The Ancient of Irel

t Future lands Moss

The Power of the Earth  Deep in the heart of Co. Offaly, Ireland there is a special land in a basin where wild plants, grasses, flowers and mosses have been  decomposing into vital rich elements for  over 9,100 years.

The peat moss is laden with the most nutrient rich elements the earth can provide. Science shows that through the centuries, the peat has grown even more energetically powerful. This Irish organic earth is a perfect ecosystem and is completely disease free. When Ireland’s potato famine hit 150 years ago, the only potatoes that were not blighted were the potatoes in the peat bogs. A special company that is bringing the Irish peat to spas worldwide is ÓGRA who have adopted the Celtic Wisdom Tradition within their treatments. Their focus is to provide an authentic Celtic spa experience, which marries the wonderful preservative powers of the Irish peat with the mysticism and ethos of their Celtic forefathers.

Ancient imes the Peat Celtic wisdom is considered to be one of the most ancient traditions in the world extending back to 500 b.C. the Celts were ahead of their time as society was remarkably free, open and democratic.

e njoyb e auty int er nati onal .co m




The Celtic wisdom and tradition is concerned with achieving balance in body, mind and spirit through being aware of all the elements that make up the environment. Under the Celtic system, all things are believed to exist on three levels – physical, mental and spiritual.

Wom thei The  the  insp othe .


Celtic wisdom is nature based, where the inter-connectedness of all life lives in harmony with the cycles and rhythm of nature. Celts believe in riding the tide rather than pulling against it. They believe that this allows people to realize their full human potential.


The Celtic approach to life is a profoundly mystical one. It’s an attitude of mind that is gently rooted in the heart.


The Celts recognize the importance of having solitude and times of quiet reflection. They recognized and honored the importance of rest and slowing down for healing.


The Celtic teaching embodies a philosophy that trusts the senses, inner stirrings and intuitive prompts that the body offers us at each moment of our day. In essence, Celtic philosophy supports us in the wonder of being alive.


The Celts believe they belong to the land rather than the land belonging to them.


Celtic tradition is ‘elemental,’ as it inhabits a space in the natural world that is sensitive and responsive to the environment. Just as nature goes through transitions, nature can also support us through our own change and transition

THE FUTURE Today, the same reverence for the peat and the richness of the land is being brought forward by Ógra, a small but mighty group of passionate caretakers who are harvesting small amounts of peat in a very special way so as to keep it fully alive and powerful as a beauty and health curative.


Currently, the Ógra Team is reaching out via a crowd funding campaign to bring in the funds necessary for a responsible harvest and sharing of the peat. Through this sharing, their intention is that they can connect with spas around the world through educating about the beauty properties the peat delivers and the reverence they feel in their connection and responsibility with nature as caretakers. If you would like to support Ógra’s efforts, please consider pledging your funds via this link to Indigogo. Ógra encourages you to share the Irish curative peat with your friends, family and others you believe would also appreciate this energetic living formula.

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. e njoyb e aut yinte rnati onal .co m

An Interview with Maria Camille Founder – Publisher of Enjoy Beauty International By Casie Orion e njoyb e aut yinte rnat io nal .com


Casie orion shares:


must admit i was a bit nervous when i was asked to interview Maria Camille, the founder of enjoy beauty international, who also happens to be my mentor and good friend. on the surface, Maria is not intimidating, she is petite with a kind smile and gentle eyes; but when you get to know her, you begin to realize you are in the presence of a truly powerful woman who is a force to be reckoned with. From the first time i met Maria, i knew she would be a transformational influence in my life. after all, what started out as a meeting over coffee, turned into a hike where she proceeded to demonstrate the beautiful internal martial art form, bagua Flow, a practice and philosophy she has harmoniously weaved into all aspects of her life- including her professional work. i wanted to accurately capture Maria’s complexity and share her remarkable journey. i found moments of tragedy and struggle to personal triumph and unyielding courage; always pushing herself beyond any limiting barriers to new adventures. i can see how this Mother of reinvention became a visionary professional. During our talk she shared several formative experiences and influences that shaped her professionally and spiritually.

aria was uprooted from Santa Barbara, California at age 16 and relocated to a Native American village in the wilds of northern Alaska, where her father worked at a government facility. It was on this 2,500 mile journey through the Alaskan out-back driving on dirt roads that inspired her to begin writing. Her last year of school was with a graduating class which included herself and 11 Native Americans and Eskimos. By the time she was 17, life took a drastic turn when she was “claimed” by a powerful Mafioso who was 25 years her senior and very influential in the U.S. it was out of sheer desire and determination, to make my life an authentic expression of who i was and to expand with all my abilities.”

