• Solstice will be hosting Nicola Feldman, a life coach and mindfulness instructor, for the three session workshop, Mindfulness-Based Wellness Parent Programme, starting on Wednesday, May 18. Nicola specialises in mindfulness-based personal and professional development coaching and training programmes that support clients in creating transformative self-awareness, sustaining positive behaviour change, and embedding more motivating mindsets. Her passion is helping individuals to become more authentic, energised and balanced so that they live their lives with less stress and worry and greater peace of mind. This is a three-session, small-group workshop that gives parents the tools to bring the benefits of mindfulness to their parenting and their children.

The workshop will run on May 18 and 25 and June 1 from 9.30am until 11.30am. The cost is $175. For more information, or to register, contact 292-3456 or info@solstice.bm
