Meet our great team.
The Macrobiotic Association is a voluntary organisation made up of a group of elected directors and the membership. We represent a broad spectrum of macrobiotics and aim to be a positive, harmonious, constructive group when working with other macrobiotic organisations, teachers, schools and individuals.
Our Directors: Simon Brown, Ariel Perea Diaz, Anna Mackenzie, Marion Price, Valentina Deva Ray and Shirley Roach.
Simon is the author of Modern Day Macrobiotics and Macrobiotics For Life and a macrobiotic practitioner, macrobiotic consultant and macrobiotic teacher living in London UK.
