“During my six weeks of internship with Lagu Damai Foundation while staying at Jiwa Damai permaculture center, I was working on a psychological self- exploration focusing on personal growth and self-development.
My personal growth project included five main dimensions: the mental, the emotional, the physical, spiritual and nutrition. Through tools such as the daily HeartSelf-Intelligence meditation, yoga and garden work I was able to explore and experience myself in a very new way. I received excellent guidance and supervision throughout the whole time of my internship from Dr. Margret Rueffler, a transpersonal psychologist. I am deeply satisfied with my internship. I didn’t expect such an in-depth personal growth process. I feel that this internship has been a wonderful opportunity to expand my horizon on many levels and will be a huge benefit for my future.”, Natalie our intern.

This Sunday brought a surprise to Jiwa Damai. Wira’s family came, mother, wife and brother to dedicate and bless the new car. Looking at all the various offerings which they had prepared and brought, it was still considered a small ceremony. The hood of the car was covered with special cloth and decorated with fresh flowers. Goods, fruits and other items were offered to the gods, on the left for the negative energies to leave and on the right for the positive to come in. It was all sprinkled with holy water and supported with incense smell. The lower part of the car was hung with elaborate bamboo creations and will remain on the car.
We are planning to build the first Earthship inspired structure in Bali, in the beginning of 2016. Jiwa Damai is launching a call to action for all the people who have experience in sustainable building to join as volunteers.
