It's Your Wonderful Life

Duane and Catherine O'Kane

Duane and Catherine are offering the community a special gift this December: a three hour mini-workshop!

Most of us are in pursuit of something: something we don't have already, and that we believe would improve the quality of our lives. What this thing is varies from person to person; it can be anything from more money, a better body, a relationship (or a better one), to more self-awareness. We focus on what life will be like in the future, when we have this thing. At times we feel good about working our way towards it, and at times we feel bad looking at our lives through the void of what we believe isn't there.

However, the experience we crave cannot be had in the future. It is through a radical acceptance of every aspect of our current circumstances that we discover what we want was there all along. Join Catherine and Duane in this interactive mini-workshop as they reveal how happiness can be found in the last place we look.

Cost is $20 at the door, but you can participate at no cost by downloading and printing the PDF ticket below (or just bringing your phone with the PDF ticket on it). This is a great opportunity to bring your friends for a personal experience of a Clearmind workshop.

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

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]

Join us at the next Awakening, and see what possibilities await you!

Next Advanced Workshop

Men and Miracles
November 28 to 30, 2014
Vancouver, Canada

This powerful workshop helps men re-discover who they truly are and redefine what it means to be a man in today's world.

Many men carry a collective guilt for the perceived sins of their fathers and other men throughout history. Beneath this mask of guilt is the beautiful essence of man waiting to be remembered for what he truly is. By gaining experiential knowledge of who we really are, we allow ourselves to flow through life with ease. From this place, we have something meaningful and authentic to give to those around us.

Women and Wonder
November 28 to 30, 2014
Vancouver, Canada

Held simultaneously with, but separately from, Men and Miracles, this workshop is designed to help women experience the essence of who they really are.

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."

Holly Jolly Winter Folly

Date: Saturday, December 13th, 2014
Time: 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm
Location: Springbrooke Retreat Centre

Join us as Clearmind celebrates the holiday season!

We welcome you, your family and friends to the annual "Holly Jolly Winter Folly" and silent auction. Come together and enjoy an afternoon of connection, fun and friends!

There is something for everyone. Great food, a bake sale, fabulous holiday shopping at the silent auction, and you can try the annual polar bear swim if you dare!

Here is just a taste of the items we have at our silent auction:
  • A weekend getaway
  • Limited edition art work
  • Counselling sessions
  • Memorabilia
  • Soaps, candles, giftware
We look forward to seeing you, your family and friends!

We are currently looking for items for the auction that will go toward tuition relief for Clearmind students that couldn't otherwise afford to take our courses. As a community, we raised over $5000 last year (Duane and Catherine match the proceeds every year). We are encouraging everyone not only to donate, but to ask around in your network to see if anyone you know wants to contribute as it is also an opportunity to promote a local business. You could ask your hairdresser, your chiropractor, your local spa or restaurant or your friend who has a new start up. If you have anything to donate to the silent auction please email me at

We are also going to have a Christmas Bake sale this year, so if you feel called to donate some goodies, please bring along with a suggested price for the baked goodies.
