Welcome to The Ojai Foundation
In transition to become Topa Institute
The Ojai Foundation is a 36-acre educational nonprofit located in the Upper Ojai Valley. For over 40 years, our land and programs have been a beacon for youth and adults seeking ways to deepen relationship with self, each other, and the natural world. Council, the practice of listening and speaking from the heart, is our foundational offering and core to all we do.
Our Own Rite of Passage
The Ojai Foundation is in transition to become Topa Institute.
United behind a common mission and devoted to the practice of council, youth rites of passage, and many more projects in the arts and education, we are forming a new organization called the Topa Institute. Topa will nourish the legacy of the Ojai Foundation, the roots of council, and the creation of intercultural connections that have thrived on the ridge for so many years.
The transition to Topa Institute will unfold within the next 6 months, and we invite our community to join us in co-creating the new future! Please let us know if you have any questions or suggestions for programming or stewarding the land.
Stay tuned for more updates.
Since 1979, Council has been our primary practice supporting group interaction, conflict resolution, storytelling, decision-making and co-visioning.
Run your own retreat, workshop, event at TOF’s sacred land. Located in the heart of the Ojai Valley with views of Topa-Topa mountains, and surrounded by natural beauty. Inspiring community and creativity.

We are currently looking for volunteers to help with Eco Art projects and hospitality.
