Ecuador Adventure & Surprise


Ecuador is filled with adventure surprise.

Recently Ecuador surprised the high tech world by making its own low cost drones that it will export.

An article at RT.com said Ecuador’s President Rafael Correa has unveiled the country’s first domestically made unmanned aerial vehicle. The drone is to help Quito fight drug traffic and will also be on sale in South America, costing “7 times less” than its Israeli equivalent.

We want your Ecuador adventure to be exciting but safe and without unwanted surprise.  This is why you might enjoy the “Ecuador Get Togethers” sponsored by Roberto Ribadeneira.  He is a logistics expert used to moving tens of thousands of roses and other products from the farm to the plane to the USA to the home.  He uses the same skills to help our readers learn about Ecuador.

Currently Roberto has a special two for one offer on the upcoming Ecuador Get Together combined with Coastal and Cuenca tours.

Here is a note Roberto sent for me to share.

Adventure in Ecuador. Ecuador “Get Togethers” in Quito

Join us in Quito, on the coast and in Cuenca

The Ecuador Get Together in Quito and Coastal and Cuenca Real Estate tours show Ecuador in many different ways.

ecuador tour

I am very good at logistics, having worked in the flower business for many years and before that managing logistics at a big company.

Planning a good adventure comes easy to me.

Quito is the first window of a country that is rapidly developing. But Quito is a big city and has typical big city problems.  Many people prefer smaller towns and villages as places to retire in Ecuador.

Quito has big city benefits. Quito has some of the best Hospitals in South America. You can buy the best imported cars, get and use all the new technology. Quito has big malls, amazing parks, and a brand new airport. A subway is under construction.  Ecuador’s compact geography means  you can enjoy living in smaller towns like Cuenca or Bahia but be in Quito quickly when you desire.

Our Two Day Ecuador Get Together with many speakers from Quito who give you the first taste of a country that has it all.

But the best way to see everything is to actually see everything.  Pictures and testimonies are fine.  They provide ideas. The real knowing of a country comes from actual exploring, talking to people, seeing the places, eating the food, traveling the roads, staying at the hotels, being in the country.

At Finlandia in Quito (November Seminar)

Hotel Finlandia is at the heart of the financial area. People that attended our last November 2013 Get Together got to know Quito by walking around the area.

One delegate is very fond of finding great and trying different types of foods. He found this tiny restaurant with local food, prices were below $4.00 for an entire meal including juice and dessert. He said it was delicious.

Others enjoyed the mall two blocks from the hotel.  Others frequented the coffee shops and found Ecuador’s mountain grown coffee amazing,

Many delegates enjoyed a new cafe that sells the best ice cream in city.

Others enjoy the really fine restaurants that serve international cuisine that can be as much as $35 for a complete meal.

One couple told me over lunch that when they were coming back to the Hotel a very elegant lady saw them and invited them to her apartment. They enjoyed her place and enjoyed conversing with her.

Others shopped in the indigenous stalls buy native crafts.

Many commented on how many new cars there are in Quito.  Many found Ecuadorians friendly and helpful.

This is why so many who join us for our Ecuador Get Togethers fall in love with the country.

The “Get Togethers’ do exactly that… get you together with Ecuadorians so you can see if your dreams of our country are true for you.

Financial District (where we hold our Seminar)

The seminar helps you learn how to enjoy the important technology that you are accustomed to in the USA.

We have a session on how to see your favorite movies, listen to your local radio, see TV shows you like, make international phone calls and access the internet.

Watch Your Favorite Shows in Ecuador

For example you can watch your favorite  TV shows in many different ways, from Netflix (with  an IP address change) to Hulu. Your radio stations are available through a free Pandora service.  We also show how to get the magazines and books you want using Zinio.

We’ll show how you can have friends and family reach you in Ecuador by calling a  USA phone number.  We’ll help you set up your cell phone so it works in Ecuador.

The Get Together also has a session on how to get what you want and need from local markets.

Here is an example. There is a woman who sells me all my fruits.  She is so kind, I make it a point to be extra nice to her.  I discovered she has tow prices levels. One for me and a higher one for those who are not polite.  We’ll teach you how to get better prices for everything from seafood, to spices, to alcohol by being a  “patrone” in the market for your won special “caseras”.

This special connection with Ecuadorians is what make Ecuador special. The small details of the local life really matter and these details only come from experience and a guiding hand in the beginning.  Once you learn how to really get to know get to know the people Ecuador truly is a paradise.

That is what we will like to show you, to make you fee the things that will make you fall in love with our country, or not.

This is our goal in the Get Togethers… to give toy our heartfelt, honest experience of what your life will be in Ecuador.

