The Dashing Whippets Running Team is a New York based running team that is founded on, and driven by, the diversity of our team members. With team members from all over the city, the country and the world, and with greatly different running goals, we find unity in recognizing and appreciating each others differences and our mutual enjoyment of running and participating in the New York running community and beyond.
Our goal is to help each other become the best runners that we can and to fulfill our potential as athletes - whether that is to run your first race, run a PR, a marathon, an ultra marathon or an Ironman - our team spirit, expert coaches and training plans will help you achieve and exceed your goals. As a team, we aspire to be a net contributor to the running community by hosting multiple training sessions per week for runners of all abilities and pace, maintaining a low annual membership fee that ensures we are open to all, cheering at races and giving back to the community through volunteering and fundraising for local nonprofit organizations.

Academic Writing Group
New York, NY
Ph.D students, Post-Docs, and early career professors working on their writing projects. We write in solidarity, along side one another, in quiet co-working sessions. The group normally meets in person but now (due to COVID), we write together on ZOOM.
We meet and write, usually for 3 hours, taking short 5-minute breaks every 50/60' of continuous writing.
Join us to defeat the sense of isolation academia entails. In our writing group, we support each others' goals and increase our productivity! And we drink a lot of coffee ☕️ as well, of course!!!
**The group is restricted to people working in academia (PhD students/candidates/post-docs/professors)
**Note: The writing group does not provide feedback on your writing (proofreading, works-in-progress, etc.) we use the time to actually write in solidarity!!

Past Lives, Dreams, Soul Travel throughout New York
New York, NY
Open to all those looking to find more wisdom, love, inner peace and spiritual freedom in their lives, through better understanding of dreams, past lives and the personal way the universe speaks to us daily. Move naturally and easily into higher areas of awareness and help life flow in a smoother and happier direction. One form of personal meditation we explore is known as a "Spiritual Exercise". This form of simple meditation, using your creative imagination, strengthens your inner guidance and helps you recognize your true identity as Soul, an eternal and divine spark of God.
Nothing needs to be taken on faith. Experience it yourself.
Have you had one of the following spiritual experiences? Come and share; learn more about connecting to direct guidance and achieving personal growth.
* Past-life recall or having a sense that you have lived before (in a meditation or dream)
* Dreams -- that opened awareness, expanded your consciousness, told of a future event, gave you an answer
* Out-of-body or near death experience * Seeing an inner light
* Hearing an inner sound
* Inner guidance (angel, spiritual master, departed loved one)
* Knowingness (intuition, coincidence, déjà vu)
* Unconditional love (from a family member, friend, pet, etc.)
* Sense of oneness, divine love
* Connection with all life -- greater awareness, feeling of inner peace
Creative techniques are discussed in these Meetups to further explore our inner worlds. Similar to meditation, yet more active, these contemplation techniques, such as singing the ancient love song to God, HU, (pronounced 'hue") helps with self improvement, brings self empowerment through greater inner understanding, opens consciousness, helps in understanding how karma is created, how to work through it, and gives guidance on how to achieve states of Self and God Realization.
HU, this ancient and sacred word for God, can be found in the Jewish Kabala, Christian Gregorian chant, Buddhism, the Sufi teachings, Chinese Taoism, as well as in the path of Eckankar. It is a universal word with a very high vibration. You are invited to try it anytime you would like, either out loud or silently to experience the effects for yourself. (www.hearHU.org)
We warmly welcome you to join us in our events and discussions that take place in all 5 boroughs, Westchester and Rockland – a common meeting ground for all who have had or would like to have a life-changing spiritual experience.
Our group is sponsored by Eckankar. Experience the Light and Sound of God. This ancient spiritual teaching offers spiritual techniques and resources for an individual to discover truth for themselves.
To learn more about Eckankar, go to www.Eckankar.org. You can find out about advanced study and the spiritual exercises of ECK.

New Jersey Divas Who Rock
Hey Divas! Welcome to the New Jersey Divaz Who Rock group! This is a group for adult females of all ages who are interested in meeting new people who share common interests. I have realized that as an adult it is easy to lose touch with old friends and even harder to make new ones, so I hope this meetup can help make lasting friendships! I would like to get together at least once per month to socialize and have fun. Some of the events I am planning include dinner, drinks, dancing, bowling, hiking, movie nights, game nights, trips to NYC and more! Suggestions are always welcomed of course and if you are interested in becoming an event host please let me know!
We understand that circumstances occur. But we ask that if you have RSVPed for an event, and can no longer attend, that you update your RSVP. We want to keep the group open to like minded individuals who are here to meet new people and are open to creating longlisting friendships. Therefore we will be implementing strict rules in regards to "No shows". Which is someone who has RSVP multiple times and have not shown up or informed an organizer before hand.
SAFETY: <br>We want everyone to have a safe and pleasant experience while participating in our meetups/events. By joining the group or participating in anything that is posted, you and your guests are taking responsibility for your own safety and well-being.
DRINKING AND DRIVING:
Getting drunk can come with repercussions far worse than feeling embarrassed. Please take the appropriate measures when it comes to monitoring your drinking as alcohol affects everyone differently. If you notice someone's drinking has recurrently crossed the line from "moderate" or "social drinking" to "binge" or "problem drinking" - please inform the event host/organizers privately. Going out with crowds of people is fun and can often times lead people to drink more. Remember that alcohol does change people's actions and behaviors. Please make sure that while you are attending meetups/events... that you are representing yourself, as well as our group in a safe, positive, friendly, and respectful manner.
<br> If there is someone in the group who has a problem with drinking and driving, please send me a private message. We need to take every measure to ensure that our get togethers are done in a safe manner. The responsibility of planning ahead on a social drinking night is YOUR obligation and no one else under any circumstance. Please always have a backup plan.

We believe in fair play, healthy competition, and inclusive community. We put on the best game in the city because we have the best people in the city.

Bring a red shirt and a white shirt. Teams will be assigned before hand based on player skill level and may be adjusted during play to maintain balance. Balls will be provided. Absolutely no slide tackling or unsafe play. Turf shoes must be worn - no studs allowed. 48 hour cancellation notice for guaranteed refund.

Peeling The Traumas Away
New York, NY
***This is an online group only*** Open and welcome to any country, state & gender ***
I want this platform to be a judgement free, safe space for people seeking personal growth and are on their personal journey to self awareness.
This group is intended to provoke a new lens of perspective for those seeking healthy relationships in life after a life of abuse or neglect.
We will discuss topics such as Narcissistic abuse recovery, emotional awareness, boundaries, self love, self acceptance, identifying emotional triggers and many other majorly important things that can keep someone feeling stuck in a place of unhappiness.
This self awareness path can seem lonely (and it is for a reason) but there are many other people just as passionate at diving into their own "lonely" as well. It's encouraging to hear other perspectives and engage in that same driving force together.
**** I will take this time to add that I am very protective over my group and members. I will not tolerate any members to present in any event I host to show up in a "competitive victim state". This will not be a place to "up someone" based on each person's trauma and past. Trauma does not have a place for competition and neither does my group. With this being said, I will remove any member from this group that displays this type of demeanor. If any member feels uncomfortable, please message me directly. ****
