Help Save The Ojai Retreat - A Local Icon

Like many other Ojai organizations, The Ojai Retreat was hit extremely hard financially by the COVID-19 pandemic. We need to raise $120,000 to be able to keep our doors open! Please help save The Ojai Retreat by making a donation today! This extraordinary Ojai landmark is an oasis of peace that is needed now more than ever.  It is one of the few retreats in the world that welcomes visitors of any faith or community to enjoy reflection, rejuvenation, quietude and enrichment.

Known for its breathtaking beauty and intangible peace, The Ojai Retreat is a 5-acre hilltop property with spectacular views of the Ojai Valley.  Guests have enjoyed the serenity of this place for 27 years.  It also serves as a venue for group retreats, conferences, concerts and ceremonies. It is within walking distance to the Theosophical Society, Oak Grove School, the Ojai Valley Land Conservancy and the famed Ranch House restaurant.

The property is also home to  The Ojai Retreat Cultural Center , a non-profit, non-denominational 501 (c) (3) organization which offers unique educational and cultural programs that enrich the human mind and spirit.  The center attracts experts, writers and thought-leaders from around the world who share their knowledge in areas such as spirituality, the arts, education, health, environment as well as local and global issues. 

"The Ojai Retreat has special meaning to us. We have organized and attended all manner of family, community, and social events at the Retreat, with its stunning location and 360-degree views. And the Retreat's history of generously hosting local nonprofits has made a great difference to causes that are close to our hearts" - John and Kathy Broesamle  and Carolyn Vondrinska
