Participants will visit the Morikami Gardens for quiet contemplation as often as they wish over a 3-month period. A specially developed journal, designed to enhance the experience, will be used as a guide and a means to record personal thoughts through the 12 themed garden strolls. There will be three meetings with Dr. Ruth McCaffrey, Associate Professor at the Christine E. Lynn College of Nursing at Florida Atlantic University. An explanation about the program will be provided during the first meeting; the second one, which will take place half-way through the program, will be used to answer any questions that may appear during the first few walks. Finally, the last meeting will take place at the end of the program and will include a discussion of participants' experiences.
