Have you always been one with the force, but never had certification? Well, now you can take a course at Queen’s University Belfast in the UK that will build communication skills and promote personal development by using the psych of Jedi Knights.
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”.
The one-day course costs £23 and Dr. Baird, course leader, hopes to attract 30-40 students.
You don’t need to have any prior Jedi training or other qualifications, but one thing – “light sabers are not provided,” so we’re guessing you have to bring your own?
