An Interview with Deb Oxley Creator of Teva Skin Care I love the entrepreneurial story about how you became a developer of one of the best skin care lines on the market today. Can you share? We began with pure Kismet, but followed through with lots of hard work! In our travels to New Delhi we learned through colleagues about an amazing 'topical Botox' cream that couldn’t be found elsewhere. After researching this product thoroughly, we became convinced we needed to bring it to the United States and Europe. This turned out to be a nearly 2 year process of dealing with our FDA and the Indian government. Over the ensuing 7 years, as we educated ourselves about skin care, we have become ever more passionate about providing  serious science proven skin-active based products with healing

Ayurvedic botanicals. We began producing a line of support products locally here in Asheville, North Carolina, which are made from 100% organic and fair-trade wild-crafted ingredients. We felt strongly that our peptide complex needed to adhere to the same EU organic guidelines as the rest of our product line, and over the past 2 years we've worked hard to accomplish this. As the foundation is based on Ayurvedic ingredients, tell us why this works with the science of the advanced peptides and other cosmeceutical components. It's really amazing how many so-called 'folk wisdom' or traditions are proving themselves in clinical settings. We can look at an ingredient such as Gotu Kola for example, which has been

“Real measurable change is possible and even predictable�


used for hundreds of years in Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine and what we find in looking at double blind scientific studies, is the fact that this active works on the skin as effectively as retinols, but without irritation. Every one of our organic actives is backed by numerous clinical studies that prove efficacy. When it comes to the well-known and proven Argireline & Matrixyl peptides that are the backbone of this formula, we went to the source for organic peptides vs. synthesized without parabens, and again, these (organically grown) peptides perform as well or  even better in the studies, so there's not as much conflict between science and nature as one might think.

Formulating skin care is like an art – you seem to have a stellar team of artist formulators and people surrounding you – share your special Team. We have been very fortunate to work with some of the most talented organic/ayurvedic product specialists in the world. Our senior chemist has decades of experience and we have a deep sense of gratitude for his expertise. Working with all natural ingredients and small batches as we do, it is absolutely as much of an art as a science.

You have lived a cosmopolitan lifestyle. What is your view on beauty & lifestyle? I know you cannot be a skin care developer without strong views on these subjects. We try to lead by example and walk the talk. I think our customers are frequently surprised when I ask them about lifestyle, such as diet, sun exposure and smoking. We can put all the free-radical scavenging ingredients in the world on top of the skin, but if we aren't healthy from the inside, it's not going to be nearly as effective. We'd like to bring realism back into skin care marketing.  There is no "overnight miracle" and it's a big disservice for people to be led to believe this idea.  As with any living organism, shedding the old is necessary for new growth and that takes some time and sustained effort. However, real measurable change IS definitely possible and even predictable if one follows a good regimen faithfully and uses good quality ingredients. tevaskincare.com

How do you advance an already advanced product and make it even better?      Neo Plus® Skin Care Technology keeps adding to it's already scientifically advanced professional grade antiaging luxury products new active ingredients of: growth factors, stem cells, peptides, anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories.  These active ingredients are at effective concentration levels used in clinical studies and the products are available only through doctors and spas. The Cellasis Collagen Forming Regime is a two step fragrance free regimen which integrates several highly potent active ingredients whose efficacy has been clinically proven to promote collagen and elastin synthesis. Following the daily regimen, we discovered that our skin was hydrated and appeared to have more luminosity, even tone and clarity with increased dermal volume and density. The Cellasis Collagen Forming Serum and Cellasis Collagen Forming Crème are used as pre-post protocols for procedures including Ulthera, non-invasive lasers, light facial rejuvenation, and various peeling procedures; and are also recommended to use as the daily home skin care regimen. We found  the Lixare Swiss Time – Erasing Eye Cream to  be a highly effective and delicate eye cream, with Argireline®, to reduce wrinkles.  Stem cells and a proprietary botanical eye contour complex, dramatically reduced puffiness and dark circles.  We especially loved this eye cream for its exceptional all-day and all-night hydration; that keeps the eye area moist around the clock. neoplusskincare.com

