This next series of ‘Group Therapy Sessions’ will introduce the ‘Transpersonal’ level of our existence, a model which integrates the spiritual, social, emotional, intellectual, physical and creative being into one complete vision of transformation; which strives to discover divinity through our own humanity and is a by-product of a person’s growth and development. This very important component of the process, is to recognize and accept the contents of one’s whole experience by unblocking and releasing the charge of all levels of our being, and integrating the repressed experience in the consciousness. By bringing it into the “Here and Now”, the recovered material provides both insight and resolution. (The results can feel like magic!)
In this series of seven sessions, with the guidance of Dr. Carlos de León, different themes of personal experience are explored. The therapeutic body-mind process is supported in a dynamic group environment; each participant working with his or her individual personal history, releasing limitations and connecting to a deeper knowledge and a sense of lightness and clarity.

Learn how this therapy works to open heart, and establish healthy contact with ourselves and with the world;
Discover how the deepening of our awareness becomes a tool for the transformation of our neuroses.

Dr. Carlos de León, the founder of Ontogony®, has pioneered a multi-disciplinary approach to human well-being and psycho-spiritual development. His work integrates modern science; ancient and multi-faith wisdom traditions; and therapeutic techniques from both the East and the West to promote healing and transformation.
The Ontogony® model not only enriches the psycho-therapeutic process, it creates a new vision where psychotherapy becomes a universal tool for the realization and liberation of human consciousness. With the recent establishment of his Ontogony® Centre in Vancouver, Canada, Carlos has chosen to focus many of the current offerings on Ontogonic Transpersonal Body-Mind Therapy.
