Introverts Unite! Welcome to the Slowcial: a Slow Social. An introvert is a person who recharges by being alone. This is a place for people who are broadening their social worlds slowly.
Slowcial is a neologism which means:
Slow socialization revolution: Like a slow food movement for socialization, we are cooking up the social meals that nourish us.
Slow-attuned nervous system: We choose not to get overwhelmed by trying to keep up with extroverts all the time.
Slow to the game: Some of have less social experience than our peers of the same age, looking to socialize with others without pretending we are more socially skilled or sophisticated than we actually are.
Slow success: Solitude is a catalyst for innovation. We are people who create our worlds rather than bowing to social pressure. This is not a pity party.
Meetings will be in San Francisco in a quiet library meeting room near public transport, and require RSVP. Social dinners may follow. This group is for adults (21+) in the San Francisco Bay Area. There is no charge to attend. Freaks, geeks, and people overcoming all sorts of challenges are welcome. Even and especially those who show up as normal and well adjusted! The leader of the group is a person who stutters and runs this group as a labor of love for his people. To maintain focus, intimacy, and confidentiality, the only requirement is that you consider yourself an introvert (being unsure is fine).
We have a structured meeting format to allow everyone to contribute equally. The intention is supporting each other by discussing how to thrive in wider society as well as how to live in less conventional ways that are attuned to our uniqueness, forming social connections with others who also thrive with slow socialization.
