Who We Are

Present and Positive is a community of individuals who share the common goals of self-awareness, personal development, and positive change in the world. We offer a variety of activities, community events, workshops and performances to the local and global community. We are a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization, and operate entirely on a donation-based system.

Where We Are

We are located in the unique mountain community of Idyllwild, California. Our small retreat center and community space is perched at an elevation of roughly 5,300 feet on the slopes of Mt. San Jacinto. We are surrounded by San Bernardino National Forest: a beautiful, lush area repleat with outdoor activities, including world-class rock climbing, mountain biking and hiking. Roughly equidistant from San Diego and Los Angeles, we are about two hours from either, and very close to Palm Springs.

Our Principles

We believe that all people intuitively know what they need to thrive. When free of distractions and surrounded by nature and a supportive community, most people will naturally gravitate towards greater happiness, harmony and peace. We offer temporary accommodations for those who want to stay with us for such benefits. We ask our guests to contribute to the community by leaving something behind that is meaningful or beneficial to others.

Thank You!

Thank you for visiting and taking the tour. We hope to see you soon at one of our events! Please write to us at info@presentandpositive.com if you have any questions.
