Befriending The Pause Expanding Our Capacity for Calm, Connection, and Compassion


"Between stimulus and response, there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom." —Viktor Frankl

Join meditation and yoga teacher Jillian Pransky and explore the space between stimulus and response, where you can leave behind your habitual solutions and cultivate a living relationship with the present moment. As you learn to consciously relax into this space—the pause—and grow more grounded and present, you can open to a renewed sense of clarity, wisdom, and wholeheartedness. Most importantly, you feel more connected, which changes the way you respond and connect with others and the world around you. 

Through slow yoga, relaxation, metta-meditation, contemplation, and mindful walks in nature,off-the-mat awareness practices, and more, you will

  • Listen deeply and pause mindfully
  • Grow more grounded, open, and present 
  • Restore connection with yourself and others in a supportive community 
  • Respond calmly, clearly, wisely  
  • Experience the feeling of interconnectedness with the world around you 
  • Engage more fully and expansively, compassionately in life. 

Return home with a compassionate practice that draws you back to the present over and over again, restoring your sense of deep connection.
