At the A.R.E. we're celebrating Women's History Month. Each week in March we'll highlight women past and present – those who became scholars of the Cayce readings, practitioners healing body, mind, and spirit, and those who are now serving others everyday as part of this unique organization.
Each week, starting on March 8th, we will launch a series of videos throughout the month, here on this page and on our YouTube Channel. Women have played a central role in creating and perpetuating the A.R.E. and the Cayce Work since the very beginning, making incredible contributions to keep this legacy alive. Join us as we share their stories and celebrate the Women of the Work.
Women of the Work: Reflections on Edgar & Gertrude Cayce's Lineage of Love
Featuring Leslie Cayce
Leslie Cayce tells the stories of three relationships: between Gertrude and Edgar Cayce, Sally and Hugh Lynn Cayce, and herself and Charles Thomas Cayce. These marriages put the spiritual teachings of the readings into practice. Leslie, as one of their own, gives us this special perspective into the Cayce family.
Women of the Work: Edgar Cayce’s Family
Edgar Cayce's mother and grandmother nurtured his intuitive abilities as he grew up. His four sisters also supported him throughout his life, especially his oldest sister, who helped run the Cayce Hospital during its operation from 1928-1931. His wife Gertrude "loved him into focus," dedicating herself to a partnership that produced a world of physical, mental and spiritual wisdom.
Women of the Work: Women's Careers in the Work
These first generations of women who had worked with Edgar Cayce or became interested in the readings in the decades after 1945 created an ecosystem of knowledge, through study group participation, staff work, writing, public speaking, and all manner of other contributions. Here are just a few of the many women who made their careers exploring and teaching the wisdom found in the Cayce material.
