Welcome to the Institute for Jedi Realist Studies and our Academy training program. Throughout this introduction course, you'll be meeting the primary faculty that you'll be interacting with in your training here. While everyone has different levels of availability, you are welcome and encouraged to interact in the discussion forum to get to know us all better. Many of us maintain blogs and/or training journals as well. You can find links to these on the discussion forum. This introduction course is also to introduce you to the training program at this Academy. Through it you will learn what is expected of a student at the Academy, as well as what types of topics you will cover throughout your initial training here. It's also an introduction of another kind, where we are introduced to you, perhaps for the first time. The work you do in this Introduction Course is the basis for all of your future training, so approach it with the effort a life changing path requires. I wish I were welcoming you in person to a physical Academy, but that is not an option at the moment. That does not make your training any less real, however. This training can change your life in ways that can't be imagined when you begin. I can safely say, without the training I've done over the years I would not have survived the many trials that have come to my family over the past few years. Everyone here can share a story of how the Jedi path has improved their life. These experiences have guided us as we develop a curriculum with real world application. We all understand the importance of training offline, that the Jedi path is walked through every moment of our life, and is not something to simply role play online. If you are looking for a path of personal growth and improved quality of life, this may be the path for you. It requires work, but we will provide you tools that make this process a bit easier. If you have any questions at any time, I invite you to ask either in the forum, especially in the Guidance Office or by contacting faculty individually. It is my sincere hope that you complete this course. Many people don't make it past a few weeks of actual training, for many reasons. For some this just isn't the right path for them, however it is far more common for a person to just not make the time in their life. So I ask you, are you ready to take control of your life? Are you ready to grow into the best person and Jedi you can be? If so, let's get started! Welcome to the Jedi path!
