What we’re about
Welcome to Singles Odyssey's Meetup Group, a group catering to singles, newly single people, and almost single people ~grin~. We are all about singles! Are you looking to meet & socialize with other singles in the area? Our group is filled with friendly, genuine, sociable, warm, happy and fun loving singles ranging in age from late 20’s to 50’s. It would be a pleasure to have you join us. Anyone over 21 is welcome. THE MORE THE MERRIER!
We host a variety of singles events, giving singles many flavors of venues to choose from, nightlife to car shows, from Long Beach to San Juan Capistrano, and have been hosting fun singles events catering to single people for over 5 years and will continue to do so. These events usually draw anywhere from 20-600+ friendly and attractive singles. Our events are hosted to offer you the opportunity to meet, mix, mingle with other singles, make new friends and have fun with the possibility of meeting that “special someone”. We cater to the singles in the So Cal area. Our events do not have a meat market or a pick up bar atmosphere.
We cordially invite you and your single friends to become members of this friendly, fun loving, social singles group. The purpose of this group is to make and build friendships as well as personal relationships.
For the FULL Singles Odyssey Experience go to www.SinglesOdyssey.org. You can directly access all of our on-line resources from there including YouTube Videos from our events and more.

- CARDIO / GRATITUDE SOCIAL BEACH WALK/HIKE – CDM BEACHES – SHERMAN GARDENS VISITInspiration Point, Corona Del Mar, CA
Sunday 8:30 – A fun crowd favorite. Change up the Sunday routine. Start the week with a combination of Cardio and Gratitude in a meditative beach hike with likeminded people on CDM beaches to Sherman Gardens, an amazing botanical garden. Open for all levels - great for first timers, shy people, expert hikers, introverts, extroverts, and YOU! Elevate your heart rate, socialize on the move, raise your better feeling vibration, and meet new people.
We go to Little Corona Beach first and a restroom break. Then we come back by Inspiration Point on the way down to Big Corona Beach.
GRATITUDE & CARDIO
The better you feel the more you allow. This is a safe space with supportive and easy-going group of casual, happy people. This cardio walk encompasses all the short hills, stairs, sand, and beauty of the Corona del Mar beaches. The group pace will be a purposeful trudge and you can go at your own speed – slower or faster. The route is designed for all levels and Included in this walk is a visit to the stupendously beautiful Sherman Gardens. https://thesherman.org/ (Tickets $5.00 – please have a $5 bill rather than a CC – Makes for speedier entry)
THE SCIENCE OF GRATITUDE
Research shows you can’t be stressed and thankful at the same time so when you combine gratitude with physical exercise, you give yourself a double boost of positive energy. You flood the brain and body with positive emotions and natural anti-depressants that uplift you rather than the stress hormones that drain you.
GRATITUDE*: Acknowledging the good already in your life allows us to truly know love, and continually fill our lives with awe, beauty, and satisfaction.* – Rev. Keith Horwitz - The Soul Center - Every Sunday leads Group Guided Meditation at 10:00 meeting at Corona del Mar Youth Community Center 3000 Fifth Ave. Corona del Mar, CA 92625 https://www.soulcenteroc.com/
