Wood Dragon Inn

Mental Health Residential at the Wood Dragon Inn

About Wood
Dragon Inn

Our goal is to embrace the present reality fully, living in each moment with a sense of purpose. Letting go of the haunting past and steering clear of the predictable future, we firmly anchor ourselves in the present – a realm where endless possibilities and existence converge.

Each day becomes an opportunity for transformation, growth, and appreciation. It is at the exact moment we find ourselves that we must revel in and discover joy. Life inevitably brings storms and dark days, but just as not every day can be dark and dreary, we acknowledge the balance. 

Nature is the best place to allow this reality to sink in. We are not aiming for bliss, and we are not aiming for misery. We stand firmly on the middle ground of now. Contentment and acceptance.

central metaphor of nature

The emphasis at The Wood Dragon Inn is on self-cultivation and transformation. We ground ourselves with this central metaphor in nature and agriculture.

Just as a horticulturalist must attentively tend their garden, we must focus on removing that which we do not want to grow, stop planting that which we do not want to grow, and start planting and creating the conditions for a new kind of garden to emerge from the ashes and soot of the old.

Nature is our best teacher. That is why we decided to start The Wood Dragon Inn in Idyllwild, California. This is a magical place.
