Circus Island 2021...it's Happening!
It’s been a WILD journey to pull this one off, and just WOW.
We couldn’t have imagined a bigger explosion of love, creative expression and utter MAGIC for our first week opening of our Momentom Collective Artist Residency, Circus Island 2021 at El Pital Chocolate Paradise on Isla Ometepe, Nicaragua!⠀ ⠀
From morning meditations, breath work, cacao ceremonies and sacred clowning to human chocolate mandalas, jungle medicine food tours, Maori haka and bohemian rhapsody fire juggling in drag… we are honoured to share our little jungle Community in Quarantine with this incredible tribe (complete with negative covid tests on entry)
I am SO proud of our Momentom fam that helped Therese Lowton and I create this magical jungle potion of human potential. The world needs to tap back into the healing modalities of nature, embodied movement, quality nutrition, self-expression and community now more than ever! Our mandate is to use art as a catalyst for change. To merge self expression with introspection to recreate our collective realities. We believe it's working ;)
We have limited spaces left for our second month at Circus Island in Chocolate Paradise Feb 9 - March 11 drop me a DM or visit here for more info: www.momentomcollective.com/residencies/circus-island (See below for our Week 1 Schedule) *As well we have our other partner Gabrielle Bonneville opening up our Green Residency to focus on permaculture and rewiring our view on sustainable communities in Punta Mona, Costa Rica! We've just launched a SECOND Residency in April, check it HERE.
And yes, the holidays are long passed, but I thought still no better time to share our naked fruit Christmas miracle of finding a JACKFRUIT under our Xmas beach tree this year at Casa Horizon. Jackfruit: Aka the world’s biggest fruit (up to 100lbs!), the vegan substitute for pulled pork (unripen) and the origin of the juicy fruit gum flavour (when ripe)...que rica yaca! We're just tapping into the magical abundance of the jungle's food and medicine. More to come! Follow the journey on my Insta and stories HERE
