The HeartWay provides an integrative approach to the healing of body, mind, and spirit for those confronting a life-threatening illness, critical lifestyle change, or finding themselves caring for someone with a critical illness before, during, and after death.

About The HeartWay

The HeartWay is a conscientious organization driven not by profit but by compassion. Our primary focus is to provide an integrative and comprehensive care plan that strives to strengthen the bodies and hearts of those during life transitions. The HeartWay’s unique approach is devoted to enhancing quality of life by utilizing resources, education, and personalized care.

The HeartWay is dedicated to reversing the culturally prevalent denial of death and encouraging a return of intimacy, reverence, and sanctity to death and dying.
