Support Centre - Groups

Blue RibbonWe recognize that life can be overwhelming sometimes. As we struggle in our daily lives, we often forget we don't have to do it alone. Clearmind International offers you several ways to stay connected and supported whether face-to-face or online, including individual online or face-to-face counselling as well as online or face-to-face support groups facilitatied by registered, insured counselling therapists. To ensure continuity, most support groups are 'closed' for segments of time (i.e. January-June) and then re-open for members to join or leave. For individual counselling, please see our Counselling Therapist Directory. For support groups, see below:

Relationship & Couples Groups (solo, single, in relationship, online or face to face)

Everyone struggles in relationship at one point or another in their lives. For that reason, our relationship-oriented groups have been in existence for over a decade. There are several different kinds of relationship groups (for couples who have taken the Awakening, for singles who have taken the Awakening and for those who haven't taken an Awakening). There are approximately 6 relationship support groups running at any given time and they meet every two to four weeks on various nights, usually for 2.5 to 3 hours. There are groups for people who have never taken an Awakening that introduce participants to the Clearmind process, solo people (who are either single, or whose partner isn’t ready, willing or able to attend), couples groups, face-to-face groups and also online (Skype Group or Adobe Classroom). They are done in shifts: September - December and January - June, with drop in sessions during the summer.

Facilitators: Karen Goodfellow, MTC, CST, CFA and Herman Commandeur, RTC
 
Dates: Drop In for singles or couples - one Monday a month

Karen and Herman have been facilitating the Clearmind Relationship and Couples groups since 2010 and Continuing Connections for the year or two prior to that. Whether face-to-face or online, they noticed that a common thread throughout the years was around the area of boundaries. In Clearmind terms, they were either a hard line in the sand or a total collapse of a boundary; the Clearmind framework is that they be heart-connected and healthy instead. They also noticed that the 3 hours during groups was not enough to even scratch the surface so they developed a series of “Heart-Connected Boundaries” workshops for anyone who has attended an Awakening. They have also added a new one for those who haven’t attended the Awakening in the hopes that you can be introduced to the Clearmind framework.
