"Play gives children a chance to practice what they are learning." - Fred Rogers

We brought our @momentomcollective Social Circus program to San Pablo - one of the poorest towns on Lake Atitlan in Guatemala. It truly was one of the most rewarding experiences of our season here yet. To see how open - both kids and adults - were to play, circus skills, new ideas and just sharing a laugh, was something we often forget during travels and daily life. From swapping hip hop and parcour classes with the San Pablo Break Dance crew to taking over the town square with face paint, hula hoops, juggling and showing the kids how to fly in acro, it was a magical day for everyone involved. Both the kids and our Momentom residents are excited to swap more smiles and skills soon!

So much love for these two of @highvibeacro . From Indo to Guatemala, and setting up our Momentom Residency @arcoisissanctuary, there aren’t many people that I would trust and depend on to create a thriving community from scratch on the side of a volcano! Safe journey back home Vero and Taylor....and we’ll see you in Costa Rica for our Acro Retreat @envisionfestival in Feb! 🙃❤️🌴

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

But in all reality - or at least this current reality - these last two weeks have been some of the most challenging, and in turn rewarding, days of my life. From leaving our Momentom residency in Indonesia, 3 overnight flights and 4 days of travel to show up wet, cold, and sick to our venue in a remote location in a developing country, still under construction, rain delays, canvass tents stuck in customs and 6 days to build, furnish, decorate, stock and create and manage systems for the kitchen, transport, accommodation, café, promotions, sales, accounting and weekly workshop schedule to be open to a thriving artist residency…Wow. What a journey. And to think this is only one of four international residencies we’ve been planning and running this season alongside other retreats, festivals and coaching services. Qué loco! .
.

I’d be lying if I said I didn’t hit a few walls playing with the limits of my output of energy. But it’s when I take the time to step back and see the magic that’s manifesting daily that I’m reminded why we’re doing what we’re doing. The broken system of a take-mentality society is in our face more than ever. Being able to lead a community based on sustainable co-creation and helping each other step into our highest self makes me feel like I’m being the change I’m wishing to see in the world. And that makes me smile. This season in Guatemala is going to be MAGIC. Vamos! 🙌✨🇬🇹🌋

So much love for my crazy ambitious partners and the incredible people and locals I’ve been so fortunate to share the gift of community with. 🙏❤️

Bali you crazy beast! It’s crazy how busy you’ve got in the 7 years since I was last here (and additional 20 million more annual tourists with the airport expansion) but it’s always amazing to see the locals continue to celebrate their unique culture and approach to Hinduism - in the middle of the world’s most populous Muslim country. 🙏🌴✨

See you next year Indonesia! Now it’s time to hit the next adventure starting with three overnight flights in a row 🙄 Bali > Shanghai > LA > Guatemala City .

.

It’s so wild to think that my first Envision 4 years ago -bringing down a funky bunch bus of people from Nicaragua - was where I met @gaby_bonneville and now my 5th year returning to this amazing festival will be as facilitator of a retreat and theme camp for an amazing international company we’ve cofounded! La vida circo loco! 🤗
.
.
Our 9-day package includes your festival ticket, early entrance ticket, VIP lounge, transport to and from the airport, pre-set camping, 4-days of immersive yoga and acroyoga workshops, 4-days of meals during the retreat, early arrival pre-party and fire show in camp and so much more! .

These two. The two most badass, talented, hard working and inspiration creating women I’ve met...and I get to call them my business partners, mentors and best friends. 🙌❤️
.

Social media often skews the reality of what it takes to create and sustain a thriving international business and conscious community. As grateful as I am for the lifestyle and ‘office’ we get to call home (with work breaks that involve sunset laughs and beach hugs)...the amount of work, ambition, foresight, adaptability and energy to keep this passion project alive is pretty intimidating (dare I say a circus?) So big love out to @tlowton And @gaby_bonneville for the support and drive to keep things in functional flow. Aaaaand we’ve got some BIG announcements for projects happening in the new year! The Momentom on this journey continues! Safe trip back to Sydney Therese, seeya in Guatemala ✌️🌎🌋
