Journey to Well-being

Japanese Garden

A nurturing and therapeutic nature experience

The Journey to Well-Being is an intentional walking program, designed to aid participants in experiencing the calming, restorative powers of nature. The Japanese Garden serves as a peaceful setting for people to explore their relationship with nature and with themselves.

This 10-week program consists of three facilitated meetings, including a guided tour of the Japanese Garden. The remaining weeks consist of seven self-guided walks, inspired by themes related to natural elements such as wind, stone, tranquil water, fire, wood, powerful water and sky. Participants will receive a guide book which provides suggested pauses for each walk, intended to increase awareness and encourage time for reflection. Non-members will receive 7 garden admission passes, in order to complete the walks.

Participants will receive:

  • Journey to Well-being guidebook
  • 7 Garden admission tickets (non-members)
  • 3 facilitated meetings
