We are now building some new simple accommodation in our garden for interns and volunteers. The walls will be made from Bamboo and the outside will be decorated with recycled bottles. Here are two designs with glass bottles for one of the rooms. There will be four rooms made with natural and recycled materials.

At Jiwa Damai we are co-sharing the area with a variety of snakes. This particular one was found sleeping under a plastic cover at the ping pong table. Locally known as a temple snake it is usually only found in Balinese Temples and is considered a blessing by locals. Isn’t she beautiful? We are practicing here, at Jiwa Damai a great respect for the snakes. It is us who take away and penetrate their living habitat. This one is somewhat poisonous.

Our Garden Lumbung from Jiwa Damai, which has housed many volunteers so far was badly in need of repair. We had to remove the beautiful alive cover of passion fruit. It was embedded in it and we had to remove the old wrotten pieces. Phillip, a German carpenter is undertaking the renovation now. The termites had eaten much of the structural posts. Since the last violent storm we had, several trees had fallen and after being cut properly they came in very handy to replace the old posts. We will keep you updated on the progress.

Cacao beans are seeds of the Theobroma cacao tree, a small evergreen tree grown in Mexico and South America. Cacao beans are roasted and ground to produce cocoa and, after further processing, are the basis of chocolate. When the beans are dried at low temperature, however, they are called raw cacao beans, which can be consumed whole, broken into pieces called nibs or ground to produce raw cocoa powder. Cacao beans are rich in natural antioxidant compounds with many health benefits.

At Jiwa Damai we are happy to host many yoga groups who are training in order to become yoga instructors. Here are the lovely thoughts of Mindi.

Jiwa Damai is a place that contains so much radiant beauty. This mystical, magical place is where true transformation occurs. Margret Rueffler, the founder of Jiwa Damai, has dedicated the last 10 years of her life to preparing the land for guests who desire to do the deep internal work. I have witnessed countless people who visited and stayed on the land and who have healed in very powerful ways. I highly recommend a visit to Jiwa Damai for those who are looking for an exploration of the heart and of the Self“, Mindi, our lovely yoga trainer instructor

And this is a surprise song from our February’2015 group.
