The energy is great. And it has a great view, we luckily made it through the top of the mountain though it was closed. The orange trees are a sight to see. It is really beautiful.

I went there after reading reviews about it being a great place to watch the sunset. It was, no doubt, peaceful and serene but nothing too special. Might be more attractive for those who are spiritual as it has meditation rooms and information about related events.

High in the foothills overlooking Ojai this little piece of heaven is just what the weary city traveler needs to unwind a little.

It's a bit of a drive, but worth the stop. Well attended grounds with most visitors observing silence or only whispering. A short walk to the end of the ridge gives a beautiful view of the Ojai valley. Pleasant stops and benches on the way, and birds are constantly around having lost their fear of humans. I was put off by the commercialism that saturated the garden. A sculptor named Brian Berman had many sculptures on display. Most weren't jarring, but some certainly were, 90% used his signature "B" and tried to make it fit in with Buddhist philosophy, and all had a placard advertising that the sculpture was for sale! Irritating.

Practice your matra! "Un-Yelly-Man" and you will fit right in with the yo far practitioners and Buddhas that surround the serene Jews and property.

Lots of peace and tranquility awaits you!
