Across the country, the revolutionary MindUP program, which was developed under the auspices of the Hawn Foundation, established by Goldie Hawn, is teaching children vital social and emotional skills. By understanding how their brains work, children discover where their emotions come from and become more self-aware. They learn to appreciate the sensory aspects of their lives and to value the positive effects of mindfulness, compassion, and kindness. This, in turn, empowers them to manage and reduce their own stress-and helps them be happy. Those who have seen the remarkable effects of this program have been eager to learn how to implement it in their own homes and use its practices for themselves, too. Now, for the first time, its secrets are being shared with all parents and children in 10 Mindful Minutes. Download and start listening now!

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kristy | 1/22/2014

    " I could not get into this book. Although the premise of taking at least 10 minutes out of your day to be more mindful (focused, appreciative, aware) sounds good, I could have gotten the message in just 10 pages instead of a whole book. I did like Goldie Hawn's personal reflections, and I think that she sounds like someone I would enjoy being around. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katherine | 1/10/2014

    " Enjoyed reading this to teach myself to be more mindful and hopefully my child will follow by example. "

    " The day this book came out I saw Goldie Hawn interviewed about it and knew immediately I'd like to read it. Very insightful tools to help parents reduce the stress abd anxiety in their children's life, as well as their own. Scientific info on how the brain works under worry or happiness was very interesting and not wordy but still thorough. Book would make a wonderful gift for any parent! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gloria | 12/24/2013

    " Thougthtful, provocative, I enjoyed it. Used a few of the ideas with my neices and nephews and had a great time. This book tells us nothing that we don't already know, however pointing it out with gentle reminders adds to its endearment. I have recommended this book to quite a few people already. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chrishna | 12/20/2013

    " A friend told me to read this and it was great advice! Hawn gives simple, step-by-step instructions on teaching mindfulness and meditative breathing to children. As a family, we have been going over one section per week, and I am already seeing progress. The children are using the terminology and noticing when their "Guard Dogs" come out and trying to use their "Wise Old Owls" to make less impulsive decisions when they are stressed or upset. This book is simple to read, simple to understand and simple to implement. I highly recommend it to anyone hoping to increase the emotional intelligence of their children. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jenna | 4/13/2013

    " Maybe if this hadn't been an audio book I would have stuck with it because I could have skimmed through the stuff I already know about how the brain works. I was looking for some practical advice on teaching mindfulness and gave up on it before I found any. Maybe will pick up at another time. "
