Get Schooled In The Jedi Way!

Feel like traveling to Ireland for a one-day college seminar on becoming a Jedi?
On Saturday, November 15th, 2008, Queen’s University Belfast (that's in Northern Ireland, boyo) is offering a one-day Personal Development workshop called "Feel the Force: How to Train in the Jedi Way."

Doctor Allen Baird invites you to "[l]earn the real-life psychological techniques behind Jedi mind-tricks--mindfulness, instinct, serenity, empathy, influence, flow."

Examine the larger philosophical issues behind the STAR WARS universe--balance, destiny, dualism, fatherhood, fascism and bureaucracy. Discover the academic mythologist who inspired George Lucas’ story.

Though it's not stated in the description, devoted fans know that Lucas structured Star Wars based on the work of "academic mythologist" Joseph Campbell.

So, if you just happen to be in Northern Ireland this November, or feel like spending a wad of cash on a plane trip to the Emerald Isle for a day:

"Battle your dark side fear and aggression. Begin your own heroquest.
Lightsabers not provided!"
