We are a group of curious, optimistic, and fun-loving individuals, who desire to make the most out of every moment and create long lasting friendships!

Kona Social exists to provide fun and innovative activities that support all areas of life, including social, physical, mental, and spiritual, while allowing members of the community to connect and make empowering and meaningful friendships.
This group is for you if:
Sample Events Include:
Social: From game nights to happy hours and unique events like a miracle berry party
Physical: From hiking to ocean activities
Mental: From book clubs to lectures and inspiring events like TedXSimucasts
Spiritual: From meditation to yoga and other meaningful events like Habitat for Humanity
I've been part of the Kona Adventure club for a brief while and it has been a great experience for me. I'm not as familiar with your group, but I don't want to see a community of like minded folk languish or die.. so here I am. I guess that my vision for the group would follow along the lines of things I'm doing anyway, but with more inclusion. I've got to get some legal advice on this, but basically adventuring and socializing. From regular trips to the active lava's ocean entry and playing at the break outs (put a stick in it), to potlucks and wild discussions about the future of the island, and humanity in general. Much of this island is only available to 4x4's, kayaks, and imagination. I'd like to have group camp outs and parties off the beaten path. I've got lot's of gear and intention to make that happen. I'd like it to be a conduit for fun and adventure, but also serious discussion and collaboration about how we thrive, if or when those big boxes stop coming, but while they do.
"I'm so proud of you and me.. the way we keep getting closer to being awake and being free. It's like we're all building different parts and pieces that come together to create a bold new strain of the species. Building life rafts fit for the deep.. far beyond the shallow. Honing blades of clarity to cut heavy hearts from fear's gallow. Growing new treasures on old cane land that sat fallow. (..) Because the light shines out, we help others in doubt. Because the light shines in, we fashion new skin. We live with a passion for self and kin. We are wise and rise because we love.. and god damn, we win!"
So I'm not sure what the next iteration of this group will be, it's kind of up to you and me. Your input is much appreciated.
I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
