International Macrobiotic Shiatsu Society- The International Macrobiotic Shiatsu Society (I.M.S.S.) was founded by Shizuko Yamamoto and Patrick McCarty in 1986. Originally from Japan, Ms. Yamamoto has practiced and taught her comprehensive style of shiatsu for over 40 years. In the beginning, macrobiotic shiatsu practitioners were a loose-knit group devoted to promoting the combination of shiatsu with lifestyle information including the macrobiotic diet.

Over the years, classes, seminars and workshops have been presented around the world. While there is no formal school nor curriculum for certification, there have developed a number of programs that are approved by Ms. Yamamoto and presented by her students. Sensei Yamamoto's teaching is the classic apprenticeship style. She helps students in their practice at the many international locations where she teaches. This form of teaching requires that students be self-motivated and independent, qualities she feels are essential both professionally as well as personally.


Exploring Tao with Fun - Though Macrobiotics is not a religion, it has common roots with several ancient, spiritual philosophies. Of these, the principles of Taoism and Macrobiotics are interwoven in a sublime tapestry. Do these two Ways spring from the same foundation? Or, does one precede the other? A subject for interesting discussion!

"Exploring the Tao with Fun" provides an excellent introduction to Taoism, traditionally and as applied to daily life. Visit and enjoy!

Ohsawa & Gurdjieff - A commentary by David Kerr. Citing the similarities between the philosophy of George Ohsawa (Yukikazu Sakurazawa) and George Gurdjieff.

Gurdjieff (1866-1949) was born in the Russian Empire, in Armenia. He dedicated the first half of his life, traveling in Asia and the Middle East, seeking a higher understanding of the order of the universe and of our relationship within that order. In 1922, he settled in the Paris area, where he wrote and taught for many years. In fact, he was living and teaching in Paris, at the same time as George Ohsawa.

One of Gurdjieff's primary students, Peter D. Ouspensky (1878-1947), wrote about and elaborated upon his teachings, during the first half of the 20th century

Many of Gurdjieff's and Ouspensky's teachings and ideas are strikingly similar to macrobiotic principles and to the teachings of George Ohsawa, in particular. Usually, these similarities have been attributed to the fact that both philosophies spring from Asian / oriental tradition. That is, the two schools of thought resemble one another because they have common roots.

However, David Kerr, a long time student of the macrobiotic way, proposes a new explanation for this similarity. That Ohsawa actually met with Gurdjieff, or studied his teachings. The following pages contain notes, compiled by Mr. Kerr, illustrating the common thread that runs through, both, macrobiotic principles and the teachings of Gurdjieff / Ouspensky.

His approach is dynamic, simple and comprehensive, it is untroubled by esoteric jargon and rich with humor. Bill’s teaching addresses the huge gap in our social understanding of how to create health in the individual and in society as a whole.

MacroTreats - are macrobiotic desserts and snacks, including a variety of nutritious bars and cookies. In addition to being vegan, our products do not have any refined sugars or artificial sweeteners. Instead, MacroTreats use organic ingredients, whenever possible, and are grain sweetened with brown rice syrup, which retains nutrients. They contain no preservatives, synthetic additives, hydrogenated oil, refined flour, or artificial flavors/coloring.

Blooming Grove Note: In addition to more beneficial, complex carbohydrates, Rice Syrup and Maple Syrup do contain simple sugars. Therefore, they are classified as "very yin" in the macrobiotic way of thinking. MacroTreats provide an excellent alternative to the usual fast food snacks but do not represent a complete macrobiotic regimen.

South River Miso- We decided that if we were going to be so bold as to make miso in New England, we wanted to do it in the inaka tradition. In 1981, We hired Jerry Sawma, a local, master timber-frame builder, and constructed a post-and-beam shop out of native timber. The design is based on a small traditional miso shop and features a massive masonry stove (built by Albie Barden of Maine) with a wood fired cauldron with which we steam the grains, boil the beans, and also, heat the shop.


Eden Foods - Eden now has a great online store for all of their products. There are no minimum orders and shipping is inexpensive. Check it out!

Eden’s Clinton, Michigan headquarters – 26 contiguous acres with native woods, wetlands, and organic gardens – is home to our main offices, warehouse, organic mill, and production line.

The Blue Mountain Center of Meditation - offers instruction and guidance in meditation and allied living skills, following the method of Eknath Easwaran. In addition to offering many practical guides to meditation, their Nilgiri Press has excellent english versions of The Bhagavad Gita, The Dhammapada and the Upanishads. They also provide a very thoughtful free newsletter.


National Organic Standards - The United States Department of Agriculture has completed collecting comments from the public, concerning the quality of the food that will be eligible for federal organic certification. The USDA received an overwhelming response that genetically altered foods must not be labeled "organic".

As a result, the USDA has determined that the new federal "organically grown" label will not be allowed on genetically altered food. In addition, produce grown in sludge and irradiated foods have been declined. Thank you all, so much, for helping the U.S. government to reach these important conclusions.


The Organic Trade Association - this trade group represents the organic industry in North America.


The Sustainable Farming Connection - Natural Agriculture and methods for maintaining a continuous supply of whole foods.


The Union of Concerned Scientists - Though not a macrobiotic organization, this group does monitor the utilization of new technologies and tries to steer their application towards more harmonious ends. They are also dedicated towards increasing the public's awareness of the dangers of bio-technology and global warming.

As our needs for sustainable agriculture and sources for safe energy grow, sites like this can provide new ideas and valuable information.


The Netfriends of Tibet - Ritva Nybacka's site, dedicated to Tenzin Gyatso, the fourteenth Dalai Lama, and to the freedom of Tibet.

"For as long as space endures
And for as long as living beings remain,
Until then may I, too, abide
To dispel the misery of the world"

"The Dalai Lama has one of the most macrobiotic outlooks I have seen. His visions and comments are penetrating, peaceful and whole. His book, Kindness, Clarity, and Insight (Snow Lion Publications) is highly recommended."
-Wayne


Light of Brian - We thank Beth Berry and her brother, Brian, for their heartfelt and sincere gift of love, and we wish their mission many years of lightness, on this good earth and beyond.
