Bay Area Chan Meditation
San Jose, CA
We offer free classes to teach Chan Buddhist Meditation to anyone who is interested in applying this life changing practice to their life. We specialize in using the Chan training techniques to increase our concentration power (Samadhi), whether in sitting or walking meditation. As our concentration grows stronger, our minds become calmer, less stressed, and more focused, enabling us to not only be healthier, but also function more effectively at whatever we put our minds to. (Chan is the meditation branch of Chinese Buddhism, which later became Zen in Japan.)
Our brand of "American Chan" meditation is based on the teachings of Master YongHua, founder of Bodhi Light International (BLI) and Wei Mountain Temple, in Rosemead, CA. Master YongHua has formulated the ancient teachings of Chinese Chan to be more accessible to Western culture.
We believe that through hard work, the proper methods of practice, and guidance from a wise adviser, everyone who cultivates should be able to make real progress. Master YongHua’s teachings provide us with practical methods to improve our lives and become better people.
For more information, please visit BLI's website: www.ChanPureland.org
Feel free to contact us at email@example.com if you have any questions.
The Personal Developer
This is a group for people interested in self-help or personal development to get together and learn self improvement tools together.
Do the following describe you?
You like learning tools and techniques for personal development, such as learning about how the mind works, how relationship works, how to communicate better, and how to become a more successful person.
You are willing to take actions to find truths and understandings to help you revolutionize your thoughts and attitudes.
You like meeting with other like-minded people who are similarly interested in learning about themselves and their lives.
If the above describe you, this group is for you, join this group now!
We will have free Zoom meetings to talk about personal development topics, and you will learn knowledge and tools to transform your life!
The group will be led by a professional expert of personal development who had been helping people for over 20 years. This group is brought to you by the Dianetics & Scientology life improvement information center in Sacramento, California.
Skyrocket Your Social Life, Self-Confidence and Happiness
Maybe you are an introvert, and you think that is just the way you are, and you can't do anything about it, but this belief about yourself is untrue. Chances are that NO ONE HAD EVER SHOWED YOU how to improve your social life, how to improve your communication skills, or how to improve your self-confidence! I know this because I have talked to thousands of people who consider themselves introverts, and last time I had checked, they don't teach these topics in schools!
Don't worry though, because in this group we will teach these topics in our meetup events. It is going to take some learning and some work, but you CAN change your social life, you CAN improve your self-confidence and happiness. You will learn HOW in this group.
Think about it. How many of us have given up on something because it was the easy thing to do?
The thing to remember is that the thing that stops you is not other people. It is yourself. If you don't make the effort to make the change, you won't change. If you have decided that you can't, then of course you won't. The truth is that we have convinced ourselves of our own limitations, when in actual fact we are creatures of no limits.
In this group, we will have Zoom meetup events to talk about how to overcome our mental and emotional barriers. We will talk about relationships, and how to make friends and maybe get back to dating again. We will talk about how to improve our social life and communication skills.
I am the organizer and instructor for this group. I have been helping people with self-confidence, relationships, and communication skills professionally for over 20 years. I will teach you knowledge and tools that no one had ever taught you before in our free group meetings.
Excited? I know I am! See you at our upcoming group meetings!
This group and its events are brought to you by the Dianetics and Scientology life improvement information center in Sacramento, California.
The Highly Effective Person
Do the following describe you? You are a capable person, but you find yourself not being as effective as you want in certain areas of you life. You are self-confident, but you find yourself not being as confident as you like in various situations. You are a friendly person, but your personal relationships are not going very well. You are generally successful at what you do, but something in yourself is just preventing you from being as successful as you want.
If the above describe you, then you should join this group.
In this group, we will talk about why does your mind work against you instead of for you from time to time.
- We will talk about how to be stronger, more positive, more confident, and happier.
- We will talk about how to pick the right people to include in your life, so you have more positivity and joy.
