We Gather


Our hope is that by sharing this experience with our friends and family, we will strengthen bonds and hone our intentions to have a greater impact on our planet.


This is about IMPACT. We want to take the energy we are investing into a New Years celebration and plant seeds beyond ourselves. With every participant we are apportioning a credit to be used towards projects that will be presented at the function. The function is Jungala~ where artistry meets philanthropy.

4 days in Punta Mona with Dj’s and the sounds of the jungle. We will partake in ceremony. At the forefront we will all share, about 60 of us, a ceremony at 1.1.19 New Years a ceremony guided by Guatemalan and Costa Rican tribe members- as New Years is a massive connection for both. They will guide us gratitude towards the present holdings in our lives and the igniting of desires - roots and blooming branches for the year to come. We will then dance under the moon all night in respect to our process as a community of influencers. This will be a ball! 

There will be talks on regenerative practices of indigenous tribe in Ecuador and their story of why they continue to regenerate, why they are a community, and what it means to them. The Guatemalan father and son are amazing artists who will convey the why as to their motivation for painting. The son has an amazing fusion of traditional Guatemalan art with visionary and esoteric elements. Every painting is a story, every person joining is part of this story. 

 

Testimonial

Last year for New Years, a small group of us traveled to Punta Mona, an eco-village situated on both primary Costa Rican rainforest and Atlantic beach front.

We spent the week hiking through untouched primary rainforest, eating incredible home-cooked meals prepared directly from the land, learning about indigenous wisdom and culture, participating in ceremony, swimming by day, dancing at night, watching the moon rise over the sea, eating fruits directly off the trees, bathing in mud from the riverbed, singing and playing instruments around the fire, and laughing with new friends.

Perhaps the best part was meeting the crew of people who make Punta Mona possible. People with big hearts, deep laughs, and open minds, who have traveled the world and share adventures from all its corners. To be honest, the hardest thing about leaving Punta Mona was saying goodbye to them. So when Nic, Devin, and Cassandra said they wanted to have us for New Years again, and shared their ambitious vision of co-curating an experience with us and our closest friends... we realized we had no choice but to say YES! 

Our hope is that by sharing this experience with our friends and family, we will strengthen bonds and hone our intentions to have a greater impact on our planet. In other words, we don't see this is a hedonistic escape from reality, but rather as a way to become more in touch with our reality–particularly Mother Nature whose beauty and love is easy to miss in the cities and desert.

If you come with us  on this adventure, we are confident that it will be a transformative experience and that we’ll return home with an expanded love of nature and a rejuvenated passion to bring our species and our planet into a more harmonious relationship.
