Integral Youth Gathering: Co-creating our world

IEC Conference: 2023

This year we have organized the first “Integral Youth Gathering” and we invite you to experience a “snapshot” of our co-creation with us!

In the first part of this session, we will present our insights about

  • what it means to gather & weave communities in an integrally-informed way,
  • the patterns that we have emerged in this process of co-creation and self-organization,
  • and just share our most enlivening experiences during this process with you.

In the second part, we will facilitate three breakouts where you can choose between

  1. continuing the co-creation process that started with the initiation of the IYG – using a practice of the We-Space In-body-ment modality, facilitated by Kaja Bienzle
  2. inquiring into the next generations of Integralists- using the U-Process, facilitated by Lennart Tjarks
  3. initiating your own gathering – using a We-Flow practice, stewarded by Jakob Possert

We are excited to gather – at least a little bit – with you!

Find us here:



I delight in showing up as a companion to the next generations. Through weaving educational containers that support learners in their development, I aspire to create what I believe the world needs: a truly integral education for the 21st century that we can feel excited about.

Beyond this drive to emerge new educational patterns, I enjoy shaping our world with other integrally-inspired co-creators. I’m looking forward to connecting with you at the IEC!



Integral has fundamentally contributed to my intellectual awakening around 10 years ago now. Today I am excited to come back and make my own contribution to the movement:

During the last few years living in 10 different countries, I have been involved with different communities, intending to bring Integral Theory and practices in different ways. This effort has now culiminated in taking on the role of the Main Co-lead at the Integral Youth Gathering.

It is wonder-ful to be bringing my personal & professional passion, for supporting individuals and organizations to increase their sovereignty, to this endeavor.

I firmly believe that finding more purposeful and exciting ways of gathering can contribute to the social fabric that enables not only a Planetary Awakening (2.0) but also the emergence of an even more epic civilization.

TJARKS, Lennart
