Held every two years on the European continent, IECs are not only a huge social catalyst where international integral collaborations begin, enabling our human capital to grow, they also have a mission based on integral principles. This year’s in-person IEC has been postponed to May 24-28, 2023 due to the coronavirus situation and this IEC Hybrid 2022 has been set up for the original dates 25-29 May, 2022.

Integrally informed scientists and researchers present their findings. Peer reviewed with an Academic Committee of international scholars.
Use of integral theory in different areas of life, and developing new theoretical contributions in psychology, healing, business, society. Reflecting also on current societal and political issues of Europe and the world.
The evolved teal and turquoise stages of personality aimed for by integral cannot be reached without deeper inner work, in which we uncover and process our individual and collective shadows to become more honest, liberated and connected. Experience shadow work on workshops from skilled facilitators in the integral community.
During the presentations and workshops, facilitators will use the breakout rooms often. You’ll have the chance to meet people in various settings, too, during the more structured call times.
Isn’t it a crazy idea to do ecstatic dance on Zoom with a large number of people? Seriously? Yes, it is possible: Zoltan Kerenyi-Kiss, Integral Academy graduate and leader of the Hungarian Ecstatic Dance community will lead us in dancing with the community in the conscious space of ecstatic dance from home! The bare feet, no alcohol, no drugs policy enables a field of freedom, inclusivity, and self-expression, where your untamable free soul can express itself in this nonverbal communal space. Zoltan, also our DJ Metta, masterfully provides soul-stirring music after a guided movement meditation warms up participants. The tribal party ends with a relaxing sound bath experience.
Live music is an inherent part of the conference. Different musicians and even conference participants (!) will play and give short musical interludes.
Join the online and live events from the comfort and safety of your home – you can participate in all workshops and presentations, and follow most of the Live events of the Budapest Forum broadcasted online. Choose from three ticket options for online participation.
We focus on the community and the experience, so every day you will also attend experiential and transformational spaces. Experiencial learning gives you a deeper understanding of concepts and creates important new relationships, maybe the most valuable ones for a long time.
Integral is here to stay. Integral theory will probably be the most important perspective in business, psychology, healing, and other areas – this conference is an intellectual and practical investment, the knowledge you gain will enrich your life and your career.
Put yourself in the forefront of integral! If you’re a professional or a scholar, then this is the place to go to be on the cutting edge.
If you’re an integral professional or an entrepreneur, this event is an important opportunity for you to network, to get exposure for your work, and to get to know your peers. And it is simply a thrilling buzz and a joy to be with so many people of quality, goodwill and smart evolutionary purpose!
You are part of something big here the revolution of consciousness: the next stage of evolution unfolding. People are allies of the evolutionary unfolding, dedicating ther lives and careers for that purpose. Come and explore with us all the different ways how we are doing it and present yours!

Normally, IECs are in-person conferences where we gather together physically. Since the COVID pandemic, we have started hosting online IECs, the first of which was held in May 2020. It was a great success, with over 1,000 participants from all over the world, including Europe, the Americas, Asia, Africa, and Australia.
In 2022, IEC takes shape in a Hybrid format with both online event and live events broadcasted to the online space from Budapest, Hungary. Read more on the hybrid format here.
The next in-person, live gathering is planned for 2023.
The topic this year is “World Peace with the Integral Approach”. Of what it means, you can read more description here.
The deadline for applications was April 10th and we have already received many more than we have space for. You could still apply if you feel your offering is very special – integrally informed, fun and entertaining – but the chances that you will be accepted are slim.
Later this year, we will launch another call for presenters for IEC 2023.
At an online conference, we have a special situation where people can only participate according to their waking hours. Therefore, instead of following the structure and variety of presentations we know from live IEC events, we will focus mainly on one type of presentation format: a 90-minute presentation slot in which theory and practice will be combined. In that way, whether someone joins from Europe, the Americas, Africa, the Middle East, Asia, or Australia, they will be able to participate in at least some of the sessions live and enjoy the exchange in breakout rooms, while watching other presentations as a recording after the conference.
The conference is hosted and produced in Europe; 50% of attendees are Europeans and 50% from the rest of the world. So, we have put the most important keynotes and main evening events in the afternoon and evening hours of CEST (Central European Standard Time zone), which includes Paris, Berlin, Budapest, etc., because that is when most people are awake all around the globe and have the most chance to get together. However, presentations and events are also ongoing throughout the day in Europe, from 8 am CEST to 12 midnight.
All sessions are recorded, and those who have joined the conference and purchased a ticket can access them 48 hours after the live event and up to two months after the conference.
