Pause inJOY Reiki

My daily practice involves connecting with spiritual conscious energy through the use of Reiki, a healing technique developed over 100 years ago by Mikao Usui Sensei through spiritual and metaphysical experiences. Since 2011, I have been studying with my teacher, Patti Penn, the founder of Pause inJoy, for whom I am deeply grateful. Pause inJoy embodies more than a healing modality: it is a transformative way of being that enables us to tune in to our inner voice, live fully and joyfully, and deepen our connection. This practice has led to a profound positive shift in my life, allowing me to deepen my relationship with myself and Spirit.

About Ani

I'm a certified Pause inJoy Reiki Master Teacher and sound healing practitioner based in Lafayette, CA. Born to Bangladeshi immigrants in Connecticut, I spent over 15 years living in Los Angeles before settling in the San Francisco Bay Area with my husband and four children.

After becoming a mother, I discovered Pause inJoy Reiki and was magically guided to this healing practice.  Pause inJoy helped me tune in to my inner self, replacing the anxiety and uncertainty that had plagued my youth and young adult life with a sense of certainty and knowing. It also supported me in becoming pregnant naturally with two more children after my IVF twins and it even gave me the courage to leave my government job and pursue my passion.

I've been attuned to the four levels of Reiki at Pause inJoy: Reiki I, Reiki II, Reiki Master Practitioner, and Reiki Master Teacher between 2011 and 2020. In addition, I'm certified in sound healing and offer transcendental sound meditation journeys.

I also hold a Juris Doctorate from the University of Connecticut School of Law and a Bachelor of Science from the University of Connecticut. I work out of my home (private residence) in Lafayette, CA and am honored to support others on their own journeys to healing and joy.
