Ruby Wax

Join Chorleywood Bookshop and Mindfulness expert Ruby Wax on Friday 2nd February, 7.30pm at The Junction, Christ Church, WD3 5SG for an evening of contemplation, as we explore the lost art of how to be human.

Enter Ruby Wax… she wrote this book with a little help from a monk who explains how the mind works and a neuroscientist who explains what makes us ‘us’ in the brain. ‘How to be Human’ answers every question you’ve ever had about evolution, thoughts, emotions, the body, addictions, relationships, kids, the future and compassion.

Ruby’s new book is extremely funny and the only manual you’ll need to help you upgrade your mind as frequently as you’ve upgraded your iPhone. We cannot wait to see you all there!

Event book voucher £15.00 and includes a FREE copy of 'How to be Human', Ruby Wax's brand new book (RRP £14.99).
