Conditioning and Jedi are totally unrelated what are you talking about

I guess sometimes abilities stick from the Jaunts, and I definitely remember teaching people about Conditioning when I was Jey. So I figure I should probably let you know that I actually am part of an order that does a lot of meditating. A slightly ridiculous amount of meditating.

[Some of it involves handstands but she's not going to pull that one out on random people]

What I'm used to is a little different and it doesn't all translate, but it's close enough that if anyone wants help meditating, I can provide it.

Oh, and it's actually Jaina.

[please make phillip meditate while doing a handstand.]

I'd like to try more, if that's ok.

Ok, cool! When should we do it?
darkhourdear: (Phillip [Slight smile])

[personal profile] darkhourdear 2016-03-04 02:49 pm (UTC)(link)
Ok! Um, I'm in the workshop, but I could meet you somewhere.
darkhourdear: (Phillip [Um...])

Ummm. Does my room work? If we really needed I could ask for an empty room, but.

[aaand if we want to action it up, Phillip will just be straightening up his room a little until she gets there- not that it has much chance to get messy, but.]

You're real.

[Her telepathic voice lacks inflection, making it impossible to tell whether this is an expression of relief, or surprise, or something else entirely.]

You aren't a Gorgon?

[It stands to reason. Most of them are human.]

...I was Riva. It's River in this skin.

They're homophones. Near identical sounds, different meanings.


We have humans.

[Just humans. Which makes having been something else entirely a strange experience indeed.]

We've explored some. Settled a whole new cluster. But the costs of deep space expeditions are prohibitive without the impetus of a dying planet behind us. There might be other sapient species out there. We probably won't meet them.

No. We haven't cracked light speed yet. There's no fuel that produces the requisite energy.

[There's a brief pause.]

We might be from your past. Or a past. Long enough ago that everything's lost in story.

Ours was Earth. Our ancestors left her behind nearly half a millennium ago. There's no going back.

[Even though her telepathic voice carries no particular intonation, she manages to give off the impression of curiosity.]

I was born on Osiris. We named our worlds for myths we left behind.

Core world. The spokes radiate outward, keep everything spinning to one tune.

The system's fragile. Subject to external control. Why cover the entire planet?

Hello Jaina, I'm Ambrose. [ remembering to get the proper introduction in straight away? madness. ] It's very kind of you to offer, goodness knows a lot of folks could use more meditation in their lives.

[ yes, fellow Travelers, he thinks you have no chill. ]

Myself included. I know a few focusing and calming exercises from home, but practicing more can't hurt.
wholeheaded: (they say you've gotta stay hungry)

[personal profile] wholeheaded 2016-03-06 04:53 am (UTC)(link)
Ditto. And exactly, I'll try and share even if mine are sorta custom-tailored for me.
wholeheaded: (and bored with myself)

[personal profile] wholeheaded 2016-03-16 01:15 am (UTC)(link)
More than likely. Are you setting up group lessons or more one-on-one?
wholeheaded: (2 you can't start a fire)

[personal profile] wholeheaded 2016-03-17 10:47 am (UTC)(link)
Oh, well then certainly it's better to practice on a small scale. Let me know where and when and we can give it a shot.

What is the use of meditation?

[It's not something Jade has come across before]

Focusing on what? And I didn't have a chance to interact much with the Conditioned.

Magic, then. Of a sort.
