What we’re about
This group has many types of activities: Boardgames, Karaoke, Hikes, Dance, Theatre Outings, Sport Events, Metaphysical (Meditation, Tantric Learning, Reiki, Massage, etc.), Poker, Sharing Cooking & Baking, Movie Night, Improv Night, and Anything else you suggest.
Really! Suggest something!
And when it comes to Board Games...I am often asked "What kind of Games do you play?"
A pretty accurate answer to "What kind of board games do we play" is:
"Euro-Strategy games, as found on BoardGamesGeek.com."
That is not necessarily the most helpful answer, tho. The actual range of games vary from super-simple (learn in 5 minutes, play in 10 minutes) to very involved (learn in 45 minutes, play in 4 hours, takes a dozen games before you really "get it")...So, chances are if you think to yourself "I like playing board games"...you'll probably find someone here who likes what you like :-)
***Check our Calendar!***
There's so many events per month, it's the only way to know what's coming up! We're all busy professionals, normal people, who want to make the most of our time away from work. We want to do more with our evenings than just sip a drink and check out the cuties in a bar. We want to take a break from trying to hook-up and just have fun together. Since we're not focused on trying to hook-up, single people and coupled people and even N-tupled people can freely join in and we'll all enjoy greater fun.
Many Events are in private home venues, for a very relaxed and comfortable interaction. These events include food, drink, and always interesting people.
If you have an interesting event you'd like to run or host, please contact me (Paul++) and we'll find a way for you to run an event.

- Potluck & Board GamesJoy's Home, San Jose, CA
Let's have some fun!!
5:00 PM Join our Vegan (you can skip the meat for one meal!) Potluck. If you don't know what to bring, bring fruit or a salad or just call me for suggestions (no eggs, dairy, mayonnaise, gelatin, or meat). Raw fruits and veggies are great! If you want to share your snack with the hostess, keep in mind that I have several food allergies (Wheat, cinnamon, green bell peppers, water cress, parsley, and chocolate) that might prevent me from tasting your tasty treats. I usually supply gluten-free spaghetti.
6:00 PM Let's play! We usually play games like "Ticket to Ride," "Splendor," "Transamerica," "Rack-O," "Cable Car," "6 Cubes," "Take a Chance," "Blokus," and games brought by you and others. Please bring your favorite game to share with us.
5:00 PM - Potluck

(408) 223-7776. If you are reading this after noon, call to let me know that you want to come and what time you think you will arrive.
My place is across the street from an empty lot.
- Learn to Heal from the Pain of Past RelationshipsJoy's Home, San Jose, CA
I will help you to heal your heart by guiding you to let go of the pain of past relationships, by guiding you to accept what is, and by helping you to become emotionally stronger.
I will help you to perceive life differently so that you can avoid repeating the mistakes of the past. I will guide you to let go of all the barriers to success in all areas of your life.
I hold the class no matter how few students attend. You might get a private session if no one else shows up. No fee at this time.
The class is usually an hour and a half but could last a little longer if students have many questions.
If Wednesday nights are difficult, you could suggest a time and date and if I am available, I will post an extra Meetup event. I am retired so I could hold the class almost anytime. If you feel that you need a private session, please suggest a time and date and if I am available, I will give you a private session at no charge.
My place is across the street from an empty lot. Your GPS will say that I live in the empty lot. As soon as you turn onto Brigadoon Way, look for a place to park because you are in front of my home. Look for the "Meetup" signs on my door and my car.
I have been researching what causes stress and what to do about it for over thirty years. I wrote a book and began selling it in 1992. I edited it and reprinted it three times. I have been teaching Stress reduction classes for about ten years. One of my students suggested that since I had helped him recover from a difficult breakup, I should have classes specifically for that. I have helped many people with both stress and relationship issues over the years. I hope that you will join us soon.
- San Jose Stress and Pain Reduction Class and WorkshopJoy's Home, San Jose, CA
If no one calls to confirm the day before, I will cancel the class. Please be sure to call me at 408 223-7776 land line or 408 449-6506 cell phone.
I will teach you about the true source of your stress, how to reduce stress, and how to react differently to the unpleasant events that you experience. I will help you to see that you are more powerful than your emotions. Then, we will practice the technique that you have just learned. You will practice letting go of the barriers to your success and you will let go of unpleasant emotions. Students often report that the pain has "melted away." I offer to give Reiki to students as we practice what we have learned. Reiki is optional. Some students become so relaxed that they fall asleep. Please check out "Reiki" on the internet before you arrive.
I hold the class no matter how few students attend unless no one signs up by 5 PM the day before. You might get a private session if no one else shows up. No fee at this time.
If Wednesday nights are difficult, you could suggest a time and date and if I am available, I will post an extra Meetup event. I am retired so I could hold the class almost anytime.
