treasure chestA benefit of participation with a non-profit organization like the A.R.E. of New York is that we can provide it with financial support while benefiting from a deduction on personal taxes. It’s a way of putting your money where your heart is—and getting the Internal Revenue Service to facilitate the gift!

The win for the donor of contributing stocks that have gone up in value is that the donor receives a tax deduction for the full current value of the stock. The alternative is to sell the stock, pay tax on the income—and any subsequent donation would be less beneficial to both parties.

So we have established a brokerage account to receive donations of appreciated stock. Those who wish to donate stocks or bonds to support the Edgar Cayce Center can now take full advantage of the associated tax deductions! To do so, please contact our new Treasurer Betty DeCandia at [This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.] for detailed information. Thank you!

nijala sun pikestad 400x600What’s PIKE ST. all about? In the shadow of the Manhattan Bridge, a struggling family prepares to ride out the next big storm.  Unable to move her teenaged daughter Candace—whose mysterious aneurysm has rendered her unable to move or breathe on her own—out of their crumbling tenement, Evelyn plans for more than just survival: she fights for healing and redemption.

With PIKE ST., Nilaja Sun continues her partnership with Epic Theatre Ensemble for her first solo show since her international hit, the OBIE Award-winning NO CHILD…. Featuring her trademark humor, political incisiveness, and virtuosity, she brings to life the entirety of the Lower East Side, from decorated Puerto Rican war veteran Manny, to octogenarian downstairs neighbor Mrs. Applebaum, to Candace herself.  

What’s Nijala’s connection with our Center?
"I am blessed to be taking Anton Baraschi's bio energy healing class as well as zhineng Qigong group study. It is a continuation of the healing work my maternal grandmother Doña Lola cultivated decades ago as an espiritista and proud botanica owner. She comes with me in spirit to every class. And you'll meet her in PIKE ST."

destiny zodiac facesWhat is Destiny? Are certain things meant to be—or do we make them happen by our actions? According to Cayce it’s a combination of both.

Here’s an opportunity where your actions can really make a difference:

Our A.R.E. of NY Center is at a Crossroads.

With rents rising dramatically in our Chelsea neighborhood and our lease up on April 30th, we’re both searching for a new, more suitable space and negotiating with our landlord for the best terms possible where we are.

Either way, expenses will increase. If we relocate, there are expenses of building out a new space and moving, as well as rent. If we stay, we’ll pay higher rent, although we’ll work out the best deal possible.

miranda anthony 2014We’re pleased to announce that Anthony Perez has accepted the position of interim Volunteer Coordinator, stepping into the position previously held by Volunteer Coordinator and Bookstore Manager Miranda Rose Gold, who stepped back to focus more on her health.

Anthony has distinguished himself in his role as Reception Volunteer over the past two years, and has admirably performed additional responsibilities he took on in August, providing support for Events, Rentals and other Operations. On countless occasions, he has stepped in to make things at the Center run smoothly and efficiently.

Please join me in congratulating Anthony on his new position, and in supporting him in this vital role. Fortunately, Miranda will continue to serve as a Reception Volunteer and as a cherished part of the Cayce Center family. Thank you both for all of your contributions – past, present and future – to making our Center such a wonderful place to be! Want to join our esteemed volunteer team?
