We can build the habit of taking a few moments out of each day to turn our awareness inward. The practices that restore body, mind, and connection to spirit take time, and they ask us to create a bit of quiet and some internalization." -- Nicole TaylorA Joyful Pause is structured to make this easy for you to do.
