REAL: The Power of Authentic Connection
Duane and Catherine O'Kane

Stop trying to be happy and discover the greater joy of being fully alive through a deeper level of authentic, vulnerable connection.

Most of our struggles in life are relationship struggles. Depression, anxiety, mental illness, low self-esteem, high divorce rates, and all the myriad ways we explain our pain are more a result of lack of real relationships. We don’t know how to connect, and the ways we go about attempting to do so often contribute to the problem. We hide, pretend and defend instead of being real. Connection is the doorway to being fully alive, and it is only one vulnerable step away in any given moment.

In this talk, Duane and Catherine take you through an intimate journey using examples from their personal lives, revealing a road map back to a fully connected life for all of those who have suffered in isolation.

Duane and Catherine O’Kane are Registered Clinical Counsellors, international workshop facilitators and speakers. They have been in the counselling training and personal development business for over 40 years combined.

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

Clearmind International's Awakening (Personal Growth Workshop)

The Awakening invites you to a new experience of your self, your life, your loved ones and the world. We investigate the spiritual dilemma beneath the psychological drama of our lives. The Awakening is a creative, empowering weekend, where we focus on relinquishing a thought system based on fear for one based on love. [Read More]

The Relationship Awakening invites you to a new experience of your self and your partner. This workshop is almost identical to the Awakening, but is intended for couples, with a focus on relationship dynamics. [Read More]

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

The Rude Awakening
July 17 - 30, 2016

The Rude Awakening is an intense, passionate and exciting two week journey toward a new definition and experience of what true leadership means for each person in their sphere of influence. We are constantly teaching those around us what we believe about ourselves, others, and the world, and more often than not we complain about not 'getting' the results that we want. In this leadership training, we accept responsibility for the inherent power we have, and make a choice about 'giving' those very things that we want proactively with family, friends, and finally the world.

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."
