Please be vaccinated to protect us all.
We plan a variety of fun events on LI and beyond - anything from eating to adventure. Do you remember when you were a kid and had friends you could always count on - a friendly face in a crowd of acquaintances? Well, that's what we are about. Genuine friendships with others whom you would love to have to your own home - a group of genuine friends.
Find people whom you are always happy to see - ones who share your interests and who won't cancel at the last minute or be a no show when they have something better to do. The age limits are just a suggestion - if you are a happy, active older person, this is for you too. Please be able to use a computer/android or iphone, and pay by Zelle.
Our events include brunches, book discussions, friendly chat, travel near and far, crafts, adventures, NYC, local theater, gardens, concerts, canasta, keeping fit, even star gazing or anything of interest to you and a few others. Most events take place in Nassau. This group is not suitable for those from mid to eastern Suffolk, Manhattan or Brooklyn.
Places will become available only as people leave the group or are inactive, or no shows at several events. I do remove inactive members on a regular basis to keep the group filled with only women interested in building real friendships. Please understand that not all membership requests are approved.
We do have admission standards. You are welcome to join if you are 50+, if you don't have a pattern of no shows with other groups, are free of drama, and if you can bring a smile to the our next meetup. If you are normal, sane, and secure, you'll get in! Please have a real, recognizable photo of your face when you join, and a valid email address. If you are a cat, puddle or flower, you won't get in. We want to be able to recognize you at an event, and greet you as a friend.

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.