Other sessions give you insights into the cultural differences that only Ecuadorians can explain. Learn why when “we” tell you we will meet at 17:00 we arrive at 17:15. Learn how and why “we will be there in 5 minutes” actually means 15 minutes. Find out the difference between formal business meetings and informal gatherings with friends and family.  This is important.  If you are invited to a party at 20:00, don’t show up on time or you and your host will be embarrassed.  Arrive at least an hour late.

An M.D. who attended wrote:   We want to thank you plus all the others for making the class such a fun and rewarding experience.   I took Spanish as an undergraduate and lasted two days before dropping the class due to my own anxieties.  Over the years I have tried to learn French, Italian, and Spanish yet again using a variety of methods such as Rosetta Stone, Berlitz etc. and was never successful.  I finally feel like I can be successful at learning to converse at Spanish–in fact already feel successful!  Thanks so much for teaching an old dog some new tricks.  We’re both looking forward to continuing the learning process, having fun doing so, and taking more classes.

Our Super Thinking + Spanish courses are Spanish course that goes way beyond just learning to speak Spanish.

Spanish is the second largest language in the world. Chances are a huge Spanish speaking population lives near you. Yet our language system did not teach us how to communicate with or understand this culture.

Learning Spanish is valuable and important.  Now there is way, to enjoy a long weekend as you learn Spanish at a very affordable price.

Unlock the power of your untapped knowledge.

There are numerous little known, but scientifically proven ways to enhance the speed, accuracy and efficiency of your decision making process for greater wealth, health and happiness. In just three days you can gain almost amazing learning skills.  Plus you become skilled in Spanish as a bonus.

In just three days?

Sound too good to be true?

This is not a gimmick nor a trick. At least three best selling books, Superlearning, the Mozart Effect and Superlearning 2000 have revealed insights about how we can learn and think more powerfully based on systems drawn from the Bulgarian, Dr. Georgi Lozanov.

In 1980 Superlearning sold over two million copies and showed how the Lozanov learning system blended long-tested sciences of yoga with contemporary physiology and psychology so people could learn faster and better.

This book exposed this fact and made the system so popular that Dr. Lozanov was allowed to visit the US from Bulgaria to teach this system to just a very few people so they could pass on this vital information on how to learn and think in a more natural, powerful way so we can enjoy life and enhanced memory more.

Merri was among those few who learned how and is licensed to teach the Lozanov system from this Bulgarian master. She has organized a practical course on how to learn faster and better.

With her modified system, you will learn how to think and learn more powerfully in just three days. To prove how good you will be with this process, you learn Spanish as a side benefit.

The learning system you gain expands on Dr. Lozanov’s original work and offers new insights into tapping human potential, drawing from ancient and modern tactics for quick learning such as subliminal memory, music, nutrition, and productivity.

There are three scientific reasons why this course will change your learning capacity forever (and help you speak Spanish in just four days).

This system uses music to integrate brain waves so the process of absorbing, processing and recalling information is vastly accelerated.  This brings forth the three C’s:  Calm, Clarity and Coherence.

Super Spanish in Canada

Shawn and Suzanne Bandick teach Super Spanish in Mexico and Canada.

Here is one more rave from Shawn and Suzanne’s Mexico course.
super spanish course images

The Super Thinking system works by focusing on the learner first… the data second.  The system “grows the learner” rather than just expands the information.  The explosion of data we must all process everyday means there is too much information to process already.    Let’s view this learning in terms of plumbing to outline what “Growing the Learner”  means.

If you have 4.5 inches of information flowing through a 4 inch learning pipe, the solution is not to add another inch of information.  The answer is to first create a six inch pipe and then an even larger pipe…a never ending expansion of abilities!

You learn how to evoke the power of the senses thus super-charging memory. Ever hear a song from twenty, thirty or forty years past and in a snap know all the words, the tune and remember with who and where your heard it decades ago? Learn how to use ten cycle music to gain almost super human thinking powers.

Dr. Lozanov was totally committed to learning without stress, to enjoy the thrill of relaxed, leisurely learning. These are just two, whole learning, super-thinking tactics you gain at this course.

What is your desire? Do you want to speak Spanish, French, German, Chinese or any language? Would you like to golf better or accomplish more in school? Would you like to easily, quickly zip through projects, chores, reports? Merri’s “Super Thinking” course can help you learn any subject two-to-five times faster, in exciting and innovative ways.

The techniques you gain will help unlock the quantum potential we all possess. This evolutionary program shows how certain types of music can enhance learning and how even altered nutrition can make you a startling 25 percent smarter, how subliminal messages can increase your energy and thinking process, plus much, much more.

Merri’s system follows and builds upon what was taught in the Superlearning, the Mozart Effect and Superlearning 2000 books plus includes techniques and strategies that she has gained in her 42 years of global travel and study with educational masters around the world.

