Team will be sharing their Visions according to their experiences, beliefs, and
perspectives.Like in a mosaic where different pieces of material come
together to create a beautiful expression of art, Angel Valley Sedona is a

True Self's living and working in alignment with one another.
We are introducing four new concepts that reflect our new awareness,
new insights and that are in tune with our current perspective on personal responsibility

questions or comments.We enjoy being in communication with you again!
| MICHAEL'S VISION|
My sharing is only from my point of view and does not
necessarily express any other person's point of view or perspective. It is time
for me to more fully express me and to let my light shine more brightly. It is
time for me, as a co-founder, to take more of the responsibility that comes
with living and working at Angel Valley.|
I have chosen to take my Personal Experiences around the
October 8th Sweat Lodge and use them as My Guidance on my journey
through life! Within days of the incident I began walking the Labyrinth and
repeating the following mantra: My Higher Self is Guiding me! Not My will but
Thy will be done!
I am taking these opportunities to review My Beliefs and My
Choices and to be my True Natural Self. Since July 2008, I have been carrying a
Vision given to me by Archangel Michael. This is a Vision of a New Paradigm
World where everyone is Living in The Now Moment, everyone is Being Their True
Self, everyone is Following their Highest Excitement, and everyone is receiving
Direct Guidance and Messages, from Source, The Creator God.
For further reading on my perspective on the New Paradigm, please, visit
God has given Me the Gift of Free Will and of Choice. I and
I alone have the freedom to choose how I will respond, what Attitude I will
hold, and what Beliefs I will choose to embrace around what happens to Me. With
these Gifts I take on the Personal Responsibility and Accountability for all of
My Conscious and Unconscious Thoughts, Words, and Actions.
Some Decisions I have made were at times based on beliefs I took on from others, in a sense giving my power away. One such choice was to have one set rate for each group retreat participant. This idea was
presented to me by one particular facilitator and I went with it. The new
pricing concept presented below is a result of my reviewing my past choices and then making a new choice.
I am choosing to more Consciously Follow My Excitement in my life, in what I do in and with Angel Valley. I
have not always allowed My Excitement and My Light to shine brightly, while at the same time
always Inviting Others to Follow Their Excitement and to Turn Up the Brightness of Their Light.
I am inviting any Individual or
Facilitator that feels they had an experience with Angel Valley, its
Co-Founders or Staff that was felt as being out of alignment to contact me.
Please let me know what was felt as being out of alignment and what can I do to
bring things into alignment. My intent is to bring ALL past and current
relationships into Balance and Alignment. I will do my best to address all responses
where things were felt as being out of alignment and do my best to bring them
in alignment ASAP.
Philosophy as we have put it into words for Angel Valley is very much how I
focus my intentions in my personal life.
I am looking forward to connect, or
re-connect, with more beautiful people that come to Angel Valley and to see
my favorite themes is to be as much as I can in my Divine Feminine Power. That
points me towards being in my heart, listening to my inner voice and to see the
Divine in myself, in others and in everything around me. It directs me to be
aware of what the Creator God presents to me by what I attract.
at what has been on my path over this last period, I have had major
opportunities to practice remaining centered, to focus on what is really
important and to trust that things will all work out for the highest good of
myself and everybody around me. Working harmoniously with others, with whom I
may not always share the same insights and viewpoints, is another field of
learning and practice. In the meantime I count the blessings in my life, feel
gratitude for the place where I have the privilege to live and work, including
the challenges in 'my sandbox', and enjoy my life.
I, too, have taken on the mantra of my higher self is
guiding me. Knowing that I will
know what I need to know when I need to know it. Two very powerful statements that have re-shaped my life.
These days I am listening to the call of something larger
than me to go deeper into my shadow side, my darkness my fears. I was asked to just show up, witness,
hear these beliefs of this wounded-ness that have lived inside; to see the
beauty and gifts that each one gave me through my life; to thank them and bring them into the
larger, more accepted place within me.
Mine is a path of going deeper into my soul. To dance the dance of life with all parts of me, knowing
that love is the only way.
A poem by Jelaluddin Rumi:
breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you
go back to sleep
must ask for what you really want
go back to sleep
are going back and forth across the doorsil
the two worlds touch
door is round and open
go back to sleepWhere will you be when the call
comes? Will you answer it?
I leave you with words by David Whyte:
"... sometimes it takes darkness and the sweet confinement of
your aloneness to learn that anything or anyone that does not bring you
is too small for you..."
I came to Angel Valley to find
freedom from the prison I had created in my life. I have found that freedom. It
is in living from the heart, a place where trust in the Creator of all brings
me to total peace and harmony within and without.
If you too want freedom, I
invite you on the journey of a lifetime. Come to Angel Valley and go within
your heart, where your true self, your Soul, lives. Listen to your heart! In
doing so you will hear the voice of God.
The only place you can contact God is
from within the heart.Fawn Foster
We have found that most visiting Group Retreats have a focus
that is mainly based upon a Personality who is offering his or her teachings
and insights about a specific theme or topic. Angel Valley and what it has to
offer is generally a secondary reason for the participants coming here. Group
Retreats by their very nature create more of a business relationship between
the Facilitator and Angel Valley.
We have decided to step away from one set rate for our
lodging, which has been a simple concept for us to handle. We are now introducing
the element of free will and choice regarding the accommodations for all Group
& Individual Retreat participants.
We have established a new pricing arrangement for Group
Retreats with five options, which reflect a
difference based upon where a person chooses to sleep.
Please, visit our webpage:
For the new pricing and the group guidelines:
This change is effective per
June 1, 2010 for all new Group Retreat contracts.
Individual Retreats generally focus on a personal theme or
topic of self-reflection, self-discovery, and connecting with self. This can be achieved by individuals being alone in Nature and connecting with Spirit. It can also be achieved with the assistance of our individual holistic
services. There is always the possibility of interaction with staff in one way or another and is based upon synchronicity and inner guidance. Angel Valley's
Philosophy, Vision, and Mission play an important roll in Individual Retreats. We know that for many, many people both the Individual Retreats and the Group Retreats serve as a very valuable support vehicle and tool,
and we will continue supporting both.
We have reviewed our individual retreat programs and have come up with an more empowering way for people to be at Angel Valley for Individual
We are introducing 'Conscious Energy
Exchange' Programs for ALL Individual Retreats effective June 1, 2010.
We are taking a leap of faith
and have remove all set rates for Individual Retreats Accommodations. Give what GOD and your Higher Self guide you to give in Exchange for what You Have Received.
For the time being we will continue with a set rate for the meals, and for the individual holistic services.

Please call 928-634-2400 with any questions, comments or requests.
From April through October we will
be offering camping at Angel Valley. There are five beautiful camping sites in
the shaded area close to the creek. A shared bathroom is available for those
camping sites. All campers will be responsible for their own camping equipment and
their own food. Please, call for additional information.
|RETREAT & WORK PROGRAM|
Over the past years people have been guided to
Angel Valley and have offered their services as volunteers. Some have stayed
for days, some for weeks, and some for months.
Because of our beautiful experiences in working together
with these kindred spirits that have been guided to Angel Valley, we recently
have implemented an official Retreat & Work Program.
Please, visit www.angelvalley.org/pages/aboutus/volunteer.html.
Some of our current Work Retreatants have
shared their experiences, which you can read at
|WE WELCOME YOU!|
We welcome you all to enjoy the peace and quiet of Angel
and allow yourself to be healed, rejuvenated and transformed.
