Place

Have you ever felt yourself welcomed by a place? You arrive to stay the night or attend a program. You enjoy your stay. But there is something more. You feel something different about the place. Perhaps you want stay a little longer or feel a subtle pull when you leave. You and the place have connected. Like a newly recognized friend, you know you will see each other again.

The Ojo is such a Place for many people. They come, they walk the trails, sit along the river, hear the breeze moving gently through cottonwood leaves, walk and sit with the night sky. And at one point, or many, they receive a gift from the Place. It could be a moment of perfect stillness and rest. It could be an instantaneous clarity and knowing in response to a question or situation. It could be a sense of renewal and purpose. Or as simple as a deep knowing that "all is well".

Glenna and Dave, way back in 2006, also experienced this sense of connection. The ensuing journey has been one of learning how to live on this land more in partnership rather than in ownership. In 2017 they presented to the In2in Thinking Annual Forum in Santa Clarita, CA. View a video of Glenna and Dave as they talk about their growing relationship with The Ojo, and more specifically, what they are learning about innovating and evolving in partnership with the living system of The Ojo.

We believe that the whole of life that is The Ojo cares about those who come here whether to take a hike, stay the evening, attend a meeting, or participate in a program, and has something of value to offer each person. Therefore, all the structures you will find here (buildings, trails, programs, spaces, etc.) are created to invite an experience of reciprocal connection with this Place.
