Happy 4th July, 
May you be continue to pursue your happiness as the pursuing is the happiness and ultimately your well of being. My pursuit is ongoing never reaching any destination but the stops along the way are filled with excitement, collaborations and lots of laughs.

Thank you for your support of the Heal Documentary there will be an advanced screening benefiting one of my favorite charities here in Los Angeles so please stay tuned as it is just the beginning of a very powerful timely social movement.

Be kind to yourself and take some time for you this month as we are moving towards a powerful Solar Eclipse in August. Listen to yourself and what your needs are by putting them to the top of the list, if you need some downtime - take it, if you need some silence - split for a while (go to Idyllwild), if you need some mind declutter get into doing than thinking (learn guitar, go paddle boarding, learn to surf, learn to paint) Play and stop analyzing. Knowing your own temperature gauge is an important aspects as it controls our temper, our temperament and the body's inflammation. As emotions gets overheated and overworked the tipping point is inflammation created in the physical body. Inflammation has many labels in dis-ease just pick your poison but it is the knowing of when you are in flaming and fanning those flames of your own system, your own internal chemistry and your own dis-harmony. Bow out for a while, chill out and maybe even cop out of the people pleasing as the Solar Eclipse is around the corner. It's going to be giving us that tipping point of six months of introspection til January 2018. These are the moment when the caterpillar metamorphosis into the butterfly but I am not going to kid you that chrysalis period is no joke. For the great butterfly to form a complete de-structuring of the caterpillar in rapid cell division is required to form the legs, eyes, wings, antennae - This is going to be your cocoon period to transmute whatever you need in the transformation and I am looking forward to seeing your magnificence. 

As part of you sharing your magnificence I would like to include five volunteers to share their EFT stories in my new book. Please email me for more information or to discuss in more detail. Soffeah and I will be working on improving the website to bring you more audio meditation, affirmations and brain scrambling nonsense to cease the thinking and participate in your doing.
Love and Light


Thank you to so many of you that drove and flew into Sedona for our incredible world premiere of Heal. I am incredibly blessed to have been involved with such a powerful project and hard-hitting and empowering message all at the same time. I know many of you are eager to see the documentary and do please sign up on the Heal Dcoumentary's website and keep updated on the Pause in Joy on FB as we will inform you of all of the advanced screenings in LA and NY and the general release from there. This message is a social movement and I would like to thank Scott Bentley for putting up his initial reaction on Indi and his facebook page of the effect it had on him. Thank you to all of you that are sharing your stories as the more we hear of people's secret healing then the more it inspires others. Fortunately I see it all the time but it is not my place to share someone's journey but it is unfortunate that those miracles I see are tucked away and not spoken of and now is the time to shout them from the rooftop. 


  Our Summer Reiki Circle  
 Saturday July 15th
Please email for location or join our FB PAGE  Like us on Facebook  
The energy we will be tapping into will be the MORE energy of the peacock. More vision, more allowance, more possibilities, more eyes on us and more joy...How much more can you take?  This circle is to prepare us for the beauty of our journey towards Summer Solstice and calibrate the next months to a higher frequency of abundance, power and creativity. 

Our Reiki Circle is for ALL whether you practice Reiki or not to join in community and be stronger together as we grow, expand and exude from within. It is an opportunity to plug in to a conscious community and use what you already know, whether it is the teachings of Abraham Hicks, Louise Hay, Marianne Williamson or your own practice; this gathering is a sacred event where we get to work on the subtle energies.
Reiki Tuning and Joy Circle will focus on re-coding or activating the code that lies within you without the auto-safe of the ego kicking in to sabotage or block you in a myriad of ways. We will be activating more Joy in your life, more space for you to receive what you need as we calibrate you to Nature's vast grid the ocean of consciousness. Each tuning will reactivate your bodies natural ability to heal itself and natural ability for you to achieve what you vision in life. Each circle produces an experience of its own special energetic vibration, everyone brings their own uniqueness that can result in epiphanies, a deep sense of connection to your higher self as well as the ability to stay longer pausing in your Joy. We are here to bring forth the space to harness more Joy in our life but first we must learn to breathe into receiving it. Please bring your symbols that will represent what you wish to send energy to for focus and intents, such things as projects, photos of loved ones - passed or present, pets photos, business cards, head-shots, photographs, vision boards that you are out of alignment with to have a visual symbol to focus your intent. This Circle will experience the sound of the Golden Gate as we tune our highest vibration to the celestial heavens opening to us.   
Pause in Joy is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

