Never miss another 'Ruby Wax' show
Frazzled: A Guide To Mindfulness : Ruby Wax
"* This event has been cancelled.
Ruby Wax is a much loved US born comedian, actor and writer, along with being the ‘it girl’ of mental health campaigning. She has a Master’s degree in Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy from Oxford University.
This event is a follow up to her sell out touring show, and best-selling book, ‘Sane New World’, which helps us understand why we sabotage our sanity with our own thinking."
Info provided by the Event Organiser
American comedienne who made a career in the United Kingdom as part of the alternative comedy scene in the 1980s. Known for her extensive comedy and television interview career.
Ruby has campaigned tirelessly to raise awareness about mental health issues, including speaking at Downing Street to raise money for neuroscience research. In 2013, she obtained a Masters Degree in Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy from Oxford University to increase her understanding of the brain and used this knowledge as the basis for her books Sane New World: Taming the Mind and A Mindfulness Guide for the Frazzled both of which became Sunday Times number one bestsellers on publication. She was awarded an OBE for her services to mental health in the Honorary British Awards to Foreign Nationals in 2015.
She has become a leading speaker on mental issues including appearances at The Home Office, MI5, Apple, Goldman Sachs, KPMG, Merril Lynch, Bank of America, Downing Street, the House of Lords, Google, The Cabinet-Director Generals and TEDGlobal 2012, plus various UK National Health Trusts and charities.
'Wax has an extraordinary mind, and she has brought it to bear with her trademark wit... a ruby beyond price' (Stephen Fry).
