Programs at the Institute are in-depth experiences presented in an interactive format designed to enable individuals and organizations to embody profound and sustainable transformations of the self, team and culture.

The Institute offers a wide array of courses and programs for individuals, teams & organizations, including:

  • Experiential Learning Workshops and Programs

Courses contain innovative, research-based methodologies from the forefront of the leadership, transformation and human potential movements.


The Institute for Embodied Wisdom is headquartered in the beautiful Ojai Valley, 30 miles south of Santa Barbara, California.  Nestled in a quaint valley, Ojai is a traveler’s dream. It is surrounded by beautiful mountains, yet is only 20 minutes drive from the Pacific Ocean. We moved the Institute to Ojai so that our visitors can take advantage of this magical setting for optimum learning.
