What we're about

Greetings and Salutations!

Welcome to the London Introverts Social Club. This group is specifically for Introverts but we also welcome Extroverts too.

People often mistaken the word “introvert” for shyness which is not true, many introverts are very confident, however, they are usually confident in a quiet way (although it is true that most shy people are introverted). Introverts get energised by reflecting inwards, whereas people who are extroverted get energised the more they socialise.

There are many qualities and patterns of behaviour that define an introvert but generally speaking it can often include the following;

1. You enjoy having time to yourself

2. Your best thinking occurs when you're by yourself

3. Other people ask you for your opinion

4. You're a good listener.

5. You're trustworthy

6. Introverts are thought provoking when you get them talking

7. Introverts are self-reflective

Famous Introverts include Barack Obama, Dali Lama, Albert Einstein, Bill Gates, Steven Spielberg, J K Rowling, Emma Watson, Mahatma Gandhi, Rosa Parks, Warren Buffet... the list goes on :-)

In 2017 we plan to host a number of fun events so please keep checking the calender and hopefully something will tickle your fancy.

By joining, you agree to our Group Rules and Banning Procedure. You also agree to our Legal Disclaimer and Release of Liability. If you don't agree to these terms, do not join this Meetup Group. If you have any complaints or concerns to report, please have a look at our Complaints Procedure.

Hope to see you soon

Tea & Talk: Online Peer Support & Social

Online

Join me for Tea & Talk (T&T): A free, peer-led online Meetup with an emphasis on human connection, mutual support and being ourselves. Please note that this event is also hosted with The London Shyness Social Group, Shy London and Safe Spaces. **What we're about** We combine a simple cuppa with peer-to-peer support. It's a relaxed, non-judgemental and informal space where we can eat, drink and talk together about feelings we can't normally openly discuss. With this being an online Zoom event, we encourage people to bring beverages and food with them to have themselves (if they like!). Feedback and suggestions are welcome and encouraged: T&T is *for* you and shaped *by* you. Everyone is welcome from all backgrounds and circumstances. T&T is for anyone experiencing any kind of emotional distress, with or without a mental health condition. Here, it's okay not to be okay. You can share as much or as little you like - YOU are in control. What is shared here, stays here. **Format** There is no strict format for T&T. However, here is a guideline on what to expect: 7:30: Get settled and give people time to join. 7:40: Breakout Rooms will begin. These are rooms consisting of approx. 5 people. Each room will last for 20 minutes. When those 20 minutes are up, participants will be "shuffled" into new rooms. I will spend a few minutes in each room to see how everyone is doing. 9:00: Return to the main group and chat until the event finishes. I have 100 conversation cards if inspiration is needed! **Important Notes** Please remember that T&T is a peer-led social event. It is *not* a support group, but there is a strong element of giving and receiving support and it's intended to be a space where we can talk about our mental health as openly as we like. However, unlike a support group, it is more casual. If a support group is what you are looking for, have a look at the Monday support groups I am hosting by checking out the calendar: https://www.meetup.com/London-Introverts-Social-Club/events Please keep in mind that both T&T and my support groups are peer-led by myself as well and are *not* intended to be a substitute for a more formal support group or a professional mental health service. If you are seeking professional help and support, please get in touch and I would be happy to provide resources. I will try my best to ensure things run smoothly, but please keep in mind that I lead this as a peer and have my own mental health issues. As such, I cannot promise that my events will be perfect. Anonymous suggestions and feedback are very welcome using the link below. Please take into account that I put a lot of work into these events: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/FRVGLH6 **Ground Rules** I have ground rules/guidelines for all events I host. I will cover these near the beginning of the event. **Zoom** Members are welcome to interact by video, audio or by typing using the in-meeting chat. There is no obligation to participate. The meeting ends at 10PM but people are very welcome to arrive later than the start time. We have a back-up Discord server and channel in case there are any technical issues with Zoom. **The Zoom link will be privately messaged on the day via Meetup to those who have RSVPed. If you sign up close to the start time, please get in contact for the details. Please note that my replies may be delayed once the event has begun. Thank you.** **Contact** If you have any questions or feel particularly nervous, please feel free to leave a comment below or PM me. I will do everything I can to help and make sure everyone feels welcome. Lots of love, Jaz x Credit: Photo taken by Mujammil
