LLanganatis Journey Begins


LLanganatis Journey Begins.

llanganatis

We arrived on the perimeter of the Llanganatis early one morning in a chartered bus.

A journey in Ecuador’s LLangantis valley  was the last thing that Merri and I expected when we first visited Ecuador.

Getting ready to hike into the Llanganatis starting at 11,000 feet.

We have been investment newsletter writers and publishers for nearly thirty years who specialized in the international aspect of investing so I continually look for new places to invest.

A totally new adventure in Ecuador began when I spotted business and investing opportunities in Ecuador. Ecuador is a tiny South American country but has one of the most incredible diversities in the world. Because this country sits on the equator but is mountainous, it has the same bio-diversity as all the territory ranging from Ecuador to the Arctic Circle. Ecuador is the closest source of 365 days a year direct sunlight to the U.S. so offers some unique touristic, agricultural and environmental assets.

The country is a tourist delight offering sights, sounds and goods at prices so low it is hard to believe.  As an emerging economy, the place is ripe with business potential.

Everyone in Ecuador wants things from America and from Europe.When, from my research, I learned all these facts in 1995, we immediately started taking groups there for seminars on real estate, business and investing in Ecuador and South America.

I figured would help my readers make a small fortune and also help the country. I could never even begin to imagine the benefits I would gain beyond this!

Our Ecuadorian journeys would change our entire way of life and included the trip into the LLanganatis .

After several journeys to Ecuador, we learned that great spiritual leaders of the native indigenous people (who compose over 65% of Ecuador’s population) lived in the Andes. We heard so many wonderful things about these philosophers and healers that we felt compelled to take a special trip into the Andes to meet them.

A couple of months later we flew with 14 of our friends to Quito and then bused to a village in the mountains to a village near several of theses great people. There we learned about Taita Yatchaks (father of fathers) and their apprentices who begin their educational processes at very early ages.  They often travel to many countries, Bolivia, Peru, Colombia, Mexico, Central America and Venezuela to train with the greatest healers in each country. They are often third or fourth generation healers.

We also discovered that there was a special group of leaders called Abuelos (old ones) in the Andes that had been given a 500 year prophesy (handed down generation after generation) that a time would come when the Eagle of the North would fly together with the Condor of the South. When this happened a great new equilibrium would be given to mankind. This was a message of how to balance the heart and the mind.

In 1989 the Shamanic Council of South America decided the time for this prophesy to take place was near. This meant it was time for them to release secret knowledge to the western world which they have possessed for eons. They began looking for westerners who would accept the responsibility of bringing the Condor’s message to the industrialized world.

Because of work we had done in Ecuador to help the poor in this country, the Abuelos asked us to help them fulfill this task.

They gave Merri a Grandfather’s healing stone, one of a Taita Yatchak’s most prized possessions and gave me a special healing feather, gifts we were told were very sacred. We were pretty puzzled, amazed and honored to say the least. To be part of a prophesy which was unveiled five hundred years ago is awfully humbling!

Scary is probably a better word. Yet we felt compelled to accept.

When we started helping we did not know that the best was yet to come.

On our next trip we took a group of seminar delegates and booked a beautiful hacienda where we could all stay and meet with the “old ones” there.

After our financial sessions we met on the lawn under a huge willow tree by the river and listened to a Taita Yatchak tell us secrets about health, longevity, wealth, our past and our future. This was a man of wisdom and everyone was touched.

Then something special happened.

I had arranged for a special feather from North America to be presented to the Taita Yatchak as a token of appreciation for the feather that had been given to me. When it was presented to him, the look of wonder on his face was such I don’t think there was a dry eye in the crowd (and we had some tough, hard as nails business people with us).

The Taita Yatchak told us he was touched because this gift filled a prophesy which had been given to him years ago, one he believed would never happen.

He explained there was an unoccupied valley where only shamans had been allowed and no westerner or outsider had ever been. The old ones were protectors of this valley and kept it carefully guarded. But part of this prophesy was that when the time was right he would take a westerner to open this valley to the rest of the world. He said the feather we had brought was the signal that Merri and I should go into the valley.

I had no idea then how special this valley was.

Only later did we learn even in colonial times the Spanish had heard of this valley and believed it contained the fountain of youth. The valley is considered a spiritual center for the people in the Andes. They wanted to go to the valley but the natives would not reveal its location. Rather than disclose information on this valley, hundreds accepted enslavement, torture and even death.

This was to be the first time these protectors had ever taken an outsider into the valley. We did not know this when Merri and I arrived with six friends including two who are medical doctors studying longevity.

Our arrival was one almost of foreboding. I cannot explain why I felt this way rather than thrilled. Eleven villages held a special meeting of the protectors to perform a rite of permission. Only then did we discover that even the Ecuadorians themselves had never been allowed to know the location of this valley. Only the healers and spiritual leaders of the Andes went there.

