Ontogonic Body-Mind Therapy is a process of deep self discovery, acceptance, and transformation. It is a comprehensive & compassionate therapeutic approach that integrates Western and Eastern psychology and multi-faith spiritual traditions like Shaivism Tantra, Dzogchen, Shamanism, 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 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 a 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/energy/mental/emotional bodies 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 gaining more clarity, love and wisdom.

  • supporting big transitions in life.

  • 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…”
