All around the world there are pockets of movements towards the conscious undertakings of community, and a big part of all of our communities is doing business. We all want to know how we can support those businesses that are local, sustainable and most importantly conscious. Now on Maui we have one easy resource to refer to for all of our information on conscious businesses,

For the project owner, Hoku, who grew up on Maui, it has been a long time dream to help bring the conscious community together. Maui is filled with conscious businesses, the mindset of the island life inspires so many to take up a progressive and conscious approach to what they offer the world. Now, with Conscious Maui, they have a place where they can all be easily found and promoted.

The nine top level business listing categories on Conscious Maui. Each of these categories breaks off into more sub categories.

At the heart of the site is a clear directory of businesses that organizes them into easy to peruse topics. Are you living on Maui and looking for consciously grown food? Are you visiting Maui looking for a conscious experience of Hawaiian Culture? Looking to go on a retreat or offer one? Looking for bodyworks, healers or reader? Outdoor activities?
