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.

Confronted with the problems that characterize our herding culture, we are perhaps like the metaphorical man wounded by an arrow that the Buddha discussed with his students. He said that the man would be foolish if he tried to discover who shot the arrow, why he shot it, where he was when he shot it, and so forth, before having the arrow removed and the wound treated, lest he bleed to death attempting to get his questions answered.
We, likewise, can all remove the arrow and treat the wound of eating animal foods right now. We don’t need to know the whole history. We can easily see it is cruel and that it is unnecessary; whatever people have done in the past, we are not obligated to imitate them if it is based on delusion.
Prayer Circle for Today
Prayers for the nations of insects and other small creatures.
May compassion and love reign over all the earth for all the tiny beings who live in the soil, the trees, the water, and the air, creating harmony and balance with your songs, your pollinating of flowers, your graceful flight, your mysterious transformations, and your miraculous ability to literally create soil in which new plants can take root.
Dear dragonflies, bees, wasps, butterflies, mosquitoes, moths, beetles, cicadas, crickets, spiders, ants, and all of you who suffer immeasurably at the hands of people who do not understand the miracle of who you are, who poison you, stomp on you, and destroy your homes.
You are so small, and many of us who do care about you find ourselves bringing you harm.
We ask for your forgiveness and your help and together we bear witness to your suffering, take action to permanently end it, and send out our energy field of love and compassion to comfort you and to transform the hearts and souls of those who support the violent oppression of all of you.
Our love is all around you. Compassion encircles the earth for each of you and for all beings.