CHICAGO STYLE

by Paula Hackenast

from casual to evening a Chicago studio along with natural lighting among the city’s historical streets provided the backdrop to compliment the playful personality of asian fashion model, Moody kim. not wanting to miss the opportunity to work with the extremely talented fashion photographer, bryan Whitely, i jumped on board the project as the makeup and hair artist. a Chicago local, bryan’s passion and unique creative vision is evident. bryan’s manner is always upbeat and fun, which set the perfect energy for the photo shoot. Providing the makeup for the lovely Moody was a blast! as with any ethnicity, asian women have beautiful and distinct features to play up.

PRo MaKe UP TIPs avoid anything with a red hue. Yellow toned foundation always seems to blend seamlessly for most skin, especially for Asian women. eyeliner enhances the shape of the eye, especially along the top lid. Avoid lining the inside lid of the eye, along the water line. This will make the eye appear smaller. fill in sparse brows. I suggest using brow powder and/or brow mascara. Even for very dark hair, avoid using black as it looks too harsh. all women want fuller and longer lashes. If curling and applying your favorite mascara doesn’t work, there is always the option of lash extensions or one time use strip lashes. I’m also a huge fan of Latisse. It really works! contouring is more important than people realize. For easy contouring, try a matte bronzer and fan brush to dust along the sides of the nose, jaw line, temples and cheekbones. Highlighting will add the red carpet feel to your look. I love Smashbox’s Highlighting Wand. I add it to the upper apples of the cheeks and down the bridge of the nose for a fresh dewy faced look.

TRAVEL TRENDS

By Mia Mackman

Conscious Travel: Where the Journey is the Destination With the travel industry diversifying, more spas and resorts around the world are catering to a new kind of tourist. Sipping pina colada’s while relaxing on a tropical beach is blissful for many, however, a growing number of people are now seeking more depth with their vacation experiences. People are now interested in ‘conscious travel’ and seeking new varieties of substance centered on well being and environmental sustainability. In addition to exploring local cultures, travelers are searching for destinations that offer holistic retreats, restorative health treatments, specialized food menus, and eco-tours.

Health in nature

1

Destinations such as thermal and mineral springs, desert landscapes, and coastal or mountainous surroundings present a vastly rewarding opportunity for us to participate in the diversity of nature. Negative ions are created in nature when air molecules are broken apart from sunlight, moving air or water. The health benefits of negative ions are incredible. They help to increase the flow of oxygen to the brain, heighten awareness and generate more physical and mental energy. Extremely helpful to the body, they also reduce the impact of electro magnetic pollution found in our modern, urban environments.

self Discovery, Relaxation and Transformation

2

Personal empowerment and transformational programs are rewarding new facets being incorporated into a growing number of hospitality models. With today’s increasingly hectic pace and rapid globalization, these new trip features are a welcome means to achieve stress reduction and discover new tools for relaxation and transformational healing. The highest form of service in this arena is aimed at helping people discover their life’s purpose and learning to create happiness and strength from within, which fosters situational awareness, creating balance and a long-lasting impact on both perspective and decision-making. As futurist Gerd Leonard says, “We are living in an age of exponential reality.” Our need to act quickly, adapt often, and discover new ways to manage our happiness and success is critical to the way we live. As a result, lifestyle programs that introduce palpable skills are increasingly in high demand. e njoyb e auty int er na ti onal .co m

corporate Travel and Retreats Retreat-style destination experiences are a profound way for companies to give back to their executives, leadership teams and employees. Wellness Retreats are becoming a popular and unconventional new environment for conducting business meetings, training, conferences and team building exercises. This powerful approach goes beyond imparting new skills within the walls of the office or the boardroom and extends to the people themselves, instilling life-skills that nurture morale, inspire confidence, and support the growth and development of the individual.

