Hi there

Fore warned is foretold they say. As we have just experienced our first of three SuperMoons your sleep patterns may have been a tad disrupted well get ready for another on Sept 27th as the Harvest SuperMoon plus a Lunar eclipse is coming. This is time for you to activate your KNOWER as you know you know because I know that you know thus the game of I don’t know is finished.

This month is going to be very exciting, did you know fear and excitement is the same vibration it just depends what you DECIDE to label it so lets not pretend we don’t know what is coming! Mercury goes retrograde on Sept 17th just as this Sunday Venus will go direct from its retrograde making Sept one of the most exciting months of the year. So what did Venus retrograde teach you over five weeks about Love and Value? Did you get to burn through the layers of valuing what you love and what you lost, not realizing the value of what you love is the lesson here, did you stop taking things for granted and understand why others value your stuff more that you? The things we don’t think matter begin to matter as it is our own ambivalence with matter that makes us miss the moments to self inquire.

This week my attention was drawn to a convenience driven self-rolling yoga mat being invented with its main pitch being if you are frustrated with rolling up your mat at the end of class then this is for you. I took pause for a moment as this is a perfect example of our missing the opportunity to self inquire
why the heck you are frustrated with your mat at the end of a yoga class. Obviously this is an opportunity for you to look at your rage, your frustration that really is not about a mat but went unnoticed to burn away in class. These missed opportunities have there tipping point outside of a class so when you catch the gremlin ticked off the teacher, at your mat, at the person next to you, you are the problem not the world around you.

You see we let it go, we miss these opportunities – not to chastise ourself but to inquire at the oddness of a peaceful yoga class being disrupted by frustration, annoyance and hate.  What is it really about? Our convenience to not feel uncomfortable smooths off the edge leaving the unknown dormant waiting for its opportunity to reveal itself in moments we would rather have if he had just inquired. Know thyself, thus to thyself be true or have you notice the numb plateau you find yourself sailing in circles within.That is because the  sail is untethered, thus not fully catching the wind as you go around in safe circles. Tighten up your practice, batten down the hatches as we are about catch a wave of enormous opportunity out of this plateau to the Regatta.

Take responsibility and tether your sail for now we will catch the winds of change, surprise from the solar eclipse and take the opportunity to see the Big Picture rather than its moving parts. We not only have one circle but two this month to harness the energy and for you to deepen your commitment to yourself. Pause in-Joy is a philosophy you take with you and will travel were you travel throughout your life’s journey and I have seen the most magnificent of Journeys.

Ramona and Gretchen will be shaking things up with their Reiki III as you will find more on their presentations at the end of the newsletter as well as an opportunity to book in for psychic surgery to move energy blocking, depleting or just stagnant holds.

I send you love, blessings and more abundance than you ever dreamed possible, so open your heart like a superhero and let it all in.

Love and Light

Reiki Joy Transmission (Every Monday Morning)


Each and every Monday at 8.08am a Reiki Transmission of Joy will be beamed from Patti on the Joy FM frequency. For those students wishing to make this a regular sadhana please join me with 5 Tibetans Rites Yoga, or your own personal practice as we sit together connecting to Mudita (Joy).


Mudita (Joy) traditionally is used with compassion and is vicarious Joy. 
Mudita encourages charitable and social work but including compassion (karuna) as the inspiration for it, their marriage is undeniable. Mudita also prevents compassionate action from being scarred with a condescending or patronizing attitude, as this can be repelling and hurtful to recipients. Also, when active compassion and unselfish joy get together, works of service do not feel dead and routinely indifferently. Indifference, listlessness, boredom are said to be the ‘distant enemies’ of mudita.

Reiki Circle & Solar Eclipse

Sept 13th, 10.30am- 11.45am

Address: 1200 S Windsor Blvd, 90019

This Reiki Circle will be harnessing the energy of the Solar Eclipse just before Mercury goes Retrograde. Surprise is on the horizon and you relationship with surprise will be running with it or not. Our community Reiki Circles are for ALL whether you practice Reiki or not. It is an opportunity to plug in to a conscious community and use what you already know, whether it is the teachings of Abraham, Louise Hay, Marianne Willliamson or your own practice; this gathering is a sacred event where we get to work on the subtle energies.

Our Reiki Circle is in two parts. The first part consists of a beautiful guided meditation to create a sense of peaceful calm for our energies to gentle build together. Each individual attending receives the gift of a one-to-one healing attunement by one of the program’s Reiki Masters. This serene space of meditation can clear blockages, form clarity, increase empowerment, release

toxins that no longer serve you. and induce change.

The second part of the Reiki Circle is to send energy utilizing the group’s energy since the healing attunement. This massive unified healing energy is transported through time and space to our families, friends, projects, dreams, businesses and aspirations. Participants bring photographs of loved ones, vision books/boards, head shots, scripts and yes I have even had dogs in the center of the circle to symbolize our intentions. Students attuned to Reiki will hold the energy for those not attuned, as a chorus of AUM’s fused with the Kotodama transport our intention of healing. Each circle produces its own special energetic vibration, everyone brings their own uniqueness that can result in epiphanies for some, clarity for others with a deep sense of connectedness to the ocean of consciousness.

DONATION for Circle and Yoga


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 work 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 scarey, 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 need 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 I  

Re-Membering your Light 

Reiki One teaches awakens that they are energetic beings having a physical experience. This awakening of energetic alignment to the subtle bodies re-establishes a discernment of the mind, body and soul connection to everything. This infinite unified field of CONSCIOUSNESS taps you into the the grid of our own healing, knowing, empowerment and self-centered peacefulness.

Focusing on this subtle life-force energy that underlies everything gives each student the opportunity to shift anything in their life before it manifests physically. 

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.  


Class Duration: 1 day, 10am – 4pm, you will be given the book prior to class for you to read, fill out and be perplexed by.

Sept 12th and 28th

-Vegetarian Lunch Provided

Reiki II : The Conscience Becomes Conscious

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 Reiki II Students: 2nd Full Day CLASS REFRESHER

Current Reiki II Students: Learn EFT to send Reiki back 2pm-4pm  





Reiki III: Walking the Dharma
Reiki III is a future trajectory from Reiki II as the patterns, predictability and comfort zones are dissolved. As each Reiki II student metic
lously chose personal milestones to send energy back to in Reiki II these milestones were limitations to a personal vantage point invested in the story a
nd identity held with it.  Reiki III, is an energetic experiential journey of no li
near absolutes but transforming into a multidimensional journey to
create fut
ure 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 so
und 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.

Our Reiki Circles for Artists and Creatives will focus on quieten your mind using ancient breathwork techniques and dropping into stream of consciousness through a visualization meditation.

Each person will receive an empowerment attunement to tune you in further and faster to the Source of your own unique creativity. Once back to awakened consciousness journaling or drawing is advised to capture the moment that will unfold even after you leave. This level of surrender to make space for the genius, epiphany, story, music or new thought to drop in is uncontrolled, trusting and of course magical.  

We will close our circle with an release of fears and placing our creative journals in the center to collect the magical energy now tapped into.
