30 artists. 15 countries. 6 languages. 1 planet.
On March 1, 2020 we kicked off our artist residency in Nicaragua, welcoming travelers from around the world including those from The United States, Guatemala, Honduras, Germany, Spain, Mexico, Canada and more.
For the first two weeks it was business as usual: embodiment workshops, dance, music production, maskwork, yoga, and cuddle puddles.
By March 20 we were watching as borders shut down, businesses closed, confirmed cases of #Coronavirus exploded and the world came to a standstill.
We reevaluated our protocol, made tough decisions to close our container to new residents, and said goodbye to those who honored their need to return home and be with loved ones.
In a community that prides itself on diversity and human interaction, we shifted our weekly schedule of events from touch-oriented activities to discussion.
Through our community circles and increased dialogue, common questions continued to emerge:
- How do we find positivity in the midst of Coronavirus (COVID-19)?
- How do we stay grounded and continue to choose love over fear?
- What lessons are there to be learned from this?
The whole of global consciousness is collectively united against a common cause like never before.
We are shifting inward on a worldwide scale, recognizing what is truly important, releasing what no longer serves humanity, and coming back to our roots.
We are realizing now more than ever how interconnected we are as humans.
Our false precepts of security and control prevalent within the old system are crumbling.
The children of the New Earth are being called to rise up. This is our call to elevate and ascend.
It has been said, those who act with bravery and courage will overcome diseases, while those who act out of fear will fall ill.
One thing is clear: when we emerge on the other side, the world in which we live will be glaringly different.
How will you navigate these changes? Leave us a comment and let us know how you are doing.
