 My name is Patricia Carlota and I am a certified Gong Practitioner with a background in the arts sector. Alongside my Gong Practice, `I have been awarded a Master in Arts, and my professional explorations include co-founding a theatre company, co-organising participatory arts projects in the field of mental health and wellbeing, assisting in the production of art technology workshops, and working as a Stilt Walker, Stage Manager and Sound Recordist.

I have always been drawn to Holistic Practices, and interested in vibration, energy fields, altered states of consciousness, and personal development. As a result, alongside my gong practice, I explore a variety of holistic practices and tools that enhance my perception and experience of this world. I practice Kundalini Yoga, Meditation, and Visualisation since 2010. During the same year I learnt about Educational Kinesiology by taking a Foundation Course in Brain Gym. Most recently, I have been practicing Energy and Shamanic Healing.

My journey with sound started as long as I can remember. I have always been fascinated with rhythm, exquisite and mundane sounds, and life’s soundscape. However, in 2012 sound became a priority, and I began to research sound as a concept. I started studying how sound is generated, and understood that sound is a vibration, that it affects us at cellular level, and that we are surrounded by and are vibration. 

Throughout my research, I became interested in how we 'sound'. If we are vibration, is there a spectrum of vibration? Is wellbeing connected with vibration? And can sound change our vibration and consequently wellbeing? As I looked into these questions, I was introduced to the Gong and totally fell in love with its transformational power.  I since received my Gong Practitioner certificate from the College of Sound Healing in Devon, training with Sheila Whitaker.  I immediately started working professionally as SonicSoul. 

I currently work with a 38-inch Paiste Symphonic Gong, a 32-inch Paiste Mercury Gong, a 22-inch Tone Of Life Dance Gong, multiple Singing Bowls, a Frame Drum, a Shruti Box, Koshi Wind chimes, Cactus Rainsticks, Croaking Frog Güiro'shakers, and various Bells, Rattles, Shakers, and Chimes.

I am passionate about bringing Gong Baths to new audiences and facilitate both private and group Gong sessions. My Gong Practitioner insurance is covered by Holistic Services, and I am a member of CMA - The Complimentary Medical Association and The College of Sound Healing.
