As you will know if you’ve read my ‘More About Me’ page, I am keen on well being and all that it entails. As part of my ongoing quest to manage and maintain my well being, I spent a Friday night with Ruby Wax.
Ruby Wax, was known as a comedian but is now more well known for her amazing work in the mental health. It was a huge pleasure to be on the front row of her show ‘Sane New World’.
Ruby shared her experience of depression and how she went from comedy to Oxford University to study the mind. She then uses honesty, comedy and her experiences to explain the mind, mental health, mental illness and mindfulness.
She was very funny, informative, motivating and inspiring.
The great news is that Ruby is planning for the show to be put onto Youtube, so in time, everyone will be ale to watch it. I would highly recommend it.
There is a book that accompanies the show, which I have also read. I plan to do a separate blog post about the book.
Ruby has also done a really good TED Talk on a similar nature – check it out here:
Thank you Ruby Wax – long may your amazing, beneficial work continue.
Has anyone else seen the show Sane New World, read the book or watched Ruby on TED Talks? I’d love to know what you think.
