Please Join us
Pause at Noon Daily
for 1 - 10 minutes 

Together we can make a difference by focusing on one simple intention at the same time, together!

"With our unconditional love, We are calmly and powerfully holding the space for all to heal."

 Noon is the center time for the Heart Meridian and in Eastern medicine, the “heart” rules our emotions. Taking a moment for silence and breathe create a natural pause and bring us into our heart. When we are in our heart, we feel centered. When we are centered, we can direct our powerful healing energy out into the world with our thoughts or visualizations.

Anyone can join us in this daily “Noon Pause” as we each take a moment to send our energy out into the world together.
