Blending powerful storytelling, evidence-based tools of psychology and mindfulness, and opportunities to share and connect with a community of collaborators, our workshops help participants to identify the internal stories that are limiting them and to write new, more expansive narratives that are full of authenticity, purpose, compassion, and empowerment.
Stay tuned for more information on new workshops to be released at the end of 2020.
Our salons provide a nurturing space for small groups to assemble each week to encourage emotional well-being and personal growth in an engaging and supportive atmosphere. Using a mix of storytelling, guided self-reflection, and group sharing, participants are led by a skilled facilitator to explore meaningful questions, try on new perspectives, and deepen their understanding of themselves.
Though each session works as a stand-alone experience, the greatest value is in ongoing participation which helps members develop a broad range of habits for pursuing and maintaining a more connected and fulfilling life.
In response to COVID-19, we hosted a series of brief online meditation sessions to help individuals manage the stress, anxiety, and ambiguity of the time by turning inward and examining their experience with mindful awareness.
The sessions—which blended techniques from somatic experiencing, visualization, positive psychology—were designed to bring our community together to practice self-compassion and embrace our common humanity.
Tour: Freedom From the Box
Hosted by Elizabeth Koch and Emmanuel Jal, the goal of the speaking and workshop tour was to cultivate vulnerability in community through personal stories and to initiate healing with interactive tools that participants carry forward into their daily lives.
To turn the tide of the growing divide in our culture, Elizabeth Koch and Emmanuel Jal co-hosted this interactive storytelling series designed to help free us from our perception boxes and come together as one community.
Ojai: Weekend Workshop
In 2018, Unlikely Collaborators brought together a group of 80 pioneering leaders from diverse backgrounds, industries, and worldviews for a weekend in Ojai, California. The three-day experience guided participants through a process of self-discovery to address unconscious beliefs and self-defeating thought patterns – expanding the potential for self-realization and unlikely collaborations to emerge.
