with Carlos de León

December 5 through 19, 2022 

SPECIAL OFFER: REGISTER BEFORE JULY 12, 2022 & SAVE UP TO $1,120.57 OFF THE REGULAR TUITION!

PLEASE NOTE: Enrolment is granted only to students who meet the prerequisites as outlined in what is required to become an Ontogonic Transpersonal Body-Mind Therapist. 

This 14-Night/15-Day Residential Retreat: Mage Intensive, Ontogonic Body-Mind Therapy (Year Three), is available to students who apply and are accepted by Carlos de León into the final year of the training program. 

Prior to registering for your choice of lodging please contact the Ontogony Team: info@ontogony.com to confirm availability as space is limited. Reservations are accepted on a first-come-first-served basis. The intensive is hosted at Loon Lake Lodge & Retreat Centre, an unspoiled natural setting, which supports our dynamic therapeutic journey together.

The Ontogonic Body-Mind Therapy Three-Year Training, in itself, is a complete program for therapists and patients under the Ontogonic Model and is essential to understanding the theoretical foundations of the practice.

Ontogonic Therapy recognizes that liberation is not possible while we are caught by the solid reality patterns of our karma. 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.

If your vision includes becoming an Ontogonic Body-Mind Therapist,  the MAGE Intensive, Ontogonic Body-Mind Therapy (Year Three) is the final component of the foundational training and completes the Three Year Training Program. It offers an integration of the previous two years and a Diploma is issued upon completion of a Thesis and/or any other requirement as requested by Dr. Carlos de León.

ONTOGONIC THERAPIST CERTIFICATION PROGRAM

The training is geared toward 'Mage Therapy’, a term coined by Dr. Carlos de León to denote a spontaneous connection in the ‘Here and Now’; while facilitating a deep therapy process and following the thread of the presenting neurosis. It recognizes that liberation is impossible as long as we are caught by the solid reality patterns of our karma. Our body type or 'characterology' represents a part of that karma, and one of the most difficult aspects of breaking the physical and energetic characterology is that we have learned to identify so completely with it.

Carlos Castaneda called this characterological breakthrough “breaking human form”… a term suggesting that we are really cosmic beings, much more than just our bodies. Deep healing is required for most of us to reclaim and integrate a vision that allows a new reality: a reality no longer governed by neurosis and karma, but by love, freedom, grace, and enjoyment. That is the work of Mage Therapy.

In this retreat, under the guidance of Dr. Carlos de Léon, each student practices as a therapist while fellow students observe and provide feedback. By engaging in this way, the deepest aspects of the therapeutic process are explored experientially, technique is polished, and one’s understanding of the principles of Ontogonic Body-Mind Therapy is further clarified and refined.

Program Objectives:

  • Explore the vision and learn the principles of Ontogonic Therapy and what it has to offer as an expansion of therapeutic skills and as an avenue for personal growth and healing;
  • Learn practical applications of spiritual and psychological technology which facilitate self-knowledge and help integrate the divided self;
  • Experience the powerful process of Neural Field Reconnection, a fundamental requisite for professional training in Ontogonic Therapy, providing a strong foundation for all forms of personal growth work;
  • Discover a therapeutic path addressing the Humanistic, Transpersonal, and Holistic aspects of the individual: i.e. Energy, Body, Emotion, Mind, and Spirit.

The vision and goals for the Ontogonic Body-Mind Therapist or Mage-Therapist include the acquisition of the following attitudes, skills, and proficiencies:

  • Technical Skill: The therapist has transcended technique such that personal experience can become the main tool;
  • Empathy: The therapist has the ability to observe what is happening with the patient in the here and now, as well as being able to predict processes in an intuitive and clairvoyant manner;
  • Timing: The therapist is sufficiently in tune with the flux itself so that timing begins to follow the flux;
  • Creativity and Spontaneity: The therapist does not cease to be creative and spontaneous, and the therapy process unfolds naturally;
  • Handling of Transference and Counter-Transference: The therapist successfully avoids transference games in real-time; and stays alert and vigilant regarding future possibilities;
  • Handling of Energy: The therapist is sensitive to the energy of the flux itself and recognizes all energetic phenomena within a therapy process as manifestations of the flux;
  • Trust in the Wisdom of the Flux: The therapist is fully surrendered to the flux;
  • Observation: The therapist has achieved simultaneous observation - self/other and how observation itself begins to affect the therapy process;
  • Right Motivation: The therapist has evolved a personal vision based on helping to eradicate suffering in any of its forms and contributing to the liberation of others;
  • Therapeutic Ethics: The therapist is committed to the cultivation of the virtues and abilities outlined above and in the guidelines as basic to providing Ontogonic Mage-Therapy.

Guidelines for Ontogonic Therapists:

  • Follow the principles of Ontogonic Psychotherapy - Activate, Allow, Observe and Assimilate;
  • Create a state of awareness that allows the experience of ‘True Nature’ - for both the therapist and the patient;
  • Embrace the material from ‘True Nature’ so that instant assimilation occurs;
  • Maintain a perspective of Love, Freedom, Grace, and Pleasure as the Goals of therapy;
  • Offer consistent diagnosis, based always on the here and now;
  • Work directly and intuitively with the total flow of the moment. Do not get lost in the parts;
  • Hold an intention to attain the ultimate goal to “break characterology” and sustain the new freedom.
