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 2 weeks of 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 & sustainability and Momentom in Movement arts & community living.
The residency is 4 weeks long and is certified. Residents will be invited to taste the various facets of what it takes to run and operate a farm, make natural medicine, live off the land, live by the beach, embody the very nature of permaculture and the rhythm of the jungle.
Momentom sets the stage as we always do. Our Workshops & Intensives help cultivate our arts and guide us in our cementing daily rituals, practices, and focuses that lead us toward optimal mind, body, and expression. Fields of studies in Movement include Performing Arts, Aerial Silks, Flow Arts, Partner Dance, Slackline, Acroyoga or Kung Fu.
In between training, the residency is designed to take residents into waves of peaks and shadow work, including ceremonies in holotropic 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 heart meditations. We adapt to our neutrality.
After residents 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 areas of your choosing within the sustainable living and movement arts offerings.
The Permaculture Workshops & Intensives 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 5 day deep dives and 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 to deepen and master 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 learn how to HUMAN well – with authentic relating, non-violent communication and conscious relationships (cozy) 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.
ONE WEEK INTENSIVES
Only able to come for one week? Thats all good. We do encourage a full residency to get the full benefits of the experience and harvest the habits that will shape the rest of your life. However, we understand that some conditions may impede that so we have opened up 1 week slots where residents can pick 1 green (herbalism, regenerative farming, permaculture, conscious cuisine) and 1 movement arts (aerial silks, slackline/ highline dance and spirituality). These will be progressive series for 5 days.

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 has 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 and Punta Mona teams up to provide an radication Educational Incubator for ART, COMMUNITY, and SUSTAINABILITY that empowers global creators in igniting a regenerative future of inspiration, conversation, and action – leading the transition into the new paradigm.
Launched in 1997 by the world renowned green entrepreneur Stephen Brooks, Punta Mona is a year round community. It is home to over 300 different varieties of tropical fruit and nut trees, root crops, medicinal and flowering plants, herbs and vegetables. Punta Mona is a living classroom with a mission to practice and teach a simpler, more regenerative way of living. Momentom Collective is a micro community entering and working in conjunction with the larger macrocosm that is Punta Mona.
Punta Mona will be providing world class permaculture courses, and regular opportunities to connect with, work, and learn from the land.
Due to unexpected legal issues occurring in Punta Mona, the Green residency, in partnership with the amazing Punta Mona team, has been moved to Macaw Ecovillage & Permaculture Far, 90 minutes from the capitol, San Jose in the Central Pacific region. This is temporary measures until the beautiful Punta Mona opens up once again in the months or years to come.
Macaw Lodge is Central America’s oldest permaculture centre. It is stunning. Dating back to the 80’s, the farm and retreat space at Macaw Lodge has been a refuge for some of the most exotic trees, amazing cacao, gardens and open minds to merge with the magic of the jungles of the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica.
The Lodge is a tropical botanical garden where there are more than 500 species from around the world including ornamental, medical and agricultural plants.
The 264-acre property features eight acres of cultivated paths where you can wander through the giant black bamboo forest, hike to the waterfall and take a refreshing dip in a gorgeous waterfall, train in circuin the gazebo overlooking the pond or find solace in the palm forest to meditate.
We will train in two open-air yoga studios, while the team helps us explore the fruit and cocoa orchard or guide us inn sustainable farming operation and learn more about hydroponics, aquaponics, vermiculture and composting.
All rooms feature beds with therapeutic mattresses and bedspreads woven by the Maya of the Guatemalan Atitlan area, a ceiling fan and a private bathroom built from marble extracted and processed locally, solar-heated water, and towels and bed sheets made from bamboo fiber. The screened windows can be opened to welcome the refreshing breeze.
Same team, same vibe, higher class accomodations, waterfalls, functional farm, highline parks, open aired yoga studio, ecstatic dance shala, treehouses. This eco-resort is divine and much higher class than Punta Mona. We will still be eating lucious meals from the abundance of the land cooked by the Punta Mona team that we have hired to come with us, and we will be swimming in nearby waterfalls and diving into movement, highlining, circus arts and creative ideas to change the world.
