Don't buy stuff,EXPERIENCE life.

Collection of Experiences


Hedoniac is building a collection of experiences.

A FREE library of universally applicable impactful once-in-a-life experiences for everyone to consult, enjoy and be inspired from.

We know that this project will never end as listing the infinite number of possible experiences that move human beings is just impossible.

Nevertheless, we strongly believe in leading by example. Hedoniac wants to give everyone a guidance and practical application of rational hedonism principles.

By directly experiencing all the beauty LIFE can offer, you will become the change we, our community, wanna see in the world.

We want to share our passion for life with you.


Hedoniac is for you IF you

  • are looking for a collection of once-in-a-life qualitative experiences to inspire you
  • want to be part of something, not sit on the side lines observing
  • want to grow and mature by actively challenge and sculpt your life
  • embrace the unknown
  • want to fight to pursue your happiness at any cost
  • feel frustrated by: socialisation > education > work > marriage > mortgage system
  • believe this world also needs your push to steer toward a different direction

It's also probably for you IF you

  • think that life is full of opportunities and can offer you much more
  • feel that technology and digital communication are overwhelming us
  • want to have a healthier lifestyle in line with nature
  • caught that mass media and corporations are not telling you the whole story
  • have enough of just being a system gear, feel exploited and pushed to consumerism
  • want to know you better through living new experiences
  • need a slow down of your life and want to learn more about concepts like “slow living” and “frugalism”

It's definitely NOT for you IF you


  • are narrow minded, lazy or scared about the world and the wonderful people populating it
  • need an happiness recipe or guidebook that you can easily apply to your life
  • look for an infinite quantitative-driven DB of user-generated experiences
  • look for commercial (tripadvisor-like) experiences
  • like to sit on a sofa and be a spectator of life, enjoying passive activities
  • want to follow or join a political movement, sect, cult or new religion

This is what we consider an experience:

Universal

We want each and every Experience collected here to be for any person. They are universally replicable regardless of status, age, sex, race, wealth, psychological profile, type of body, etc. Self-challenging personalities and anxious people will both find something for them.

Active

Hedoniac concentrates mainly on those experiences that actively involve subjects into an action, being this phisical, sensorial, mental, creative or relational one. Passive experiences where subjects stand or sit stairing at something are rarely considered, if they are not incredibly moving.

Impactful

Despite being something entirely subjective, we define an experience as something that moves the subject and has some sort of psychological or phisical impact on him/her. Being this good memories, bodily sensations, self-esteem, personality, emotions, satisfaction, etc.

Immediat

Only short term experiences are considered. Despite there are surely medium and long term experiences that moves deeply, those are not on the scope of this website. We focus on creating a collection of experiences with instant gratification and, possibly, without initial preparation.

Outside-the-box

Well-known and “commercial” experiences move less just because they are broadly documented and have been already mentally anticipated by subjects. This website mainly focuses on outside-the-box ones, despite we made some exceptions vs. some ordinary ones too.

De-Localized

We try to force ourselves NOT to bind an experience to a specific time frame, event or location in the world. We want it to be replicable by anyone in any part of the globe and at any time. Despite that, for some deeply moving experiences, we made exceptions as we think they worth it.
