This is where it all started...

Mindfulness for Warriors, by Pause First Academy founder, Kim Colegrove.

After losing her husband to suicide, Kim Colegrove began a journey of discovery about first responder stress and trauma. In this book, she combines a candid memoir with powerful interviews of other first responders, and offers a practical, introductory guide to meditation and mindfulness. Kim is working to bring hope and healing to first responders around the world.