“By the time I turned 21, I had given birth to three children,” she says. “During this time my house was burned to the ground and I also lost my 2 year old son. In deep pain, it became clear that I had to move on to create a better life for my daughters and myself. At that point, I did

not have a formal education or money of my own - It was out of sheer desire and determination to make my life an authentic expression of who I was and to expand with all my abilities.” Maria found the courage to leave that life with very little funds and begin a new journey forward. She found her confidence and realized her capability in creating her reality after she put $5,000 she had saved into some land in Arizona and developed a small subdivision. Within a short time, she was able to build her own home. With new freedom, she started skydiving. At age 24, she bought the parachute center and became known as a pioneer in extreme sports. Training in Style competition, which is gymnastics at 200 mph, she won four gold medals and one bronze in the World Skydiving Championships, the first American woman to do so. Maria went on to travel the world over the next 30 years, becoming a fierce competitor in extreme sports and developing unique entrepreneurial “projects” in media and production. Maria’s “project” company called, A Big Pro-

32 enj oy b eaut y in t e rn a t i on a l .c om

duction Company, is what launched her into the media publishing industry over 20 years ago. “Through this company, I developed creative projects within niche industries when I saw a need.” Maria says. “This effort developed into publishing and TV production. All I do is still developed under this company.” Maria contributes her success to her ability to foretell coming trends. In the late ‘90s when cosmetic surgery was starting to become popular, she intuited that information needed to be disseminated to the public. So, she started the first cosmetic surgery magazine, which led to a TV show. This expanded into covering stories worldwide on spas, resorts, fashion, fitness, wellness, beauty products and related fields. The TV show was selected to air on airline in-flight programming worldwide. After China Airlines picked up the series, she started distributing beauty products into China and Southeast Asia. She was enjoying what is now called a "lifestyle business.” In the middle of these adventures, another tragedy struck when the home she had built burned to the ground less than ten years after

her first house fire. After loosing all she had a second time, she traveled to find depth and inner power. She was invited on an extreme expedition in East Irian Jaya, New Guinea where she was featured in a movie parachuting into a remote headhunter village. Subsequently, the whole crew was imprisoned. Business travels took her to Europe where she worked for four years bridging relationships between EU and American companies. New ventures were created, such as adventure tours for Europeans traveling to U.S. She went on to produce major events for companies such as Evian Water, Chrysler Motor and Sundance Film Festival. Throughout all of her adventures, she kept up with the extreme sports competitions and became a three-time National Champion in Para Ski, which combines highly skilled parachuting and giant slalom ski racing. “Through my experiences, I gained more confidence in myself and the awareness of how to move in life so that the material world was servicing my higher spiritual life purpose,” Maria says. “Along with my ventures and adventures, I devoted myself to developing my spiritual side, which lead me to become a scholar in the internal martial arts philosophies and mastery.” Her foundation in internal martial arts is what she contributes to her success in becoming a mind/body expert and winning multiple world championships. Today, her journey has come full circle as she shares her wisdom teachings with others in her upcoming book; Dragons – Tigers and Lipstick.

“My goal in writing Dragons Tigers and Lipstick is to share how to find your inner warrior power. During the Beauty TV show that I produced for over 11 years, I worked with over 400 women.

My mission is to help inspire women to find their inner warrior power as they reinvent and create themselves into their own brand.

This focus has grown into the formation of an online school where others can learn how to travel and live an amazing lifestyle through producing their own niche magazine. The classes go beyond taking a “writing course.” Maria explains, “I want to share how to really do the business. Owning your own media is the key and is what opens the door as you travel.”

