If you want to learn about yourself and feel energy from the inside out, then visit. You will leave a different person. Very nourishing beautiful food grown with care for the environment and made with love. Thank you Margaret

Jiwa Damai for me is like a home way from home. There is a beautiful mystical quality to the land that draws a person deep into a state of peace and tranquility. This is my second visit here and the moment I showed up I could feel a quiet peacefulness come over my entire being. The land is sacred and... More

It was difficult to leave Jiwa Damai today, our home away from home for 3 weeks. My husband and my daughter and myself spend three weeks now here. The first week was spent sharing a great 1/2 day seminar each day about initiating peace. Our daily routine was an early morning yoga class, then rice field walk, morning meditation and... More

My experience in working with Margaret and her staff/volunteers is always professional and very accommodating. They go beyond what is asked to ensure they do their best to meet the various needs of... More
