The Kushi Institute of Europe


Many women have already successfully overcome similar problems and developed confidence in knowing that they can enhance and maintain their health naturally. They have become conscious of the choices available to them, and they have taken responsibility for the future health and happiness of themselves and their families, contributing to self-realization and fulfillment at many levels.

These days, modern women seem to be more free because of the industrialization of the food industry, but the price they pay for consuming this diet is a loss of control of their own health and the health of their families. Fast food is a fast ticket to medicalization.

For a fresh new start, join these magic study days. Through the classes and workshops, eating together and getting to know one another, you will gain a wealth of practical information and insight that you can immediately begin to apply at home.


Women's Health Program

Improve your health and energy in a natural, macrobiotic way

October 27 - 31

with Adelbert and Wieke Nelissen

A comprehensive five-day program
The Women's Health and Vitality Program offers a dynamic approach to women's health and beauty from a traditional macrobiotic and contemporary holistic perspective. Modern science and medicine are increasingly documenting the importance of a balanced diet centered on whole foods and living in harmony with nature as the keys to health, happiness and longevity.

This program is designed to make women aware of the tremendous benefits that a macrobiotic way of life can offer for preventing and relieving diseases and awakening their own healing abilities.

(When arriving for this study week, we will give you a list of subjects, from which you can mark your interests).

Do-in early morning exercises
To start the day fresh and energetic you might like to attend the early morning program, before breakfast.

This program will be devoted to a clear, practical explanation of the Macrobiotic way of life and food patterns, with an accent on your own personal experiences and health questions. There will be time for questions and answers for subjects such as relationships, family and career. Some exercises will be given to release stress.

Cooking classes
Daily cooking classes will show you how to prepare everyday meals that are balanced and delicious, as well as how to create medicinal dishes and drinks. Since women today often have little time to balance cooking with their busy lifestyles, the classes will include tips and suggestions on how to prepare an appealing meal quickly and without stress. These sessions will include time for your personal questions on health and beauty.

For more culinary experience, go to the Art of Cooking School.

You can sign up for a personal macrobiotic dietary and lifestyle consultation with Wieke or Adelbert Nelissen. Please reserve your session in advance. Consultations will be held (preferably) not during classes.

All classes are given in English.
