"Every act has both good and evil results...the best we can do is to 'lean' towards the light"
--Dr. Joseph CampbellWhat is Jediism?
Jediism is a term inspired by films created by Mr. George Lucas. However, Jediism is not fiction. Our ways are based on ancient wisdom as well as modern philosophies. Our ways are modern adaptations of Taoism and Buddhism. We encourage activities that cultivate physical and mental health, such as martial arts and meditation. It is not required to be a warrior to be a member of the Order of the Jedi.

What Jediism is NOT:
Jediism is nothing like the "church of Jediism", this organization merely borrowed the name.
Jediism is NOT a Star Wars roleplaying community, as such, Jedi do not require toy lightsabers or Star Wars clothing.
Jediism is NOT an alternate name for your current religion. (see Jedi realism)
Jediism is NOT syncretist nor is it an inter-faith initiative. (see Jedi realism)
Jediism is NOT a Star Wars fanclub.
Jediism is NOT a theistic religion. this means Jedi do not belive or worship any deity, and that the Force, a central aspect of Jediism, is in no way interchangeable with any deity you may currently be worshipping.
