I was wondering... would taking a class on veritas  take up so much time that i would'nt be able to focus on school, or would it not conflict? If it would conflict, then i will wait until the summer before beginning a class. Thanx lots
In all things, I have sought clarity. I face the troubles and problems of life and death willingly. Virtue, integrity and courage are my priorities. I can be approached, but never pushed; befriended but never coerced; killed but never shamed.

To answer your question, It would prbably bot intefere with school.  So, don't be worried to take classes during school days. :)

My course is designed to have about an hour of practice time a day, plus about 30 minutes or so a day to submit progress reports and check the course forums for updates and new material.  It's up to each student when in the day to schedule those things.

I think Prophecy's course is probably a similar time commitment.

Yes, similar.  Once a week we are to send in a summary of that week's lesson, and we have plenty of exercises to practice at our leisure.  There is no set amount of time that we are required to practice each day.  Also, Instead of sending progress reports to the teacher alone, we discuss our practices in the discussion forums.  Whenever we do a lesson in the chat room, usually there is one or two conflicts, but the lesson is posted afterwards for those who couldn't make it, and for reference for the summary.

It's quite easy to work with.

This is just from a odd point of view, but i think it would be easier to just have real meets or somthin, cause ive takin martial arts before and it was in person, and i don't mean to speculate, but how would you take a class for psionics online? i tried it before and well, i don't know, it felt like somthin was missing ya know?

Location is critical for the martial arts, so the only meaningful classes are conducted in person.  Location is nothing for psi.  Watching someone else meditate doesn't help you teach them psi, and partner practices are no different in person or over the internet.
