Welcome to The Bay Area’s Number One Wellness Meetup Group!!
ALL are welcome here!...We're here to encourage you ...to support those who haven't even ventured down the road of 'plant-based' ...maybe you're curious about all the 'veggie-talk' buzzwords out there (such as, plant-based) ...or want to find out what's the difference between whole-food-plant-based, vegan, vegan-ish and vegetarian lifestyles. ...or it could be a countless number of other questions ...our group is about the questions, the answers, sharing information and supporting each other in a positive way.
Are you totally new to the forks over knives, plant-based/vegan/vegan-ish/vegetarian world? Or perhaps you've already chosen one of these lifestyles, or are maybe a non-vegetarian and curious about a plant-forward life-style or wanting to eat that way on occasion. You might be seeking information, support, and activities to help maintain, explore and/or transition to a carnivore-free lifestyle (even if it's only part-time ...to start)?
Or maybe you're wanting to seek out information about possibly incorporating an SOS-free lifestyle too (no salt, oil or sugar).
Maybe you're looking to find a cure for an ailment or are just a life-long learner, thirsty for ongoing education to maintain excellent health?
Looking for meditation & wellness classes & tips, retreats, farmers markets, urban hikes, films & festivals, webinars, online classes, blogs, recipes or healthy seasoning ideas, group fitness activities, café get-together's and dining events? And, you've been wanting to find a group that posts some awesome tips to help each other out.
YOU FOUND IT HERE!! The Bay Area’s Number One Wellness Meetup group in providing events and health & wellness information to benefit YOU! Information and events to help yourself or to help someone else...
** Hosted and some unhosted events will be posted.
** When attending events, all are asked to please respect and abide by the organizer and/or host’s instructions, i.e., some events may require cash only, as not all venues will issue separate checks or will only allow 3-4 checks, so we’d have to bundle several attendees on each check, etc. Bottom line, be flexible. :)
** And, please help to build our community! Tell others about the fantastic information they can obtain here and ask them to join our group! BAY AREA WELLNESS - Plant-Based, Vegan & Vegetarian Group
** BECOME AN EVENT ORGANIZER:

TAKE A MOMENT NOW and Drop me an email with request to add you as an EVENT ORGANIZER. I would be thrilled to have you on the leadership team and can provide guidance on how to schedule and host events!
** RSVP BUSINESS:
Please hold off on RSVP until ya know you’re definitely going to attend (especially when there's a limit to number of attendees or reservations are involved). For the No-shows, including late cancels (less than 24-hrs before event), you may be removed from the group, especially where reservations are involved. The no-shows will also be flagged as a no-show (3 of these for any events and you'll probably be removed from the group)... I don’t want to see you go (really, I don’t), but it does take time to organize, schedule and host events. People on wait-list also get upset and venues expect full party to show-up too.
Healthy lifestyle activities have no room for drama ...events need to remain drama free or member will be removed from group.
RSVP policy subject to change.
** DID YA KNOW:
Meetup charges Organizer ($98.94/6 mos) to keep the group live. In addition to paying Meetup, supplies are purchased too, i.e., name-tags, markers, table cloths, etc. So, some events may ask for a small, and very much appreciated, donation (fee) to help recover some costs. Thank you in advance for the support!
** P.S. Non-vegans & non-vegetarians are highly encouraged to join this group! (so please get the word out) ...one caveat ...although, we will only be ordering vegan or vegetarian cuisine at restaurants. ;) Psst, we aren't going to argue with others about food choices and there will be a code of conduct expected from all.
