Goldie Hawn, What happens to Hollywood superstars when they semi-retire? They meditate, of course. And if anyone is going to do it with a smile on her face, it’s Goldie Hawn.
Except for her, inner peace has turned into an international mission. This week, Hawn is in the UK to promote her meditation manual, 10 Mindful Minutes. Already a New York Times bestseller, the book is aimed at parents and teachers in the hope they will encourage children to practise the basics of yoga and meditation.
In recent years, Hawn, 66, has reinvented herself as a philanthropist and sort of “mindfulness campaigner”. Because, if she wants such a job description to exist, she will make it happen. She launched educational trust the Hawn Foundation in 2005, with the motto: “To create the leaders of tomorrow we need to nurture the children of today.”
The foundation specialises in teaching social and emotional skills to enhance children’s academic performance. It uses a programme called MindUP that Hawn developed with neurologist Judy Willis using forms of meditation and “mindfulness”.
One US reviewer puts it: “Goldie Hawn has always been the perfect role model for happiness.” A recent profile described her as “the most deliriously contented person alive”.
But is she really? Last week, there was the surprise announcement that Hawn has withdrawn from the forthcoming HBO series The Viagra Diaries, the new show from Sex and the City creator Darren Star. Hawn was set to play the lead as a woman abandoned by her midlife crisis husband and facing life alone for the first time in 35 years.
There have been online rumours of “creative differences” and tales of numerous men reading opposite Hawn and somehow things not working out. Doubtless Hawn will find some way to put a positive spin on affairs.
