phenom-cover11-5_2BOOK WISE Summer 2017 Pick: This Phenomenal Life –the amazing ways we are connected with our Universe’

CATEGORY: Non-Fiction Nature/Science/Art

CULTURE SPOTLIGHT: The Entire Universe

AUTHOR: Misha Maynerick Blaise

Publishers Weekly Review: “Whimsically hip illustrations elucidate wild science-based facts, from the unexpected intimacy we have with fungi on a daily basis, to the similar ways that humans and birds learn to communicate. Powerful evidence of our interconnection with nature combined with beautiful artwork will inspire the reader to look at the world in a whole new way.”

WWB Note: Inspiring, informative and will tickle your mind and spirit!

 
On the eve of the Solar Eclipse, I thought it was perfect timing to announce the Summer ‘Book Wise’ pick. Tomorrow we will view an amazing ‘show in the sky’ and perhaps it will remind us how awesome this universe is, and how we are connected to everything around us. The ‘Book Wise’ Summer selection is an exploration and celebration of this very idea. The title says it all, and the illustrative content is stimulating and delightful. It’s the perfect book to take camping or to the beach, when you are relaxed, and can really contemplate with the author how phenomenal this world really is. The Solar Eclipse couldn’t have come at better time. Perhaps it’s time we all snap out of our self-absorption and unify around one important mission. Let’s save this planet and leave it for many more generations to enjoy and appreciate. The author’s introduction is wonderful and I will share an excerpt below with you. Hopefully it will inspire you to read this book and share it with friends far and wide. A great mission needs a great many friends! Enjoy the Solar Eclipse and find comfort in the fact that millions of us (of multiple ethnicities and political stripes)  across this country will be looking up at the Sun and the Moon together. Now that’s pretty phenomenal! 🙂

Author Excerpt: ” Few can deny the majesty of a starry sky when gazed upon far from the light pollution of a city, or the thrill of exploring a dense forest miles away from a dreary strip mall. Getting out into nature expands our perspective and revitalizes our spirits. For those of us who live in urban settings, it can sometimes feel like the wilderness is a world away. But the reality is in every moment of every day, no matter where you are, you are deeply connected to the wild, mysterious processes of the universe.”

Founder of World Wise Beauty Introduces the A+ Life Day Retreat Celebrating Healthy Epicurean Lifestyle & Living Life Well On Your Own Terms…

Hi World Wise Beauty,

Yes, that’s you, the woman who is comfortable in her own skin or in the process of becoming comfortable in her own skin. The best way to achieve this, I believe, is to FEEL comfortable in your own skin.  The only way we can do that is to have a loving and healthy relationship with our body, mind & spirit. Our health and well-being is related to all three, and we just can’t be comfortable in our own skin, if our body and spirit are screaming for help. Beauty has always been a metaphor here at World Wise Beauty. A metaphor for the beauty inside and all around us. I spend most of my time at WWB interviewing authors, experts and visionaries in wellness culture who have a passion for sharing their wisdom and expertise with us.  I’ll continue this tradition and will be introducing a new platform for the WWB Q&A’s soon. This current platform needs some rejuvenation and I want to make the books and interviews I feature more accessible and easy to find. Which brings me to another exciting announcement…

Celebrating and cultivating wellness wisdom and culture I’m thrilled to announce my new event edutainment company Rise of Wise presents and the first production out of the gate is the A+Life Retreat. World Wise Beauty will remain the digital platform and Rise of Wise presents will bring ideals for wellness culture to life via live forums. Working in the spa world and professionally producing an event for the industry, I was fortunate to be exposed to many wonderful wellness modalities coming from all corners of the world. I also reported on some of these amazing modalities for the Day Spa Association here in the U.S and a Travel Magazine abroad. What I came away with is wellness wisdom is found all over the world, and it thrives in cultures that put wellness values at the center of their living. In fact, wellness is more baked into the culture, and not necessarily called wellness.  Wellness is a lifestyle, a mindset and most importantly it’s a collective value. In short, it matters greatly…

One thing I find frustrating, is how wellness is suddenly being perceived as a luxury asset, rather than an absolute necessity for our entire culture. True wellness wisdom has always been available and accessible to us all, and much of it already researched and proven by scientist and medical experts. As a side note, there is an organization here in the United States called the ‘True Health Initiative’ which is a global consensus and conglomerate of doctors, experts and scientist from around the world who are on a mission to promote ‘Lifestyle as Medicine’. This is such an important initiative because we already know how many chronic diseases can be avoided, and even how to live longer healthy and free of disease. In addition there is a lot being discovered in the field of brain science, and we are understanding much more how stress can affect our overall immune system, and how we personally can manage it, so it doesn’t wreak havoc on our health and well-being. The answers we are looking for can be found not in the next greatest drug, or trendy diet, but in our own daily habits and understanding of our own unique bodies. We all possess our own inner-wisdom and it truly is priceless…

Because no-one can live your life as well as you! This is our mantra at the A+Life Retreat, and we are celebrating bio-individuality, lifestyle as medicine and healthy epicurean living! This is your day to focus on yourself and think about what best rituals, practices and habits work best for your unique body and lifestyle. AND not to be forgotten, finding pleasure in the lifestyle habits you adopt. Otherwise what is the point?  If you don’t like Kale it’s OKAY! Really!! The future is ‘personalized wellness and medicine’, and it’s also channeling the wisdom of the past, which has always been there for us. The ancient Greek father of medicine ‘Hippocrates’ said these enlightening words many centuries ago…

“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.”

” If we could give every individual the right amount of nourishment and exercise, not too little and not too much, we would have found the safest way to health”

I have invited 5 passionate international wellness experts and authors to come share their wellness wisdom with you and to help demystify all the confusing information we are receiving about diets, food and nutrition.  Two are International Gourmand winners! One is a Chef and expert on ancient wellness wisdom and the other is a doctor who is recognized world-wide as an expert on Mediterranean lifestyle and diets. One is an icon in the natural beauty/wellness community and another is a well respected MD specializing in the very important area of burnout and stress-management. Last but not least we have an author who will give you a tour of the world’s cuisines and unpack the health and longevity secrets each of them hold. The A+Life Retreat has your Wholistic wellness top of mind and it’s going to be a fun and stimulating day of exploring self-care and renewal. I use the term ‘Healthy Epicurean’ because when you practice living well, it truly is pleasurable. At the A+Life Retreat, we set out to show you just how pleasurable living well on your own terms can be.

Visit the website https://www.riseofwise.com and learn more about our fabulous speakers and the enjoyable day we have planned for you at the A+Life Retreat. I realize some of you are not in the Tri-State area of Princeton, so please keep following World Wise Beauty for insightful interviews with authors and experts in wellness culture. We’ll work on taking the retreat on the road soon to you!
