Our logo

IAT logo full color .png

IAT's logo represents the uplifting or evolution of human consciousness beyond the greed, fear, conflict and material confines of the earth plane.  It symbolizes the repetitive nature of education and experience that leads to wisdom.

A circle is a symbol of unity, healing, integrity and completion.  The spiral is an extension of the circle - a soaring to ever increasing heights.  It represents the repetitive nature of the seasons and cycles - but always there is evolution, growth and change.


Dandelion seeds blowing in the wind represent the hundreds of underprivileged children IAT has empowered with education and leadership skills during the past 40 years.  Their potential is now being realized.

These are seeds of transformation, that are germinating deep within the mass consciousness.  They are creating waves of awakening, reminding increasing numbers who they are, why they are here, and what their purpose is.

The seeds symbolize the new generation of children who are pioneering a new era.  It is their mission to lead humanity in co-creating a world of peace and harmony and a future filled with promise for all.

These are the seeds of compassion, understanding, respect for nature, non-violence, personal freedom, wisdom and love.
