Travel Tips for Ojai
J. Krishnamurti in Ojai.
The eminent Indian writer J. Krishnamurti lived in the Ojai valley for several decades. One of the most crucial formative experiences in his early life took place here, the infamous kundalini awakening under the pepper tree... I made a pilgrimage to the pepper tree, which still stands to this day, not far from the Krishnamurti Library.
Yoga and New Age Practiioners
Ojai is loaded with yoga schools, alternative health healers and massage therapists. Check out the bulletin board at Rainbow bridge for local possibilities. Also check out the website below for a good starting point.

Bikers and the Ojai Deer Lodge
There is a really nice motorcycle road behind Ojai which brings many bikers into town. The Deer Lodge is a Biker Bar/tavern which includes dancing. At night this place is filled with bikers and locals alike. Very cozy and unusual place with fireplace, wood and stone walls for a very rustic appearence. Check out the interesting website for more info. Varied menu includes venison, buffalo and lobster.
Local Artist Creates Beautiful Tile
RTK Studios is a tile workshop that specilizes in reproduciton tiles of Spanish, Craftsman and art deco designs. I think their reproductions are better than the originals. Their studio is located in downtown Ojai in a lovely craftsman bungalow.
I have mentioned RTK studios before in other California pages (Catalina & Malibu) , because I am a big fan of their work. The studio produces tiles that are literally works of art. Their studio is open by appointment only, so you must call ahead. If you have the time, the studio is a real treat and I highly recommend it. One of a kind tile tables, framed tile murals, and other works of art are on display and for sale. The back of the studio has overruns, which are just perfect for creating a boarder or frieze for a bathroom or kitchen remodel. I have also seen the tiles used in pool designs with great success. Prices are reasonable considering the qualtiy and craftsmanship. Tiles start at about $15. The studio has overruns, plus field and trim tiles, and of course they take on custom commisions as well. Visit their website for more info and beautiful examples of their work.
