Sane New World – Tour 2015
GRAND OPERA HOUSE YORK
Monday 14 September
“We are not equipped for this century, it’s too hard, too fast, and too full of fear; we just don’t have the bandwidth. Our brains can’t take so much information in a world where we’re bombarded by bad news and force-fed information. I can just about take in the weather then I’m exhausted. You open a newspaper, everyone’s dead. We’re only supposed to know what our neighbour is up to; if the woman next door to you is having sex with the man next door to her we need to know; but four doors down and it’s none of our business.”
Sane New World – The Tour helps us understand why we sabotage our own sanity and provides a manual on how to survive the 21st century, using Ruby’s knowledge from her recent Masters Degree in mindfulness-based cognitive therapy at Oxford University spiked with comedy.
Ruby Wax – comedian, writer and [/mental-health.html]mental health campaigner – shows us how our minds can jeopardize our sanity. With her own periods of depression to draw from, she explains how our busy, chattering, self-critical thoughts drive us to anxiety and stress. If we are to break the cycle, we need to understand how our brains work, rewire our thinking and find calm in a frenetic world.
RUBY WAX: SANE NEW WORLD – THE TOUR will visit venues across the UK and Australia in 2015.
