A New Age foundation founded by Dr. Joan Halifax in Ojai,
California. It was situated on 40 acres of former semiwilderness
land in the Upper Ojai Valley, some 80 miles from
Los Angeles. Through the 1980s, the foundation offered retreats
with well-known healers, scientists, artists, and others
from various religious traditions and spiritual disciplines. At
the end of the 1980s the foundation ran into a zoning quarrel
with the community that eventually led to its demise.
