Heartland is an off-grid, 25-acre, lakeside regenerative learning center.

Heartland Collective exists to educate and inspire people on how to live a regenerative lifestyle fueled by purpose and flow states. It is a prototype for a larger collective of regenerative communities, and is expanding into a platform to prototype life 3.0 - encompassing a digital twin and VR experience to make eco-learning more accessible.
We invite individuals and teams to join us through one of our programs, focused on the 4 Heartland Pillars; OuterWork, InnerWork, Transformation, and Celebration. Collaborate with us as a volunteer via the Cultural Exchange program, attend an upcoming event, or book your next experience through Airbnb or HipCamp.


The Heartland Experience

Escape the hectic city life to an adventure at Heartland. A one hour drive from Sacramento airport or a 3.5 hour drive from the Bay Area brings visitors to Heartland’s off-grid, lakefront location.

As a guest, volunteer, collaborator, event attendee or member (coming soon) - you can join us to learn more about the regenerative lifestyle. You can come here and let your body rest or do the opposite in one of the adventurous opportunities we offer like; paddle boarding, hiking, or flow state activation through our sensory activation chamber. If your timing is right, our farm fresh food will nurture your body, mind, and soul. Further, Heartland is ripe for inspiration, providing the space to create and activate artistic expressions.

For volunteers on the path to becoming a Heartlander

While in service at Heartland, you have the opportunity to explore various activities including land management, event production, farming and permaculture, building, and art. Dozens of people have found us through our WWOOF or WorldPackers profiles and we are blessed to have the support.

Some people come for a weekend, and others stay for much longer. The Heartland Cultural Exchange program includes a 1-2 month long personal growth program based on 2 different books; The Four Agreements and Braving the Wilderness. Each book establishes various opportunities for volunteers and Heartlanders to grow as a person, and to better understand the Heartland Collective culture. Woven into the living experience is also an introduction to Non-Violent Communication. As a package, these books and communication tools provide a foundation for regenerative living.
