Ruby Wax talks mindfulness - live and FREE


Not here we're afraid, we're not quite there yet. But Ms Wax will be at an event to talk about her new title A Mindfulness Guide for the Frazzled. She'll be in-house at Blackwell's Bookshop Oxford on Wednesday, 13th January, and the talk is completely free.


Excellent, that. Of course, Ms Wax now holds a masters degree in mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, having graduated from Kellogg College, Oxford in 2013. That in mind, you can be sure to be informed as surely only she knows how.

To read more about the synopsis of A Mindfulness Guide for the Frazzled, published by Penguin, you could gohere. Or, should you not want to leave the site just yet (thank you), here's part of it for you. 

I know what you're thinking - what if I don't want to stare at a butterfly wing or hear the single ting of a wind chime? My definition of mindfulness isn't about sitting erect on a hillock, legs in a knot, humming a mantra that's probably the phone book sung backwards, it's something that can help us all: learning to notice your thoughts and feelings so you can truly experience life.

Again, the talk will be free, and well worth attending we're sure. The book looks to be jam-packed with wisdom delivered in Ms Wax's own unique way, and could be a face full of fresh air with which to blow away 2015's cobwebs, or breathe life into the New Year.

If you attend, we hope you enjoy it.
