In honor and remembrance of the early days Thich Nhat Hanh spent at The Ojai Foundation, we will begin hosting a Day of Mindfulness on the first Sunday of every month.
Come deepen your practice under the canopy of the grandmother oak. Come experience freedom in the silence and majesty of the surrounding mountains.
The day will include walking and sitting meditation, teachings and practices from this Buddhist tradition as well as the ways of The Ojai Foundation, including council. The day will be co-held by a lay teacher from Thay’s Order of Interbeing and an Ojai Foundation facilitator.
We welcome local and LA-based Buddhist sanghas as well as the wider community.
Bring comfortable, layered clothing, sturdy shoes and a sack lunch. By donation.

Feast Bistro’s annual Wine Dinner
Thursday, October 21st
Chef Susan and Chef Rosie are creating an amazing menu to compliment these amazing wines!
While they work on the menu,
here is a little preview of two we will feature:
2009 Arneis, Santa Ynez Valley
This grape’s “home” region is Piemonte, Italy
Arneis loosely translates to “rascal or “whimsical one” and
Palmina’s version rings true to that with a complexity
that is lean & full bodied with exotic fruit notes
2007 Alisos, Santa Barbara County
80% Sangiovese, 20% Merlot, 100% Palmina style
This delicious wine has an earthy minerality with a bouquet that includes raspberry & orange peel with flavors of cranberry, rose petals, black cherry and a hint of chocolate!

Ojai is one of the world’s most special places. Internationally known as a sacred place of exceptional beauty and spiritual significance, Ojai is a unique valley wrapped in the ‘arms’ of the Los Padres National Forrest about 80 miles north of Los Angeles and 10 miles east of the Pacific Ocean. Perhaps the last intact Mediterranean ecosystem in Southern California, Ojai is often compared to Tuscany. The hills above town are covered with sage, chaparral, oaks and lavender.
The name Ojai (pronounced O-HIGH) is derived from the Chumash word “Awhai”. The word is thought to mean “The Nest” or “The Moon” and Ojai is often called “The Valley of the Moon”. It is thought the Chumash declared the Ojai Valley sacred in part because of its unusual East/West transverse range, which stretches from the Santa Monica Mountains through the Santa Ynez Range. The surrounding mountains are capped by Topa Topa, the highest peak, which soars from near sea level to a height of 6,244 feet. At sunset, Topa Topa’s rocky westward face often catches a spectacular rosy glow creating the famous “pink moment”.
