"Even the most reluctant cook would find it hard not to be fired up by Nicola's unique blend of boundless knowledge and sparking enthusiasm. At the risk of sounding like a stalker, after half an hour in the kitchen on one of Nicola's courses I defy anyone not to want to cook, eat and look like her!"

At the end of 2017 I embarked upon the beginning of the end of a thirteen year journey with acne. Having tried both topical and oral medication to clear my skin, I still had acne and to my dismay developed a sensitive bowel (IBS).
Bad skin plagued my twenties. I occasionally took comfort in the thought that by the time I reached twenty-five I would surely be free from the spots that controlled every decision I made. At twenty-six I resigned myself to a life with ‘bad skin’ because in my mind; I had tried everything. Fast approaching thirty, I am determined to clear my acne once and for all.
I have always assumed there was a connection between my irritable bowel syndrome and my breakouts, so I knew the first thing I needed to do was heal my gut. A friend recommended the Kushi Macrobiotic School in Sussex and as I finished my first class I realised that my instinct had been correct: the balance in my gut did indeed affect the state of my skin.
Every minute I spent listening to David and Nicola convinced me that I was on the right path to clearing my skin. Hearing their own personal experiences of how a Macrobiotic lifestyle has improved their family’s health was so incredibly inspiring that I left the class buzzing and thirsty for more knowledge.
Nicola and David teach macrobiotics as a way of life, not just a diet, with emphasis on balance, sustainability and variety. I have learned that macrobiotics isn't just one answer to one problem; it is one answer to hundreds of problems."

It's been a full-on twelve days and my brain is still fizzing with all the knowledge you have shared. As well as digesting the delicious food, I'm also digesting all the nuggets of wisdom!

Thank you for your hospitality, your lovely life teachings, your delicious cooking and everything shared in your classes. Thank you for giving me all I need to fulfil my dreams, in gratitude and love.
The word to describe this course is 'excellence', it reflects the heart of Nicola & David who treat everyone with unconditional acceptance. The teaching has been very well planned and paced, each lesson building on the last.
We were in the kitchen a lot and had so many great teachers who all shared their beautiful and delicious recipes, we were really getting spoiled! "Every single meal is so delicious, I can't even begin to put it into words!". I feel for the first time I can really stick to this and work with it at home.... At Nicola and David's there is just happiness that comes from every meal. I feel so satisfied and I have not one single craving!

Kushi Level 1 has taken my experience, knowledge and commitment to macrobiotics to a whole new level! I have loved every minute of the twelve day course and half wish that it didn't have to end. All the teachers were fantastic, everyone brought their own individuality and experience to the group, enhancing our learning every step of the way. A life changing experience, I can't wait to start Level 2!
A truly amazing experience that will help set me on a healing path, mentally and physically. I feel honoured to have been part of the experience and look forward to seeing you again soon!
