Nestled in the hills overlooking the Ojai Valley (90 minutes north of Los Angeles) is a location so serene you may not want to leave. If you desperately need to release some stress or just want a few minutes to breath, look no further than Meditation Mount.
Open Your Heart and Soul at Meditation Mount
One of the things that is so great about the mount is the variety of activities that are offered. Wether you want to partake in meditation, yoga, take a self-guided walk through the International Garden of Peace or simply take off your shoes, let the green grass flow through your toes and enjoy the natural beauty around, Meditation Mount is the perfect spot.
I loved walking the grounds and coming across girlfriends doing yoga on the lawn, couples resting on benches while enjoying the view and families hand-in-hand reading positive affirmations while walking through the garden. People were happy here, you could see it in their eyes and it made me happy too!
Life today is so fast-paced and we don’t often take enough time to stop and smell the roses. Isn’t it nice to have a place to disconnect and get away from it all? Why not take a moment to explore something new? You never know what inner peace can be found…or what friends can be made.
Also located on the grounds is a gift shop and a reading room for visitors to enjoy.
A $2.00 donation is appreciated to wander the grounds and many of the programs are free or have nominal fees. Please visit www.meditationmount.org for more information on event schedules. Allow yourself at least an hour to walk the grounds and discover all that Meditation Mount has to offer.
