About Cultured Forest



Cultured Forest started with the intent to aid our clients in finding balance and well-being by promoting awe inspiring experiences in Art and Nature.  We believe in creating environments and opportunities for growth. 

 We do this by encouraging our clients to find healing opportunities whether it be through the appreciation of a beautiful work of art, a traveling adventure or Forest Bathing. Forest Bathing involves the art of taking in the forest atmosphere through mindfulness exercises that improve productivity, creativity and health.  We believe an enriched life of cultural and outdoor experiences leads to empowered individuals and communities.
