Why do we pause? We value mindful interaction & inner connection

Mindful pause / everyday mindfulness

What is it that brings us together here? We value being thoughtful, mindful, attuned. We want to respond rather than react impulsively to what life presents us with. We want our life to make sense, but not just in an abstract way: We also pay attention to what feels right.

The people who are involved with Active Pause as readers and contributors come from many different backgrounds, such as:
- people who are trained in Focusing
- people who have a mindfulness practice
- people who strive for emotional self-regulation
- practitioners in experiential forms of psychotherapy
- artists and creative people

While we have different perspectives and different practices, there is one thing we have in common: We value mindful interaction and inner connection, and we literally make time for it in our everyday life. We pause.

This may just entail the slightest of pauses, barely noticeable if at all. It's just taking a tiny moment to interrupt routine. Most often, the "aha moment" is an ever-so-slight shift, not a dramatic change. It's not much, and it's a lot: We give ourselves a chance to have a fresh look at what life brings us, moment by moment. To have a sense of our own engagement in our own life. To be mindful rather than mindless.
