Since much of my practice is with online sanghas through video chat and forums, Ive been craving a local one to sit with in person. The dharma punx mentality seems to hook me more than other sanghas that I've checked out. Even though I learn something from most Buddhist groups, I still often feel like an outsider. I really enjoyed the previous O.A.T.S. about death and vulnerability. It was refreshing to hear about death cafes, coffins and skulls within the context of Buddhist practice. I would definitely be interested in checking out the Oakland Death Cafe and meditate in Mountain View Cemetery as suggested for a group outing.
