Self-Care with Nina Simons

Self-care is the practice of taking action to preserve or improve one’s own health.

“Not a year of my life has missed a baptism by ocean, not one. Why this relationship between mother and water, breaking waters. We are born from what is fluid, not fixed. Water is essential, a mother is essential. The ocean as mother is mesmerizing in her power, a creative force that can both comfort and destroy.” Terry Tempest Williams

Throughout her career spanning the nonprofit, social entrepreneurship, corporate, and philanthropic sectors, Nina has worked with nearly a thousand diverse women leaders across disciplines, race, class, age and orientation to create conditions for mutual learning, trust and leadership development.
