Pleasurable Activism in Paradise! Welcoming Writers, Artists, Geeks, Eco-Builders and other Creatives
Lava to Lotus: Hedonisia Web Projects
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.

Community Director Mojo began collecting cultural erotic art and handicrafts on his travels. This collection was developed into a digital museum of erotic art and sensual literature from around the world.
Many of the originals were saved from the destruction of the 2018 Kilauea volcano eruption and are now housed at the Erotic Heritage Museum in Las Vegas. Members gain access to hundreds of historical erotica images which they can download royalty-free, for personal or business use.
The goal of this marijuana-based aphrodisiac is to show the benefits of marijuana compared to alcohol as a safer, empowering, and pleasurable tool for female sexual enjoyment. We have been working on an alternative to red wine that brings many of the same social pleasures as alcohol while maintaining control and sober consent.
