Pre-Volcano Archive Page

This page is part of the Pre-Volcano Hedonisia Community Web Memorial.

After the destruction of Hedonisia Hawaii due to the 2018 Kilauea volcano eruption, Community Director, Mojo moved to Portland where he continues to manage the Hedonisia Activist & EcoFeminist Project Portfolio.

Our community had a focus on ecotourism and ecofeminism, we attracted wonderful people from around the world. We plan to start rebuilding in December 2021.

Residential Internship in Hawaii

At our eco-community in Hawaii we welcome enthusiastic, motivated applicants who would like to be part of this unique community where they can:

  1. Live in rain forest lodgings for 2 months up to 1 year.
  2. Learn to manage a community based on eco-tourism and social enterprise.
  3. Enjoy a '2-day work week' which 'pays' for your lodgings in paradise.

Our Intern Community Manager Program is an immersive educational work opportunity. You learn how to manage an intentional community based on EcoTourism and Eco-Feminism.

As an Intern Community Manager, you live, work, and hang out with Guests, Volunteers, and other Interns. Connecting with others in such a multifaceted way can be challenging but it allows for much deeper friendships to form.

With 5 days off per week, this Internship is perfect for artists, writers, computer workers, telecommuters or musicians who will have ample time and space to do their own work on the property whilst helping to manage an eco-tourist community.

Hedonisia has given me so much growth!  I am eternally grateful for the family I have made & the experiences we've shared. I came here a co-dependent burnt-out young woman. I am leaving a spiritually sound stress-free Fairy:-) This has been my first time traveling without my family.  I cannot wait to keep learning from the work I do and the people I've met. I will always consider Hedo my home and I hope to come back.  Thank you for everything this community has given me. I will miss my Intern Team so incredibly much. I'll stay in touch. Love and Light always <3 Emily 2015
