Lectures, Classes and Concerts for the 2019 Cruise

Lecture: Healing Our World - A Deeper Look at Food
What are the cultural messages that we consume with our daily meals, and what kind of transformation can we help create when we’re more conscious about our food choices? How do plant-based foods heal us and our world in unrecognized ways? Join Dr. Tuttle in exploring the hidden consequences of animal agriculture. This presentation illuminates the cultural and health impacts of our food system as the primary organizing and compelling force in our world, and provides some essential keys to thriving in our lives and being more effective advocates for peace, justice and healing.

Lecture: Heart Teachings on the Dharma Path
The essence of spiritual practice is awakening to our original wisdom, beyond the confining delusions of our cultural conditioning. The foundation of this awakening is practicing mindfulness and compassion. Join author Will Tuttle, a former Zen monk and Buddhist practitioner for over 40 years, in a provocative and insightful exploration into the connections between spiritual practice and our daily lives, focusing especially on conscious eating. Building on his discussion in The World Peace Diet of Buddhist practice and universal spiritual teachings, Dr. Tuttle will be going in greater depth into these ancient teachings that clarify our understanding and positively transform our lives.
