ALCHEMIZE BEAUTY

WITH KARLA DASCAL OF THE SACRED SPACE MIAMI

AS THOUGHTFUL AND CONSCIOUS PEOPLE, WE KNOW THAT HOW A THING, PLACE, OR PERSON LOOKS DOESN'T DEFINE THEIR VALUE. IN FACT, FAR FROM IT. SOMETIMES THE MOST HUMBLE-LOOKING OBJECTS ARE THE ONES THAT MAKE THE DEEPEST IMPACT. BUT THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT WALKING INTO A SPACE THAT'S BEAUTIFULLY, INTENTIONALLY DESIGNED THAT IMMEDIATELY BRIGHTENS YOUR SPIRIT.

STEPPING INTO THE SUN-DRENCHED SACRED SPACE MIAMI, YOU'LL PHYSICALLY FEEL A SHIFT. A WAVE OF CALM WASHES OVER YOU, AND FOR THE FIRST TIME IN YOUR LIFE YOU FEEL LIKE ACHIEVING NIRVANA MIGHT *ACTUALLY* BE POSSIBLE. THE SACRED SPACE IS A UNIQUE VENUE THAT PERFECTLY EMBODIES MIAMI'S WELLNESS SCENE, AND OFFERS A POSITIVELY NECESSARY PLACE FOR SEEKERS LOOKING FOR LIKE MINDED COMMUNITY.

KARLA DASCAL, THE WOMAN BEHIND SACRED SPACE MIAMI, HAS COMBINED WELLNESS, PLANT-BASED FOOD, AND COMMUNITY ALL UNDER ONE GORGEOUS ROOF. TO KARLA, THE PHYSICAL BEAUTY OF SACRED SPACE MIAMI IS A MANIFESTATION OF THE BEAUTIFUL SPIRITUAL AND EMOTIONAL TRANSFORMATIONS THAT HAPPEN INSIDE THE VENUE. "HEALING MYSELF SO I CAN HEAL OTHERS AND PLANET IS HOW I BRING BEAUTY INTO THE WORLD," SAYS KARLA.

WHAT IS BEAUTY, TO YOU?

TO ME, BEAUTY IS NATURE, PEACE, STILLNESS, TRANQUILITY, HARMONY. BALANCE RADIATING FROM THE INSIDE OUT AN ELEVATING VIBRATION OF LOVING ENERGY.

SACRED SPACE IS GORGEOUS—WHAT INSPIRED YOUR DESIGN AND AESTHETIC?

THE INSPIRATION CAME FROM DESIGNING A PLACE WHERE PEOPLE AND THE COMMUNITY COULD LEARN TO BE SELF-REALIZED. I WANTED PEOPLE TO LOVE THEMSELVES IN A COMFORTABLE, SUBTROPICAL ENVIRONMENT WITHOUT THE THOUGHT THAT THEY WOULD HAVE TO GIVE UP THEIR LIVES AND GO TO THE HIMALAYAS

WHY ARE AESTHETICS IMPORTANT IN A SPECIAL PLACE LIKE SACRED SPACE?

THE SACRED SPACE IS MAGICAL. IT'S LOCATED BETWEEN A WATER FEATURE AND A TROPICAL LANDSCAPE, AND THAT PRODUCES NO SENSE OF 'URGENCY.'  IT IS PEACEFUL, AND PEOPLE SENSE THAT.
