    This is a great article concerning those who profess to being ‘Jedi’ — and follow as religion or as realists, the dictates of the Force. As one reads down the article, you will find many familiar names from the IJRS’s 20 years of posts/threads.

    Thanks for sharing! Always great to have something to direct more people towards the community.

    It was an interesting read. I appreciate the writers efforts to understand and deliver something thought provoking to the reader, but I feel either his editor or his style made it difficult to follow specifics for anyone really interested in learning about Jedi practices or being inspired by the article. The structure of the article is haphazard, as if many of the details were cut for space. The article mentions one of the Jedi referenced wrote a book, but does not give the title or discuss its usefulness for Jedi or non-Jedi. In the middle of describing a Gathering meditation event, the writer pops in that one Jedi told him the phrase “May the Force be with you” is basically like saying, “May air always be with you”. I just felt it could have been a better article, but I’m not a journalist, writer, or editor.
