“Peaceful, natural, history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

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 and more.
As for the K.E.C center, its a must see if you're in Ojai. The Pepper Tree Retreat
is a fabulous, and very reasonable place to stay as well, the Retreat was
Krishnamurti's home for 64 years.

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!

“Great resource for those interested in Krishnamurti”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

The Krishnamurti library, located in the home where Krishnamurti lived when in Ojai, houses a small collection of Krishnamurti books available for browsing and reading, as well as a bookstore with a variety of Krishnamurti and Krishnamurti-related books, CDs and DVDs. This library definitely is worth a visit for those who are interested in learning more about Krishnamurti or in acquiring books or DVDs of his talks. If you cannot visit, you also can order from them.
