How To Be Human

Ruby Wax
Thu 01 February 2018,

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, Gelong Thubten and Ash Ranpura are in conversation with Jenny Lacey to discuss brains, bodies and mindfulness.
