Dr. Will Tuttle is an award-winning speaker, educator, author, and musician. A vegan since 1980, his writings, music, and presentations focus on compassion, creativity, intuition, and the intersectionality of social justice, animal liberation, and environmental, health, spiritual, and peace issues.
On this website, you can find out more about Dr. Tuttle’s book, The World Peace Diet, about his writings and teachings promoting compassion and justice for nonhuman animals, and there are also links to his original piano music, his seminars and retreats on developing intuition, altruism, and meditative equanimity, and about the individualized music and art portraits he does with his spouse Madeleine.
The World Peace Diet 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. Dr. Tuttle offers lecture presentations, workshops, and trainings internationally on The World Peace Diet, veganism, spirituality, effective activism, meditation, and intuition development.

We can argue that animals are largely unconscious, decreeing that because animals seem to lack the complex language that allows them to formulate thoughts in words as we do, their experience of suffering must therefore be less significant or intense for them.
This same thinking, however, could be used to justify harming human infants and senile elderly people. If anything, beings who lack the ability to analyze their circumstances may suffer at our hands more intensely than we would because they are unable to put the distance of internal dialogue between themselves and their suffering.
Prayer Circle for Today
Today let us send our prayers and love to all aquatic animals.
May compassion and love reign over all the earth for all the water beings living in the seas, lakes, and rivers. Dear fish, whales, dolphins, crabs, lobsters, starfish, jellyfish, shrimp, coral, and all the other amazing beings who make the waters of earth their home.
Your homes and your very lives are being devastated by huge fishing fleets, by trash, oil, sewage, runoff, and other poisons dumped into your waters, by cutting off your fins, and by capturing you and your loved ones for aquariums and the pet trade.
Together, we bear witness to your suffering, take action to end it permanently, and send out an energy field of love and compassion to comfort you and to transform the hearts and souls of those who support this violent oppression.
Our love is all around you. Compassion encircles the earth for each of you and for all beings.
