Wholesome, inspired nourishment for the mind, body, and spirit - what better!

**Arrive between 6:30 pm (strongly recommended) and 7 pm to get seated, order dinner, and mingle. Stay as long as you like. Dr. Tuttle's talk will begin approximately 7:30 pm.**

We are so pleased to have Will Tuttle, Ph.D., deliver an inspirational talk based on his spectacular, award-winning book, The World Peace Diet - Eating for Spiritual Health and Social Harmony. He will discuss how food affects us physically, culturally, and spiritually, and how to make positive changes that promote wellness, encourage wisdom and abundance, and minimize our eco-footprints on the earth. The talk places a fundamental emphasis on a vegan way of living and will be followed by a short Q&A.

The World Peace Diet, which became a #1 Amazon best-seller in 2010, offers a compelling and liberating new understanding of our food and our culture. It 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 culture, our food, and the source of our broad range of problems—and the way to a positive transformation in our individual and collective lives. It has now been translated and published in over a dozen languages.

This event is free. (Just pay for your own dinner that you order.) Signed copies of The World Peace Diet ( will be available for purchase at a discounted price. Donations to support Dr. Tuttle's work will be accepted at the event.

Since 1991, Caravan of Dreams has served New York City with all organic, all vegan, kosher verified, and extensive live food options, plus a fully stocked bar, nightly entertainment, and occasional educational seminars and events.

Please plan to have dinner at Caravan of Dreams since they are kindly providing the space without additional charge.
