【SF】Japanese - English language exchange at Online

San Francisco, CA

【SF】Japanese - English language exchange at Online

Hello, my name is Ryu😊  I am Japanese🇯🇵  I can speak a little English
My favorite food is Udon. (Japanese noodle)

This group aims to create online opportunities for "language exchange" in which "Japanese learners who can speak English" and "English learners who can speak Japanese" practice and teach each other's learning languages.
We are also considering holding it at the same time as Japan and other countries.

I don’t know if it’s correct ( because I can speak only a little English ) but I think that talking with someone is the best way to learn a language. In addition, I believe that we can discover new wisdom and values ​​through the opportunity to talk with people from different cultures.

Nowadays, it is not easy for us to go abroad.
But online, wherever we are, we can create opportunities for "language exchange" with each other.

I am happy that various exchanges will be born from here to all over the world.
I also want to create an opportunity where "global friends become more normal".

Let’s join and have fun👍.

こんにちは、僕の名前はRyuです。英語は少しだけしゃべれます。
好きな食べ物は、うどんです。
このグループは、「英語をしゃべれる日本語学習者」と「日本語をしゃべれる英語学習者」が、互いに学習言語を練習し教え合う『ランゲージエクスチェンジ』の機会をオンラインで創ることを目的としています。
日本や他の国と同時開催することも、考えています。

英語を少ししかしゃべれない僕が言うのもなんなのですが、語学の習得は誰かとしゃべることが、いちばんの近道だと感じています。更に、異文化の方達としゃべる機会をとおして、僕たちは新しい知恵や価値観を発見することができると思っています。

いま、私たちは国外に出ることが容易ではない状況が続いています。
でも、オンラインであれば、どこにいたって、互いに「ランゲージエクスチェンジ」の機会を創ることができます。

国を越え、さまざまな交流がここから生まれていくとうれしいです。
『地球規模の仲間がもっと当たり前になる』、そんなことを創っていきたいとも思っています。

ぜひ、ご参加ください。

Conscious Girlfriend: For Happy, Healthy Lesbian/Queer Love

San Francisco, CA

Conscious Girlfriend: For Happy, Healthy Lesbian/Queer Love

Conscious Girlfriend: We Help Lesbians & Queer Women Date Wisely and Love Well.

Welcome to our Meetup group! Conscious Girlfriend offers free workshops and teleclasses, many free articles and videos on our website (www.consciousgirlfriend.com) plus a variety of other offerings - including in-depth online classes and live weekend retreats - all focused on helping lesbians and queer women find, create and sustain the happy, healthy love we want and deserve.   

Our work is based on neuroscience, psychology, spirituality and other tools of transformation -- and it can help you find the partner of your dreams, and create the relationship you've always wanted.  

I'm Ruth L. Schwartz, Ph.D., and I co-founded Conscious Girlfriend with Michelle Murrain back in 2013. Here's a bit about the professional background that went into that: I have a Ph.D. in Transpersonal Psychology and have helped individuals and couples grow and heal since 2003. I also trained in relationship coaching with Gay and Katie Hendricks, authors of Conscious Loving and many other books, and with the Somatica Institute, which offers a pioneering, experiential approach to sexuality and intimacy coaching. 

But most importantly, I walk my talk and live Conscious Girlfriend principles every day in my own intimate relationship! I'm very transparent, not a "guru," but a real live person on my own growth path. I came out in 1982 and am completely committed to learning more about love, and loving in healthier and more intimate ways, each and every day -- and to learning what I teach, teaching what I learn, and supporting our community!   

About You

If you're a single lesbian or queer woman who's seeking a new relationship sometime soon...

If you're not sure you want another relationship, but you do know for sure you don't want any more heartbreak... 

If you know you're not ready now, but want help gaining skills and tools so that someday you can create the kind of deeply fulfilling, healthy love you've always wanted... 

Or if you're in a relationship now, and want tools and skills to make your love as intimate, joyful, harmonious and satisfying as it can be...

We hope you'll join this Meetup group, and take advantage of some of our offerings!

We are very compassionate and inclusive. If you identify as a woman and are interested in loving a woman, you're welcome (whether you're trans, queer, lesbian, gay, genderqueer, just coming out, bisexual, monogamous, poly, or however else you might identify.)   

For more information, check us out at www.ConsciousGirlfriend.com.

In love,

Ruth
