Program Offerings for Guests at the Retreat Centers and Hotels of OJAI
Soul Wanders and Walks
Come join us as we wander into the forests, chaparral, and meadows of Ojai. We wander with wonder and with the bigger questions:
- “What is coming to an end for me?”
- “What appears to be stalking me?”
- “What do I deeply long for?”
- “What do these times require of me?”
- Perfect for individuals or groups on retreat.
Authentic Communication Through Council
- Relearn the ancient practice of mature and deep communication. Council is a practice of open, heartfelt expression and attentive, empathic listening. It is a great ally in introducing meaningful change into our relationships, and our institutions.
- Great for retreat groups
- Learn how to embody what you experienced when the veil was lifted between the two worlds. The world Entheogen means “the god within”. Deepen into your experience of the Ayahuasca, Iboga, or other entheogen journey. We help you anchor the experience and live a transformed life so that what you learned does not remain just an experience that opened your eyes and heart. We do not offer the entheogen experience, we help help you bring it to fruition in your life.
- Continue to explore the journey to soul and spirit with Eco-Psyche-Artistry
Talking Across The Species Boundary
- Are you ready to move from being mute and deaf in nature to a fully participatory being in nature and thereby returning to your own “human nature?”
- Learn again to enter the conversation with the wild world all around us.
- For the ECO-TOURIST who longs to connect with the wild world and their own indigenous participatory consciousness.

- How do I reconnect with my own inner nature through explorations in nature?
- How do I serve my children and Mother Earth better?
