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. The ways we explain our pain are more a result of our lack of real relationships. We don’t know how to truly connect, and the ways we go about attempting to do so, often contribute to the problem. Join us as 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.

Duane and Catherine O’Kane are Registered Clinical Counsellors, workshop facilitators, and entertaining public speakers who have over 60 combined years of experience in the helping profession. Duane and Catherine co-founded Clearmind International Institute Inc., a Vancouver based international company that provides personal therapeutic and professional programs throughout Europe and North America. They have helped thousands of people discover the power of connection and how to ‘love out loud.’

REAL: The Power of Authentic Connection is a helpful primer for all those on the healing path, and for those who seek to guide others towards wholeness.

Duane and Catherine are exceptionally great at helping each of us find ourselves, our path, and teach[ing] us how to follow it. It’s not easy, it’s not light….it’s heavy stuff but it works. It’s REAL.

Randy Bachman

REAL: The Power of Authentic Connection is the first book from Duane and Catherine and is the culmination of the couple's over 25 years experience in helping people through relationship struggles. Practicing what they preach, the couple first took on the challenges of learning authentic connection within their own marriage and have since taught thousands of others through their founding of Clearmind – an international personal development and counselling school. REAL reached best seller status in three categories the first day of it's release on Amazon Canada, and is their latest endeavor in spreading that message worldwide.

The Clearmind International community is made up of consciously connected people from all walks of life who have chosen to aspire to lives of honesty and integrity. As such, it is also a social and supportive network of different but like-minded individuals working towards positive change in their lives and with others. Now in its third decade, Clearmind International has been attracting individuals who are interested in deepening connections and evolving relationships - with themselves, important relationships at home and work, and their respective communities.
