Chris guides simple, powerful breathing patterns that induce a neurological shift. you'll leave the constraints of time and language behind, releasing old blockages and limiting beliefs. What is available when our narrow sense of self vanishes into thin air? What can we create from this high-altitude altitude flow state? The transformative inner journey is set to an inspired soundtrack, and anyone can participate.

UCOT LAB A: I Love Algorithms

Whether you're a coder, or you're not sure the difference between machine learning and artificial intelligence, this is a workshop for you. We believe that every person needs to be part of shaping, using, and working with emerging technology. And no, you don’t need to know anything about code.
This d.school workshop will explore the intersection of machine learning + design in a lower resolution and experiential way. We'll practice different ways of understanding the implications of this technology in the world. Together we’ll learn by doing.

UCOT LAB C: Exploring the impact of sexual myths, fairytales and technology on our sexuality

Growing up, most of us learned how sex and sexuality is supposed to look from our family, schools, churches, media and technology. In this workshop, we will explore the limitations of those messages, as well as the sometimes negative impacts of technology on our relationship with our bodies. Through group conversation and embodied experiments, we will debunk some of the myths we have been taught, and increase our understanding of our own individual physical nature.

UCOT LAB D: The Big Data Gold Rush
Led by: Nathan Walworth, PhD, University of Southern California

UCOT LAB E: Singing Songs of Our Ancestors
Time travel from the redwoods in Scotts Valley to the 18th century Appalachia through live singing and story telling. This workshop invites you into a deeper understanding of our current reality through the exploration of our collective roots. You will do an exercise that connects you to your own personal lineage of story telling and songs. You’ll uncover a deeper sense of identity, confidence and connection.
