Dr. Greg Marcus, aka “the Mussar Man,” is a recovering workaholic who offers guidance on how to lead a life of mindful balance and spiritual integrity, drawing upon timeless Jewish teachings and contemporary wisdom alike. Dr. Greg has a Ph.D. from MIT in molecular genetics, worked for ten years as a marketer in Silicon Valley, and now is a stay at home dad, writer, speaker, and workshop facilitator. He discovered a series of empirical steps that helped him cut his hours by a third, but it wasn’t until he started practicing Mussar that he understood why he was driven to work 90 hours a week. He invites you to join him on a Mussar journey, to take one small step every day on the spiritual path towards becoming a Mensch. Dr. Greg is a graduate of the Mussar Institute’s facilitator training program. His first Mussar book, The Spiritual Practice of Good Actions: Finding Balance Through the Soul Traits of Mussar will be published in September by Llewellyn.
