“You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete”

– Buckminster Fuller

Our Essence

Lifeways is a life-advancement organization formed to offer clients an innovative alternative for improving their health and wellness – one that departs from traditional models and antiquated approaches. We believe that imaginative, expansive, and holistic solutions are essential for those who want to live a more vibrant and enjoyable life. For this reason, we work with clients to co-create their very own unforgettable journey that will provide plentiful opportunities for healing, insight, and growth.

Our mission: to engineer transformational experiences that enable clients to cultivate healthier ways of living and being – we call these lifeways.

The journey of the hero is about the courage to seek the depths; the image of creative rebirth; the eternal cycle of change within us; the uncanny discovery that the seeker is the mystery which the seeker seeks to know.”

– Joseph Campbell
