Learn how to train your brain to stay calm and stress less in this simple masterclass led by expert Ruby Wax
Rituals is on a mission to make mindfulness part of everyone’s busy lives. After all, when it comes to creating mental calm and clarity, the science is clear – mindfulness really does allow you to retrain your brain to cope with stresses large and small.
Our 5-day Mindfulness for Modern Life masterclass has been designed to serve as either an introduction to mindfulness for those that have never tried it, or to be used as a reference and guide for those that want to amplify their current practice.
Created with our mindfulness ambassador Ruby Wax, who has a Master’s in Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) from Oxford University, our daily videos, quick exercises and simple tips will introduce you to mindfulness, explain how it works, plus give you the practical tools to incorporate it into your everyday life. ‘Each day features an in-depth conversation between Ruby and Rituals’ Creative Director Dagmar Brusse (pictured above), during which Ruby speaks frankly about her journey to mindfulness, and the immense benefits it’s given her.’
“My approach to mindfulness is very simple,” says Ruby. “It’s for those who want to reign in negative thoughts by exercising what’s in our heads, just like we exercise any other muscle. If you have thoughts of: I’m not good enough, I’m a failure, nobody likes me - how do you deal with those? Most people say ‘I can’t, I’m overwhelmed, I’m burning out'. That’s where mindfulness comes in. Mindfulness is about accepting that you can't stop the thoughts, but you can stop what happens next.”
