After 8 years in the NFL, Joe Hawley decided to walk away in his prime, leaving millions of dollars on the table. He felt trapped by an identity that defined him his entire life, and after achieving money, fame, and influence, he still felt like something was missing. This propelled him on a journey of deep healing and self-discovery – both cross-country and deep inside his psyche. Part of this journey involved working with sacred plant medicines, which expanded his mind, opened his heart, and anchored him in a new purpose focused on supporting the collective paradigm shift we're currently moving through. Joe co-founded The Härt Collective, a network of high-impact and heart-centered leaders, entrepreneurs, and visionaries, and he currently facilitates transformational workshops, retreats and wilderness expeditions. He also co-founded Haven Community & Retreat, where he facilitates experiential healing retreats. He hosts the podcast “Life Beyond The Game,” which shares the stories of elite athletes and their journey towards self-discovery after sport.
