“I know that the story of the Burning Times lives on in my bones.”
We are honoured and thrilled to be sitting in Circle with a magical force of nature, author and co-founder of BIONEERS (please check out Bioneers if you haven’t already! Join their mailing list!) – Nina Simons (join her mailing list too!!!). We could have chatted with Nina all day, but in our hour we managed to cover Ritual, Relationships, Responsibility and more. Nina said, “My primary allegiance is to the natural world.” And “The Earth needs us all to be leaders now.”
Guiding us to our own call to leadership, Nina reminds, “We all get information differently. Some of us get it in dreams, some of us it comes through intuition, and some of us it comes through our bodies.” Suggesting that listening is key, she asks, “how do we get quiet enough inside and get to know ourselves well enough to know how we receive information?”
Like many of us, Nina was changed and charged after viewing the (Canadian made) witchhunt documentary The Burning Times (watch for free here). “I know that the story of the Burning Times lives on in my bones.”
