As we are in full swing of our 7th season, having just finished our Sound Residency with Porangui in Nicaragua, and the Green Residency with Stephen Brooks in Costa Rica, we are so appreciative of the years of energy and input necessary to create these dream worlds.   We are so grateful for your trust and your time, and the amount of stories and memories and evolution that has come to the surface of these experiences is too difficult  to put into words.

But we’re going to try.

It’s hard to explain the unique elements of residency and why people should attend but below are the top 10 reflections we can share when someone asks,  ‘What is Momentom- and why are you going?’ 

And if you are playing with the idea of community living and creative modality, this is a great road map to find yourself in an exotic location, surrounded by a bunch of like minded people, who are invested in creating a new  type of living that fills your heart first- head second.

When you attend a residency, you’re not just attending one event. You’re joining our global community of brilliant creatives who meet regularly around the world and support each other in their journey to making a huge impact and create real change.

 

6. You’ll live It up in nature.

We make it a point to design residencies that make residents ask “am I dreaming?”
Personal development calls for inspiring locations & we keep our residents inspired by taking the training out of the studios and into fresh air, the computer work out of the air-conditioning and onto the oceanfront. Our facilities are in gorgeous picturesque locations; next to bodies of water, in the jungles, and at the base of volcanoes. Momentum has selected locations that will blow your mind every time you reflect on your surroundings.

 

7. You’ll engage in transformative fun.

With DJs, musicians, clowns, shamans and dancers part of our tribe, we take our play seriously. We promote circus culture, and we embody radical expression, in all forms, in all ways, always. Dress up, dance, and sing. You can join in on Johnny’s legendary Tutu Tuesdays or pop into an ecstatic dance, and celebrate like everyday is a festival.

 

8. You’ll learn new art forms and improve your current ones.

Join a community of some of the most talented artists on the globe for a month – and combine it with non-stop workshops and skill sharing – and you’re bound to learn something new. Train as you learn and solidify your new skills. Your network of peers will guide you through the new, and you’ll find yourself supporting, sharing knowledge, and teaching too.

 

9. You’ll create a healthy habit toolbox.

After a month of meditating every day, of practicing nonviolent communication, of eating delicious vegan food, you might not notice improvement, but the healthy habits you’ve been practicing will be ingrained in you for you to take with you on your journey. As new tools in your toolbox, you can turn these personal practices when you need to drop in with yourself.

10.  You will build a deeper connection with your art practice.

When else do you have the opportunity to practice silks, work on acroyoga with a partner, record music, do a  business skills deep dive, or spin fire every day?  In Momentom residencies, creatives are given the opportunity to find deeper meaning in why they do their art, to ask why they create, and explore how to take their expression to the next level. 

To everyone that has ever made the decision to come on an adventure with us, from the bottom of our heart, we thank you.

Thank you for being our teachers, and our inspiration, and to continue to remind us that we are the creators of the world we wish to live in.

 

Big love- MC
