Ruby Wax, the Monk and the Neuroscientist

How To Be HumanBuxton Opera Housebutton--dates-and-timesDates & Times

We can’t stop the future from arriving, no matter what drugs we’re on. But even if nearly every part of us becomes robotic, mechanical fingers crossed we'll still have our minds. 

Hopefully we'll use them for things like compassion, instead of just chasing what’s ‘better’ like a hamster on a wheel. If we can do that, we’re on the yellow brick road to happiness. 

With a little help from monk Gelong Thubten, who explains how the mind works, and neuroscientist Ash Ranpura who explains where everything that makes us ‘us’ can be found in the brain, 'How To Be Human' is the show you need to help you upgrade your mind as much as you’ve upgraded your iPhone. 

This is the follow up to Ruby’s sell out shows ‘Sane New World’ and ‘Frazzled’.
