What we do


PAUSE FOCUS

We teach the simple
Pause For Your Helpful Self Practice
to connect with one’s Helpful Self so you can help yourself, do your part, and help others. Helping is to learn, create, bring solutions into awareness, encourage, teach, lend-a-hand, and be a healing expression of LOVE in the world. Wherever you are, whatever you are doing, and whomever you are with – you can Pause!
