Creating a Local GAPS Community

On Thursday night we had another great GAPS get together with local GAPSters.  It can be so encouraging to meet with others who are like-minded!

When I first began my GAPS journey, I had no idea there would be so many others in my local area who were on the same path!  One of the first people I met was Meghan of Whole Natural Life.  She had the awesome idea of having some get-togethers with other GAPSters and it’s been great to get that going again after a break of a few months.

I think this is something that anyone can organize in their local community.  I’ve found the best way to get the word out and find others is through local WAPF chapter groups.  Most of the people I’ve met have already been attending meetings or are at least on our yahoo groups lists.  I was also able to connect with people through some of the GAPS classes that Monica Corrado of Simply Being Well has been teaching here in Colorado.  So fun!

I realized as I was looking through the pictures of last night that I forgot to take any of our food!  Such a bummer.  We had a great spread, with things like almond flour bread, coconut butter, guacamole and veggies, Long’s Petites (a great frozen banana dessert), beet kvass, and kombucha, to name a few.  Plus, Susanna and Chelsea of Back to Basics Kitchen were kind enough to send some Banana Coconut Pudding along even though they couldn’t make it.  Thanks, ladies!

It will be fun to have more of these get-togethers in the coming months.  We’ve got a great group of people and I’m looking forward to getting to know all of them better!

Do you have a local community of GAPSters in your area?  Have you thought about organizing something similar?

P.S.  Don’t look too closely at the pictures.  They are unfortunately a bit blurry, but I still wanted to show off our great group!

    I would also suggest emailing the GAPShelp yahoo group to try to find people in your area. I didn’t have a lot of success with that for Boulder, but I often see similar emails so I think people do find each other that way, probably particularly if you live in a more populous area.
