What we're about

"The first thing that attracted me to the group was the title, "Flying Solo." It describes we singles in a fun and liberating way. Meaning we are willing to spread our wings and open to new things. Fits me to a tee"

Flying Solo is an inspirational concept for single people in London. We are a social group for single people. We arrange social gatherings, networking, mingles, meals and parties for our members to meet up on a regular basis, make new friends, have fun and have a great time. Our aim is to empower single people and we reflect this in our events.

Membership of Flying Solo is free and our events are free or pay-as-you-go. To register you as a member we will need to use your email address, you will provide this to us when you book tickets for our events.

If you like to socialise and want to meet new people of the same and/or opposite sex, and find a lot of your mates don't go out because they are married/partnered up, not available due to childcare commitments, are always skint or just can't be bothered to go out, or you haven't got a 'significant other' that wants to take part in fun activities, then this is the group for you.

We arrange nights out at convenient venues where so that people can meet new people & regular members, get together, have fun and get to know each other in a relaxed, non pressurised environment. It is for people who like to socialise but do not want to be patronised or pressured into thinking that they must meet someone or be the life and soul of the party (if you want to be though that's fine too!). The aim is to have a good time, meet people, make new friends, build social confidence and have an enjoyable evening with others who are in the same boat.

All events are hosted, which means you’ll be meeted, greeted, made to feel welcome and introduced to other members (if you wish) and encouraged to mingle at every single event we run.

All of our events are suitable for members who want to attend 'on their own'. In fact most of our members, including female members, arrive Solo. You will be introduced to people upon arrival, some events we have a special Ladies table - for ladies who want to make friends and enjoy a cocktail and a natter before they mingle/party. We do not do any 'introduction games' or awkward male/female introductions & you will never be put under pressure or made to feel as though you need to meet or talk to someone on our events.

As a female led group, we are very female friendly. We know attending events and walking in to a bar/club on your own can be a nerve-wracking thing to do... so if you want to attend as a lady on her own to our events you will be very welcome and well supported.....

So if you're stuck in on a night and you want to do something with like minded people and not feel like a sad desperado, remember: Life is a Lottery, 'you've got to be in it to win it' , so get yourself involved!

Our group has no age restrictions but you should note that most of our members are by default, overall in their 30s, 40s & 50s.

Look out for meet ups coming up and suggestions for what people would like to do are always welcome, or if you'd like to host your own events or co-host with me- great! Please drop me an email or see me at events with your ideas. Constructive feedback and ideas on how we can improve our events are always welcome and valued , please email me on sarah@flyingsoloevents.co.uk or see me in person at an event.

How to get the most out of Flying Solo Meetup Group

• Please read the meetup info before you RSVP - Sounds obvious but a lot of people don't. Some meetups may not be your thing - I try to provide as much info for you to make an informed choice - but you can't do this if you don't read the info.

• You are much more likely to make friends if you come to events regularly. People come along on our meets to see other people they have met on previous meets! & believe it or not its a small world - even on London Meetup! If you attend regularly, you will soon notice our 'regular faces' as well as meeting new people each and every event.

• Have a clear profile photo so that other members can see who you are. Nothing fancy, no cats, dogs, landscapes or other people in your pic, just a nice face shot so people can recognise you on Meetup. If you need a nice pic doing, please let me know & I'll take one for you.

• Interact with members between meets using meetup event message boards. Be friendly... say hi, introduce yourself, join in with the pre & post event banter! People will feel that you are friendly and like they know you already when they meet you at the meet!

Look forward to meeting you at our warm, fun, relaxed and friendly group!

Come willing to play too. Dance of the Heart is an uplifting blend of free expression dance with some relaxing moving meditation. As there are no steps to learn, it is ideal for everyone who want to benefit from dance, and believes “they can’t dance”, as well as those who can. It's a great way to connect too. A “Dance of the Heart” enthusiast shares what she most enjoys about it. “I love the freedom to be me, and to move without limitations. It’s so much fun: not only do I find my usual inhibitions are released, but I leave each session uplifted, energised and with my heart opened. I feel happy, relaxed and feel like I am falling in love with everyone! We have some beautiful feedback from previous Meet Up sessions http://www.meetup.com/londonspirituality/events/225735697/ and http://www.meetup.com/londonspirituality/events/227087531/ as well as from a Flying Solos session https://www.meetup.com/Flying-Solo-Events/events/231938874/ which you may find helpful to read.

It's amazing!" • “I feel so much more confident, more deeply connected with others and this impacts all my relationships” • “I used to judge myself and others. Now I do this less and less. Life is so much more fun” • “My health has improved so much” • “My stress levels have decreased, I feel so alive. I really feel I have "healed my heart"” • “Karen gently encouraged to expand my comfort zone and I find that so much more is possible now that I do” If you are ready to fall in love with life (or even with that special someone) “Dance of the Heart” may be the missing piece in the jigsaw for you. Whilst Karen's work has evolved to focus more on fun, joy and opening to love, the videos below will give you a flavour of her latest creation, Dance of the Heart. This has evolved from many years of teaching and leading Dance Meditation which included her teaching on BBC1’s Inside Out series where she showed 3.6 million viewers how Londoner’s can have fun without alcohol and on the BBC’s equivalent in South Korea as part of a documentary on dance in medicine. (If you scroll down the page, you can see an extract from both of these programmes) There are hundreds of different exercises included in Dance of the Heart.

(If you scroll down the page, you can see an extract from both of these programmes) There are hundreds of different exercises included in Dance of the Heart. The video below for the South Koreans includes a version of an Indian Head Massage undertaken in a group. This exercise was included for the TV cameras and will not be part of this coming session. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O8_VCbwabdI The video below for the BBC includes a slow motion exercise.

Dance of the Heart is a series of sessions. Whilst each is different, they all open the heart and bring participants uplifting experiences, fun, joy, feelings of love and more! Not only that, but the more you experience these feelings on the inside, the easier it is to attract whatever you wish into your life (relationships, work, money, ease and flow) Your Facilitator - Karen Skehel: Life and Love Coach As a life and love coach, Karen Skehel has been helping her clients meet their soul mates over more than 15 years. Whilst she is now in her 14th year of living with her own soul mate, she also knows how to successfully navigate the single scene having been single herself for seven years following her divorce. Karen has had many “claims to fame”. For example: She has coached on relationships in front of 1.5 million people on ITV's most popular day time programme, (The Trisha Show, ITV’s answer to Oprah) and has also appeared on ITV2. She also wrote for Natural Health Magazine as The Soul Doctor and The Life Coach over a four year period, contributing a page addressing readers' life challenges every month. She has also appeared on the BBC’s equivalent in South Korea teaching her Dance of the Heart as part of a documentary on dance as a healing too, alongside facilitators from all over the world. She has also taught a session for BBC1’s Inside Out series where she showed 3.6 million viewers how Londoner’s can have fun without alcohol. P.S. Karen is also offering a Free Relationship Readiness Test which will tell you whether you are ready now to “manifest your soul mate” or whether you have blocks and/or specific areas to focus on and what these areas are. You can take the test at http://www.theinnerspa.co.uk/manifestyoursoulmatedayretreats.php Having worked with hundreds of clients over the last 15 years, she has learnt a thing or two about what people want, what they need and what works. She blends her combination of skills to bring her clients experiences that are empowering, fun and life changing.
