UK University Offering the Following Course: “Feel the Force: How to Train in the Jedi Way”

September 12, 2008

The UK’s first Jedi course teaching personal development through a Star Wars syllabus will open to students at Queen’s University in Belfast from November.

According to its publicity material, the course, Feel the Force: How to Train in the Jedi Way, teaches the real-life psychological techniques behind Jedi mind tricks.

It also claims to examine the wider issues behind the Star Wars universe, like balance, destiny, dualism, fatherhood and fascism.

No prior qualifications are required and the blurb informs students that light sabres are not provided.

As the election heats up, 1 question remains: Which Star Wars character should you vote for?

Jedi Gym

July 8, 2008

Former swordplay trainer to the stars and Star Wars fanatic Jeremy Flynn recently opened “Jedi Gym”, a fitness center in Torrance, CA where members channel characters from the Star Wars film series to work out, meditate, and improve their lives.
“Star Wars is all about the Hero’s Journey, and so is working out,” says Flynn, ” you leave home, battle your demons, and hopefully return home stronger.”

Flynn is frustrated with his students’ lack of commitment and focus, but when a 7-foot man in an incredibly authentic Darth Vader suit arrives at the gym, Flynn thinks he’s found his dream student.

Instead, Flynn and his students learn, first hand, about how powerful the Dark Side can be…