All of our meetings are online right now. They are free. This group will be led by professional experts of personal development with over 20 years of experience who are contributing their time to help the community for free.
This group is brought to you by the Dianetics & Scientology life improvement information center in Sacramento, California.

Santa Rosa, CA
Take a walk (or hike) on the wild side! Enjoy many of our beautiful local parks, get exercise, view native plants and wildlife, and meet other friendly local people. The Go Wild hikes are a great way to support your wellness on all levels. Getting moving outdoors is one of the best prescriptions for health and happiness. We're about creating a group environment in which our fellow hikers can connect and enjoy each other’s company in a friendly, courteous and supportive manner. It’s as much about the hikers as it is about the hikes.
The hikes are usually 4-9 miles in length and are appropriate for intermediate-level hikers. Some are appropriate for beginner-level hikers depending on their fitness level. Hikers who are out of practice or out of shape should read hike descriptions carefully and be aware of their fitness level before signing up.
If your plans change after you sign up, please update your RSVP. This is a courtesy to the group and leaves room for others who want to attend.
Cost: $5 suggested donation. No one turned away!
It is essential that we respect each other in the hiking community and the world.
**Please refrain from using Any scented products the day of a group hike! This includes cologne, perfume, aftershave etc.. Symptoms of fragrance sensitivity can include headaches, nausea, and a skin allergy like contact dermatitis, which causes redness, itching, and burning. Watery, itching, burning, and red eyes; sneezing; runny nose; and congestion are also common.
*Remember to wear appropriate hiking shoes, bring plenty of water, a snack and layered clothing.
*Of course we will all look out for each other but ultimately, hikers are responsible for their own safety and well-being during hikes.
WHAT TO BRING:
• Wear appropriate comfortable hiking shoes
• Bring sunscreen and dress appropriate to the weather
• Plenty of water and snacks for longer hikes
• Money for parking (if applicable) and suggested donation
YOUR GUIDE: I (Zoli) became organizer in June 2019. I'm a long time members of the Go Wild Hikers. I've enjoyed many of their hikes over the years. Kristi Bowman announced in May 2019, that she and Tony would no longer lead the hikes. Now it's Go Wild 3.0 lead by me, Zoli Somogyi. I welcome all constructive feedback as this wouldn't be a group without you.
NOTE ON DOGS: Dogs are not allowed on many of the local trails. We ask that you please leave your 4-legged, furry friends at home for the group hikes, unless otherwise specified. Thank you!

"If life were to come with a manual, this in my opinion would be it! If we all applied the Inner Engineering technology, our world would instantly transform to exist from a foundation of peace, joy, and compassion for all beings." -Evita Ochel
For all of the strides we have made in science and technology with standards of living unimaginable a century ago, most human beings still remain in search of wholeness and purpose in their lives. Inner Engineering is scientifically-structured to offer powerful processes from the ancient tradition of yoga to transcend the limitations of who you are and bring you to higher levels of consciousness. Inner Engineering was designed by Sadhguru, a yogi, visionary, and one the foremost authorities on yoga as a powerful tool to create your life the way you want it.
Sadhguru & Deepak Chopra— Creating Inner Peace, Joy and Fulfillment in a Hectic Modern World
"The word 'yoga' means union, that means you experience the entire universe as yourself...by working with the body, by working with the mind, by working with your emotion and energy, you can setup a step-by- step system within yourself where your energies are kept at such a level of exuberance that your sensory body is as large as the universe...Once you experience everybody around you as yourself... your goodness is a consequence, not an effort."
About Sadhguru—Sadhguru is a realized yogi and mystic – a man whose passion spills into everything he encounters. With a keen mind, balanced by a heart that knows no boundary, his presence and powerful yoga programs create an extraordinary opportunity to break through limitations into one’s natural state of freedom, love and joy.
Sadhguru has a unique ability to make the ancient science of yoga relevant to contemporary minds. Sadhguru serves as a bridge to the deeper dimensions of life. His approach does not ascribe to any belief system, but offers methods for self-transformation that are both proven and powerful.
