Student Comments after the BASIC & ADVANCED WHOLE FOODS / MACROBIOTIC COOKING COURSES
Cooking with Sahaja is such an eye-opening, fun-filled, nurturing experience. Sahaja creates such a peaceful, calming environment to be in, and her amazing knowledge of foods is just what I was looking for. I found learning how to cook with whole foods, opened a new level of life-giving energy for me. Sahaja has shown me how easy it is to get back to basics, and how good healthy organic food can make me feel. I would recommend this cooking class to anyone and everyone, regardless what life path you are living, it is an investment to good living, and I know you will not regret it!

Words are unable to describe how grateful I am for the wonderful cooking classes over the past 6 weeks - I have learned more than I could ever have imagined and had a great time as well! I have given a copy of the recipes to my mother and sister in Adelaide & Sydney and they can't stop thanking me.

This is what I learned from the last cooking course. 1. Healthy food doesn't have to be boring or bland. 2.Simple, easy, tasty and nutritional recipes. 3.Fun sharing with likeminded people. 4. Lots of interesting cooking tips along the way that you don't get from just reading a recipe book. 5. You feel so nourished and have more energy when you start to introduce new eating habits from the macrobiotic and whole foods way of eating. 6. Clearer understanding of beans, pulses and legumes. I absolutely loved attending the classes and looked forward to them each week, and as a consequence I couldn't NOT attend the Advanced Course.

I am really keen to learn as much as possible about healing with macrobiotics and I find it very easy to relate to this way of living as it just seems so logical. I have tried lots of different diets and treatments over the years, but I seem to connect with this really well and have really enjoyed cooking the food and the courses. I just learned so much.

Wanted to thank you for the experience and learning of your cooking classes. This way of eating/cooking is one of the essential things that was missing from my life. The one aspect of breadmaking seems like a whole new dimension of possibilities and learning. Thank-you for helping to open up these neglected places.

The support of working in a group has been extremely helpful/encouraging. The recipes and ideas have been fantastic - the broad range of food has left no room for boredom. Overall, the course has given me the inspiration to stick to my truth and follow the needs of my body rather then the cravings of my mind.

The sharing of experiences has been really impactful and memorable and humbling.
Breeda, new mother and yoga teacher
What did I benefit from? Helpful to hear other people's experience. The recipes are easy to follow. A shopping list, theory on energy, yin/yang, acid/alkaline and practical cooking experience.

There is no pressure to conform. I am allowed to go at my own pace. At first I was worried I wasn't doing it all 100%. Now, I embrace the fact I am doing it in my own way and my own time. These kinds of changes are more lasting and I now feel as though macrobiotic food is part of my life.
Melita, massage therapist
Really enjoying the meals and being comforted by the fact that macro/vegan can really taste good, if not better than traditional meals....Thank you for introducing happiness back into my life.

The encouragement from others was a benefit to stick at it and lose weight. I enjoyed the aspect of sharing - cooking and eating together with people who have similar ideas about diet.

I found the wide range and yummy food made me excited to come back each week and gain more confidence in exploring different foods.