With themes such as leadership, business strategy, stress management, innovation and creativity, companies that make the choice to invest in their human capital are setting up for a win-win when it comes to the health and success of the company and its employees.

Personalized Health and Medical Travel Customized wellness and personalized healthcare are on the rise. With an aging population of traveling baby boomers seeking to enhance their lifestyles, improve their quality of life and sustain better overall health, medical and wellness travel has become a booming global market. According to the Global Wellness Tourism Congress (GWTC) “the wellness travel industry is already a $439 billion market, expected to grow another 50 percent from 2014 through 2017”. 36 en joy be auty in ter n a t ion a l .c o m

6 evolving food choices With global lifestyles constantly amassing increased awareness, the way we look at food continues to dramatically change. Awareness of food sources, quality, and sustainability are making a measurable impact on consumption markets worldwide; driving both consumer preferences and biological tolerances. The results are evident as traditional diets evolve into personalized, lifestyle-based selections. As healthy eating and quality consciousness continue to gain traction, dietary preferences are being driven by ethical and emotional choices that extend beyond nutritional content that comprises a vegetarian, vegan, pescatarian, or raw foodist’s diet. Further considerations include non-GMO, gluten-free, dairy-free, free-range and organically grown food sources. Juicing, dietary cleansing, and specific detoxification programs are also poised for more wide-spread acceptance as the physical and digestive health benefits become more and more clear. Within the hospitality market, creating memorable experiences that support these modern palates is key to incorporating luxury into lifestyle. Twitter: @MiaMackman

THE ART OF SCENT BRANDING An Interview with Sue Phillips of Scenterprices by Casie Orion you have worked with leading cologne and perfume brands and are considered a globallyrecognized expert in the fragrance ďŹ eld. how did your passion for this work come about? My passion for fragrance began as a young girl growing up in South Africa where I was entranced by the indigenous aromas of the Game Reserve, which I visited frequently on school outings. The amazing smell of the jacarandas

54 en joy be auty in ter n a ti on a l .c o m

and the red African earth in the early mornings led me to have an appreciation of our Sense of Smell. This was further developed when I arrived in NY and worked for Elizabeth Arden and became the National Training Director to implement training programs for the consultants selling ďŹ ne fragrance at all the top stores. Our training schools created a motivational environment for attendees to learn about the magic of the fragrances they were selling.

your company, Scenterprises, offers custom perfumes for men and women. tell us about your journey in developing this concept. After I left Elizabeth Arden, I joined Lancôme as Marketing Director and developed fragrance products for men and women. Then became the Vice President of Tiffany & Co and developed and introduced the TIFFANY perfume for their 150th anniversary, which was a wonderful experience. When I left Tiffany to have my daughter, I began my consulting company, Scenterprises™ and developed fragrance brands for Burberrys, Avon, Trish McEvoy, and many others. I loved the idea of developing fragrance brands, and then about 5 years ago realized that custom perfumes for individuals was an initiative that people would like, as personalization and customization was a trend that was taking off. At that time, it was very expensive for an individual to have their own BESPOKE PERFUME (usually only reserved for royalty and the very wealthy)! Our Custom Fragrance seminars and consultations offer affordable luxury whereby anyone can create their own signature fragrance. We have extended this experience for group events such as corporate customer appreciation functions, team-building, and bridal showers.

What’s the basic process for customizing a personal perfume at your fragrance studio (the Scentsorium) for someone who is a beginner at the “scent-sory” experience?

What is Your Scent P

Many people don’t know what olfactory palette they like. So we give them a “Scent Personality Test” which is a fun, educational lifestyle quiz to determine if they like “Fresh”, “Floral”, “Woodsy” or “Oriental” families. Then we take them on a ‘fragrance journey’ to evaluate all our exquisite blends and they select 3 or 4 which they love in order to create their OWN formula. The possibilities are endless! We have done statistics where their formula is one in 280,487,209 possibilities, so the likelihood of ever having someone with the same formula is remote. They ‘name or theme’ their creation and they fill out a ‘formula card’ which we then store in our database for future reordering. This is a fun and educational scentertaining experience, and people love it! And more importantly, they really LOVE their Scent creation.

