This Month's Theme: 

Nina Simons On How to Fight Climate Change by Practicing Gratitude

Join us as we have a heartfelt conversation about climate change, native wisdom and practicing gratitude with co-founder of Bioneers, social entrepreneur and award-winning author Nina Simons.

Today I'm here with the incredible Heart Leader Nina Simons. Nina is a social entrepreneur, co-founder of Bioneers and award-winning author of a wide array books, one of which we're going to talk about today: Nature, Culture and the Sacred: A Woman Listens For Leadership.

What excites me most is that we will have the opportunity not only to discuss all of the above, but also to dive into her soul and hear her speak from her beautiful heart and understand what motivates her as a Heart Leader.

In Loving Service, Amber Mikesell (Host)
