Each step that you take on this Path to Well-being is a time to empty your mind;
to open to and relax into the beauty and peace that surrounds you;
to release thoughts and focus on your breath, your steps,
the plants, the trees, the water,
the breeze that caresses your skin, the warmth of the sun,
the softness of the snow.
It is a time to use all of your senses to connect to the natural world around you
and to the reality of the present moment.
It is a time to see, to hear, to smell and to feel.
It is a time to shut out the the extraneous noise of the world,
to tone down the chatter of your mind, and to
listen for the quietest sound.
Klehm Arboretum and Botanic Garden is proud to present A Path to Well-being. A Path to Well-being is a nine-unit, self-guided program designed to help promote one’s emotional, physical and mental health and overall sense of well-being. This nine-walk program offers each participant:
- one A Path to Well-being guidebook with all nine units,
- one orientation session (scheduled for Thursday 9/30),
- admission to Klehm Arboretum & Botanic Garden for all nine units,
- and one follow-up session available eight weeks after the orientation.
For the orientation session on 9/30, wear footwear suitable for outdoor walking and dress appropriately for whatever the weather might bring. Bring a mask for indoor use and those rare times when physical distancing may be difficult. Because the orientation is an after hours program and the arboretum will be closed to the general public, please plan to arrive a few minutes early as the gates will close promptly at 6:00 PM. Group size will be limited, so register early to be sure to secure a spot!
ADMISSION: $48 public, $36 Klehm members
