Sounds & Silence Retreats Sunshine Coast

Retreat for a day of Silent Meditation, Yoga Nidra, Music & Mantra

What is a Sounds and Silence Retreat?

Unplug from your worldly duties. Dedicate a full day to rest and relax and  nourish your body, mind and spirit. Rest in inner silence with guided meditations, flute meditations and sound healing. Mangalam is  surrounded by Permaculture gardens and Sunshine Coast Hinterland nature. Take one day out of your busy life. A silent retreat day offers time to withdraw from worldly chatter. Nourish yourself with gentle movement, mantra singing, yoga nidra, meditation and music in a  blissful day. Mangalam Meditation Retreat is the perfect space to go deeper.

A Vibrational Rebalancing

Deep vibrational rebalancing occurs through allowing time for a silent meditation retreat: with nourishing music, including mantra singing and sound healing with flutes, strings, bowls and gongs. As Aldous Huxley famously said, “After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.” Reconnect with your inner longing for peaceful presence with time in silent meditation and communion with nature. With profoundly nourishing green lush subtropical gardens alive with bird song, bamboo and butterflies, Mangalam  Meditation Retreat is the perfect backdrop. 

About Mangalam Sounds and Silence Retreat

Mangalam Meditation Retreat  is a rural property set in the beautiful Sunshine Coast Hinterland, Queensland between Palmwoods and Montville with sub-tropical garden surrounds. We’ve been replanting the land for 12years to create a wildlife corridor so needed by our native wildlife. The birdlife at Mangalam is quite diverse now with lorikeets, cockatoos, king parrots, pale face parrots and various honey eaters. Many other birds and native creatures pass through each year. Mangalam Meditation Retreat is the perfect retreat backdrop. 

Facilitators Terry Oldfield and Soraya Saraswati

Sound healing Sunshine Coast with musicians and teachers Terry Oldfield and Soraya offers both delicately orchestrated sound healing meditation as well as deep silent meditation.

Benefits of Sounds and Silence Retreat

Held bi-monthly @ Mangalam in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland a Sounds & Silence Retreat offers an opportunity for you to rest in deep presence surrounded by stunning nature. Our lives can become too busy with financial, work and family commitments which pull our energy in many directions. This can leave us feeling exhausted and overcommitted with no down time for healthy selfing or self-care. If this goes on too long our mental, emotional and physical health can suffer. So, this time is for YOU. Stress is the underlying cause of most diseases, making self-care and rejuvenation an important aspect of our health and happiness. 

“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and life to everything.”
– Plato


Mantra is a a tonal language of the heart with vibrations that realign us to our natural state. You will love Terry and Soraya’s sacred mantra singing, and sound healing with gongs, bowls, strings and flutes all laid on a bed of nature and silence. It’s a real treat for the senses. Mantra singing is joyful plus it uplifts the spirit, opens the heart and quietens the mind chatter.
