Dearest Jedi and guests,

I hope no one minds that I open this spesific topic, but I struggle with several things and I am worrying about it for a while ehm... I really do hope that no one has problems with this request feel free to ignore it if you have no interest in it. If this thread would be not so handy, feel free to lock and delete it as I do not enjoy getting into trouble with posting weird topics.. ehm.. :unsure:

Assuming that this is potentially a very powerful and effective way of training, I found inspiration in Kyukushinkai ryu, that I used to practice alongside other Japanese material arts, the concept style is known as hyakunin kumite , also known as the 100 man fight challenge... :blush: For the Seminary I have to complete a set of chats with people. But I realize this is not enough for me as I am a fairly closed person.
As I am trying to push myself but keep failing because I am just too nervous and totally not assertive. How can I be a minister if I stay in my shell? Simultaneously it gives the community a better way of learning to know me, it might drag other people out of their shell too to seek help if I am able to finish my seminary one day. So I would like to ask the Temple for help, possible that it will be beneficial in more than one way. I am looking for a chat, at least but not limited to:

  • 1 person with a religion that is not Christian or Jewish;
  • 2 Jedi of this community;
  • 1 Jedi of another community (primarily).


  • If someone has interest, feel free to post it here in this thread and I will contact you. Please do not PM me about participation before I PM you if you want to participate as it is a good practice for me to PM others I guess...

    I am willingly to chat with everyone who has its interest expressed in this thread, even after I hit my required amounts of chats as I conciser it a practice for not only my seminary so to speak... the more the better, it will serve me as experience to be a better minister one day. :blush:

    Notice:
  • I will make a global essay of every chat for my Seminarium Journal;
  • It will be posted in my Seminarium Journal; (that is in the invisible section to everyone below the rank of initiate)
  • The chats themselves happen in the private chatbox option after we arrange a time to chat trough PM;
  • The chat logs will not be posted in public but might be shown to the Synod;
  • Notice that the chats are not scripted as in a normal interview and I have no list of questions.

  • May the Force guide us and shine with us all,

    ~

    Codex,

    I would be greatly appreciative to participate. This may very well be a chance for me to organize and place some of my thoughts better than they have been. to practice it through communication with another is will be productive, as keeping journal helps, but perspective is not single pointed. I will say I was raised Catholic......studied history.......became a Buddhist for a bit...........then settled on Taoism until I found my way here (still pretty Taoist). Let me know if I fit for what you're looking for I don't mind being recorded ect. and sent to the synod.

    In Peace,
    Tim

    I'm interested in helping, if possible. I haven't done a lot on this site yet (in terms of my journal) but I've been actively reading forum posts and looking at the community.

    I'd be glad to assist you in coming out of your shell too if you want.I could probably use some of that myself plus it would just be nice to have a chat.

    As an ex-Christian Jedi who has taken the mantle of Buddhism I believe I can be of help.

    The self-confidence of the warrior is not the self-confidence of the average man. The average man seeks certainty in the eyes of the onlooker and calls that self-confidence. The warrior seeks impeccability in his own eyes and calls that humbleness. The average man is hooked to his fellow men, while the warrior is hooked only to infinity.
