Award-Winning Actress & Advocate

Goldie Hawn is an Academy Award-winning actress, producer, director, best-selling author and children’s advocate. She is the founder of The Hawn Foundation, a public charity with a mission to equip children with the social and emotional skills they need to lead smarter, healthier, and happier lives.

Alarmed by increases in school violence, youth depression and suicide, and the persistent failure of the education system to help children cope with increasingly stressful lives, Hawn began her Foundation in 2003, applying cutting edge scientific research to create education programs that support the social and emotional development of children. Working with leading neuroscientists, educators, psychologists and researchers, the Foundation developed MindUP™, an evidence-based curriculum and teaching model for grades K-12 that provides tools to help children self-regulate and understand their own emotions, moods and behaviors; reduce stress and anxiety; sharpen concentration; increase empathy; and improve academic performance.

Hawn authored two best-selling books, a memoir A Lotus Grows in the Mud, in 2005 and in 2011, 10 Mindful Minutes, offering guidance on raising healthy, joyful, and resilient children. In 2015, Hawn released 10 Mindful Minutes: A Journal, a practical application to her last book, offering prompts and exercises to enhance the reader’s daily life through mindfulness practice.

Goldie has lived with and loved her partner Kurt Russell for 30 years and has four grown children, Oliver and Kate Hudson, Wyatt Russell and stepson Boston Russell. They have been blessed with five grandchildren. Hawn believes, “children light the path to joy” and has dedicated much of her life's work to creating innovative solutions to help children thrive.

“Her talk was great! We ordered her book “10 Mindful Minutes” and sold out of every copy right after her talk.”
