Comedian promotes mindfulness at the Mindful Living Show this summer
Beyond her career as an actor, author and mental health campaigner, Ruby Wax was recently awarded an OBE for services to mental health, so you’ll no doubt have heard about all her positive work in this area. From writing books such as Sane New World to presenting TedTalks about mental illness, she’s now spreading the word at the Mindful Living Show in London on Friday 2 June, presenting a session titled, ‘A Mindfulness Guide to the Frazzled’.
With a best-selling book and a show touring under the same name across the UK and Australia, attendees will be in for a treat thanks to Ruby’s quick wit and engaging manner. Her talk looks into how to find calm in a chaotic world, through neuroscience, mindfulness and comedy.
In addition to her talk at the event, a ‘Frazzled Cafe’ will feature at the festival, which is a project Ruby has been working on in conjunction with Marks & Spencer. These are safe spaces for people to meet and talk in a supportive and non-judgemental environment about the stresses of modern life.
The Mindful Living Show is the first event of its kind, promoting the benefits of mindfulness and meditation in your daily life. The event creators have a passion for bringing people together and helping them understand how mindfulness can improve their lives, which, of course, happiful is all for!
Anyone is welcome, from practiced experts to complete newbies. Your ticket to the event will include access to the seminars and practice sessions with the incredible speakers, authors, and teachers from the worlds of mindfulness, mediation and relaxation, so you can discover more at your own pace. If that wasn’t enough to give you a fantastic day, the event features both an Experience and Demo Zone, a beautiful Medicine Garden, a Zen Market and Mindful Eating Cafe, as well as many more services and goods to peruse.
