If you are in Austin Texas on Friday December 5th you should stop by Casa de Luz, Center for Integral Studies to hear Dr. Will Tuttle give his lecture and presentation on The World Peace Diet from 7:00 - 9:00 pm.
And if you are unfamiliar with the Casa de Luz, you are in a special time. The vision is this:
The philosophy of how to live a great life (Macrobiotics) is the
founding idea for Casa de Luz. This is an all encompassing philosophy,
which includes all methods of supporting health and freedom. Our
mission is to offer a sacred space for those that want to bring their
disciplines to share with the community. Casa de Luz
is open to all. Our reason for being is to practice and live in
integrity. We believe that living with integrity includes practicing,
learning, teaching, and sharing actions and philosophies to develop
conscious living and cognition. It also takes commitment, authenticity,
appreciation and openness to being wrong. The search of improvement is
necessary, least we become arrogant and dogmatic. This is a place that
is ever changing and colored by the practices that people bring to
In order to fulfill its complete destiny, Casa de Luz will create a full spectrum village which will be designed to include smart living modalities. Humanity's recent industrialized development has created conveniences that have proven to be detrimental to the overall health of all things on earth. The automobile, while wonderful, has proven to destroy well being. Industrialized foods have been made tasty, attractive and cheap, yet not only do they lack nourishment, but they also cause illness. By design, a village can support well being for all.
Besides being the gathering place for various forms of study including yoga, cooking classes, tai chi etc... the Casa de Luz kitchen prepares the most delicious foods all based on the macrobiotic regimen served buffet style in a communal style of seating. Every time I go there, I meet someone so interesting and on the brightest path of lucid living. It's wonderful. I will be meeting with Will before the event to capture some new video footage for his website and getting some details about his experience on th 13 month full time book tour in his solar powered RV across the country which is nearing completion. As you can tell, he is one hard working, compassionate man planting peace daily and it has been great working with he and his wife Madeleine to help grow their online presence.
If you are unable to attend this event make sure you join the World Peace Diet Network, Read the Book, or follow Will's blog. Getting to know his mission and understanding his life work will definitely strike some harmonious chords in you and make you healthier too. Inside and Out. Really.
Oh and when you come to town call me or DM me on Twitter and we will visit Casa de Luz together :)
