About the course

Permaculture provides a design system which allows to move deeply into our abused eco-systems and release their inherent potential. Ethics of earth care, people care and sharing surplus are its unique contribution in today's world. They directly point the way to enter the new paradigm, from survival and lack of, to abundance and sharing.

Discover your Heart through Permaculture is a new approach to integrating Self-awareness and personal growth with the rich permaculture learning content. Its purpose is to enable the ethics to come alive by unfolding one’s own heart energy. The vibrancy of learning to love myselfextends then to other Selves, human-, energetic-, soil, garden, plant- and earth as an alive and breathing system. Thus, the wise and intelligent permaculture approach gains more depth through touching and working hands-on with the living soil as well as designing and planning creatively a garden, farm and environment.

To allow this love to flow consciously into the earth while practicing permaculture techniques has now been integrated into the Jiwa Damai permaculture curriculum. To honor and respect oneself leads  to honor and love flora and fauna and the life giving earth one works with.
