It’s a miracle evolution worked at all. What were the chances that, out of some stardust, we would make it through to now with our full set of teeth intact? No other planet could pull this off. They haven’t made a single cell of anything interesting, while we’ve already sold 12 trillion McDonald’s burgers.

– Ruby Wax

Comedian, writer and performer Ruby Wax, with some help from monk Gelong Thubten and neuroscientist Ash Ranpura, has delved deeply into what it means to be human in an age obsessed with the latest technology. She now provides a manual to upgrade our minds so they don’t get left behind.

In this event Ruby Wax and Gelong Thubten are in conversation with Jenny Lacey to discuss brains, bodies and mindfulness.

The Festival of Ideas endeavours to hold events in venues that are accessible to all. Watershed’s cinemas and event spaces are all located on the first floor which is accessible via the lift located in the main entrance foyer at Box Office. Once on the first floor there is level access to all areas. The venue has a hearing loop system. If you have specific access concerns it is advisable to contact the venue direct. Wheelchair users and visitors who require an assistant may bring a companion free of charge. Please contact Watershed Box Office (details above) to arrange this.

We sometimes film and photograph Festival of Ideas events. Please let us know if you do not wish to be filmed or photographed.
