Announcing a new Meetup for Viva La Vegan PORTLAND - Metro!What:
Living Raw Theater: Rawkathon - Gabriel Cousens and Cherie SoriaWhen:
January 19,[masked]:30 PM
Living Raw in Portland's second Living Raw Theater presentation will be a showing of two luminaries from the 2008 Rawkathon
at the home of one of its members in SE Portland near Mt. Tabor. 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.
We will be showing two one-hour interviews, one with Dr. Gabriel Cousens and the second with Cherie Soria, and will have an hour afterward for discussion. Participation size is limited, due to the size of the living room.
As a fundraiser for the Raw and Living Spirit Retreat
, the event participation fee is $8
, 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 me and we can work something out.
I will publish the address of the event to the confirmed event participants.
We're looking forward to seeing you on Monday, January 19th, 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 me! Your living room can't wait to get raw!
