Hello, I'm Joe Hawley, a former NFL athlete turned entrepreneur, podcast host, and founder of The Härt Collective, the leading resource on deeper healing and growth for elite athletes through community and transformational retreat experiences. 

 

I played for 8 years in the NFL as a starting Center before retiring in 2017. Like most former pro athletes, I faced some pretty deep existential questions following the decision to walk away from the game, most notably, “who am I without this thing I’ve spent my entire life pursuing greatness at?” Answering this question became the focus of my life and led me onto my path of healing.

 

Following my retirement from the NFL, I donated my belongings, bought a van, and traveled the country for two years - a journey that changed my life forever. My deep healing journey has led me towards a wide variety of experiences including different plant medicine modalities and spiritual practices. I incorporate a holistic approach to wellness including physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual work to find true fulfillment and purpose in life.

 

My passion now is to share that healing journey to inspire and support others on their path to reach higher levels of self-awareness, letting go of the stories that no longer serve them, and finally find the deeper truth of who they are and what they are here to do so that they can fully step into their true divine power, becoming the creators of their own reality.
