Fun and Depth - a group to feel at ease in London, the group I started for young professionals who are fed up with feeling challenged and lonely in London.
About two weeks ago I had send out requests for help to many of my friends and contacts, and started experimenting with ways of creating visibility: I signed up to meetup.com and posted on gumtree etc.
And ... nothing ... for a little bit I thought, "Hmmmm, looks like I have to start over."
It turns out that meet up takes a week to check your group profile. It was the quiet before the storm.
When the meetup group went live, things quickly changed !
Every few minutes a new person joined the group or somebody RSVPd !!
By now there are 50 peeps in the group (see image below) !!!
I can tell you, I was over the moon and slightly spaced out by the effect, I had caused !!!!
And I am so grateful, that I have hit a nerve with Fun and Depth! (five would just be too much)
Now, with so many people interested, but only 12 seats available in the pilot, I am faced with making sure that the right people know, they want this and it is easy for them to sign up.
Quality and commitment for the first 5 events not quantity are important to make this a group where we all feel safe enough to be ourselves (we'll open the doors for drop ins in July with the picnic series).
So, thanks to my own coach, who had this brilliant idea, everyone who is interested has a chance to get a taste before they buy this Wednesday:
What: A pre-meet taster evening - to get a first impression of each other and me, to get an overview of the 5 event pilot series and to hear my vision for this group, learn more about why I am doing this and what else I am doing.
You also get to have your say and can inspire and shape what we'll do as a group.
It will be playful and free form and I'll have a lovely helper hold a registration table for those of you who are ready to sign up (80 pounds for the pilot series, money back guarantee, if you don't like it)
When: This Wednesday, 24th April 2013 from 19:30 - 20:30
Where: yet to be announced
How can you be part of it: RSVP with the Meetup link below or send me an e-mail.
RSVP on Meetup
Or if you are ready to commit and do want to make sure you are not missing out on the Fun and Depth Pilot Series
Last but not least I am now proudly showing off my 50 Manamanas below! Thank you!

I love how Antidote London, calls itself "The Antidote for Urban Life" - They offer singing, dance and play to their members and attendants and are just brilliant if you ask me. Go check them out: http://www.antidotelondon.com/
Fun and Depth - a group to feel at ease in London exists for the same reasons, we need more variety and something different in our lives to feel well, connect with other people and let go of work.
Come along if you want to:
- Beat loneliness and feeling lost in London.
- Meet like minded people and make friends. Connect at a more authentic level.
- Discover more about yourself, what you want and where you are headed in life.
- And not to forget: have lots of Fun!
"Fun and depth - a group to feel at ease in London" is for young professionals and expatriates (23-35 or young at heart) who have come to London from all over the UK, Europe and the world and are hit by a big slap in the face.
You could call it culture shock, but I guess in the end it is mainly overwhelm with this city's pace, anonymity, competitiveness and diverse sensory influx (smells, unseen visuals, noise, living conditions etc.).
This community is an antidote to those challenges, an invitation to a journey of knowing and appreciating yourself more and a way to find community and friends who are real and authentic rather than shallow chit chat friends.
We start this group with a series of 5 after work events on Wednesday evenings. The first being on May 1st and the last on 19th June.
Come join. Inquire in an e-mail and find out more by doing the following:

It was probably three months ago, when I woke up on a Sunday morning and I had my head full of the entire outline of a programme I could run, as if I had just dreamed it up.
I put it on paper and committed to making it happen.
Now it is online it has a home on makeyourselfhome.co.uk and people can actually sign up for it. How thrilling!
It brings together a like minded group of people with the aim to feel alive and at ease in London, make friends and have fun and action as well as depth and reflection along the way.
As a real antidote to London's anonymity and competitiveness, we get to move, be outdoors and be silly, when we want to.
You can find the event outlined in the events section of this page or by following this link: Fun and Depth - a group to feel at ease in London
And if you like what you see there, go ahead and book your seat in this exciting new group journey. All brave adventurers welcome!
The sister website to authenticitycoach.co.uk is now online!
My second giving birth to a website and I am starting to become an html wizard. Well, maybe I am exaggerating, but I enjoyed coding some of the simple changes of my theme like a child in a sandbox.
And I am entirely grateful to my cousin who helped me out whenever my alarm bells of incompetence rang.
Now you can go and view it here by clicking on the link under the image:
Check out the beauty and then give me some feedback!
It certainly marks a moment in my business when I am going out there with new products and services for young professionals in London and the world. I am proud of myself. Hope you like it too.

Today I am celebrating, because I completed the Nia White Belt Intensive Training This Saturday.
It was a fabulous experience.
I feel energised, happy, healthy and strong. Nia has given me a new lens to look at myself and my relationship to my body. I walk different now and my body clearly tells me off, when I've sat at my computer for too long.
This picture is a little taster. Also have a look at the pictures I published here.

Gosh! I am so excited to be learning the Art of Nia in the London white belt course coming up.
This life coach is upgrading her tool kit !
I have found 4 potential gyms in London Victoria, where I intend to bring it to. And with a bit of luck and the gyms liking what I have to offer, I will soon get bodies, minds and spirits moving :D
Watch a great portrayal of Nia:
