Overcoming Breakups and Toxic Relationships
Lake Forest, CA
If you’ve experienced a bad breakup or just got out of a toxic relationship, this group is for you. We will be giving free webinars to help you get over your breakup or overcome the effects of being in a toxic relationship.
In our free webinars you can learn:
- How to heal and move forward
- Why the emotional pain from a bad relationship can be so strong and last so long
- How to pick a non-toxic partner and create a healthy relationship
The emotional fallout from a bad breakup or toxic relationship can continue for years unless something effective is done to heal the emotional pain. It can cause negative emotions such as anger, resentment, sadness, low self-esteem, anxiety, bitterness and disillusionment. It can make it very difficult to move forward with a new relationship.
The good news is that there is a way to heal the emotional pain and put you back on the road to being able to have a successful new relationship. There are effective and simple solutions that work and we will tell you about these.
In our webinars, you can learn why a breakup or toxic relationship can be so devastating and take so long to get over; and learn how to actually get over it and be able to start a new relationship.
This group is sponsored by South Coast Mission, Dianetics & Scientology Self-Improvement Center.
Sunrise to Sunset Hikers
Mission Viejo, CA
While this group is primarily focused on hiking, we also enjoy other forms of outdoor fun such as canoeing, biking, kayaking, camping and backpacking.... and a variety of special events including concerts, beach parties, museum, garden, art and holiday walks.
Our success is based in part on our ability to increase the fun factor of outdoor events, often including a social activity such as picnics that include food and beverage. Our organizers also design conditioning hikes that are intended to enhance aerobic fitness and endurance. Our group has peaked virtually all the major mountains in Southern California, including Mt. Whitney. We strive to offer the most fun and scenic outdoor activities available to residents of Orange County.... events that are both in and out of area.
Our group is diverse, including young/middle/senior ages, singles and couples, and a mix of people with differing racial/ethnic/cultural/religious/political backgrounds. The unity of the Sunset Hikes Meetup centers on our shared love of fun, outdoor activities.
We do NOT ask for donations to support our administrative costs or charitable pursuits, however we do ask that you actively and enthusiastically participate in our events. So come on out! Make new friends, get some exercise, and enjoy the great outdoors. We are all about having fun!
Check out the "Our Calendar" tab for a schedule of upcoming activities. We look forward to seeing you at one of our events soon....

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
Scavenger Hunts Movies Restaurant Hopping Wine Tastings
Day-trips with carpooling Girlfriend Getaways Dancing & Concerts Theater
• Events in evenings, daytime, weekday, weeknights, and weekends.
• Pre-set monthly events:
• Girlfriends Lunch on the first Thursday
• Girl's Night Out on the second Friday
• a Birthday Celebration event on the third Saturday for all the birthday ladies for that month
• Brunch & Fun day on the fourth Sunday
• We also have other events thrown in at various times, usually on the weekends but the occasional weeknight or weekday does sometimes happen too.
• Meaningful discussions and practical applications of great books/blogs on friendship including "Friendships Don’t Just Happen" by Shasta Nelson.
• A welcoming, compassionate, and drama-free place for meeting new ladies and making genuine friendships.
• The $25 membership dues are collected annually. All new members receive a 30-day free trial before their dues is collected. Dues are not pro-rated and are non-refundable.
• We try to keep our membership roster up-to-date and current. As you can tell, we are not about the number of members but more about active, involved and committed members. If you are not actively pursuing attendance at events, you may be removed.
• Please keep lines of communication with the organizer(s) open and timely. Please make sure the organizer(s) know the best method of reaching you.
• If payment is required for an event, the member is responsible for any fees that may be associated with making online payments and unless stated otherwise, are non-refundable.
• No marketing or self-promoting of professional services of any kind

Breaking the Cycle of Loneliness
Lake Forest, CA
Do you feel lonely?
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.

Welcome teams to Love on a Leash - North San Diego County Chapter
Watch the webcasts of Francis Lucille, and ask live your questions on non-duality, happiness, meditation, etc...
Francis, a long time friend and student of Jean Klein, is a spiritual teacher of the Advaita Vedanta tradition. His teaching is not "Neo Advaita" but traditional Advaita, which means that the experience of our true nature has been transmitted from generation to generation by a lineage of sages.
Francis' master, Jean Klein, met his guru in India in the early Fifties and stayed and studied with him for several years. He later studied the tradition of Kashmir Shaivism with Dibianandapuri and of Hatha Yoga with the famous teacher Krishnamacharya. Jean Klein was an Acharya, meaning a guru who, having realized the common ground of all spiritual teachings, can teach according to many traditions with equal ease. He loved the humor of the Zen patriarchs, the poetry of Rumi and of the Sufi tradition, and the sweetness of Meister Eckhart's Christian expression of the Absolute. His teachings reflected his love for art and music, addressing the needs of a demanding intellect while focusing to a large extent on the perceptual and sensorial aspect of our experience.
Francis' teachings reflect those of his guru: appreciation for humor, art, music, and poetry, intellectual rigor with a "personal" twist due to his training in Mathematics and Physics, emphasis on the body and its feelings. There are meditation and yoga sessions inspired by the Tantric and Hatha Yoga traditions in addition to the traditional Advaitic dialogues. Music concerts, often featuring Francis as a performer, are also included in the program of the retreats.
Click on the link "Pages" above for more infos on Francis Lucille and videos.
You may register here for the webinars and webcasts and for the retreats with Francis. We are making sure Truth lovers with financial hardship can have access to the teachings by offering them scholarships (free spots). Donations are of course welcome and necessary to cover the expenses.
There are also 8 week long retreats every year at Laura and Francis' home in Temecula, California, and retreats in Tampa (Florida), Orlando (Florida), Paris (France), Barcelona (Spain), Munich (Germany) and at the Omega Center (upstate New-York).
ADVAITA is an eclectic group of friends interested in meditation, yoga, enlightenment, self realization, non duality teachings (Advaita Vedanta, Zen Buddhism, Sufism, Taoism).
Diverse age groups and professions are represented: artists, musicians, mathematicians, physicists, engineers, physicians, dentists, yoga teachers, therapists, business owners, home makers, retirees, students etc.
Week-end Meetings: This is not the Meetup group for the Temecula week-end meetings, only for the online webcasts and for the retreats. For a schedule of week-end meetings you would like to attend in person instead of online, become a member of the ADVAITA Temecula local Meetup group:
