Macrobiotic Health Coaching Programme with Marlene Watson-Tara

Macrobiotic Chef Marlene Watson-Tara is hosting a two week intensive Macrobiotic Health Coaching Programme - 19th - 31st October 2015. All 12 classes throughout the course use Clearspring Products.

The dramatic rise in degenerative disease attributed to diet and lifestyle has created a demand for solutions to disease prevention and personal health maintenance. What is called for is a new generation of men and women who are capable of offering practical advice on how to live a healthy life in modern society.

During the two weeks of study you will have the opportunity to learn the techniques of effective Health Coaching and experience the power of healthy living. You will leave prepared to be a more effective promoter of natural health care and set up practice as a Professional Macrobiotic Health Coach.

The Macrobiotic Health Coach curriculum has been designed by Bill Tara, co-founder of the Kushi Institute, creator of the International Macrobiotic Institute (Kiental, Switzerland) curriculum and designer of the American and European Kushi Institute Teacher Certification Programmes along with his wife Marlene Watson-Tara.

This is a rare opportunity to study with teachers who are expert consultants and draw on decades of practical experience. Macrobiotic philosophy serves as the foundation of these studies and provides the link between the disciplines and life skills we will explore together.

This course also offers additional tools to enhance professional or Para-professional skills in both the orthodox or complimentary health and healing arts. Please email me for a full syllabus and costs. Bill and I look forward to working with you.

Here is what some of our students have to say:

"To; Marlene & Bill I consider myself lucky and fortunate that I had the opportunity to meet you two wonderful souls who enriched me by your teachings. It was not just a course or a programme but a complete learning and enlightenment to see health & nutrition from both of your valuable experiences and knowledge was amazing. I really appreciate and recommend your programme world-wide. Your open heartedness in educating and simplifying concepts of Macrobiotics will never be forgotten. I also really appreciate Bill for sharing his life experiences and his beautiful humour which made us look forward to every class and to Marlene who is just an incredible human dynamo."

Shilpa Arora, Nutritionist, New Delhi, India.

"I have studied and practiced macrobiotics in the U.S. and abroad for over 6 years. It was only after travelling to Scotland and taking the macrobiotic coaching course did the "Macro Way" finally come into focus for me. I gained a greater understanding of macrobiotics I was not able to achieve before now. Bill and Marlene's approach was fresh, modern, easy and informal...simplifying and clarifying....cutting to the core...truly lifting the fog on the essence of macrobiotics. Their teachings gave me the structure, the tools and support I needed to be able to share the macro message with friends and family in a more "user friendly" way.

I will return to my coaching clients, and hopefully cultivate new ones, with more confidence, enthusiasm, renewed energy, better insight and fabulous cooking skills. Thank you Bill and Marlene...I am forever changed. Cheers for now...Sam"

Samantha Nordin, Health Counsellor, Florida, U.S.A.

"If you want to turn your life around Marlene and Bill Tara are the people to help you achieve that. Having enrolled on their Macrobiotic Health Coaching course in Scotland I'm already beginning to feel like a new woman. The course is an intensive insight into how and why a plant based diet works.  More importantly Bill and Marlene work seamlessly together to teach how to apply this knowledge to your daily life.

With afternoons spent cooking we were taught how to prepare over 40 dishes and spent the mornings learning about the theory of why certain foods go with others and the impact on our bodies. With lots of great meditation and chi ball to keep the muscles active, you have a perfect balance of a break, a learning experience and the possibility of changing your life." As well as creating a fantastic business.

Jo Davison. London, Founder, www.thekindfoodcompany.co.uk

"There is a saying which goes something like "if you give a man a fish, you feed the man, if you teach a man to fish you feed the village" - and so with Marlene and Bill's courses - you are taught so much information, you in turn, can teach the world about food and its impact on your health, about living in harmony with the seasons and it's a very exciting place to be - both are so generous with their knowledge - not a question goes unanswered and you will literally leave a different person … oh and you'll have a real laugh doing the course which I found a massive bonus. Bill and Marlene are truly gifted teachers and share their work with such an incredible light heartedness."

Helen King, Naturopath/Masseuse, Surrey, England

In good health,