One of the six friends, an M.D. who is also researching longevity, traveled with us but rather than visit the valley visited another valley where there are healing thermal pools. While there he was told by the owner of the hotel after hearing where we were headed that we would never be seen again alive! The owner told our friend he had once tried sneaking into the valley many decades ago, had been caught, stripped naked, hogtied and dumped on a lonely road. The man’s effects had all been dumped in a bundle at thehotel with a note saying where to find him and a warning not to return to the valley.

Thank Goodness we didn’t know this as we headed into the valley. We started our journey at 4:30 a.m. riding up into the mountains to a hiking point with the six llamas that would carry our food, two young boys to herd the llamas, an apprentice shaman, Taita Yatchak and his son and daughter.

View down into valley.  We had to climb back out!

We began hiking at about 10,500 feet, tramping through deep Alpine marsh for six hours as we ascended to 14,000 feet. Here we drank from the head waters of the Amazon Basin and then descended straight down (4,000′) a hidden mud animal trail for three hours into a virtually impenetrable cloud forest, ripped by thorns, cut by razor grass, soaked, and caked in mud.

By the time we arrived in the valley, it was just minutes before dark. We were fatigued by the high altitude, bone weary from our packs, every muscle aching from fighting all day with the sucking mud (which had regularly pulled off our boots).

We stayed in a floorless, leaky thatch hut, sleeping on dirt, no heat except the cooking fire, no running water, no nothing. The next morning, to our surprise we all felt wonderful! We explored the valley which is perpetually wrapped in mist and fog. We swam in small icy, deep blue lagoons and did ancient exercises while the Taita Yatchak talked with us. We were continually cold, wet, dirty and cramped-all 12 of us in this tinyhut with its earthen floor. You can see some pictures of our journey and the hut here.

I cannot describe how we felt except to say none of us had ever had so much fun. There is something about the valley I cannot yet explain.

Even at times when we were really worried about some of the party who had gone into shock from fatigue, there was never a moment of regret.

We discovered a magical quality to this Sacred Valley and after our return have found powerful emotional and physical evolutions happening to all six of us. Merri and I, along with the others, feel physically stronger, more alert, more positive, more active and yet more serene than ever before in our lives.

Why You Can Learn Spanish in Three Days

You can learn Spanish in a day, or a week, month or any time frame that works for you.

I’m Gary Scott.  Over fifty years ago I started a business that has helped hundreds of thousands of subscribers learn about investing in Hong Kong (1960s and 1970s), Switzerland, London, Isle of Man (1970s and 1980s) and across Europe. My wife Merri and I took thousands on investing tours to these countries.

In the 1990s we began taking investors to Panama, Mexico, the Dominican Republic and Ecuador.  That’s when we realized an incredible need for an easy, super fast way to learn Spanish.  Our delegates were business people with hard schedules and tight deadlines.  They did not have months, or even weeks to learn a second language.

Plus, even though these delegates were successful international business people, most did not have degrees in grammar.  When it came to sentence structure, punctuation rules, parts of speech, morphology and especially derivation of verbs, they were at a loss. They wanted good basic ways to communicate in Spanish that worked and sounded eloquent, right now, without having to become educated in grammar.

Fortunately there is a scientific method of learning (called Super Learning) that was created and refined by a Soviet educational master, Georgi Lozanov.   Lozanov transformed the entire Soviet Union’s educational system to such a degree that this third world nation beat the USA into space.

My wife Merri was lucky to be one of a handful of students outside the Soviet Union who were taught this system by Lozanov himself in the early 1970s.  She practiced this unique and remarkable form of education for decades so we used it to create a Super Spanish course that has helped thousands of subscribers learn Spanish in three days and less.

This course is now available online.

Does it sound impossible to learn Spanish in three days?  Yes, it is impossible when you try to learn Spanish in the old, traditional way, but the scientific Super Learning method of learning… proven and described in numerous best selling books creates educational jumps by making education natural, easy and fun.   This course works because it is education without stress!

How The Course Works

The first tactic is to use Baroque music to create Relaxed Concentration in the learning process.  At least three best selling books, “Superlearning”, the “Mozart Effect” and “Superlearning 2000” have revealed insights about how to learn and think more powerfully based on systems drawn from the Soviet educational master, Dr. Georgi Lozanov.

You gain six valuable ONLINE Baroque Relaxed Concentration Sessions in the online course that is delivered via the internet.

The second tactic uses 17 unique lessons to provide Spanish fluency in a short time.   Let me prove to you how this tactic works by teaching you hundreds of Spanish words in less than 30 seconds.

Here is the proof.

“Most words in English that end in ION are almost identical, just pronounced differently. 

For example action is accion.

Education-educacion.

Manipulation- manipulacion, etc.”

There you have it.  How long did it take you to read these four sentences? 

