Punta Mona and Momentom Collective come together to create one of the world’s most unique and nourishing experiences in embodied movement, community living, and permaculture design.
The residency is designed to provide a buffet-style experience where residents can get a taste of all of what Momentom and Punta Mona have to offer, as both are experts in their respective fields: Punta Mona in Permaculture and Momentom in Movement arts.
The residency is 4 weeks long. Residents will be invited to taste the various facets of what it takes to run and operate a farm, make medicine, and live off the land, permaculture style. Similarly, in movement arts, we will set the stage, offering a foundation in a variety of movement practices. After you have the chance to experience the buffet of both the movement arts and the permaculture subjects, you’ll be given the option to specialize in the area of your choosing within the sustainable living and movement arts offerings.
Momentoms Workshops and Specializations will include workshops meant to cultivate our artistic practices and to guide us in our cultivation of the daily rituals, practices, and focuses that lead us toward the optimal mind, body, and expression. Fields of studies in Movement include Performing Arts, Aerial Silks, Flow Arts, Partner Dance, Slackline, or Kung Fu.
The permaculture Workshops & Specializations by Punta Mona 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 1 week specializations are deep dives for residents to go into weekly long progressive series in ONE theme in GREEN and ONE theme in MOVEMENT (see below) Residents will train specifically in these modalities and themes for one week straight in master workshops to deepen their knowledge and their skills.
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 participate in weekly authentic relating, non-violent communication and conscious relationship 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. We will invite new patterns of connection and realization of service to the whole.
