Anyone Else Doing Quareia?
« on: March 27, 2019, 12:00:58 am »
Is anyone else doing (/thinking of/trying out) Quareia? I started last week and could use some community. I know they have their own forums but I'm not on them yet, plus friends from the outside would be good.

(I did notice that there's already a thread on the front page of this subforum about Quareia, but it is 4 years old and the OP hasn't been active in as many years)

Tangential: Starting a new thread, in those circumstances, is entirely sensical, yeah. Reviving the old one could probably have also worked; we don't have a hard-and-fast preference - but, I very much appreciate you noticing those factors!

I might bookmark it to look into in the future, but at the moment I'm doing a vocational course at work, an 8 week Critical and Logical Thinking online course and the Bardic NoD course so definitely can't take on anymore learning right now.

Have you joined their forums now?  If so, how do they seem?

Hi Scales! I joined both Quareia and the Cauldron rather recently. Your post actually inspired me to take a look at them. Thanks for that!

They have a pretty interesting setup. I'm finally moving on from the meditation module and continuing on. Just got back into school and kinda in a similar state to PerditaPickle. I'm also working on other courses and projects besides this. My magical studies have been severely neglected as of late. Which is something I wish to change. So far, I like the meditations and am glad to have them added to my day.

This is kind of an aside, but I also found a reddit for Quareia. Doesn't seem very active, though.

Not on the forums yet, it says you should be done the third lesson, and I'm only almost done the third lesson (you're supposed to do at least 10 sessions of a visualization exercise and I've done either 8 or 9). Also I'm moving (just to the upstairs suite from mine, but there's a lot to do) kind of unexpectedly so I haven't gone out of my way to do it.

I'm about done with the 4th lesson (it's one you practice every week, so I can move on while working on it) but not super looking forward to the 5th because it looks like it'll mean having to go to a lot of places, and I have pretty bad social anxiety and agoraphobia. I also am redoing the tarot exercises from lesson 2 (readings for every room in the house, then changing things based on them), because I didn't get to rearrange all the rooms before moving, and I'd like to do it for this space as well anyway, so we'll probably be working on that at about the same time.

I've been neglecting some of my magic stuff too, that's part of why I started Quareia, because having some structure will help keep me organized, with exercises and goals and whatnot, and also help further some study that I might not do if it was just up to me to learn it.

I see! I'm really glad you brought this up. I deal with social anxiety and agoraphobia, as well. I'm currently homebound, but hoping that this year I'll finally break things open. I took a peek at lesson 5 and I'm not sure if that's gonna be doable just yet. Maybe by the time I reach that point I'll be able to. But hey, I'm only on Lesson 1-2 right now.

I really don't want to drop Quareia since I like the structure so far. However, I'm not sure there's much room for variation to accommodate my current situation. And I totally get that each thing has a purpose and you keep building onto those. For instance, the blessing of magical tools in nature.

BTW Hope things go smoothly with your move and travels.
