The World Peace Diet: Creating a Culture of Peace – Online

“The revolution that is demanded by our yearning for peace, freedom, and happiness must provide a new foundation for our culture, moving it away from its herding values of oppression and disconnectedness toward the post-herding values of respect, kindness, equality, sensitivity, and connectedness. Above all, this revolution must change our relationship to our meals—our most practiced rituals—and to our food, our most powerful inner and outer symbol.”~ Dr. Will Tuttle, The World Peace Diet

  • Do you feel called to help create a positive future for our children and the world?
  • Are you concerned about our culture’s mistreatment of people, animals, and the Earth?
  • Do you long to untangle and understand the hidden roots of the dilemmas we face as individuals and society?
  • Do you aspire to develop skills to embody, share, and teach healthy and compassionate lifestyles that bring joy and purpose?

Drawing on the wisdom in the World Peace Diet written by Dr. Will Tuttle, you will discover answers and effective responses to these questions. Shantree will share the tools and insights needed to understand veganism as a spiritual, cultural, physical and transformational path of awakening. A path that supports your health and the health of our planet. Learn how to effectively incorporate this understanding into your community, friends, and family.

Lecture presentations, interactive exercises, guided meditations, group discussions and Q & A take you deeply into the teachings of The World Peace Diet. Lively discussions, tasty vegan treats and a supportive environment open the practical dimensions of vegan living. Recommended that each person has a copy of the book to use as a study guide.

“Until we are willing and able to make the connections between what we are eating and what was required to get it on our plate, and how it affects us to buy, serve, and eat it, we will be unable to make the connections that will allow us to live wisely and harmoniously on this earth. When we cannot make connections, we cannot understand, and we are less free, less intelligent, less loving, and less happy.” ~ Dr. Will Tuttle

Shifting the Paradigm Towards a Gift Economy

The magic of the gift system is that the gift is voluntary, not part of a contract. The gift binds the recipient to the giver and both of them to the community.

Each series’s price allows each participant to decide for themselves what tuition amount feels right, clear, and fair, reflecting their financial condition and their feeling of value and gratitude. In this regard, I am applying a fundamental principle of gift — one does not specify what the return gift shall be.

You may choose to pay what a typical online webinar program of this level of quality costs, or you may want more. I cannot put a number value on it. That is not because I don’t think it is valuable. I don’t know what the value will be, especially given the vast diversity of financial means out there.

Therefore, I am offering each of these series as a gift, trusting participants’ generosity to support the Centre in developing and sustaining in-depth learning journeys like this one. I trust your judgement about what represents a commitment on your part and respect your financial situation.

Pre-Registration is required by October 1st.
