The Arkinnea Jedi Order
Is for the study of Jediism. We are not a role playing group, or affiliated with Star Wars, Lucasfilms, or Disney. We are Old World spiritual beliefs with New World adaptations.
We believe everyone has the right to interpret the Force however it is laid upon their hearts. Everyone also has the right to give the Force whatever name they wish.
At Arkinnea Jedi Order we do not discriminate against Jedi or Grey Jedi, race, religion, or sex. There is no such thing as the light or dark side. There is only the Force and the paths each of us choose.
Arkinnea Jedi Order History
The Mother Temple was officially founded December 17, 2014 by Master Alan Wilson. The Name Arkinnea breaks down as such, Ark- a sanctuary that serves as a place of protection; for Initiates practicing Non-physical Neutrality in the Education of the Arcane. The temples' symbol is the Order of the Jedi wings and saber surrounded by two hawk-bats. The hawk-bat in pairs is a symbol of brotherhood/sisterhood. A pair of hawk-bats will fight to the death to protect each other. The Dark maroon in the symbol is the color of blood, and shows that we are willing to spill it (ours or others), for what we believe.
Master Wilson is an Independent Jedi who has lived his life in accordance of Jediism since before it truly existed. He started applying Jedi philosophy to his life after studying the teachings within the book "Christian Wisdom of the Jedi Masters" around 2005. He joined the Temple of the Jedi Order in August of 2014, became Knighted by the Monestary and recognized by the Jedi Church of the UK November 13, 2014, and became ordained as a Master officially January 1, 2015. He is currently Grand Master of the Arkinnea Jedi Order, with multiple initiates and padawans underneath him. He is currently studying to become an Orthodox Jedi at The Temple Of The Jedi Order (TOTJO).