This is a course that shows you how to increase your mental power to better succeed in the 21st century when we can otherwise be overwhelmed by information.

The system you gain is built from old and new sources ranging from yoga to contemporary Russian science, and ultimate zone training already used by many Olympic champions.

“Super Thinking plus Spanish” presents new ways to use music to supercharge your mind. The knowledge you gain about smart food and super nutrition allows you to enhance productivity and creativity.

The tactics you gain enhance your ability to absorb… retain and recall information.

Once these concepts of enhancing your mental powers with music are understood, you will know how to create your own program and build new skills at work in study and play.

Second you gain seventeen, easy to use learning techniques that can help you gain any romantic language in much less time than traditional learning techniques.

Here is our 2014-2015, Super Thinking + Spanish schedule.

November 20-21-22, 2014  Thursday, Friday, Saturday Puerto Aventuras, Mexico. (Normally $699 or $899 for a couple)

November 24-25-26, 2014 Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday.  Super Thinking + Spanish course  Manta Ecuador . (Normally $699 or $899 for a couple)

January  16-17-18,  2015,  Friday, Saturday, Sunday.   Super.  Thinking + Spanish,  Mt. Dora, Florida (Normally $699 or $899 for a couple)

January 22-23-24, 2015, Thursday, Friday, Saturday Puerto Aventuras, Mexico. (Normally $699 or $899 for a couple)

February 26-27, 28 2015, Thursday, Friday, Saturday Puerto Aventuras, Mexico. (Normally $699 or $899 for a couple)

Fluency in a language is considered to come when you know 1,200 words. To prove that it is possible to gain this and much more, let me share just one of the 17 tactics Merri taught me that gives you thousands of Spanish words in less than three minutes.

Here are the thousands of Spanish words lesson #1:

All words in Spanish and English that end in ION are almost identical,  just pronounced differently. For example action is accion, education educacion, manipulation, manipulacion, etc.

Now you already literally know hundreds of Spanish nouns. This is just one of seventeen Spanish lessons you gain. The next lesson teaches you how to pronounce each of these nouns. Then you learn in a third lesson almost as many verbs, almost as quickly.

Third, you learn how to avoid conjugating verbs by sticking with the infinitive (far easier than it sounds). This simple lesson leaves you sounding like a Spanish professor (believe me I know as I use this tactic every day when in Ecuador).

There are many other lessons. For example lesson five shows how to sound infinitely polite and yet get almost anything you want in Spanish. Lesson six gives you the valuable connectors and the seventh lesson triples your Spanish capacity with yesterday, now and tomorrow.

By the end of the three day course you will feel quite comfortable speaking Spanish without stress!

A delegate who learned Super Spanish outlined how this course can help you.   After three days, I can speak Spanish in complete sentences. In simple conversations, such as buying groceries or ordering a meal, I can make myself understood. I think that’s incredible!  Although I am far from the competence level of a native speaker, I feel I’ve taken a giant step forward in learning Spanish so that I can experience the people and culture of Ecuador.  The foregoing benefits would have more than justified the time and money I invested in Super Thinking Super Spanish. And learning Spanish was not the most important benefit I got from the course.  In recent years, I’ve rarely relaxed (No wonder I have had high blood pressure!) .   In class, the past three days, I’ve been introduced to the calming effects of Baroque music.  What a blessing! I’m inclined to make this a daily part of my life.   Rob Christi

The Super Spanish helps you start speaking and understanding Spanish right away.  This can help you speak Spanish faster and make your traditional Spanish course easier and more effective. 

A Livescience.com article helps explain why this course works and how delegates are creating Spanish sentences by the first lunch break and can communicate well in Spanish after just three days.   This article by Jeremy Hsu, LiveScience Senior Writer, is entitled “CIA Seeks Anyone, Anyone Who Can Speak 2 Languages”

Four important points in the article are shown in excerpts below with my comments to show what has been wrong with traditional Spanish courses and why the Super Thinking tactic is perfect for this program.

The article says: WASHINGTON, D.C. — Many Americans don’t learn a second or a third language from birth, let alone a language that the CIA or U.S. Foreign Service might want. The situation has forced U.S. government agencies to learn how to cultivate the most talented second-language speakers from among college students with little to no other-language expertise.

“In U.S. education, we don’t develop early bilinguals,” said Catherine Doughty, a language expert at the University of Maryland.

Doughty spoke as part of a panel on Feb. 19 during the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) conference in Washington, D.C. Finding the best.  Government agencies aren’t alone in trying to recruit multilingual speakers; U.S. corporations covet such skills for doing business in the era of globalization.

The article explained how Doughty and her colleagues used tests to train up cognitive processes related to language learning, such as the ability to hold information in the brain while using it for learning.  The tests sought to predict those who can succeed despite everything stacked against them.

