We’re here to help you keep going.

Welcome to the Holy Women Icons Project. We are a non-profit eco-retreat center in Hawai’i, and our mission is to resource, restore and celebrate holy, revolutionary women* throughout history -- including and especially women like you who are tending and shaping our world today. Learn more.

* a note on language: The Holy Women Icons Project is an intersectional feminist organization, and we use the word “women” to mean a political category that includes women-identified, femme-presenting, two-spirited, genderqueer, trans, gender-non-conforming, non-binary, queer positive people...and yes, we work with feminist men, too!



We offer a variety of intersectional, justice-oriented events. Learn more about our upcoming retreats and workshops.

Hope is a song in a weary throat.
Give me a song of hope
And a world where I can sing it.

Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.