Starting Sunday July 17th, 7pm
 Salon of creative connection

For the next four weeks there will be a gathering of the faithful to focus on our active faith in our life whether than be in a project, a new business, faith of wellness, conquering cancer or just a curiosity of exploring the art of faith.

For me, faith is an active creative process always bringing me back to my channel of knowing, of guidance and of courage. My only job is to keep my channel clear of debris, of interference and of course dou
bt! Th e power of the mind to visualize and create reality is no longer a topic of debate but what is open to discussion is the collective use of that visioneering, that laser focus to see the end result while staying open to any new forms revealing themselves.

For thousands of years faith has been co-
opt to religion but what if faith is a more personal journey of discovery. What if faith is an inside job and the jewel in our pursuit of happiness as we uncover the magic held in the greatest mystery of our times. Lets journey together to reveal the art of our faith in who we are, what we believe in and the treasures we have to contribute to the world.

This exploration may take the form of discussions, insights, visioneering, soundbaths, Emotional Freedom Tapping cir
cles, meditation, breathwork, accessing the consciousness and anything else that decides to be our revelations.
Sunday 7pm, D onation
Studio City

Online Zoom meeting.

Be the change you want to see in the World starts with you!

This healing, spiritual path, journey, way I have created is based on the Hero's Journey to know thyself be true. As it is only once we clean our own personal individual energy that we connect collectively in oneness for the betterment of humanity. So why should you bother doing any spiritual work? 
Well for one, you didn't come here to be an accountant, bra sales person or mechanic; you came here to bring forward the treasure that lies within you and perhaps you don't even know what that is but don't you think it is worth exploring, because I do!

For me to make you, your own Hero I'm going to push you, be the bad guy, be the good guy, be the villain, be the loved one, be whatever you decide you want me to be for you to reach for your greatness. Ever notice how people go around looking for Guru's to disappoint them and then they find the ones that do disappoint them, bingo you were right and got what you wanted. Now what, did the ego win another delay to do what you need to do when you need to do it? That's just another barricade to loving, devoting, giving yourself over - You see a Guru doesn't do it to you, a Guru is only there to shine light on what you are not seeing, being and ultimately cease your game of hide and seek with yourself. Peek a boo, I see you and that can be scary, relieving and vulnerable - Ready to be free?

Pause in Joy Reiki Books available prior to class. Reiki III and Masters will be discussed with Patti directly due to the work needed to prepare.  
If any of these dates do not work for your schedule please email and we can sync our calendars and get you going.  Reiki Master Teacher Training, please email for appointment to discuss application.

Reiki One teaches awakens that they are energetic beings having a physical experience.

The possibilities unveiled reveal a new world with new creative potential liberated from fears, anxiety, procrastination, undisciplined apathy and jealousy. Each student has a different journey as each person's TRUTH is revealed to them uniquely. The path of living your fullest life is in your own hands as the self-healing modality is only a small part of a larger journey to the THINKING problem that plagues society.

Reiki II is at least 30 days post Reiki I as students know when they are ready for this level as a specific aspect will rise from the consciousness telling me you are ready.  This level of Reiki at Pause in Joy is known by students' as the #gamechanger. It is for students wishing to forge a deeper connection to this powerful energy by clearing past/present/future fears and limitations and connect to their own inner listener, guidance and live a full rich abundant life..

Reiki II is considered professional practitioner level. You will learn to use three separate Reiki energy streams not only via symbols but acute awareness of vibration. Symbols only focus your intent but it is the reservoir of energy behind a symbol that is your connection. The symbols connect you fast to the unified field, while another calms and stills the emotions and lastly, to send energy through time-space.

