Author and comedian Ruby Wax presents “A Mindfulness Guide for the Frazzled” on March 29 – in partnership with Mosaic Community Services, Maryland’s largest and most comprehensive provider of community-based mental health and addiction services.
Outrageously witty, smart and accessible, Wax shows ordinary people how and why to change for good. This is an invaluable evening for anyone wanting to rewrite the script of their life. In addition to her performance, Wax will be responding to questions from the audience.
Wax began her acting career with the Royal Shakespeare Company. She went on to write and perform in her own hugely popular television programs for the BBC and Channel 4 and was Script Editor on all seasons of Absolutely Fabulous.
Wax now turns her attention to the study of psychotherapy and neuroscience, recently earning a master’s degree in Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy from Oxford University. In her best selling book, “Sane New World,” Wax explains how our minds can jeopardize our sanity, and to break the cycle, we need to understand how our brains work, rewire our thinking and find calm in a frenetic world. Sane New World has toured both internationally and in London’s West End.
She presented her TedTalk at Ted Global 2012 “What’s So Funny about Mental Illlness”? and was recently awareded an OBE for services to mental health.
Her latest book, “A Mindfulnes Guide for the Frazzled,” published in January 2016 provides advice for relationships, parents, children and teenagers based on her studies of Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy at Oxford University.