As an inveterate traveler who has logged hundreds of thousands of miles parachuting from the sky and criss-crossing the globe – and as a deep thinker who travels within herself to the warrior spirit at the core of her being, she has learned that it takes more than a writing class to bring about creativity.

he ancient art of purifying, cleansing, and harmonizing your living space has returned and is passionately thriving as high-end homeowners are clearing out clutter, adding spiritual spaces, and transforming architectural style and spacial decor with feng shui designs that nourish, enhance, and enrich the lives of those who dwell therein. the oppressive weight of riotous home environments that scream for attention, produce negativity and turmoil, and drain your energy are being replaced by physical environments that encourage beauty, cocooning, protection, soothing relaxation, and restful mental and spiritual peace.

Comfort and proportion, placement and harmony, along with sleek, minimalist decor are introduced, creating a calm, balanced, uncluttered setting against an imposing world.

HOME,  SWEEt  HOME Serene living is in. Chaotic living is out. Some believe it to be an outcry against our increasingly mobile age. Today’s home designs incorporate techniques that harness the chi and invoke empowering, loving energy for inhabitants.

Select homeowners are collaborating with talented architects, landscape architects, interior designers, and feng shui experts to embrace a new kind of home decor using centuries-old traditions with luxurious, modern style. 42 en joy beaut y int er n at ion a l .c om

Sparsely furnished interiors and clean lines are the mantra as influential homeowners seek balanced living within their own home sanctuary.

Noise pollution is neutralized as the myriad of modern day sounds we humans emit with our traffic, machinery, appliances, loud music and voices are all dissolved. Frenzied occupants relax, unwind and find their nirvana as programmed soft background sound vibrations support peace and harmony.

Asian-inspired design spaces with expansive sliding glass doors lead to meditative Japanese gardens with a gently owing stream or a reective lily pond. Incorporating outdoor elements whenever possible, interiors open to inviting natural courtyards with calming foliage and uncommon fauna or contemporary-style inďŹ nity pools and spas adorned with majestic Buddha statues and breathtaking panoramic views. Restful water features, stonework, metals, and natural woods like maple, bamboo, and oak complement bright, open interiors that inten-

tionally combine colors, shapes, and textures, bringing purity and energy to living spaces, creating health, wealth, and happiness, as well as simply looking gorgeous and feeling fabulous to live in.

Holy objects, longevity and infinity symbols, personal treasures, natural elements and special amulets are also selectively added to dispel negativity in the auric field and to welcome harmony, happiness, and success.

Water features and gentle ambient chimes allure and harmonize dwellers’ mental energy and emotions, melting away mind- chatter, conflict and stress.

Inspiration, reflection, stillness help restore our sense of soul and lift our sense of living life to the fullest. We become keenly aware of an atmosphere that touches our deepest senses. The atmosphere of one place can be different from another, though sometimes only subtly,

Quiet solitude mixed with gentle, balanced,

beautifully uncluttered interiors influence us both consciously and unconsciously. Uplifted spirits, inner tranquility and peace, a sense of restful contentment are an increasingly growing focus for homeowners. Home is where we can disentangle mangled living, stop the struggle, and access peace through personal discipline. Farewell to overcrowded workout facilities.

but those differences can profoundly influence our moods and stimulate our spirit. Whether you want to build a new home or bring extraordinary beauty and harmony to your existing home or environment, by renewing your home you also renew your life, your soul. You may even find that the things you enjoy the most are not things after all.

Living in th Tree Houses: The Future of Eco Retreats? By Beatrice Hochegger

Were you a child who loved to play outside in nature, climb trees and dream of your own tree house? thanks to some very inspiring architects from around the world, the wish of living close to nature is coming true for many. the focus is becoming mainstream for developing sustainable homes, hotels and eco resorts within trees and parks that help escape the stressful and concrete driven city life.

