“Navigating the complexities of today’s world requires more than just feeling good on retreat, or using a daily mindfulness app. We have to learn how to embody mindfulness while thinking about our planet’s future or navigating the pressures of daily life.”
-Karen McAllister & Duncan Cryle
In our busy and distracted world it’s hard to keep supportive structures and routines for your well-being, spiritual growth, and resilience. Integrating mindfulness is an online program for anyone who meditates or is on a spiritual journey that teaches how to integrate the healing power of awareness into your daily life, and to build positive conditions to support your clarity, kindness, and wisdom.
& Daily Life
5-6:30pm UK time / 10-11:30am MST
Perhaps you want to strengthen your meditation practice, but find you never quite build consistency. Or you feel your time is too often scattered or wasted, and not spent on what truly matters to you.
Just as a baby needs the support of a womb to grow, you need supportive conditions in your life to truly grow. We call these supportive conditions the spiritual container. It is a way to bring the healing rhythms and the magic of a retreat center and community into your own daily life.
One of the key principles of the spiritual container is creating consciously chosen structures, habits and routines that support your growth.
Join us for a free introductory webinar to explore how to let go and shift unhelpful patterns and habits, to create new supportive structures in your life, and better align your time with the values, community connection and contribution you aspire too.
This webinar will introduce you to the foundational principles in our flagship course, Integrating Mindfulness.
This workshop is based on Clear Sky’s Five Principles of a Supportive Container.

"Mindfulness is like turning on a light in a dark room. The power of awareness lets us see what is there - in our bodies, emotions, mind, workplaces, homes and relationships. Seeing what is there gives us the freedom and the courage to make deeply impactful changes. I've found it helps craft our lives, environment and structures in a way that deeply supports connection and growth".Duncan Cryle
"Deep transformational growth is really supported by having a container, a supportive structure around us. I feel like we're so disembodied today in our technological culture that this is my little kindness to myself in saying 'hello body, you're part of my day.'"Karen McAllister
As Clear Sky’s Chair of the Board and Director of Business Development, I’m passionate about teaching the much-ignored principles of nurturing the factors – like honor your space, structure, and communication – that create the conditions we need to wake up more in daily life. I see how I learned and embodied these principles in my different roles at Clear Sky as the center went from self-starter to second-stage growth. This is what I call “the hands-on way of doing an MBA with a spiritual bottom line!”
In my free time, I love travelling, speaking Portuguese and reading history, architecture and art books.
Through 30+ years of personal practice and 15+ teaching meditation and mindfulness, alongside an active career working all over the world, I’ve learnt a lot about an integrating mindfulness into daily life. As a founding member of Clear Sky in 2004, I’m amazed at the power of a beautiful, natural and dedicated space for supporting people to deepen their meditation and feel more connected. Alongside. my Clear Sky work, I hold a director position at a large software company where I also run a volunteer global mindfulness program to 1000s employees. I was formerly one of the pioneers of IBM’s mindfulness movement. I’m passionate about how mindfulness-based approaches can transform how we live and work together, and be of better service in the world.
"I think this course is a beautiful, utterly grounded and relevant way of making the spiritual life very real and integrated with how we are living every day of our lives. It lays an important foundation for a meditation practice that can actually go somewhere and lead to a well-rounded and truly fulfilling life."Ruth - Embodied in Motion
"It's really, really brought me back home to myself. I found myself in the past very scattered and would put off all the important things, the spiritual aspects of life, the mindfulness and so on, just to blast through my day and get things done, but now I am really taking pause. I still don't get everything done, but I don't get everything done in a much more calm and soulful way."Emmanuel - ActionAid Brasil
