What we're about

Although many (but not all) of us are Star Wars fans, being a Jedi isn't about occasionally dressing up or having fun with lightsabers. A Jedi is someone who through their own will and spirit strives to be a stronger, better, and more helpful person to the world. "Utilizing the truth in fiction", we strive to follow a path inspired by the fictional Jedi in Star Wars in our real lives.

Our meetings cover a variety of types of training, including martial arts, meditation, energy work, philosophy, healing, charity, and other topics a Jedi knight needs to understand, as well and building community and just enjoying each other's company. We also don't just sit around watching films and reading books; we go out and offer our services where they are needed. California is a large state, so we have Organizers for both the North and the South, the North being centered in the San Francisco Bay Area and the South being Centered in the wider Los Angeles Area. Let us know where you are from so we can try and bring meetups to your area!

The Book Exchange this year is for show-and-tell-style recommendations! Please pre-select a book or piece of media you read/consumed this year and be prepared to give a little 3-5 minute summary of why you loved it and think others should check it out. Ideally this is a book that is in some way helpful or related to the Jedi path, but if it's just something fun and rad, that's great too! (Note that no one is required to have their video-camera on! Voice chat or just typing is also fine. To prioritize quality Jedi time, we are hosting only three workshops this year, slots to be finalized later, so keep an eye out here to see what workshops are what days!

Giving back to the community is an important part of being a Jedi, and I'd like to make this a regular thing for the group. What kinds of charities (or specific ones) would you guys be interested in donating your time to?
