In 2014 Disney (after securing the star wars brand from Lucasfilm for a reported 6 billion dollars) announced the Star Wars sagas would continue with a further 3 movies. Like a lightning bolt from the heavens, I once more felt the power of the force awaken. I was excited and overjoyed by the prospect of the continued story of the Jedi and a final conclusion to the star wars story. All these years later, I had the same excitement and joy as a child experiencing the films for the first time. As I sat and reflected on the joy of my younger years when I first encountered the movie something dawned on me . . it seems these Star Wars films had a more significant impact on my life's direction than I had previously thought.
After leaving my corporate career, I moved to Vancouver, Canada, to begin my heroes journey of self-discovery. It was here that I explored multiply spiritual paths and ancient esoteric practices. It was here I took my first steps into a larger world and began the practice of meditation. I met a community of yogis and trained to become a kundalini yoga teacher. Upon returning to the UK after 3 years hiatus, I began training as an integrative transpersonal psychotherapist studying to understand the nature of early life wounds and the work of psychologist Carl Jung's work.
Through this work, I found many similarities to yoga practices and the way so the Jedi. Both the Jedi and yogis worked on developing elevated qualities and states of consciousness that would allow them to connect to a higher power. The yogis call this god, spirit, qi, and the Jedi know this energy simply as the force. Yogis like the Jedi spend years training and developing their inner capacities for the greater good of the world and the universe. Later through my reading, I found that George Lucas had indeed based the Jedi on ancient warrior traditions and eastern religious beliefs.
Inspired, I decided to create a workshop based on my two great passions, spirituality and star wars. I created yoga-themed workshops based on star wars' mythology, focusing on the battle between light and dark that rages within us. I was surprised and encouraged by the interest and joy people got from coming to these workshops. People found the concepts easy to understand for they had grown up with an intuitive understanding of the force and could now experience it as reality. I developed more workshops and explored themes that apply to our own life journies finding the wisdom and mythical narrative that people instantly resonated with. We delivered our training at wellbeing centres and yoga studios, yoga festivals. We presented our training abroad in France and Spain, where the ideas and concepts were delivered with translation, and still, the power of the force was felt. I continue to be inspired by the star wars storyline finding the same narratives we see in everyday existence. Our challenges in our human relationships, the struggles, the losses, love, inner-conflict and how we must master our negative impulses to avoid the pitfalls of the dark side of the force.
As Jedi warriors in the world today we don't have storm troopers to shoot or epic lightsaber battles on galactic Battle stations to have. Our modern-day conflicts are now with stress, insomnia, anxiety and depression have become our challenge as we struggle to find meaning in a world full of chaos and change. We are bombarded with information, and our nervous systems are overwhelmed, collapsing under the stress of modern-day living. In this information age, we don't know what to think or what to believe,. To combat this, we must develop our intuitive capacities if we are to successfully move through this dark age.
Becoming a Jedi requires the most serious mind, a deep commitment to self-development, inner transformation and a genuine desire to serve the world by becoming a guardian for peace in the universe.
at this time in history, We are being called to be spiritual warriors in service to the Divine. - with courage, determination, humility, love, and trust in the force, we can begin tackling the dark forces within and without . My role as a Jedi teacher is to provide some guidance, motivation, and help along the way based on my life experience and my own talents, insights, and lessons I've learned so far and continue to learn. I see myself as a teacher and student alike. Still, ultimately a fanboy of these beloved movies that bring people together regardless of background, age culture or sex. the hero's journey means that the learning never stops and the adventure always continues.

As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to be a Jedi. I always wanted to be a mystical warrior, a hero who saves the day. I grew up watching Saturday morning cartoons, devouring superhero movies, reading comic books and dreaming of one day in my own way. I longed to go on adventures, rescue a princess, defeat the dragon and bring peace to the land. But as the years passed the comics and toys were relegated to the loft, the thoughts of being a hero in a galaxy far far away faded. My new mission was to finish school, get a job and become a responsible adult in the real world.
So I used my warrior energy to finish college, go to university, and get a business degree. Armed with an education, I began working in the pharmaceutical industry as a sales and marketing executive. With great energy and enthusiasm, I went forth and achieved my goal, becoming one of the top-performing salespeople in the company. Successs and acceptance into the prestigious Academy programme followd. But something was missing. I was not happy. I thought achieving financial and career success would bring me fulfilment, happiness and victory over life, but it had not. Over time things got worse, and I fell into a dark pit of despair, life had lost all meaning, I had no purpose, I experienced what I would later find out to be called a dark night of the soul.
.it was during this time I experienced a sudden spiritual awakening. My whole concept of life and our reason for being here changed. I was being called to leave the life I knew behind and go on a grand adventure to uncover the mysteries of life and the universe.
And so in 2003, I left the life I knew and began my own hero's journey and spiritual odyssey.
For the last 17 years, I have searched, questioned, explored, investigated and discovered what it means to become a spiritual warrior in the modern world. The work you are about to begin is the culmination of that journey.
The first aspect of a kundalini jedi warrior is a foundational belief that we are spiritual beings having a human experience. As spiritual beings we are here on earth to inspire , uplift and spread the energy of our soul through our connection to the force.
A kundalini jedi warrior strengthens their connection to the warrior archetype, embodying the qualities of a
The term "archetype" has its origins in ancient Greek. The root words are archein, which means "original or old"; and typos, which means "pattern, model or type". The combined meaning is an "original pattern" of which all other similar persons, objects, or concepts are derived, copied, modeled, or emulated.
The psychologist, Carl Gustav Jung, used the concept of archetype in his theory of the human psyche. He believed that universal, mythic characters—archetypes—reside within the collective unconscious of people the world over. Archetypes represent fundamental human motifs of our experience as we evolved; consequentially, they evoke deep emotions.
Although there are many different archetypes, Jung defined twelve primary types that symbolize basic human motivations. Each type has its own set of values, meanings and personality traits. Also, the twelve types are divided into three sets of four, namely Ego, Soul and Self. The types in each set share a common driving source, for example types within the Ego set are driven to fulfill ego-defined agendas.
Most, if not all, people have several archetypes at play in their personality construct; however, one archetype tends to dominate the personality in general. It can be helpful to know which archetypes are at play in oneself and others, especially loved ones, friends and co-workers, in order to gain personal insight into behaviors and motivations.
Jedi’s have it all in balance. And all the Jedi’s meditate. Why? Because being grounded in their personal connection to the force is the basis of all effective, purposeful action.Why do we meditate? A lot of people think it’s to take the edge off. To soothe our jangled, stressed-out nervous systems and get some relief from our chattering minds. And that’s part of it. But the real reason we meditate is that it sharpens us. It allows us to be more present and perceptive, to hone our sensory acuity, to make better, faster decisions, and to be grounded in a field of consciousness that’s deeper than our To Do list.
A Jedi is the one who is on his path to understand the ways The Force. It is a one that rejects his emotions and follows only his mind. Jedis try to reach absolute balance with the world that surround them - they focus on understanding the ways of all things and use that knowledge to bring peace to those, who suffer. The Jedis understand, that true happiness is only possible when one completely controls his emotions and is sure that what he does or does not is exactly what he want and is suppose to do. A Jedi knows not hesitation or doubt, as his training gives him the skill to avoid mistakes in all forms of actions, be it combat, diplomacy, bartering, repairs or driving/piloting. But the truly important thing to remember about the Jedi is that what they do is learn all about the world surrounding them. Their power comes strictly from UNDERSTANDING, both the inanimate world and all the living creatures.
