Let's have our first get-together

  • August 30, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Let’s do a meet and greet. We can meet up at my apartment location in Santa Monica, have group discussions about various spiritual and metaphysical topics that we’re interested in, and share our own spiritual journeys and experiences with like-minded friends. I’m intentionally keeping this structure loose for now so we can invent a format that we like together…but I can add some structure if needed.

Unfortunately I can’t really fit more than about 15-ish people in my place, so for this first get-together we’ll have limited attendance. And, because we’ll have limited spots, please ONLY RSVP if you’re 100% serious about coming. I don’t want to be that guy who removes people from this group, but just want to be sure that people who really do want to come don’t miss the chance because someone else saved a spot then didn’t show.

Moving forward we can work on finding a better location to accommodate more people, but till then lets make this work ;).

This will be fun, so see you guys soon.

    I came down with a bad cold so am canceling so I don't expose any of you and make room for someone from the wait list. Hope to make the next one.

    Adrian,
    As you know I am wait listed. I do have a friend attending your meeting already. If you have a last minute cancellation, I do live in S.M.
    Thanks,

    Hey all, Eric has shared an event with us that's happening Saturday Sept 6th. Check it out ;) http://www.meetup.com/Spirit-Su...­

    Hi there I really wish I could attend this meetup, I will be down visiting family in San Diego. However I really like the concept and look forward in going to Future meetings. Also I have just recently created a group of my own. We will be holding an event on September 6th. I hope everyone on here can join and be apart of all this positive movement forward. http://www.meetup.com/Spirit-Su...­

    • Adrian

      Thanks Eric. I think I need some of this.

      1 · August 26

    • Eric

      You should definitely come out Adrian, and if you like you're more then welcome to post it and bring as many of your friends as you want.

  • Mike R

    What I liked about this meetup from the beginning was that it was in an intimate setting, personal, not in a busy restaurant or a place we had to spend money. There are a zillion meet ups with those parameters. There are very few like this one was promoted. Perhaps that is part of why we were drawn to it?

    August 28

  • Vanessa

    I think you're right about it being too late in the day to meet at a park. :( A future option, should the group be feeling adventurous and hungry, is Casita Del Campo in Los Feliz. They'd hook us up with a room for a minimum of $15 per person, and that would work for 40 people. Alternately, if we all wanted a buffet, it'd be between $19-$25 per person. (Wish I were more familiar with your side of town.)

    1 · August 26

    • Adrian

      Let's dicuss Casita del Campo, and other locations on Sat.

      August 27

    • Steven G.

      Great idea. Works for me... even the buffet! Thanks Vanessa!

      August 28

  • Adrian

    Ok everyone, I opened a few more spots. Looks like we'll be packing 20 people in here. If you've rsvp'd but don't think you can make it, please, please let us know ahead of time so we can open the spot up for someone else. Again, I apologize that I can't squeeze everyone in for this one, but remember this is only one event, and we'll work out a better situation for the next get-togethers.

    I have let go my place on Saturday as there is now a possibility that I would be quite late arriving. Hope to see you next time.

    Wow, in a city often lacking in community, I am impressed by this group of individuals so committed to creating community.

  • Sofia M.

    Wow!! It is great to see how everybody wants to help and how many people want to be there. It's awesome. It makes me want to go even more. I just want to learn from all of you. So, even if that doesn't happen in this first meeting, I am looking forward to the next!!

  • Vanessa

    Good point. Hmmm, I'm actually way over by Griffith Park, but I will see what I find when I poke around online. ;) t'd be nice to have everyone together at once, so--finger's crossed.)

  • Vanessa

    Hi Adrian,

    August 26

  • Vanessa

    Perhaps we can all meet up at a local park? We can bring blankets and floor pillows... :) What do you think?

    August 26

    • Adrian

      Hi Vanessa, I'd be open to this but 7-9 might be a bit late? Not sure changing the time at this point is good as some people have already planned around it. Are there any parks in west LA open late?

      August 26

  • harriet l.

    Thanks so much. I'm delighted that I will be going.

    CANNOT MAKE IT. HAPPY TO GIVE SPOT TO ANOTHER. HAVE A GREAT MEETING!

    Hey everyone. Many of you have been emailing me about coming to this event. I'd love for everyone to come but my place can only hold so many people...and it's literally packed now. I'm exploring alternative locations for future meetups. One creative alternative for this one, however, could be to hold a second meetup on the same day. Does anyone else have a home/location to facilitate this? We've got at least 15 people on the waiting list who'd love to attend so if anyone wants to work with me to host a second event we can do that, and figure out a better situation for the next get-together. You can email me directly at [masked] if you can help out with this ;)

      Hi Telly,

      August 26

    • Adrian

      I think this might have been misunderstood. If someone has a better location I'd love to hear about it. I'm working on one myself but it won't be ready by this Sat. I'm definitely not suggesting a lecture. That said, a lot of people want to do this, and if I can't accommodate everyone then I'm sure they'd appreciate going to another potential location--if that works out.

  • Angel M.

    I'm not available for this event but maybe for future events.

    Hi, I'm on the waiting list and would love to be apart of this awesome gathering.

    August 26

  • Jim D.

    Hey - how soon can we meet somewhere where the wait list people can participate? My place can hold about 20

    2 · August 25

    • Adrian

      I'm having about 20 also (including people not on the meet up list). Maybe it's worth setting up a secondary event that day?

    Me, too - would love to get there and off the waiting list. I can bring my own chair, pillow, whatever.

    2 · August 21

  • Adrian

    Does anyone have any easy-to-transport folding chairs, or any kind of chairs that they might be able to bring to this meet up? I'm about 2-3 chairs short based on attendance, so if you have one you could easily bring that would be great ;).

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
