With the destruction of Hedonisia Hawaii due to the Kilauea volcano eruption, Community Director, Mojo moved to Portland where he continues to manage the Hedonisia Activist & EcoFeminist Web Portfolio.
We suffered a great loss with the volcano.

Creative Volunteer Heart Work!
Heart work is the category is for volunteer or intern work trade contributions that are a bit more on the creative side.
Having great ‘human’ or ‘heart’ skills is invaluable for sustainable community happiness!
Here are some creative ‘heart’ jobs we have for artistic volunteers or interns:
a) Heart/Body Work:
- Massage Therapists or Body Workers – Body workers or Personal Trainers may practice their specialty for up to three hours per week as part of their Volunteer work. A Volunteer Masseuse will be working on Interns and the “Volunteer-of-the-Week” at Hedonisia.
- Yoga Teacher: Yoga teachers may volunteer 1-2 hours of their volunteer quota a week to teach a community class.
- Feminist Self-Defense Instructor! Though this is also body work, we included it in the Heart section because we believe in strong female empowerment on an emotional level! As part of our female friendly travel policies we welcome self defense instructors who can offer a Women’s Self Defense class as part of their volunteer work hours!
b) Creative/Artistic Work
Graphic Designer: for Hedonisia logos and social enterprise online projects.
