Leap - an online meeting place for curious minds
San Francisco, CA
Leap is an exciting new online meeting place for curious minds. We get people talking via classes and conversations in small groups.
Topics cover everything from love and literature to current affairs and travel. Some of our experiences are one-offs, others take place over a number of weeks. So far we've had exciting and engaging talks on the inauguration, on relationships, on the concept of blame, on what's happening in Afghanistan, on movies, and on spirituality.
We've started to create a community of members who are curious by nature and love having good conversations about the things they care about.

The Secret of Health: Positive Thinking
Troubling thoughts, emotions, anxiety, tension, uncertainty, nervousness are all unknowingly created by our own minds.
STRESS, as they say, is the #1 killer. Even PHYSICAL ISSUES can often be caused by the mind. Life could be happy, enjoyable and successful if we were able to master this "enemy within".
Confidence, positive thinking, focus and your true able self would all be perfectly within reach, if this one factor could be tackled.
Find answers to the following questions:
* What is the hidden subconscious that is pulling us down?
* What are the three ways our thinking works?
* Positive thinking? How do you make it a habit?
Get the know-how of life in this group!
Our meetings will be led by an expert with over 20 years of experience helping people with personal development. He is also an experienced speaker who has been a successful consultant to hundreds of businesses.

Healthy Communication Habits that Will Change Your Life
How do you communicate with more self-confidence? How do you connect better with people and make more friends? How do you initiate a conversation with someone you'd like to know? How do you not run out of things to say? How do you feel comfortable in public speaking? In this group, you will learn the healthy communication habits that can transform your life!
What are communication habits?
Here are some examples:
Do you express how you feel, or do you hide your true feelings?
Do you tend to wait for someone else to initiate the conversations, or do you initiate the conversations yourself?
When you talk to someone, do you project yourself well?
When you listen, do you pay full attention to what the other person is saying, or do you think about what you are going to say next?
Are you more introverted or extroverted?
Do you sound nervous when you speak in front of a group of people, or can you be yourself comfortably?
Unhealthy communication habits can block your personal and professional connections; on the other hand, healthy communication habits can help you develop good personal and professional relationships.
That is what this meetup group is all about.
This group will be led by someone who has been helping people with communication skills for over twenty years. The meetings will be on Zoom, they will be free, and you will learn a lot from each meeting. You will learn communication tools you have never learned before. You will likely make more friends, do better with job interviews, and become more confident speaking in front of people.
This group is brought to you by the Dianetics and Scientology life improvement center in Sacramento, California.
WHEN YOU CHANGE YOUR COMMUNICATION, YOU CAN CHANGE YOUR LIFE.
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.
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.
Sonoma County Go Wild Hikers
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!

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!

Sunnyvale Yoga Dance Stretch&More
Hi everyone, I wonder if you would like to join me for yoga, dance, and stretching together? It's about an hour session. I have been doing stretching combination sessions once a week with my roommates since March 2020. it would be great to exercise together and to make friends woohoo!~
My roommates and I are all in tech(i am a student in CS), so we all have been staying home almost 24/7; if you are interested and also cautious with Covid-19 like us, please reach out to me; we would love to have you over, maximum 4 people in total, Sunnyvale, CA
the stretching session would be in my apartment living room because I have all the Yoga, Dance, Stretching accessories here.
It's free, no cost; the only reason I set up this group because I found that I tend to have the better discipline to get my physical activity done when I do it in group VS exercise alone(anyone feels the same? or just me?).
Covid safety& Absence:
for Covid safety, I will only open 4 more available spots, therefore, please be mindful that if you reserve the spot, I will expect you to be here, coz other people couldn't get in this event anymore.
I understand everyone has a busy life; if you have something come up, be aware to cancel it as soon as you acknowledge it; we do have people on the waitlist so that I can move them up.
Anyone who doesn't show up more than twice without any notice given or explanation will be banned from this group; just because it's a free event, it doesn't mean you can not value my time. I do take time to plan each session and protect the event hour from my busy school/life schedule.
Our Yoga Dance Stretch&more session won't waste your time; give it a shot!
