Heartwood Mountain Sanctuary
Service is Love in Action
Heartwood is a wilderness eco-retreat destination, learning village and community hub at the heart of the Emerald Triangle in Humboldt County, California.
For virtually everyone whose life has been touched by Heartwood, there has just been no place in life quite as profound as their time here. Heartwood’s tradition as a residential healing arts school has created a rare, self-actualizing learning environment, that continues to be nurtured to this day. It’s been Heartwood’s passion to offer individuals an opportunity to come home to a safe place to learn, grow, or just be. Heartwood’s purpose is “Love in Action”, and is the expression of the dreams, ideals, hard work and love of thousands since its inception in 1978.
We are currently a staff of 14 people living on the land, working and playing together in the service of our mission.
We offer many ways for you to explore what it means to live a life with heart, through educational programs, and daily happenings. We invite you to spend some time with us.
