Ruby Wax, The Monk and The Neuroscientist

Ruby Wax invites you to use more of your mind for compassion, instead of just chasing what’s ‘better’, like a hamster on a wheel. 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.

This is the show you need to help you upgrade your mind as much as you’ve upgraded your iPhone.
