The mental health organisation Beautiful Minds is holding a one day workshop for pre-teen girls in Lennox Head on Sunday 27 June 2021.
The workshop will have a strong focus on inner strength, and strategies to navigate ever-changing friendships, with tools designed by Stanford University to deal with inner bully chatter, feeling overwhelmed, mindfulness, creativity and more.
Beautiful Minds founder, educator and author, Marina Passalaris, will be running the June workshop, bringing with her a team of qualified educators that work with children across the country in over 935 schools.
‘Young girls need a set of daily habits to ensure their mind fitness is something they learn to look after from a young age,’ said Marina Passalaris. ‘At Beautiful Minds, we sit in the preventative space to set girls up for life. Our events are colourful, fun, dynamic and wrap learning around a beautiful day.’
Roberta O’Brien, Coordinator Community Facilities for Ballina Shire Council, said ‘We are so fortunate to have Beautiful Minds put Lennox Head on their national workshop tour. It will really benefit our local youth, providing education and support that can sometimes be difficult to find in regional areas.
‘Their workshops sell out across the country, so we hope local families see the value these sessions bring,’ she said.
The one day workshop is suitable for girls aged 8-12. It is Australian Education Department and NDIS funding approved.
The workshop will be held at the Lennox Head Cultural Centre, 1 Mackney Lane, Lennox Head.
Ms Passalari said, ‘This award winning program has been supporting Australian families for eighteen years and our global experts are regarded as some of the greatest in the world. Having them create our content means that parents know their children are being exposed to credible content with actionable tools.
‘We take great care in how we support our families,’ she added.
