Jedi Realism

"Jedi Realist is a term meant to distinguish the Jedi of the real world from the Jedi of fiction, often shortened to Jedi, leaving the term Realist implied.

Jedi are people who seek to emulate the Jedi Knights as presented in the fictional Star Wars universe by embracing the Jedi's virtues and strengths and expressing them in the real world.  Jedi are called by the Force to direct their actions and passions in a direction that serves humanity, seeking to embody the principles outlined in the Core Values, and constantly pursuing self-development and training in all areas of mastery, including mental, physical,and spiritual."  -Institute of Jedi Realist Studies

Depth is dependent upon the individual. You choose how far to go down the rabbit hole. We adjust to individual student needs as best we can. You can always start a discussion here too.

Definitely.

This all sounds so amazing.

I don't think I'd do well to jump in, though. This is probably on a deeper intellectual level than I'd successfully be able to immediately get involved in.

But I'll definitely be observing. I'm planning on joining right now.

Absolutely. Will you consider taking classes? We're about to begin discussion on the Eckhart Tolle book The Power of Now with anyone who wants to join in. In the academy we're starting the first level of study on the Jedi code. And of course there are all of the other courses which you can learn more about on the website. Personally I'm excited to discuss the Power of Now. Time is fascinating, complicated stuff!

In a nutshell everything it stands for. To me, when I first watched it, it meant so much more than carrying around a lightsaber. They were the Peacekeepers. They were so intuned with themselves and their surroundings--the force. I loved it from the start. And, I do love a good lightsaber fight, but the whole reason behind Jedi being established and used in the Republic drew me. I'm glad to know that there is a whole site dedicated to the deep, actual meaning behind the Jedi.
