Our public and private PROGRAMS, both in Ojai and at other locations, offer individuals and groups of all ages an opportunity to explore community, live close to nature, find renewal and mark significant rites of passage through ceremony, quiet reflection and shared service. We administer worldwide programs, offer council trainings and council-based retreats, and sometimes rent our facility to other groups with similar missions.
We can customize your program to create enriching experiences with offerings such as: teachings in the way of council, rites-of-passage ceremonies, ropes course challenge, nature awareness, Wheel of Life in Balance teachings, dream councils, ceremonial sweat, games, art making and solo time in nature. All are designed to foster healthy relationships, deepen appreciation of the natural world, inspire creativity and promote self-reflection and growth.
Our newest and largest meeting space, the Council House, is a spectacular example of earth-friendly design including a plant-covered "living roof" and a solar-heated floor of renewable mesquite wood. It is available for rent for concerts, yoga, conferences and other special events.
The majority of our programs are council-based.