APPR OACH ONE One with the Birds

A wonderful approach of building sustainable tree houses serving as temporary hotels is the project “One With the Birds” which was developed by Penda, a design collective with its roots in Vienna, Austria and Beijing, China. One With the Birds was developed as part of the AIM Legend of the Tent competition taking place in China. The goal was to create a tentthemed, low-impact hotel that connects with nature. The unique concept, inspired by Native American tipis, is built from a bamboo structural foundation, which is very flexible and can be expanded vertically and horizontally. Being in one of these “Bamboo Tree Houses” not only creates the feeling of floating, but also provides the experience of a child climbing a tree along with amazing views and being one with the birds. This is exactly the feeling many of us are seeking. 48 enj oy b eau t y in t er n a t io n a l .c om

The biggest advantage of One with the Birds tree houses is that the innovative design is built in a responsible and eco-friendly way with materials which are not fixed with nails, but instead tied together with rope so the bamboo is not damaged and can be reused to rebuild the tree house in other locations.

This is the creation of the Portugal based design studio of LuĂ­s Rebelo de Andrade and Tiago Rebelo de Andrade. They have been working together with the architect Diogo Aguiar to create a wonderful and innovative eco-resort within the famous spa town of Parque de Pedras Salgadas in Portugal.

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

The project consists of seven “tree snake houses,” which have been built in harmony with the beautiful nature surrounding it. Because of the flat level the cabins are built on and the colors of the wood and slate tiles used, the structures take on the look of a snake that is gliding between the trees.

e njoyb e auty int er na ti onal .co m


All of the structures consist of an entrance, bathroom, living room and sleeping area that offer a peaceful getaway for visitors of the park. Using a prototype tested new technology that allows for easy-carrying and weightless construction, the architects were able to protect the sacred spaces of nature. Furthermore, building the tree houses out of native raw materials like slate and wood, solar panels, a water reuse system and LED lighting strengthened the characteristics of being an eco retreat. Finally, I was asking myself the question: Are tree houses the future of eco resorts? In my opinion, it is definitely a possibility. Driven by the trend of being green and sustainable as well as going back to the roots, the offer of retreats that are aware of the nature and mother earth is growing. The change of thinking and the desire to escape a busy lifestyle create a new demand and fortunately, the tourism and wellness industry is responding to it. A great variety of eco resorts in the form of tree houses gives people with different needs and income levels the chance to reconnect with nature and hopefully, this movement will grow in the future.

A New Invitation What brought me to Indonesia this time was an invitation to teach Chinese Fan Dance as a Guest Artist at Spa Village Tembok Resort, a property of the prestigious YTL Hotel Group of Malaysia. But before heading up the coast to Tembok where it is fairly remote, I ventured to the little village of Ubud, for I was told it was really special. I was not disappointed.

My stay was absolutely wonderful with options such as an original hamman, a salt water oat room (that was my high-point) along with outdoor plunge pools and every type of treatment room imaginable.

the Asclepios Mission  the mission at asclepios is for everyone who visits to actively participate in their wellbeing. Pure air, pure water, pure food, pure thoughts are essential to good health and happiness. asclepios delivers these components for your stay. i was impressed during my visit to asclepios as no cost seemed to stop the building out of all that was necessary to deliver the traditional health techniques of Greece, and, not only with regard to the physical body, but the psyche also.

the Inspiration behind Asclepios – Marisia Jiménez 

studied homeopathy at regent’s College in london.

Marisia jiménez, owner and developer of asclepios is from San jose, Costa rica and a professional naturopath who graduated from Daniel Kieffer’s european College of traditional holistic naturopathy in Paris, France.

Marisia has also studied the Flower essence systems, such as Dr. bach’s original method, along with andreas Korte and the local Costa rican essences. Marisia uses flower essences as a complementary therapy for all mental and emotional healing processes, which she believes are almost always at the root of disharmony and disease in the human being. before becoming involved in the healing field, Marisia worked as a lawyer for 17 years, and holds an honors degree in law from the autonomous university of Central america, in Costa rica.

During her stay in Paris, Marisia studied at the Michel larroche School, learning about energy medicine and the analysis and recoding of cells. then the Patrick Drouot Method taught her the techniques and applications of the Science of Consciousness, while she also

A Sample of  a Week-Long  Healing Program: Programs at asclepios run from Monday through Sunday, every week of the year. (the recommended stay for programs are one week, but three weeks are even better for the entire program.)

