Elements include yoga, Access Bars®, theater improvisation, meditation, the art of memoir, the joy of doing business, fellowship, play and laughter.
The cost for local residents is $500 for the program which normally charges $750. It offers Access Bars® Certification for Holistic Practitioners.

According to the accessconsciousness.com website, Access Bars is a gentle hands-on modality that was introduced by Gary Douglas in the early 1990s. The Bars are 32 unique points on the head that correlate to different areas and aspects of life. During an Access Bars session, a practitioner gently touches these points to release the electromagnetic charge of all thoughts, ideas, attitudes, decisions, and beliefs that may have limited you in the concerned life areas.
