With the new vaccines, the Jedi Gathering is looking even more promising!!! Over the coming months, we hope to fill you in on the workshops that will be hosted at this year’s gathering. For our first one, let us introduce Gabriel Calderon’s Workshop-

Encounter With Your Power Animal

A power animal is a guiding spirit. They can help raise your energy, improve your health, increase your mental capacity, provide protection, and explore truths. When you are particularly troubled about something, you can “speak” with your animal to gain guidance.

They primarily take the forms of mammals or birds. They can also be reptiles or fish. On rare occasions they take on the shape of a mythical animal. We have come to associate certain traits and characteristics with the animals. (Owls have wisdom, bears have strength, and deer are agile. For more on this I suggest Animal Speak by Ted Andrews). Power animals can come and go as they help us learn a life lesson. Once learned they are no longer required. However, there is one main animal that stays with you for life. This animal is your guardian and it’s that one we will discover in our journey.

For more information, check out JediFederation.org

Huh, I spoke a bit too soon, they still have them- though a bit more hidden than before. And they aren't called Rites anymore, they are just discussions areas to talk about the different ideologies. They DID get rid of "Pureland" though.

As a matter of record, ToTJO has since done away with the discussion boards that once had "Abrahamic Rite", "Pagan Rite", "Buddhist Rite" and "Pureland Jedi Rite". I never found out why, though I imagine it may have something to do with what Dina mentioned above.

Rosalyn and I are looking at the possibility of building a Christian study program for those that want to engage in it, but we're not sure if it'll actually get approved.

Temple of the Jedi Order have different rites I believe it's called that do pretty much the same thing for specialization.

I think it's important that a Jedi continues to grow and expand on their knowledge. It's probably no coincidence that the Christian portion was easiest to setup in terms of Force energy studies. If someone wants to consider working on other religion studies that should not be a problem as growth is encouraged, IMHO.

Before the TOTJO/TOTJF split, the picture below was one of the logos we used, and there were a lot of discussions about different religions and Jediism working together.

Thank you for the feedback. Looking forward to more.

Yeah, Dina makes a really good argument. I remember those "I'm a pure Jedi" discussions...

Hello everyone!

I have started using kiatsu more and more since moving to Japan...when out hiking and camping in the wilds, it is an invaluable resource!!

Thoughts?

I don't like the idea of labeling people as 'christian jedi' or 'jewish jedi' or 'pagan jedi' on the forum. Here at the temple we are all 'Jedi'...isn't that enough? Study other religions of course, talk about your backgrounds, sure, personal preference and all, but here at the end of the day we are simply Jedi. Let's not start the 'well I'm a ___ Jedi, so I know more about ___ than you do' or 'I'm a pure Jedi, so I'm a better Jedi than you' schtick...I've seen far too much of it in my lifetime already.

There are advantages to having this, but something I'm worried about is that it will alienate those who are non-Christian. At Force Academy, I created 4 courses for the Judeo-Christian studies while I had someone else try to pick up creating Pagan courses. This is part of the Mystic Training Program, where you get to choose 3 different theological courses in addition to the mandated courses for the Master's degree in Mystic Studies. But really it's taken us too long to get the Pagan studies together (of which I have 2, and need 2 more- we've had the Christian ones for nearly a year now). I've actually had people that came to me feeling uneasy because we only had the Christian studies present, and I had to assure them we have Pagan studies coming.

So from my own experience on the topic, if you make space for Christian Jedi, you need to make space for other religious Jedi as well. I'm not sure what the predominate alternative would be here- I choose Pagan because I use to be one and can come up with material on it. But I've also got plans to create at least one for Buddhism on the 8 Fold Path, and I'm trying to figure out if I can find something relating to other Asiatic religious groups (Shinto, possibly something from Korea, and maybe something out of China).
