Ruby Wax’s Guide to Mindfulness

In Conversation With Hannah MacInnes

Drawing together everything she has learned before and during the pandemic, mental health advocate and superstar comic Ruby Wax offers a mindful guide to surviving life.

Ruby Wax is not only the wittiest comic and broadcaster ever to grace British television screens. She has also transformed the way we think about mental health, helping us to recognise that we’re not alone in feeling overwhelmed by the stresses of modern life.

In this livestream event, she will draw upon her training in Mindfulness at the University of Oxford and her rich experience as a mental health campaigner and advocate to help us navigate what she calls ‘The Big Six’ – difficult emotions, uncertainty, loneliness, change, dissatisfaction and death – that have become ever more prescient since the pandemic.

This livestream will help you work through your mental health and provide a roadmap to a healthier, and happier mind as well as giving you the right tools to be able to deal with the challenges of day-to-day life.
