Adam Rumack

Executive Co-Director

Adam has a Masters in Business Administration from the Monterey (Middleberry) Institute of International Studies and a BA in Modern Literary Studies from UC Santa Cruz.  He has traveled widely and is a lifelong learner.  He teaches daily yoga classes in the Ashtanga Mysore tradition at the Ojai Yoga Shala, which he began with his partner Alana Mitnick in 2016.  He shares council in California State Prisons and guides workshops in Ojai, at the Esalen Institute in Big Sur, and at organizations in the US and abroad.  

I was initiated into the world of mystery, wildness, and community as a high school senior visiting The Ojai Foundation in 2000 on a rites-of-passage trip. Since 2011, I have courted this mystery as a council trainer, wilderness guide, and steward of TOF’s work in Southern California and beyond. This place has allowed tremendous growth and positive transformation for me and so many others, and it’s an honor to serve this world-changing organization.
