Alessandra Veronese

Mindset and Communication Strategist

The path of growth, starts with oneself and arrives at an awareness of one’s potential. Pointing you to the best path is my job as a mental coach.
There is always a road “inside” that leads us to realize our goal “outside,” an energy that is often held back by our negative thoughts, fears, fears, uncertainties, beliefs. Simply put, the first obstacle to achievement is ourselves. And I realized that the strongest weapon at our disposal is communication with ourselves and others.

I listen and help people by training their minds, enhancing their personal resources, eliminating unhelpful thoughts and beliefs that can hold back achievement, and identifying the most functional thinking strategies for achieving personal and professional goals.

Luca Biotti

Outreach e Residential Trainer

Luke holds a bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering and is a certified Six-Sigma Black Belt, working in industry for about 25 years.

Around the age of 20, he was subject to some spontaneous out-of-body experiences, which made him realize that we are more than our physical bodies.
Without having the tools and ability to manage that process advantageously, he began the quest for the missing part in his life: learning Non-Verbal Communication, Ericksonian Hypnosis, and eventually becoming an internationally licensed Trainer of both NLP®and LAB Profile®.

The meeting with the Monroe Institute occurred during a Remote Viewing seminar. Attracted to Monroe audio technology and its applications, while attending the first TMI Outreach seminar available in Milan, Luca had a transformative experience, after which he attended several residential programs (Gateway, Lifeline, Exploration 27, Lucid Dreaming Intensive, Starlines, Conscious Presence).

Personal experiences in Spiritualist Churches, Shamanic Practices, Holotropic Breathing and a near-death experience have given him a taste of the afterlife and the possibility of recovering more parts of himself, developing a purpose in daily existence.

Today Luke is an Outreach and Residential Trainer and member of the Professional Association, which integrates Monroe Audio Technology with other disciplines for personal well-being.

He decided to follow the TMI method because it is an intention-driven process of inner exploration that creates a learning environment in which self-imposed limits can be overcome easily and safely.

Understanding energy phenomena, connecting with the Higher Self and various practical tools to use in everyday life are the main themes presented during the programs he has conducted internationally.

Diego Giaimi

Osteopata, Counselor in Psicogenealogia e Costellatore

I am an osteopath, counselor in psychogenealogy, scholar of vibrational medicine, and creator of the 4R® technique. Through the integration of my studies with other subjects, including biological medicine and the soul movements characteristic of family constellations, I have been able to merge different approaches with the goal of synergistic action on body, mind and spirit. Over the years I have deepened my explorations into expanded states of consciousness, in part because of the valuable courses at the Monroe Institute, reporting much of the information in my books.

In individual sessions, we work with the study of the family tree, we will try to raise awareness through a change of vision and a broad look at the familiar field of information that resonates with the soul projects. The small and the large will merge in the vision of oneself, one’s family, and one’s soul.

He also delved deeper into the psychology of character by training in the Psychology of Enneatypes with Claudio Naranjo.
