Redwood City, CA
Once I realized I was more successful in working on my daily and weekly habits than focusing solely on my end goals, it unlocked so many things for me. I went from feeling over-stressed and over-whelmed to feeling like I was in the drivers seat of my own life. Whether you want to run a marathon, start a business, get healthier, save more money, whatever it is, this process can help you get there. It's not about instant results, it's about chipping away at your goals each day. Make it easy on yourself, life can already be crazy enough with everything that is thrown into our path. In this group, I want to take folks through a 30 day challenge of building better habits. There will be 3 main activities: 1. Creating a daily routine of habits 2. Meet weekly for community connection and group learning 3. Read for growth Come as your are to this group, and leave who you want to be. This group is open to anyone who wants to be the designer of their own life. Anyone who has audacious goals that they want to achieve. Anyone committed or wanting to develop a growth mindset. We will study the works of BJ Fogg and James Clear to guide us in the formation of new habits. This group will meet over Google Meet.
Natural Remedies and Nutritional Healing
This is a group for anyone interested in staying healthy, getting healthy, and healing from illness or disease by using natural methods and nutrition such eating Raw and Vegan (whole plant foods), and by Juicing and drinking Smoothies, I am starting this group because so many of my friends and family members have had serious diseases like cancer and pre or type 2 diabetes. I would like to learn what others know and I would like to share what I have learned about healthy nutrition and natural remedies.
Healthy Mind - Healthy Body - Healthy Relationship
This is a group to help you develop a healthy life: From a healthy mind, to a healthy body, to a healthy relationship.
Everything starts out with the mind. If you don't have a healthy mind, your mental or emotional issues will likely affect your health negatively, and prevent you from having good relationships, too. A cheerful attitude can also make you look and feel younger. Therefore, the first thing to do is to improve your mind. In this group, we will talk about the key points of how to improve your mental health.
Your body can be improved in many ways, such as by better eating habits, sleeping habits, and exercising.
To have a healthy relationship, you have to know how to recognize whether a person is the right person for you or not. You also must maintain excellent communication with this person. In this group, we will talk about knowledge and tools to help you with both of these.
We will have regular, free meetings on Zoom, and our meetings will be led by an expert with over 20 years of experience helping people with communication, relationships, and mental health.
See you at our upcoming meetings, and let us improve our lives together!
This group is brought to you by the Dianetics and Scientology life improvement center located in Sacramento, California.
Wim Hof Method Meetup Bay Area
San Francisco, CA
Be happier, healthier, stronger.
I invite the Greater Bay Area community to join me for an introduction and or continued journey in the Wim Hof Method. I am Chuck McGee III and I am a certified WHM instructor and have studied the method with Wim Hof. I am passionate about teaching, instructing and of course practicing the method myself.
Watch more on Wim Hof here
If you already are familiar with the method, welcome!
For those of you of you who are new, the WHM is built on three pillars: cold therapy, breathing and mindset/focus. What that means is that through commitment and patience towards practicing cold exposure and specialized breathing techniques you will change your mind and body in ways that will amaze you! Some of the benefits of the method include:
· Increased energy
· Better sleep
· Heightened focus & intention
· Improved sports performance
· Reduced stress levels
· Greater cold tolerance
· Faster recovery
· Increased creativity
Read more on the method here
This meetup group is to bring together anyone interested in practicing or learning more about the Wim Hof Method. We will offer introductory events, day-long events where you can go more in depth and longer adventures as well!
In these events we will be exploring the WHM breathing, the mindset & focus and of course finish with a cold exposure in the elements. My hope is that everyone who joins the group will be able to develop a clear understanding of how the WHM breathing, mindset, focus and cold all integrate to allow practitioners to develop greater control over their health and well-being.
Our first event will be happening in early January 2018! Can't wait to see you there.
About Chuck McGee III
As a Type 1 Diabetic, I have a unique perspective on health. For two years I have been practicing the method, including direct instruction from Wim Hof. I have helped lead expeditions up mountains in the winter in Poland and swam in freezing lakes worldwide. I even built a custom cold tub at my house so that I can take ice baths every day.
The WHM has given me a stronger grasp of my health than anything else I have discovered. All people are equally deserving of the benefits the WHM could bring. It is my goal to connect to as many people as possible and be a part of the wave of social change that the WHM can help us achieve. My belief in the benefits of the WHM is palpable and my drive to spread this information to others is relentless.
I am willing to teach private events at any location on the planet. If you have the group, I will be there.

