What we're about

Hi Bliss Seekers!!

I have a website called Sutra Lifestyles and I organized this group becuase I'm now making a conscious effort to bring everything that Sutra stands for into "real life" - not just talking about living my bliss, but actually doing it!!

We'll be scheduling some super cool get-togethers - such a great way to meet like-minded people who are on the same wave length...

Let's all step our of our comfort zones together and meet new people who already have common interests. No longer trying to convince friends or family to do things with us that they're not excited about (like I used to do)... instead making the effort to meet new people who already have the same passions or interests. New experiences are the spice of life, aren't they?

I orginally joined MeetUp.com because I had this strong desire to learn how to dirt bike ride and couldn't find anyone who would do it with me... and now almost a year later thanks to the Dirt Biking Meetup Group I joined: I've taken classes, done road trips & camped in the desert, and have a bunch of new amazing friends. What a frickin' awesome experience!

So I've started my own group... based on a bunch of my random and sometimes off-beat interests. I'm letting go of what people may think of me. I'm honed in on experiences that inspire me or things to do that I've always wanted to cross off my bucket list.

Let's do it together and push each other to live our lives to the fullest!

Living Our Bliss! is a place for like-minded, supportive people to come together and form friendships, it is not a dating group. We want everyone to come to events and share your personal Bliss with all of us. Therefore, if we feel that your reasons for joining this group are not in alignment with the intentions and purpose of Living Our Bliss!, we will remove you. We are striving to keep this group as a safe and happy place for people to come together to form long-lasting friendships. And, we intend to keep it that way.

I'd love to see as many like-minded people as possible in the group (guys & girls) and I'd love to hear your ideas too!! If you join the group, please message me about meet-ups you'd like to organize or feel free to post on our page.

If you have a chance, send me a friend request on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/sutra.lifestyles.3?fref=ts) or check out my website Sutra Lifestyles (http://www.sutralifestyles.com/) :)

Thanks so much!!!

We're looking foward to meeting ya soon ♥ ♥

ONLINE Challenge - Set your Top 5 Intentions to accomplish in 2020!

**Please note that this is an ONLINE challenge. There is no location for this challenge.** It's that time again... time to start re-evaluating and raising the bar by doing the things that will get you closer to living the life you picture while daydreaming... How do we get that life? By not only setting goals, but by actually believing we are worthy of that life!! That comes with inner-work, introspection, and surrounding ourselves with people who push us to evolve and step outside of our comfort zones. What intentions do you want to manifest for yourself within the next 6 months? What's on your Bliss Bucket List for 2020? Jot down your Top 5 specific goals that you would like to accomplish by June 30, 2020... and then start working toward them! We are putting our intentions out to the Universe together - that's powerful stuff! We'll be doing a "touching base" Living our Bliss! event mid-year for everyone to come together and share what they've accomplished and what they want to further work on for the following 6 months to end 2020 with a bang! Are you wondering if your relationship is unhealthy, struggling with clarity in your life, feeling like you need support through a difficult time? Please check out my website (https://maikomichelle.com/) — I'm a relationship coach here in San Diego and I also do remote sessions via Skype, Zoom, and Facetime. I focus on aligning you with YOU! Personal insight and self-empowerment are the foundation in which we start changing and expanding so that we can carve out a life and relationships we love :) Join me on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/MaikoMich/), Twitter (https://twitter.com/maimichelle), Pinterest (https://www.pinterest.com/maikomichelle/pins/) or Instagram https://www.instagram.com/maiko.michelle/) for motivation, encouragement and advice whenever you need that extra boost from like-minded individuals or me (I'm a self-empowerment coach!) to help you achieve your goals. We're all here to support one another! Need a little more motivation to ignite your inner fire? Check out this awesome video: Freedom from Resistance! (http://youtu.be/VoDwPBGdpHM) Together... we're ON FIRE for 2020!!! What's on your Bliss Bucket List? Let's start checking off those boxes by creating momentum in the direction of your dreams!

Support for Women in the Stepmom Role: Rise Above High-Conflict Co-Parenting

**If you have anyone in your life who has been struggling in her relationship with a man who has children (and they are facing a high-conflict co-parenting dynamic with the other bio-parent), please share this Meetup with her!** This support group is here to empower your journey of loving a man with kids. Women supporting women. I don’t think anyone can understand the depths of this journey until they’ve walked in these challenging shoes (especially if you're dealing with a high-conflict biological mother). I get it. I’ve lived it. **LET OUR GROUP BE YOUR SUPPORT SYSTEM.** I support women who are in the Stepmom role either dating, in a committed relationship, or are married to a man who has children! If you're facing a high-conflict co-parenting reality, this kind of dynamic requires an entirely different set of skills compared to your average blended family (which can be challenging enough on its own). I've spent the last five years developing step-by-step measures for disentangling from an unhealthy co-parenting dynamic in my own life (while also studying under the best experts in the field which includes therapists, coaches, and high-conflict specialists). With a lot of commitment and hard work, my partner and I together were able to build our "fortress of protection" around us, one brick at a time. Our success came down to building the skills together as a team to contain the negative influence we were unknowingly allowing one person to have on our lives. Our relationship and household now belong to us. Please see my Rise Above Coaching Program (https://maikomichelle.com/rise-above/) — if you're unable to meet in person, I do coaching sessions remotely via Skype, Zoom, or Facetime. **IMPORTANT DETAILS** •These meetups are for women who are with men who have children and are in the midst of a high-conflict co-parenting situation (I do also work with couples). These meetups are only for women who are willing to do the work it will take to contain the toxicity. (We have other stepmom meetups for ladies who are just wanting to get together with other women but aren't necessarily stuck in a high-conflict dynamic). *There is a $25 charge and is limited to a small group of 4 ladies. Please RSVP by the Sunday before each Meetup. We'll be meeting one morning a month (if this day/time doesn't work for you, please email me directly at [masked], and I may change the time for this group or start another group around your availability). Email me if you are interested in meeting one-on-one or doing a meetup online instead of in-person. •I will be hosting these meetups outside in the Casita at our home in Carmel Valley/South Del Mar (if it's cold we'll build a fire)! Contact me if you're interested in having these in another area and we can meet at a cafe/restaurant. •Please share this Meetup with anyone you may know who could use a support system right now. I remember crying at night and desperately Googling: "Should I stay in a relationship with a man who has kids?"... "What do I do if the kids' mother is hostile and spiteful? DON'T SUFFER IN SILENCE ANYMORE... THERE IS HOPE! Let's sit down and share experiences. We CAN carve out the life and relationship of our dreams despite having to deal with a high-conflict co-parent. However, nothing changes until something changes!​ It takes a lot of inner-work and relationship-work to shift a dynamic that's this dysfunctional. I can support you if you're ready to stop suffering at the hands​ of one person's negativity and chaos. xo, Maiko Join my Private Online Support Group: Empowered Stepmoms (https://www.facebook.com/groups/163583027394404/).
