Editorial Reviews


“This is a book that will save lives. Mindfulness for Warriors is a work of major importance that offers practical approaches to self-care and serenity for our first responders. Our military veterans, firefighters, police, dispatchers, paramedics, doctors, and nurses are at the front lines of our society and a vital part of every community. Kim Colegrove's marvelous book is an essential read for these brave people.” ―Louise Harmon, author of Happiness from A to Z

“The pain of trauma that first responders suffer from is finally being recognized, and Mindfulness for Warriors shows the path to healing. Kim Colegrove shares her heart-wrenching story of the loss of her husband to suicide, why it happened, and effective keys to recovery through mindfulness meditation. Mindfulness for Warriors is a welcome guide not only for first-responders and their loved ones, but anyone who suffers from trauma.” ―Rev. Connie L. Habash, LMFT, author of Awakening from Anxiety: A Spiritual Guide to Living a More Calm, Confident, and Courageous Life

Mindfulness for Warriors is an outstanding book I will be giving it to a lot of people. My father was a Marine who came back from war and became a fireman. I loved how brave Dad was, but I also sensed, behind his tough exterior, he was hiding a lot of pain. He was a stoic who forged on doing his very important work but at a high personal cost. He and so many like him serve our communities and deal with extreme stress on a daily basis, often without any way to process the pain and PTSD they are suffering. Kim Colegrove's book is an invaluable tool to help the helpers. Her mindfulness practices and meditation techniques offer much respite, relief, and calm to anyone who picks up this book.” ―Becca Anderson, author of Prayers for Hard Times and Real Life Mindfulness

“Kim Colegrove survived unspeakable grief, and rather than becoming bitter and broken herself, she honed a fierce and relentless compassion that seeks well-being for those who protect and serve. This book, and the PauseFirst Project, offer accessible tools for everyday use. In its pages, you will find solid strategies and proven practices for coping with stress and trauma in work and in life. Mindfulness for Warriors is a must-read for veterans, first responders, and all who walk the way of the warrior.” ―Rev. Roxanne Pendleton, MDiv, CYT 200, advisor, trauma informed care, and author of Laughing Again: A Survivor's Guide to Healing Depression

In Mindfulness for Warriors, Kim Colegrove offers a sincere invitation to look at what is behind the trauma carried by so many. With evidence-based mindfulness practices to alleviate suffering highlighted from the individuals who have benefited from such practices, Mindfulness for Warriors shows what we absolutely know to be true: you can heal yourself. You can heal your life. Slow and steady like the breath, one movement at a time, Colegrove provides a genuine roadmap to reconnect with your body, heart, and mind―to begin the journey to developing resilience and cultivating mental and emotional peace. ―Bridgitte Jackson-Buckley, author of The Gift of Crisis: How I Used Meditation to Go From Financial Failure to a Life of Purpose

“While many of us might not consider ourselves warriors. In truth, we are. Especially if, as the author writes, ‘your life or work involves helping, saving, and rescuing others….’ From time to time, we become rescuers for our kids, partners, friends, family, or co-workers. This groundbreaking book, therefore, is a must-read since it touches all of us. It not only documents the lives of others who needed help, but it also provides very grounding solutions for dealing with and overcoming life’s challenges.” ―Allen Klein, author of Embracing Life After Loss

“Kim Colegrove has one audacious goal―to save the first responders who put their own lives on the line for others every day. Her powerful new book, Mindfulness for Warriors, embodies her passion. Through candid memoir, insightful interviews, and informed advice, Mindfulness for Warriors offers practical tools for first responders and the people who love them. Colegrove artfully blends her account of the heart-wrenching loss of her husband with her wisdom from decades of meditation practice and her hope to find a solution to the trauma dynamic that rips first responders from the world. Colegrove’s firsthand experience watching lives change for the better authorizes her to make this bold claim: mindfulness can save lives. She’s seen it and tells us how it’s done. Hers is a message you won’t want to miss.” ―Nita Sweeney, meditation teacher, writing coach, and award-winning author of Depression Hates a Moving Target

“According to legend, the Buddha was asked, ‘What have you gained from meditation?’ Buddha replied, ‘Nothing.’ Then he added, ‘However, let me tell I what I have lost: anger, anxiety, depression, insecurity, fear of old age and death.’ Who wouldn't want to lose those negative emotions? And certainly, first responders are most deserving of peace and freedom through practicing meditation and mindfulness. Kim Colegrove’s book is a rich resource for those seeking serenity in the face of trauma, violence, and chaos.” ―BJ Gallagher, coauthor of Your Life Is Your Prayer

“A book that will save lives and a book about those who save lives. Mindfulness for Warriors is an empowering read that examines first responders' duties and curates tools and techniques to apply to the lives of those whom have faced trauma on the front lines. The author's own intimate story helps to realize the importance of addressing traumatic experiences and implementing meditative and mindful practices to better cope in their everyday lives. Relevant at the moment and important for so many humans, even beyond those that are first responders, this book is a must-read that will help to reduce stress, build resilience, and empower you to live your happiest life.” ―Belles and Rebelles

About the Author

Kim Colegrove is a veteran meditator and speaker with over 40 years of experience. She is the creator of PAUSE15 Meditation℠ and Learn to Pause℠ Mindfulness Training, and the founder of The PauseFirst Project: Mindfulness for First Responders.

Colegrove’s expertise in meditation has benefited individuals and corporations across the country, including Garmin International, The National Court Reporters Association, Department of Veterans Affairs, United Way, and others.

In 2014, Kim lost her husband David to suicide, less than three months after he retired from a 30-year law enforcement career. She created The PauseFirst Project to honor David’s memory, and to help other first responders cope with stress and trauma.

She partnered with Major Darren Ivey of the Kansas City Missouri Police Department in 2017 and began offering a 4-hour block of mindfulness training to law enforcement professionals and other first responders. The course has been very well-received and Colegrove now speaks at conferences and offers her course to first responder organizations nationwide.

Kim is a contributing writer for In Public Safety, an American Military University (AMU) sponsored website. In August, her In Public Safety article, "My Husband’s Suicide: Recognizing Predictors of Police Suicide," was published on PoliceOne online, which boasts over 600,000 subscribers and over 2 million monthly visitors. Previously, Colegrove was a regular contributing writer for Kansas City Health and Wellness magazine.

Colegrove has combined many years of meditation experience with her background in corporate mindfulness and her own personal story of tragedy and loss to create an informative and inspirational book that is a must-read for first responders and their families.
