On May 26, 2018, Hedonisia Hawaii Eco-Community was covered by lava from the Kilauea Volcano Eruption. Our community is still active after the volcano with our micro-community in Portland, our rebirth efforts in Hawaii and by continuing to work on our ecofeminist web projects.
From October 2019, we are accepting reservations for our first eco-hut on a nearby guava forest grove which we own that was not destroyed in the eruption.
It has been just over a year after our original community was destroyed. In memorial, we will start with one eco-hut for the first year. This will allow us to acclimatize to our new location as we slowly prepare to return to our original land.
In the beginning, and because of the volcano, our new community will be a smaller space of creativity and contemplation. Hedonisia Solitude – Artist & Creatives Colony will be a quieter place attracting artists, writers, tech workers and other people who enjoy the space to be creative!
During Hedonisia’s 14 year history, we offered a unique form of ecofeminist tourism. We developed a number of educational resources on how to make a living by being an activist or ecofeminist entrepreneur.
We divided our work into Brain, Body and Heart work options, which allowed many kinds of visitors to come and enjoy a discount working vacation in Hawaii where they could contribute their own heart, body or brain skills and experience.
At the new Hedonisia Solitude, volunteers, guests and interns are welcome to work on any websites in our EcoFeminist Entrepreneur Web Portfolio that they have interest, enthusiasm or experience in.
Hedonisia Hawaii Rebirth! Let the world know!
We created the Hedonisia Rebirth Crowdfund Campaign to help us rebuild. It is a wonderful way of making a donation!
You are also welcome to visit our Activist & EcoFeminist Web Portfolio, as a customer for our products and services. We will continue to work on these projects as we prepare to rebuild.
If you can’t make it to Hawaii you are welcome to be a Virtual Volunteer!
Thanks to all of you who support us and the work we are doing!
