Macrobiotics is not just a diet, it’s a way of life: a “great life”. The term is derived from the Greek words “macros” meaning “big or great” and “bios”, meaning “life” and was originally coined by none other than Hippocrates, the father of medicine in Ancient Greece.
Common misconceptions have people believe that it is an incredibly strict regime, but nothing could be further from the truth. Above all, macrobiotics is all about balance, and its founder, George Ohsawa, suggested that it took time and skill to use food and lifestyle choices to find your own individual balance. Each person’s approach to macrobiotics is individual and you can delve into the philosophies as much or as little as you please.
Here are some things that Macrobiotics is NOT:
- a religion
- a brown rice diet
- a ‘deprivation’ diet
- a Japanese diet
- a raw diet
- ‘mini’ meals
- a yoghurt
Here are some things that Macrobiotics is:
- a natural way of life
- seasonal eating
- a nutritionally sound, balanced & healthy diet
- vibrant and delicious meals
- creates order and harmony
- peaceful living
- happiness & health
- caring for our environment
- clearer thinking
- creates vitality & is energising
Macrobiotics is a lifestyle based upon a natural and traditional way of life. It teaches us how to make the right food and cooking choices for our geographic environment, health and lifestyle. Its deep philosophy understands that food is energy and is based on the ancient concept of yin and yang. We really are what we eat and the simplicity of living in harmony and connecting with nature creates happiness and health.
So if macrobiotics is about creating balance, eating well, living a healthy lifestyle and through all this, achieving freedom from our incessant chattering minds, what’s not to love?
As Michio Kushi said: “These days, we need macrobiotic foods and principles more than ever. When many people are healthy and happy and live in harmony with nature, the world becomes a more peaceful place”.
Whether you have been drawn to Macrobiotics through curiosity or as a healing practice or even if you have been using the philosophy for a long time, our school has something for you.
We offer teaching for all levels, from the curious beginner to the advanced practitioner. We have lived by this philosophy for many years and macrobiotics is our passion and we are dedicated to passing on as much of our knowledge as possible to others.
