His name keeps coming up this year, so today I went and picked up "The Wim Hof Method" at Barnes & Noble. :)

As JediKaren noted in the chatroom, she will be hosting a memorial service on Zoom, this Saturday (18 September) at 12PM EDT. I wanted to make sure that you all had the details.

The link for the Zoom Event is below so you can add it to your calendar.

And the link to the Facebook event is here in case you want a reminder via Facebook for when it's about to come up.

I've been here for over a decade....and this is the first I realized I could change the themes..... lmao. Admittedly, I'm not a fan of any. Zetagenesis is a bit easier on the eyes than fiblue3d- though that could be related to the immediate contrast against WF_Terra.

Primarily, my concern with the layout (if Todd ever gets a chance to look these over) is that there's a lot of information all over the place. Instead of a square for searching, a search bar is less clunky. Instead of a square for who's online, you can include that as a line in the footer. A lot of my issues are with the left-hand menu that could better be inside of a sandwich menu and spread around the body of the forum.

I wanted to share this here. I feel that it’s an important topic. If you have any other tips you’d like to add, please do! :)

Over the last couple of weeks, Nakis, Rosalyn and myself have been running an initiative called “Jedi Community Action Network” or “Jedi-CAN” for short. It’s not really a new thing, Rosalyn came up with the idea about 7-8 years ago and she and I have off-and-on tried to get it off the ground. This year is different because we have more support than we ever have, and ideas are flooding in. And with Sarah’s help via Ashla Cafe, we’ve been able to start working on the first team: The Ashlanae Force.

All the teams are open-volunteer. What makes this one unique is that it is the only one which specifically relies upon the Force to help others. It’s the Distance Healing Team. On the surface, it seems simple enough, but in reality there are things Rosalyn & I found that we take for granted in terms of Responsibility as Force Healers, and today I want to address these points. Here are our 5 tips for being Responsible Force Healers.

1) You need to learn to self-discipline.

At the heart of all the tips I will be giving you, is discipline. Without it, you can get lost in the chaos, rendering yourself ineffective as a Force Healer.

2) You need to let go of your emotions.

We are not saying that you need to be an emotionless void. That’s not what the first line of the Jedi Code means, in fact there’s a reason that the alternative to the traditional code is “Emotion, yet peace”. That’s the aim: Peace. The most basic Jedi Code teaching is that our emotions can cloud our ability to do anything.

In our emotional states, we give what we think is needed, and that may or may not be appropriate to the person you are trying to help. Furthermore, your emotional energy mixing into your Force work can impact the person in a negative way, if you’re not careful.

3) You need to let go of your attachments.

One of the Missions we have done up to this point included the Surfside Condo Collapse. It feels cruel, and trust me I feel that way too, but as Jedi, we have to remember that the last line of the Jedi Code acknowledges that there is “Death, yet the Force” (or “There is no death, there is the Force”, if you prefer). This was particularly important to remember with regards to the collapse, because the people a Force Healer could have encountered may have been those whom were on the verge of death and needed comfort to transition. Our attachment to keeping people alive may increase their suffering, especially if the Force has already communicated to us that they are going to pass on before anyone can reach them. When we move to help, we have to trust what the Force tells us about the situation- not what our emotions or attachments want to see happen.

4) Consider attending a live Healing.

Even if you have all 3 above nailed down, we never fully know our responses to the very specific situations we may find ourselves in. Sometimes we don’t know how attached or emotional we really are. Being in the room with someone who is trained in mysticism that can lead you out in an abnormal situation can prove invaluable.

5) Have a glass of water available.

Energy work can take a lot out of you, especially if you’re giving it all you’ve got. It’s not unheard of for practitioners to feel dehydrated afterwards.

Oftentimes we talk about about the Code in a practical way, but we forget that they are both also useful tools to inform our ethics in terms of using the Force.

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.

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