Her work has been featured in scientific journals as well as radio, newspapers, magazines, television and feature films.
Dr. Schlitz went on to explain her philosophy of how to live deeply in the time of a global pandemic. She believes we can find balance within the challenges these times present, and the challenges offer opportunities for those who seek them. She outlined a practice of transformative philosophy that begins with setting an intention and opening one’s mind to other possibilities. This leads to building new habits and accepting change.
AAUW members were led by Dr. Schlitz in a session of Mindful Breathing. She said this was based on science and helped regulate the emotions and enabled one to live in the present moment. There is more information on her website Marilynschlitz.com.
