In response to Jackie's request, I'll post this stuff on the messageboard soon, when I'm on a better computer that doesn't freeze on meetup.  For now, here's another group that has free events, plus an event invite, plus a private invite for any women who'd like to come with me & drive to a women's circle on 10/28:

Coed & women-only Games gatherings that take place after 9am & before 5pm; open to anyone to attend or post invites to their games gatherings.

<2>.  If you'd like to carpool to some of the many events I get invited to(re my previous note below) --& you'd like to meet me 1st at an event I hang out at, --here's the info on an event I'll be going to Sun Oct 26 doors open 7pm, event starts 7:30pm; $15 donation requested but noone turned away for lack of funds, its a wonderful easy-going community where diversity is celebrated:  Its a 'Sacred Circle Dance':  Live music plays while everyone walks festively or meditatively around in a circle sharing simple interesting symbolic sign-language-like gestures with a partner --while singing short simple Rumi-like songs, poetry, or chants(both in English & other languages), --then moving on & to the next person to again celebrate each other & life thru these gestures.  Prior experience unnecessary; movements, words and melodies taught before each dance.  At The Blankenship Ballet Company of Venice:  132 Brooks Avenue at Abbot Kinney & Main Street
Venice, 90291 (small parking lot adjacent or find street parking).  Open to both men & women.

<3>.  I've been invited to a women's circle 10/28, if you can drive & would like to go with me either meet me at the dance above, or call me at[masked] & leave your phone#.

I'd prefer people only called me, not emailed me, for I get so much email & unlike most people I'm not on email often so that sometimes I will miss your email & never know you've tried to contact me.

Best wishes,
From: Jackie Kelly <[address removed]>

Subject: [nightlife-868] Free Events/Resources/Groups in LA & Surrounding Areas!

Here are a bunch of free events, resources, & groups in LA:
LA & SoCal: Free Community Swap Gatherings, Really Really Free Markets(RRFM), & Free Creative Resources/Services list:  Everyone who wants to posts about gatherings where people bring things that they don't want & then take away what they do want --for free!  At RRFMs you don't need to bring anything at all( at these markets there are Costumes/Clothes, DVDs/CDs, Fruits/Vegetables from people's gardens, Games, Furniture, etc...)  Daytime & Evening gatherings + info on tons of other unusual free resources/services/etc.
Though the topic is 'Contra Dance' this group periodically posts about all kinds of free dances all over LA & SoCal. Occasionally this group also hosts free contra dances( Contra Dances have live music, great people, the dance is easy & requires no skill; --its kindof like square dancing but much more romantic, lively & hip!)
For people interested in 'sacred' community events:  LA & SoCal Community list for Sacred Circle Dances, Dances Of Universal Peace, Sufi-Dancing, & related dances & events: some events are free, some are by donation with noone turned away for lack of funds  Free Community organized & DJ'd Dance Party with free ballroom dance lessons & other activities:  Daytime & Evening.
Creative, ecclectic, women traditons, activity & sharing circle( the list is not very active, but the group is & will contact you if you join the list).  Also is similar.
There are people on this list that my friends & I started who are interested in finding out about more activities in LA & surronding areas of SoCal that start after 9 am & before 5pm Mon thru Fri, plus connecting with other non9to5 people!

I know about more free dances & gatherings than what I've mentioned above, so if you'd like to share info or carpool to something call me: I'm always looking for carpool buddies as I'm constantly invited to free intersting things but I don't drive!  

I would love to find out about, as well as invite people to both the following kinds of interactive activity gatherings free, as well as the dances described below:  Improv & other nonboard Games gatherings; Sacred/Ritual Circles; Creative/Art/Inspirational workshops & circles; Holistic stuff; etc!...  I especially like private gatherings/circles in people's homes & I would love to participate in more circles on the westside where we create/lead these things ourselves!

I would love to find out about more free dances( especially in the daytime, though eve is OK).  I'm especially interested in Bhangra Dance; Ballroom Dance; NewWave80sDarkWave; Contra; Witness Dance Circles or any kind of Sacred Dance especially Circle dance & Sacred Temple dance; Bellydance Jams( a friend of mine who is a drummer is trying to put together an ongoing bellydance jam gathering on the westside that will be by donation noone turned away for lack of funds, so if you're interested contact me).

There are 150 people in this group, but noone else has emailed anything yet, --there must be alot of creative people doing interesting things:  I'd love to hear about what events/resources/groups in LA or SoCal that you love & that are free!  I'll check the list every now & then, but if you have something that you think would specifically interest me, please call my 24hr voicemail( ***no text messages please!***):

Best wishes,