The Future and Ev


ver the last ten years, our lives have dramatically changed as a result of new technologies. For many of us, the ways we live and do business have changed forever. The tipping point of these new technologies has spawned a new division of the global workforce, allowing people to work from the comforts of home or while traveling and exploring the globe. This has also rapidly amplified our ability to share information and multiply our social and professional networks. These newfound freedoms and flexibilities have transformed the way we look at our lifestyles. Today, heading to the office may 98 enj oy b eaut y i nt ern at ion a l .c o m

05 AND 2012

According to an American Community Survey, “telecommuting has risen 79 percent between 2005 and 2012.” This estimate includes 2.6 percent or 3.3 million full-time U. S. teleworkers in 2012. sites the statistical growth of telecommuting in the U.S. throughout a myriad of different industries, with all data pointing the continuous growth of this dynamic remote workforce. e njoyb e auty int er na tional .com


What does this mean for the future of our lifestyles? It means the lines will continue to cross between life, work and social experiences. The task of balancing our freedom and flexibility will become essential. New tools will endure to help people cope, manage busy routines, and assist in performance, metrics and business management. Some of these new technologies already include 3-D printing, holographic imaging and an expansive line of virtual reality and wellness devices. Wearable devices are only the beginning of technology merging with our biology and lifestyle. This increase in technology will create an enhanced need for person-to-person connectivity, with a rise in new social activities to substitute the experiences of meeting people “at work” and having regular face-to-face engagement. Finding a healthy, social equilibrium will be key to enjoying the freedom and flexibility of working on a version of Cloud 9.



WIDE In addition to the growing number of people in the remote workforce, educational programs and home schooling platforms are seeing similar growth. Together these two elements are redefining the conventional family. When living nearby work or school are no longer household factors, the doors to the world are open wide. These are major shifts in our lifestyle definitions and they will directly impact how we exist and interact in the world in our future lifestyles.

Other components we are seeing on the rise are business travel and teleconferences. Meetings no longer require the traditional environment of a boardroom. Many executives and business professionals around the world are combining business meetings with retreat experiences, as a way to add more depth and discovery to the meeting process. This approach is rich with inspiration and balances the intensity of work with a healthy combination of relaxation and rejuvenation. Companies are beginning to recognize the importance of company-wide wellness and employee health is becoming a high priority. Ultimately, our lifestyles are rapidly evolving. The future holds exciting opportunities and incredible technologies that guarantee more freedom and flexibility for all of us. How we choose to use that freedom and enjoy that flexibility is up to each of us. One thing is certain in order to live well in any lifestyle; it’s important to follow your heart. Do what you love. Believe in yourself and make your routine one that supports your happiness, growth and personal measures of success. Whatever your path, embrace your lifestyle. Be grateful for your freedom and stretch your legs to remind yourself; you always have the flexibility to choose.

Sell everything!! then travel the world to find your new home THE LESSONS I LEARNED i had been living in brooklyn with my husband noah and then-2-year-old daughter lila. “let’s sell everything we own and travel,” said noah one afternoon.“that’s insane,” i thought, and then before it came out of my mouth, i said “Why not?” and, that is exactly what we did. We weren’t happy anymore in brooklyn. the life felt too confining with children. We wanted space. We wanted to explore the world. We knew we wanted something different, but we had no idea what to expect. So, we slowly sorted through our things, got rid of what we didn’t need and packed a few small bags to take along on our journey.

