I've been asked to spread the word about a special event coming up this Saturday in Pennsylvania. Please note, it is a vegan event, not a raw food event (and I am not the organizer). Will Tuttle, the featured speaker, is doing wonderful work to bring awareness to the impact our diet has on our consciousness.
Here are the details. If you need more info, please respond to Lisa Levinson, whose contact info is at the bottom of this email.
Vegan Spirituality and Public Eye: Artists for Animals present our 4th Annual Vegan Spirituality Retreat on the East Coast, “Exploring Veganism as a Spiritual Practice.” We welcome World Peace Diet author Dr. Will Tuttle as our featured speaker. Enjoy group discussions, guided meditations, yoga classes with vegan yogis Derek Goodwin and Ximena Milagros Savitch, a delicious vegan lunch catered by The Nile Café, a nature walk, and an Animal Blessing with percussionist Lonnie Davis. Childcare is provided. Friendly companion animals are welcome at the Retreat and Blessing Ceremony.
Honor your companion animals and animals around the world through drumming and dancing in nature! Bring companion animals, a photo, or your own animal spirit! Everyone is invited to drum and dance in the Ceremony, which offers opportunities to celebrate animal companions, honor those that have died, empathize with animals suffering around the world, and create a vision of harmony between humans and other animals. Please bring leashes or carriers for your animal companions. You’re welcome to bring a vegan/synthetic drum! The Ceremony is free and open to the public.
