What a wild week, just getting back from Shambhala Festival (just named the #1 electronic music festival in North America) where our Momentom team brought acro, meditation and yoga to balance out the forest shenanigans (more on that below).

Shambhala is like Canada's Burning Man...but JUST the party. With 6 main stages - which each could be their own stand alone festival - Shambs is a wild beast of the global DJ scene with over 20,000 people flooding onto a private farm amongst the mountains of beautiful British Colombia....

When I was staying in San Juan, Nicaragua in April with my good friend Danny Elder (AKA Rumpus) and I heard that he was filming his first music video in Saskatoon in early June with Neon Steve, costume direction by Irys (founder of Solar Opposites) and directed by Nathan Thoen (lead singer of Bombargo), I had already booked my early flights home before he asked me to be in it. 

Well, the day is finally here and it is OUT! 
And what a crazy little music video it turned out to be!

Not only that but Rumpus...

“You’re all in. A gut fully trusted.

Your intuition feels the depth and dives in headfirst.

No toe dips / sample sips

travel tips / or prewritten scripts. 

Just Yes.

- from 'Flow of Certainty'

I've been home for one month and still processing the previous 10 month season with Momentom Collective leading our Artist Residencies and creative communities around the world. Still so much to process and reflect on from so many incredible people sharing skills, inspiration and ideas.

I teamed up with Tony Tobias to get a snapshot a...

“As within so without. As above so below.

We live in the same energy.

When you start to realize that, and act on it.

The universe starts shoveling light into you.

And you can’t do anything but give it away.

Then you move from a space holder into a light emanator.”

-Keith Wilson

Why is ceremonial cacao different than standard cacao? 

How can the act of play transcend consciousness?

What is the ultimate gift humanity holds for the earth?

These are some of the questions I ask and discusses with Keith Wilson - also known as '...

How do YOU define true freedom?

What role does vulnerability play with creating art and liberation?

...How does dramatic music effect the believability of a concept? 😋✌️

I was asked to join the Freedom Culture Podcast at the SuperHero Academy Camp in the jungles of Envision Festival in Costa Rica. A beautiful conversation with Julian Guderley ensued that you can watch the dramatic power cut above or the full video podcast below:

In personal news, this last week I've finally made it back home to Canada after 10 months abroad...

"Loathe the coast caress
late light for the shedding

the sun's constant state of setting"

-from 'Blue Violets'

I've just launched my new second music video! My track 'Blue Violets' is a beat poetry piece I wrote and recorded with Earl Pereira of The Steadies a few summers back. It was so fun to put some psychedelic visuals to it with the help of our in-house Momentom Collective videographer Tony Tobias as we walked, danced and ripped a Tuk Tuk through San Marcos on Lake Atitlan, Guatemala!

You...

Creating a community from scratch isn’t exactly a walk up a volcano…or, wait.

We've all seen and admired the new age community from the movie The Beach with Leonardo Dicaprio. The freedom, connection, adventure and struggle of having a tight knit collective living together in paradise - like it's all happened in a serendipitous stroke of fate.

On paper, it's perfect.

In photos, it's surreal

From word of mouth, can this exist?

The concepts always sound too good to be true.

...and no. These communities don't just pop up ma...

How would you react if you faced death in a sunk boat on the bottom of the ocean?

How would it feel if you survived and could breath again with two feet on land?

What if we could feel that gratitude for life without facing and fearing death?

Some thoughts for your Sunday morning - or a cheeky Shanghai layover. Jump into a short but powerful discussion with me during a 12-hour layover in China's biggest city and see how we can open up a difficult subject in order to embrace life more mindfully and with more gratitude...just l...
