(The instructions for this project are found in a separate thread. Read this first. http://instituteforjedirealiststudies.org/forum/7-living-the-jedi-way/15678-group-project-list-of-jedi-skills-attributes)

This thread will be used to discuss the esoteric practices of the Jedi path: meditation, energy work, psychic development, etc.  If time were no issue, what skills would be beneficial for a Jedi to learn or have?  I will occasionally edit this post to add the suggestions added to this thread.  

Force Skills
- Personal understanding of the Force – Theory and Experience
- Experiential – Be able to:
-- Sense energy – own and others
-- Manipulate ones own energy
-- Basic understanding of healing self and others
- Psychic Protection
Shielding
- Chakras
-- Diagnosing blockages
-- Balancing
- Manipulating energy in objects
-- Sensing, cleansing, and imprinting
- Empathy
Intuition
Auras
Meridians
Chi development
Use of crystals in healing

Meditation with a focus on energy development or force skills

Esoteric
-  Archetypes and how they relate to the Force
-  Visualization or other way of sensing non-physically
-  Advanced meditations and energy work
-  Astral Projection
-  Understanding and finding Spirit/Force guides
-  Facing the shadow and healing
Personal archaeology - Not just looking at our pasts - but digging through it and sifting where we have harmful emotional pasts that yet effect us - and where we have positive knowledge - and how we came to it.
Psychic vampires
Past life experiences
Ridding of unwanted entities (physical and non)
The arts of power and how to wield them...
Other Types of Magi (force-sensitives) in the world... 
For lack of a better word.. magic(k).....  what it is and what it isn't    (mostly to promote cross-cultural awareness...  Though I could see a whole course on spell-crafting that is aimed not at the casting of spells, but rather decoding the ones you might find so as to actually learn something useful from them...)

Well just to put it here for a talking point, we mentioned Meditation in the Spiritual thread and it was suggested that it can be specific to the Esoteric (energy work part) thread.

Personally I think that meditation has a variety of uses and can be used in almost every scenario from energy work, to enlightenment, to working on trances so that your body can have more endurance.  For this thread I would think meditation would be particularly important for reaching out to spirit guides, going on visualization quests/journeys, and of course doing energy work.

I might also add, though I'm not sure if Esoterics is the right place... although there are esoteric qualities associated to it...    The Jedi Trials...  What they are, what to watch for, and strategies for coping.   :)


On the spirit work, I think its implied, but also in touching on Athais' items...   working with spirits/guides once you've found them  (various techniques of interaction) and how to rid oneself of unwanted entities.   Its a whole new world, the unseen one.   :)


The arts of power and how to wield them...
Other Types of Magi (force-sensitives) in the world...  
For lack of a better word.. magic(k).....  what it is and what it isn't    (mostly to promote cross-cultural awareness...   Though I could see a whole course on spell-crafting that is aimed not at the casting of spells, but rather decoding the ones you might find so as to actually learn something useful from them...)

Good suggestion Stryse.

I'll try to get these organized and in the first thread soon. My free time online is low at the moment due to training but it's a short course so I'll catch up soon.

It relates to truth, and intuition, and the how the Force can bring you insights into reality.  Literally it is defined as 'intuitive knowledge of spiritual truths'

However we can break out that intuitive knowledge into a series of stages where truths become increasingly less subjective.      It is, in a way, a system of checks and balances for the ego in dealing with intuitive knowledge; a means of keeping that intuitive knowledge in perspective.

I suppose it could also fit in the spirituality section, though we cover intuition (which is the more key word) under Force.
