A wonderful, spiritual retreat that provides seminars and a library for research or purchasing books. I love coming here just to feel the peace and tranquility. Great place to renew your spirit.

This is the former residence of renowned teacher and philosopher, Jiddu Krishnamurti. Since his death his home is now called the Education Center. There you will find a library and an archive building where Krishnamurti's teachings and history are chronicled. This is not a place for a casual vacation.

So happy to have finally made it over from the UK after wanting to visit for many years. The centre lived up to and beyond any expectation in its tranquillity and ambience of peace and deep intelligence. All the staff where extremely welcoming, kind and informative. I look forward to returning in 2016.

His words continue to both challenge and resonate for anyone on the "inward journey". Visiting the extensive Krishnamurti Library (books, CDs and DVDs all available to explore) at the Pepper Tree Inn and having the opportunity to chat with the warm, friendly... More

I really enjoyed my time here. Michael was very nice and informative. I watched a dvd of Krishnamurti and got engulfed in his philosophy. Great place to visit.

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...
