Macrobiotic Hawaii and Great Life Cuisine are thrilled to bring you a very special weekend seminar with Deco Nakajima from Brown's Field in Japan.

Deco Nakajima is founder of the Rice Terrace Cafe and Brown's Field, a macrobiotic farm, restaurant, lifestyle center, and spa retreat. She is a mother of five children and a teacher at the Kushi Macrobiotic Academy in Tokyo. She has published five books including the highly popular bilingual cookbooks, Macrobiotic Breads and Sweets from Deco's Kitchen and The Rice Terrace Cafe Cookbook.

Brown's Field is an organic farm based in Boso peninsula in Japan. Run by macrobiotic cook and essayist Deco Nakajima and her husband, photojournalist Everett Brown, this oasis host events related to permaculture, sustainable living, macrobiotic food, and healthy living in general.

All events will be bilingual in Japanese and English.

Living "Shindo Fuji"

Deco will discuss her experience of building a sustainable eco-village, including organic farming, based on the Japanese tradition "shindo fuji" (living in touch with the land) in conjunction with her local community. Now in its seventh year, Brown's Field has become a center of sustainable living where people from around the world come to experience sleeping in yurts and tree-houses, participate in organic gardening, and feel nourished by the delicious food grown on the farm which is then prepared in the Rice Terrace Cafe.

During this session, Deco shares aspects of living at Brown's Field including growing grains and beans, and making miso, shoyu and other fermented foods. She also shares her most important message "living with a heartfelt attitude towards life."
