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!!
Leap - Conversations for Curious Minds
New York, NY
Leap is an exciting new platform that gets people talking via conversations in small groups. At Leap, we host bite-size conversations which take place over video calls in small groups. Group numbers are kept purposefully small to mirror the intimacy of the interactions that take place in real life.
Members can choose from a selection of topics, taking place at different times throughout the day, and jump in – in the same way that they might jump into a coffee shop or hairdressers and strike up a conversation. The conversation topics themselves are varied and interesting, but most of them share a common thread – they are designed to prompt conversation and they motivate the sharing of stories and anecdotes.

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.

Long Island Love Live and Thrive
Long Island City, NY
Healthy relationships really matter! This group was created for those seriously looking for love and for those who have a desire to be active, mostly outdoors. We attract those who 1. have a desire to be active 2. love the outdoors even though online meetings/classes are offered 3. are kind, caring, and compassionate 4. are grateful people 5. notice, appreciate and crave simple, natural beauties in life 6. are low maintenance 7. are nature lovers 8. are friendly, fun, respectful and welcoming Over the past 19 years of growing my Live and Thrive groups, these character traits stand out the most and are the most common in our membership. When you attend any online meeting and/or class I'll be eager to get to know you better and help others more easily connect with you. Just some of the ways I accomplish this: 1. Make a short podcast about you 2. Create a Nature Note of your first name only (it's a great conversation piece) 3. Plan some group dates for you that are low risk and no pressure 4. Encourage you to consistently attend some group outings so people can find you easily and get to know you better I have seen first hand how many long-term relationships have developed over time. Rather than expensive, high-pressure dates, our members tend to want to spend more time with someone who loves simple, inexpensive activities or outings centered around nature. If this concept resonates with you, I hope you will join us soon and let me get to work finding someone you are truly compatible with! Welcome!

Narcissistic Abuse, CPTSD & Codependency Survivor Support
New York, NY
Please consider joining our sister group at: https://www.meetup.com/pittsburgh-narcissism-survivor-meetup-group/ for more daily meetings, workshops and consistent support and validation. We are a group for people who have suffered or are suffering from Narcissistic Abuse in a love or personal relationship. We will discuss and encourage sharing of our experiences, talk about trauma bonding and how to break the cycle. Most importantly, we will share our communal experience and provide support by listening and sharing our what we've gone through so that all attendees know that they are not alone. Please read this message carefully: Before signing up to any meeting in this group, you MUST attend a First Timers Meeting event. There are NO exceptions to this. These meetings are designed to ensure community safety and if you sign up for an Established Member event without attending one, you will be removed from that event. Before you do anything else, including signing up for an Established Members group, check out our "Events" section and sign up for a First Timers Group and attend one BEFORE you sign up for an Established Member meeting. We are very strict about this rule, so please do so as we hate to remove people from meetings and have to send a PM advising someone of this rule. All meetings are run through Zoom. The links and passwords are reset every day. The links are all sent the morning of the meetings. You will receive your link through whatever email you use through Meetup. Please ensure you have your settings with Meetup set to receive emails as they will come in through that email. If you sign up for a meeting, please check you have received your link well before the meeting as we do not check our emails during meetings. It is your responsibility to check that you have received your link - if you haven't received it and it's before meeting time, simply send your organizer (Kay R., Paige, Roby or Anthony) a PM and we will ensure you receive it. Some more general rules that will be reviewed in your First Timer's Meeting: DO NOT private message moderators/organizers unless you have a question regarding the group as a whole, or you didn't receive a link to the meeting. DO NOT message us for medical, legal, or general advice, and do not contact us to vent. We understand that times are tough and this is not an easy situation to deal with, but we are all running this group on a volunteer basis, and we do not have any medical or counseling degrees. If there is an emergency please call 911, contact your local police, hospital, or physician. There is also a domestic violence hotline (800.799.SAFE) and a suicide hotline (800-273-8255) - these are free 24 hour services. We appreciate your understanding in advance. DO NOT private message other members of the group. Again, this is an exception to the rule above, but if you see someone in a meeting you'd like to reach out to, please send the organizer of that meeting a message and we will ask that person if they consent to being contacted and will pass on your info to them. If a member tells you during a meeting to reach out to them, that is OK as they have consented already. This is for the safety of our members, which we take very seriously. We are happy you are here and hope you find this a supportive community. All of the rules are above are to ensure that you are safe and that the people you will be interacting with are validating, here for the 'right reasons', and are properly vetted. We look forward to meeting you! x Kay R.
Domestic Abuse Survivors: New Friends & Support Group
New York, NY
\*LINK IS EMAILED OUT THE MORNING OF THE MEETING. THIS IS DONE TO ENSURE SAFETY AND CONFIDENTIALITY OF THESE MEETINGS. IF YOU DO NOT RECEIVE THE LINK THAT DAY, PLEASE CHECK YOUR MEETUP SETTINGS/NOTIFICATIONS FOR EMAILS OR PM ME AND I WILL SEND YOU THE LINK THERE\* This is a group for individuals who have been victims of domestic violence, whether it be familial, or intimate partner based, emotional, or physical, we are here to support you. Domestic violence affects an alarmingly large number of people all around the world, and we may not understand it fully, but here, together as survivors, we can support each other in the healing process. Whether you are still in your relationship and trying to leave, have already left, left years ago, or experienced familial violence, this group is for you. This is meant to be a judgment free safe-space for everyone. We generally operate as a small informal chat type group. We open up with some light introductions and then we open up for our informal chat discussions, based on the needs of our members that day. This group isn't here to preach anything to you, we are simply here to validate each other and support each other through our traumas. Individual therapy is highly suggested, as this group is just meant for support. I am not a licensed therapist or mental health counselor of any kind, just someone who was looking for support like all of you. :) We are here to not only find support, but encourage bonds and friendships. It can be so hard to form friendships in adulthood, especially after coming out of an abusive relationship. Since this is a judgment free zone, we can all be ourselves and connect. But please do not contact any one without their consent first. Also, no hate speech or derogatory language of any kind is accepted here. As stated before, this is a group for every one. Cursing absolutely fine, but ableist, racist, homophobic, etc comments will NOT be tolerated & you will be immediately removed from the zoom call & removed and blocked from the group. This is a 0 tolerance policy.
