Sometimes we have conversations and read books that sit with us for a lifetime. Kim Colegrove and her book, Mindfulness for Warriors fit into that category for me. Having been a suicidal teen, how Kim got to the place of turning her mess into a message sits deeply on my heart. If you want to watch and listen to inspiring story of how one turns their mess into a message, this is YOUR seed! Her work with first responders in navigating trauma so it doesn’t turn into losing them to soon is simply inspiring.
Who is Kim Colegrove?
Kim Colegrove is the author of Mindfulness for Warriors and the founder of Pause First Academy—an organization that provides online and in-person wellness and resilience training for society’s warriors, protectors, guardians, and healers.
Kim is an experienced keynote speaker, and in 2022 she was awarded the Mid-America CIT (Critical Incident Team) Teacher of the Year award.
Colegrove is the widow of a first responder who died by suicide. She previously taught mindfulness in corporate settings such as Garmin International, United Way, Department of Veterans Affairs, and The National Court Reporters Association. After her husband’s death, Kim turned her attention to helping warriors learn how to cope with stress and trauma.
