Ruby Wax began her acting career with the Royal Shakespeare Company and went on to write and perform in her own hugely popular television programmes for the BBC and Channel 4. In recent years, Ruby has turned her attention to the study of psychotherapy and neuroscience, receiving her Master’s degree in Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy from Oxford University. She is the author of the best-selling book Sane New World. Described as a guide to saner living, Ruby explains how our minds can jeopardize our sanity and that to break the cycle, we need to understand how our brains work, rewire our thinking and find calm in a frenetic world. Her show of the same name, combines neuroscience, mindfulness and comedy, helping audiences to become the masters, not the slaves of their minds. She presented her TedTalk at TedGlobal 2012 “What’s So Funny about Mental Illness?” and was recently awarded an OBE for services to mental health. Ruby latest book, “A Mindfulness Guide for the Frazzled” is an outrageously witty, smart and accessible guide for using mindfulness to combat stress.
