WHAT is the WisdomWay™? 

The WisdomWay™ path represents a caregiving training dedicated to precision, a full presence, and compassionate service. The WisdomWay™ method is built on the 4 Domains of Mindful Caregiving.

We train together but also sustain together using these skills that ready us to be the change-makers, the paradigm shifters, the healers and the helpers.

WisdomWay™ Institute offers training, mentoring and support for caregivers. Faculty bring expertise in client-centered care, integrative health and skills applicable to your profession. Our online courses and retreat formats build connection and community.

Join the movement to create sustainable well-being and a more compassionate world!

WHY choose WisdomWay™? 

At its center, the profession of healing is the fulfillment of our wish to serve, to give…and to be restored.
