What we're about

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, make new friends, have fun and have a great time.

FS45+ is the sister group of the main 'Flying Solo' group. Its a unique concept for those 45+ aged single people who enjoy a different environment to our main group, Flying Solo (www.flyingsoloevents.co.uk). (http://www.flyingsoloevents.co.uk) From experience, I've noticed that different age groups/different generations enjoy different types of nights out, different music and different settings, so have created a meetup group which is more specific to their needs. If you are single, 45+ (ish) and like to socialise and meet people, 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 people can get involved in fun activities with a social aspect so that people can 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.

We're a social group for single people, the focus of our group is to get out and about, meet other people in a relaxed, sociable setting, and have a good time! We do not do any introduction games, any awkward Male/Female introductions or make anyone feel in any way under pressure or as if they must meet someone. We want to raise the profile of singles and we reflect this in our events. All events are hosted, and well organised. We appreciate that meeting new people can be very nervewracking so we our members do everything they can to make you feel welcome and relaxed, 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, get yourself involved!

Our 'sister group' is Flying Solo which is for all ages (all welcome) and has been running since Novmber 2012, please check out past events, reviews and pics for an idea of what is on offer and if you want to attend more regular events....www.flyingsoloevents.co.uk. As a member of the FS45+ group you will also be invited to our once a month Flying Solo 'ALL AGES' party. This event is really popular with up to 200 attendees, lively, busy with a more youthful age range but still a large amount of our 45s+ attend.

I am looking for event hosts to help me run the group, help with the parties and with other events, Please contact me/see me at events if you're interested.

Dance of the Heart = Fun, Joy, and Open to Love

The Chateau Barnes

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS AN ALL AGES MEET . ALL WELCOME - MEMBERS FROM OTHER MEETUP GROUPS WILL BE ATTENDING (please arrive between 1.30pm and 1.50pm ready to start at 2pm) If you are open to something a little different, this is for you. Enjoy the blend of fun, joy, as well as love energy that we will create to enable us to raising our vibrations, creating more "feel good", giving us a natural ability to attract whatever we wish into our lives.. 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 from Flying Solos sessions https://www.meetup.com/Flying-Solo-Events/events/231938874/ and www.meetup.com/Flying-Solo-Events/events/[masked]/ which you may find helpful to read. Other fans talk about the following benefits: • "It is so much fun. I feel so great. I find socialising after a Dance of the Heart session gets taken to a whole new level. 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” Dance of the Heart has evolved from many years of Karen teaching 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. The price is £10 https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=DVUUWEU8BWNXN or £15 on the door. Concessions available.
