IYOU Event 2020: Illuminate - Online Event

Event Purpose Statement: 

To create an inclusive community of love and support where people are inspired to learn and grow spiritually, and experience an understanding of their endless potential.

Our online IYOU event is complete! We thank you for attending and we thank Julie, Zoe, Amelia, and Emily for their outstanding work!

The Indies did a fantastic job of adapting what had been planned as a five-day event at the Village to a virtual event that took place with five sessions over four days. The participants came from all seven regions in the USA, as well as several from Trinidad.  Content included workshops presented by the Indies, as well as family groups and other small groups that provided the opportunity to get to know more people.  We were blessed by music from Bob Sima, Shannon Plummer, and Rev. Bodhi Ross Campbell.

The theme for the Event was “Illuminate”, and each session had a theme that took the attendees on a spiritual journey of exploration and enlightenment.  Thursday evening was about learning to “Recognize” that we have the power to illuminate our way.  Friday evening’s theme was understanding that we have the power to “Navigate” to the path we want to be on.  Saturday afternoon was learning to “Trust” that divine order is at work in guiding our path, and Saturday evening was understanding that we have the ability and resources necessary to “Inspire” ourselves to keep moving forward on our path.  Finally, Sunday morning’s theme was “Radiate”, understanding that our Spirit knows what our true path is, and we are empowered to have faith and trust that our inner light will illuminate the way.
