Marilyn Paul, Ph.D.


Research and experience show clearly that trying to accomplish something all the time is detrimental to our health, relationships and our productivity.  We need significant down time every week.  Yet, particularly if we are disorganized, overwhelmed and stressed, stopping is hard!!  How do we stop taking action?  There is much to learn from the Western spiritual tradition of Sabbath/Shabbat.  In fact, the word Shabbat simply means stop. 


Dr. Paul will show why it is important to stop every week and will provide the tools and mindset that can make this happen.  She is known for her lively talks that are full of humor, compassion and optimism.



Dr. Paul is a consultant, coach and speaker on the topic of sustainable productivity.  She is a Principal of Bridgeway Partners organizational consulting and the author of An Oasis in Time:  How a Day of Rest Can Save Your Life (Rodale, 2017) and It’s Hard to Make a Difference When You Can’t Find Your Keys (Penguin, 2004)   She was chosen as a Top 100 Leadership Speaker 2018 by Inc.com.  Her work has appeared in USA Today, Success Magazine, Inc.com, Spirituality and Health Magazine and many other publications.
