The Theosophical Society in the Ojai Valley

The Ojai Valley Lodge is a local branch of the Theosophical Society in America. It holds weekly meetings on Tuesdays (October through May) from 7:00–8:00 p.m., at the Krotona Institute of Theosophy, 46 Krotona Street, Ojai, California. For a list of upcoming programs and information about membership, you can email or visit our website and please like our Facebook page.

For the 2019-20 year, we will begin each meeting with a guided meditation starting at 6:00 p.m.; followed by a quiet, meditative study time before the meeting begins. Though its programs are open to everyone, some are planned especially for TS members. This means that having a knowledge of Theosophy will help in the study but it is not mandatory to join the meeting. We hope to see you soon.

Daily Morning Meditation

A guided group meditation is held Monday – Friday, from 9 – 9:20 am, in Krotona Hall. The intention is to help us center ourselves in stillness and unity, so we may bring good will, peace and healing to all in need. All are welcome.

The Hall is adjacent to Krotona Library, and both doors to the foyer are open during the meditation.

Theosophical Healing Network

The Krotona circle of the Theosophical Healing Network, a branch of the Theosophical Order of Service, meets every Monday evening at 7 pm in the home of Gracia Fay and Robert Ellwood, 14 Krotona Hill. The simple ceremony and group meditation takes about 15 minutes. We read names both of humans and of companion animals in need of healing. Anyone, whether Theosophist or not, is welcome to attend, to submit names, and to be listed. Names are ordinarily kept on the list for a month, unless renewed. Names for this list may be sent to; both first and last names are preferred.

We welcome participation in this inner work.
