Abiding As Peaceful Loving Presence

Awakening the Heart with Clarity

Overcoming Trauma & Shining Your Light

If you’ve landed here then chances are you are ready to take the next step in your spiritual and healing journey. To awaken and abide as peaceful presence in this now moment we must be free of our past.

Are you working on overcoming past trauma? Do you hope to heal from deeply held  grief, tension, shame or doubt that’s creating reactivity? Perhaps unresolved past is sabotaging your happiness. Perhaps you’ve achieved great things in your vocation and now is time for you. To do some deep inner-work.

The Awakening Hearts Mentorship offers a deep dive in a supported six month journey of healing, awakening, reclaiming your confidence and stepping into your highest destiny. 

My work is designed to support you to take back the reins of your life. To lovingly trust your miraculous body and nervous system’s ability to heal. To release the grip of past stress, trauma and associated anxiety and limiting beliefs. To become more embodied, present and restore  your natural vitality. 

Overcoming trauma and healing means the past no longer defines how we express ourselves in the world. We become more present and conscious to the arising moment. This moment. Then we can dive deeper and discover the magnificence of our true being. That sublime consciousness that is expressing here through this body-mind we call me. 

Soraya Saraswati manages Mangalam Yoga-Meditation Retreat on the Sunshine Coast. Soraya offers in person transformational work, assisting clients to overcome trauma and live their best life and awaken to live and abide in open aware conscious presence. 

With 40 years of experience as a therapist, mentor and teacher Soraya offers deep wisdom with a very unique approach.

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
