Last month we were hosting our first Permaculture Internship – Permaculture through the heart at Jiwa Damai.
This innovative program blends the core principles of tropical Permaculture gardening with Self exploration from a transpersonal psychological perspective.
The internship is a combination of personal growth processes, allowing our heart energy to flow into our work with the earth, environment, water, soil, plants and people. This program is the first of its kind, working with the psychological framework of the mind, theoretical Permaculture principles, design and planning, planting, harvesting and food preparation – all in alignment with the heart energy.
Participants came from Germany, Switzerland, France, Canada, Ireland, Indonesia and Australia to participate in the first two weeks.
Some of the participants stayed on for the complete 4 weeks training.
On this picture we see our participants with Ketut Badung, our head gardener at Jiwa Damai, studying the healing qualities of the indigenous Balinese healing plants.
Here we see the group during a field trip visiting an organic producer on Bali studying an organic way of planting and watering.
This picture is taken during the 2nd week, which focused on Unfolding the Heart Quality.
Participants explore and study the personality as an interactive system, becoming acquainted with their own inner dynamics and peace potential by allowing the qualities of the heart to unfold.
The 2nd Permaculture internship will take place in September 2013.
