Spiritual Tours of Ojai is one of a few programs offered by Peaceful Self Programs. In addition to tours we offer customized Peaceful Self Retreats, spiritual counseling that focuses on the Peaceful Self Process, online mini-retreat courses, and private one-on-one yoga sessions. Our tours grew out of Dr. Lisa Love’s (our founder) love of Ojai and the spiritual sites we visit. Some of these sites Dr. Lisa Love has even been connected with for decades. Due to her interest and love of the spiritual sites we visit, Dr. Lisa Love wrote a book called Ojai: A Spiritual Journey, which now is available only to people who take our tours. Having experienced the special spiritual nature of these sites in Ojai, we are now thrilled to share our understanding of these sites to you.
