June Events and Happenings

Just to keep you up to date with Heal Documentary as I know so many of you are keen to see it Now - trust me it is worth the wait as both Kelly Noonan Gores vision/directing and Adam Schomer  producing have delivered an awesome piece packed with science, neuroscience, mind power and the human journey of resistance. 

Distribution will be announced shortly for the Fall and screenings in quite a few cities - woohoo!

I am personally excited for this documentary as I witness so many healings, changes, renewals, restorations and complete transformations daily and an imbalance from those silent of their healings, their journeys and new ways to overcome needs to be heard now.

Trust me I know, I am guilty of it myself as Archie nearly died from some mysterious  inflamed
rash then welts all over his body last November, he lost all his hair and would not eat (vet wrote him off). We did tremendous amounts of Reiki and even Ali doing her Reiki III at the time pulled it all out of him with psychic surgery. Turns out it was carbon monoxide poisoning. Archie made a full recovery but being in it you are in the moment and then there is the tendency to dismiss it now because he is "fine." But he wasn't and he made a full recovery!

As for the people I witness on a daily basis pushing through and letting go of years of coping and managing sadness, suicide, sexual trauma, depression, grief, being not enough and blockages you could not even fathom I consider myself fortunate to be their witness of transformation but now its time to share, to tell your stories and inspire others of your journey, your process and your achievements. 

It's not enough to cling to the excuse that people won't get it, let them not get it, let them process it, let them look into it for themselves, let them know there are other options.  


Let go of the shell, let go of what holds you in this frequency and trust your knowing.

Hi there, 
Well lets use a phrase I keep hearing in the media, there's a lot to unpack for this month (thus the late newsletter!)  Take a deep breath, for all the eclipse starting today with a  Leo/Aquarius partial Full Moon Eclipse to spring board us towards Leo's Solar eclipse on August 21st, 9.05am-11.44am PST traversing the continental USA. It was in 1932, knee deep in the dust bowl and Great Depression when the solar eclipse touched the tip of the NE but crossing the entire USA. The next three weeks with Mercury going retro on the 12th thrown in there for good measure forces us to rearrange, reorganize and consolidate (loans) our TIME - the time you waste knowingly unknowingly, the time you kill doing what you don't want to do, the time you are not valuing while others use and value at your expense. The time is here, it's now and in your grasp, use it wisely and fruitfully to do the shadow work now that is needed for the next two months before Jupiter takes us on the ride in October for over a year. 

To prepare for this solar eclipse I've included one of my favorite videos of the Sun, the giver of life, our light and future source of powering this planet. When you watch, at around 3.37 seconds you will see what will eclipse the masculine Sun energy, this tiny feminine Moon energy. Across USA a to tal solar eclipse plunges us in broad daylight into darkness giving us an incredible opportunity to receive a much needed shift, or blessing bestowed. No pushing through, no more burning up just BE-ing in the essence of ourself, accepting where we are at and what needs to change in order to change the order. If you are not sitting in ceremony at this time as you are at work wear something protective for the moments of total eclipse energy. 

Change is coming whether you are ready, or not  as the time is here. This is time of new beginnings, huge leaps of faith and un imaginable good fortune - just go with the energy. Letting go of this binary system, this duality as we  are shifting rapidly preparing us emotionally and spiritually for the oneness we all crave but fear.  Our constant functioning in duality is now at an end as there is no more bouncing between, I deserve it = I don't deserve it, I am enough = I am not enough, are you done yet playing lets waste more time delaying the inevitable. The inevitable is now thats why I have workshop for 5 weeks to get us over this hump!  When I was little I used to have this mantra/rule that I was reminded of this week
"if it doesn't feel good, then don't feel it, I am not talking about feeling "good" as in happy, but if it doesn't feel aligned, feeling true, feel correct for you then don't feel it, don't go into business with, don't negotiate with it, don't take counsel from it and don't listen to the power of suggestion of it - trust your  gut by taking a pass, or go for it. 

This month is going to have provocative energy and perhaps you will be the provocateur as that Leo lion inside needs to roar. Before you let that lion loose go dancing, go on a rollercoaster, go to a fun park, go to a concert, watch a scary movie - whatever your thing is scream before you explode or implode. Who is up for Universal next week?   The quicker you can let go of old habits, old ways, old thinking that obviously don't serve you the better. Connect to who you are hidden inside and let the Leo lion roar with empowerment, with grace, with creativity and with joyousness as we all emerge into new beginnings. 
Whatever you have been working towards it is here now but you must choose to step into the light of being seen, being judged, being analysed, being noticed, being the glorious YOU I know and have the pleasure of seeing. I look forward to the emergence of all your new beginnings whether they are emotional, physical and  spiritual maybe even all three if you decide to do a trinity transformation. The website is having some new features added over the next month to the shop as we get the audio-meditations, energy magnetizing, etc all set up, Soffeah is meticulously having the prototype of the fisherman hats that we just finished and some 2D puff trucker hats as well as t-shirts. If you are interested some of the spheres and crystal flames there will be a sale next week at 20% off selected items of towers, flames and spheres. So lets get our Pause in Joy on as you came here to enjoy yourself right!