"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

From Social Isolation to Social Success
Fair Oaks, CA
I used to be an introvert. I was a loner. I had an isolated life. Nowadays, I don't know if I am a social success, but I enjoy operating meetup groups, I give heart-to-heart talks on various topics about life improvement, and I communicate with a lot of people regularly. I have never made so many connections in my life, and I have never been so happy. What did I do? How did I make this transition? What's my secret? Let's talk about that in this group. We will discuss in our group meetings how to turn yourself from being isolated to someone that loves people and communication. Some of the benefits are making more friends, no longer being lonely, connecting better with people at work, in life, and if you are single, maybe even find that special someone. Come to our Zoom group meetings. Learn how to love people and connect with them. No more being hermit! It's time for you to share who you are with the world! This group is created by the Dianetics & Scientology life improvement center in Fair Oaks, California.
Wisdom for Communication and Relationships
Relationships can make you or break you, yet it's a wonder that parents and schools almost never teach this subject very well. TV's and movies are usually not great sources of relationship education either, so where do we learn about how to develop healthy relationships?
Another missing piece of knowledge is how to get over painful relationships or painful memories. Are there healthy ways of moving on from a relationship that has ended? The answer is YES.
Are there ways to avoid the wrong relationship partner? The answer is YES.
Communication is another factor that we need to address. I think we all can agree that communication is one of the most important factors in a relationship. Are there ways to improve communication so you are more likely to get into a relationship? The answer is YES. Are there ways to improve communication with a partner? The answer is YES!
In this group, we will discuss the following:
- How to get over a painful relationship, breakup or divorce
- How to move on emotionally and start over
- How to recognize narcissistic people
- How to know whether someone is the right person for you
- How to overcoming co-dependency
- How to prevent a dysfunctional relationship
- How to enlarge your social circle and make more friends
- How to improve your communication with your partner
In this group, you will likely learn knowledge about relationships that you have never learned anywhere else!
This group is created by the Dianetics and Scientology life improvement center located 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!*** **No Show Policy** After 2.5 years and over 100 hikes, in January 2022, I will begin marking No Shows on Meetup. You can be a No Show for any reason and even contact me after the event (but the same day) and Not get marked No Show. But if you're a No Show and make No Effort to contact me you will be marked as a No Show. ***Four No Shows in one year Or Three No Shows in a row will be subject to being removed from the group.*** 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!
"Tough Love" Support Group
Come often and learn how to stand up for yourself when dealing with difficult people. This group is open to anyone that is living in a WAR ZONE and would like to live in peace and harmony. At this meeting we will read and discuss the book "ToughLove" by Phyllis and David York. You will meet other people having the same problems as you and you will find comfort receiving our support.
Marriage & Relationship Basics ... How Mental Health Relates
To gain new understandings of marriage or dating and the factors that make them work verses fail. Anyone who desires NEW and true information that really works should become a member and attend events. Our group has discussions that include input from attendees about what marriage is, the factors that when not followed, bring failure and the basic data that when followed, will help bring about success. We will look at current data and introduce new workable information that is not well known and needs to be, because it works. From how to tell if an "interest" could work through the basics of why we should have someone at all. Then we include what some of the challenges are and finally we'll address a hidden source and the biggest reason that can cause the best relationship to disintegrate. This source is mental health based, hidden and manageable with the tools of a growing modern technology. This is about what to DO about it! This group is sponsored by the local Dianetics and Scientology center.
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.
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.

Come hang out for a good yoga flow, and feel free to stay after to get to know one another. Please bring your own mat.
