GAPS Retreat in Portugal

Dear Friends,

A group of people under the guidance of Francoise Hanoul, a Belgian GAPS practitioner, are building a completely secluded, pollution-free centre in Northern Portugal called the bambou centre ( The goal is to create a place to facilitate skill and brain development for GAPSters. They would like to teach parents how to follow the GAPS Nutritional Protocol, while other people help them to take care of their children. This place will also represent the opportunity for young autistic and neurodiverse adults to find employment, working in connection with nature, gardening, cooking and working in a community. They are currently working on getting source water in outdoor basins! They are looking for investors or partnerships.