The article reviewed changes in the brain.  Lee Osterhout is a cognitive neuroscientist at the University of Washington in Seattle.  His lab used electrodes placed on the scalp to measure the electrical activity created by the signals of brain cells. That allowed the researchers to see differences in the brain patterns among language learners and fluent speakers. They found some surprising results.

The article pointed out: Repeated studies of French language students showed that their brains responded differently to real French words compared with fake words after just two weeks of classes, even if the students themselves could not tell such words apart.   

“From knowing nothing to a little bit, [there are] huge changes in the brain,” Osterhout pointed out.”[From] knowing a little to knowing a lot, [it is] much more subtle.”  Another surprise came from studies of Spanish-speaking immigrants, because neither age nor language proficiency seemed to predict how quickly the immigrants picked up English. Instead, the fastest learners showed both the greatest motivation to learn and a willingness to use English at every opportunity despite being bad at it (at first).

MY COMMENT: This is the other reason why Super Thinking plus Spanish works. This three day course gets the delegates speaking and thinking Spanish all the time so they can use and/or think Spanish every day… and communicating even from the beginning. In this way the education grows even when Spanish is not being spoken.

The Super Thinking course first integrates the brain.  Students learn better with relaxed concentration. Then the course teaches them 17 simple lessons so they know 4005 words in Spanish and can use them to create sentences. In this way, you can communicate in just three days.

Travel, accommodations and food are not included.

Gary

Yet your Spanish will just be one result from learning how to think better!  You will be able to use your new learning powers in amazing ways.

Here are what delegates wrote about a Super Thinking + Spanish seminar. 

“Hi Gary & Merri, You two are the BEST!!! Your Seminar was fantastic! I am so excited. I had procrastinated fulfilling my continuing education for my Broker’s License and then just before my surgeries, I realized by expiration date isn’t Nov. 12th – it is Sept 12th. Well, as you can see prior to taking your course I had only completed 3 units of the required 45 units. I thought I would take your course and then complete my remaining 42 units over the next 2 weeks. However, I took one class exam on Saturday night, August 27th. I didn’t even take the cellophane off the required Course manuals until after I saw the two of you today less than 5 hours ago! I used your techniques and completed 39 units of continuing education today. I have now completed all 45 units. All of my test scores were in the 90.6-96% range. My course exam information is listed below. I just wanted to let you know how valuable your course was to me. Thanks again!” Suzy Kurinsky

Another wrote:  Thanks for the Spanish course.  This technique is truly a breakthrough in learning.  I believe I learned more Spanish in four days than I learned in four weeks in a previously attended Costa Rica language school.  The Costa Rica school taught a very limited number of memorized words and phrases. Ted.

Another delegate at a Super thinking plus Spanish seminar wrote:  The Super Thinking approach exposed us to a broad variety of works and the technique needed to expand the language.  Again, Thanks for the experience.

One attendee wrote: I just wanted to say thank you so much for everything during the seminar. You guys are indeed a shining example of having a business that truly serves others. And thanks for the extra time spent and good things taught to me personally. I have begun to implement them already and will continue to apply them. And you might be interested that waiting for my flight home I ended up sitting next to a woman from Quito and could understand some of what she said in a cell phone conversation. We talked a little and she said that I should visit Ecuador!  Thank you again for your real graciousness and acceptance! I will also write to Merri and thank her as well. And I wish that I could do something for you two!

Another wrote: Thank you!  We  always look forward to spending time and learning about so many fascinating things. Like Minded people and Vivaldi! What could be better?

Another sent this note: Thank you for the wonderful workshop on Super Learning + Spanish!  I really enjoyed the workshop.

Since I returned home, I have purchased some of the CDs of Baroque music and thought about which specific pieces will work best in different parts of my classes.  I am also reading Perfect Health by Deepak Chopra.  I found your discussion of this book to be very helpful in showing how to balance one’s life.  I have adjusted my daily schedule, and I can already notice a difference in my productivity.

Thank you for sending the file of the 4005 Spanish words.  This will be very helpful in my daily review of Spanish.

Another emailed this: Every day I’m becoming more proficient in Spanish.  As I get ready to do something, I think about how I would say it in Spanish.  Thank you again for a Super Workshop!  With love and blessings,

Another: It certainly was an interesting and intriguing four days for me.  I enjoyed the Spanish but even more so, all the tentacles that extended during those four days that went into so many different directions.

I grew up in a very SQUARE box with loving  and intelligent parents but my world remained within this box, unable to see beyond those walls, as I was never encouraged to “think outside the box”..  Mike has been opening doors and leading me outside this box but because of my upbringing I have not completely embraced or understood what was beyond those doors he opened for me.  As I have gotten older I have become more open to the world outside those doors yet those old tapes continue to play and I have not been able to completely release myself and experience all that can be.

