the Leadership Curriculum Committee, wrote a blog about the history of Atlantic University and how this new program fits in with the original vision. For more information about the new MA in Leadership Studies program, visit our website at AtlanticUniv.edu/leadership.
 
Our core program since 1986 is the Master of Arts in Transpersonal Studies, which is essentially a holistic overview of psychology and spirituality, is also open for new students. We recently added a number of amazing student testimonials from this program to our YouTube page. Take a look and see how this program is truly changing lives for the better. A.R.E. Members may find this particular interview of value: see graduate Bonnie Perry, MA speak about her time at Atlantic University.  
 
Both programs are accepting applications for the Spring Semester now through November 15th.

A.R.E. CAMP UPDATE
are campA.R.E. Camp is now resting after the most adventurous summer on record! We made such wonderful memories with so many friends new and old. We hiked through the mountains, swam in the sunny Camp pond, ate vegetables straight out of the garden, lived a Cayce lifestyle, and had a blast. Now that Camp is all packed up and empty for the off-season, we're looking to begin construction on our NEW Dining Hall within the month! We're so excited to be breaking ground for this momentous building project, and looking forward to updating everyone as we go. It will take a big effort to complete this project in the short amount of time that we have! Nearly 200 people have already contributed to help make this new building a reality and to date we've raised about $70,000! THANK YOU! We’re looking to raise an additional $100,000 to help cover the gap between our needs and what insurance will cover. If you would like to pitch in to help, you can do so here.

 

ANONYMOUS DONOR DONATES $500,000 IN MEMORY OF GAIL ANITA FLAGLER
Anita FlaglerAn anonymous donor has established three endowments in memory of Gail Anita Flagler, longtime member and former Vice President of Trading Operations for the Chicago Board Options Exchange. One endowment is for A.R.E. Membership Scholarships, one is for A.R.E. Camp, and still another is to support our Prayer Services program. These endowments – totaling $250,000 – will generate funds in Gail’s memory in perpetuity. The donor also directed another $250,000 toward the renovations of our 1975 Library and Conference Center with an emphasis on bringing the Library up-to-date.

 

A.R.E. JOINS THE COMBINED FEDERAL CAMPAIGN—CHARITY #38083
CFCEdgar Cayce’s A.R.E. is now a Participating Charity with the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC). The CFC is an annual fundraising drive that provides an opportunity for federal civilian, postal, and military employees to donate to local, national, and international non-profit organizations. Make your donation to Edgar Cayce’s A.R.E. (Charity #38083) September 1 until December 15!

DOUBLE YOUR DONATION OF $500 OR MORE TO VISITOR CENTER RENOVATIONS THRU DECEMBER 31!

For me this building is very special. It’s been the place where I have met many of you and have formed meaningful and lasting relationships. For over 40 years, it has been a gathering place for like-minded people to meet and create and strengthen a spiritual community. Now this building is dated, tired, and well worn. We need your help to revitalize it for the next generation.

A group of donors – including Hazel Zachar, Richard Copeland, and our Board of Trustees – have joined together to create a Matching Gift Fund for all donations of $500 or more (up to a total of $150,000) toward this project! And, if you donate that amount before December 31, your name – or the name of someone you wish to honor – will also be added to our beautiful Stairway to Heaven donor wall. This is also the last year of the Campaign, so consider making a multi-year pledge so we can count that total toward the goal.
