I wanted to stay longer in Bali and learn about permaculture. Jiwa Damai was the right place. I was as volunteer making a video about JD foundation and working a bit in the garden. I had really great time, and people were amazing. Yoga in the morning, meditation in the afternoon and healthy food. Margaret and Stephanie were great hosts and teachers! The only not good thing was dogs. I had no problem with them, but some of the others volunteers were really afraid because they were barking without reason. But anyway I strongly recomend visit the place! Is peacefull and with very positive energy. The location is perfect, 15 mins from Ubud.
