- Be aware of the karmic influences affecting your personality, relationships, and circumstances.
- Be aware of the deeper portions of your whole being.
- Come with an open mind to the possibility that there is more to you than a personality and physical body
One of the core concepts in the voluminous Edgar Cayce teachings is that our life has a purpose, and our soul has a special reason for being here now. We also have innate talents and gifts that can be activated and used with our core strengths to meet our spiritual ideal and mission in life. Using this self-study, body-mind-spirit course, you'll discover your talents, strengths, and even your weaknesses through course content and workbooks, and learn how to work with your dreams and use meditation for insights. The course includes video lessons by long-time researcher and consciousness instructor Dr. Mark Thurston, Jungian instructor Raye Mathis, and life coach Lynn Sparrow Christy, along with a downloadable workbook.
- Anyone who is seeking to KNOW yourself to BE your whole self, the outer and inner portions of your whole being
You are about to start on an exciting adventure in self-discovery. Using the online training videos and the pages of the workbook, you'll be taken through a comprehensive course in identifying your soul's purpose – a calling that is at the heart of your destiny as a soul -- as an immortal, celestial being who is temporarily incarnating as mortal, terrestrial one. Your deeper self, your soul, has a predetermined purpose for this incarnation and longs to fulfill that purpose through self-realization and growth, through interactive relationships that add to your understanding, and through meeting karmic conditions in your life. As Shakespeare so wisely wrote in As You Like It: "All the world's a stage, And all the men and women merely players; They have their exits and their entrances, And one man in his time plays many parts…." Our deeper self knows the script and the role we are to play, and the many different circumstances and relationships that we are destined to encounter. Learn yours through this course.
Dr. Mark Thurston gives you the right attitude for approaching and proceeding through this discovery and then he leads you through the details of self-discovery that result in your personal mission statement or soul purpose plan. Your supplemental resource is the the 2-Part "DYSP Workbook" with helpful work sheets. This workbook is viewable and downloadable in a PDF format (Adobe Reader is the required software, but most computers come with this, or you can simply download the software for free at Adobe.com). We recommend that you fill in the workbook in pencil, for as you go through the course, you may want to change or modify your answers.

Atlantic University instructor and faculty member, Raye Mathis, adds a broad view you, one that includes reincarnation, karmic dynamics, and mythological meaning. She also refers to some of the key worksheets in your workbook, which you can update.

She has been a student of the Edgar Cayce material since the early 60s and had attended numerous Association for Research and Enlightenment conferences at the Edgar Cayce Center. Her Atlantic University experience was the most intense application of the Edgar Cayce concepts she had ever experienced. After receiving her master's degree in clinical social work and attending the Carl Jung Institute in Switzerland for several semesters of postgraduate work, she accepted a position on the Atlantic University faculty. In addition to teaching the required courses, she has taught elective courses in symbolism, mythology, archetypes, and alchemy, all topics common to the Cayce philosophy and Jungian psychology.
