People who learn and use these “secrets” are shining examples of the human potential, and leaders in all they do.
This program is amazing! It combines wonderful knowledge on healing foods with visual diagnostic skills, and you learn how to apply them for many health issues. Along with the great classes, the daily exercise routines and DELICIOUS meals have brought unexpected benefits – in only one month I’ve lost 15 lbs and the pain and swelling of arthritis in my hands is almost gone! I’m staying on for the next two months and looking forward to learning more, and reaping more personal benefits.” Christine Kay, England
How the program is structured:
The foundational part of the course is offered in 3 “Levels” that are each 4 weeks (one month) long. Attending Levels 1, 2 and 3 takes 12 weeks (three months) total.
Students may attend the program in the time frame of their choice, from week-long Level “Modules” to one or more full month-long Levels. The Levels and modules must be taken in consecutive order.
Advanced week-long Level 4 sessions are available to students after the successful completion of Level 3. Level 4 is offered three times per year in week long sessions following each Level 3, and includes 6 unique week long sessions of study. The six sessions of Level 4 take a minimum of two years to complete.
After completing Level 3, we developed a business cooking privately for individuals, which has brought us all over the world. It has been a fun, rewarding, and stimulating career.” Jessica Porter (author of “The Hip Chick’s Guide to Macrobiotics”) and Howard Wallen
Levels start four times per year as follows:
Winter session – starting in January
Spring session – starting in April
Summer Session (2 weeks only) – July or August (see calendar)
Fall Session – starting in September

FIVE CORE SUBJECTS:
Each core subject is related to the others, providing you with a wealth of comprehensive knowledge in macrobiotic principles and practice. The hands-on experience you receive deepens your understanding and advances your skills. The opportunity to fully live a macrobiotic lifestyle while you are in the course provides further personal benefits.
While taking the Levels, I discovered so much about myself. I am also so thankful to have met wonderful people from all over the world. I learned that macrobiotics is not about restriction or focusing on what you can’t have – it’s about finding balance in all aspects of your life, and finding peace within yourself. Most importantly, I feel better now than I ever did growing up.”

For participants from other countries needing U.S. visas:
As Kushi Institute is not licensed as a school by the State of Massachusetts, we do not have the appropriate government school identification numbers necessary for the student visa application form, and therefore you are not eligible to apply for a student visa to attend our programs. Also, for the reason of not yet being licensed as a school, certificates of completion and graduation are not considered “academic” certificates by the United States school board or government.
Therefore, according to U.S. governmental customs and immigration laws, all Kushi Institute program participants needing U.S. visas must obtain the standard 90 day tourist visa.
It is typical for our programs to have a large percentage of participants from other countries, and unusual for anyone registered for the program to have difficulties obtaining a tourist visa. Upon registration we send foreign participants a letter detailing your registration in the program and explaining why the tourist visa is the applicable documentation.
If you have any questions on obtaining U.S. visas please contact us!
