Generation Z From the Inside

IEC Conference: 2023

With more and more technological and cultural impacts of the online age taking place, we must not forget to transcend and include the youth who grew up in it. How do we relate to integral? How might you best assist us on our growth? How did the internet, social media, technologies impact us? While generationalism can be the source of further divide, just as with stages, mapping and understanding each generation in context adds to our journey into wholeness. Currently generation Z outnumbered the Baby Boomers, now being the largest generation alive, being one third of the current human population. Pretending to be the spokesperson for that many people is impossible (although I tried). What I will do instead is share some lessons from running a gen Z circling group, our sentiment, relationship to the past, present, future.



Spending my adolescent years on the early internet, I’ve had the pleasure of being confused in a time when Ken Wilber youtube videos existed. By the time I starting a psychology undergrad in one of UK’s top 10 universities, I’ve worked with Philip Zimbardo, became coach, and I was determined to ponder spiral dynamics, the tao and (or rather in) altered states in a professional context. To my disappointment, none of the professors had known Wilber, nor Beck, Kegan, Cook-Greuter, neither were my course mates into these juicy abstractions. So as covid hit the 3rd term of my first year, I moved on and joined the 3 year Integral Psychology course at home, in Budapest. Along with my personal processes and explorations of my age related topics, I specialised in integrating mediums, memes, generations. Became a speaker, as well as a Gen Z group facilitator.
