Come to the Kushi Summer ConferenceJuly 9th, 2013
Every year, hundreds of people gather from all over the world, to learn, laugh and snarf great food. The summer conference become a touchstone for many people; a place to re-connect with macro friends and re-inspire themselves to find, and keep, their balance in the world. This year, it's taking place from August 1st through the 4th. PLEASE COME!!!
The summer conference has a long history. It used to take place in Vermont, first at a college, and then at a ski resort. It's taken place at a University in Massachusetts, and now we gather at a conference center in Basking Ridge, New Jersey. Yes, it sounds like "Baskin-Robbins", but it's not. We take over the kitchen at an IBM corporate center, and our chefs make the most fabulous feasts; 6 and 7 course meals, served buffet style, so you can chew, chew, chew to your heart's content. By the end of the four-day conference, you are GUARANTEED to feel happy, energized and light-hearted. That's the macro magic.
I've been going to the Kushi Institute Summer Conference since 1993, when I started working at the Kushi Institute. It has become a lovely ritual for me–where I bond with this special tribe–and I had no idea, 20 years ago, that one day I'd be teaching classes there! But through eating whole foods, dreams do come true. This year, I will be doing a lecture on hypnotherapy, one designed for newbies to macrobiotics, and a third one, called "How Healthy Are You?", based on George Ohsawa's Seven Conditions of Health. I will be in the company of truly heavy hitters: Michio Kushi, Larry Kushi, Christina Pirello, Wiliam Spear, Denny Waxman, David Briscoe, Ed Esko, and many others… it is a great pleasure and privilege to know all these great teachers.
If you need a shot in the macro arm… if you miss your fellow macros… if you're just getting into this and want to learn more in a warm and friendly environment… come to Summer Conference. And make sure to stop me in the hallway to say hello.
P.S. No fancy images in this blog post because a certain photo image company cracked down on me… I'd been posting images "illegally" for a while and I had to pay the piper. AND THE PIPER ASKS FOR LOTS OF MONEY… so if you post other people's images in your blog posts, consider yourself warned. It's not worth it.