An author, poet and internationally renowned speaker, Sadhguru’s wit and piercing logic provoke and broaden our thoughts and perception of the meaning of life, the very purpose of life. Sadhguru has been an influential voice at major global forums including the UN, MIT, TED, and the World Economic Forum.
Sadhguru established Isha Foundation, a non-profit organization supported by over two million volunteers worldwide. From powerful yoga programs and meditation practices to large-scale humanitarian projects, the foundation’s activities are designed to create an inclusive culture and establish global harmony, earning a special consultative status with the United Nations.

Take a Deeper Step with Inner Engineering: Create a Life of Total Wellbeing—
“Inner Engineering is neither a religion, nor a philosophy or dogma. It is a technology for wellbeing. One does not have to believe or disbelieve--just have to learn to use... Technology will produce results irrespective of who you are.” –Sadhguru
Inner Engineering is a 7-session online course that gives you the opportunity to intellectually explore the ABC’s of life using methods that are the distilled essence of yogic sciences. The course imparts practical wisdom to manage your body, mind, emotions, and the fundamental life energy within.

From Social Caterpillar to Social Butterfly
I used to be a social caterpillar. I was nerdish, I tended to be a loner, and I usually spent my time reading books or watching videos. Nowadays, I don't know if I am a social butterfly, but I enjoy running meetup groups, give talks on various topics, counsel people on how to improve their lives, and I communicate with a lot of people on a regular basis. While other people are feeling isolated, I am making more connections than ever before.
Am I happier than before? Absolutely!!
How did I make this change? What's my secret? That's what we will discuss in this group!
In our group meetings, you will learn tested and tried methods to turn yourself from a social recluse to a dynamic people person. As a result, you will likely make more friends, communicate better with people at work, get noticed more, get more contacts, and if you are single, maybe even find a partner.
Come to this group and learn how to improve your people skills and make more friends. No more isolation! It's time for you to take off and fly!
This group is brought to you by the Dianetics & Scientology life improvement center in Sacramento, California.
Health, Well Being and Spirituality
Spirituality is a broad concept with room for many perspectives. In general, it includes a sense of connection to something bigger than ourselves, and it typically involves discovering the meaning of life. It is a universal human experience—something that touches us all. People may describe a spiritual experience as sacred or transcendent or simply a deep sense of aliveness and interconnectedness.
Some may find that their spiritual life is intricately linked to their association with a religion. Others may pray or find comfort in a personal relationship with God or a higher power. Still others seek meaning through their connections to nature or art. Your personal definition of spirituality may change throughout your life, adapting to your own experiences and growing awareness.
Many practices recommended for cultivating spirituality are similar to those recommended for improving emotional well being. This is because there is a strong connection between the two. Emotional and spiritual well being influence one another and overlap, as do all aspects of well being.
In our meetups, we will address the practical aspects of emotional well being, such as how to resolve emotional conflicts, let go of negative feelings, and recover from painful setbacks of life. We will also address how to stay positive and happy through healthy life, healthy relationships, good communication habits, and associating with positive and ethical individuals.
Thus, this group does not so much delve into the mysteries of the unknown, or discuss questions of what to believe in, but instead it seeks to help our members learn and define spirituality in order to be healthy, be well, be happy, and develop good relationships with the people around us, with a partner, and within ourselves.
If this is what you are interested in, please join this group. We will have free, regular meetings held at the Dianetics & Scientology Life Improvement Center near Marconi and Watt in Sacramento. People of all faiths or no faiths are welcome.

Fresh Intuition Women's Circles
San Jose, CA
Groups run by and for women are our psychic turf; our place to discover who we are, or who we could become as whole independent human beings.
Somewhere in our lives, each of us needs a place,
A little psychic territory.
Do you have yours?
When you recover or discover something that nourishes your soul and brings joy, care enough about yourself to make room for it in your life.
