POST-VOLCANO HEDONISIA

Hedonisia Post-Volcano Lodging & Volunteer Options

The 2018 Kilauea volcano eruption destroyed Hedonisia Hawaii Eco-community. Our land is 75% covered by lava. We are still waiting for the government to build road access to our property.
We have shed many tears over our loss. However, we have not given up.

Pele, the Hawaiian Goddess of the volcano, is a female deity. We appreciate the irony that Pele chose to destroy a unique, popular ecofeminist community supporting female empowerment. Such is life.

There is a Hawaiian saying: "Ukuli'i ka pua, onaona I ka mau'u" (tiny is the flower, yet it scents the grasses all around it). It translates to 'small things can have a great influence'.

Moving forward, we are working on options to rebirth Hedonisia into a smaller, more focussed micro-community.

1. Post-Volcano Volunteer and Lodging Opportunities

We own another small piece of land. It was spared from the current lava flow. It is a great temporary home for a beautiful cozy camping home. We are selling it to raise funds to rebuild on our original land.

2. Hedonisia Hawaii Virtual Community

At our pre-volcano community, we tried to show that it is possible to make a living by being a 'pleasurable activist'. We welcome EcoTourists, Social Entrepreneurs, Writers, Techies, & other Creatives to enjoy a discount camping vacation working on the web projects that made our community such a unique place.

3. Hedonisia Diversity & Free Speech Workshops

This is our most exciting post-volcano project. This unique communication workshop offers an alternative way of reaching out to each other that is sorely needed in these divided times when everyone is so sensitive about being offended.

4. Follow us on social media

Our hope is to take the story of our Pre-Volcano Community and bring it out to the world. We welcome posts about us on social media. Or simply subscribe to the Hedonisia YouTube Channel.

Our land is mostly covered by lava but there is a beautiful 1-acre sliver of green left which has allowed us to map out our future community plans when we return.
