Introduction to Practicing the Pause
Welcome to Practicing the Pause, a self-care community of practice brought to you by the University of Wisconsin – Madison Division of Extension Community Educators.
Practicing the Pause is a weekly, 30-minute virtual space to practice a variety of techniques to calm your mind and body, decrease stress, and increase self-awareness and resiliency. We’ll practice holding space while also practicing skills such as deep breathing, guided imagery, gentle stretching, etc.
We will gather every Thursday morning, from 8:30-9:00 AM. You are free to join us when you are able.
