Hi, so if your son lost a brother-- did you lose a son? A stepson? I'm so sorry.

I took a lot of influences from Buddhism too. I was going to the practice centers for a while, but ultimately I decided the tradition was just a little too cold and impersonal for me. Intellectually I liked it, but emotionally something was lacking. The group I'm trying now is a Religious Science church, but the speaker seems to have a lot of influences, including A Course In Miracles, Taoism, Zen Buddhism, and various pop spirituality authors. Some of the original religious science teachings from the 1940s are kind of off-putting to me-- but so far I'm enjoying the services. Have not yet gotten very involved. I think I may balk at actually joining, since I'm afraid of being pressured to tithe, which I'm not comfortable doing. I may try some of their study groups.

I also meant to try some Unitarian Universalist groups. I really like their philosophy the way it's presented on some web sites I've found. So far though, I haven't made it to any of their services.

It would be nice to find a group where I equally like their teachings and the people. I've spent time in groups where I liked the people, but took the teachings with a grain of salt. I felt like I had to watch myself though, and kind of hide my true thoughts about it.
