Living with Purpose and Meaning in THIS Moment
Nina will explore her winding journey of getting ‘woke’ through 30 years of studying with and hosting diverse movement leaders, while writing and teaching to ignite emergent forms of leadership. Together, we’ll remember the connective tissue that’s at the heart of all the issues we face, and revisit each of our felt sense of singular purpose, that’s our unique compass for navigating this tumultuous, challenging and transformative time.
Nina Simons, co-founder and Chief Relationship Strategist at Bioneers, is a social entrepreneur passionate about reinventing leadership, restoring the feminine, and co-creating a healthy, peaceful and equitable world for all. Nina is co-editor of Moonrise: The Power of Women Leading from the Heart, and is a contributor to Ecological and Social Healing: Multicultural Women’s Voices. Her latest book, Nature, Culture & the Sacred: A Woman Listens for Leadership has just been released, and is available at bookstores everywhere.
Bioneers is a nonprofit forum, founded in 1990, featuring visionary and practical solutions for healing our relationships within ourselves, with each other and with the natural world, which she helps to program and host each year. It illuminates the systemic interconnectedness of the challenges we face, and also reveals an achievable, inclusive vision of the regenerative and just world we're working toward.
Nina speaks, consults and teaches internationally at schools, conferences and festivals, and also co-facilitates transformative leadership intensives and retreats that share practices for regenerative leadership through relational mindfulness. Her worldview and perspectives have been largely informed by Earth wisdom, learned from scores of diverse mentors, from nature herself and from Indigenous teachers. She received a Robert Rodale award in 2003 and was a recipient in 2017 of the Goi Peace Award, in Tokyo.
