Sabbatical Services


Whether you find yourself in a planned or unplanned pause in life, Conscious Pause provides sabbatical guiding and curation services and products that work just for you.   


By helping you uncover the purpose, principles and premise of your sabbatical or pause, we can provide the resources, connections, programs, activities that you can choose to use to ensure a fulfilling experience.   


We don’t do the work for you but we collate, connect and curate all the resources out there and provide personal support throughout the whole sabbatical process.  


You may want to take a sabbatical or leave but are worried about wasting it away. We won’t let that happen. For some, a sabbatical will be a time of rest and for others, it’s a time for adventure. There is no right or wrong way to “sabbatical” but with Conscious Pause, it will be right for you.  



DIY Self-Guided Sabbatical Manual

The 2020 version of the DIY Self-Guided Sabbatical Manual is now available. You can purchase it in our shop and take your sabbatical at your own pace. This is a great option if you are just starting to plan your sabbatical.

Sabbatical Society Memberships

You may already believe that taking a pause is essential but want to continue to cultivate a sabbatical mindset. A membership to the Sabbatical Society does that by providing exclusive member resources and goodies on a monthly basis. Check out our 6-month and 12-month membership options.

One-on-One Modern Sabbatical Guiding

We also offer modern sabbatical guide services for a small number of clients. If you are interested, we have both a 30-minute sabbatical-curious phone conversation as well as an in-depth full sabbatical guide for the whole time of your pause. Check out our shop for more details.

We also have a e-newsletter that provides subscribers with blog post notifications and exclusive subscriber resources. You can sign-up to receive it here. When you sign up, you will receive a downloadable print on “10 ways to cultivate a sabbatical mindset”
