Lava to Lotus: Hedonisia Web Projects

Lava to Lotus Web Portfolio
Lava to Lotus Portfolio

Though Hedonisia Hawaii was destroyed in the 2018 Kilauea volcano eruption, we continue to work on our portfolio of creative projects. Thich Nhat Hanh, the Vietnamese Zen Buddhist spiritual leader, has said, “No mud, no lotus.” Without suffering through the mud, you cannot find the happiness of the lotus.

We adapted his saying to our experience, losing our pre-volcano community to lava and then nurturing lotus flowers of creativity or, Lava to Lotus.

The Lava to Lotus collection has many educational resources for those who wish to make a living by making a difference. The creative non-fiction book projects also share the goal of trying to make the world a better place.

We invite you to enjoy these resources as they continue to evolve and grow.
