Anna-Lena (“Shama”) Gustavsson

Co-Founder & Visionary

A day with enthusiasm is a day worth living.

Shama leads and infuses the land with decades of somatic wisdom, and holds vital keys that balance generational gaps.  Born and raised in Sweden, she focused most of her professional adult life on health and wellness and has also been involved in various types of entrepreneurship.  Her deep family values are intrinsic to the Heartland vision.   As an elder, she is a big inspiration to visitors and volunteers as she openly shares and teaches about her vast life experiences.  Her personal mission is to fully embrace learning, and continue to shed what is not serving and deepen what’s of value both from past and new perspectives.
