Fisher King Center Projects
The Fisher King's cleansing project began, as it continues to this day, with a handful of friends on a quest to discover how human beings sustain themselves biologically from the topsoil to the kitchen with a focus on nutrition and detoxification. Throughout their process of enquiry the team has given expression to their findings through various projects outlined below:
The Fisher King Centre - Detox Retreat in Glastonbury
The idea to create a detoxification clinic in Glastonbury was born when the Chairman of the International Colonic Association, Katherine Monbiot contacted me to say that she wanted to work with me after having read a health magazine article about what we are doing. After having put our heads together we came up with the six-day residential ‘Cleansing for Change’ programme based on augmented Dr. Bernard Jensen protocols.
Since its inception The Fisher King center has attracted both a national and international clientèle comprising, doctors, nurses, lawyers, therapists, teachers, entrepreneurs, writers, actors, composers, models, life coaches and those whose lives are in transition, and have come to realise that change is preceeded by a qualitivate overhaul of their mental, emotional and physical selves.
I can honestly say I truly love my work, in the course of which I am often humbled and awed by my client's jaw dropping stories of the triumph of the human spirit over adversity.
I feel privileged to have been invited in to the inner lives of many of my clients who continue to inspire me.
Michael (Director of Fisher King Center)
Set up an organic garden exploring non-animal, bio-dynamic food production
Michael and Ernst Friedle published a guide to the preservation, storage and assimilation of vitamins and minerals.
Michael and Fiona Bruce opened the first vegan organic restaurant, nominated for Vegetarian Restaurant of the Year. Contracted for large scale location catering events. Expanded to manufacturing of healthy convenience foods for national distribution run by Miranda Bruce.
Michael undertakes research and development into the extraction of leaf proteins in partnership with Michael Cole a Devon farmer and a charity operating in the Third World. This food, derived from indigenous green matter, has a nutritional profile far exceeding that of meat, fish, eggs, beans or milk. This technology is being used today in Third World pilot schemes as a proven malnutrition solution. The project attracted national TV and radio coverage on the News, the BBC Food programme and the Natural History programme as well as gaining approval in an independent report funded by the Department of Trade and Industry.
Miranda Bruce designs the National Vocational Qualification (NVQ) for non-animal and special diet cuisine in conjunction with the Hotel Catering Training Board. Since then Fiona Bruce has trained numerous individuals, professional chefs and organisations such as the Bristol Cancer Self Help Centre.
Contracted by Liverpool City Council to raise the nutritional status of children in care and secure units.
