  • Why The Florrest?
    The Florrest is a unique property with domes immersed in a private 153 acre forest with creeks and wildlife; there's also a national forest with Indian mounds within it. It is rare to have so much natural space to yourself that is peaceful and feels out of this world. The owner Mena, established this space with the intention of being able to share the magic and harmony with others. She is passionate about wellness, transformation, aligning with lives that we love, sovereignty, and collaborating with souls who celebrate rising together. She loves hosting souls who honor the land and individual sovereignty. This is an opportunity to reconnect in nature and to rest and awaken to deep fulfillment. ​
