Join us in co-creating safe, nurturing, inspiring community, with a focus on how we can be deeply connected with each other, with nature and the world. This weekend is just before the summer solstice, when the energy of the sun is at its height.  It is traditionally a time of gathering and celebration. 

New Culture people are dedicated to examining every aspect of our existing cultures and experimenting to find out how to create a world based on love and freedom, rather than fear and violence.

       The simple act of sharing loving touch is a deeply powerful practice that most of us would like to have more often.  The intention for this event is to create a warm, loving and safe space for exploring sensuality, massage and relationship skills in an experiential way.

Come celebrate, be challenged, and enjoy yourself on the land and beach as we share our talents, knowledge and hearts with each other.

About La'akea Community


We are a small, family style, egalitarian, intentional permaculture community on the big island of Hawai'i. Staying with us is a vibrant immersion in our community lifestyle, and many visitors find it transformative and life changing. We are a committed group of people working together closely as a means to health, relationship vitality, economic stability, personal and spiritual growth. We focus on the social aspect of sustainability: how to live together with honesty, love and peace, and share power and leadership.

 We live in one of nature's most amazing places, surrounded by mountains, oceans, dense jungle and warm pools. We are a short drive from the active volcano and the fresh lava fields. Our visitors enjoy exploring the many unique features of this land, and the cultural activities nearby. Our organic farm practices tropical permaculture in our lush rainforest climate. We bought our land in 2005 and currently grow a large portion of our food.

We are growing many kinds of fruits and nuts, and have extensive gardens and greenhouses, taro beds and orchards. We keep bees, chickens, rabbits and sheep who are our natural lawn mowers in addition to providing us with food and fertilizer. Our electricity comes from solar photovoltaic panels, and our water is from a rainwater catchment system. We value alternative and sustainable building techniques.


We provide: Yummy food, unisex outdoor showers, composting outhouse toilets, full days of exciting programs, experiential workshops and activities. Clothing is optional throughout most areas of camp. The meeting spaces are a cozy indoor, bamboo-floor classroom and an open air pavilion by a pond. The food throughout the event will be tasty organic island fare, fresh from our gardens and orchards, as much as possible.
