About Dr. Cynthia Bischoff

Over eighteen years ago, Dr. Cynthia Bischoff, a communications professor and university director, had a life-changing experience that motivated her to create her own business Heartliving™. Her intention was to empower others to live more meaningful lives.

Since then, Cynthia has taught and coached thousands of people in the U.S., Japan, and Europe. Whether her audience has consisted of corporate executives, homemakers, physicians, or artists, she has found that their motivation is the same: a desire for inspiration, as well as greater meaning and balance in their life experience. Her workshops offer a unique curriculum that creates a noticeable positive behavioral and psychological shift in her clients.

A master speaker and story teller, Cynthia inspires others through her poignant life journey of risk taking and living her soul’s mission. What distinguishes Cynthia is an authentic compassion and tireless commitment to help walk people through significant, transformational life events. She has helped clients with the most challenging circumstances, such as reframing traumas, managing life-threatening illnesses (understanding the symbolic reason for illness as well as applying complementary healing modalities), and guiding people to make the most of their life situation.

An author of three books and a card set, several national telecourses, numerous videos and CDs, and radio show host, Cynthia has 40 years of teaching and leadership experience in academic, business, and community settings. She has received countless honors including being named in the “Top 10 Best Instructors in the Nation” by Technological University; the Virginian Pilot Inside Business “Women in Business Achievement Award 2013”; and in 2017 was inducted into the Norfolk Hall of Fame after receiving Best Holistic Practitioner 9 years in a row.
