Beautiful Minds exists to support Australian families and help them to become happier, stronger and kinder. Founded 18 years ago, we are in 935 schools, host 170 one day workshops and 55 retreats annually.


I started Beautiful Minds seventeen years ago with just two fundamental questions.

What are they feeling?

And –

What if?

What if we could give young people of diversity, from all walks of life a pride in daily life so they believe they are deserving of the world?

What if Beautiful Minds could be the catalyst and a vehicle for children to grow their spirits, grow their character and achieve the things they wish and hope for in this life?

My dreams came true a thousand-fold. Every single day, I get to work alongside my truly hardworking and talented team and have front row seats for the best show you can imagine. Watching young people transform before our eyes.

I wish you, and your children – our kind of success.

“Imagine having your own private coach, that person you get to talk to and really share what is going on for you. Imagine the change you will see in how you think about yourself and how you handle your emotions.Being a part of a community that comes together to learn and share is really special – no more isolation.” – Marina Passalaris
