Optimism Is The Best Medicine
What would our world look like if we focused on the positive stories about how the environment and business are connected – instead of just the negative stories?
We are constantly bombarded with heartbreaking examples of how human error is affecting the environment: utility companies starting fires, corporate greed damaging the earth and politicians disregarding indigenous rights. These stories appear in the media each day.
However, there are so many smart, motivated people in conscious companies who are in action and striving to create a better world for all of us. Nikki will give us a dose of optimism by sharing what some of our favorite companies (Dr. Bronner’s, Nutiva, Mountain Rose Herbs and more) are doing to create a convergence between business and the environment. She will also offer tips that everyone can use in their daily life to connect with optimism without “spiritually bypassing” the reality going on in the world around them.

Seven years ago, I was diagnosed with Graves Disease which is auto immune hyperthyroidism. Typically Doctors remove the thyroid for this dis-ease. I have kept my thyroid intact despite western doctors warning me I would have to let them destroy/remove my thyroid. I had to relearn to trust my inner knowledge and intuition while changing my entire worldview, an awakening my life had to go through in order to survive and thrive! I realize humanity also is going through a similar collective awakening. Entonces, I have been helping to heal many around me, one at a time, poco a poco, beginning with myself, my relationships, my community. Now through speaking at Envision I seek to expand my message and expand it out into our collective consciousness in an ever greater fractaling spiral. I am a native Long Island, New Yorker. In the Summers I work as a Ocean Lifeguard, in the Winter either as a traveling nomad and/or snowboard instructor. I am an independent consultant for a whole food juicing supplement company called Juice Plus and a distributer for their aeroponic Tower Garden which empowers people to produce their own food even in the dead of winter in the city. I also practice herbalism, food as medicine, surfing, yoga, writing, sound healing and music. I have worked extensively in the past as a sound engineer.

Living is an art form. At Envision we curate a 360 degree immersive art environment that blends the edges of the canvas with the world around it.
Come as you are, leave as you want to be. We know our paths emerge from different directions, and we respect the stories and experiences that make us who we are now. No matter where we come from, or how our paths intertwine, we’re all about progressive inclusion.
To care for others we must first take care of ourselves. Experience and explore mindful practices for food, activity, medicine, and more that will nourish a lifetime of joyous behaviors and self-care rituals.
You are apart of something bigger. Discover the community you always knew existed - brought together by all of our similarities, and transformed by all of our differences.
We think long term. The 12 principles of permaculture are echoed throughout every undertaking at Envision. Before each decision is made, and before each shovel is dug into the Earth, we are dedicated to considering the future impact of our actions.
Strengthen your source connection. Envision supports you with a space where you can explore a deeper understanding of our common oneness with nature and each other.
