Permaculture Design Course Through the Heart (PDCTTH)
In addition to our Permaculture Design Course Through the Heart, Jiwa Damai permaculture garden is open to students interested in experimenting with permaculture theories or expanding their current permaculture knowledge. We are open to many different kinds of requests in the use of our facilities by the Permaculture community.


Experiencing Permaculture through the heart presents a unique opportunity to combine the theoretical Permaculture design method with “hands-on” experience, complementing active physical engagement with the soil with an inner attitude of appreciation and loving alignment with the earth.

This program is the first of its kind, working with the psychological framework of the mind, theoretical Permaculture principles, design and planning, planting, harvesting - all in alignment with the heart. It grounds the intellectual Permaculture approach through allowing a direct connection with the heart, a loving approach to ones Self, the other and the earth with its life-giving Flora and Fauna, to unfold.

The 3 module design course content follows the standards, topics, and number of hours laid out by Bill Mollison , the founder of Permaculture. You will receive a Certificate of Completion as a Permaculture designer (72+ hrs). The course is complimented by a daily early morning yoga session and an evening heart meditation. > Application PDCTTH 2015 > Accommodation > Program Info

What is Permaculture?
Permaculture is a theoretical method of holistic design creating a sustainable, balanced and natural environment and the foundation for a healthy community.

What is Permaculture through the Heart?
Permaculture through the Heart grounds this intellectual approach through deepening a direct connection with the heart, thus allowing a loving approach to ones Self, the other and the earth with its life-giving Flora and Fauna to unfold. Permaculture principles can be deepened through incorporating alive values, appreciation and honoring the earth with all its living Beings.This program is the first of its kind, working with the psychological framework of the mind, theoretical Permaculture principles, design and planning, planting, harvesting - all in alignment with the heart energy.
