Leo Castrence is a Loving Father, Certified Psychosynthesis Transformational Life Coach (PLC), Fatherhood New Paradigm Hacker, and a Relationship Alchemist.
Originally born in Spain and raised most of his life in Hawaii. Leo has always been a rebel and extremist. All or nothing. After graduating high school in 2004, Leo went onto the University of Hawaii where he quickly learned that following the path of the American Dream wasn’t for him. He wanted to explore new places and meet new people. He eventually dropped out of UH and went into figuring out what direction to take. After a few years of getting sucked into distraction, Leo decided to move to Southern California with a few friends. He ended up living in So Cal for 8 years before realizing he was doing the same thing as Hawaii and had forgotten his intentions to travel and explore. And this is where the real journey began.
Leo’s self-exploration journey intentionally began in October 2013. After living 8 years in Southern California he decided to quit his job, sell all his belongings and hit the road. He bought a van and traveled the country in search of redefining happiness and success. These 2 questions took him on a journey across the States and even making it out to Colombia. During his travels of 3 years, he took his time to sharpen his tools and explore his passions. He spent much of his time assisting in producing music festivals, organizing retreats, community building, exploring intentional communities, workshops, and self – exploration.
Leo is a Psychosynthesis Life Coach (PLC), certified in 2018 with the 120-Hour Nationally Certified Psychosynthesis Coach Training Program through the Synthesis Center. As a Transformational Coach, he feels deeply called to create more resources and support for new fathers. As a new father himself, he went through the lessons and obstacles in the new territory of Fatherhood. He eventually learned how much powerful resources and support existed for momma and baby but was lacking for fathers. Leo then went into deep self-exploration and research with the support of his life partner Cassandra. In his experience, he found (and continues to explore) patterns and “struggles” that are common among fathers. Most fathers are feeling confused, lost, and incapable in what it means to be a father in today’s reality. So, where do we begin? We begin by going within.