Another shared this: Listening to the two of you during our time together has suddenly got me to thinking, and although some of the ideas still seem foreign to me,  I am at a point in my life now where I can say, “anything is possible” and I am now willing to embrace and allow myself to experience the world of possibility and let it take me in directions I may have in the past resisted.  I really don’t know where all this is going to lead me but I am now willing to explore, develop and grow.

I found all the information you offered on healing, realigning the body, nutrition, etc. so fascinating, have you ever thought about doing a course on just that?  With the aging population and the health care issues I think it would be not only an interesting course but one that would be very beneficial to so many.  I, personally, would love to learn more about what you talked about and plan on purchasing the book, “Body Renewal, the Lost Art of Self Healing” for my Kindle.

Thank you again for a wonderful four days!!

Another:  We had fun at Disney World on Monday and sat beside several Personnes Espaniol.  We could understand them however I couldn’t make sentences quickly, but could say one or two word phrases that were understood.  We arrived home at 3am yesterday – the airlines were very late in Denver due to a crew incident.

I found myself making up sentences all day yesterday as I was running errands.  John knows more vocabulary than I at this point as he has studied Spanish previously.  Today I will begin to review the lessons and construct sentences to send to you and the group – as you suggested below.  Es en BUENO sugestion!!!  I also received the email Merri sent with the 4005 words and started to scroll through those yesterday.

Another: Thank YOU for everything you have done to create and bring this wonderful experience to all of us.  It takes a well sychronized team of people to put on an effective, change producing seminar!  I have given many seminars and enjoyed the experience immensely.  The outcome is even better!  Estoy une infantil de Super Thinking and Spanish, y es possible aprender en tiempo.

John and I both thank all of you for the wonderful experience – we are working now to clear up things so we can leave for the Galapagos and Ecuador November 25th – December 20th.  Nosotros tiene muchos appreciacion!  Gracias y Abrazos,

Another:
  Muchas gracias para la informacion!  I had a wonderful time at the Super Learning + Spanish weekend!… excelente!

I was impressed with your depth of knowledge on numerous subjects and your ability to speak about them with exceptional recall.  Con mucho apriciar,  P.S. Yo estoy enteresado en Espanol #2.

One delegate even explained how after our course they ended up as the accidental translator: Gary,  I have sent a couple of messages, and  a story of Mike being able to translate yesterday for a Spanish person  who couldn’t understand what a man was trying to tell him!

We loved the seminar, and are excited to put the super learning to practice, and especially the great company of like-minded people (especially G & M!)  Muchas Gracias!  Tiene an excellante dias.

One delegate communicated entirely in Spanish…. after just our Super Thinking + Spanish seminar: Buenas dias nuestra maestra perfectamente, Merri!   Muchas gracias por la lista espanol.

Claro, David y yo aprendemous mucho espanol el fine de semana pasada. Gary y usted nos hacen espanol muy facil aprender. Es importante continuar a practicar espanol cada dia. Gracias tambien!  Buenas suerte…hasta la vista! Con mucho amor,

Comments from another delegate: I wanted you to know that the Spanish course has proven incredibly helpful. Dealing with internet service providers and shopping for appliances, etc., normally would have required me hiring a translator to follow me around. While it may not be pretty or 100% grammatically correct, I am understood. Thank you!  Saludos!

Whether your goal is to reduce your cost of living… increase your income… enhance the return on your investments or all, being able to speak Spanish… enhances your opportunity and does the world good.

Lose Weight and Inches With Frequency Modulation

See an example from a Super Thinking + Spanish delegate who lost 55 pounds after taking our course.   See how Jim Reed used our Super Thinking + Spanish course to enhance his health and wealth as well as speak Spanish.

The ability to speak Spanish… even if you never leave the US is valuable in this day and age.   Spanish opens access to a good labor force and helps you communicate with a useful part of the American population.

Beyond Spanish… knowledge is bliss. Ignorance is dangerous in these times of rapid change.  The more knowledge we can absorb, retain and recall… the better our chances of success… higher income… less stress…. better health and more fulfillment.

So it’s little wonder that the attendance at our Super Thinking + Spanish and Quantum Wealth courses have grown dramatically.   Our changing world not only reinforces the need to speak Spanish but also requires us to be smarter.

One fact that many who enjoyed wonderful positive changes when they have attended our Super Thinking course is they learned to use music in a very specific way to reach the quantum states of their intellect.

Here are more raves from delegates of this course:

I have so enjoyed attending your seminars.  I look at is as a place to gain  “tools for life” as well as  receiving a plethera of information on the topics at hand.

(So far we attended  Spanish and investing.) I get equally as much value out of the tools, and mindset in viewing the information that can be applied to life in general as well as the topic at hand. So thanks for enjoying what you do… it definitely shows up in real world application.

