New Meetup: Living Raw Theater: Simply Raw - Reversing Diabetes in 30 Days

Announcing a new Meetup for Viva la Vegan!

What: Living Raw Theater: Simply Raw - Reversing Diabetes in 30 Days

When: December 20,[masked]:30 PM

Price: $10.00 per person

The Living Raw in Portland Meetup Group invites members of Viva la Vegan to attend the first of its Living Raw Theater events on Saturday, December 20th -- a presentation of Simply Raw: Reversing Diabetes in 30 Days at the home of one of its members in Lake Oswego. Living Raw Theater events are scheduled to be conducted within the living rooms of local folks, and serve as fundraisers for the Raw and Living Spirit Retreat, a local gourmet raw community experience happening August 27-30 at Camp Adams in Molalla, OR. More information about the movie and the Retreat can be found below.

This will be a raw vegan potluck event. Participation size is limited, due to the size of the living room. When you RSVP, please declare what item you will be bringing so that we can coordinate our dishes, and please give us at least 48 hours notice if you cancel -- it's a small event, there are folks who'd love to fill your vacated spot, and they need time to plan and prepare a dish.

As a fundraiser for the Raw and Living Spirit Retreat, the event participation fee is $10, to be collected at the event. I'm not using Paypal for these events, as they charge a processing fee that could be better used by the Retreat. If that poses a problem, please contact Brion and we can work something out.

Brion will publish the address of the event to the confirmed event participants. We can start gathering at 4:30pm and will begin eating at 5:00pm. The movie is 91 minutes, and we will have an additional 90 minutes for discussion afterwards and can watch some of the bonus material collected on The Ultimate Encyclopedia of the Raw Food Lifestyle.

We're looking forward to seeing you on Saturday, December 20th, and more events will be scheduled soon! If you would like to host a showing and discussion of Simply Raw, any of the Rawkathon series, or other raw-related DVDs, please contact Brion! Your living room can't wait to get raw!

From the DVD back cover: "Simply Raw chronicles six Americans with diabetes who switch to a diet consisting entirely of vegan, organic, live, raw foods in order to reverse diabetes naturally. The participants are challenged to give up meat, dairy, sugar, alcohol, nicotine, caffeine, soda, junk food, fast food, processed food, packaged food, and even cooked food - as well as go without their loved ones and many of their creature comforts - for 30 days. The results are amazing." The 30-day program is conducted at Gabriel Cousens' Tree of Life Rejuvenation Center in Arizona, and offers additional insight into that facility. The film is being shown as a fundraiser with the permission of the producers.

The Raw and Living Spirit Retreat is four days of gourmet food, international speakers, and vibrant community in the woods of Camp Adams at the base of Mt. Hood in Molalla, OR. Designed as a small retreat for the raw-curious, new-to-raw, and experienced raw foodist alike, the Retreat offers a spirit of community togetherness unique amongst other raw foods festivals and retreats and the best food on the face of the planet!