Ask yourself.  “How many words do you know that end in ION”.

You now know all these Spanish words that you will never forget.

How long would it have taken you to memorize all those words?  How soon would you have forgotten them?

The next lesson teaches how to pronounce each of the nouns.

The third lesson teaches almost as many verbs, almost as quickly.

The fourth lesson shows how to avoid conjugating verbs by sticking with the infinitive (far easier than it sounds).  This simple lesson leaves a person sounding like a Spanish professor without ever conjugating a verb.

Lesson five shows how to sound infinitely polite and yet get almost anything desired in Spanish.

Lesson six gives valuable connectors and the seventh lesson triples the Spanish capacity with three words for “yesterday,” “now” and “tomorrow”.

In an incredibly short time you feel comfortable speaking Spanish.

Plus the system is Impro-Dynamic.  This means your Spanish keeps getting better even though you do not seem to be studying… practicing… or speaking Spanish.

I was amazed by this as I traveled back and forth from the USA to Ecuador.  The longer I was away from Ecuador… the better my Spanish became.  My second language was automatically improving.  The self improving feature comes because you learn to create Spanish sentences rather than remember them.

The portion of the brain that creates is more powerful than the portion that recalls.  When your mind creates something… it owns it!  You do not have to remember .

During the course you learn 4005 Spanish words that you already know.   This eliminates the need to memorize 99% of Spanish words.

You then learn how to create Spanish sentences from these words.

Throughout the course you learn how to pronounce the sentences you create.

When the course ends… the mind keeps working… and creating… so next time you begin to speak Spanish you’ll be surprised .  You improve even though you have not actively worked on your lingual skill.

Due to the difficulty of getting groups together to learn this valuable technique, we created an online program for subscribers to use the Super Spanish course at home.   The normal three day in person course fee is $499 ($749 for a couple).

The ONLINE course is available at the highly reduced price of $149, but in this special offer we are knocking another $70 from the price so you can start now for only $79.

Here are some testimonials from the course.

Here are a few quotes from delegates of the course.

One delegate from St. Louis wrote:  Hi Gary,  Just ended forty-five years in dentistry last week, and I’m on to a new career.  What is my new career?  Still formulating, but the eye -opening,mind expanding Super-Spanish course last weekend in St. Louis surely shows me the opportunity exists to expand my horizons.

Besides having a lot of nice people to learn our new language; the methods Merri and you developed proved to be just what you said they would be.  We all and I in particular relaxed our way to new learning.  I feel so very comfortable with the basis of my new language skills that I know I will be spitting out great Spanish sentences by the time I reach Ecuador in October.  Last year I spent six weeks in Ecuador and now I plan on conversing with the people.

Today’s excerpt of your newsletter really hit home. You do what you say you will. There are no surprises or hidden sales tricks. The only tricks are beneficial to our learning.  Thank you for a wonderful experience that I was quite unable to grasp how you would pull it off.  You did, however, and I look forward to other courses that you offer, and I have absolutely no doubt they also will work beneficially.  Best regards, Denis Molloy.

Another wrote about the Super Spanish course:   Buenos Dias, here is a testimonial for Super Thinking-Super Spanish.  Please feel free to use all or part in promotions for the course.  In addition, you may give my email address to any prospect “on the fence” about enrolling.  Yesterday, in Cotacachi, Ecuador, I finished Super Spanish.  I had high expectations for the course and they were exceeded.

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 Spanish.  And learning some Spanish was not the most important benefit I got from the course.

Prior to leaving the USA, I had felt for some time that the pace of life there was unhealthy for me (and for most people) and I did nothing about it.

I’ve thought about the pace issue during the course.  One of the key elements Merri Scott designed into Super Spanish is placing the student in the optimal state for learning.  In class, the past three days, I’ve been re-introduced to guided journeys and introduced to the calming effects of Baroque music (www.sundaybaroque.org).  What a blessing! I’m inclined to make one or both a daily part of my life.   Rob Christi.  Cotacachi, Ecuador

Another attendee from a course wrote:   “I took this incredible class a few weeks ago, and I would like to tell anyone that is interested, that it is an amazing three days of learning with lots of laughs included. You leave everyday wanting to learn more and are so excited to do so.

“Other Spanish classes and tutoring made us feel like it would take forever to get to the point where we could put it into practice, but this method gave us a more fluent use for everyday life almost immediately AND the confidence to use it.  It is a fantastic way to show people how much they know and give confidence to learn and use Spanish creating a momentum.

“They made learning Spanish easy and fun in a very relaxed, comfortable atmosphere.  I would definitely recommend this course.  Even if you know some Spanish, this helps make it easier because of the less stress that no verb conjugations gives you.  This gives you more confidence in yourself to try and speak it more.

“I liked how simply the course was organized and the positive attitude about learning.  Thank you so much for helping me to learn Spanish!” Nadine Taylor
