The Father of Veganism (Dr. Will Tuttle)
Every day we walk through the grocery store mindlessly throwing things into our grocery cart. What would it be like if we made our grocery shopping an extension of our meditation. Now, what happens if we really start thinking about where the food in that plastic wrapping came from, what it took to get to your table, and the impact it our food has our environment ? What would it be like if we cooked with more intention or got more involved with growing our own food?

About our Guest
As part of my mission to understand my culture more deeply, I studied and received an M.A. degree in Humanities at San Francisco State University, and then went on to the University of California, Berkeley, for my Ph.D. My doctoral dissertation at Berkeley focused on educating intuition and altruism in adults, and I subsequently taught a wide variety of college courses in philosophy, religion, mythology, humanities, music, literature, history, writing, and creativity. After this, I began traveling as a lecturer and concert pianist, and have now created eight CD albums of original piano music.
