“Food is our best medicine. Balancing the energy of food provides the foundation for achieving good health. Without the foundation of daily diet, our approach is symptomatic and limited. Understanding food as energy lies at the heart of macrobiotic healing.” 

-Edward Esko, founder of Planetary Health and author of Contemporary Macrobiotics

Macrobiotics is the art and science of health and longevity. A natural and holistic system which encompasses the relationships and effects of diet, lifestyle, and environment, macrobiotics provides a comprehensive and effective approach towards establishing and maintaining improved physical, mental and spiritual health.  Michio Kushi, a leader of the international macrobiotic community, is the founder and President of the Kushi Institute of Macrobiotics in Massachusetts and the author of more than 40 publications. Through the Kushi Institute, Mr. Kushi has introduced and developed modern macrobiotics in the United States and is widely recognized for bringing this once alternative movement into the mainstream.

Followed by a reception and booksigning.
