My husband and I loved coming up here for the final night of our weekend getaway. We arrived an hour before sunset to scope out a nice bench. It was so relaxing listening to all of the wildlife and watching the sunset. Very therapeutic. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a moment of serenity before returning home!

A peaceful and powerful place to be! The sunsets are awesome! I coincidentally found this place while visiting Ojai last year and was very grateful. I appreciate very much the generosity and extraordinary diligence and carefulness of the "owners". I enjoyed my visits while staying in the area this year! Thank you!!!

Just outside of town you will drive to the top of the mount where there i a meditation center. There are paths and gardens and small pools. Along the way are benches hidden so that you may sit in peace and meditate. The vistas from the top are beautiful mountain ranges.

Meditation Mount is a must if you are in Ojai as it has a spectacular view and a delightful garden. White parasols are kindly provided free of charge to protect from the sun. Visit the bench on the edge of the mountain and breathe in the fresh and pure air as you prepare to meditate over that enscribed on it... More
