about - pause Retreat

We are in a never ending race, the race for success, the race for family, the race for being accepted. Somehow being healthy became a race, even being more spiritual became a race! “Do you meditate? How long?” We are in constant competition with the world and no matter how much we obtain, we always feel like there is something missing. Yet, when was the last time we stopped and asked ourselves, why are we running in the first place? We were taught that resting is not part of the equation of success. “Work hard, play hard” or “cant stop, wont stop.” In this constant state of motion, we inevitably sacrifice the most important relationship of our lives – the one with ourselves. What if you had time to CULTIVATE that relationship? What would happen if you could just take a break solely for you? Who would you be if you had a moment to reassess yourself?




pause Retreats is a digital content platform and event production company focused on all things wellness. We curate both online and in-person retreats, bringing together top industry teachers (who we call our pause unicorns) from a variety of crafts. Our goal is to provide an accessible and flexible method for anyone, anywhere to learn and retain tools to achieve self alignment, resilience, and a deeper connection to self. Mastering these states will lead to a happier, healthier and more fulfilled wellbeing. 

All we ask is that you commit to taking a short pause from your daily routine and practice the various lessons taught in our specially designed wellness retreats. 

pause is the vision of Sharoni Rotberg. Through her curated online and in-person retreats, she provides practical tools to help you in the daily race. From mindfulness and personal growth tools to cleansing retreats and body movements, pause retreats offers a paved trail to live in full alignment and connect to your mind, body and soul.
