What does Nature, Culture and the Sacred teach us about becoming the leader we need to be: for ourselves, our communities, and the Earth? Plenty, actually!
As the world we inhabit crumbles around us, its takes courage, humility, deep listening skills and activism to create a safer world that is respectful of women, people of marginalised identities, and greater values than chasing money and power to create resistance and change. And what can we singularly do about it?
My guest on the new episode of Wild Flow podcast is Nina Simons, Co-founder and Chief Relationship Officer at Bioneers, a nonprofit that features and connects practical and visionary solutions for transforming how we relate to ourselves, each other and the Earth. Nina is recipient of the Goi Peace Award, and throughout her career, she has worked with over a thousand women leaders who are diverse across disciplines, race, class, age and orientation to create conditions for mutual learning, trust and leadership development. She produces and speaks at large-scale events to work intimately to help small, diverse groups of women leaders knit together to strengthen each other’s work pursuing intersectional healing and ecological justice.
tune in to hear:
Nina’s connection to her cyclical nature and the sacred in her post-menopause,
Her journey from theatre studies to change-maker and activist,
To how we can decolonise and decondition our beliefs around what leadership is, so that more women and underrepresented peoples can step into their leadership roles,
How we can re-establish Eldership, especially by encouraging post-menopausal women to share the harvest of their life lessons,
And how we can mentor young people to bring in their fresh ideas and energy to help change the world.
With much more besides…
If you are leading the way in your community, in your work, or your family, this is for you. And if you resist embodying your full leadership potential, this too is a powerful transmission to receive.
