This is a hard question to answer in a small space! I'm a Quaker, and we look toward the divine light in each person. I believe all types of animals are persons -- all creatures are connected and each life is valuable. How do I practice this? I suppose through as much mindfulness as I can squeeze into the choices I make, which is not to say I always do what's right.
Well, Kathleen. Beyond that, hoping for a group of people who share some of my values.
Support, community, comradery...yes. There are very few people I can talk to about the moral reasons for my dietary choices. I would welcome the opportunity to do that and learn from others. Of course, I'd also just like to meet interesting people and have fun.
Let's talk about this at a meeting. I can imagine lots of interesting approaches to veganism and spirituality!
I've been a vegetarian since 1997 and a vegan since 2015.
