Wellbeing is a skill. Cultivate it with us.

A visit to an art gallery can provide the means of escape from the pressures and preoccupations of everyday life. So many paintings can enable us to enter a different state of being – and one in which time seems to acquire an entirely different character. But Autumn Leaves carries an especially eerie beauty and seems to speak to us across a chasm of 160 years. As we explore its tranquility, are we able to rediscover in ourselves a sense of calmness and insight?

Join tour guide John Ward in a tour of Autumn Leaves by John Everett Millais and discover the 5 Ways to Wellbeing and the secrets behind this painting.

Everyone welcome
