Sabbaticals Are For Everyone: Why, How, and When

- Subscribe to updates .

Today’s episode is a little different. In my conversation with Corbett Barr in the last episode, I was struck by the role that time off played in his career shift. We talked about it as both a “sabbatical” and a “vision quest”. Though most people might be familier with these idea, it is commonly something reserved for clergy and teachers.

Today, I wanted to explore the idea of intentional time off for everyone, so I got together with my good friend Lacy Clark Ellman. Lacy is a spiritual director and blogger who writes around idea of intentionality in life. She also has just returned from a sabbatical.

We talk about what sabbaticals are and how everyone could benefit from taking one.
