  1. IC: Zadred - Ga-Koro, East Fishery District Sitting down with Talli and Timak to enjoy more of their meal, Zadred was finishing the broth in her bowl when the matoran spoke up, prompting her to look up. "Oh, um, best not to talk with your mouth full I've found." She said in a very respectful and even apologetic tone. @Mel@Rahisaurus
  2. IC: Tirokk - Fowadi Gym "Erm... well, I only really just arrived on the ship so I'm not too familiar with it, but judging by the tour I was given earlier, the hold seems like it's pretty out of the way. People probably won't be heading down there unless they need to get something. Then again, it might be worth asking around." Tirokk slowly stood back up to his feet, stretching a bit again before offering Noka a hand up. @Wotz
  3. IC: Zadred - Ga-Koro, East Fishery District "That sounds like a good idea, yeah." Zadred stood up as well, sticking close while sipping the broth from her bowl and snacking on the chunks. @Mel@Rahisaurus
  4. IC: Tirokk - Fowadi Gym "Deceptively simple in concept, I know. But yes. That's pretty much all there is to it, focusing on your breathing. Trains mindfulness, calms the spirit. It's helped me a great deal in the past. Often the places your mind drifts are helpful to reflect upon after you're done meditating, to see what weighs upon you the most. At least, that's how I've come to view it." @Wotz
  5. IC: Zadred - Ga-Koro, East Fishery District Heading into the more Ga-Matoran populated part of town, Zadred recognized a few of the faces in the crowd, such as the greenhouse workers she'd interacted with on occasion, the fertilizer manufacturers she'd bought from. Others, not so much, as she hadn't really been to this part of Ga-Koro much in the past, both due to her travels keeping her away, and her interests mostly keeping her elsewhere in town aside from the occasional supply runs. Entering a seaweed shack that seemed identifiable only by a red glowfish lantern hanging outside, Zadred had a brief glance around to take in the familiar space, turning her attention to the conversation being held and the effect it seemed to have on Timak. She seemed surprised, unsure what to say as they looked to her, before another liner seemed to sink the Toa entirely into having to sit down. Accepting one of the bowls from Talli, Zadred sat down cross-legged with Timak, patting them on the shoulder reassuringly before taking a sip of her bowl of stew and broth, sighing appreciatively at the combination of aroma and taste that filled her senses as she picked out some chunks of fish to eat up with great appetite. "This is really good. My complements to the chef." She said with a radiant smile. @Mel@Rahisaurus
  6. IC: Okuo - Edge of Fau Swamp Itahi, in all their blue feathered glory, seemed unperturbed by the attention it was receiving, remaining at ease in accordance with its rider's calm. Okuo read Kanohi's words, nodding in understanding. "It certainly sounds like a harrowing experience to have encountered. I hope-" "Your bird is so pretty! Can I pet it?" Okuo turned to the Lesterin at her question, nodding to her while her companion wordlessly attended to it as she wished to. "Of course. I uh-" Turning back to Kanohi as he'd begun to work on some contraption strapped to his wrist, he looked back to Hakari with a simple nod and a smile while gesturing to his Kewa, before he then gently approached the Matoran vigilante, looking the grappling hook over curiously while refraining from Kanohi's personal space. "What are you working on there?" Itahi gently pecked at Lapu's wooden armor, picking out a seed lodged in there and devouring it happily. @Harvali@ARROW404@Snelly
  7. IC: Tirokk - Fowadi Gym The Toa did a few more reps, before finally putting away the dumbbell and stepping out onto the mat with the matoran. "Hmm... alright, start by sitting down, cross-legged." Tirokk explained, sitting down and crossing his legs in demonstration. "If you prefer to sit some other way, do so. Whatever position is most comfortable for you to stay in for a while." He explained. Then, he closed his eyes, and took a deep breath, his wide and chiseled chest expanding as he inhaled, before shrinking as he slowly exhaled. "Next, start breathing. Breathe deep, breathe out slowly. Now focus on your breathing. Breathe in deep. Breathe out slowly. Follow that sensation, keep your attention on it." He breathed deep again, and exhaled slowly, demonstrating to her with closed eyes before opening them again. "Inevitably, your mind will wander. When you notice this, return your attention to the breathing. Don't get caught up in where your mind went or that it wandered, just come back." Tirokk returned to his breathing, inhaling deeply and exhaling slowly, giving Noka good time to try it out for herself before finally he spoke up again. "Keep this up until you're ready to stop. When you are, lift or open your eyes slowly. Take note of the sounds in the environment. How your body feels. How you feel. What you're thinking." Tirokk opened his eyes once more, taking in Noka's form and her posture. "And that's it. That's the basics of meditation as I know them." @Wotz
  8. IC: Zadred - Ga-Koro "I'm an herbalist, I run a shop here whenever I'm in town, though I'm often away in either the greater Wahi, or in Le-Koro and its corresponding Wahi. Lots of different plants to be found on this island, so staying in one place all the time really isn't an option for me." Zadred explained, her staff gently pinging against the platforms as they made their way through the village. @Rahisaurus@Mel
  9. IC: Tirokk - Fowadi Gym "Ah. Well... perhaps. It's not very complicated, so I can certainly tell you the basics of it." Tirokk explained, shifting the dumbbell to his other hand to start doing reps with that arm.
  10. IC: Okuo - Fau Swamp Edge "Well hey, that's completely understandable. I honestly got lost all the time when I first transferred out here. Only reason I can navigate at all now is because of the bird's eye view my Kewa affords me. Oh, speaking of-" Okuo grabbed his horn, playing a short tune on it that carried up to the treetops, with rustling and the sound of wings flapping being prelude to a bright blue Kewa swooping down to land next to Okuo and the others. The Ta-Matoran reached out to pet it, reaching his other hand to grab some seeds from his satchel to feed the avian rahi. "This is Itahi, my trusted companion in the sky. I should be able to help you find the best route to Ta-Wahi if you need me to." @Harvali@Snelly@ARROW404
  11. IC: Tirokk - Fowadi Gym Tirokk raised an eyebrow at the question, looking up with an inquisitive expression as he continued his reps. "Share? How do you mean?" @Wotz
  12. IC: Tirokk - Fowadi Gym "Well... yes. But the discipline has spread over the island due to its applications. It's very helpful when you have... a lot on your mind." Tirokk responded, grabbing a dumbbell of considerable size off of one of the racks and sitting down on one of the benches to start doing some reps. After some consideration, the Toa spoke up again. "I'm Tirokk, by the way." @Wotz
  13. IC: Zadred - Ga-Koro "I certainly wouldn't mind it. Timak?" Zadred addressed, turning to the Toa with a curious smile. @Rahisaurus@Mel@ARROW404@Vezok's Friend
  14. IC: Okuo - Edge of Fau Swamp Mouthing out the words as Kanohi clicked them into being until he'd gotten the whole message, Okuo quickly nodded. "Of course, I'll help you in any way I can. Though I've got to wonder why you're this far West if you're headed to Ga-Wahi through Ta-Wahi? Are you going to be hugging closer to the Mangai on your trail?" @Harvali@Snelly@ARROW404
  15. IC: Tirokk - Fowadi Gym "Meditation. It helps to calm the mind and centre the spirit." With a quiet groan, Tirokk stood up to his full imposing height, before proceeding to performing various stretches with further groaning. "Of course, it's best not to remain in the same position for too long." @Wotz
