Ojai Foundation

A New Age foundation founded by Dr. Joan Halifax in Ojai, California. It was situated on 40 acres of former semi-wilderness land in the Upper Ojai Valley, some 80 miles from Los Angeles. Through the 1980s, the foundation offered retreats with well-known healers, scientists, artists, and others from various religious traditions and spiritual disciplines. At the end of the 1980s the foundation ran into a zoning quarrel with the community that eventually led to its demise.
