I belong to 7 groups here, but like yourself, I do not spend a lot of time writing. My interest is primarily looking for local people in south florida to meet up with in non-competative, social interactions. We are Introverted Intuitive Thinking types, but we have a need for social interaction with others who recognize that life is a trip, and who enjoy talking about their discipline or the conclusions they have come to at the moment of our interactions.
Whereas we have gone out in the past few years to enjoy Krishna Das and Ravi and Anoushka Shankar, we do not actively seek out the darshans of teachers. My lady never pursued this practice, whereas I satisfied my desire for 'personalities' in the mid 1970s by visiting many different representatives: Swami Satchidananda, Sri Chinmoy, Pir Vilayat, H.H. The Dalai Lama, etc. Our meditation room has those 1970s mirrored closet doors, and I can always open my eyes during meditation if I need to 'see' a meditating figure. ;-)
