Our classes are mindfulness based, supporting you to attune to baby and strengthen your stress reduction skills at the same time.

The FNC is the seed of Heart Place and where our non-profit grew from.
Our Vision: We believe in a world where ‘caring communities’ share the values of cooperation, respect for difference, equality of opportunity & access to essential resources. A world that prioritizes nurturing & the facilitation of relationships based on empathy, kindness & non-violence. A world that seeks above all else to protect the health of its children and its children’s planetary home.
We recognize that all humans are interconnected & that each of us in our own way helps to create this world. Healthy attachments are essential to the optimal health of humans of all ages. Simple moments where we take a breath & attune to the present have great value in creating this world. In these simple moments we build trust, communication & compassion for each other, we build relationship, family and community.
We invite you to come share simple moments with us.
The FNC's mission is to support families through the provision of resources, services and education to lay the foundations of mental health & well being in the family. Through revitalizing caring communities & connecting families that align themselves with the spirit of nurturing, empathy & cooperation, children flourish & the whole society benefits.
