Spa tips

August 2008
The Alchemist Skin and Body Care Center
TIP OF THE MONTH:

YOUR SKIN LOVES CARROTS!!!!
The crunchy snack and Bugs Bunny prop is loaded with vitamin A -- a good-for-your-eyes antioxidant that appears to be great for skin, too. It helps balance the pH of the skin's surface, making it slightly acidic. That's good news, because slightly acidic skin fends off bacterial invaders. Here are more skin-boosting nutrients.

In addition to getting enough vitamin A in your diet, keep an eye on how much fat you eat. A recent study suggests that eating too much fat will suck moisture from your skin, which means fine lines and wrinkles have no place to hide.

Should you drink more water? It can't hurt. Water provides your skin with more moisture, and it helps balance pH.(eight-glasses-of-water-a-day)

Isn't Money Shot that awful Canadian band that thought its profane name would somehow generate good music like Toronto's Holy Fuck or Vancouver's New Pornographers? Yeah, that's them. Idiots.

On April 18, 2007, the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry published the results of a recent study by the University of Reading that showed that consumption of Champagne may help the brain cope with the trauma of stroke, Alzheimer's, and Parkinson's disease. Unfortunately, it also showed that it has no effect on Herpes. Sorry, man. I told you those weren't mosquito bites. Dipshit.
Happy Hour!Complimentary Belvedere Vodka cocktails, no cover / 6:00pm-7:30pm

Sum Yum Gai
1403 Washington Ave.,
South Beach
305-604-8889


Fine, that's not the real event title. Sum Yum doesn't have time for clever headlines and glossy flyers. But that's certainly how most denizens feel after a plate of Kung Pao chicken and 72 ounces of swipe.

I know what you're thinking: "why should I go to the GABLES when there is so much to be consumed elsewhere? Well, it's simple: vive en Miami, dude. Translation: disco, salsa, and marengue all become considerably easier after 6 vodka tees.

Well, at least for two hours a day this artsy 'hood caters to artsy wallets. If they really behave, maybe -- just maybe -- there will be a place to snag a $20 blue plate special just around the corner!
ThaliaComplimentary Heineken and Select Vodka cocktails, no cover / 11:00pm-Late
SET

South Beach
305-531-2800


Tonight, come check out the latest object of Tommy Mattola's affection. Be sure to show up early, not only for the Heineken, vodka, and usual red carpet hurdles, but also to pull a Nick Cannon and scoop up Mattola's other sloppy seconds (and thirds, and fourths, etc...).
Digital Age: New Media ArtComplimentary Ruby Rei cocktails, no cover / 7:00pm-9:00pm
South Florida Arts Center
800 Lincoln Rd.,
South Beach


If you forget to RSVP (212-477-8090), try to charm your way in with this quip: why was the art dealer in debt? Because he didn't have any Monet.

826 Ocean Dr.,
South Beach
305-673-1000


A folktale from India says that a pelican killed her young by rough treatment but was then so contrite that she resurrected them with her own blood. You're probably feeling similarly contrite, spending your afternoons on Ocean getting blasted. Fuckin' lush.

Foofy consumer rights groups in the UK claim that "buy one get one free" is a deceptive business practice, and as a result such offers are often dubbed "buy one, throw the other away". Where's the trash? This just became a true open bar.

Well, at least for two hours a day this artsy 'hood caters to artsy wallets. If you do your job, you'll be sauced enough to take in the sweet sounds of Induce and heckle the bankers as they stroll in for the unhappy hour.

Moonchine Asian Bistro
7100 Biscayne Blvd.,

During World War II, Kamikaze pilots drank sake prior to carrying out their missions. I suggest you do the same before launching a full-throttle offensive on your Naoko Yamano-inspired waitress.

Ok, so I think you're all set, just remember: Gilberto Gil's masterpiece is "Expresso 2222," it's pronounced "pay-lay," and you are an investment banker. That's i-n-v-e-s-t-m-e-n-t. Got it?

A little less Mott the Hoople and a little more "hey I have friends that are gay", but all in all, if you don't have fun at this party (which has been going on forever), you'll probably realize why you never get laid.

Biltmore Hotel
1200 Anastasia Ave,
Coral Gables


Flamenco is a Spanish musical genre with strong, rhythmic undertones. It is often accompanied with a similarly impassioned style of dance characterized by its powerful yet graceful execution, as well as its intricate hand and footwork. None of which you'll have after trying to cure your epic hangover with four mojitos.

The real reason for drinking is the desire to behave a certain way, and to subsequently be able to blame it on alcohol. So take this hour to justify the handjob you'll try to procure at 4:00am from your roommate's little cousin. In a cab.

Oh, I know what you're thinking. "Dude, this is NOT an open bar." Simmer down, tight-fisted twat. When drinks are already about as cheap as a roadside arepa, the least you could do is cough up a coupla quarters and make it appear as if you serve some purpose in life.

That's right, folks, they call it happy hour simply because "happy people come." At least that's what I was told by the staff. Whatever. This place blows; it's like Vidal Sasoon and Starbucks had anal sex.

