Ruby Wax
12 July 2013

Ruby Wax – comedian, writer and mental health campaigner – shows us how our minds can jeopardize our sanity. With her own periods of depression and now a Masters from Oxford in Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy to draw from, she explains how our busy, chattering self-critical thoughts drive us to anxiety and stress. Helping you become the master, not the slave, of your mind, Ruby provides a manual on how to break the cycle in her new book Sane New World. Ruby is in conversation with Tom Dunne of Newstalk and the podcast was recorded in the Pavilion Theatre on Friday 7th June.
