Macrobiotics is the philosophy, science and art of living to your greatest potential for as long as possible.
Semiotics is the study of signs and symbols in our world, seeking to find connections where none at first appear. Macrobiotics is a true semiotic approach to daily life, giving you the ability to interpret the signs that are all around you and learn how to best navigate your life based on them.
Daily food is a cornerstone of living a great life. Diet & cooking have a profound and powerful influence on creating our overall health. This influence manifests itself in the quality of our blood & thereby our mental and emotional well being. Of course, being healthy, balanced and energetic affords us the opportunity to grow spiritually according to our heart’s desire.
It offers a large view of life. A way of perceiving, pursuing, creating and living a Great Life full of energy, good humour and adventure. Understanding and balancing the energy of our daily food, relationships, environment and activities is the true focus of macrobiotics.
The philosophy of macrobiotics can be traced to the wisdom of peace-loving people around the world. Its essence is universally understandable and as such may be used and enjoyed by anyone, anytime, any place. As with all learning, leadership and health discipline study, practice accelerates one’s progress.
Hippocrates, who is considered the founding father of modern medicine, said “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food”. This common sense principle is at the heart of macrobiotic philosophy.To find out how to start a macrobiotic diet, please refer to our FIND A MACROBIOTIC SPECIALIST and START A MACROBIOTIC DIET sections on the website.
