Lectures, Workshops, and Classes for the 2013 Cruise
Lecture 1: Creating a New Culture of Peace
Dr. Will Tuttle will present the main ideas in his groundbreaking best-seller, The World Peace Diet. It 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. It is the first book to make explicit the invisible connections between our meals and our broad range of problems—psychological, cultural, and spiritual, as well as health and environmental. Dr. Tuttle offers powerful ways of understanding our culture, our shared history, and ourselves that lead to healing and peace and contribute to a positive transformation of human consciousness.
Lecture 2: The Metaphysics of Food
This presentation will explore the healing power of food and the importance of our attitudes while preparing and eating food, focusing on the metaphysical dimensions of food, eating, agriculture, and food production. Some of the ideas presented and discussed will be from the chapter "The Metaphysics of Food" from Dr. Tuttle's book, The World Peace Diet. We will look at the vibrational nature of reality as revealed through modern physics and ancient wisdom traditions, and explore the vibrational implications of our food choices. We will also consider food and nourishment as vibratory in the form of air, water, nature, music, art, media, relationship, and spiritual experience.
Lecture 3: The Land of Milk and Honey: Heaven or Hell?
Looking into the ramifications of dairy, honey, and egg production is an adventure of biblical proportions. Dr. Tuttle will investigate and discuss not just the surprising practices in these industries, and their effects on our physical, psychological, cultural, and environmental health, but the mythologies and stories that fuel the consumption of these products on such a massive scale.
Workshop: The Healing Power of Music
In this presentation, participants will have the opportunity to experience the power of music to reveal insights and provide healing energy when their experience is deepened with meditation and imagery techniques. Following a brief overview of sound, music, and the physics of vibration as it relates to the human physical, emotional, and mental faculties, Dr. Tuttle will share methods for deepening their experience of music.