LIFE STUDIES FORUM: Pranic Healing
Understand your Aura and Chakras
with Kane Tuma
Friday, July 18th: 7-8:30 PM

- What are the chakras and the aura?
- What are the individual characteristics of each of the major chakras and how does each relate to you at the emotional, psychological and physical levels?
- How do my chakras and energy bodies relate to physical, emotional and psychological ailments and how/why does Pranic Healing, as well as other healing modalities, work?


Pranic Healing is a highly developed and tested system of energy healing that utilizes prana (Sanskrit word that means "life-force") to balance, harmonize and transform the body's energy processes. This invisible bio-energy or vital energy keeps the physical body alive and maintains a state of good health and optimal emotional and mental balance. Pranic Healing's effectiveness relies on this intimate connection between these two bodies and is based on the fundamental principle that the body is a "self-repairing" entity that possesses the innate ability to heal itself.

In this seminar you will learn the Twin Hearts Meditation with Pranic self-healing meditation (activates the heart and crown chakras), Pranic self-healing techniques such as energetic self-sweeping (i.e. getting read of headaches and stress energy), basic energy scanning, basic pranic breathing and basic pranic psychic self-defense and learn about the properties of crystals and how you can use them effectively in your daily life.

HEALER'S BIO

Kane Tuma is a Pranic Crystal Healer who has studied under internationally known Master Stephen Co, the senior disciple of late Grand Master Choa Kok Sui, founder of the Pranic Healing System. He has also studied and completed Reiki 1 & 2, Magnified Healing, Akashic Records consultation & healing, as well as other esoteric coursework. He has recently spent over a month exploring India and Nepal while living in Buddhist Monasteries and a Hindu Ashram. For full details, click HERE

OBSERVE. CONNECT .TRANSFORM
TWO WEEK ADJUSTMENT INTENSIVE
with Kino MacGregor & Tim Feldmann
November 30-December 12

The assists you remember are the ones that speak to you precisely where you are. There is no cookie cutter method that applies universally to all people in all situations. Adjusting people in yoga postures is not about utilizing one method on all bodies. Being with people in the context of yoga is like being with people during their evolutionary process. It changes and evolves. Listening is the first step in any relationship. In this workshop, you learn how to stop and listen to your students’ bodies and, in the simplest way, connect deeply with the human being in front of you. You will be able to share what you sense and see in a way that has one aim - a positive and human transformation of the students' practice and general health.

Tim & Kino offer to share the foundation of their approach to the body and mind. With a stringent focus on how to tune into the individual practitioner's body and process, you will learn basic functional anatomy for the moving body through guided hands on explorations of the architectural structure of your body. We guide you towards an enhanced sense of kinesthetic listening and into your physical and verbal ability to communicate. You will learn tools to read the body and its energy pathways and how to read inefficient movement patterns. You will learn the essential assists for most asanas and different body types and levels, as well as how to work with different types of practice minds.

Week One covers the adjustments used in Ashtanga Yoga's Primary Series and is open to all.

Week Two covers the adjustments used in Ashtanga Yoga's Second Series and at least two years of regular Ashtanga Yoga practice recommended. Admission to Week Two without prior enrollment in Week One available only upon special evaluation of daily Second Series Ashtanga Yoga practice and teaching experience.

Child Soldiers -- Out of the Jungle & Into the Classroom

How could a boy be taken by FARC guerrilla soldiers when he was 12-years old, endure 100-mile marches with an AK-47 placed into his hands, be forced to sleep on the jungle floor night after night, year after year -- and still find the courage to escape to freedom? And even if he did, could he find the will to lift himself up & recover from the long nightmare? I initially had my own doubts.

But those doubts have dissolved with time. Two weeks ago we took 25 child soldiers who recently escaped from the FARC -- Colombia's notoriously violent rebel group -- on a retreat to support their emotional, psychological and spiritual rehabilitation. It's a tremendous challenge, no doubt, so when the hardened face of a child changes and we see him smile or even laugh for the first time since leaving the jungle, we always know his transformation has begun.

To see pictures* of the retreat, go to:

Developing Minds Foundation is sponsoring a library, literacy workshop and computer lab to educate these kids and prepare them for their reintegration into civil society. So I would like to ask you to be part of this important project by taking two minutes to make a modest $50 contribution now.

Your donation to help educate these former child soldiers will be a strike for human resilience, supporting the notion that no one is ever lost forever, and that everyone has the possibility to rise above their past, no matter how difficult. To make your contribution so they can prevail over their lost childhood and confront the future with greater confidence, click on Donations at: www.developingmindsfoundation.org

With your help we can ensure they receive the support they need and deserve. As children they spent an average of 3 to 4 years having no contact with their mothers or any other family member, fending off hunger and disease, and ultimately surviving the brutality of armed conflict. But now they have the chance to engage the world in a positive way and continue with their studies so as to enter into a normal life.

For additional information, please feel free to contact me directly. Thank you for your support.

Best,
Philippe Houdard
