Capturing Beauty 101

posted Jan 5, 2010, 6:33 PM by Unknown user

Usually we are so stressed that we forget to slow down and observe beauty around us... This is an invitation to a very simple exercise that will help us develop the capacity of contemplation.

  1. Get a digital camera.
  2. Take a walk in the surroundings of your home, maximum two blocks far.
  3. Walk very slow, paying attention to the details around you.
  4. Capture those beautiful things you see with your camera.
  5. Share that beauty by uploading your best picture in the facebook event latest Sunday 17th January.
  6. Share your impressions on the exercise in the wall of the event, so that we start to let beauty unfold as a tribe!

We will be running this exercises every month and will pick the best picture to profile it in the front page of our website with credits to the winner!

The winner will be selected by the amount of "likes" the picture gets in the facebook event!

Invite your friends to join you, it is a very cool exercise, guaranteed!

Have a beautiful walk around your place!

The Beautiful Tribe.

This quote from Lin Yutang gives the perfect background for the launch of Beautiful Readings.

Very often we get asked about books we recommend people to read to get started in the path of a Beautiful Living: 'What should I read first?' or 'After listening to my story, what books do you recommend me to start with?'.

Well, the answer is not always simple, we do not believe in 'bibles'.

What we have decided to do is to give you a selection of books we recommend. Books that have been very useful to us along our path of creating this social construction.

It is important to state that some of this books may not be what you will expect. So please bare in mind that keeping and open heart and an open mind when starting to read a book will allow for the inner message that book has for you to emerge. After all, it is not randomly that it did arrive to your hands.

In Beautiful Readings we have prepared a small collection of books. You can find them from your friends, buy them on a bookstore near home or buy them from Amazon directly in our website.

We will keep in increasing the books' selection and the categories; at the same time we will love to hear from some of your suggestions on books that you have read and that have been meaningful to you.

You can send your suggestions to 

Enjoy your reading!

My Christmas Eve...

posted Dec 24, 2009, 6:30 PM by Dey Dos   [ updated Dec 24, 2009, 6:36 PM ]

It is Christmas Eve... Right now 02:36 in the morning of the 25th of December... And I am here, working on a dream, one a dream that is emerging as reality...

This is my handcraft, product of a life time of boldness and being a maverick.

I decided that the website will be like this, minimalist, simple, without too much of the web vibe of today, more like I like things, full of details and with a lot of meaning, love and intention.

This site is made out of my ignorance. I know how to design the sites structures, and what tools and widgets can the developers use, but I am not a developer.

However, still I wanted it this way, mine. 
My way.

Because this is my dream, that has been cooking for too long. 

Beautiful Individuals is a social construction that raised in my life initially as the dream of a 'soul spa', and that - day by day - got covered by the dust of time, but when cleaning the house, and every time that the twister of life made a visit, I was able to see...

Why Beautiful Individuals?
I don't really remember when started, but it has been with me for a long, long time. For the ones of you that know me, you got it. It is my brand, it is what I believe, it the statement I am. 

A statement for beautiful individuals that make this world a more beautiful place to live.

Soon, I will be sending more news about Beautiful Individuals.

For the moment, this is my gift and my wish.
To myself and to all of you...


To all the male and female beautiful individuals of my life...

My wishes are not wishes any longer,
they are statements of gratitude to all of you!

Because we are all beautiful.

Right now, this for me are good news my friends. 
Merry Christmas!

Love tons,


A story of love and beauty...

For many years I have been exploring who I am, trying to give explanations to the things I think, do and feel.

Focusing with so much strength in that question -who am I?- seems to have debilitated my capacity to see what it is obvious now: who I am is not and does not need an explication, is a fact.

I am. 
Complex, but simple.

The journey has been long and beautiful, full of rainy days and spectacular sunsets. A lot of beginnings and a lot of endings.

Today I stand willing and able.

Today I feel comfortable with who I am, even if I can not give an explanation to the concept, I just am.

In the ups and downs of this journey I have met loads of people. People of different cultural, ethnic and religious origin, with different beliefs and creeds, with different color on their skin. People from which I learned, and learned, and learned.

Today I want to be fair to life and be a servant. This is what has brought me here, to this space called Beautiful Individuals.

I wanna share with you how I have become able to just be, and from where I claim strength and willingness when they are needed.

The story of Beautiful Individuals is a story of love towards all the people I have met in my path, and towards all of the ones that life will bring into it in the future, but mostly to you, the people of my present, where I do exist.

Today is 21st December of 2009 and willingly I declare my intention to start a pledge aiming 
to make this world a more beautiful place, starting with ourselves.

Join me in this intention and I assure you we will succeed. There is nothing that can stop beauty from being relevant, less when a committed group of
Beautiful Individuals come together to be in the process of becoming, bringing intention to life.

These, my friends, are good news.

Love tons,
