Registration for the 2022 IYOU Event is now OPEN! 

Join us for a week of deepening spiritual practice and connection with YOUers from around the world, while we reawaken our spiritual community and realize that what we need we already have within us to affirm our spiritual selves! We are also delighted to announce that, because we were not able to have in-person IYOU Events for the last two years, YOUers who graduated in 2020 and 2021 are also invited to attend the 2022 Event!
