The Hawn Foundation's MindUp program and the Jha Lab’s research on the cognitive neuroscience of mindfulness were the topics of a joint lecture by Goldie Hawn and Amishi at a private event in Aspen, Colorado. The event was generously supported and organized by Glenda Greenwald, Lexie Potamkin, and Soledad Hurst. Amishi will be returning to Aspen in September to give a lecture entitled ‘Improving Attention and Working Memory with Mindfulness Training’ at the Aspen Brain Forum.
