KAUAI, HAWAII | NEW YEARS EVOLUTION FEST

 

MAKANALANI TRIBE

 

THE TRIBE THAT CO-CREATED THE MOVEMENT

New Years Evolution Fest was the first official project of the paradigm-pushing, ancestrally innovative of International Tribe Design. A radical group of inspiring musicians, boundary-pushing ninjas and education creators came together from all around the world to gather on one the most remote paradises on Earth known as the Garden Island, Kauai to launch into the New Year.

Partnering together in powerful ways, they demonstrated what is possible when today's most knowledgable and skillful lifestyle designers and thought leaders engage in tribe synergizing playshops, presentations, adventures and conversations. 

If your morning sets the tone for you day then imagine how starting of the first five days of the biggest year of all of our lives together in a modern day tribe can blast you off into unavoidable success! Meet the Makanalani Tribe below.

MAKANALANI

A GIFT FROM HEAVEN

Off-The-Grid; Solar-Powered; Well & Rain Water; Fruit-Vegetable-Herb Garden; Tropical Paradise... 

Our Evolution Fest took place at Makanalani, a beautiful property with green pastures and mountain views that offers sanctuary and solitude. Makanalani means 'A Gift From Heaven' and it truly is.  This unique property offers an environment that allows people to hear and see the Divine. It is also a non-profit organization which offers a space for underprivileged children to get back to nature and back in touch with the island’s tropical bounty.  By giving the children a free holiday, Makanalani allows them to experience God’s love and the love of others. The goal is to show children that there is much  more to life than their immediate circumstances, and to inspire them to trust and expand their imaginations of what is possible. Makanalani depend on donations to provide for the children so 10% of the proceeds from this event went back to Makanalani.
