Ruby Wax Launches NOW Live Events
NOW Live Events, a series of monthly talks and workshops taking place across London, launches this evening with Ruby Wax – Finding Calm in a Frenetic World
NOW Live Events promise to champion fun and engaging ways to live life in the moment – with contributions from experts and specialists in wellbeing & self-development.
The NOW Live Events launch, this evening at the Bishopsgate Institute, sees comedian, author and mental health campaigner Ruby Wax take on the role of therapist as she leads a mindfulness workshop – “demonstrating how our minds can send us mad as our internal critics play on a permanent loop tape”.
Future NOW Live Events include:
Claudia Hammond: How to Change your Relationship with Time | 29 January | 7pm – 8.30pm | Conway Hall | £15
They Say: Does each year feel as if it goes by faster than the one before? Why does time slow down when you’re afraid? Why do we take on more than we can fit in and then find ourselves rushing? Claudia Hammond, broadcaster and author of the award-winning book Time Warped, will guide you through the latest research, which will explain how we perceive time and how we can change our relationship with it.
How to Change your Life in 2014: John Paul Flintoff, Tom Chatfield and Anne Karpf | 26 February | 7pm – 8.30pm | Conway Hall | £20
They Say: In collaboration with The School of Life, three thought-provoking contributors will be in conversation with Suzy Greaves, Editor of Psychologies magazine, exploring a number of big questions aimed at helping you live better in 2014: investigative journalist John Paul Flintoff, author of How to Change the World; writer and commentator Tom Chatfield, author of How to Thrive in the Digital Age; and medical sociologist and journalist Anne Karpf, author of How to Age.

I am Joint Editor at To Do List. I like: nice pubs, film marathons, not doing real marathons, bad comedy, plays/musicals with shorter second halves, and the Oxford comma.
