Doreya Karim (Day 1 Talk 3):
“Immunity In The Age Of Information”
Doreya Karim is the director and vice-president of BioGeometry Energy Systems Ltd. Within this role, Doreya manages the BioGeometry research and product development team directly under BioGeometry founder, Dr. Ibrahim Karim, and has had the opportunity to head several BioGeometry research and application projects in the fields of animal farming, architecture, and design.
Since she began teaching in 2015, Doreya has taught over 30 classes in 6 countries aimed at introducing the principles of the BioGeometry “Physics of Quality” a multidimensional form of Pythagorean Universal Harmonics, which provides a scientific basis to approach and classify all the different sensory experiences affecting biological systems and their effect on life functions. This has created a qualitative vibrational language that allows cross-disciplinary communication and collaboration between subtle energy vibrational sciences, helping to lead the way to what we hope is a new era of understanding of the universal multi-dimensional unified human-environmental energy system.
Doreya’s current research and application has helped achieve a sustainable solution for raising chemical, antibiotic-free chickens in Canada as well as research on using shapes to lower low leukocyte counts in dairy farming. Ongoing research in BioGeometry is focused on how classroom design affects the functioning of children with Autism and ADHD.

Lighting Design Solutions in a Changing World
Special Emphasis: Light For Health & Wellness
Available on Amazon June 25 2020
We are excited to announce that our book Contextualizing Light, written by Abhay M Wadhwa, will be available on Amazon June 25 2020! This book examines how the context of a project can provide a causative force for creating an appropriate architectural lighting design solution. Some of the questions that this book endeavors to answer are as follows:
- Why should the lighting world be flat, and at the cost of the amazing variety of local nuances and ideas that can be incorporated into the architectural design process and solutions?
- When did darkness become bad?
- Should the dialog not be about embracing the differences in culture, design approach, and other conditions that each region of the world provides, while embracing light as a universal medium?
- Why are we looking to build an illuminated world at night that looks similar to other places?
- How do the new lighting technologies impact our evolving zeitgeist?
- Why is providing human-centric, dramatic & evocative experiences through light important for architecture & humanity?
- How can we implement contextualized lighting design solutions that respect & enhance life experiences, especially for health and wellness?
The book tour is being rescheduled due to COVID-19. Please stay tuned for updates on the revised schedule. For more information, please visit the book’s website: www.contextualizinglight.com
