Yoga Nidra – Rejuvenating Meditation

Yoga Nidra is a modern Panacea

An important part of our holistic healing program is yoga nidra, which can support the body-mind to relax and heal. by anyone. Yoga Nidra as a classical meditation or relaxation practiced either lying supine comfortably in shavasana, or sitting while traveling or even from your hospital bed. Deeply relaxing and rejuvenating for body, mind and spirit, yoga nidra is the perfect antidote for life’s everyday stresses. In fact it is a modern day panacea which can be incorporated with any healing modality to enhance rejuvenation. It develops awareness, mindfulness and boosts energy levels. Being deeply calming it is perfect for many forms of anxiety, trauma or periods of rehabilitation after illness. It can be practiced in hospital, while traveling for jet-lag and in bed for insomnia.  It is undoubtedly a practice that will benefit everyone who uses it, and you need no prior knowledge of meditation……

Purchase Yoga Nidra online from Bandcamp or email me for a cd

The practice is enhanced with the calming flute music from Terry Oldfield

Shining Through From Grief To Gratitude

by Soraya Saraswati

A journey with grief that led to profound Awakening

Soraya Saraswati’s memoir ‘Shining Through From Grief to Gratitude’ is a parents rite of passage, of coming shining through the traumas of suicide, secrets and spirituality. From Outback Australia to Indian Ashrams, Greek temples and American Indian Sweat Lodges this is a journey a soul yearning for freedom from the pain of grief.

This book is a priceless gift 

“This book is a priceless gift from a courageous, beautiful soul and a shining beacon for our troubled modern world. If you have ever tried to find comfort and healing through spiritual paths when in deep pain and grief, then here is a guide who can assist your out of the darkness into a new dawn of forgiveness and freedom.” Sally Oldfield – Musician

From the readers…

I just finished your book and I’m about to lend it to Vedanta who’s keen to read it.
It was a strong read …..I could relate to so much of it….the naivety of youthfulness, spiritual utopian ideals, the intensity and journey of motherhood (and single motherhood) and the angst we go through as mothers, the wisdom and equilibrium we acquire as we get older and so on.
Thank you for writing the book (I was nervous about reading it), it has inspired me to stay strong in my own journey and to practice gratitude and loving kindness. Also a reminder to stay present. (I need constant reminding).

“To be free, first we need to clear the story of me with all its patterned and reactive behaviour. We retain our unique character but without the limitation of unconscious unexpressed vrittis  (whirling and fluctuations of the mindstuff). As we become clearer of past samskaras (psychological imprints) we are more available to presence.” Soraya 



Soraya shares non-dual spiritual wisdom, meditations, mantras and yoga therapy pointing us back home to our true nature… love.

Terry oldfield, master musician & flutist joins Soraya with inspired musical meditation sound journeys and mantra singing.

Humanity is now calling for healing on a deep level 

Imagine if you could experience a radiant mind that simply reflects the present as it is, like a Shining Mirror.
…without added judgements, worries, concerns, doubts or self-harming or reactive behaviour?

Cleaning the mirror of our mind requires absolute aware-presence in every NOW moment.

Through intelligent spiritual inquiry we can use the mind to jump over the mind and ultimately rest in the awesomeness of our own true nature living on soul purpose.

This course points us toward inner freedom in the light of love.  

From here we may each follow our unique human dharma or life-path while aware of the oneness of consciousness flowing through and connecting all as one.Hu
