Guide to Meditation Mount in Ojai, California

On a recent visit to Ojai, California, I had the pleasure of experiencing a visit to Meditation mount. Meditation mount is a meditation center in one of the most spiritual places in the Ojai Valley (Ojai is also known for being an Energy Vortex). If you are ever in Ojai or Ventura County, I highly recommend taking some time to slow down and turn inward at Meditation Mount. They offer visitations that require pre-registration, but also have virtual meditations if you won’t be in the area anytime soon.

Below I’m sharing a guide to Meditation Mount so you can know what to expect on your visit to this spiritual sanctuary:

What to do during a visit to Meditation Mount?

There are a few ways that they encourage you to enjoy the property during your visit

  • – Meditative walk: Take a meditative walk through the International Garden of Peace (this was my personal favorite!)
  • – Listen to guided audio meditations on the Universal Principals and Pathways
  • – Take part in a group Creative Meditation to transmit blessings to a world in need

There are also regular events like sound meditation, guided insight journaling, and sunset yoga depending on the day that you visit.

What is Creative Meditation?

Creative meditation uses specific tools and techniques to promote the building of a shared, preferred future focused on serving the greater good and serving the needs of our world. These tools include concentration, reflectiveness, receptiveness, prayer, imagination, affirmation, invocation and telepathic radiation and blessing. describes it well:  “Through the practice of Creative Meditation, we transmit energies and qualities into the subtle realms that surround the Earth so that the ‘spiritual bio-sphere’ may be infused with seed-ideas of new possibilities that help our deepest aspirations to be realized and manifested.

Creative Meditation is the art and science of creating complete ‘living thought forms’ that are beneficial to all life. These thought-forms are the magnetic seed ideas of new possibilities made up of a balanced fusion of thought, feeling, imagination and will.”

This is such a unique form of meditation and I love that it brings people together to meditate for the greater good.

Best Time to Visit Meditation mount:

Any time of year is a great time to visit Meditation Mount as the weather in the area is mild and there are both indoor and outdoor ways to enjoy the Mount. I went on a day that rained and actually loved it (even the outdoor activities) because I had the place to myself for a while.

The schedule varies but there are usually one or two windows of time available for visitations on the days that they are open. Some are morning visitations and some are available at sunset which would be beautiful!

If I were to pick one time that is best, I would suggest going for the full moon so you can take part in one of the special full moon meditations.
