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.

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.

Recently we had a group of  30 russian ladies staying at Jiwa Damai for 10 days.

The ladies chose our retreat to be the location for their Mandala Workshop on Bali.

This particular workshop was about embracing your femininity. The russian ladies in their beautiful colored clothes, mostly long skirts, spent their time at Jiwa Damai meditating and walking through our gardens and among the palm forest.

Most came directly for Russia and enjoyed the workshop and Bali very much. We at Jiwa Damai got excellent feedback on the beauty and serenity of the place and the excellent organic, mostly vegetarian cuisine we were able to provide. The language barrier was actually fun, since very few spoke little English.

Russian ladiesThanxs for staying at Jiwa Damai!