Studies have shown that smell is our most powerful sense and most linked to our emotional recollection. is there is a personal story that you can share on the effect scent can have on triggering memories or emotions?

Yes, our sense of smell is our most powerful sense after sight, but it is the most forgotten and ignored. Our olfactory hub in our limbic system triggers memories and emotions and I have frequently experienced times when I have

you also specialize in customized fragrance experiences or environmental scent branding, which advertising age has listed as one of the top ten trends of this decade. Can you explain this trend in more detail and why do you think it’s becoming so popular for businesses? Scentbranding or Scentmarketing is one of the growing trends as more companies are realizing that the way to indelibly imprint their brand message is through scent. That is why so many hotels, retailers, luxury car dealerships are utilizing scent as part of their branding message. We have been working in this space for several years and I have been a participant at ScentWorld which oers scentmarketing solutions for companies. In fact, there was a study recently in Belgium where a book store increased book sales by 40% in the areas where the scent of chocolate was diused. scenterprises.com

Is this wrap too good to be true? That’s what I thought, but after using It Works, our Enjoy Beauty International team was pretty impressed. The wrap is delivered in individual pieces that can be used for any body part. We had fun here at Enjoy Beauty as we each tried a different body part. We put on our wrap, then waited 45 minutes. The non-woven cloth wrap is infused with a powerful botanically based formula, which we found delivers true firming and smoother skin. The hydration on the skin was wonderful!

The ďŹ rst night I drove into the heart of this ancient Caldera, the energy of this region enveloped me. The stars seemed brighter and more intimate. My breath felt fuller and deeper. I knew I was drawn into a very special place. Fifteen years later, I am still here and like so many others seeking an alternative holistic lifestyle, have found great inspiration and support from this magical area. Synthesis, my skin care company was founded here, and all products are made in our own organic lab at the base of Mt. Warning

Breathtaking beauty amidst ancient volcanic landscape More than 20 million years ago a volcano erupted over this area, now known as the New South Wales Northern Rivers and Queensland Gold Coast and hinterland region. After several million years of activity, the Australian landmass moved o the "hotspot" which created the volcano, and other natural forces took over, to help make what is now the largest erosion caldera in the southern hemisphere, 64 e nj oy be auty i nte r n a ti o n a l .c o m

and one of the largest calderas in the world. The Caldera Valley is over 1000 meters deep and has a diameter of over forty kilometers, making it larger even than the famous Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania. The spread of the volcano is from Byron Bay in the southeast, and Lismore in the southwest, to Mount Tamborine to the north in QLD. This ancient volcanic landscape is now a United Nations World Heritage Site listed as a living Gondwana Rainforest. The unique and biodiverse ora and fauna that has evolved in


this region has led to its recognition as one of outstanding biogeographical significance. Over 200 rare and endangered species have made their home here. To experience this special place is to be immersed in nature’s mystery and is like stepping back into a lost world. At the heart of the Caldera is the majestic presence of Wollumbin or Mount Warning, which is the first peak on the mainland to be touched by the rising sun at the Autumn and Spring equinoxes.

