Would you love to join the Pause team?! 🙌


At Pause, our mission is to help people become mindful leaders in their personal lives, workplaces, and communities. Our modern world is defined by busyness, digital overwhelm, and anxiety. As a result, most of us are living life on autopilot. We’re distracted, reactive, disconnected from each other, and have little energy left for wholehearted living. Simply put, there’s a better way to live.

It’s up to each of us to:

✓ Pause the rat race. ✓ Create space for what matters most. ✓ Develop a deep inner reservoir of resilience, love, and wholeness. ✓ Make conscious choices that help heal our world.


As we individually commit to this journey of becoming mindful leaders, we are collectively shaping the more beautiful and uplifting world we know is possible.
