It is an ecologically integrated sacred space, perched on 54 acres of pristine mountain terrain. Featuring a 1909 Greene and Greene historic home, this land was originally a Chumash Indian healing ground and has been a powerful place of physical and spiritual renewal for centuries. The intention of the sanctuary is to provide guests with a sense of "returning home to nature" and is surrounded by beautiful mountains, rock formations, and a flowing river.

"On retreat in Ojai, Carrie guided us on a beautiful hike and had us write a letter to ourselves we were to read a year later, in which basically you write in present tense of where you want to be in a year’s time. On the next day she had us create vision boards of what we want in life. The following year I went back and read my letter and cried all the way through it because everything I wrote had manifested. The emotion I felt in reading my letter was exactly how I feel today, and like I could have written it yesterday. I cannot say enough of how grateful I am to Carrie for the tools she has given me to manifest my dreams as well as the gift of understanding myself better so I can grow. The older I get the more I realize how important it is to have a spiritual mentor and guide to help me along my path of following my truth. I highly recommend Carrie to anyone who is searching for more self awareness and spiritual growth. You will not be disappointed! I am forever grateful!"