Spiritual Significance To the traditional descendants of this land, Wollumbin is a place of law, initiation and spiritual learning. Wollumbin has been featured in many stories and goes by different names, including “the Cloud Catcher”. For the Aboriginal people of the Bundjalung nation, who have long lived and hunted within its shadow, Wollumbin holds great cultural significance. Its forests have provided a e njoyb e auty int er na ti onal .co m

plentiful supply of food, medicines and materials for generations of bundjalung people. to this day, Wollumbin remains a sacred place of clan lore, initiation and spiritual education. there is a dreamtime story of Wollumbin, said to be Warrior Chief of the mountain. the spirits of the mountains were warriors. 66 enjoy beaut y in t er n a tio n a l .c om

“From early history, this mountain has been very important to us, the bundjalung people, and to many of the other australian aboriginal tribes. Wollumbin is a place life flows from. this flow is reflected in the water, the mountains and the land. in everything here, we see the power and strength of spirit. it tells us about our part in it. the water that flows


"The protection inside this ring of mountains has always been sacred to our people and to many of the other tribes."

Many spiritual communities and wellness retreats are also

found in this area. esoterically, Mt Warning is known as a place where numerous earth energy lines converge and is a major hub within the earth's energy grid. these energy lines are known by dierent names; Songlines, ley lines, or Dreaming tracks. this is a very blessed place.

A Journey from


m Illness to Wellness by Janelle Castle


“If this was heaven, I had found it and I wanted to pass this feeling on to the rest of the world”

I grew up on a humble farm in an isolated town in the outback of South Australia. When bullied at school, I suffered constant illness and had severe acne for many years. My grades went down as the emotional stress increased. When I reached 20, I was plagued with a chronic back injury, numerous health problems and constantly feeling “not quite right.” By 28, having spent thousands of dollars on my health and feeling no different, I left my University to study Naturopathy with the hope of finding answers. It was here that a little divine intervention led me to experience a unique “energy therapy.” I left this deeply relaxing treatment feeling like I was dancing on clouds. Not an ounce of stress, physical tension or back pain remained. It was a revelation for me. I felt a lightness and clarity in my mind and body that was almost surreal. I felt at peace. I wanted for nothing. If this was heaven, I had found it and I wanted to pass this feeling on to the rest of the world.

74 enjoy b eau t y i n ter n a tio n al .c o m

My therapist explained I had released years of unprocessed emotional “rubbish,” the stress of which had been preventing my body from selfhealing. This was a grand “aha moment” for me. The kind where you feel like the universe has slapped you on the face and everything is suddenly clear. In this moment, I knew what I was here to do. After leading hundreds of international guests through detox, wellness and stress management retreats as a holistic spa therapist to the rich and famous, I have been quite surprised to see the number of self-confessed health enthusiasts who are excessively stressed, disconnected and unwell. Asking after their personal histories, it was becoming clear that all the vegetable juice, yoga and detoxing in the world could not make you healthy if you are carrying around a lifetime of emotional baggage. Reframing the concept of wellness to include


emotional releasing and self-healing instead of focusing just on diets, juicing and supplements was a very new concept. After a session, their feedback told the story: an uncanny sense of deep peacefulness; a positive shift in perspective; reconnection with their life purpose and enjoying a body that felt light and graceful. Inspiration, passion and motivation returned. They slept deeply. The transformation was effortless and the contrast before and after was often incomprehensible to the client. Through the process of letting go, they were finally selfhealing.

Reflecting back, I feel blessed to have become an international wellness leader with a string of celebrities, royal family members and other high profile clientele. Truthfully, my life wasn’t always this glamorous. My philosophy now is to teach others how to use the power of their own energy to release emotional stress and heal themselves and for them to pass this healing knowledge on to those around them, expanding outwardly, and vastly, as a regeneration of the world. emotionalreleasingretreats.com

Gymea Eco Retreat & Spa A Healing Paradise by Sonia Armytage

My journey to healing was revitalized when my family and I decided to leave our world of corporate trappings to have an adventure around Australia. We began to dream of a lifestyle, where sustainability encompasses not only care for Mother Nature, but also care for ones self. Where health and healing plays an important part in feeling connected to the earth, leading to an awareness of how to love and care for ourselves and the planet. In 2011 my husband and I created Gymea Eco Retreat & Spa, a residential retreat centre committed to Human Sustainability, where

76 enjoy b e au ty i nte r n a ti o n a l .c o m

transformational, spiritual, health, yoga, meditation, detox and rejuvenation retreats are held. The retreat and day spa are nestled in a peaceful rainforest valley and rest under the gaze of Wollumbin (Mt. Warning) in Northern New South Wales, Australia. Wollumbin and this land have a sacred and powerful energy, where guests connect with the healing power, beauty, and tranquillity. The journey begins when our visitors negotiate Gymea’s winding driveway; something seems to shift; a feeling of peace and arrival to “somewhere special� descends, readying our guests to be more receptive for their treatments and experiences.


