We had the good fortune of connecting with Hope Price and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Hope, how does your business help the community?

Pause within is teaching people what it means to be fully present with oneself in any given moment of life. As the individual becomes aware of their being, they understand their divine role in all of creation. My purpose with Pause within is to encourage people to take time with themselves for intentional healing and release. Everyone has a unique way of processing their emotions and therefore a different outward expression. The healing intention of my work is to blend Hope with practicality by taking those goals and wishes that people have for themselves and making a unique plan of action. I truly believe and have become a physical embodiment that with a shared intention to become, there is a force that follows. When we take the time as individuals to check in with ourselves and know our own energy, we create ripple effects of awareness within societies. As a person that can easily read the energy of a room, person, or circumstance, I know that people carry a plethora of emotions daily without any clue. Pause Within is helping the community by encouraging safe space for healing and release so that we may all exist as our highest and most aligned self in each season of life.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?

I was put on this path because I have spent the last few years of my life journeying within both the physical and spiritual realms and was pulled into major self reflection by the universe. Through this experience, I came to understand our ability to manifest through intention. What I had yet to realize is that time spent in stillness would become a beautiful journey of balancing hope with intention. I now lead guided meditations as a way to help one connect with their emotions, experiences and own knowing. The first Pause Within Meditation Retreat took place in Joshua Tree, California in September of 2021. This is a dream I began manifesting in September of 2020 and was a beautiful experience to have come into fruition. I was able to experience first hand how life changing it can be to take people away from their routine and have them exist in nature to allow her to become our reflection. All it takes is a pause from the “go,go,go” of life to remember your connection, on a deeper level, to all that is around you. Keep and eye out for 2022 retreat dates via Instagram!

I also encourage this release, through poetry. My intention in being this vulnerable, is to show that all it takes is awareness of who you have been and are, to grow into the person you are meant to be. My first poetry book, Gypsies Diary was released in 2020 and is available on my website only. A dear friend of mine, Toni, & I actually hand bind each book. I will leave a clip here of the prelude for a sneak peak.

in 2022, I will be releasing a book on intention with a journal to go along. Hopefully, this will be a tool that all are able to utilize as we release through the different seasons. It is now my goal to simply understand more about life and myself so I can truly embody the essence of #PAUSEWITHIN.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
WE WOULD EAT AT KINDRED EVERY SINGLE DAY. Kindred is my favorite vegan restaurant in San Diego, hands down. We would then visit my favorite bookstore, Verbatim, and enjoy our reads at Sunset Cliffs. The avocado toast at Meraki Cafe is a must as well so breakfast the next day would take place there in North Park. We would have to attend yoga Maci to experience deeply rooted yin practices and then take a dip in the ocean. My choice would be Ocean Beach (especially on Wednesday’s) because my two amazing friends Jazmin & Gabe have a beautiful stand of creations that I love choosing from! These are just a few of my favorites to do but definitely the top of my list!

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?

I would love to give a shout out to my mentor and spiritual mother, Nita all the way in London with SOHT. The energetic guidance along this journey within, not only allowed me to realize my ability to heal within myself but my gift to be a channel of energy flow for other as well. Please check out her website > worldloveon.com.

I also want to thank all of those in the last year that have given me a platform to speak my truth and share my story. It was only through stepping into my power for those moments that Iwas truly able to exist fully in my purpose.

Shout out to my parents for being willing to heal WITH me as we both grow and become more of ourselves. Also to those that stand as a mirror for me in my daily life, I love you. Thank YOU for healing, thank you for becoming, for listening, and for supporting me through this journey of healing.
