The mystic enters a meditation while focusing on a remote location.

For a brief period, they may see the area they are projecting to as though they were standing there.

You may perceive things as if you were standing at that Location. The effect lasts indefinitely but you must maintain Concentration to keep it up. You cannot perceive anything at your physical location while the effect is active.