From the beginning of my bodywork training more than 20 years ago, I resonated with energetic modalities, such as Reiki and sacred geometry healing. I felt very strongly that this energetic focus was what I wanted to share with the world, and our day spa was the perfect place to manifest this. At the Spa, we begin our mornings by creating the energetic foundation by clearing the space and inviting in the sacred healing essence of Wollumbin. Candles are dedicated to the original ancestors and spirit energies of the land. This preparation of the space supports our

guests to not only relax and rejuvenate, but experience an immersion into “coming back to self.” To support this “coming back to the heart” we use the Synthesis products that are 100% organic and vegan. One of our signature treatments is the Synthesis Organic First Love Facial, a beautiful sensual experience that cleanses, hydrates, and revitalises the skin. This facial is enhanced by the use of the Synthesis Alcheymic Golden Needle Wands. These wands have a radius or ‘field of energy’, that when engaged with, can purify, transform, and hold Radiance in

our own field as well as our environment. Assisting in replenishing life-force flow, they function purely at an energetic level, affecting the auric field helping to release the blocks we encounter on a daily basis. The focus at Gymea is moving from the head to the heart. Guests are taken on a holistic healing journey imbued with love and nurturing, with a focus on the whole self, including soul connection. I believe there is a positive shift and increased awareness about the need to support the return to the “whole self” in the world today. Pleasingly, people are coming to the realisation that it is not just about beauty and physical health, but also psychological and soul health. gymearetreat.com.au

how did you become interested in “healing” and entering the wellness field? I grew up with a tumour in my leg and at age 10, I had major surgery to remove it. I grew up during apartheid, so I had an early 'crash course' in pain, suffering and healing. Later, after studying and working in the design field, my soul-searching drew me into an in-depth exploration of mysticism whilst living as a monk in Jerusalem for 3 years. Most recently, I’ve been at Mesastila in exotic Java where I developed a new retreat concept called Metamorphosis. Lovingly crafted to “Live Life Inspired,” these personalised journeys help people take the vital first steps to create the life they want. 80 enj oy b eau t y i nt e rn a t i on a l .c o m

Being a qualified Naturopathic Physician as well as a Soul-Coach, I am focused on body, mind and soul education and practices to support holistic wellness and emotional resilience. Programs include detox juicing, organic wellness nutrition, mindfulness meditation, 1-on-1 soulcoaching, ecstatic dance, daily qi gong and yoga.

What is your philosophy on healing? Healing is never-ending. Any illness is a path to spiritual development rooted in a breach of the body's energy field; thus it is essential to treat the energy field.

rience in healing. My passion is discovering the root of the problem, often unresolved fears and feeling not worthy. This stems from a disconnection in love of self and love of God. Once one can accept the original trigger (or traumatic event), naturally one can transcend it. From that position, one brings balance to the body, and the “stressful event” is accepted and integrated. This restores the body's innate healing potential as all healing comes from within. Acceptance leads to harmony. Where do you see the wellness industry heading in coming years? Wellness travel and eco-tourism are the way of the future.

less with urban life. Nature retreats will become more valued as the development trend and population growth continues. Humankind will return to a kinder, more nature-centered approach. The feminine will return to its original state of sacredness and honour. What life lesson would you like to share? We actually create (and recreate) our world in order to reinforce our beliefs. In any given moment, I am responsible. I can choose to be happy - I can choose what defines me. “Those who live passionately teach us how to love.

