Sane New World - The Tour 2014: Ruby Wax
"'We are not equipped for this century, it's too hard, too fast, and too full of fear; we just don't have the bandwidth. Our brains can't take so much information in a world where we're bombarded by bad news and force-fed information. I can just about take in the weather then I'm exhausted. You open a newspaper, everyone's dead. We're only supposed to know what our neighbour is up to; if the woman next door to you is having sex with the man next door to her we need to know; but four doors down and it's none of our business' (Ruby Wax).
Sane New World - The Tour helps us understand why we sabotage our own sanity and provides a manual on how to survive the 21st century, using Ruby's knowledge from her recent Masters Degree in mindfulness-based cognitive therapy at Oxford University, spiked with comedy."
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).
