The Feminine Light Global Symposiums

The Wisdom and Light of the World

The Feminine Light Global Symposiums™ are conducted around the world and designed to highlight and promote the strategic work of  i-We, nonprofits, businesses, and unique individuals that support women’s leadership bringing change through an enlightened healing vision for a specific purpose and influence in various regions in the world.

The regions include:

  • The Feminine Light in Africa

  • The Feminine Light in Australia
  • The Feminine Light in Europe
  • The Feminine Light in the Middle East
  • The Feminine Light in Latin America
  • The Feminine Light in North America

During the symposium is the presentation of The Star Rose Awards designed by i-We to recognize those people who share in leading the way toward enlightenment through self-esteem and benevolence, a supportive life force which benefits humanity. Star Rose reflects the rich history associated with the eight-pointed star found in i-We’s logo and is a symbol associated with Innana who is considered the most prominent female deity in ancient Mesopotamia. As a goddess, Innana embodies the cycles of a woman’s life as well as love and death or the transformation of the soul while the meaning associated with rose is grace, joy, and appreciation.

The Feminine Light in the Middle East Symposium 2011

The first Feminine Light Symposium was held on The International Day for Tolerance, November 16th, 2011 at The Century Plaza Hotel, Los Angeles, California.

The Feminine Light in the Middle East Symposium was designed to promote the strategic work of I-WE, nonprofits, businesses, and unique individuals who realize that women with a vision and value are key to bringing a greater peace to that region. On Unesco’s International Day for Tolerance, The Feminine Light in the Middle East Symposium: A Vision of Women that honors our Worth and encouraged us to create a life of Purpose: A vision, A Gender Declaration of Interdependence, that offered unconditional support to Men.

On this day, we showed gratitude for our blessings and achievements and joined with others creating a voice of tolerance, leading the way toward greater personal and global fulfillment. Today, we looked toward the women in the Middle East and explored ways to support them in their security, self-worth and purpose. Together we worked toward a harmony that found balance between the feminine and the masculine, leaving a healthy legacy for our children.

This day was the official launch of the Institute of Women’s Enlightenment and gave birth to an action plan for working together toward the common good of women everywhere. We:

  • Developed our consciousness with regard to the nature of our identity as women
  • Promoted an exchange of ideas that will live on after the event
  • Created a vision of understanding and encouragement
  • Found practical ways to support women and girls in the Middle East
  • Developed an action plan for ensuring that women’s and girl’s voices are heard

It was a day of discovery, illumination, definition, and enlightenment. Also we enjoyed music, soulful sounds, savory tastes, and celebrations of the Star Rose Awards.
