Integral Embodied Self-Initiating Youth Gatherings
Austria(n Alps), Europe | 1-5 May 2024
We are weaving a net of trust, meaning that:
All co-creators/participants have had at least one long 1on1 conversation with one of the IYG team
about joining this space, to check if there is alignment for this first Gathering.
~50 co-creators total
Gen Z & Gen Y (Millenials) = 18 - 42 years old
[18+ because it would drastically increase the legal complexity]
Qualities of Co-Creators
integrally-open & excited about Wilber's Integral (Theory &) Practice,
which is our common reference point/shared framework to orient what is happening & what we want to happen.
We have put together the 10 key aspects
of Integral Theory for this Gathering ...

HOW WE RELATE & CREATE
We are relating in an intentional culture
inspired by Circling Europe & Authentic Relating.
We are cohering a safe & brave emergent space
to show up & live the human experience more fully.
The central elements are reminders of our 5 liberating freedoms inspired by We-Flow
that will be shared during the enrollment process.
They rest on top of the foundation of giving freedom, before we give (ourselves & each other) anything.
There are no boundaries imposed on us by the location
(apart from property damage and upholding the liberal Austrian law).
What will happen is entirely up to us.
As such, we practice self-responsibility, which to us means that
everyone self-initiates to meet their own needs and can offer to fulfill wishes of others.
This is a space for us to just happen around each other with what feels real to us.
The only desired outcome is that we more deeply realize what it's like to be human.
(if you don't speak German, set the auto-generated subtitles to your language of choice)
We have the whole location to ourselves!
It's a 3-star hotel
with designer-styled & 100 freshly renovated unique rooms
with a Sauna, piano room
and much more.
While German (with an endearing accent ;) ) is the main language in Austria,
English is our lingua franca & default language at this gathering.
is a given to us, which is another feature of this location. It has
- an award-winning water treatment plant
- photovoltaic installation
- brand new wood-based heating system
Arrival & Departure
We are organizing shuttles from the closest train station (10min) "Aspang Markt",
which can be reached directly in ~1h from Vienna's primary train stations.
And there might be a possibility to stay at the location 1-2 days prior or later,
depending on if there will be other groups right before or after,
which the location will confirm up to 2 weeks before.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN
We practice a co-creator mindset that lets us grow up from a consumer role,
meaning that you are very much encouraged to share your own gift with us,
e.g. in the form of a workshop.
Gifts that were shared last year included:
Opening & closing the gathering with Developmental Ecstatic Dance
An Open Space day - using a proven pattern to emerge our wishes for a full-day in real-time
We-Spaces like Authentic Relating™ towards the beginning of the gathering
Emergent Music Sessions towards the end of the gathering
Parallel Women's - and Men's Circle
Swedish hosted Sauna Sessions
The beauty is that we can always come back to our inner center &
choose to meditate or rest.
Food is already organized :)
WHAT ARE physical REQUIREMENTS
The principle for meeting our physical needs is that of a potluck,
but instead of everyone bringing their own food & tents,
we got ourselves a fancy hotel at a dream destination &
organized a vegan & Aryuveda-informed chef,
who has known the location for years, and will support us,
turning fresh ingredients into delicious meals.
(everyone will have the opportunity to cook and
serve the larger holon/whole by supporting to keep hygiene-standards high once)
Our aim is to keep everyone's financial contribution at 333€ (!)
and keeping the financials transparent & simple for all co-creators.
With this, we are creating an all-inclusive experience for ourselves
hotel room, 2 cooked meals plus breakfast and awesome amenities.

or directly schedule a call to check if there’s alignment for you joining:
We will close enrollment on the 15th of April 2024
to finalize preparing the gathering.
This is a space for us to create what we want to see in the world!
