"Then you'll be returning beyond shadows with us? I'm sure you'll find it very...enlightening."
Rhondi Tremaine to Luke Skywalker on beyond shadows

Beyond shadows was the name given to a realm of the Force to which Force-sensitives went when they separated their minds from their physical beings. The technique of separation was discovered by the Mind Walkers at Sinkhole Station, a space station in the Maw. To go beyond shadows a being first went into a state of meditation, then pictured one number at a time, beginning with the number one and finishing with seven, which, when pictured, completely severed the being's mind from their body.

The sensation felt by Force-sensitives when beyond shadows was that time was meaningless. Every instant felt as if it lasted forever, and vice versa. As such, it was impossible to keep track of time while beyond shadows. This made going beyond shadows a dangerous task, as, although the Force could sustain a being's body for a while, their body couldn't live without nutrition forever, and they could die while beyond shadows. The Mind Walkers; however, were unconcerned by this fact, as they believed that everything was an illusion except for the Force.

After the Yuuzhan Vong War, Jedi Knight Jacen Solo went on a five-year sojourn to expand his knowledge of the Force. His journeys took him to Sinkhole Station, where he traveled beyond shadows with the Mind Walkers. Later, in 43.5 ABY, Jedi Grand Master Luke Skywalker and his son, Jedi Knight Ben Skywalker, embarked on a quest to discover more about Solo's fall to the dark side of the Force. They traveled to Sinkhole Station, where they met with the Mind Walkers. While there, Luke went beyond shadows with Mind Walkers Seek Ryontarr and Feryl. While there he saw the Font of Power, the Pool of Knowledge, and then was joined with Ben and another Mind Walker, Rhondi Tremaine, before seeing the Lake of Apparitions. While there, they also encountered a mysterious being, who seemed to want to speak with Luke. The Skywalkers, however, realized that they needed to return to their bodies, and they left the realm.
