The Soraya/Terry experience was life changing. What can I say, early morning chanting with live flute, guitar, key board and the most soul stirring voices I have ever heard. Then there was the yoga, meditation and 'Circle Time'. The yoga was gentle, yet challenging. The meditation was rewarding and Circle Time was educational, challenging and life changing.Clare Garner - Aged Carer - Sunshine Coast
I gained 'tools' that are enabling me to make positive changes in my personal and professional life. Soraya and Terry are extremely caring and generous with their talents and time. Thank you both so very much. Everyone I know is hearing about this fabulous experience.Clare Garner - Aged Carer - Sunshine Coast
Namaste Soraya and Terry, While I was at the retreat I kept saying to myself., “oh I am having such a wonderful time”. These words were spontaneous and heartfelt. Every one of my senses was massaged.Coralie Harris - Yoga Instructor Brisbane
Touch – such magic massages and treatment the feel of sea air in my lungs. Taste- the delicious ayurvedic food and fresh daily coconuts. Sight- the incredible scenery around the village, the festivals, Sun rises, sun sets on the Arabian Sea. Smell – spices, oil essences, sea, village. Hearing- the sound of the rolling surf and the awakening of the village and temple with the sun coming up during early morning yoga. The sound of mantras music.Coralie Harris - Yoga Instructor Brisbane
The India retreat with professional facilitators Soraya and Terry Oldfield was a valuable insight to Meditation and Mindfulness. I received wonderful treatments from the doctors and staff in the treatment rooms. It was a joyful and uplifting experience, one I would like to do again.Denyse Liddy - Teacher Nambour
I attended the India Retreat with scepticism and trepidation. But, in a short space of time I realised that for the first time in my life I could be myself, without criticism. I didn't really like myself before India, but now I know I am ok, still work in progress, but more aware of who I am. Soraya and Terry are generous, gentle souls, who you will grow to love and respect as we did. The Ayurvedic doctors are also worthy of respect for their professionalism and caring.Rusty - Retired Sunshine Coast
What a blessing to be part of the Music, Meditation Mindfulness and Mantra Retreat Easter 2015. There was a generous sharing of knowledge from Soraya and Terry, such warmth and gentleness from the Indian people, I felt very safe, with the bonus of the beauty of Kerala. If you are keen to experience yoga and ayurveda in a nurturing and uplifting environment then the MMMM Retreat with Soraya and Terry is for you. Now that I am home I have been able to incorporate many things that I learned on Retreat which helps me feel I have an enriched life.Kerry Murray - Sunshine Coast Business Owner
