Receive an "outside in” view of your personality that will be fascinating, eye-opening and give you a deeper knowledge of yourself. Improve your communication with your family, friends, clients, co-workers, and even your own self by attending SHI's Advanced Training Seminar: "9 Star Ki for Personal Insight, Relationships & Communication" coming up August 16th & 17th, 10 AM - 5 PM.

Imagine improved relationships with those you love, care about and with whom you work every day, simply by having an extra depth of insight. How much more peaceful and joyous would your life be after only one week of more harmonious communications? A month? A heavenly year?

In just a few hours, SHI will provide you with the keys to these insights by showing you this type of Oriental Astrology, based on the same principles as Oriental medicine and diagnosis. You will create a personal comprehensive chart of your basic nature, driving forces and tendencies. With this comprehensive understanding of your personality, nature and potential, you will have the ability to immediately improve communications with your friends, loved ones and colleagues. As a plus, if you are a business owner, you will gain greater insight into the nature of your clients, so that you can provide them with more accurate and helpful guidance.

Classes on both days begin at 10 AM and end at 5 PM. Lunches will be provided both days. Register now for one of these valuable sessions August 16th & 17th before they fill — they will be the only offerings this year for this course!

Macrobiotics is not a diet. Macrobiotics is an orderly approach to diet and lifestyle. Through principles of harmony, balance and change we continually learn how to make healthier choices in our eating habits, diet, activity and lifestyle. We plan our meals around grains, vegetables, soups and a variety of other plant based foods.

Macrobiotics is also based on the understanding that spiritual health, the development of endless appreciation for all of life, leads to mental, emotional and physical health. The healthy choices we each make on a daily basis also benefit society and the environment.

The Strengthening Health Institute (SHI) was founded in 1997, by Denny Waxman, to teach others how to create lasting health and how to discover and live fully their life's dream. In 2002, SHI was incorporated as a not-for-profit school with a mission to:

• Empower people to make their own wise choices for life and health.
• Create the model for macrobiotic education for the present and future and to move macrobiotics into the mainstream.
• Demystify and simplify macrobiotics to allow access to a much larger number of people
