Kim Colegrove’s newest book, Wellness Warrior Style, combines the intimate and valuable warrior interviews her audience loves, with guidance, support, and a robust resource directory. If your profession exposes you to trauma or the trauma of others, this book can help guide you to a healing path and a more balanced life.


“I want you to know your book saved my life.” This is a quote by a first responder who was attending one of Kim Colegrove’s workshops. That sentence sparked a revised and enhanced re-release of the book, Mindfulness for Warriors. In The Mindfulness for Warriors Handbook, you’ll learn about Keith, the workshop attendee, and you’ll find out how he’s doing today. You’ll also enjoy a robust new resource directory for first responders.


Mindfulness For Warriors. Empowering First Responders to Reduce Stress and Build Resilience

After losing her husband to suicide, Kim Colegrove began a journey of discovery about first responder stress and trauma. In Mindfulness for Warriors, Kim masterfully blends a sincere and candid memoir with powerful interviews and a practical guide to help first responders learn about meditation and mindfulness.


Kim Colegrove’s 21-Day Meditation Jumpstart Journal is designed to help you ease into meditation. Don’t worry if you’re new to meditation, struggle with mental chaos, or have a hard time sitting still! Kim has built in flexibility that allows you to go at your own pace, making it easy for anyone to build a meditation practice that will stick.

  • Kim's class was great! We received so many compliments and several deputies came to talk to me after the presentation. I think our people are beginning to understand that it is ok to feel “not ok” at times, and presenters like Kim are playing a big part in that. I would highly recommend this in-service training.

  • The work Kim and her associates are doing will change the culture of our industry. It won’t happen overnight, but neither did CIT, and look at all the lives we have changed and saved.

  • I continue to do my breathing and meditations and it helps tremendously – immediately relaxes me and gets rid of the ache in my neck. Sleeping better and handling stress better.

  • I have worked with emergency responders for a long time through CISM (Critical Incident Stress Management) and other channels. Kim Colegrove has offered many trainings at Johnson County Mental Health Center, and I believe the work of Pause First can help the mental health professionals and first responders who work so hard to keep us safe and healthy.

  • Kim Colegrove provided a four hour block of training on Meditation and Mindfulness for all of our 200+ employees. She told her story, spoke about the science of stress and trauma and provided instruction on techniques to mitigate some of life’s stressors.

    This class in not just a class for your job, it is a class for your life. I recommend Kim Colegrove and Pause First for not only law enforcement training, but any first responder related field.  She is down to earth and knows how to reach this very critical and suspicious demographic.
