I almost refuse to post on the place becaause its so special i dont want anyone to rush there and ruin the serenity, the peace, the beauty. BUzz and Ginger are lovely, the view is amazing, but please go to meditation mount instead, or maybe a wine tasting or some other place. Really

You don't have to be "religious" to be inspired by Meditation Mount. No one will try to convert you or solicit you. It is a destination for you yourself, but nicer if shared with loved ones. It makes you remember that you are part of nature and part of humankind. We went recently, while on vacation in Ojai, and we're... More

Experienced one of the most profound meditations of my life atop of this beautiful peak overlooking a majestic range of surrounding mountains. The magic that exists in this spectacular town is off the charts. Womb wisdom and moon magic are just some of the incredible topics. Closes at sunset so get there early but what a spectacular sight to behold... More

Peaceful, respectful, serene - amazing. Meditation Mount has a beautiful view of the Ojai Valley. Walk the serene trail to the end to see the view. Words are not spoken, it is quiet and reflective. There is parking and a gift shop. They offer talks and I think classes.

I had read about Meditation Mount so one evening on the spur of the moment decided to go up there to witness the famous "Pink Moment" when the sun hits the horizon and the Topa Topa mountains and the Ojai valley are flooded with a surreal, soft pink light and the earth seems to sign. I was enchanted by the... More

This is a great place to get a beautiful view of the Ojai Valley, wander among the native plants in a meditative mood. There are also some small building were you can meditate or have an event. Follow the signs to not get lost at the Ojai Valley School.

Beautiful grounds, view and vibe. You could hear a pin drop outside. Lovely! My only advice would be to ask the staff (bookshop and adjoining space) to keep their voices down as well.
