Who We Are

Present and Positive is a small retreat center and community space located in Idyllwild, California. We offer a variety of classes, workshops, retreats and session work 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

Idyllwild is about two hours from San Diego and Los Angeles, and one hour from Palm Springs.  The town itself is perched at an elevation of 5,300 feet between Tahquitz Peak and San Jacinto Mountain in the San Bernardino National Forest.

Our Principles

We believe that all people have everything they need within themselves to be free and to achieve their highest purpose. Present and Positive aspires to serve all beings in this way.  To help each person find the strength and courage within to engage directly with life and nature, and to gradually heal and transform, without relying on anyone else, any substance, or any dogma.

Thank You!
