Pause in JOY Teacher + Practitioner
Pause In JOY Reiki
My daily interface and sincere connection with Spirit/Universe is though reiki. Reiki was developed through the metaphysical and spiritual experience of Mikao Usui Sensei over 100 years ago and passed down from teacher to student through oral tradition/experiential learning. I am profoundly grateful for my teacher Patti Penn, the founder of Pause in Joy, with whom I have had the privilege of studying with since 2011. Pause in Joy reiki is more than a healing tool, it is transformational and allows each one of us to vibrate at our highest level to be in living Joy.
I was born in CT to Bangladeshi immigrants and lived in Los Angeles for over 15 years and currently in the San Francisco Bay Area with my husband & 4 children.
My childhood and young adult life were riddled with anxiety, uncertainty and fear. I didn't know what to study or where to work and made each decision out of fear to be safe. I didn't realize the answers were all inside.
I was magically guided to Pause in Joy reiki a few years after becoming a mother. I was then able to tune in; the confusion and anxiety were replaced with certainty and knowing. I became pregnant naturally with 2 more children after my IVF twins. I took a leap in faith and resigned from my federal government job to start a journey home to myself. I shifted the focus from doing to joyfully being.
I am attuned to the four levels of Reiki at Pause in Joy: Reiki I, Reiki II, Reiki III, Reiki Master Practitioner and Reiki Master Teacher, between 2011 and 2020 . I am also a certified sound practitioner providing a transcendental sound meditation journey. I have a Juris Doctorate from the University of Connecticut School of Law (2004) and Bachelors of Science from the University of Connecticut (2000). I work out of my home in Lafayette, CA.
