Ontogonic Body-Mind Therapy is a process of deep discovery, acceptance, and transformation of neurotic imprints and karmic patterns from this and other lifetimes. It is a comprehensive therapeutic approach that integrates Western and Eastern psychology and multi-faith spiritual traditions like Shaivism Tantra, Dzogchen, Shamanism, Kabbalah, Vajrayana Buddhism & Taoism. Part of what distinguishes Ontogonic Body-Mind Therapy is its recognition that liberation is impossible as long as we are caught in the solid reality patterns of our karma. Our body type or “characterology” represents some of that karma; and one of the most difficult aspects of breaking the physical and energetic characterology is that we have learned to accept and identify so completely with it. There comes a time when it must be transcended. Carlos Castaneda called this characterological breakthrough “breaking human form” … a term suggesting that we are cosmic beings.  Deep healing is required for most of us to reclaim and integrate a vision that allows us to create the new reality: a reality no longer governed by neurosis and karma, but by Love, Freedom, Grace and Enjoyment. 

What is neurosis?  In the Ontogonic model, neurosis is understood as defence mechanisms that one acquires, primarily, during the early stages of life and childhood, to protect ourselves and be able to function in the here and now.  These defence mechanisms are stored as frozen energy in our physical body and they create a particular form or charecterology in each person.  With time these neurotic patterns become unconscious.  Through the process of reconnection, we shine light with our awareness to this parts of ourselves that we are no longer seeing.   By bringing into awareness our unconscious we can change our limitations, transform our pain and suffering into personal power and we can gain more clarity, love and wisdom.  

Ontogonic Body-Mind Therapy can help with:

  • resolving trauma.

  • relieving stress.

  • finding the root of your addictive behaviour.

  • finding the root of your depression. 

  • tapping into the messages of the body. 

  • finding resolution & peace with past decisions 

  • releasing sexual potential & creative force.

  • gaining more clarity in your life. 

  • tapping into your inner wisdom & intuition. 

  • finding the root & transforming chronic illness.

  • finding the root & transforming anxiety.

  • supporting big transitions in life.

  • tapping into the messages of dreams.

  • finding your life purpose. 

  • hormonal, energy & emotional balancing for

      post-partum depression.

  • connecting & trusting the flow of your body. 

  • recuperating your personal power. 

“We must give time to listen and enter into a dialogue between the mind and the wisdom of the body, so we can reconnect and recover what we have lost…”   

- Dr. Carlos De Leon

I am a certified Ontogonic Body-Mind therapist. I believe that in all physical symptoms there is always a hidden psycho-emotional and spiritual piece that needs to be brought into awareness in order to create true change in someone's health & wellness.   I use a variety of body-mind therapy techniques during my sessions like:

  • gestalt

  • dream work

  • symbol & archetype work

  • chi kung

  • visualizations

  • meditations

  • ceremony & rituals

I offer Ontogonic Body-Mind Therapy on its own. I also offer a combination of Acupuncture + Body Mind Therapy.  I find the combination of this two modalities to be very powerful and effective.  During this session we will have 1 hr to go through a process using a variety of Ontogonic Body-Mind Therapy  techniques. Once you are in the integration phase, then I will use acupuncture to help you go deeper into the integration process.  This is the perfect combination for people who are ready to start their reconnection of body-mind-spirit, to tap into their inner wisdom and to connect with their True Self.

This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.

A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
as an unexpected visitor.

Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they are a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still, treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you out
for some new delight.

The dark thought, the shame, the malice.
meet them at the door laughing and invite them in.

Be grateful for whatever comes.
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.
