What is Permaculture through the Heart? Experiencing Permaculture through the heart presents a unique opportunity to combine the theoretical Permaculture design method with “hands-on” experience, complementing the active physical engagement with the soil with an inner attitude of appreciation and loving alignment with the earth.
This program is the first of its kind, working with the psychological framework of the mind, theoretical Permaculture principles, design and planning, planting, harvesting – all in alignment with the heart. It grounds the intellectual Permaculture approach through allowing a direct connection with the heart, a loving approach to ones Self, the other and the earth with its life-giving Flora and Fauna, to unfold.
For: This course is for all who wish to make a positive and effective change in their own lives and act as a change agent in the lives of others; for farmers, growers, gardeners, teachers, educators, town planners and more.
Facilitators: An international team of Permaculture Design and HeartSelf-IntelligenceTM specialists will teach and assist through the intellectual and experiential learning process.
Module 1 – Wed 01-Tue 07 Modules 1-3 Wed 01 – Tue 21 Oct 2014

Here is some of our wildlife at Jiwa Damai, the beautiful Praying mantis, the incredible intricately woven web of the spider and last no least our sacred Temple Snake which resides at #Jiwa Damai. The local priest says that this means a special blessing, since they only reside in Balinese temples. She is truly beautiful and she will look at you and observe you, and then majestically move away at a slow pace.

A new art was introduced at Jiwa Damai by our longterm volunteer David. It s a very special art to be able to climb a silken rope or a long piece of silk and then slide down while wrapping the silk around your legs. Miriam and the other girls tried as well. Was fascinating to watch.
Today, our volunteer team, Debra from The US, Robert from the UK, David and Miriam from Spain are having their breakfast in the Jiwa Damai itched, the dining room being closed for painting and repairs. Our kitchen fairy , Made, made some yummy banana pancakes.
