transforming suffering into tangible acts of hope

& Peaceful social Activism


Hard on Karma Creations

HOK sprang from our first engagement with the universe of Olive Retreat in the art of transforming individual suffering into peaceful social activism. It's our Karmentum.

We support those who wish to spread their personal experience to the world around them. The projects we accept aspire to 'detox' the very Toxic Hard Karma we have created for ourselves as human beings. All creations are, needless to say, sustainable, vegan and zeocratic.

We only support peaceful activism coming from self awareness and a meditative lifestyle, and that is inherently zoecratic.

I was always told to ‘listen’ to my breath, but Olive teaches to FEEL the breath. Wow, what a difference!
— Natalie, vegan peaceful activist

dont be normal, be healthy

We are not surprised if you are suffering, and might in fact think it very strange if you were not, given human impact on the earth and its living inhabitants. Pain is always our teacher. Listen to it, feel it, learn and change.

The rLOVEution is already happening. It’s clear. A drastic change is happening, a growth in awareness and an increase in the sense of being fed up. This time the revolution is taking place within ourselves. One day we feel something within us shifts and we just have to say “no more!” That “no more” comes from the Source.
— Cristina, co-founder of Olive Retreat and HOK

If you feel a “no more” growing within you. If you feel that enough is enough and you want to do something and not just think about doing something, we can help.

We help you find your Activist Way, whatever it might be and however big it might be. If you want to start a local NGO, paint your city walls, run for peace, cook for veganism, dance to feel, or in any other way you want to communicate a message, we can help you.
