With PhDs in both Clinical Psychology and Holistic Medicine, Dr. Carlos de León has spent more than 35 years in related research, study, and practitioner experience, particularly in the area of personal transformation.
As the founder of the Mexican Association for Psychotherapy and Transpersonal Development, Carlos not only regularly shares his teachings, but also, and perhaps more significantly, has brought them together in the model of Ontogony, an inquiring discipline for the research, study, and development of liberating tools and paradigms.
He is considered a pioneer in his field for having created a model that integrates Western and Eastern psychology, multi-faith spiritual traditions, and scientific teachings for purposes of healing and transformation. The Ontogony path includes the areas of religion, martial arts, chi kung, meditation, spiritual traditions, shamanism, paranormal phenomena, and alternative healing.
The model of Ontogony not only enriches the psychotherapeutic process, but also 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 his major current teachings in the two areas of Ontogonic Body-Mind Therapy and Tantra and, to this end, intensive multi-year growth group programs are offered in both these areas.
In addition to his professional qualifications and many years of experience as a psychotherapist, Carlos has studied with many prominent Hindu teachers. He holds the position of head of the Shaivist lineage, Anandanamah, Kashmir, India. He is a Swami in the Aghori tradition of Sriman Narayan, India, and he is the lineage holder of the Kaula Yogini school of Maa Parvathi Nath Saraswaite.
He is the author of eight published books, and is a much-sought-after presenter and international teacher, with students in Mexico, Spain, Canada, Greece, Israel, and Guatemala.
Over the past many years, Carlos has shared his vast knowledge of both transpersonal psychotherapy and Tantra, along with the many other subjects included in the Ontogonic path, with students in Mexico and other countries around the world in a deep, loving, and compassionate way. And, now we have the great fortune of having these profound teachings offered in Vancouver, Canada.
