Welcome to The Ojai Foundation

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.


Since 1979, Council has been our primary practice supporting group interaction, conflict resolution, storytelling, decision-making and co-visioning.

Re-Calling Our Ancestors

Re-Calling Our Ancestors launches this winter, February 2022, as a moon cycle-long pilot course for white and white-passing* people committed to dismantling the systems of oppression in ourselves and in the world around us, as well as in our communities of practice and in the bodies of work we carry.


Council & Social Equity

The Ojai Foundation is committed to a deep examination of the practice of council toward increased access, equity and relational healing across class, race, gender, sexual orientation, and other social positions. The Council & Social Equity Project exists to do just that.
