The TEDMED conference brings together leading thinkers in the areas of medical technology and the healthcare industry to participate in a conversation as it relates to personal and public health. Much like the popular TED conference, TEDMED features brief presentations from speakers in diverse fields addressing some aspect of health and medicine.

In this talk actress Goldie Hawn introduces her Hawn Foundation, which she founded to teach children the practice of mindful awareness and to educate them about their brains. Dr. Dan Siegel joins her half way through the talk to discuss the scientific reasoning behind bringing these practices into schools. His findings at the Mindful Awareness Research Center at UCLA have demonstrated that mindful awareness practices can be more effective than prescription drugs when it comes to confronting many difficulties kids are facing in school. While these practices of reflection have previously been confined to religious traditions, Dr. Siegel feels that due to the scientific evidence backing their effectiveness they should now be incorporated into education along with reading, writing, and arithmetic.

Celebrating the conscious path :)
Reviewer Trish Dennison
 July 27, 2010
What a joy to see two beautiful people present this message of simple practice's that can transform the present and bless the future. I am excited to learn more about the Mind Up program as it corresponds to my own experience and teaching. I am presently self publishing a book to bring this message in my own Softer Gentler Way to inspire "Conscious Parenting 4 a Peaceful Planet. Compassionate awareness practiced in the home can balance with the present limited curriculum in our school system. I celebrate your celebrity statis Goldie and the magic that brings to excite people's imagination and inspire them to 'pay attention to what matters'. Again, bless you both. Trish Dennison
