When you set the record for most naked yogis in a volcanic hot tub... #nowaterleft #31 #aquanitah @inanitah #ometepe #nicalife #inanitah #momentomcollective

"Give a man a mask, and he will tell you the truth." -Oscar Wilde .
.
.
How do we show up each day and each situation? Through which lens, which personal mask of perspective do we filter our persona? Do our clothes, cosmetics and costumes hide or embellish who we are? .
.
.
Growing up as a kid watching Mr Dressup, I loved the play with getting into costume and character. Even now at festivals and events, the ability to step into a new disposition through the mask of adornment is addicting. But what happens when your life becomes a festival...a circus? You realize that the only way to wear that mask is if it's never really been hiding anything to begin with. Your facade IS your truth - even when we need a mask to realize that. .

Living and running a business in Nicaragua - while the country teeters on potential civil war and government overthrow - has made for quite the experience and range of
emotions this past weekend. Amidst deadly protests (over 30 killed?) in the streets, our circus family has decided not to give in to the fear and continue our ways based on our values of community, skill-sharing and love. This included our weekly social circus program where we visited a public school in the poorest barrio (neighbourhood) outside of Granada and the next day co-performing at a show and memorial for the leader of the local circus initiative #CasadeBotellas. .
.
.
Taking backroads to get to the school -
while protesters and police blocked the streets - the kids and community were ecstatic to have some fun and learn some circus skills - over 200 people showed up! It was an honour to give back to the locals and country we love in a time they need it most.

My spiritual gurus tell me that the universe only speaks in positives. It will not manifest in your favour by feeding negative intentions with more negativity. Love + laughter > fear + hate

Happy World Circus Day! Now...'circus' means a lot of different things to a lot of different people. At @momentomcollective we define the new age circus as the creative nomads who continuously puss the buttons on their curiosity and pass their passion forward. It's an open community. A sharing platform - where everyone is both the teacher and student - tapping into and exploring the capabilities of the human body, mind and soul. Our true expressive potential. .
.
.
If this speaks to you, watch our new video on how to unleash your creative guru in a like-minded, conscious community. (The link is in my bio and on our Momentom FB page.) share the vid for your chance to win a week for you and a friend at our Artist Residency in either Nicaragua, Guatemala or Bali. .
.

Everyone's life is a bit of a circus...how will you shape and define yours? .

Contact Improv: fluid, unconditional openness to connection through movement. An explorative flow. When you surrender to the moment - free of judgement - it’s incredible the intimacy and shared space you can create without words.

Contact improv in the clouds @momentomcollective Artist Residency @eaglesretreats every week through May here in #sanmarcoslalaguna #guatemala .

To all those amazing individuals out there that smile first and assess why second...thank you. Unconditional love, laughter and silliness is such a potent medicine 😋✨🙌
.
.

I feel so fortunate in my life and travels to have come across so many people that fully embody and channel an effortless and unprovoked state of bliss. They allow themselves to surrender to spontaneous happiness right in the moment. Uninhibited laughter...Casual jubilation! .
.
.
It’s also interesting when that ease of joy can cause another person to feel the opposite. Aggression arises: “Why are you so happy??”, “Hey, contain yourself.”... “Can’t you just act normal??”
.
.
.
Never let other people project their own inhibitions onto your light. As we let our own radiance shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same...whether they accept that is up to them. 🙏😊

Keep shining @yogaholico you crazy wildflower! San Marcos misses you😘

How beautiful to see different cultures and beliefs merging with the same celebrations and good intentions. Easter in Guatemala fuses Christianity with traditional Mayan rituals to celebrate God, gifts of abundance from earth and my favourite, the beauty of impermanence - showcased through intricate flower mandalas in the street. They take hours to carefully curate and create to then be simply marched across in procession and swept up and gone forever. Creation, death, resurrection and the celebrated surrender to the full process. Feliz Semana Santa del Lago de Atitlán! .
