Other Important Information:

Fall is a very beautiful time of year (think quaking yellow gold and red aspens groves). And this particular fall is an especially busy one, so flights, car rentals and lodging are going fast. The entire Wood River Valley is experiencing unprecedented growth due to it’s desirability. This rapid and unpredictable growth has led to a labor shortage. Sun Valley business owners and merchants are doing a spectacular job of serving the community and its visitors, and appreciate your understanding and patience while you are here.

While there is no Costco, Trader Jo’s, or Whole Foods, and Uber and Lyft operate during busy times of day only, Sun Valley is a very pristine valley with the grandeur of nature, its greatest asset. This sacred landscape will allow you to focus on the magnificent inner journey and transformation that awaits you!

If possible, arrive early or extend your trip so you can explore the area, visit the Sawtooth Mountains, one of our many lakes, hot springs or hiking/mountain biking recreational areas.

Please encourage your friends and family members to purchase your FOA tickets and book your accommodations as soon as possible.

The event and lodging will both sell out. If you need assistance with roommate/hotel shares and bundling tickets contact Rebecca Martinez at 619.549.9374 (text or call).  For travel plans, bookings, transportation, please contact Tina Murray (Travel Agent) at

We are looking forward to meeting you in Sun Valley, Idaho for Field of Awakening in Sun Valley.
