Living free from electricity, radio waves and EMF’s, etc. and communing with nature with no means of escape is an incredible experience and contrast to most of our daily lives. Eating wood fire cooked food in such a pristine environment has two unique benefits. The first is that it creates an unusually strong and deep physical and energetic alignment among the teachers, staff and participants. The second is that the environment and wood fire cooked food alkalize people’s conditions very quickly creating a positive, upbeat and helpful attitude among everyone very quickly that deepened by the day.

All together I felt that the learning was more organic and deep than is possible in other situations. I realized from being there that macrobiotic education in natural surroundings together with hearty cooking has a unique learning potential.
