ABOUT MOMENTOM

Kristina Block Mask Work Momentom Collective Artist Residency 2020

WHO IS MOMENTOM?

Momentom Collective is an international community of artists, yogis and thought-leaders with a common vision:

 to explore the potential of the human spirit.   

 

From virtual events to curated live-in residencies, we bring together creatives from all fields to engage in community living and training programs that awaken mind, body and spirit. Our main vector is art, and we equip it in all of its forms as a catalyst for global change and collective awakening. 

For the past 4 years, we have been taking it upon ourselves to shape the ultimate artistic spaces that inform the collective mind. Residencies are spaces that engineer ways of being, ways of thinking, ways of seeing and ways of connecting. Our residencies are the ultimate canvas for us to explore who we are as individuals in connection to each other and the earth.

 

WHAT DOES MOMENTOM DO?

Momentom experiences are a hybrid between a summit, a retreat and a festival where residents collaborate on training, innovation and art. 

Think festival meets ashram, we design each of our spaces to invoke dream-like experiences specifically tailored to bring an entire community into a baseline state of inspiration.

 

THE MOMENTOM MISSION

Our mission is to provide transformational experiences that awaken the potential in the human spirit.

THE MOMENTOM VISION

A platform to bridge the collective consciousness into a new paradigm that recognizes arts as a catalyst for social change.

MOMENTOM VALUES

WE CREATE MOMENTUM
Momentom : the motion of movement (changing tides in the global paradigm) measured as a product of people stepping into their optimal selves through spirituality and authentic self-expression. 

WE BELIEVE IN CONSCIOUSNESS AS A FOUNDATION
Momentom Collective believes in the power of awakening, individually and collectively. We meditate. We manifest. We say gratitude. We collapse individual awareness to shape collective consciousness.

WE FOSTER COMMUNITY
We believe vibe attracts tribe and that community is the new Buddha. Our community values cooperation, authenticity, respect and cuddle puddles. For this reason, we strive to produce spaces where we meet our best friends and best reflections, along with spaces to be alone and go into deep introspection.

WE EMBRACE A VEGETARIAN DIET
We understand the impact the meat industry makes on the world and our bodies. We think about things in global context and are driven to create a training platform where veganism and vegetarianism is part of the norm. Our residencies and retreats are meat-free and we embrace everyone, wherever they are on their path and transition to a vegetarian diet.

WE EMBODY THE HEYOKA CLOWN
We believe clowns play an important role in shaping society codes. At Momentom, we are unbound by societal constraints and allow ourselves to critique established norms. We expose society’s vices. We strive to function both as a reflection and a teacher, to mirror others, and force ourselves to examine our own doubts, fears, hatreds, and weaknesses for self-transcendence.

WE SEE TRAVEL AS TRANSFORMATION
We believe travel is not simply a vacation away from ‘normal life’ and responsibility. We see travel as an important tool for expansion. Travel is a way to live and experience different realities, ideas and cultures directly. We must never take the gift of travel for granted. We travel, because light travels.

WE PRACTICE RADICAL SELF-RELIANCE
Inspired by Burning Man, we embrace the Playa Culture – merging dreams and waking states to dissolve the illusion of duality and bring forth a new reality that anything is possible. Part of this culture is Radical Self Reliance: your personal growth and expansion will not be handed to you. More poetically put by the community of Black Rock City: ‘to encourage individuals to discover, exercise and rely on his or her inner resources to contribute to the experiences of others as well as their own.’

 

WE TAKE HOLISTIC SUSTAINABILITY SERIOUSLY
Its not just about creating little bubbles of alternate realities where dream states and waking states dissolve. We care a lot about holistic sustainability. We understand that Momentom impacts each of these realms so we strive to improve the environment, economy and social conditions of the spaces we occupy.

WE ENCOURAGE SELF-EXPRESSION
If yoga is the eradication of the self, circus is the expression of all your selves. Radical self-expression arises from the unique authenticity each individual can contribute to their being and their community. We celebrate this and encourage this.

WE PARTICIPATE
We achieve being through doing. Our community is committed to a participatory ethic. We believe that transformative change, whether in the individual or in the collective consciousness, can occur only through the medium of deeply personal participation. Everyone is invited to contribute, to teach and to play on our skill-sharing platform.

WE PRACTICE AUTHENTIC RELATING
We dive deep Into our relationships and develop ninja relating communication skills and conflict resolution skills.

WE ADVOCATE RADICAL INCLUSION
We honour our inherent diversity, belonging, and contribution to the greater whole and value the fullness of every human being—mind, body, heart, and spirit. Anyone who aligns with our values can apply to participate on our platforms. We require an application process to ensure common intentionality and to achieve the perfect mix of spiritual healers artists and business entrepreneurs.

​WE ARE ALL TEACHERS AND STUDENTS
​We believe that everyone has something to teach. A collective learns and benefits the most when there’s a balance of knowledge shared. At Momentom, you are invited to be both a student and a teacher.
