Our Founders

Our founders, Duane O’Kane and Catherine O’Kane, are professional Clincal 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.
