Setting the Goal: Turning Obstacles into Opportunities

Duane & Catherine O'Kane

When Alice approached the Cheshire Cat in Alice in Wonderland and asked the question at a crossroads, 'Which road shall I take?' The Cheshire Cat replied, 'Well where do you want to go?' Alice responded, 'I don't know where I want to go.' To that the Cheshire cat told Alice, 'Well any road will do then'.

Held captive in all obstacles is opportunity. Opportunity reveals itself if you observe the apparent obstacle from the perspective of the goal you want to reach. Most of us have no idea what our goal is and thus see obstacles as simply being obstacles. Asking ourselves when encountering difficulty the question: ‘What is this for?’ rather than ‘Why did I create this?’ allows for an entirely different and productive experience.

Those that succeed look forward to encountering these problems because they become stepping stones rather than walls. Join Duane as he shares some surprising thoughts about why you unconsciously sabotage your own success, and what it takes to move through these blocks and achieve what you really want.

We will be holding a draw for Clearmind Currency at this event.

The Awakening

Clearmind International's Awakening (Personal Growth Workshop)

The Awakening is an invitation to a new experience of your self, your life, your friends, family and the world. We investigate the spiritual dilemma that underlies the psychological drama of our lives. The Awakening is a creative, empowering, process-oriented weekend, where we focus on relinquishing a thought system based on fear in favour of one based on love. [Read More]

Next Advanced Workshop

The Edge
April 10 - 12, 2015
Vancouver, Canada

The Edge walks us to, and exposes, those things that we attach ourselves to and which we are convinced hold the key to our happiness. This is a workshop that focuses on healing addictions and attachments, which are often not so obvious as an addiction to drugs, alcohol or cigarettes. What your ego holds so dear may be work, fame, relationships, sex, power, money, food, or even spirituality. The list is long.

The Edge is tailored to meet the cry of the soul buried underneath our preoccupation with attachments, waiting to be remembered. Many who have taken this workshop have marked this as the turning point in healing the insidious, often unconscious nature of addictive behaviours. Letting go leads to discovering the freedom inherent in a life lived in the present.

What PRAC Students Say

"You know we wouldn't be where we are today without Clearmind. We had the best Christmas so far... unspoken family rules are increasingly becoming redundant as they come to light and are exposed. More smiles, light hearted openness, eye contact, basically love is in the mix more openly... And all this only half-way into year 2 of PRAC... I would not be without PRAC for anything in the world."
