“Angel has immense intellectual ability and is especially gifted by her ability to hone this intellect with critical thinking thus making her a very creative individual… Angel has also devoted a lot of her life to the study of dreaming psychology in varied cultural context.  Her sensitivity to another approach of being in the life-world gives her a rare ability to do research in a manner that is sorely lacking in our field.  Angel brings with her the tools and seeds of transformation for our culture which is psychologically and spiritually bankrupt at this time.  Angel is a person that will bring much to our field and society.”
- Eduardo Duran, Ph.D.

“The record will show that her travels and life experiences have taken her to many places, resulting in the evolution of an educator and thinker with keen insight and seasoned skills.  I have known few individuals whose growing up years were tempered by encounters with such luminaries as Rollo May, Eduardo Duran, Clara Stewart Flagg and others.  Her unique life journey has also included extensive training and practice in theater, Waldorf Education, Senoi Dreamwork, and Tibetan Buddhism… Angel is refreshingly straightforward with people; she “presents” with a refreshing candor and absence of guile and pretension.  At the same time, she is a compassionate listener of the heart.”
- Benjamin Tong, Ph.D

“For me to speak of Angel, is to sound smitten, because I am- in that in her, a deep longing I’ve been carrying was met: to find a knowledgeable and skillful mentor I could trust impeccably, who would guide me in my exploration of the dreamtime world.  Having been raised since her early childhood in the ancient lucid-dreaming tradition of the Senoi, I feel has given Angel the unique depth of ‘living from whence she speaks.’  I experience in her presence- what I would consider to be a living transmission.  And I don’t say this lightly or to be corny and ‘new-agey.’  I say this because I am changed in her presence: she stirs something deep within me, where I am reconnected with forgotten dreams, where my perception into another realm opens, and my dream retention is hugely increased.  I highly, highly recommend for anyone who is even slightly interested in offering their life to help bring forth peace on this planet to work with Angel, who has taken her place, and added her considerable body of work to a dreamtime lineage of one of the most peaceful human communities that ever existed!”
- Maria Mazhary

“Angel is an extremely creative person and can be counted on to deliver some original product or teaching format whenever she becomes involved in a new venture. I was particularly impressed with her plans to develop a novel architectural structure to facilitate dreaming interaction for a variety of different kinds of dreamers. I would rank Angel in the top one or two percent with regards to such interpersonal skills as warmth, sensitivity, compassion, and supportive skills in working with a wide range of age groups and social classes.”
- Robert Van de Castle, Ph.D.

"Angel Morgan is an exceptional artist, and educator whose talents are wide ranging and multifaceted. I eagerly welcome the opportunity to work with her again and congratulate anyone who has the good fortune to do the same."        
- Marco Sanchez,
Producer, Lyceum Films

"I have known Angel since 2003 and am consistently amazed by her positivity, enthusiasm, and creativity when it comes to teaching and education. Angel cares deeply about her students and works hard so that they can succeed. I think she is simply an awesome teacher and highly recommend her."        
- Jeremiah Turner,
Waldorf Speech & Drama

"Her facility with dreamwork, and her ability to bring this resource and practice to others offers them depth in their personal understanding and can enrich their lives. She has also made major contributions in Saybrook seminars, giving from her expertise to other students. It is a pleasure to work with Angel."     
- Ruth Richards, Ph.D.
