About The Teacher

I'm the former Clear Sky Chair, a certified Mindfulness teacher, Dharma teacher, and an IBM Executive in Toronto.

Through 15 years of teaching meditation and mindfulness, alongside an active career working all over the world, I’ve learnt a lot about an integrated spiritual path.  With a Ph.D. in philosophy in my pocket, I was gung ho to join a monastery until I met my root teachers Doug Duncan and Catherine Pawasarat in Japan in 2001, who turned my views upside down and encouraged me to grow and contribute at the busy end of life!

A founding member of Clear Sky in 2004, I’m amazed at the power that working together in compassionate service has for enriching and widening spiritual growth.  Combined with a dynamic relationship and a challenging career, I have fun with a wide-ranging and holistic approach to spiritual growth.

      Learn How to Sustain a Spiritual Practice with a Great Teacher

    I have had the wonderful opportunity to take the Ignite Your Spiritual Life course offered by Duncan Cryle and Karen McAllister. Duncan's infectious smile and good humour, and his deep insights into the benefits and challenges of maintaining a spiritual practice in the midst of a busy life, make studying with him a real opportunity for growth.

      Teacher at Clear Sky Meditation and Study Foundation

    I have known Duncan professionally for many years. As an associate teacher at Clear Sky Center, he brings a learned and professional approach to organizing, prioritizing, and utilizing systems that has helped the center thrive. To his co-teaching of the "Ignite Your Spiritual Life" course, in which I have participated, he brings laughter and practical approaches to students in a nuts and bolts way that is readily applicable to their individual circumstances. He supports beings with a light-hearted and thoughtful approach to growth and development in a sincere and compassionate manner.

      A way with words

    Duncan excels at bringing profound teachings into relatable language and meeting people where they are.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

To find peace and renewal while going through a huge change in my life. Empty nest and the end of a 27 year marriage all at once. Susan
