i understand yr terminology problem here.
people will generally share more spiritual things with u once u get to know them better.
so u have to get used to more small talk first, then the spiritual stories will come out.
there is this big effort to avoid pride in orthodoxy, which is hard to understand at first if u come from one of those protestant churches that force u to make every conversation into a 'mini preach' or to go in depth into 'miracles i have seen close up'.
i have actually heard of more miracles happening in the orthodox church than when i was a protestant, but people are shy about this, so it took many months before i got into spiritual talk with my friends. we feel that if we orthodox were to talk about spiritual stuff with just any passing person, we could fall into pride. eg. we would feel like we are boasting if we mentioned how well we meditated on the sermon (i have no problem using the latin term!) or if we discussed what miracle we saw. we will talk about these things after we get close to people, trusting those people not to 'boast' on our behalf.
eg. there are a few monks and other holy people who, even today, are given the gift from God to travel spiritually very large distances and come back. but people will not say who it is who did it, they will tell their friends 'one of the monks from there did this or that'. the more shocking the miracle, the more closely the secret is kept. secrets tend to 'come out' after the respective person has passed on, and then they become known more widely. u can send p.m. if u want to discuss this more.
remember the devil's sin was pride. also we want people's faith to be built on the Bible and the teachings of the church fathers, so we don't give such a major platform for discussing personal experiences.
the orthodox Christian faith is very much a large steady ship and not at all like an emotional rollercoaster.
so it's best to talk about places u have travelled, food etc, and then gradually over several weeks gauge how open someone is to 'spiritual chat'.
u can comment on things from the sermon or ask questions like 'i didn't understand that reference to the saints in the intercessions, can u explain it to me? (ask questions of someone u know fairly well as people are easily embarrassed by their lack of knowledge and they are more likely to judge themselves as ignorant, because of the avoiding pride thing).
ask in yr church if there are any Bible study groups. here it is easier to get into spiritual discussion.
but there is no rush. u will learn more by staying and meditating on what u hear in church than by trying to reason it all out straight away. remember the european 'renaissance' was largely an atheist thing, so it is not necessary for us to use our minds so much while our spirits are learning at a slower pace.
