Ojai is a small town between Santa Barbara and Ventura. It's long been known to be filled with spiritualism, artists and health enthusiasts. The Krishnamurti Education Center is full of wonderful material, the grounds are lovely and Ojai is a very sweet town to explore; an outdoor bookstore, natural food store, lots of local artists selling beautiful things, hiking trails...

This is the second time I stay here. Lovely place to relax, enjoy gorgeous gardens, caring and friendly staff, delicious oranges from their orange groves, great rooms, and peace and quiet. Enjoy!

Worth your time if you want to do some inner exploration. Very nice site and facility, but wouldn't go out of your way if you're not there to do some learning.
