GATHERING OF THE TRIBES

DECEMBER 20, 2021 - JANUARY 2, 2022

BRIDGING THE NORTH + SOUTH

Gather on a volcanic island on a freshwater lake.
Celebrating and manifesting FREEDOM through arts and community.
SET YOURSELF FREE

We are inviting you to the middle of nowhere, where everything is possible. 

The winter months are arriving full throttle and the Momentom crew is setting up for the largest gathering in our history

We gather as a tribe. As tribes unite, our intention is to create a safe haven for all tribes and for a space to discuss the actualization & design of the new world. 

For us, a “tribe”  is a group of people, or a community, regardless of color or creed, with similar values or interests, with a common ancestor, or a common leader, but most importantly, a common vision. 

Our vision is the creation of a New World. No pollution. No discrimination. No racism. No brainwashing. No GMOs. No lies. No masks. 

Instead, we bring in alternative medicine, deep meaningful conversations, radical expression, permaculture, full moon dances from sunrise to sunset, radiant food, volcanic energy, fresh clean water, expanded minds, collective portal opening, meditation, and freedom as a baseline. 

To look beyond the ordinary, and see what radical expression truly looks like. We dig into shadows and connect to the higher. We take 2 weeks to ‘do’ less, and BE more. We let go of our egos and find our essence. We connect deeply. We create goals, and we rise together. Bathe in the tropical fairytale waters and come to understand that magic is real. We step into the timeline of our choice. 

We have invited the most knowledgeable guest teachers, experienced farmers, sacred ceremony holders, and incredible DJs to provide a unique transcendental experience for 2 weeks, starting on the solstice. 

Disconnected from modern civilization, we awaken the sense of belonging with the natural world around us. We learn to prioritize our health, passions, art, and love.

We believe that by uniting visions in these times, we can readily come up with concrete plans to execute to create the new world, starting first and foremost in the crown jewel of Central America, the best kept secret, Ometepe.  

Ometepe is an island formed by two powerful volcanoes rising out of Lake Nicaragua in the Republic of Nicaragua.  It is the largest island in the freshwater lake Nicaragua. The two volcanoes (known as Volcán Concepción and Volcán Maderas) are joined by a low isthmus to form one island in the shape of an infinity sign. Many tribes and healers have known of the incredible healing qualities this island holds, and it is one of the many reasons we are grounding there. 

Come for 1 month, or come exclusively for 2 weeks. All guests will have access to residency workshops, vegan local food, and accommodations on permaculture farms. The circus island location is renowned for performances, sacred clowning, and choreography arts, so you will be surrounded by expressed, free and radical artists and dancers working on their arts.

ENVISION FESTIVAL MEETS MOMENTOM RESIDENCY

PILLARS OF THE EVENT

Mindfulness

RADICAL HEALTH & HEALING OF BODY AND MIND 

The greatest asset is our health and our minds create the world around us. We promote the conversation and the practices that apply both modern and ancient practices, to heal ourselves, our traumas, our addictions, our attachments. When we heal ourselves, we heal all others. 

Workshops & offerings: Ampcoil EMPF technology, breathwork (Wim Hof), men and women’s circles.

RADICAL SELF EXPRESSION

Movement is language. It’s the art of connecting mind, body, and spirit. Communication is thought of in movement and is the basis of all our manifestations. We can always bring more consciousness into each aspect of our lives.

Workshops & offerings: Authentic Relating, Non-Violent Communication, Conscious Communication. Dynamic governance, Holacracy, Sacred Clowning. 

Embodied_movement

ELEMENTAL SYMBIOSIS: Earth, Water, Fire, and Air 

Tap into our human potential through our remembrance of who we are at the elemental level. What if all the water we drink is highly purified and energized. What if we honour the trees and nature, and can start communicating with nature as part of us and not as separate from us. 

Workshops: 5 elements dance, talks from aboriginal elders on connection to the earth, plant medicine. 

 

Permaculture

SUSTAINABILITY & REGENERATION   

We promote regenerative solutions that inspire our people to integrate sustainable and regenerative practices into their own lives and home. There is no “finish” line to sustainability, it is our responsibility to consider the impact of each step we take and to have a north star of being regenerative. To do so, we reconnect to the earth. 

Workshops: Permaculture Design, regenerative farming and living, living off the land, conscious cuisine .

WELCOMING ARTS IN ALL OF ITS FORMS  

We honor the arts. We believe that arts are the catalyst of all evolution and change. We are in a renaissance and it’s time for the radical minds to unite. As artists, we look at the rules so we can break them. We analyze the system, but we feel the potential from the unseen. The truth is that the greatest art is the life we create for ourselves, living is an art form.

We curate an immersive art environment that blends the edge of the world we believe to be “real”.  Through this, we promote radical self-expression in harmony with nature

Workshops: Ecstatic Dances, Circus Arts, Highline, Music, Singing, Clowning, Theater, acroyoga, handstands.

BRIDGING POLARITIES: ANCIENT TRADITIONS MEETING MODERN TECHNOLOGY 

Polarities are continuing to divide at a fast rate, and we want to be at the forefront of both ends so that we can continue to come back to our center as often as possible. We want to understand the new world in terms of evolving technology. At the same time, we understand the importance of returning to our roots, to do so, we come back to plant medicine and to ancestral knowledge. 

Workshops: The future of CryptoCurrency, the emergence of the new world, Virtual Reality, Understanding the metaverse, lucid dreaming, Hermetic Laws & Kybalion.

We are opening up three special events for our extended community, namely:

WINTER SOLSTICE  

Tuesday, December 21, 2021, we wake up early to hike up a volcano with the whole collective. Once arrived, we set up camp and go through sound healing ceremonies and deep prayers. The sunrise will awaken our spirits the next day. Food will be brought to us. Bring water. Good shoes. Start training for the 5-6 hour hike. 

CHRISTMAS
