Action for Happiness Podcast

And now for the good news - With Ruby Wax

March 14, 2021

In today’s episode we are again going to do a throwback to a wonderful conversation that our director Dr Mark Williamson had with the wonderful and longtime AFH friend, Ruby Wax. 

Ruby is very well known for her successful TV career, but what is less well known is her long term struggle with depression. Ruby then stumbled across Mindfulness and the work of Mark Williams that sent her on a journey of self healing.  Ruby went on to get a degree in Mindfulness at Oxford university and was able to transition what she had learned about the brain and incorporate it in her work. In part two we dig into ruby’s new book, and now for the good news, and if you stick around to the end end, Ruby graciously guides us through a brief mindful exercise.
