Sane Mountain Retreat Center

About This Center

Give yourself and your 4 to 15 group a retreat in a serene natural setting at one of Ojai's unique avocado and citrus farms (20+ acres). With expansive views of the Ojai Valley to the east and Matilija Dam to the west. the property itself has about one mile of beautiful trails on the edge of Las Padres National Forest. We are only 5 miles from Ojai town center and 15 miles to the beach. Our micro climate is milder than in the valley so you will feel comfortable and refreshed all summer and winter even when the valley bakes or freezes. Guests tell us the air is special as jasmine, citrus, sage and rosemary aromas abound.

We are part residence (4 acres), part avocado/citrus farm, in transition to permaculture (7 acres), and the remainder park/forest and trails abutting one of California’s largest forests that stretches hundreds of miles from Ojai to Big Sur.

We offer 3 private accommodation types that can be rented separately or in combination to fit groups of 2 to 15 or more.  In addition, we have a open studio space 450 sq. ft.

To be more present and engaged in the world, to be of benefit to others. Vincent

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
