Featured Tranquilista:
In addition to creating IHE’s M.Ed., M.A., and graduate certificate programs and leading IHE’s workshops, Zoe Weil is the author of Nautilus Silver Medal winner, Most Good, Least Harm: The Simple Principle for a Better World and a Meaningful Life (2009), The Power and Promise of Humane Education (2004), and Above All, Be Kind: Raising a Humane Child in Challenging Times (2003). She has also written books for young people, including Moonbeam Gold Medal winner, Claude and Medea: The Hellburn Dogs (2007), about 12-year-old activists inspired by an eccentric substitute teacher to right wrongs where they find them, and So, You Love Animals: An Action-Packed, Fun-Filled Book to Help Kids Help Animals (2004). She has written numerous articles on humane education and humane living and has appeared frequently on radio and television. She has also given an acclaimed TEDx talk, “The World Becomes What You Teach.”

Zoe speaks regularly at universities, conferences, schools, churches, and in communities around the United States and Canada and overseas. She has also served as a consultant on humane education to people and organizations around the world. In 2012 Zoe debuted her 1-woman show, “My Ongoing Problems with Kindness: Confessions of MOGO Girl,” and now brings humane education issues to communities through an entertaining format.

In 2010, Zoe was inducted into the Animal Rights Hall of Fame, and in 2012 she was honored with an award from the Women in Environmental Leadership Program (WE Lead) at Unity College.
Zoe received a Master’s in Theological Studies from Harvard Divinity School (1988) and a Master’s in English Literature from the University of Pennsylvania (1983). She is certified in Psychosynthesis counseling, a form of psychotherapy which relies upon the intrinsic power of each person’s imagination to promote growth, creativity, health, and transformation.

Zoe lives with her husband, teenage son, and several rescued animals at the Institute for Humane Education in Surry, Maine.