At each seminar we meet many interesting and unique folk – I think the audience you draw  can think out of the box at least a little bit! So again thanks for gathering such a wonderful array of resources for us.

Another emailed:  We so enjoyed the language class last weekend!

Carolyn came back with your simple, common sense approach and the new tools to start speaking.

Most remarkable is that she feels comfortable putting together sentences and ‘communicating.’ Somehow many of us seem to get caught in the trap of thinking we have to say it ‘right,’ and so we don’t even try. It is interesting that we do not see ourselves ‘creating’ communication in our native tongue; each saying it a little different than the other, and yet still all getting the ‘communication’ across the bridge in our own manner.

We delighted to know you both better, and greatly admire your passion for life and generosity sharing what you have learned.

We are planning to attend the next business seminar you offer. Carolyn is talking about returning for the Fall Spanish Super Thinking class with a girlfriend.

We are excited by the many new challenges we have found through your offerings.

Another a dentist said: I was so delighted with my experience at the Spanish training.  I felt more confident of ability to pronounce Spanish than I ever was of French or German.  Funny… I did not think I remembered any French or German but when I cannot remember the Spanish words the German and French popped up.  Practicing my pronunciation made my trip home go faster. I never enjoyed pronouncing either of the other two, but this was fun. It is hard to fall asleep at the wheel when you are moving your mouth to speak Spanish. It does work your mouth in a different way.  I realized that you have to say each syllable slowly and correctly(until you get it perfectly) and when you do it is impressive.

It was amazing to see us all writing such advanced sentences after a few days and so much more enjoyable than having to go through the alphabet to build the words to build the sentences.

Another Wrote: I intended to give it a few days before I wrote to you about my experience in the Spanish + SuperThinking  Course. However, I had such dramatic results today, in the physical rather than the cognitive realm, that I had to share this immediately.

I started my day with Baroque music. Before I began my Spanish lesson, I went through the Mayan Waves Brain Refresher (Brain Sync). I also played an alpha wave composition while I completed a lesson in the morning. I repeated the process this afternoon. Before my high intensity interval training (HIIT) workout in the evening, I put on a gamma brain wave video from you tube faster reading gamma waves help with exercise. I preformed the “Halo Of Sweat” workout from an online fitness site. Around the world, people complete the workout and posts their scores, striving to meet or beat the personal trainer. Frankly, my reps have rarely come close to the reps of the woman featured in the video nor have I ever beat her. Until today.

Not only did I come close to her performance, I surpassed her quite significantly with several exercises. I performed my best in the last exercise, Abs Burn Out. Her scores were 38, 34 and 33 and mine were 60, 40 and 47!

I believe several factors allowed me to achieve this acceleration in athletic ability today:

1. My left and right hemispheres are now harmonizing.
2. The meditation and relaxed concentration techniques I learned are coming more easily to me and effective.
3. My focus and concentration are greatly enhanced.

I am a Pilates professional so to have my exercise regimen improve so swiftly is remarkable. Not only am I now able speak Spanish but I am experiencing optimal health as well. I am deeply grateful to you and Merri for your SuperLearning instruction.  Be well,

Here is our 2014-2015 Super Thinking + Spanish schedule.

Combine Ecuador Holiday Shopping & Business


Here is a way to combine Ecuador holiday shopping with the business of earning extra income.

A delegate from a previous Ecuador export tour just sent Bonnie Keough (who conducts the tours) this note:  Dear Bonnie, My Dad sold 32 Alpaca ponchos  at a 4 day show.The margins are a bit tight but I would deem this a roaring success.I appreciate your help in explaining markups and marketing these products.

Many delegates on the Ecuador export tour pay for the cost of travel and the tour just with their holiday shopping savings… plus find some really interesting gifts beyond the Chinese plastic stuff that floods the USA this time of year.

On the tour you get to see an incredible variety of products and meet the…

Ecuador exports also offer a fun way to earn extra income.  The Ecuador export tour conductor, Bonnie Keough,  just sent me this note:  Hi Gary,  I have three of my former students in Ecuador right now on a buying trip, they needed to restock for holiday sales; and I heard from two others who did the same thing last month.   Hugs, Bonnie

The No Hassle, Have Fun Holiday Ecuador Shopping Tour

ecuador-christmas-tour

Other ways of making/saving…Jean Marie Butterlin and Bonnie Keogh have teamed up to help you save on Ecuador shopping… and learn where the bargains are.

Bonnie Keough explains when she writes: This year we are combining our November/December Ecuador Export tour with Christmas shopping.  Yes, I know fun is not the word that usually comes to my mind when we think about Christmas shopping or getting into business.  Now we combine the two.  Let’s make it fun.  This year why not learn how to create an Ecuador export business and do your holiday shopping in Ecuador?

