What does it mean to be a Force-wielder that isn’t a Jedi or a Sith? In the 23rd episode of Lattes with Leia, we talk about the middle path and why it can be good to draw upon both the light and dark sides of the Force. We dig into what being on that path means for someone’s identity and why “Gray Jedi” isn’t a thing.
The end of another month means it’s time for another Lattes with Leia!
