Will Tuttle, author of the book “The World Peace Diet: Eating for Spiritual Health and Social Harmony,” will lecture at Morningside College from 6 to 7 p.m. on Thursday, October 30, in the Lincoln Center’s UPS Auditorium, 3627 Peters Avenue. The lecture is free and open to the public.
In his book, Tuttle presents the hypothesis that choices we make about food are leading to environmental degradation, human health problems and cruelty to animals. Tuttle, an animal rights and peace activist and a vegan, has delivered hundreds of lectures and seminars throughout North America at universities, colleges, churches, vegetarian societies and environmental organizations.
Tuttle received his master’s degree in humanities from San Francisco State University and his doctorate in the philosophy of education from the University of California. A professional pianist and teacher, he also trained in Korea as a Zen Buddhist monk and has worked extensively in Tai Chi, yoga, massage, and dance and movement. He lives in Healdsburg, California.
Tuttle’s lecture at Morningside is sponsored by the college’s Committee for Environmental Sustainability.