“I’ve been traveling around Ecuador for many years; both on my own and leading groups.  I’ve discovered unique handcrafted items, many one of a kind.  During my travels, I’ve met many wonderful artists and business owners who are anxious to tell me about their products.

“Many are family businesses, skills have been passed from one generation to the next.   Customers are appreciated.  Prices are flat out bargains.  Isn’t this a better atmosphere to shop than the usual crowded, noisy mall with limited selection, expensive prices and merchandise that all looks the same and is poor quality.

“You could go to a department store and buy Grandma a lap blanket to keep her cozy.    It’s a thoughtful gift. It would probably be made in China.

“But in Ecuador, you’ll see hand made…

ecuador-christmas-tour

jewelry of…

ecuador-christmas-tour

every sort.

ecuador-christmas-tour

“Or, you could buy her an alpaca lap blanket with hand crocheted edging and fringe, you’ll have your choice of dozens of vibrant colors.

“You can’t believe how soft alpaca wool is until you feel it.  It’s also lightweight and oh so warm.  And have someone snap a photo of you at the market making your purchase, Grandma will love hearing about your trip and shopping adventures.  All of your gifts will be extra special and unique, only you will know what wonderful bargains they were.

“In fact, you can probably save enough money on your gifts to pay for your trip.

“The art is varied, plus really…

ecuador-christmas-tour

in expensive and…

ecuador-christmas-tour

you get to meet the artists.

ecuador-christmas-tour

“We will visit some of my favorite shops in addition to markets so you’ll be able to find something for everyone on your list.    And I might even throw in a home workshop or two from my Import/Export tour! There are so many opportunities.  We will be busy, but it will be fun.

“No hassles, no stress, no crowds.  No driving on slippery roads or laps around full parking lots looking for an empty spot. Wouldn’t it be nice to relax and enjoy the holidays this year, knowing you are prepared with great gifts for everyone?  And won’t you feel good about buying directly from folks who need and appreciate your business?

“This is one time when you can definitely mix business with pleasure.  The tour will start in Quito and end in Cotacachi, staying in Land of the Sun Inn.  (Your room and meals are not included in the tour.)  Rates are $59+ taxes and include a full served breakfast.  We will provide transportation back to Quito or you may choose to stay longer in Cotacachi.

“Do you know someone who collects chickens or roosters?  I bet they don’t have one from Ecuador in their collection.

“These girls are sisters, they live near Otavalo.  Earning money is a family effort in Ecuador, one generation learns from another. The sisters sell scarves and dolls to our tour groups and sing songs in Quichua, their indigenous language.

“Wouldn’t you rather buy from her than a big, box store?

“A new leather belt is a great gift, for a guy or a gal.  Most of the belts made in this family workshop are under $10!  Great quality too.

“Let us do the driving and planning, you enjoy the scenery, people and bargains.  It’s a no hassle, have fun tour!

Here is a rave about the Ecuador Export Tour.

One delegate wrote: Bonnie, I wanted to thank you so much for the tour! Paul and I had such an awesome time. It was so worth it. From having someone pick us up at the airport to the beautiful charming hotel. We met so many fun and interesting people. I loved Ecuador and the wonderful places that we visited. You were wonderful! I really believe if you are going to visit Ecuador this is the way to do it. I also got all of my Christmas shopping done at less than half of what I spent last year! I will be back! Cheers to you!

Hemingway’s Secret to Better Writing Saves You Up to $899

Our Writer’s Camps specialize in how to write to sell through self publishing.  This course goes way beyond logic and looks at how to think, write, earn with greater wisdom.

We help you learn ways to go the extra mile.

Was Ernest Hemingway’s secret to better writing in English or Spanish?  

hemingway

‪Hemingway with Friends at La Florida (“Floridita”), Havana, Cuba.‬

To get a Nobel Prize in literature… you have to be willing to go the extra mile (1).   In Hemingway’s case perhaps he went further… 104.91 miles to be exact from Key West to Havana.   There may have been many reasons why Hemingway liked Cuba but he already had access to them in Key West.  Why go the extra 104.91 miles to Cuba?

Hemmingway speaking spanish

See Ernest Hemingway speaking Spanish below.

Perhaps Ernest Hemingway knew that speaking a second language makes you smarter.  Perhaps he realized that he could think and write better in English when one learns Spanish.   In 1939 he moved to Cuba and wrote “For Whom the Bell Tolls” which  became a Book-of-the-Month Club choice.  The book sold half a million copies almost instantly, was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize, and cemented Hemingway’s reputation as one of the great writers in the English language… at a time when he was speaking two languages.

You too can be be smarter, write better and incidentally… and save up to $899 in the process.

You might ask… “What the heck does Spanish have to do with writing and self publishing?”