Jean Shinoda Bolen
Fresh Intuition Women's Circles is a monthly women's gathering to explore women's spirituality, spiritual awakening, women's leadership and empowerment, consciousness studies, energy and intuition with a fresh twist. I am committed to building communities of conscious, empowered and connected women who bring their heart and "soles" to the Circles.
This Meetup is hosted at my home with spaces for 16+ women per Circle.There is a different topic or speaker each month. I have a generous appetizer spread at each Circle, refreshments and raffle prizes which are all part of the monthly membership dues. You must RSVP for a spot each month as membership in the Meetup does not automatically reserve you a spot in the Circle.
Due to the tremendous growth and interest in 2013, there are now two Circles each month with the same topics and speakers. Please note that each of the Circles will be designated on the event Meetups as Circle #1 - The Second Tuesday of the Month, Circle #2 - The Third Tuesday of the Month. Many women have a home group and this adds to the experience of creating community and connection.
I invite you to a space where the Circle can support and nurture the awakening spirit of living consciously, deliberately, and intentionally a full mind, body and spirit-filled life. I create experiences every month that feel like soul food and invite you to create the space in the circle of your own life to nurture this, feed this, and exercise this spiritual muscle.

Spring Hollow Studio Gallery
Spring Hollow Art Gallery & Studio is located inside H Gallery at 1793 East Main in Ventura, California, a collaborative environment including fifteen artists. It is not just a typical art gallery featuring exquisite handpicked, hand made art and items from local as well as international artists, but it is also a divine space to come create your own art as well. Spring Hollow features fine art as well as one-of-a-kind hand made artifacts and beads you can add to your collection, or use as a medium to create your own jewelry, pottery, painting, and handbags. Kate imports beautiful handmade clothing from Thailand and Vietnam. The downstairs is a place to create and the upstairs is a clothing boutique. We also offer a variety of social and instructional classes featuring meditation, painting, pottery, and bead circles to help inspire and get your creative juices flowing!
Spring Hollow is a place to find your inner artist. Kate is the owner and is a retired PhD in early childhood education. She taught children to discover themselves through the arts and social development founding schools in Bangkok, Early Learning Center and Nashville Tennessee, Spring Hollow Early Learning Center, both inspired by the renown Reggio Emilia Approach. She believes that all people are natural born artists, but life has a way of stifling the artist in all of us. As young children, we are stifled by our adult caregivers in our lives that expect us to learn to draw a tree as they see it, not accepting our interpretations of the tree. As adults, we’re told to focus on more pressing matters such as bills, work, family- that our creative needs are surpassed by our survival needs. No matter your age, identity or responsibilities, you can unlock the creative artist that yearns to be free! Not sure what your medium is? Come check us out, we have everything from meditation, painting, pottery, jewelry creating and music- we’ll help you find it.
How to Double Your Self-Confidence
Why do we not have self-confidence? In life, we were often called upon to do things that we were not trained to do. For instance, were you ever trained on how to make friends? Were you ever trained on how to start and maintain a romantic relationship?Were you ever trained on how to get rid negative thinking, or how to increase your self-confidence?
The last time I had checked, they were not teaching these subjects in schools.
If you were asked to perform shooting basketballs, but you were not trained in shooting basketballs, then you will likely make a big fool out of yourself shooting basketballs.
In this fashion, we can lose self-confidence in our ability to have a social life, a relationship, and other important things in life.
In this group, we will remedy this lack of training. We'll learn some of the knowledge and tools that you've been missing. We will learn about how the mind works, how relationship works, and how people work, so you gain self-confidence in dealing with yourself, your relationships, and people. As a result, you will improve your self-confidence, self-esteem, and believe in yourself.
We will have free, regular meetings on Zoom in this group, and you will learn knowledge and tools that you have NEVER learned before!
This group is created by the Dianetics and Scientology life improvement center in Sacramento, California.
