Access Consciousness: The Bars® Workshop

Facilitated by Octavio Valente

Programming category: 
September 2, 2017 - 8:00am - 8:00pm

*Special info session Sunday 27th after the CI Class & Jam

Do you remember the last moment in your life when you were totally relaxed and nurtured and cared for? Or has it been a little too long since you received healing and kindness without any judgment of your body or your being?
 
The first class in Access Consciousness is The Bars®. 

There are 32 points on your head which, when gently touched, effortlessly and easily release anything that doesn't allow you to receive. These points contain all the thoughts, ideas, beliefs, emotions, and considerations that you have stored in any lifetime. This is an opportunity for you to let go of everything!

Thousands of people have used the Access Bars to change many aspects of their body and their life including sleep, health and weight, money, sex and relationships, anxiety, stress and so much more. At worst you will feel like you have just had a phenomenal massage. At best your whole life can change into something greater with total ease.

Taking the Access Bars class is a prerequisite for all Access Consciousness® Core Classes as it allows your body to process and receive the changes you are choosing with ease.

What Occurs During Class?

This class is a one-day hands-on class in which participants learn the Bars points and participate in gifting two Bars sessions and receiving two Bars sessions.

Questions that are often addressed in class include:

What are the Bars?
How can I tell if the Bars are running?
How do I find the Bars Points?
What does running Bars change?

You can also ask any questions you have! Each class is co-created with everyone that choose to come to that particular class.

Prerequisites
None

Certification

Participant Community Support

As Earthdance runs as a​ community, all participants contribute helping out throughout the workshop with cleaning up after meals. These are great ways to connect more with your fellow participants, Earthdance staff, and to feel more at home here. We will be welcoming you into this collective home and thus so appreciate your contributions to our space!

Our Sliding Scale
The fees to attend Earthdance Jams and Workshops are priced on a sliding scale. Please pay at the highest level of the sliding scale that you can afford. This allows others who need to pay less the opportunity to attend.

Professional Rate: for those comfortably paying their rent or mortgage. The Professional Rate also helps us offer lower prices to those who could otherwise not afford to attend.
Full Rate: for those who have a regular income and are paying their mortgage or rent. Prices at this level contribute to the range of Earthdance's operating costs.
Subsidized Rate: for those with an income low enough that making ends meet is a challenge.
 
 
Faculty
Octavio Valente

I am an artist, a mover. I’ve started my body movement research and studies more professionally at The London Contemporary Dance School, during the time I was a UK resident. In the year of 2011, Meditation became a daily practice in my life, I got trained as a Hatha Yoga Instructor as well as an Ayurvedic Yoga Massage Practitioner and since then my experience has expanded through studies in various dance and body movement somatic fields, as well as energy healing modalities. Over a year ago I encountered Access Consciousness as a philosophy and went through the process to become an Access Bars Facilitator. Today, I’m here and now, heart opened to share this incredible tool that has brought me more awareness to infinite possibilities, to less judgment and more consciousness.