Well… to start, being smarter means you write better and the fact is, you do gain greater intellect with Super Thinking.   Super Thinking tactics integrate brain waves so absorption, retention and recollection of  information improve… a lot.   Most important of all, Super Thinking helps you synthesize what you learn so you can connect dots and use the knowledge you gain to achieve your goals.

In short, Super Thinking makes you smarter.. a lot!

Super Thinking is not a gimmick nor a trick.At least three best selling books, Superlearning, the Mozart Effect and Superlearning 2000 have revealed insights about how we can learn and think more powerfully based on systems drawn from the Bulgarian master, Dr. Georgi Lozanov.  Merri was among those few who learned how and is licensed to teach the Lozanov system.  She has organized a practical course on how to learn faster and better.  With her modified system, you discover how to think more powerfully in just three days…and experience the wonders of superlearning.

When I figured this out, my first thought was… “Why not help readers learn writing  AND Spanish?”  There and then was a two for one deal.

Enroll for our Writer’s Camp and you gain a full scholarship to one of our Super Thinking + Spanish course or vice versa.  You save $699 (single) to $899 (couple).

Still you ask… “Why Spanish for writing and self publishing?”

Spanish is the second most spoken romantic language.  Chances are a huge Spanish speaking population lives near you.  Speaking Spanish can be helpful in innumerable ways just from this fact.

There is more.  Learning a second language makes you smarter and healthier.

Image from Telegraph article “Why learn a foreign language? Benefits of bilingualism”. (2)

The Telegraph article (linked below) entitled “Why learn a foreign language? Benefits of bilingualism says (bolds are mine):  Learning a foreign language is more than just a boost to your CV or handy for travelling. It will make you smarter, more decisive and even better at English, says Anne Merritt.

Physiological studies have found that speaking two or more languages is a great asset to the cognitive process. The brains of bilingual people operate differently than single language speakers, and these differences offer several mental benefits.

You can read the entire article at the link below but to sum it up it shows seven ways that learning a second language improves your intellect and health:

* You build multitasking skills

* You stave off Alzheimer’s and dementia

* Your memory improves

* You become more perceptive

* You become smarter

* Your decision-making skills improve

* You improve your English

A better command of English… used by a smarter, more perceptive person who can remember details and multi task, creates a better writer.

With this. I rest Hemingway’s case.

Learn the power of Super Thinking.  Gain the seven benefits of being bilingual.  Attend our Super Thinking + Spanish course and Writer’s Camp. Save up to $899.

We have Writer’s Camps and Spanish courses scheduled for the year ahead. Enroll within the next two weeks for any one of the Writer’s Camps and you gain a full scholarship to the Spanish course of your choice.  You save $699 (single) to $899 (couple).

New Ecuador Opportunities


Here are three new Ecuador opportunities.

The first is environmental as shown in this excerpt from an article:

Ecuadoran President Confirms Deal to Leave Oil Under Yasuni Park

QUITO, Ecuador, April 26, 2010 (ENS) – President Raphael Correa now has approved an agreement to leave Ecuador’s largest oil reserves, amounting to some 900 million barrels, underground in Yasuni National Park in exchange for more than $3 billion.

Under the unprecedented agreement, known as the Yasuni-ITT Initiative, the government of Ecuador will refrain from exploiting the Ishpingo-Tambococha-Tiputini oil field within the Amazon rainforest park, which scientists have determined to be the most biodiverse area in all of South America.

The agreement between Ecuador and the United Nations Development Programme creating a trust fund to receive donations to the Yasuni-ITT Initiative was nearly signed in December at the UN climate summit in Copenhagen, but at the last minute, President Correa instructed his negotiators to hold back until several sticking points were resolved.

See a link to the entire article below.

The second opportunity comes in the form of a new shop in Cotacachi named Wakya. See Wakya here.

The third opportunity is beginning this September.

As of August 1st, Jean Marie Butterlin (whom we have been working with for some years) has acquired our Ecuador tour business.

Jean Marie Butterlin, was born in France and after graduating in 1977 from the engineering college ICAM in Lille (France) moved to United States where he developed a homeopathic and dietary supplement business in Houston TX, with an aim at exporting the US made products  into Europe, with emphasis towards Belgium and France.

Jean Marie Butterlin.

After living part time on both sides of the Atlantic he moved back  in 2002 to Europe where he has a prosperous business in the natural health field i.e. phytotherapy, mineral supplements, specialty cosmetics, as well as Quantum medical technology, internet publishing for the anti-aging market.

This quest for anti-aging remedies, products and techniques has lead him to discover Ecuador with its valleys of longevity, where he is researching and developing new approaches to live longer and better and bringing the new products and techniques to more and more people in the United States and Europe.

Jean Marie moved with his family to Cotacachi last year.

International club members will still attend all 2010 tours free.
