2021 is probably the best event location we've had yet! The cabin is located on a 63 acre Boiling Springs property and backs up to a mountainous forest. With a stream and waterfall on the property, the workshop possibilities endless. This property is owned by Tibetan Buddhists and is used for spiritual retreats. The property owners purchased this property after being inspired by Mai Pham's 2004 “World Peace Through Inner Peace,” event for His Holiness The Dalai Lama in Miami. Their goal is to see interfaith fellowship, which just makes this property that much more sacred.

We are working on setting up the Registration page, but we do have the prices figured out. Use this space to stay updated. :) Prices include Room & Board for the full weekend.

Adults [13+] $200/ea

Children [5-12] $125/ea

Infants [>5 ]. Free/ea

Campers $150/ea

Please Note: As of May 1st, prices increase by, $25 for campers, children, and adults (Infants will stay free).

Hey everyone!! The VJG discord is up. I'll take some opportunities throughout the day to get people aquainted with some of the features. :)

I'll be running a Character Development (for the Role-Playing Game) at some point today, but you'll need to join the Discord to see when I post it up for. After this announcement, I'll be moving all announcements to the Discord and Facebook Event Page. :) Hope to see you there!!!

This week Chris and I worked on the Role-Playing Game. We've got characters now! So what can you expect? A Jedi Isekai!!! For those that do not know what an Isekai is, it's Japanese for "Different World". Our characters are real Jedi form this world, with real jobs and real aspirations, and are suddenly swept away into a fantasy world...where you get to meet gods and goddesses worshipped around our world, and actually get to use magical powers.
The Characters were developed using real-world information, meaning you can actually look up information about where they live, what their jobs entail, and their hobbies. All of these Jedi are connected by the internet, and 2 apprentice pairs actually know each other offline.

This is just the introduction, but we'll be releasing their profiles over the course of the week. Remember, those of you that come for the Role Playing Game, it's first to come first pick- so if you have a character in mind, it's best to show up early and call dibs. ;) Oh, and for anyone that wanted to Blonde in a Black Dress? Sorry, that one's mine. Her name is Setanaoko...kinda hard to steal it from me, lol ;).

Chris, Aimee & I are working on getting the RPG together. So that we can just jump into the game, we're creating characters (with a complete background!) that participants can choose from- first come first serve when you arrive that first day. We're building 10 characters, and once they have them together we'll share with you who the are.

Although we are using the Genesys model, this RPG is built with the Jedi Community in mind. As such, our Game Master (Chris) may call on the player to justify their actions against the Jedi Compass (by the Jedi Community). Are you familiar with it? If not, you can brush up on what is written in the Jedi Compass here-

As for your website- I love your picture. :). But overall...there are massive problems with it.

Let's start with Language. I actually use to think the same way you do. But as I started diving into myths from around the world for a project called "The Jedi Sextant" (A meditative card deck inspired by the Fiction's "Jedi Behaviors"), I found out just how upset people are that their languages are dying because a more popular language in their area is taking over. Their languages are a core part of who they are spiritually and culturally. Taking that away from them is like taking away a part of their family. And while it may seem like it's just an older generation holding onto it, that's not entirely true. There are younger generations that are trying desperately to preserve their nearly extinct languages because they feel a loss of identity.

Information preserved in their myths loses something when they are translated over as well. So being able to have the original language intact allows them the ability to maintain that history.

If the languages are forced upon them, that makes us no better than missionaries that forced people to leave behind their gods and turn to the Abrahamic God.


On the topic of a One World Government. It's a great dream, but it's an unrealistic one. Every problem imaginable with the idea is present within the United Nations. It is because our values are very different from culture to culture. You would have a hard time overcoming the problem of extremes in Sharia Law, for example. And even if you managed to for the sake of government, you won't necessarily get rid of it at the local level where most problems take place.

That's not how it works. The Vaccine for an old strain of SARS wouldn't work for a new one. Case Study: Swine Flu was another form of Flu. But every year we have to develop two different Flu vaccines because we don't know which one is going to take, and neither did anything against H1N1.

The real question is- will they do the same thing this time around? Will they create a vaccine and then not implement it?
