BALANCE HIGHLINE HERBALISM

ANDREW 7 SEALY  |  SARAH WU  |  SACHA MCQUADE 

Inspired by the theme of Balance, Momentom opens 7th edition of green residency, this time merging herbalism and balance arts with Sarah Wu, Sacha McQuade and Andrew 7 Sealy in the lush jungle of Costa Rica. 

All residencies are 50% art and 50% self-expansion. This particular residency merges Balance Arts with Herbalism.

WHAT TO EXPECT

The residency is an incubator for those looking to learn deeper about herbalism and learn how to apply it in their personal lives, and/or community  projects; We learn to communicate with the plant kingdom and see how we are part of one giant ecosystem. 

The circus component of this residency is themed on balance, and we’ve invited highliner Sacha McQuade to teach us slackline over a waterfall and Andrew Sealy for inversions and yoga.

Once we calibrate our attention and our mental, spiritual and physical balance, we dive into herbalism with clinical herbalist, Envision Co-founder and educational curator of Punta Mona – Sara Wu.

Momentom’s Green residency is renowned for the unique and highly professional curriculum that merges underground arts with practical workshops in developing a life out of the matrix and connecting with the earth. 

CERTIFIED ARTIST RESIDENCY

In this 2 weeks together, we explore how to be the neutral observer, in the eye of the storm.

All Green Residencies are certified by Momentom Collective. 8 hours of class and trainers a day.

We invite the top of the line teachers and trainers in their field to provide the unconventional insight to guide residents on how to shift into the new earth with grace and ease. This residency provide tools to integrate knowledge of herbalism create your own project from your most centred place. 

The residency has started taking applications from people from all walks of life, including architects, dancers, designers, who all share a similar interest to launch off-the-grid projects dedicated to exploring the world and cultivating a life outside of the Matrix. 

If you are interested in joining this collective creative process and meet other people with similar visions of an ideal future, apply today. 

 

WHAT IS HERBALISM?

Herbalism is the study of plants and botanicals which offers medicinal, cosmetic, tea and distilling use, amongst others. Botanists typically collect and identify different species of plant in order to make potions and remedies, and their compilations are known as ‘herbals’.

In residency, we acquaint ourselves with the spirits and uses of plants and learn all of their incredible uses, including as food, medicine or perfume. 

WHAT ARE BALANCE ARTS?

Any activity that helps a person explore states of equilibrium or equipoise; equal distribution of weight, amount, etc. Including the mind, mental steadiness or emotional stability; habit of calm behavior, judgment, etc. a state of bodily equilibrium. How we do this? Inversions and highline.

FAQS

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. 

If enough children are present, we can prepare for specific classes for children at extra cost. Children can join dance classes. If parents would like to hire local help for babysitters, our team can help you set this up. 

Momentom certifies all their intensives with the hours completed by residents. This is backed by the academia from which the permaculture teacher is from, which is different in each residency. We have worked with Punta Mona, Tierra Selva and many more. All residents must attend all classes to obtain their certification.

The community is made up of a variety of humans from all walks of life. Diversity is kept. You will find healers, artists, performers, singers, acrobats, clowns, along with farmers, herbalists, tightrope walkers. The main denominator is that all people in our residencies are passionate about self-actualization and spiritual development.

Momentom residencies culminate with a plant ceremony at an extra cost for those who want to deep dive into the interdimensional realm. If you are interested, we will open the opportunity to residents in house. In green residencies, you can expect cacao ceremony, mushroom ceremony and Inipi with an indigenous wisdom keeper named Alejandro, and his family. 

After your application has been accepted, within the following week, you will need to pay a 50 percent deposit to book your place. Then we ask that you pay the remaining amount no more than 30 days before your residency. If you cancel before this time we honor 50% of your deposit as credit for a future residency. If you do not cancel before this time, you will forfeit your deposit and we will have to give the space to someone else.

We believe in the medicine of community so much that we want our experiences to be as accessible as possible. We can evaluate this on a case by case basis and we are open to working with you if you need support and we can come to a suitable agreement. After you apply, you can notify our sales team as to your specific inquiries around payment structure.

WILD SOUNDS OF MACAW
BY TAMARA MONTENEGRO (NAOBA)

Sounds hold the vibrational codes of their environments and the beings that reside in them. We started green residencies to learn how to LISTEN to nature. We want to HEAR what pachamama has to say, the song she is singing, the wisdom she is sharing.