As this level is practitioner level, Patti believes to heal yourself or others one must start cleaning your own house unresolved issues will only come to the surface to amplify their release. Reiki II unveils an awareness that has no room for blame, or excuses but identifies addictions, emotional tranquilizers and all personal distractions that have impeded your evolution to your personal greatness.

You will learn to liberate yourself from eons of THINKING small, thinking in self preservation and most of all thinking in lack from a fear based mentality.  As we sending energy to every year in your life the transformation will reunite you to the person you always knew you had the potential to be.

Current Pause in Joy Reiki II Students:

Reiki III : The Conscience Becomes Conscious

Los Angeles 
July 12-13th, 2 days w/Patti Penn 9am - 6pm 

Long Beach, w/Soffeah
TBD, 2 days 

Reiki III is a future trajectory from Reiki II as the patterns, predictability and comfort zones are dissolved. As each Reiki II student meticulously chose personal milestones to send energy back to in Reiki II these milestones were limitations to a personal vantage point invested in the story and identity held with it. Reiki III, is an energetic experiential journey of no linear absolutes but transforming into a multidimensional journey to create future possibilities from no preordained past patterns.

Reiki III is the practitioner level of Reiki Masters allowing students the use the energy of the Master symbol without FULLY INTENTIONALLY COMMITTING to teach. Reiki III embodies a level of seva to the community to GIVE and partake in Reiki Circle with no personal attachment to the fruits of your action. A commitment to participant in community Reiki Circles for six months gives you the opportunity to experience holding the space for 6-8 individuals within the attunement process and calibrating to the energy you are tapping in to.

In preparation for Reiki III, one month before class, two very distinct versions of one life will run in parallel to then melt into one dynamic story. This level all symbols are unveiled, new forms of connection through the sound of the Kotodama, breathwork and physical kriya practices. Your commitment to embraced your TRUTH offers an opportunity for you to PRESENT to the Reiki community a 20-30 minute metaphysical presentation on any subject close to your heart. This presentation is without limits, and is your creative connection to fear, doubt and doing it anyway.

- Changing the story  
- Using the archetypes to transform  
- Creating Visualization Meditations  
- Connecting to Master Symbol  
- Performing and Receiving "Psychic Surgery"  
- Intoning the Kotodama.  
- Learning Healing Attunements  
- Identifying Needs and Wants  
- Your Metaphysical Presentation (20-30mins)  
- Creating your own future possibilities through Creative Vulnerability 

Current Pause in Joy Reiki II Students: 
Reiki Master Teacher

Los Angeles w/Patti

 (All students wishing to be re-attuned or attend for Empowerment please plan for Dec 9th, 3.30-5pm)

Embracing Reiki Master Teacher is part of a final metamorphosis and complete dismantling of programs that keep you separated from Source Energy. Students prepare in advance for this level which is designed specifically for each student to bring them closer to who they are. The final resistance to step into your greatest highest self will unravel through the beginning of the end as truth be told, it has only just begun.

As each Reiki Master conquers, embraces and rises anew so begins the pilgrimage of a destiny unknown before.


Many students have tried an access session with the awareness you are already operating with shifts fast, gives spaciousness for new possibilities and welcomes new abundant joy in your life. Running the electric magnetic energy of the brain while tapping in destroys and uncreates old unknown patterns, stuck programs and points of view is not only powerful but makes tremendous space for new exciting possibilities.

Remaining open to what you don't know?

Allowing to receive more without being closed to the world!

Using your unawareness to create beyond what you know?

Jumping in to the unknown to access passed the fears.

Destroying unknown stories.

Accessing new realms of creativity.

To Access Beyond what you know to the unknown relieving from looped patterns, unawareness, programs created to keep you small. Time to destroy and uncreate the safety of predictability and access the treasures in the unknown but as we all know that takes hitting a wall or just giving up trying to figure it out.

Sessions always available