A combination of Zoom and live conference hall are our hybrid conference platforms. Some presenters and participants come in person to the live venue, some others join online. As at the live venue, for keynote presentations and all community processes we have a main hall there and live presenteres present there, zoom participants participate via live zoom feed. Those keynote presenteres who present through zoom will be projected in the live venue. Other presenters both on zoom and in person will be all connected to zoom, so online only participants will be able to get 80% of all events. Some event elemenst will be available only in person at the live venue. Presentations (except for the keynotes), happen in parallel rooms. IEC’s Hosting Team will provide both a technical host and a facilitator host for each zoom and live presentation. Presenters will be provided with details about how to contact their hosts to prepare the session for a smooth experience. If you are an experienced online facilitator and would like to become part of this team, please email us.
At live IEC conferences, there is a complex format with multiple types of offerings, slots, and events, with two days of pre-conference workshops, keynotes, and 20-minute TED-style talks in the mornings, long experiential workshops in the afternoons, and community events in the evenings. For the Hybrid IEC we made it much simpler to accommodate different time zones and the online Zoom format. There is only one main type of 90-minute presentation slot, and there are no thematic categories in the application.
a) Standard presentation: 90-minute presentation
Presenters will all have a 90-minute Zoom session. We ask all presenters to combine their lecture with some experiential exercises and opportunities to share in breakout rooms. The nature of a mature integral experience includes both the mind and the body, sense and soul, understanding and feeling, verbal and nonverbal, even sometimes altered states. Often the presenter is also a facilitator, facilitating we-space practices, relational practices, helping people to connect more deeply and authentically, leading guided meditations, having people stand up and move, etc.
b) Keynote presentations
Keynote presentations are 30 minutes long, and selected by conference organizers by invitation. There are only a limited number of these slots. Therefore, there is no formal option for applying for a keynote presentation. Nevertheless, if you feel your offering would fit a keynote, or you wish to suggest a new speaker, you can email our team to inquire.
c) Morning practices
You can also offer morning practices via Zoom, such as meditation, yoga, movement, etc. to start the day with some centering, purifying, spiritual practice. This means CEST morning time, but anyone can join from other continents—for them it might be a daytime or evening session. There are still slots open for this type of offering.
d) Art presentations
The presence of beauty through art is very important to us for a truly integral experience. If you are an artist and have ideas how this can work in an online format, please apply through the online form (and if you have an idea how to integrate it into a workshop or otherwise, email us directly). We will probably not have an online gallery like last time, but we are still open to creative ideas and input.
It will be the same as last year (all times are CEST Central European Summer Time):
7:00-8:00 Morning meditation or yoga
8:00-9:00 Open coffee bar
9:00-10:30 Presentations / workshops
11:00-12:30 Presentations / workshops
13:00-14:30 Lunchtime socializer
13:00-15:00 (only Sunday) Dating event
18:00-19:30 Presentations / workshops
20:00-21:30 Presentations / workshops
22:00-00:00 Different evening events / socializers
Yes, the recordings of all sessions will be available for all participants for 2 months after the conference.
AUDIO & VIDEO – In order for you to enjoy your presence fully and join conversations, you’ll need a microphone as well as a camera. Built-in cameras on laptops, tablets, and smartphones are fine; built-in microphones are usually not so fine, so for better audio we recommend using a headset with a microphone!
DEVICE – Laptops and PCs are better than smartphones (including iPhones) because the screen is bigger and you can see more people without having to scroll a lot, making the communal experience better. You’ll also have better access to Zoom control buttons.
INTERNET – As for internet connection, it’s best to have stable, strong cable internet. Second best is strong wifi. Third (not so stable) are SIM cards. Usually, if you can watch videos on YouTube or video chat via Skype, you should have no trouble joining the conference.
ZOOM – Make sure you install Zoom on your device before IEC and try it out, test it!
Yes, you may ask questions of the presenters during the presentations in the live stream or live Zoom chat. Each session will be hosted by a Zoom Tech Host and a Facilitator Host, and they will give instructions in the call / or in the info email on how to participate in an interactive way. Most sessions will be interactive.
In order to get access to Live events, you need to purchase one of the hybrid ticket options from the ticket shop.
Live events will be held in and broadcasted online from Budapest, the Hungarian capital in the heart of Europe.
The venue of the Budapest Forum where the live part of IEC Hybrid 2022 is going to be is the Budapest Marriott Hotel.
Please note that every participant of the Hybrid version of IEC 2022 has to arrange their accommodation in Budapest on their own.
