When setting a goal, a common phrase that is used to assist in overcoming an obstacle is, “mind over matter. Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t — either way you’re right.” However, there are times when the mind may lose track of what is important and a reset is needed. Lao Tzu once stated, “if you correct your mind, the rest of your life will fall into place.” Sometimes meditation, yoga, or a spiritual weekend can allow you to restore your mind and set a new calming intention for a more positive outlook on your day.

When searching for the perfect place in Ventura to rejuvenate your mind, you have multiple options that challenge you mentally, physically, and emotionally. You can begin your day with a physical meditation at Jai Rhythm Yoga, where they offer multiple classes that vary in level. Based on your needs, you can choose a class that’s restorative, a foundation flow (Vinyasa) class, or meditative. After a restorative yoga class, an amazing smoothie and bowl to assist in rejuvenating the body can be found at Harvest Café. With multiple delicious gluten-free, vegan options and coffee choices, this is one of the best places to come to reward your body after a challenging and mindful yoga practice.

Now that your mind and body are at peace, it is time to have a mental awakening. Journey Home provides you with a store filled with healing crystals and the option to get your tarot cards read.

The Dalai Lama states, “we can never obtain peace in the outer world until we make peace with ourselves.” Whether it is a restorative yoga class, crystals, or delicious smoothies that assist in helping you obtain inner peace, Ventura offers multiple options that allow you to set your own spiritual intention and pursue that journey.
