Wellness Retreat with a Holistic, Comprehensive Approach to Well-being, Relaxation, and Health

Retreat to the Heartland

Since 1983 we’ve been helping people like you make lasting lifestyle changes. Whether you want to lose weight, adjust your diet, lose bad habits, gain healthy habits, reduce & relieve stress, or meet like minded people, our all-inclusive retreats will help. We’ve helped thousands of others just like yourself.

Our programs are designed to help jump start your life. Our full 21 day experience is complete for beginners as well as experts and will take you through hands-on lessons to help alter your kitchen for more juicing, blending, vegan meals, dehydrating, sprouting like the pro’s and that is only one of our new weeks!

Our most frequent comment we hear from departing guests is “life-changing.” Satisfied guests, now called Alumni of Heartland, return every year to renew and refine their healthy lifestyle goals, enjoy all of our nurturing spa services, and reset good habits… all while losing a few pounds, connecting with their personal goals and making some new, life-long friends.

A wellness retreat is a vacation for a healthier YOU….

For some, the primary goal is losing weight and to reduce stress in their lives. Others come for daily massages, nurturing spa treatments, and transformational conversations. Some want to prevent and address physical and other health issues. Others seek grace in dealing with a difficult event. Some are maximizing health before a medical treatment, being pro-active and preventative. Others seek the ultimate spa-health vacation in a beautiful location!

Everyone agrees: Our holistic, all-inclusive approach works!

Bring your friends, come with your family or your partner. People leave feeling better and, best of all – living better.

Some previous guests have reported dramatic and sometimes remarkable results including reduced insulin dependency, a decrease in bad cholesterol levels, improved blood sugar, reduction of chronic pain, greater feelings of well-being and overall happiness! No matter what goals you set for yourself, our compassionate, supportive staff will be with you on every step of your journey.


Our Goal

Nourish YOUR mind, body, and spirit.

Help YOU create and enjoy the retreat YOU need to make the lifestyle changes YOU want!


Every day you will enjoy some form of activity (or maybe not if you are cleansing); it’s your choice. We care that everybody gets the movement, exercise they need, at every age, in any health condition. When your heart is healthy, the rest of your body will follow the leader! If you are not sure where to start, then a personalized health assessment may be added a la carte to any package. A good cleanse begins with a healthy diet and bringing some life-force into your body again. With plenty of plant based, raw living foods and FRESH juices, you will start feeling more energy after only a few short days on our program.
It’s safe to say that if you want to live a long and healthy life, exercise of some kind, is a must. Physical exercise, when practiced regularly, increases stamina, blood circulation and overall physical health, and science also shows that it treats depression, ADHD, and other mood disorders. But if you are going to stick with it and make it a habit, it should be enjoyable! Learn what YOU like from our menu of daily lakeshore heart walks, yoga and body sculpting. No matter what shape you’re in, you will find lots of options at the Heartland.


The evidence is in: What we eat matters a lot, especially as we age. There are many reasons to learn to eat a healthier diet, not only as a temporary weight-loss fix but also as a long-term lifestyle solution. Our delicious plant based, raw / vegan meals, served three times daily, have been developed to provide optimal nutrition – but also to nourish mind, body and spirit. You may also choose to have your meals blended (for easier digestion), choose a juice cleanse program or just only have juice for breakfast and a healthy meal for dinner. Mix and match to suit your needs!

At the Heartland, we focus on evidence-based nutritional information, not fads. All of our foods that we serve are gluten and dairy free, raw / living greens, sprouts and vegetables, or an optional blended meal, even juice is available for all who request it. Some nuts, seeds, or avocado may be served as well.

Not sure what to do once your return home? Personalized nutrition consultations may be added a la carte to any package.


A large part of maintaining excellent physical health is reducing stress in this busy, fast paced world we all live in. Taking a break from our electronic gadgets, cell phones, computers, etc. and spending the day fasting from technology. Slowing down. Taking a deep breath. Yes, while you are breathing, your mind is now starting to quiet down a bit. Enjoy an optional day of silence once a week, fasting from the verbal noise of daily life.
During your stay, we do offer many different types of massage and body treatments, both invigoration and deeply relaxing.  Please let us know in advance if you are interested in any treatments, so when you arrive, you will be able to start your restful, body cleansing, vacation away from all the noise.


Relaxation and stress relief is the FOCUS of your experience at the Heartland. While all vacations are supposed to let you ‘chill out’, we seek to help you deeply relax here by 1. Helping you get the right amount of body movement, leading to better sleep. 2. Enjoying some of the healthiest prepared meals in the country in a beautiful environment! 3. Meeting life-long & like-minded friends and 4. Enjoying our luxurious spa treatments.

We also teach you how to take that relaxation home with you: we are committed to sharing a diversity of practices to reduce stress and tension, increase mindfulness and mind-body balance, and restore a natural feeling of well-being to your everyday life. Being able to keep friends in your life with new choices, and maybe letting some old habits exit on their own.

These practices come from a variety of traditions and incorporate internal body awareness and energy balancing techniques. Each week we offer classes and information sessions to help you learn to enjoy life more. Individualized classes, assessments, and workshops can also be scheduled to help you meet your specific needs.
