ABOUT THE PROGRAM

Strolls for Well-Being is a no-cost, self-guided program focusing on themes such as joy, gratitude, and awareness. With a guidebook in hand, participants take twelve experiential walks through the diverse and textured landscapes at Bloedel Reserve during regular open hours.

Participants attend two mandatory meetings: an initial orientation and a final closing meeting to share experiences and insights. For participant safety, we do not allow “observers” at meetings. If you’d like to bring someone, they must be registered as a participant or are invited to walk the grounds during the meeting.

“There is a magical quality to Bloedel, unlike any other place I’ve visited. I am once transformed, energized, inspired, relaxed, and released from daily cares to be completely present with my own soul and the wonders of nature.”

“Having always tried to respect nature and loved to “take a walk in the woods”, I found the Strolls for Well-being at Bloedel Reserve to be a stimulating rebirth for me. The program not only brought me a fresh awareness of nature, but it also inspired the awareness of my inner-most feelings. It allowed me to face an emotional challenge which I suspect would or could have been debilitating. My gratitude goes out to Bloedel Reserve for sponsoring the program and facilitating its implementation.”

“Strolls For Well-Being  has not only reconnected me with nature but it has reconnected me with myself.”