the Future of Skincare Science from thailand It’s not about the Stem Cells, it’s about the DNA As Thailand continues to be one of the leaders in all things Beauty and Spa, Lamone is one example of deep science at the forefront when it comes to exfoliation, brightening and bringing a clean youthfulness to the skin. When traveling to Thailand recently, Enjoy Beauty International discovered the beautiful Lamone product in the spa at JW Marriott. We tried the two-step product, and have been solid with it ever since. We found that Lamone has special lactobacillus cultures, which delivers the incredible results of the cleanser. Within the cleanser, macrophages are stimulated in the skin. The Macrophages digest DNA’s, which contain CpG (a nutrient for cells). Now, growth factor (Cytokines) are generated which rejuvenate stem cells from destructive conditions. The result is diminishing dark spots and an end to pigmentation. In step two we tried the DNA serum, which has powerful active ingredients of DNA-L and F-Antiox Complex. The serum penetrates deep into the skin to activate stem cell division together with a high concentrated antioxidant complex from fermented berries, (Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin D) to prevent free radical skin cell damage. The Lamone hi-potency serum is the equivalent of lactobacillus in over 300 cups of yoghurt. magicrootthailand.com

A New Journey: By Maria Camille 84 en joy beauty int er n a t ion al .c om


Walking Meditation e njoyb e aut yinte rnat io nal .com

85


Walking meditation The Walking Meditation starts metaphorically through the Zen concept of entering the Gate to arrive at the House. It’s the gateway to understanding the Journey of life.  The metaphor goes like this: 

In Zen terms, clarification of mind is what the sword master calls entering the house and meeting the host. It is the gateway to elementary learning. When you go to a house, first you go in through the gate; thus the gate is an indication that you’ve arrived at the house. Going through this gate, you enter the house and meet the host. You get to the knowledge by going through the gate. Therefore, learning is the gate, not the house. When you see the gate, don’t take it for the house. The house is inside, past the gate.

Walking meditation is the quintessential experience of self. Sometimes it can be more appealing than sitting meditation as a way to ground and clear the mind for quiet reflection. The combination of mental clarity and physical activity refreshes and renews the individual in a unique and fulfilling way.

86 en joy beau t y in t er n a tio n a l .c om


The Gate


However, the “how to” of walking meditation must be connected with the meaning and essence of the path. It is essential to have something to hang your spiritual hat upon while accessing your inner being. Here are some simple suggestions for setting up your own creation of a walking path as well as ideas for imparting the essence of the “journey.” The first step in designing your walking meditation is finding an ideal location, preferably a winding path in nature. Then, designate a beginning (the Gate), middle (the Journey) and end (the House) to the path that you will walk. The pathway should take at least 20 minutes to traverse and filled with sense catching elements. There should be a specific entry point and a place near the end of the path that provides seating such as a bench, a fallen tree, or a flat rock. The essence of the path is based on the Gate, the Journey and the House. The Gate, is the entry point of the journey into self and represents commitment to the path. Entering the path through the Gate symbolizes the cross over place to another dimension. In a sense, each

The Journey


time you enter through the Gate you are provided time to “re-boot” your internal computer. As you take in the elements of the Journey, be it a beautiful tree, the fragrance of a flower, the song of a bird or the sound of a babbling brook, you become aware that the purpose of the journey is to allow the clutter in your mind to fall way. By filling up the senses you are elevated to a higher personal vibration than prior to entering the Gate. Near the end of the physical path is a place designated as the House. This is where you enjoy the benefit of a clear mind that will allow inner reflection and the spiritual space for thought manifestation. What you can imagine can happen and the energy you experienced at the House will help you understand this all important aspect of any meditation. The seating provided allows you to relax and enjoy the meditative state you have accomplished. You have surrendered to the entry through the Gate, left your worries behind on the Journey, and arrived at the House relaxed and able to envision what you desire.
