Wisdom in the Secret Valley

by | May 22, 2012 | Archives

There are valleys of longevity in Ecuador actually secret valleys where great natural wisdom remains.

The roots of our Super Thinking plus Spanish course were exposed long ago when we entered a supposedly haunted valley looking for something richer than gold.

Incan gold.

Incan Gold is said to be hidden in the sacred LLanganatis valley… but this is not why we went there.   We had a more important mission.

The science section of National Geographic article entitled “Lost Inca Gold—Ransom, Riches, and Riddles” (linked below) by By James Owen says:  Steeped in death, conquest, desire, and mystery, the legend of the lost Inca gold is guarded by remote, mist-veiled mountains in central Ecuador. Somewhere deep inside the unforgiving Llanganates mountain range between the Andes and the Amazon is said to exist a fabulous Inca hoard hidden from Spanish conquistadors.

This photograph by Bates Littlehales is in the article and its caption says:  A gold cup such as this may lie among the thousands of priceless items thought to make up the mythical lost Inca gold. This fabled treasure, part of an exorbitant ransom for the imprisoned Inca leader Atahualpa, was supposedly hidden in the 16th century when the Inca learned Atahualpa had already been put to death by Spanish conquistador Francisco Pizarro.

Here we were about to enter the valley and we did not even know this legend.  I think that was good so let’s go to the beginning.

A bite of chilled wind swept the broad Andean marsh where diamond sunrays sparkled and danced on a frying pan lake below. Damp odors of ooze, mud and grass were mixed in harmony to the taste of my blood, my senses concocting strange mixtures in the altitude-thinned air. High on a mountain slope overlooking the LLanganatis Valley, the sun filled the Amazonian Valley below. Who was to know that the discovery of one of South America’s most ancient secrets for vitality and good health lay just ahead?

Breathing heavily in the 14,000 feet rarified air, we rethought how this trip has evolved. My wife, Merri, and I, along with two medical doctors who specialized in anti aging and friends, walked toward a sacred valley where western man had never been invited before.

Years earlier while working in the Andes and Amazon, we had met healers who were from lineages of many healers that received such intensive training they became Taita Yachaks, (Father of Fathers or healers of great purity).

These wise ancients realized that never ending blending was the nature of reality, good for society, production and health. So the story below about a 500 year old prophesy should not be a surprise.

Heart and Soul
Mind and Body
Diet and Exercise
Service and Savings
East and West
North and South
Earth and Sun

Combine any of these and you have a whole that’s worth more than the sum of its parts.

We became involved in creating a foundation to help the people of Ecuador and because of this the Taita Yatchaks asked us to help them fulfill a task to bring secrets from the South to the North and bring important knowledge from the North to the South. The yatchaks told us there was a 500 year old prophesy that states when the Eagle of the North and the Condor of the South flew in the skies together, a greater equilibrium would exist for mankind. They asked if we could help fulfill this prophesy.  All the years later, we do find that the prophesy has been fulfilled.

To be part of a prophesy unveiled five hundred years ago is humbling at the least. Scary is probably a better word. Yet we felt compelled to accept and so with several friends, we started helping these healers meet people from the North, not knowing the best was yet to come.

The Yatchaks explained there was an unoccupied valley where no westerner or outsider had ever been invited. The Yatchaks were protectors and kept it carefully guarded. But part of their prophesy was when the time was right they would take a westerner to open secrets from this valley to the rest of the world. We were told that our efforts to help them were signals that we should go into the valley.

We had no idea then how special this valley was. Only later did we learn that 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. This valley was also said to contain a hidden treasure of the assassinated Incan emperor, Atahaulpa. The Spanish had tried to find this valley but the natives would not reveal its location. Hundreds accepted enslavement, torture and even death, rather than disclose its secrets.

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 several friends including Jay Glaser and his wife Danielle and another medical doctor who also was studying longevity. This was a good thing because our arrival was with a sense of foreboding. We felt almost frightened rather than thrilled.

Several villages held a special meeting of the protectors to perform a rite of permission. Only then did we discover that even native Ecuadorians had never been allowed to know the location of this valley. Only the healers and spiritual leaders of the Andes went there.

The other M.D. researching longevity traveled with us but rather than visit the valley visited another valley where there are healing thermal pools. While there he told the owner of the hotel where we were going and was told we would never be seen again alive! The owner told our friend he had once tried sneaking into the valley, had been caught, stripped naked, hogtied and dumped on a lonely road. The man’s effects had all been dumped in a bundle at the hotel with a note saying where to find him with a warning not to return to the valley. Merri, Danielle, Jay and I 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 six llamas that carried our food, two young boys to herd the llamas, a cook, the Taita Yatchak and his son and daughter.

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 a spring that formed part of 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 more than I can describe, by the high altitude, bone weary from our heavy packs, every muscle aching from fighting all day, in the altitude thinned air, 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 about longevity and health. We were continually cold, wet, dirty and cramped-all 12 of us in this tiny hut with its earthen floor.

None of us had ever had so much fun!  There is something about the valley that one cannot explain, an abounding energy and peacefulness. 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.

Here we are with the Taita Yatchak in sacred valley.

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

This feeling of well-being was physical as well as emotional. We found that though our stay had been short we lost weight, increased muscle mass and were stronger, more balanced and our bodies felt better in almost every way.

Because of this trip and the remarkable 500-year-old prophecy we knew there were secrets that could help us live longer and feel more vital.

Diet, exercise, living in the right climate at the right altitude are all important. Yet there is more and this is one of the things to discuss on this web site. We seek and share natural health secrets with you.

A  delegate at one of the export tours we promote blended this sacred philosophy with business. He shared the prophesy with an Ecuadorian artist (Nativo) and asked him to create a work of art that reflects this ideal.

The result is a work of art that sits in our home.

Our mission to help Westerners integrate the heart and the mind have taken on a Western quality… usefulness.  Most of us… especially in these times of  economic globalization and technological change do not have time to do much of anything that is not useful so we applied what we learned during our time living in Asia and the Andes… plus our study of wisdom from Indian, Tibet and Bulgaria to create our Super Thinking program based on integrating brain waves… the left and right brain… the intuition and logic so we can tap the infinite wisdom that we are.

Super Thinking + Spanish is the first program we developed from this knowledge and is described below and we hope to help share with you the wisdom from this secret valley.

Learn Spanish in Three Days

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.  

The ONLINE course has our, full satisfaction or money back, guarantee.  Try Super Spanish for 60 days.  If not fully satisfied, simply let us know for a full refund.

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
