I stayed at Jiwa Damai retreat from 24 February to 11 MArch and participated in the international Permaculture Design class. I am enchanted with Jiwa Damai, its location and extensive gardens, friendly caring staff and services and the professional organization of the workshop. The food was organic and mail vegetarian and prepared in avery careful and loving way. I also very much appreciated the offering of early morning Yoga, (free of charge) and the daily evening Heart mediation(free of charge) guided by Margret, the caretaker. I rate Jiwa Damai and it facilities and food excellent. The only drawback was a small group of participants which disrupted the harmony continuously by provoking conflict within the group.
