Product Description

Synopsis

Food is our most intimate and telling connection both with the living natural order and with our living cultural heritage. By eating the plants and animals of our earth, we literally incorporate them. It is also through this act of eating that we partake of our culture's values and paradigms at the most primal levels. It is becoming increasingly obvious, however, that the choices we make about our food are leading to environmental degradation, enormous human health problems, and unimaginable cruelty toward our fellow creatures. Incorporating systems theory, teachings from mythology and religions, and the human sciences, The World Peace Diet presents the outlines of a more empowering understanding of our world, based on a comprehension of the far-reaching implications of our food choices and the worldview those choices reflect and mandate. The author offers a set of universal principles for all people of conscience, from any religious tradition, that they can follow to reconnect with what we are eating, what was required to get it on our plate, and what happens after it leaves our plates.

The World Peace Diet suggests how we as a species might move our consciousness forward so that we can be more free, more intelligent, more loving, and happier in the choices we make.

Will Tuttle's book The World Peace Diet, was nothing short of a transformation in consciousness. I've travelled all over the world, pushed every boundary I could, and went over the edge many times. Read many many spiritual new age books. Spent years in therapy. Trained as a therapist. Practiced yoga, meditated. All of these things were useful, were steps along the way. But discovering Will Tuttle and his work has been the transformation I always sought but never found. He has all the pieces of the puzzle. He sees the roots of oppression in our society very clearly. Explains them in a way which communicates much more than words. Listening to him, brings me into my own heart. He's so without guile. He speaks from the place I want to be. The place, I'm learning now, to be.

What he's saying, is that we as a species, become essentially messed up, by the very act of eating other animals. We are living in a disconnected, disenfranchised state. Split in our consciousness, by living a lie. Deep down, we are all kind, loving, compassionate people. But we aren't living our values. Kind people don't brutally murder other living beings unnecessarily. They don't live in such a disconnected state from nature that they destroy the very environment they depend on to survive.

Something is very wrong. Even as we pretend it isn't, and get on seeking after the illusions the adverts sell us. We live in oppressive systems, exhausted, chasing things we never find.
What we are looking for is our hearts, our integrity, and the capacity to live in loving meaningful connection to all other living beings, and the Earth herself.

But we are conditioned, programmed to be otherwise. To be as we are.

Format: Paperback
This book is remarkable in its scope and implication. Will Tuttle has brought together a thoroughly convincing argument that we really are what we eat - not just individually but collectively as a society and as a species. If you think that the slaughter of billions of animals, birds and fish used for human consumption is sustainable, morally, environmentally or spiritually then I suggest this book will make you think twice. With craft and care Will Tuttle takes us on a journey that is surprising and potentially life-changing to the conclusion that we must move rapidly away from eating flesh, dairy and eggs - if we are to survive. I say that this book is life-changing as it has changed me and what I eat is now plant based (vegan). Don't read it unless you are open minded enough to be thoroughly challenged and changed!

I read this book shortly after I decided to go vegan .The information and the facts will blow you away and it will make you rethink your food choices. Highly recommend it to anyone who is thinking about going vegan . Really worth your time.

This is a great book on the subject and thoroughly enjoyable reading experience. I read the pbk and also listened to the audio book which is narrated very well by the author. For part of the book I did feel like it was all hopeless and there could be no way to make things better as it all seemed so bleak but by the end of the book, the author had me uplifted and in a much more positive frame of mind. This book covers every aspect of what it means to eat animals/animal products, the history of why we do and the consequences of doing so.
