Innovative education for the health and well-being of all

Innovative education for the health and well-being of all


We live at an exciting moment in history-
 an age of CONTRASTING trends

On the one hand, disharmony, fragmentation and malaise appear widespread creating ripples of suffering that impact us psychologically, environmentally, socially and spiritually.  On the other hand, we are increasingly recognizing our interconnectedness with each other, our environment and future generations. 

The goals of Fortunate Blessings Foundation (FBF) are aligned with this unifying trend toward wholeness and connection.  While the Foundation's initiatives vary widely, they are all founded on the conviction that what we commonly experience as "inner" and "outer" worlds are really one.  Most fruitful progress requires engagement from multiple perspectives; moreover, the more approaches we take as a connected collective to build a structure, the stronger it becomes. With this holistic model as a base, for more than 35 years FBF has offered a variety of seminars, workshops and individual services in the field of macrobiotic education, integrative medicine, natural alternative health approaches, end-of-life counseling and support, mind-body approaches to stress, distress and trauma relief, personal transformation and sustainable ecological design practices.  In a new era, through innovative education and community collaboration, we continue to promote and develop these four core initiatives, each of which encompasses multiple components:

Diet & Health


Health is not the absence of disease; rather it is a strong connection to our bodies and minds and how best to care for them to achieve the dreams we set forth.

Modern medical systems are straining under the pressure the demands from those facing life threatening illnesses and antiquated system of impersonal reductionism.  Without an integrative, holistic approach, powerful human potential and individual needs are totally ignored.  As society shifts its focus to newer models of health care, mountains of conflicting information about how to approach health and sickness can leave people confused and frustrated rather than empowered and revitalized.

In many hospitals and healthcare settings, in spite of the presence of compassionate and caring personnel, seriously ill and dying patients are often left with unmet needs.  Let us give more attention to our relationship with the environment and the quality of our inner life at this delicate time.

Our communities are being impacted by weather-related and human-made traumatic events with increasing frequency.  After experiencing a traumatic event, 1 out of 6 children will develop PTSD.  First responders and caregivers are overwhelmed with their own secondary trauma, and most are still following traditional practices of verbal and cognitive psychological first aid, which often prove insufficient with children.

As global climate change is a pressing reality, building and supporting creative alternatives for ecologically sound and energetically vibrant spaces is critical and necessary.

The focus of this initiative is innovative community and home design that balances maximum well-being of inhabitants with minimum environmental impact.  It is our belief that a sustainably designed structure should aid its dwellers in integrating their inner and outer realities; to this end, we support stress-reducing interior design and landscaping, energy-efficient and renewable energy technologies, and, ultimately, sustainable economies, organic agriculture, and ecological conservation.  Aligned with this mission is to integrate new advances in sustainable design methods and technology to minimize our footprint wherever possible.
