In the beginning of 2011, I attended Marlene and Bill’s Ultimate Health Experience course which inspired me to undertake the Macrobiotic Health Coach Programme. Both programmes were amazing experiences. The knowledge given regarding the impact of food and nutrition was phenomenal. For the first time in my life, I actually understand WHY the body needs the food it needs. And how we can stabilise and even reverse disease with diet and exercise alone! Their invaluable experience and vast knowledge were shared openly and abundantly. The help and support each of us participating received relating to specific health issues was beautifully delivered with love and humour. I would recommend Marlene and Bill to anyone who cares about well-being in any form, from learning to eat a balanced diet (whilst losing weight at the same time), detoxing and strengthening your body, to more severe health problems. My heartfelt thanks, I feel empowered and immensely inspired to go out and support others to learn about the healing properties of a plant-based whole food diet.With enormous love and respect to you both,

The Macrobiotic Health Coach Course with Marlene and Bill was one of the best educational experiences of my life. As a musician and classical piano teacher, I was looking for an educational course not only for myself and family but to start teaching and sharing this way of life with many others. I am so happy I made the commitment to travel from the other side of the world to study with Marlene and Bill. The course content was amazing, so relevant, useful and extremely generous. I am so grateful for everything that I received during this two-week programme, Bill and Marlene literally share their life’s work with their students. There is no doubt that this experience with them will fundamentally influence the health coaching I will proceed to offer not only myself but to all my clients. I can’t wait to get started teaching. Marlene, your food is absolutely delicious; every meal we had was my ‘new’ favourite! With love and gratitude,

There is a saying which goes something like “if you give a man a fish, you feed the man, if you teach a man to fish you feed the village” – and so with Marlene and Bill’s courses – you are taught so much information, you, in turn, can teach the world about food and its impact on your health, about living in harmony with the seasons and it’s a very exciting place to be – both are so generous with their knowledge – not a question goes unanswered and you will literally leave a different person … oh and you’ll have a real laugh doing the course which I found a massive bonus. Bill and Marlene are truly gifted teachers and share their work with such an incredible light-heartedness.

“If you want to turn your life around Marlene and Bill Tara are the people to help you achieve that. Having enrolled on their Macrobiotic Health Coaching course in Scotland I’m already beginning to feel like a new woman. The course is an intensive insight into how and why a plant based diet works. More importantly, Bill and Marlene work seamlessly together to teach how to apply this knowledge to your daily life. With afternoons spent cooking we were taught how to prepare over 40 dishes and spent the mornings learning about the theory of why certain foods go with others and the impact on our bodies. With lots of great meditation and chi ball to keep the muscles active, you have a perfect balance of a break, a learning experience and the possibility of changing your life.” As well as creating a fantastic business.

I have studied and practised macrobiotics in the U.S. and abroad for over 6 years. It was only after travelling to Scotland and taking the macrobiotic coaching course did the “Macro Way” finally come into focus for me. I gained a greater understanding of macrobiotics I was not able to achieve before now. Bill and Marlene’s approach was fresh, modern, easy and informal…simplifying and clarifying….cutting to the core…truly lifting the fog on the essence of macrobiotics. Their teachings gave me the structure, the tools and support I needed to be able to share the macro message with friends and family in a more “user-friendly” way. I will return to my coaching clients and hopefully cultivate new ones, with more confidence, enthusiasm, renewed energy, better insight and fabulous cooking skills. Thank you, Bill and Marlene…I am forever changed. Cheers for now…Sam

Dearest Marlene & Bill I consider myself lucky and fortunate that I had the opportunity to meet you two wonderful souls who enriched me by your teachings. It was not just a course or a programme but a complete learning and enlightenment to see health & nutrition from both of your valuable experiences and knowledge are amazing. I really appreciate and recommend your programme worldwide. Your open-heartedness in educating and simplifying concepts of Macrobiotics will never be forgotten. I also really appreciate Bill for sharing his life experiences and his beautiful humour which made us look forward to every class and to Marlene who is just the most incredible human dynamo I have ever had the experience to meet and who I know is destined to have her own T.V. Series.
