Goldie Hawn’s 10 Mindful Minutes

For those of you who were around in 1968 glued to Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In, this is how you remember Goldie Hawn.  Who was Goldie Hawn, really.  Perhaps if she were a rising star in this day and age we’d know more about her personal life.  But in those days she was a ditzy personna, almost a caricuature of herself.  In a new book, 10 Mindful Minutes, Goldie reveals much more of the gifted anatomy above her neck.  Mildly dyslexic as a child, as she reflects, Ms. Hawn was placed in the lowest reading group in her class.  She was a “C” student whose parents cried “Hallelujah!” if she brought home a “B” because they knew she’d tried her best.

Goldie has enjoyed more than 15 minutes of collective fame in her TV, film, and stage career, and she summons all of her optimism to become enough of a student of brain science to promote a powerful message through her Foundation and MindUp program.  You can learn more about it by watching a video of Goldie and Dr. Dan Siegel through a blog piece I’ve just written on the professional side here:
