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. However, Hedonisia offers these post-volcano community options:
TASTE OF HEDONISIA – Community Living with our Weekly/Monthly Specials
For those who wish to enjoy a longer stay at Hedonisia, we offer reduced rates. Our Weekly Monthly Specials are Lodgings where Guests contribute one Community Support Volunteer Shift of 3 hours per week of stay.
Working in a social community environment often leads to a deeper social experience with interns, volunteers, and other guests who are on the property.
Guests really like it because it gives them a chance to feel like part of the community, and not just a ‘tourist’!
Volunteer work will usually consist of outdoor body work (weeding and landscaping) or indoor cleaning work.
However, we try to give volunteer tasks that tap into a guest’s experience and interests so they feel that they have made a more meaningful community contribution. Simply let us know in your application if you have any special Body, Brain or Heart work skills and we’ll try to give you a project that matches your skills!
Under the Weekly/Monthly plan, guests can choose either one 3-hour shift on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday or two Aloha Monday and Friday shifts of 1.5 hours each.
Weekly/Monthly Lodging options!
|Cottage, Bungalow, and Cabin|
Two-Bed Shared Spaces
|Private Eco-Huts or Tents|
i) Choice of Lodgings. Unlike Volunteers or Interns, who stay at designated lodgings, Weekly/Monthly Guests can choose the space they desire when making their reservation. Assuming space is available, they can reserve that lodging for their entire stay.
In other words, the monthly special is ideal for those who want stability and don’t want to move around!
ii) Monthly Rentals. Please note that we calculate a monthly rental for 4 weeks or 28 days!
iii) Value of Community Support Shift: A Community Support Shift is valued at $20 per person. So if you don’t want to work you can simply pay the fee and enjoy another relaxing day in paradise!
