Details

Dr. Will Tuttle, acclaimed speaker, musician, educator, and author, has lectured and performed widely throughout North America and Europe. His book The World Peace Diet has been called one of the most important books of the 21st century: the foundation of a new society based on the truth of the interconnectedness of all life. It is the first book to make explicit the invisible connections between our meals and our broad range of problems - psychological, social, and spiritual, as well as health and environmental. It offers powerful ways we can all experience healing and peace and contribute to a positive transformation of human consciousness.

"Use The World Peace Diet as a guide to empower yourselves and others in making dietary choices that are powerful beyond what you can possibly imagine." - Julia Butterfly Hill, environmental activist and founder, Circle Of Life Foundation

"The World Peace Diet is one of the most provocative books I’ve ever read. This is a deep book, aglow with insights that penetrate and expose the complacency of a culture that has strayed painfully far from compassion." - John Robbins, noted author

"Thought-provoking and recommended." - Library Journal

"Will Tuttle brings a priceless perspective - not only to the planetary crisis confronting us all, but also to powerful ways we each can affect it. This book is radiant with his learning and his compassion." - Dr. Joanna Macy, author, Coming Back To Life

"I am grateful for this powerful and cogent book. It has stretched my thinking (and heart) about animals, compassion, and our society." - John Mackey, founder, Whole Foods, Inc.

The lecture will follow by Q&A session. In the end of the event Dr. Tuttle will be also available for book signing. Bring your book if you have one or it will be available for a purchase after the lecture.
