  William Tara (Also known as Bill Tara) - BIOGRAPHY
For over forty years Bill Tara has been at the forefront of macrobiotic education, developing businesses, educational projects, and teaching in over 20 countries. He has consistently focused his work on adapting the macrobiotic philosophy to the needs of modern life and culture. His approach is dynamic, simple and comprehensive, it is untroubled by

esoteric jargon and rich with humor. Bill’s teaching addresses the huge gap in our social understanding of how to create health in the individual and in society as a whole.

His newest book, “Natural Body, Natural Mind” is now available at www.amazon.com or www.xlibris.com. An excerpt can be accessed on this site.

“Macrobiotics reflects a deep wisdom found in traditional ways of life throughout the world. This wisdom describes a way of being that is in alignment with the rhythms of nature and has much to teach us as we face the challenges of our times. When sensibly applied, the core principles of macrobiotic thinking and action can provide valuable lessons to us in the creation of self-generated healing, the development of enlightened health care and the promise of a healthy human ecology. “
