Upgrade Your Communication and Relationships

Sacramento, CA

Upgrade Your Communication and Relationships

This is a group to help you improve your communication and relationships with people. It is amazing how much problems can exist between spouses, between parents and children, and how much stress can exist between bosses and workers. If you think about it, a huge portion of your problems are about relationships. It is fair to say that if you improve your relationships, you can improve your whole life.

In fact, if we enlarge the scope of our views, we can see that the entire planet is suffering from "international relations". Wars, you might say, are when relationships have gone really bad between nations.

If relationships is such an important and hard subject, how come there is virtually no formal education available for it? So, where do we learn about relationships? Shall we rely on parents to teach relationships? How many parents are relationships experts?

That's what this group is about.

We will have meetings to learn tools about how to improve your communication skills and relationships skills.

We will cover topics such as
- How to communicate with self-confidence
- How to avoid conflicts and stress between people
- How to improve love, trust, and understanding between people
- How to make more friends
- How to start a romantic relationship
- How to maintain and improve familial relationships
- How to improve professional communication
- How to communicate to a group of people effectively (public speaking)

During the COVID-19 lockdown, we'll meet online. When the lockdown is lifted, we will meet in person.

Please join this group and RSVP for an upcoming meeting right away!

Please call the group organizer, Tony, at 916-519-5287 for any questions.

This group is sponsored by the Dianetics & Scientology life improvement center.

Thinking While Drinking OC

Irvine, CA

Thinking While Drinking OC

Thinking While Drinking is a group for anyone in the Orange County area interested in discussing topics that will exercise, stimulate and expand your mind - all while enjoying a drink at different locations in our beautiful county.

For each event, the facilitators will come prepared with a handful of thought provoking questions and concepts on the topic at hand, we'll see what everyone has to say and go from there... 

We are not suggesting that life's difficult and fascinating questions will be neatly answered during our meetups nor that any sort of professional therapy or dogma will take place. This is just a space to meet other curious, sociable and open-minded people in an atmosphere of exploration and enjoyment.

Please check out our Frequently Asked Questions page for more group info. To see a list of every topic we have discussed hop over to our Topics page and every place (pre Covid) we have visited is on our TWD OC Chapter page.

Last but not least, our group is run entirely by volunteers and your donations go a long way to keep us afloat. Help support us by contributing to our Patreon or buying a custom TWD T-shirt or pint glass.

Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you (online for now) at an upcoming event!

Our Cosmos

Irvine, CA

Our Cosmos

Our Cosmos is a science advocacy group whose purpose is to promote community engagement and interest in the Cosmos and to foster intellectual curiosity.  Activities include exploring the fields of science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics (STEAM).  Our Cosmos encourages the growth of rapidly expanding enterprises and products that will advance knowledge, benefit society and improve the way we live.  It was inspired by the world renowned late astronomer and science popularizer, Dr. Carl Sagan.

The primary focus is through an edutainment (education and entertainment) platform; e.g. stage venues, lectures, hands-on exhibits, and tours of geological/archaeological/astronomical sites.

Most activities are centered in the Orange County/Los Angeles greater metropolitan areas.  This Meetup was designed to create a real, face-to-face community.  Friends and family are always invited except for certain events due to space limitation.  Our Platform involves meeting real people and doing real things in the real world. 

One Last Thing!

The goal is for each event to be interesting and memorable for everyone.  Some events require reserving places for those who have RSVP'd or meeting at a specific place so that we all go as a group.  If you are signed up and do not show up, you are a No-Show.  If this is a habit, you may be blocked from signing up for some events or even removed from the group.  Generally we only allow two or three No-Shows before doing this.  We ask that you please be responsible and communicative so the rest of the group does not end up waiting for you when you aren't coming.  No-Shows include last-minute cancellations for events with waiting lists.
