Monica, the Gong Mistress

I'm an Italian actress, singer, cabaret performer trained at London's Royal Academy of Music, with an interest in the spiritual, esoteric, otherworldly realms, ever since my early years on this planet.

In 2014 I met my first gong, while on a lucid dreaming retreat in a haunted mansion in Ireland. Of course it was love at first hearing! I discovered that the powerful sound of the gongs reach deep into people's souls like no other instrument, and after enrolling in a Gong Practitioner Course at the Northern School of SoundSmiths, I now offer sessions in my atmospheric and very bohemian Gong Vibrations Spa in Covent Garden.

TAROT: As a tarot reader I am self trained and have been practicing ever since I was 15.

Now in my 40s, what took my reading skills to the next level was to attend psychic development courses at the College of Psychic Studies in London, and the Arthur Findlay College in Stansted, where I developed my natural empathic qualities and interpretation skills (for want of a better word), using images, sensations, feelings as well as an innate understanding and deep interest about how the human mind works.

Polly, the Gong Ambassador

 

Little Polly had been rescued by Monica after a traumatic past, but she was still suffering from PTSD and irrational fears even after years in the safe environment of Monica's home. Magically, when the first gong arrived in Monica's home, Polly seemed to become more and more mesmerised by the gong sounds, often lying around the room while Monica was playing. Her behaviour also started to slowly change and she became a lot more comfortable and relaxed around humans. Today, Polly has become the Gong Ambassador, often posing for publicity photos and looking absolutely confident in front of the camera. But only if surrounded by the gongs!
