“It isn’t who you are; it’s what you are.”
Larry A. Moen
Writer, father, lecturer, farmer, artist, manufacturer, wholesaler, retailer, teacher, graphic designer, motorcyclist, photographer, music producer, steward of the land and Ordained Minister, Moen has a background rich in business success.
Born in Chicago, Illinois, he is a Vietnam Navy Seabee vet. After Vietnam, Moen assisted in building and running a golf course and country club. He went on to create a line of sports clothing that generated a lot of money, yet Moen was haunted by the knowledge that he was seeking something else, something money couldn’t buy.
On a quest to determine this need, he began to focus on self-improvement and his own spirituality. From 1988 to 1995 he wrote inspirational books, of which eleven are published, wrote music for meditation, and traveled the world looking for his Spiritual path. Once he understood it was inside of him the entire time, he became motivated to steward land in Hawaii.
In keeping with the movie version of a self-sustaining village, Moen has embarked on a mission to create such a place.
