What a beautiful and peaceful spot just 15 minutes from Ubud. Staying at Jiwa Damai as an intern for one month, was a great opportunity working on my on changing my work situation supervised by Dr. Margret Rueffler.

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

I stayed at Jiwa Damai for a yoga teacher training for 24 days. I feel 10 years younger after spending all this time there. There is so much nature around it. The food is delicious and cooked with much love. The staff are very friendly and always available to help you. My room was spacious and very comfortable. I am... 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

Early morning yoga with Miriam, fruit juice and breakfast, rice field walk, individual meditation, Afternoon meditation with Margret and a wonderful massage by Ketut. There was time enough to go to... More

Finding a location that suits the needs of 30 different individuals from different parts of the world with varied expectations is a challenge for any group organizer. 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

I hesitated before writing a review, not because I did not enjoy my stay, quite the contrary ... In fact, Jiwa Damai is the kind of place you would like to keep for yourself, as a hidden place! Actually, I started my stay in Bali at Jiwa Damai ... for 3 days ... it was really too short but so... More

I was lucky to spend 6 weeks at Jiwa Damai. It was the first time I discovered Yoga and meditation, what a great discovery. As a volunteer I also learned how to grow organically without chemicals and re-using all materials. The fruit and vegetable growing in the garden has a flavor you need to try to believe. Jiwa Damai is... More

I left Jiwa Damai on monday. I've been volunteering for 10 weeks and it seemed to me like a life time, every day there was something different to know and learn about lives , were they humans or plants, all it seemed connected. We were working for the plants and the plants were working for us. I met people who... More
