TWO AND THREE YEAR MACROBIOTIC & LIFE COUNSELLING PROFESSIONAL TRAINING
SHORT COURSES IN HEALTH PROMOTING COOKING CLASSES & SELF DEVELOPMENT
All classes teach vegetarian cooking without the use of diary, sugar or processed food, using organic ingredients wherever possible, with occasional optional cooking of fish which would be clearly stated upon booking. We use wholefoods as they contain the most nutrition and flavour. In most classes the students cook lunch, which is then eaten together.
The central inspiration in our work is 'Macrobiotics' which originally came from Greek, meaning 'big' (macro) 'life' (bios), the path to a long and healthy life in the most broad and deepest understanding of the laws of nature. Through a macrobiotic way of living, we gain clarity in achieving our life's aims. Macrobiotics is not a diet or a cure or a therapy, it is not a treatment or a religion. We can only describe macrobiotics as a way to approach life.
Our courses include learning about the energetics of food and integrate this understanding and knowledge into hands-on cooking in partnership with heart-centred emotional and spiritual work.
The International Macrobiotic School (Macro School) offers two and three year professional training courses. After the second year students qualify as a Macrobiotic Cook & Health Advisor and can begin to work with the public with cooking and providing general health advice. At the end of the third year students qualify as a Macrobiotic & Life Counsellor, enabling them to give in-depth consultations to individual clients. Students can also qualify as a Macrobiotic Specialist Cook & Healing Guide able to cook and care for people in a healing capacity. The professional training courses are residential at Eden Rise Retreat Centre, Totnes, Devon, South West England.
The Cooking School, at Buckyette Farm, Littlehempston, Totnes, Devon is based in its own purpose built kitchen and lecture room in a converted barn, on a farm in idyllic Devonshire countryside in the south west of England. We offer a range of courses in cooking and nutrition to empower people in taking much greater control over their health.
Our main approach is the Oriental model, understanding food as different qualities of chi, ki, or energy. This system gives us a detailed knowledge of the affects of foods on our physical health, and on our emotional and spiritual life.
Our classes are taught in an open and personal way, making them fun as well as informative. If you are looking for more understanding of the profound links between our food and health, or are wanting to make positive changes in your diet and life, we hope we have the classes to help you.
