Momentom Collective Presents

THE GREEN RESIDENCY

Season 4: May 1 – May 29, 2022
Permaculture Meets Artist Residency in the jungle.
Acquire essential life skills to live independently from the
Matrix and to step into your full potential.

WHAT IS THE GREEN RESIDENCY?

One of the world’s most unique off-grid community experiences in embodied movement, community living, and permaculture. 

Living on a botanical garden, an agro-forestry farm and a bio-corridor, we immerse ourselves in nature. Potentially one of Momentom’s home bases, we design our human experiences around nature. 

The residency is designed to provide an experience where residents can get a taste living off grid, while still training mind and body in nature.. 

The residency is 4 weeks long and is certified by the permaculture institute. Residents will be invited to taste the various facets of what it takes to run and operate a community and a farm, make natural medicine, live off the land and embody the very nature of permaculture and the rhythm of the rainforest.

Momentom sets the stage as we always do. Our Workshops and lifestyle help cultivate our arts and guide us in cementing daily rituals, practices that lead us toward optimal mind, body, and expression. Fields of studies in Movement include Performing Arts, Aerial Silks, Flow Arts, Dance, Highline, partner acrobatics.

In between training, the residency is designed to take residents into waves of peaks and shadow work, including (but not limited to) ceremonies in breathwork, temazcal, kombo and cacao to help bring awareness to the unconscious mind. This shadow work is then countered with ecstatic dances, mud baths and meditations. We navigate all spectrums of experiences to find our center and apply when in the default world and build the new one.
 

Residents will have the chance to experience the buffet of both the movement arts and the permaculture subjects. 

The Permaculture Workshops  & Intensives will vary based on what kind of stewardship the land is needing, ongoing projects, and what is in season. Expect experiences in farm to table cuisine, fermentation, regenerative farming, nutrition, herbalism, gardening, eco-building, homesteading and wild crafting

The entire experience is customized to be based on play, permaculture, knowledge sharing, specialization and sustainable living. As we learn and grow together as a community, we will learn how to HUMAN well – with  authentic relating, non-violent communication and conscious relationships workshops. Through these intentional community spaces, we will support each other in our journey of knowledge integration, project actualization, and finding oneself through community living and in relationship to the sacred other, including nature.

WHO
Movement Artists , Permaculture Enthusiasts, and anyone wanting to learn how to live autonomously off-grid, and help build a permanent community designed by artists for artists.

WHAT
We are in a time of radical systems change. 

The global pandemic has shed light on decades of over-industrialization, alienation from nature, and one another as some of the primary root causes of global inequality, illness, poverty and environmental degradation. The arts have been shut down, in a time where we need arts to pivot a renaissance in collective thinking. 

In response to our world’s current state, Momentom Collective has decided to ground down.  We are building a community for the future of our families. To do so, we provide a world class and very unique hands-on educational Incubator for ART, COMMUNITY, and REGENERATION that empowers global creators to ignite a regenerative future of inspiration, conversation, and action – We are leading the transition into the new paradigm. 

RESIDENCY PROGRAM WILL INCLUDE

  • Mind and body practices (meditation, yoga, breathwork, dance, aerial silks, highline, dance, (and more)

  • Hands-on Green workshops in community design, eco-architecture, sacred geometry and permaculture for residents to gain experience what it takes to live this lifestyle and to acquire essential life skills to design their lives and visions out of the matrix.

  • Lots of free time for round table discussion to exchange ideas and work on personal and collective projects.

  • Healthy vegan meals made with fresh ingredients from the farm, opportunity to detox (juicing, fasting, silence and more)

MACAW LODGE

 

COSTA RICA 

MACAW LODGE

Opening in 2011, Macaw Lodge is a working, growing and evolving center for eco-tourism, research and conservation. Today, the Lodge is the culmination of a long-held vision of the Gordienko family. Designed to reverse damage done by overplanting of monotonous agricultural crops. In the 1980s, they became stewards of Santuario de Macao Limitada—the farm that is now home to Macaw Lodge and The Macaw Lodge Private Forest Reserve. Over the past two decades, they have created a model of sustainability, restored the health of the forests and fostered a return of many animal, plant, insect and bird species, including the Scarlet Macaw.

WE CERTIFY OUR RESIDENCY

  • 65+ hours of study with Punta Mona in Permaculture Design, Gardening, Harvest, Composting, Herbalism and Eco-Building to provide you with life skills to contribute or create sustainability in your project and community.

  • 20+ hours in Community Living & Design illustrating first hand experience in Community living, Authentic Relating, Conscious relationships, Non-Violent Communication and other people relational tools meant to aid in building a deeper connection to yourself and others.

CAN CHILDREN COME TO THE GREEN RESIDENCY?

Absolutely. For us, children and elders are the true teachers in residency. We believe the children are the future and with their little minds expanding so quickly, residencies may be one of the best spaces for a full scope of expansion that help them perceive the magic of a sustainable world, of community living and of what it feels like to be free to be themselves. The elders are the wisdom keepers and we want to learn from them. All ages are welcome. 

Any children coming in under the age of 8 are free of charge. Children over the age of 8 will be charged $35 a day which amounts to $980 a month, including all food, accommodations, workshops. If parents would like to hire local help for babysitters, our team can help you set this up.

PAYMENT PLANS

Yes. We can help create a specific payment plan for you. Get in touch with our team to tailor this for your specific case.
