MacroMuse was founded by Michael Rossoff as a local newsletter for the Washington, D.C. macrobiotic community, in the Fall of 1981. This was a time of increasing public awareness about many “alternative” healing approaches. Macrobiotics sprang forth into national prominence with the publication of Anthony Satillaro’s book, “Recalled By Life,” which was later condensed into a feature article in Life magazine.
After a year of producing a local newsletter, Michael was inspired to reach a larger audience. So began the seventh issue of MacroMuse, the first of 26 issues with color covers and full-scale magazine format.
Beginning with a small readership in 1982, this “homespun” magazine quickly grew to over 5,000 subscribers, with an additional 7,000 copies sold on newsstands around America. During the next six years a small staff evolved; the professional quality and reputation of the magazine also grew.
The purpose of MacroMuse was to inform and educate the broad public about core concepts of the macrobiotic approach to healthy living. It was positive and encouraging. Another goal was to explore beyond the “standards” of macrobiotic limits — to probe and reflect, to learn and grow. This was a welcome cutting-edge for some readers and sometimes too radical for others. A regular column called “Forum” became the arena for this exploration and communication. There were other regular columns, too. “Getting Started With Macrobiotics,” “Hearthbeat” and “Book Reviews.”
Many fine people contributed articles, art, ideas and criticisms. Among the authors were Tom Monte, John and Jan Belleme, Herman Aihara, Rebecca Theurer Wood, Ron Kotzsch, Lenny Jacobs, Mark N. Mead and many others.
