Spiritually questing Chicago MeFite seeking Mefites' personal experiences with Unitarianism, Theravada Buddhism, Quakers, and neopaganism.

I'm a 32-year-old Chicagoan, and I'm trying to find a spiritual practice for my life that feels "right," the one I was brought up in no longer feeling right to me. Beliefnet had a few suggestions for me, and I'm curious as to whether any Mefites can share their opinions or experiences with these specific religions: Unitarian Universalism
, Theravada Buddhism
, liberal Quakers
, and neopaganism
. Things I should keep in mind — any best practices, any pitfalls? Any tips as to locales in Chicago in which someone could gain some exposure to these religions without fully committing to same? (I have no car, so suburbs are out — north side of Chicago highly preferred but not essential.) If it helps, I recently wrote this
in a comment, which seems to me to be a little bit of my religious/spiritual philosophy. Thanks in advance for people's commentary and suggestions.
