Gather the Courage to live a life on your terms!

Welcome to the Gathering

Your space for personal growth so you can follow your dreams and focus on your goals

while leading the life befitting a Rebel!

You want freedom from fear, doubt and most importantly the rules others have bestowed upon you to live by.


But there are things always getting in the way!

  • You don’t want to rock the boat because when you do, you fear you will end up alone
  • Life is busy enough without adding anymore pressure onto yourself from yourself to create change
  • You’ve tried this once before with little to no results and running out of patience

You have the best of intentions to (finally) step into the person you’ve been hiding for so long – and it feels scary as hell (rightfully so) – and you may have additional thoughts like:

  • Where do I start?
  • Who do I turn to for help?
  • What does it mean to live on my own terms?
  • What should be my area of focus?
  • What will make the difference this time?
  • How do I choose the goals to work on?
  • I don’t truly believe I can pull this off, so why bother?

This is what I know to be true:

When you set the intention for you and your life, you’re already on your way.

But intention isn’t going to be enough because it also takes knowledge and implementing what you have learned!

And this is especially true for those really hard and challenging days you are going to face!

How to find the courage and life a life on your terms


  • Get clear on who you are and what you want
  • Decide to stop hiding behind the rules that others have created
  • Have support for empowerment and helping you dig for courage

What you will need:

  • Simple learning format that’s straight forward and to the point guiding you along the way

I’m here for you every step of the way!

I’m Petra Monaco.

I’m a mom, author, serial entrepreneur and a creative soul, just like you.

Often times, when I tell my story about:

    • Growing up in Foster Care
    • Being a Survivor of abuse
    • Immigrating to another country
    • Recovering from Co-Dependency
    • Becoming a Special-Needs Parent

And still manage to earn 2 degrees, write 5 books, raise my children in a blended family, create art and build a business around it. This leads people to two different questions!
How do you still smile after all you’ve been through? How do you do it all?

My answer:

You only die once and until that happens I want to live my best life being me doing what I want.

Everything I offer in this community is based on experience and knowledge I’ve gained over this lifetime and sometimes by throwing spaghetti on the wall to see what sticks and what doesn’t.

I believe in walking your own talk, showing up for yourself every single day so you can have the cake at eat it too because just looking at the cake doesn’t seem like a good idea at all. Aside from being an Artist, Author and Mother to three amazing human boys, I have the utmost passion (and purpose) to help people follow their dreams, focus on their goals and fully step into who they are along the way so they may reduce the constant frustration that keeps hanging around like a dark cloud on a rainy day.

I’ve lived in constant frustration until one day I decided I would no longer have a “case of the Monday’s” ever again. I have turned my life inside out, upside down and came out the other side the person I was hiding for a very long time. And with that I started showing up not giving a hoot what people think about me or what I do and it’s my mission to help you do the same.

Frequently asked question

Here are a few answers to our most common questions

1. What happens when I join The Gathering? 

Following the purchase:

If you are a new customer, you will be redirected to the login page after your purchase. You will also receive an email with all the details so you don’t have to keep looking for that information.

How long do I have access for?

Your membership subscription remains active until you cancel it.

2. I have a mental health condition. Is this right now me?

This does not replace therapy!

As a matter of fact, this is life coaching and meant for personal growth – while sometimes in combination this can be great alongside therapy, don’t join without consulting your health care providers first. You must be able to take full responsibility for your own wellbeing because you may stir the pot of uncomfortable and difficult emotions.

3. Do you offer refunds?

No! I have a cancel anytime policy!

There are NO refunds for The Gathering except where required by American Competition and Consumer Commission Law.

There are no refunds for change of mind, or because you’ve logged into the membership site and realized this is not the secret sauce you were looking for that magically changes your life. You have to do the work to achieve results.

As soon as you join, you receive access to my books, courses and more. I stand fully behind my products, and I don’t enable quitters.

With that said, while I don’t offer refunds, you can in fact cancel your membership anytime.

4. What if I need help?

I am here for you!

You can reach out via the help desk or email at and I’ll answer within 24-36 hours (except on weekends)
