On March 8 from 3:30 to 5:00, our order will meet for the 6th time. This meeting will be in Rockville, MD. (go to our homepage for more details and to RSVP). Basically this meeting will be for planning our training manual or course.
We will be planning our training manual - We want to think and plan in terms of the following three areas: (1) Philosophy and Psychology, (2) Practical Techniques and Exercises, and (3) Other Resource Recommendations (no need to re-invent the wheel). I will bring an outline of what I think this should look like, for others to comment on. You are welcome to do the same. The meeting will run from 3:30 p.m. to about 5:00 p.m.
Belief in a Universal Force, be it Energy, Chi, Ki, Prana, or the Force is more than just a fictional concept. The ways of the Jedi are ancient and fundamental. Its wisdom has always been there for those who sought it.
The Maryland/Virginia Jedi Chapter is not a role-playing group, nor is it a Star Wars fan group, although many of us are fans. This group is designed to bring together people who follow and practice the principles of the Jedi path in real life. Come explore the real life foundations on which the fictional Jedi were based such as Eastern philosophy, self-awareness, meditation, self-defense, martial arts, psychic development, energy cultivation, healing, volunteerism, and much, much more.
If you’ve ever been inspired by the Jedi in the movies, this is your chance to follow that path in the real world. At the Maryland/Virginia Jedi Chapter you can meet with others who know that life and meaning are more than meet the eye. Learn practical concepts and techniques to better yourself and those around you and bring your own wisdom to share with the group.
We have local Chapters throughout Maryland including Catonsville, White Marsh, Hanover, and Rockville Maryland, and now Northern Virginia. You can also check out the Jedi Resource Center / Jedi Gatherings Group (www.jediresourcecenter.org) if you wish to meet other Jedi on a more global scale.
Please come join us on this journey. Hope to see you at a meetup soon!
