Our Approach

A Fresh, Accessible & Effective Style of Macrobiotics

It is important to us to be a trustworthy institute that can get you the newest, most valuable information available for living the best life you can – much of which is created right here! Through courses, lectures, our blog articles, discussions, and live presentations, our goal is to consistently bring you an uninfluenced account of current and past health practices from the healthiest, longest standing civilizations to have lived. We hope our message gets to you in the easiest possible ways and that we can become the place you turn to when you need facts that are not based on special interests or funding from mega corporations. Our success comes from students who take SHI courses and generous individual donors like you!

SHI Macrobiotics regularly features new articles written in our health blog, we develop individualized written meal plans, we design easy-to-follow visual materials, and we provide access to books that simplify some of the most difficult macrobiotic concepts. If you would like to receive monthly emails that include news, recipes, controversial topics, and events – our newsletter is a great starting point!

Finally, we are constantly creating and improving our macrobiotic programs to offer exciting introductory seminars, cooking classes, advanced certificates and training, and macrobiotic counseling. Our macrobiotics programs are designed for those looking to become familiar with macrobiotics for the first time, as well as; beginner, intermediate and advanced macrobiotic practitioners. These courses are crafted directly from leading global experts and include insight & participation from the foremost leaders on macrobiotic practice and even more general plant-based diet experts.

Nutritional Plans

If creating a macrobiotic diet meal plan is giving you trouble, let us prepare it for you. Basic macrobiotic diets & custom meal planning available.

Weight Loss

Macrobiotics is not a fad diet. But, when practiced properly it can be a quick and sustainable way to change your body to a it’s natural weight.

Mental Peace

The principles of yin and yang are important to the balance of body, mind, and nature. A seminar on mindfulness can bring things into equilibrium.

Home Learning

Time and self-discovery have been reduced along with other human activities associated with long standing civilizations. We publish content online to help you save it.

Natural Balance

Mindfulness and macrobiotics connect you to nature and it’s regular patterns. Take a 9 star ki seminar to increase consciousness of that relationship.


A macrobiotic, vegetarian, or vegan diet should include healthy exercise as well. Join us for a “do-in” session to keep your body active for optimal functioning.

They do not make profit by providing this education to the world.
