Learn & Play

Come join us and celebrate Heartwood’s community of learning and playing

First and foremost Heartwood is a community. Our motto for the last three decades has been “Service is Love in Action” Central to this ethos is our commitment to serve our local and greater world community by providing a wholistic environment that nurtures the body, mind and soul. We do this by creating an environment that encourages people to unwind, relax, rejuvenate. At Heartwood we consider a suitable environment one which allows and supports people to be themselves and let go into their whole being.

This process is facilitated by creating a container that supports the essence of the individual in relationship to others and the community. Our facilities, events, and services, set the stage for you to explore your interests and the healthiest most expressive version of yourself.

Whether your looking for a quiet nook to hibernate and nurture yourself, or if you are looking to explore a more expansive life, Heartwood invites you to join us in one or all of our events, from educational programs, musical events, community meals at the Heartwood Lodge Kitchen, or one of our many gatherings.


You don’t need to be enrolled in a program, class or training to visit Heartwood Mountain Sanctuary.   There is a lot or little to do depending on what you are looking for.   Just wanting to relax and unwind, Heartwood has plenty of space for you to find a quite spot, or are you looking to try some things out? Heartwood has a miriad of thing to explore while you are here.
