Destruction & Creation – Calls to Action & Moving Forward
Pele, the Hawaiian Goddess of the volcano, is a female deity. So it ironic She chose to destroy a unique, popular ecofeminist community supporting female empowerment. Such are the ironies of life. 🙁
We will always remember the beautiful community we once were. We have preserved the Hedonisia Pre-Volcano Community Archives for those who wish to view the community as it was before we were evacuated on May 3, 2018.
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’. We continue working on the projects in our Activist & EcoFeminist Web Portfolio that made our community such a unique place.
Moving forward, we are working on options to rebirth the Hedonisia community.
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 ‘Hedonisia Artist & Creative Colony‘!
1. Hedonisia Hawaii Rebirth
Hedonisia was a unique EcoFeminist Community. We are trying to build publicity for our rebirth through social media and the press to increase our chances of our story going viral and international.
- Hedonisia Rebirth Crowdfund Campaign. 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. Help us rebuild.
- visit our Activist & EcoFeminist Web Portfolio, to see the web projects, products and services, that made our community such a unique place in paradise.
- be a Virtual Volunteer.
2. Follow us on social media!
The Hedonisia philosophy: We try to show that it is possible create a community and to make a living by being a ‘pleasurable activist’.
We have shed many tears over our loss. However, we have not given up! Thanks to all of you who support us and the work we are doing.
