Mindfulness: the tenth anniversary of the book that started the movement. Hosted by Ruby Wax, celebrate the life-changing bestseller with authors Professor Mark Williams and Dr Danny Penman

Mindfulness: A Practical Guide to Finding Peace in a Frantic World was first published ten years ago, in May 2011, by Professor Mark Williams and Dr Danny Penman. It was the first book to bring mindfulness practice to a mainstream audience and has since become a genre-defining, classic text enjoyed by over a million readers across the world.

Now, join Professor Williams and Dr Penman in conversation with Ruby Wax for this exclusive event as they return to the book that started the movement. In conversation, they’ll reveal a set of simple yet powerful practices that you can incorporate into daily life to break the cycle of anxiety, stress, unhappiness, and exhaustion. Together, they’ll delve into the history behind mindfulness-based cognitive therapy and how it can be as effective as drugs for preventing depression. This event will encourage you to find your inner happiness, as they explain how investing a few minutes each day will put you back in control of your life once again.

Authoritative and engaging, this is a life-changing evening that is not to be missed.

‘If you want to free yourself from anxiety and depression, and feel truly at ease with yourself, then read this book’ Ruby Wax

‘Peace can’t be achieved in the outside world unless we have peace on the inside. Mark Williams and Danny Penman’s book gives us this peace’ Goldie Hawn
