OC Girlfriend Circles

Irvine, CA

OC Girlfriend Circles

Are You Interested In: 

• Making meaningful friendships? 

• Learning new skills to improve the friendships you have? 

• Meeting women who share your desire for healthy friendships? 

• Making real connections with women who are also looking for the same? 

We are looking for: 

• Women of all ages (21 to 101), in all stages of life who are seeking to find, create and build friendships. 

• Women who want to improve their friendship skills. 

• Women who are willing to be responsible for their behaviors and be respectful of others.

Who we are:

Our group was founded in August 2014.  We are a Women's Friendship group based on the concepts and principles in 2 books by Shasta Nelson.  

In "Friendships Don't Just Happen" we learn about the 5 Types or Circles of Friendships that we have in our lives and how to strengthen those circles so that we have friends in all areas of our life.

In "Frientimacy" we learn that there are 3 requirements to every friendship: Consistency, Positivity and Vulnerability.  The book goes into depth about each of these, how to develop them, and how to know which might be missing in your friendships.

We use these teachings by requiring consistency and commitment from our members.  You can't get to know people deep enough to develop and strengthen your friendship if you don't see them regularly.  Statistics tell us that it takes 7 interactions with one person to really start building friendship.  We keep our group numbers small, less than 50, to help improve the chances that you'll see the same people over and over again.

We are NOT just about the fun events or finding someone to do something with you.  We are very focused on our connections and for this reason there is always a time for connecting at every event.  This is the crucial component of our activities.  I understand that finding events you enjoy is important and we all LOVE to do fun stuff while creating memories and strengthening our bond but if the fun event is all you're looking for we aren't the right fit for you, there are LOTS of other Meetups for that.

We are open, warm and friendly.  

My Southern upbringing tends to shine through and I will go out of my way to make you feel welcome and included as will the rest of the group members.  

What we’re offering: 

• Interesting and fun events from low-key local OC to adventures around SoCal. 

• Examples of what we've done in the past:

Painting & Wine                             Escape Rooms                   Universal Studios/Disneyland              Glen Ivy Spa Day

Oscar Night Viewing Party          Slumber Parties                 Afternoon Tea                                         Museum visits

Breaking the Cycle of Loneliness

Lake Forest, CA

Breaking the Cycle of Loneliness

Do you feel lonely?

Left out?

Do you feel alone even when you are around people?

Surveys show that the percentage of people feeling lonely has increased over the years, and recently, with the pandemic, reached new heights. In this group we will be discussing effective ways to get out of loneliness and into being able to form strong social connections.

Do you feel any of the following apply to you?

- Feeling socially isolated
- Inability to connect with people
- Feeling lonely even when you’re around other people
- Your interests and ideas are not shared by those around you
- Lacking friends you know you can turn to
- Overly sensitive in social situations
- Anxious about social rejection
- Your friends and family are far away or gone, and you haven’t been able to make new friends

Loneliness begets more loneliness. People who are lonely are more sensitive about the possibility of rejection. They can feel anxious in social situations. Feeling lonely can actually stop you going out and trying to make connections.

How can you break the cycle of loneliness?

We will be giving free webinars that address the underlying causes of loneliness and how to form meaningful connections with other people. You will learn just how much your past experiences affect you in the present—and what you can do to remove that influence and have renewed vitality toward life and friendships.


This group was created by South Coast Mission, Dianetics & Scientology Self-Improvement Center.

Is Self-Sabotage Holding You Back?

Lake Forest, CA

Is Self-Sabotage Holding You Back?

Are you putting your own obstacles in the way of achieving success and happiness?

Are you stopping yourself from achieving your full potential?

Are you undermining your relationships? Forcing your partner to walk away? Or continuously choosing the wrong partner?

Do you feel that self-sabotage is hard-wired into you and you can’t do anything about it?

If any of these questions resonate with what is going on in your life, then our group is for you. We will be giving free webinars on topics of self-sabotage, and explain how it really comes about and how to get yourself out of the self-sabotaging cycle.

Are you watching yourself self-sabotage but can’t stop yourself? This is common in self-sabotaging behavior. You feel something in your subconscious is making you ruin your chances of happiness or success but you’re powerless to stop it. And you’re not wrong. Compulsive self-sabotage comes from a part of your mind that is hidden from view and not under your control. You’ll learn about this in our webinars.

Relationships can really suffer from self-sabotage. Something triggers and you find yourself getting angry or hurling abuse at your partner. Or you make a snide or critical remark you immediately regret but then do it again! You find yourself pushing your partner away and the next thing you know, they’ve gone. And then the regret floods in, but now you’re even more afraid of failure in relationships, making it harder the next time round.

Does any of this sound like you? Relationships can be difficult enough without self-sabotaging them. In our webinars we’ll tell you how to stop having relationship failures and start having winning relationships.

If you feel you’re stuck below your potential level in your career because of your own self-sabotage, you’ll learn why and how you can reach your full potential. There are many kinds of self-sabotage, all of them drive your self-esteem and confidence down and all of them can ruin your life in the long run.

Join our group and learn how to break the vicious cycle of self-sabotage!

Overcoming Trust Issues in Relationships

Lake Forest, CA

Overcoming Trust Issues in Relationships

Are you anxious you’ll get hurt (again)?

Are you putting up walls in your relationship?

In this group we will be giving free webinars on topics to do with trust issues in relationships. A relationship can fail if one or both of the partners feels they have to hold back for fear of being hurt or betrayed. Repercussions can include:

- Difficulty communicating and opening up to your partner
- Constant feelings of anxiety about whether the relationship will work or not
- Reduced intimacy
- Feeling that you can’t create the deep, loving connection you would like
- Strain on family life

A previous bad relationship or breakup can leave you with emotional fallout that stays with you well into the future, affecting your present relationships. Unless this is addressed, you can continue to bring your old pain and mistrust into your current and future relationships. In our webinars you can learn how to rid yourself of your relationship emotional baggage and be able to build a truly trusting, loving relationship.

WHAT IF MY PARTNER IS CHEATING ON ME?
If you are wondering if you are right to be mistrustful, we’ll be giving webinars on how to spot a toxic or deceitful partner. There are specific personality traits you’ll learn about that are associated with a toxic person—and which are very often hidden from immediate view! We’ll also tell you the telltale signs of someone who is doing something deceitful behind your back, such as cheating on you, flirting or misusing mutual finances.

We’re looking forward to meeting you via our webinars! Please message us if you have any questions.
