SOUND INTENSIVE 1

NOV 20 - DEC 3, 2022 | PLAYA MADERAS | NICARAGUA

SOUND HEALING AND VOCAL ACTIVATION

WE ARE QUITE LITERALLY MADE OF MUSIC.

  In this 2 week Intensive, we will be guided into the deep awareness of that principle by using some of the most simple and tactile modalities to produce sound.  

Most notably – ourselves.

SOUND INTENSIVE 1
BODY PERCUSSION AND SOUND HEALING

Incredibly talented Multi Instrumentalist Porangui and shamans and ceremonialist musicians Margeaux and Matute from Nicaragua, will be guiding us through how we can come to know ourselves as the instrument.

From our voice, to our hands, to the way we move, music is one of the most foundational aspects of the human experience. In this training you will be guided in a progressive workshop series to understand better how to use yourself to create beautiful melodies, to use sound bowls and other instruments to set the frequency and vibration of an experience, and how music is at once a full celebration and can also be the most potent of medicines for relaxation and healing.

We don’t know where the world is going, but we know our world is the one reality we choose to be waking up into.

Welcome to Nicaragua Residency – the alternate reality designed for creators and producers of our generation. A space designed to enter peak states of mind.

Just off the beaten path in the Pacific coast of Nicaragua, this artist residency is a conscious container & project incubator for creatives looking for a hero’s dose of inspiration and a boost in creative energy to accomplish their vision and remember their infinity. 

For us, music is the bridge between form and the formless – through space and time – able to project listeners into new dimensions, into new heightened  states of consciousness . Sound allows for us to remember memories from beyond the “self” -and helps us tap into our inner alchemists helping us heal from the inside out. It is through healing ourselves that we can heal the world outside of us and through sound, we are in service.

We come together to harmonize through our bodies and minds and glimpse together in the timeless state of consciousness. Our bodies are the main musical instruments and vessels that commune with the invisible dimensions. By activating our bodies and voices, we dive deeper into the states of consciousness apt for flow states. We enter the liminal space to create new worlds through sound and transcend the trance of limitation. 

We’ve invited some of our community’s top music producers, musicians, sound healers, movement artists to guide us through the iconic Momentom experience – this time for a 2 week intensive. 

We are lucky to have renowned artists facilitate their original workshops to give your personal and professional insider tips in how to alchemize your dreams into your daily expression.
