On May 26 and 27, 2018, Hedonisia Hawaii was covered by lava from the Kilauea Volcano Eruption.
All 11 lodgings and 3 community buildings on the original Hedonisia property were completely destroyed. We have preserved pre-volcano Hedonisia in our Archive History.
We have shed many tears over our loss. However, we have not given up.
In November 2019, we return to Hawaii. On a neato rebuild our first eco-hut. Initially, it will be a smaller, quieter space of creativity and contemplation. We are calling it Hedonisia Solitude – Artist & Creatives Colony.
Post-Volcano 1st Visit
Writers & Creatives in Residence! Phase 1 – Accepting reservations from November 2019.
We own nearby property, which, and that was not destroyed by the eruption, we will start afresh with Hedonisia Solitude. Our first eco-hut will be rustic, with only minimal amenities. However, it will be located in a lovely forest of Strawberry Guava trees.
Hedonisia Solitude offers scaled-down Guest, Intern and Volunteer programs for those who wish to do Heart, Body or Mind work to enjoy a discounted stay. Phase 1 is ideal for the creative person or couple who wants to enjoy affordable solitude in Hawai!
Hedonisia Hawaii Rebirth! Calls to Action!
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’.
Hedonisia was a unique EcoFeminist Community. We are trying to build publicity for our cause through social and traditional media to increase our chances of our story going viral and international.
- Hedonisia Rebirth Crowdfund Campaign. Help us rebuild. 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 decide to return.
- Publicity. Our hope is to take the ideas we worked on in our community and bring them out to the world. Even if you can’t donate, please post about us on your social media or subscribe to the Hedonisia YouTube Channel.
For those who can’t make it to Hawaii, you are welcome to

Thanks to all of you who support us and the work we are doing!
