The Ripple

Most of our struggles in life are relationship struggles. Depression, anxiety, mental and physical illness, low self-esteem, high divorce rates, and all the many ways we explain our pain are the result of a lack authentic connection. We hide, pretend, and defend instead of being real. The Ripple Blog offers a powerful perspective on how to transform yourself and all your relationships by practicing emotional responsibility.
Catherine and Duane O’Kane are the founders of Clearmind international.   It is Duane’s passion and belief that all that we strive for is held hostage in the middle of every moment, every relationship and every situation. Clearmind was birthed from these principles and continues to evolve.   If you ask Catherine how Clearmind began, she says our mission statement “Love out Loud” sums it all up. Anyone can feel wonderfully inspired, but if it isn’t acted upon, it doesn’t have a life.
