WHO WE ARE

A CONSCIOUS CIRCUS COLLECTIVE

Momentom is a community for those who embrace the circus and yogic lifestyle and value meaningful human connection through travel.

In the face of shifting global paradigms, Momentom redefines traveling by designing spaces specifically catered to nomadic tribes, elite minds and artistic trailblazers to share skills and insight on movement art and business. Resident artists and entrepreneurs collaborate on innovation, sustainability, and art. It is tailored to those who live unconventionally and for those who prioritize training of the mind and body.

The artist residency is a co-working, co-training, co-living and co-operating space. With a daily schedule of meditation, yoga, movement, aerials, business workshop and dharma talks, it’s a mini-festival ground where culture is based on radical authenticity and collective consciousness.

 

 

WHAT WE DO

Momentom Projects include Artist Residencies, multi-disciplinary workshops, coaching, portfolio development packages, performances in festival & events, specialized retreats and Yoga Teacher Trainings (YTT). Our social mission brings yoga and circus to humanitarian missions with key partners, including refugee camps and community centers.

Our unique skill sharing environment makes human potential thrive. One of the movement’s signature projects, artist residencies, offer a-la-carte daily workshops in which residents can teach and attend free of charge. The mission is to merge art with entrepreneurship,

Along with daily cross-disciplinary training, daily entrepreneur workshops provide a space for purposeful dialogues for all things related to business, marketing, and branding for artists to become fully sustainable.

 

 

OUR MISSION

Our mission is to redefine travel.

On an individual scale, 

our mission is to inspire people to become the fullest expression of themselves. On a global scale, we aspire to become leaders in conscious tourism and as providers of co-training facilities around the globe.

With rising interests and collaboration, we plan to continue expanding the international network of co-training spaces for travelers to thrive while simultaneously creating jobs for our people.

 

BUSINESS STRUCTURE

We call ourselves a collective because we believe in the power of collectivity.

Momentom is based on precepts of holacracy, with decentralized management and democratic organizational governance. Momentom believes in expanding its wings to involve many unconventional thinkers to provide a wide array of perspective. Momentom opens opportunities for energetic and financial investment once a year for those wishing to establish themselves and co-create the movement’s future vision.

Momentom believes in dynamic governance. We achieve goals, solutions and tackle challenges with one goal: to create harmonious social environments and productive collective organization.

THE COLLECTIVE STORY

ONCE UPON A TIME, IN THE JUNGLE OF A FAR OFF LAND...

Our story starts in the jungle of Nicaragua with starry-eyed world wanderers talking about life, love, existence and everything in between.

These ladies thrived to become authors of a life story worth being told. They spoke of a sandy existence in harmony with the sun, the moon, the ocean, the stars. They talked about devising a platform that could inspire others to live a non-conventional lifestyle- dropping the 9 to 5 for a life of self-expression, artistic creation, mindfulness and community living through circus arts and yoga. This platform they coined- ‘the Momentom Collective’

Today, these dreams are in full throttle. Momentom Collective is international, with a solid team and amazing projects. International Artist Residencies, Retreats and YTTs are just some of the for profit activities.

As a structure, Momentom is a cooperative enterprise that promotes collectivity by encouraging independent projects.

Momentom Collective’s heart is based on its social initiatives. As we grow, we aim to gain public support and international grants to bring our teachers in refugee camps, prisons and on the humanitarian field. Click here to learn about our social program.

To grow the platform, Momentom accepts applications of innovative, artistic and entrepreneurial projects that go hand in hand with the mission to make circus and yoga a lifestyle. Once accepted, we provide technical and design assistance, along with social media exposure to develop these projects into successful independent businesses hand inland with Momentom Collective.

OUR VALUES

THE PRINCIPLES THAT HELP US THRIVE

ACTION

Be the change you want to see in the world- Ghandi.
We put action to our words and intentions.


AUTHENTICITY

“Today you are you. That is truer than true. There is no one alive who is you-er than you.” – Dr Seuss.
We aspire to act with the best intentions without exception.


CREATIVITY

“Art is a kind of innate drive that seizes a human being and makes him its instrument”.
We believe in the power of movement, of art and original thinking. We support critical and out of-the-box thinking.


COMPASSION

Our actions are based on the notion to do onto others what we’d like to have done to us.


COOPERATION + PARTICIPATION

Our collective is committed to a participatory ethic. We believe that transformative change can occur only through the medium of personal participation to attain collective impact.


COMMUNITY BUILDING THROUGH CIRCUS

We believe the circus and yoga have powerful abilities to bring people together, whether through play or shared space for meditation. We believe the circus itself is multi-faceted: a form of art, a social instrument, a vehicle for self-empowerment.

EXPERIENCE

“Today is the tomorrow that you worried about yesterday”- Dale Carnegie.
We drop into the now and train to be present. Immediate experience is, in many ways, the most important touchstone of value in our culture. We understand that no idea or intellectual understanding can substitute the experience.


INCLUSION

We strive for horizontality in our relationships. We welcome everyone and are constantly driven by enhancing our crew.


LEAVE NO TRACE

Leave more than what you take. We are committed to cleaning up after ourselves and endeavor, whenever possible, to leave such places in a better state than when we found them, including ourselves.


BUT, YOGA FIRST

You must go within to go without.
We believe in the power of yoga, and its 8 limbs for self-transformation. We are guided daily by these.


SELF EXPRESSION

While yoga is the dissolution of the self, circus is the exploration of all your selves. Yoga allows you to discover the power of awareness. Circus provides infinite possibilities of self-expression through non-traditional, communication and expression. In this spirit, the collective promotes all self-expression- from the inside out.


HOLISTIC SUSTAINABILITY

We strive for economic, social and environmental sustainability in all of our projects.