e njoyb e aut yinte rna t ional .com


It’s been seven years since we locked the door of our Brooklyn apartment for the last time, and in that time, we’ve traveled through four continents, 25 countries, and I-don’t-know how many cities. Each place showed us something new, something unique, something beautiful. I loved the yoga, the artist community and the farmers’ market in Buffalo. France offered gorgeous scenery and amazing food. In Panama, we lived on a tiny island with no roads or even a path to ride a bicycle. The rhythmic sound of waves sloshing under our house woke us each morning. We made friends all over the planet, and each time we left, we had to say another goodbye. You get good at goodbyes. You leave space in your life for people who live far away yet you learn to keep them close anyway. Most of all, I understood how the act of travel shows you how to be happy when not connected to a place. In truth, there is no one place in the world that will serve all your needs. Nowhere and nothing is perfect. The best thing you can do is focus on that which makes you most happy and balance everything else. How does one pick up everything to move? Ask yourself, “Am I happy?” Are you truly content where you are living and with what you’re doing? If not, what would you rather do. The key to leaving everything you know, I believe, is that when you leave, you must move toward something you want, not running from some106 en joy beau t y in t er n a tio n a l .c om

thing you want to escape. Once you make the decision, commit to it by purchasing a ticket to somewhere you’ve always wanted to go. Between then and the time you leave, you slowly start sorting through everything you own. Sell or donate what you don’t want, keep only what you must have. You’ll find you need far less than you think, and the longer you travel, the less you need. In fact, experiences become your comfort instead of things. How do you decide when you want to stay?

One day, you’ll feel tired of the constant movement. You’ll have seen enough places and slept in enough beds, so that when you arrive in a place that’s for you, you’ll know. You’ll find a place to live, choose your favorite places to buy groceries and you don’t want to leave, not yet, just one more day. I wandered in such a way for three years before settling in NW Argentina. Now, I live in the mountains and I write for a living.

Spiritual Nomad INtERVIEW WItH A tRAVELINg SHAMAN By Maria Camille The sacred temple of Pura Pasar Agung

While on assignment in Costa Rica, I caught up with world traveling shaman named John Paul Fischbach.  We discussed the phenomenon I’ve been noticing of increasing numbers of spiritual travelers. John Paul shared his thoughts: “We have the exciting chance and rare opportunity to create a better world, and many of us are being called to re-member and reconnect with sacred sites around the planet” Beauty, community, love, peace, abundance, harmony …. These are the values that are leading many of us to pull up roots and journey to other places. Over the past four years I’ve met many fellow travelers who repeat the same phrase, “I don’t know, I just felt a call to be here.” I now refer to us as spiritual nomads; travelers exploring this amazing planet, honoring the magnetic pull, and letting our souls guide us to places of deep spiritual significance. So many of us are in motion. We no longer look for the perfect place to spend our lives… we look for the next place. When we give up trying to control our destiny allow the river to carry us, amazing things start to happen. We

e njoyb e auty int er na ti onal .co m


find kindred spirits among our fellow travelers. These aren’t the coincidental relationships that used to happen on holiday, these are opportunities for deep conversations. We meet each other with a shared feeling of re-connecting at a deep level about the amazing multidimensional world. We have conversations that are affirmations and re-affirmations of our journey. We exchange lists of must see and must do. We exchange exciting stories of discovery imbued with the energy of explorers. If you hear the call or feel that unsettling feeling, I suggest you heed the “little voice” and set out. The earth has power spots. These spots communicate directly with your soul. It feels like coming home. It feels like a calling to do and see and be.

traveling to Scared Sites John Paul’s unique gift is being a “site whisperer” He travels to sacred sites and asks the spirits of the place to share wisdom, stories and answer questions about the history, creation, use and power of the site. When I asked him how this works he explained, “I think that the time is right for the sharing of information. When I go to these places with an attitude of honor, humility, love and respect, the spirits of the place appear and are eager and happy to show me around, share knowledge and answer questions. Sometimes it is channelling a spirit guide and some times it is seeing a parallel dimension.

After chatting with the spirits from the Stone Age I emerge from a burial crypt Taversoe Tuick on the Barren Orkney Islands of far Northern Scotland.

John shared that he will be producing a documentary series, which will offer 4 bridges of understanding into the mystery of these sacred sites. What does archaeology tell us about a site? What does legend and oral tradition tell us? What can we learn from the physics and magnetic energy of the site? And finally, what do the spirits have to share?

“I often tell people to use the Medicine Wheel as your compass. If you are currently living North of the Equator…

If you are ready to explore and undertake a Spiritual nomadic quest John Paul offers this suggestion.

Your first destination is just the starting place. There is so much to learn and discover that the journey never ends.”
