International Macrobiotic School

Current Situation with Coronavirus Restrictions

We are very happy to see the infection rates dropping and life getting back nearer to normal, and we are now looking forward to offering a wide range of courses at Murtwell again - all with safety measures firmly in place. We have a very special location with a fabulously spacious and light teaching kitchen, a traditional Devon farmhouse, beautiful gardens - all with a very peaceful and uplifting atmosphere.  

The pandemic has really underlined the importance of us all learning to look after our health well through our daily cooking and way of living. The greater our health, and the less we have the chronic conditions that make us more suseptible to this virus, the better protected we are from this and other infections and illnesses.

Please check out our short courses beginning from September onwards. After the great success of our online courses during the lockdown, we shall be continuing to offer these from the autumn - details coming on this website soon - and reach those who do not find it easy to come to the school in person.

About The International Macrobiotic School

This school is about empowering people to create and maintain health and happiness using the enriching alchemy of macrobiotic cooking as a central way of creating physical health, along with emotional and mental balance.

With us, you will learn how to clear old emotions and behaviours to step into your real self through food, lifestyle and exercise. We teach you to transform high quality sugar-free and dairy-free wholefood ingredients into the most healing, delicious and varied plant-based (mostly vegan) meals, drawing on Oriental philosophy and ingredients, while valuing the importance of local, sustainable food.

Discover the basics with one of our Short Courses, transform your health with our one year Holistic Nutrition for Body and Soul course, or gain professional skills on our Health Coach & Wholefoods Cook and Macrobiotic Health Consultant courses.

The International Macrobiotic School is a leading centre of education in natural healing, with courses based in the South West of England and Gent in Belgium, with experienced and international teachers.
