Due to the lack of turn out and the generosity of Prophecy, I'm happy to announce the opportunity for V-Con, the second coming. Prophecy has offered to host at his place in florida for any of those interested. V-Con as usual shall be a gathering of minds for spiritual discussion/lesson, martial arts related activity, and any other fun you might be interested in. There will be room for camping or staying in house for those interested, and I'm sure there are hotels in the area. Since Prophecy will be hosting and due to the general location of the event there will be at least an attendance of 11 or 12 people without any extra attendance from those of you interested, so expect no disappointment from amount of attendees.

The date remains tentative, but generally we are looking at having the event next year or December of this year. Availability depends on you, so if you are legitimately interested in coming this time around, give us an idea of when you can and we'll work out the dates from there. See you there (hopefully)!

Everyone is invited, and even encouraged, to stay as long as they want at the house.  There is plenty of room inside for people to stay the night, and also a great deal of open space outside for others who would like to camp.  Since I will have a number of my students present, it will also be an excellent opportunity for people to be around others who are well established in a regular practice routine.  The only catch to staying the night is that our day here starts between 4:00 and 5:00 in the morning with meditation, and I will wake you up for it. 

My property is well hidden, very private, and far enough away from town.  Being loud, having bonfires, etc, is all perfectly fine as we will not have neighbors to worry about.  If everyone brings a little food, we should be good.

Ever moonlight as a snuff-film director?  :)

Maybe if you show up, Solstice, we can take such a career path into mind ;)

Wasn't the V-Con set for about august 5th or 6th? Which is, looks at clock, today. ... well, it was today >_>

Well, if it's for December then I should be able to get a better new job and start saving for then. Only problem for me would be when my own family decides to do our Christmas get-together.

Mastery does not occur when you've performed a feat once or twice. Instead, it comes after years of training, when you realize that you no longer notice when you're performing a feat which used to require so much effort. Even walking takes years of training for a human: why not everything else?

If it's in December, I may be able to come if it's during winter break, as I may have the funds to get there. Anything I should do in preparation?

It's Portuguese for 'lots".

It is Solstician for "I feel like making a random answer."

Try starting to wake up regularly at 4-5 is a good idea, it takes more effort than just an alarm. Also If I am able to get the time and hopefully someone to help me drive there I will be there. I can't wait to see what your house is like.

Thank you for inviting everyone who makes it to your house.
Hey, whats up?

Practice, read scripture, etc.... you know, only that which an aspirant should already be doing.   :)

It makes me grin to think I would be woken up to meditate.

Out of curiosity, do you lot do any sparring or things of that nature on top of your magical practice at the casa de Prophecy.

No.  Most of the students have a very tight schedule due to work, and with the few hours they have open I encourage them to meditate and practice magic instead of other things.
