The Theosophical Society in the Ojai Valley

The Ojai Valley Lodge is a local branch of the Theosophical Society in America. It offers study meetings at Krotona School, 46 Krotona Street, Ojai, California. They are scheduled for the first and third Tuesdays of each month, from 7:00 PM until 8:00 PM.

During these meetings, we sit in a circle to study a designated Theosophical topic. Each evening, we choose a moderator, read an excerpt, discuss it as a group, support each other, and exchange references and concepts. It is a welcoming, friendly atmosphere, focused on sharing our experiences with the text and with Theosophy.

Each year, our series of study meetings starts the first Tuesday of October and goes until the third Tuesday of May. Meetings are free of charge. Donations are greatly appreciated – donate here.

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.

We share the meditation below for those who are unable to attend in person.

From that center of peace within …
