Week Two ~ Hotel Aldeia da Fonte

Aldeia da Fonte resort

Hotel Aldeia da Fonte is my favorite home away from home! I have traveled around the world and it is this resort in the Azores with its combination of natural beauty and gracious, customer service that excels over all others. The comfortable, spacious suites and the profusely blooming perfumed flower-gardens bring peace to my soul.

Located on the shoreline, Aldeia da Fonte is a haven of lacey shade trees and delightful pathways leading to spectacular, private ocean nooks and little hide-away reading areas. Seating and stairways outdoors, are carved in natural rock formations. The fairies abound here and the night-singing Shearwaters also make this their home.

The cuisine is superb with organic, garden grown vegetables and local fish. An excellent wine menu is available with homemade breads and Portuguese cheese. Their delicious and exotic pastries melt in your mouth.

During this relaxing seminar, immersed in old world charm, we spend days on the well-appointed boats of Aqua Acores of Lajes. The boat owners are seasoned Portuguese captains who have a long-term relationship with Sperm whales and all of the island cetacea. They are gentle sea-faring men and women.

Meeting before and after the boat trips, we meditate, share and remember our spiritual Atlantean lives. The "veil" is very thin here, and our simultaneous existences come through in dreams, conversations and ocean swims. In touch with our Higher Self, we experience Truth in the Beauty around us and remember our enlightened reasons for Being on Earth.

I look forward to attending this beautiful reunion at the E.T. Base known as Pico Island, Azores, with you; and to swimming with you in the deep blue water with many dolphins.

Warm Aloha,
