Are you questioning your religion? If so, tell us about your struggle. If you have been a nonbeliever for a while, how long has it been? How did you arrive at your nonbelief?

Grew up going to Christian school and had been "saved" several times by age 13. At age 17, I began identifying as an atheist, having never really believed what I was being taught. At some point I began learning a bit about Buddhism and in 2010, I began actively reading Dalai Lama's writings. I keep an "altar" at home with crystals, singing bowls, candles, etc. and I generally like this concept of gratitude to the universe, connective energy. I really love eastern faith systems for being un-faith systems; they're mostly philosophies based on reality and how you can deal with your situation, not get to some magical sky kingdom. Still, I don't align with any group.

Are you interested in connecting with others offline?

yes

Are you willing to contribute when you can through reasonable dues & freewill donations to help cover Meetup fees and other group costs?

sure
