Awakening your Inner Light

Bringing you the FIRST edition of The Sacred Self retreat, designed to help you journey within, connect with your authentic self and manifest the happy, fulfilling life you were born to live.  

In our stressful everyday lives, it’s very easy to lose sight of who we are and what we truly want.
This retreat, facilitated by a team of dynamic and highly experienced coaches and therapists in the beautiful Sharjah desert, will provide you with the space, tools, guidance, processes and time you need to return to yourself and discover your inner light.

Albert Einstein said, “The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honours the servant and has forgotten the gift.” This is a unique opportunity to tap into your intuition and unique gifts in order to become a conscious creator of your destiny.

Event opens with welcome drinks and canapes

• Introducing your tools for the weekend: On arrival, you will be presented with an inspirational journal tailor-made for the retreat, along with a crystal to help ground you and a wellness kit to ensure this weekend is all about self-care, relaxation and restoration too.

• Connecting with your sacred self: To set your journey of self-reflection, healing and awakening in motion, Wellness Coach and Angelic Reiki Master Monisha Gurkar will guide you through a powerful meditation that will start to unlock your subconscious channels with the aim of discovering who you truly are rather than who you think you should be.

• Identifying your mission and setting intentions: Business and Life Coach Amrika Bhogaita, Business Coach and Thought Leader HalaBouAlwan, and Monisha Gurkar will lead this dynamic session, in which you will explore your life goals, identify your vision and mission, and set your intentions with the purpose of uncovering your unique gifts and bringing them into the light for success and fulfilment.

Lunch and Check-in

• Breaking with old patterns: Led by Monisha Gurkar and Amrika Bhogaita, we will consider what we’ve learnt about ourselves and our desires so far, as well as what’s holding us back from achieving them. Through reflection and meditation, you will start setting positive intentions and draw up a list of patterns and habits that no longer serve you.

• Making scents of it all: A beautiful, creative session led by Monisha Gurkar, in which you will make a scented candle using a special blend of natural oils made just for this retreat. Since scent is very evocative, this will be a powerful companion to your journaling going forward, helping you to tap into your creative, sacred self, intentions and desires.

• Release and surrender under the stars: Carrying our lists of things we wish to surrender, we will hike through the desert under the setting sun to a bonfire in the dunes, where we will cast our lists into the flames in a powerful, symbolic release. We will then settle around the fire for a special sound healing experience offered by Wellness Therapist Anuradha Kamath. Fire is a powerful purifying element, while sound frequencies calm the mind and bring the body into a balanced state, so the combination of the two under the night sky will help you to truly let go.

Dinner and then to bed

8:00 am The gorgeous 5-star Mysk Al Badayer Retreat, Sharjah


• Mapping your destiny: During this dynamic session, Amrika Bhogaita and Monisha Gurkar will help you to use everything you’ve discovered about your sacred self (your gifts, subconscious dreams and desires, soul purpose) to set positive intentions aligned with your goals, and map a new course in which you are a conscious creator of your destiny. They will also provide you with tools and practices, using your journal, to keep you on track.

• Inner alignment and manifestation through art: Using paints made from natural pigments found in the surrounding environment (extracted from crystals, rocks, etc), you will create an abstract watercolour painting under the tutelage of Artist Tilika Dsouza and Monisha Gurkar. When we create, we weave together inspiration and intuition, tapping into our subconscious, which may influence our choice of colours or reveal buried dreams, thus awakening and manifesting our deepest desires.
