Classes and Workshops with Warren:

Taking Your Health to the Next Level
This empowering class will cover common mistakes that people make when practicing macrobiotics that keep them "stuck". Warren will offer practical advice on how to improve health and fine tune the practice, discussing key points that people who practice macrobiotics successfully have in common.

Overeating: How and Why to Eat Less
One of the most challenging lifestyle habits we commonly share is overeating. In this inspiring class you'll learn how overeating truly undermines an otherwise wonderful macrobiotic practice and our health. You'll get insights into why so many of us overeat, and more importantly, how to break this pattern once and for all. Warren will discuss the proper way to eat and the remarkable health benefits gained by simply chewing well. You'll have the opportunity to practice chewing during this class.

Understanding Cravings and Addictions
Learn how to see cravings as your friend, and understand how cravings can help you find balance and satisfaction day-to-day. In this class, you will discover what many of your cravings mean, and how to satisfy them in a gentle way. Food addictions can be very powerful, controlling our lives. Warren will discuss how to break free from many food addictions, including sugar, chips, baked flour products, excess oil, and more.

Achieving Balance in Your Life
Most people would agree that to be "balanced" is a good thing and certainly desirable. But what does it actually mean to be balanced? Where does it come from? Why does it seem so hard to maintain? These questions and others will be the theme of this timely lecture. Certainly a must if we are to create and maintain our health in modern times.

What do Yin and Yang Have to do With Me?
The answer is everything! When a person is new to macrobiotics it is not as essential to know yin and yang. However, gaining understanding of this principle and applying it in daily life can greatly help a person achieve their goals and dreams. In this class, Warren will lead a lively, interactive discussion on how yin and yang can be applied on a daily basis to create the life you want.

The Spirit of Macrobiotics
Macrobiotics is often referred to as the "great" life or "big" life. Most people new to macrobiotics think that it is all about the food. However, food is only a small part of macrobiotics. In this class you'll discover the larger perspective. When people understand the principles of macrobiotics they are more likely to embrace macrobiotics as a lifestyle rather than a temporary diet to be used to recover ones health.
