Carol Adams: Inner artist
Vegetarianism is not simply an act of replacing meat with vegetables. It is an act of creativity and imagination, as every meal you conceive of another possibility of relating to other animals, oneself, and the planet.
Carol Adams celebrates that creativity in The Inner Art of Vegetarianism
and Meditations on the Inner Art of Vegetarianism
. She shows how those interested in the creative life and in spiritual practice can find sustenance in vegetarianism, while those who are vegetarians can explore spiritual practices to sustain them in their activism. These books are also wonderful primers for the creative life: suitable for everyone who values a practice to enable them to fulfill their potential and have a rich and rewarding day.
Judy Carman also celebrates the meaning of living a vegetarian life in Peace to All Beings
. This set of reflections from the world's religions and thoughts on the meaning of ahimsa
, or non-violence, is the perfect companion for all those who want to live peacefully and fully the non-violent life.
Finally, going vegan is one of the messages of Kate Lawrence's The Practical Peacemaker
. Veganism is a way to live nonviolence and spirituality every time you decide what to eat. This also happens to be the modus operandi of a healthy life, as Victoria Moran makes clear in her The Love-Powered Diet
