Academic Writing Group
New York, NY
Ph.D students, Post-Docs, and early career professors working on their writing projects. We write in solidarity, along side one another, in quiet co-working sessions. The group normally meets in person but now (due to COVID), we write together on ZOOM.
We meet and write, usually for 3 hours, taking short 5-minute breaks every 50/60' of continuous writing.
Join us to defeat the sense of isolation academia entails. In our writing group, we support each others' goals and increase our productivity! And we drink a lot of coffee ☕️ as well, of course!!!
**The group is restricted to people working in academia (PhD students/candidates/post-docs/professors)
**Note: The writing group does not provide feedback on your writing (proofreading, works-in-progress, etc.) we use the time to actually write in solidarity!!

Genuine Friends 50-70+ Long Island Ladies Group
Garden City, NY
You must attend a new member meetup to join the group. Join our waiting list and we will invite you to the next one.
Please be vaccinated to protect us all.
We plan a variety of fun events on LI and beyond - anything from eating to adventure. Do you remember when you were a kid and had friends you could always count on - a friendly face in a crowd of acquaintances? Well, that's what we are about. Genuine friendships with others whom you would love to have to your own home - a group of genuine friends.
Find people whom you are always happy to see - ones who share your interests and who won't cancel at the last minute or be a no show when they have something better to do. The age limits are just a suggestion - if you are a happy, active older person, this is for you too. Please be able to use a computer/android or iphone, and pay by Zelle.
Our events include brunches, book discussions, friendly chat, travel near and far, crafts, adventures, NYC, local theater, gardens, concerts, canasta, keeping fit, even star gazing or anything of interest to you and a few others. Most events take place in Nassau. This group is not suitable for those from mid to eastern Suffolk, Manhattan or Brooklyn.
Places will become available only as people leave the group or are inactive, or no shows at several events. I do remove inactive members on a regular basis to keep the group filled with only women interested in building real friendships. Please understand that not all membership requests are approved.
We do have admission standards. You are welcome to join if you are 50+, if you don't have a pattern of no shows with other groups, are free of drama, and if you can bring a smile to the our next meetup. If you are normal, sane, and secure, you'll get in! Please have a real, recognizable photo of your face when you join, and a valid email address. If you are a cat, puddle or flower, you won't get in. We want to be able to recognize you at an event, and greet you as a friend.
We do post pictures of group events on Meetup and Facebook, so when you join, you are agreeing to be photographed.
Join my other group: http://www.meetup.com/Travel-Friends-Near-and-Far/
Our annual dues are $20 per year collected annually (year ends on April 14), paid at your first meetup, or by Zelle. Renewals are $20, paid by April 14.
To maintain your membership, you must attend at least one event every two months.
New York, NY
This group is for women in their 30s - 50s who are relaxed and easy going and love girlfriend time!
<br>Lunches, brunches, interviews by the pool... fun events, happy hours, travel, craft making, self-care, design, cooking lessons, live music & performances, beach time, yummy food, and most of all, laughter!
I want to keep this group genuine and close-knit, so not everyone will be a good fit. My hopes are to have an amazing group of strong, like-minded women who will form incredible lifelong friendships..
Can't wait to meet you! xx Heather

Past Lives, Dreams, Soul Travel throughout New York
New York, NY
Open to all those looking to find more wisdom, love, inner peace and spiritual freedom in their lives, through better understanding of dreams, past lives and the personal way the universe speaks to us daily. Move naturally and easily into higher areas of awareness and help life flow in a smoother and happier direction. One form of personal meditation we explore is known as a "Spiritual Exercise". This form of simple meditation, using your creative imagination, strengthens your inner guidance and helps you recognize your true identity as Soul, an eternal and divine spark of God.
Nothing needs to be taken on faith. Experience it yourself.
Have you had one of the following spiritual experiences? Come and share; learn more about connecting to direct guidance and achieving personal growth.
* Past-life recall or having a sense that you have lived before (in a meditation or dream)
* Dreams -- that opened awareness, expanded your consciousness, told of a future event, gave you an answer
* Out-of-body or near death experience * Seeing an inner light
* Hearing an inner sound
* Inner guidance (angel, spiritual master, departed loved one)
* Knowingness (intuition, coincidence, déjà vu)
* Unconditional love (from a family member, friend, pet, etc.)
* Sense of oneness, divine love
* Connection with all life -- greater awareness, feeling of inner peace
Creative techniques are discussed in these Meetups to further explore our inner worlds. Similar to meditation, yet more active, these contemplation techniques, such as singing the ancient love song to God, HU, (pronounced 'hue") helps with self improvement, brings self empowerment through greater inner understanding, opens consciousness, helps in understanding how karma is created, how to work through it, and gives guidance on how to achieve states of Self and God Realization.
HU, this ancient and sacred word for God, can be found in the Jewish Kabala, Christian Gregorian chant, Buddhism, the Sufi teachings, Chinese Taoism, as well as in the path of Eckankar. It is a universal word with a very high vibration. You are invited to try it anytime you would like, either out loud or silently to experience the effects for yourself. (www.hearHU.org)
We warmly welcome you to join us in our events and discussions that take place in all 5 boroughs, Westchester and Rockland – a common meeting ground for all who have had or would like to have a life-changing spiritual experience.
Our group is sponsored by Eckankar. Experience the Light and Sound of God. This ancient spiritual teaching offers spiritual techniques and resources for an individual to discover truth for themselves.
To learn more about Eckankar, go to www.Eckankar.org. You can find out about advanced study and the spiritual exercises of ECK.

Peeling The Traumas Away
New York, NY
***This is an online group only*** Open and welcome to any country, state & gender ***
I want this platform to be a judgement free, safe space for people seeking personal growth and are on their personal journey to self awareness.
This group is intended to provoke a new lens of perspective for those seeking healthy relationships in life after a life of abuse or neglect.
We will discuss topics such as Narcissistic abuse recovery, emotional awareness, boundaries, self love, self acceptance, identifying emotional triggers and many other majorly important things that can keep someone feeling stuck in a place of unhappiness.
This self awareness path can seem lonely (and it is for a reason) but there are many other people just as passionate at diving into their own "lonely" as well. It's encouraging to hear other perspectives and engage in that same driving force together.
**** I will take this time to add that I am very protective over my group and members. I will not tolerate any members to present in any event I host to show up in a "competitive victim state". This will not be a place to "up someone" based on each person's trauma and past. Trauma does not have a place for competition and neither does my group. With this being said, I will remove any member from this group that displays this type of demeanor. If any member feels uncomfortable, please message me directly. ****
