The Journey to Wellbeing is an intentional walking program created by the
Therapeutic Horticulture team of the Missouri Botanical Garden through
the generosity of the Bayer Fund and in collaboration with Cancer Support
Community of Greater St. Louis. The hope is to provide the program to survivors,
from newly diagnosed to post treatment, family members, caregivers and bereaved.
This 10-week program consists of 3 facilitated meetings, including a guided tour of
the Japanese Garden. The remaining weeks consist of self-guided walks, inspired
by themes related to natural elements such as wind, stone, tranquil water, fire, wood,
powerful water, and sky. Each participant will receive a guidebook which provides
suggested pauses for each walk, intended to increase awareness and encourage
time for reflection.
