The 3-day Sunshine Coast Retreat includes:

Join Soraya and Terry at Mangalam Retreat on the 17-19th of March, and immerse yourself into your energetic imprint and spiritual healing, and learn how to raise your vibration to one of Love. 

Introduction to our energy body - Chakras and Major Nadis

Join Soraya at the opening workshop and learn about the body’s energy lines and the fundamental aspects of the chakra system.

Understanding human emotional frequency

Emotions serve as the carrier waves for the entire spectrum of feelings. Understanding that emotions are energy implies that they are fluid, moving resources meant to be felt and released vs. suppressed and ignored. Learn how to feel and release through spiritual exercises with Soraya. 

Meditation on the Chakras, including Yoga Nidra

When energy rises through our chakra centres, our consciousness grows and we can heal on deeper levels. The ultimate aim of yoga nidra is to come to know our innermost being or essential nature. Join Soraya for an hour-long yoga nidra journey through the chakras to cleanse your energy centres from root to crown. 

Developing Discrimination through the lens of the heart

Learning how to centre our focus on the heart space to listen and know what the spirit truly needs, and how to use that inner-knowledge to inform our decisions to remain loyal to our innermost truth.

Healing Sound, Music and Mantra, Aromatherapy

Terry Oldfield, acclaimed musician and flute master will join Soraya with live music and mantra.

“After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible, is music” – Aldous Huxley

Relationships in reflection Mindfulness in action

Learn how to be fully present in relationships, and how to lay the foundation to authentically interact with others. Applying mindfulness in relationships with self and with others.

The Power of Awareness - Living Mindfulness

Awareness is the doorway to recognising and understanding our own thought patterns, feelings, and beliefs—and how they cause suffering. Work with Soraya in this spiritual exercise in self-compassion and acceptance to learn how to live more fully.

Somatic Experiencing - Gentle Yoga

Somatic yoga is a trauma-informed yoga practice and is based on the principles of body and mind integration. Join Soraya in this session and practise many of the yoga postures and breathing techniques you find in other yoga styles with added somatic exercises to support the body and mind connection.

Deepening release with TRE and breath-work

Tension and Trauma Releasing Exercises is a simple yet innovative series of exercises that assist the body in releasing deep muscular patterns of stress, tension and trauma. Work with Soraya, a qualified TRE facilitator and learn how to improve your mental, emotional and physical health.

“I have had the pleasure of taking many of Soraya’s workshops and Yoga classes over the last couple of years. Her immense knowledge, experience, gentle care and non judgemental approach has played a huge role in my transformation and healing journey.

Her dedication to others well-being and healing is like no other. I feel for ever blessed and grateful to have Soraya in my life.”

Axelle Decolnet

Healing is a journey,  as all  our experiences are. When we undergo a process of healing, we can see with greater clarity. Our bodies become lighter, our minds sharper, and our spirits soar. We can speak from places of love and light more fully and embracing, instead of from feelings of trauma and despair. And as a spiritual side effect, when we undergo healing, we are more equipped to help others to heal since we are going through a transformative process. It can have a ripple effect.

Why do we need to heal? In reality, illnesses, injuries, and death are all traumatic experiences that can appear in our lives. We all know they exist, yet we never expect them to happen to us. When traumatic events occur, they are often marked with anxiety, helplessness, fear, and manifest in physical ailments.

Many people have strong feelings of anger, guilt, sadness, or grief in the days, weeks or even years following trauma. Some people start to feel better as they make sense of what happened to them, while others feel overwhelmed or trapped by intense emotions that won’t subside.

If you have ever felt those overwhelming emotions, or have felt heaviness in your body, as though it is weighed down with physical symptoms related to trauma, then Soraya Saraswati can guide you on this six-month ‘Awakening Hearts Mentorship’ of inner transformation releasing past trauma, grief, deeply held patterns that can undermine confidence, so you can shine your brightest light once again.

The ‘Awakening Hearts Mentorship’ program begins with a 3-day Wellness Retreat, on the 17-19th of March, 2023. Join Soraya Saraswati and Terry Oldfield at this sacred and healing spiritual retreat, and dive deeply into transformational healing to nourish your mind, body and spirit, set in the beautiful Sunshine Coast Hinterland.

I have had the pleasure to take part in a TRE workshop at Mangalam and have done 2 online TRE courses with Soraya.
I have learned so much, grown in my practice and am very grateful for the experience. It has helped me both on the physical as well as emotional level.
I can highly recommend Sorayas courses that integrate TRE practices, mindfulness meditations and Yoga Nidra.
The combination of these powerful practices helped me to deeply relax and undo physical blockages leaving me feeling painfree and profoundly at ease within my body.
Love it and will be back for more!
Thank you Soraya!

Soraya Saraswati & Terry Oldfield

In 2003 I met the wonderful musician and composer Terry Oldfield and soon we became best friends, working together writing songs and performing. We both shared a love of mantra and ancient cultures which we express by singing mantras and Celtic songs.

Our commitment to authentic spiritual life was in perfect alignment. We laughed, played and sang together…and in 2007 married and continue to tour globally sharing our work together with music and mantras for peace to this day. Join us at the Awakening Hearts Retreat, and start your spiritual transformation now.
