Who are we?
We are a conscious company dedicated to practicing and teaching the relationship skills required to have REAL Impact on the world. Now in its third decade, our organization has grown to include an amazing team of connected people who have chosen to aspire to lives of authenticity and emotional responsibility. REAL Connection. REAL You. REAL Impact.
Our founders, Duane O’Kane and Catherine O’Kane, are professional Clinical Counsellors and a husband and wife team whose mission is to accelerate personal evolution through the power of authentic connection. Together they created Clearmind, where they offer the world a range of innovative experiential, educational, psycho-therapeutic programs that harness the power of human connection.
Today, our organization has grown well beyond the founders, to include an amazing team of consciously connecting people who have chosen to aspire to lives of authenticity and emotional responsibility.