Love and Light Patti xo


Solar Eclipse,  Reiki Circle 
 Saturday August 19th
Adam Schomer and Ashlee's Santa Monica
Please join our FB PAGE 
Like us on Facebook

This Reiki Circle is my 13th year anniversary here in Los Angeles. This circle is in preparation for the beauty of our total solar eclipse all across America as we go within to the hidden aspects of our shadow self to remove barriers, walls and defenses. We will have the honor of being hosted by Adam Schomer, the producer of Heal Documentary and Ashlee his partner who also worked on the project at their home in Santa Monica. 
Our Reiki Circle is for ALL whether you are a practitioner of Reiki or just injoy receiving some well needed boosts, restoring and shifts. Patti brings the Pause in Joy philosophy alive bringing her unique Celtic lineage of energetic circles and creating a vortex of energy for us all to feast upon. Take what you need and cast away what doesn't serve you to embrace the truth of your incarnation - You came here to experience your Joy, so injoy.

The first part of the circle is a tuning to your Joy! This focuses on re-coding or activating the your truth, your abundance, your Joy without the auto-safe ego kicking in to sabotage your connection. Our eternal habit to forget how glorious we are, how much we have to give, how incredibly simple it is when you are in the doing and not the thinking is our remembrance in this circle of intent. Each tuning will reactivate your body's natural intelligence to heal itself and embrace what you have known forever. 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. The second half is a blending of all our energies to chant, to experience the sound of our souls and send that energy to photos of people we wish to send energy to, to projects we wish to uplift and infuse, to ideas that create courage within us and to share our collective energy together to gift to the world.  
Pause in Joy is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

                              BE        DO       HAVE

August 17th, 24th, 31st, Sept 7 (two weeks later) 
    Sept 21st. (Post Mercury Retro)   7.30pm-9pm

For those of you who know-O the truth and are wasting time then this is for you to get through these next few months towards that Jupiter transiting into Scorpio. Mercury retrograde is all about finishing unfinished work and we will begin after Aug 12th to take advantage of this energy. No time to waste knowing what you need to do and not doing it, knowing what you need to be and not being it and knowing what you need to have and not having it. 

I know you know - so what is it? 

It's the upper limit problem, its the subconscious programs, cultural limitation and beliefs that keep you in a comfortable safe predictable climb. Are you ready to use your gut wrenching fears? Are you ready to take accountability of what you need to do when you need to do it? Are you ready to cease pandering to your comfort zone? and Are you ready to release the need to be unactivated yet liked?

Well you are in for a treat. We will have four  consecutive  weeks with one down 
week and one Being Me finally.  This for those who have already committed to being, doing and having and know what they are here to produce, create, contribute but just need someone to push them out the door of the airplane to fly, soar and RISE UP. We will encourage, support, tap, meditate, channel and create beliefs and connection to take us passed the upper limit that is so embedded in the psyche that we don't even know what it is. No more looking at what you know cause the pathology of your analysis gets you knowhere, as the secret to your hidden activation is in what you don't know, what you are hiding and what you are delaying. If you are done holding the world back from your gifts keeping it ignorant from your shiftlessness then lets get the ride started, shall we. 

If you wish to be at the party, please email me with what struck a note in you while reading this as space is limited.

      Solar Eclipse Alchemy
 Leo - MOAR
AUGUST 21st, 9.30am-11am
Lets Brunch afterwards
Donation, Location: Surprise!

The London Hotel has kindly offered the Hampton Court rooftop for our amazing Solar Eclipse meditation and singing bowl alchemy.   This Leo energy will tap into our MOAR combo of roar and more energy as the eclipse creates that ring of fire for us to know what we already know but have the power, willingness and ability to  show-up in our own life as we sometimes do for others. This eclipse is full of surp rises, shocks and new beginnings for us to open up to our heart, to honor that voice within ourself and to be true to our dreams, notions and fears. 
Fear is not evil, its not even bad it is a  reaction
to voluntary or involuntary change or shift with it in the direction it is pointing that we must  learn to hear it, use and expand through. This Ring of Fire at 10.21am will honor our effortless effort in the shift - blessing as if a sigh lifts the weight, the wait, the blockage, the overly protective self that doesn't allow for any new experience off your shoulders. There will be singing bowls, meditation, intention letters and of course a healing for those ready to invite change, new beginnings and a lightness of being.  

Bring a yoga mat and cushion if you like, we will be outdoors so wear sunscreen, teas, waters, juices can be purchased at the hotel rooftop. Valet at hotel is $15 although there is parking at Sunset meters if you find a spot.

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.

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.

Conscience Becomes Conscious

Long Beach  
Aug 18th -19th, 2 day class w/Soffeah
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 
Sept 23rd-24th, 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.



What you THINK you know?

Access Consciousness

There is a teaching in the FBI called the Disease of Certainty? This disease of certainty fixes us to what we think we know not allowing possibility, not allowing us to create space and allow for what is to emerge. Access consciousness allows us to create the space to destroy and uncreate these fixed and fixated points of view that do not create the joy and ease in our life we know is there.

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

Class, August 16th 10-am -5pm
