We have also have had the opportunity to celebrate Thanksgiving in many countries, from Ecuador to England to Hong Kong. We especially enjoy this day because no one outside the US recognizes Thanksgiving Day in November as an official holiday. This gives us an opportunity to share a beautiful American tradition with other cultures.
Our family is so wide spread…five kids: in Oregon, Florida, London and Bristol, England, can rarely all unite for Thanksgiving. Since everyone globally likes feasts, we find it easy and delightful to create a larger family.
We often use the day to invite friends, wherever we are, to share our turkey, dressing, cranberries and pumpkin pie (though there have been challenges finding the ingredients at times – one year in Gloucestershire, we had to settle for making a yam pie as there were no pumpkins!) Many from other nations have left our Thanksgiving table knowing the true heart of America better after sharing this traditional meal with us.
This is a wonderful…simple way to enjoy friends and expand goodwill worldwide for which we are truly thankful.
Ecuador does not celebrate Thanksgiving but while living on the Equator, Merri and I learned a great lesson about the importance of having a thankful attitude.
This was the year 2000. Merri and I were spending an entire winter at our Ecuadorian plantation with a shaman and his apprentices.
The shaman and his apprentices stayed in the plantation house. We lived in this crumbling 10’x 10′ hut, no electricity, no phone and no hot water…for months just so we could have privacy and to be more or less in nature.
Our goal was to understand how the lifestyle of the indigenous equator and how the residents really lived, thought and felt. We did not expect how much we would learn.
Though the apprentices had no material wealth and earned about $30 a month, the joy and happiness during that time with those people was infectious, laughter always just waiting to bubble over at any event.
Then one day around thanksgiving the Ecuador’s economy literally came to a shrieking halt. Almost everything shot down.
The country ran out of gas. The banks were closed. The shaman and the apprentices lost every penny they had in the banks. Upon learning this, the shaman called for a mingo (this word means circle and represents a meeting) where he performed a ceremony of thanks for all the change that these losses would bring.
Later after the meeting we sat on the front porch and looked out, over this view.
We watched the setting sun, dropping in a burst of purple and mauve. The wind was warm and a symphony of insects gave a serenade. This now penniless shaman looked over and whispered. “Life is good”.
Changes in his financial life did not rob him of a penny’s worth of living. He felt what others considered a loss with gratitude.
I can’t put in words what a sense of peace and harmony rolled over us as we looked down at the lushness of the valley below, the mists rising, the waterfalls folding in lacy cascades, bird songs trilling through the clear air. The river although far below us was a great bubbling sound along with the strangeness of some of the bird calls. This was a joy we had not felt since we were kids.
As Merri and I enjoy this day of thanks, we feel that our thankfulness is heightened due to our sharing Thanksgiving with other cultures that have helped us learn to be thankful, about everything…even though they may seem negative at the time.
We cannot thank you enough! We look forward with great joy to sharing more ideas in the year ahead with you. If we can in some way make your life more joyous and help you laugh, learn and be grateful, we will truly be blessed. There is such beauty on this earth and in this world at this time. We feel privileged to be able to share it with you.
Be Smarter With Less StressJoin the top 3 percent of intelligent people in the world.
Become more independent and relaxed by becoming smarter.
A study of 10,000 British people studied the pure relationship between intelligence and happiness stability.
IQ can predict the emotional ups and downs of life. The research found that the lower the IQ, the more stress and higher the ups and downs in life satisfaction. The differences were not due to education, income, or jobs either, but simply IQ.

Free yourself by becoming smarter, healthier, happier… in just weeks… hearing a relaxation session that takes you into your secret rose garden.
Merri, David and I originally developed this session for our Super Thinking courses and have set it into an online workshop for you.
Listen… just 18 minutes day. We guarantee your life will be better.
Inflate Your IQ.
When it comes to money… inflation is cheating.
That’s bad for you.
When it comes to intelligence… inflating is smart… fair… good for you and it’s good for the rest of the world.
Monetary inflation is a sneaky government and business trick.
What cost a dollar in 1965 can easily cost $15 now.
They promise you more.
They devalue the currency so you get more dollars that buy less. They can rip off your salary, your pension…raise insurance, almost everything.
And they make you work harder… longer… for less.
Whittle, whittle, whittle. Push, push, push. That’s what monetary inflation does to you.
Fight back… overcome the inflation trick. Inflate your IQ as you relax.
Gain more than IQ.
Be smarter… more energetic…. healthier… more relaxed.
That’s the way to get ahead!
Create more income opportunity. Reduce stress. Improve your health. Be naturally smarter… use Super Thinking.
You can improve your IQ in just weeks.
You might well ask… How is this possible?
Here’s how the scientists say it is possible.
A Wall Street Journal article entitled “Ways to Inflate Your IQ”(1) show how you can be smarter and actually add matter to your brain. The article says:
Many people think of IQ as a genetic trait, like brown eyes or short legs: You’re born with it and you’re stuck with it.
Now, a growing body of research is showing that a person’s IQ can rise—and even fall—over the years.
Scores can change gradually or quickly, after as little as a few weeks of cognitive training, research shows.
British students were given IQ tests and brain scans at ages 12 to 16 and again about four years later. 9% of the students showed a significant change of 15 points or more in IQ scores.
The study published in Nature said that on a scale where 90 to 110 is considered average, one student’s IQ rose 21 points to 128 from 107, lifting the student from the 68th percentile to the 97th compared with others the same age.
MRIs in this study showed changes in gray matter in areas corresponding to fluctuations in the kid’s skills.
There are practical steps people can take to see longer-term IQ changes. New tasks stimulate the brain most. Young adults given just one month of intense training in juggling, found an increase in the corresponding gray matter in the brain as early as seven days after the training began.
Fluctuations in IQ scores over time underscore the brain-boosting benefits of musical training and new experiences throughout a lifetime.
Music lessons are linked to higher IQ throughout life. Six years’ lessons lifted children’s IQ scores an average 7.5 points.
Improve the brain through music… without lessons.
Here’s the Super Thinking story…
The educational program Merri and I developed uses a form of brain wave integration that increases IQ.
Super Thinking uses frequency (in music and a number of other ways) to integrate brain waves so the process of absorbing, processing and recalling information is vastly accelerated. The music creates the three C’s: Calm, Clarity and Coherence.
This Super Thinking program is not a gimmick or trick… just advanced education.
Certain types of Baroque music are the base, and they make you smarter!
At least four best selling books, “Psychic Discoveries Behind the Iron Curtain”, “Superlearning”, the “Mozart Effect” and “Superlearning 2000″ showed how to learn and think more powerfully based on systems drawn from the Bulgarian educational master, Dr. Georgi Lozanov.
This Baroque music tactic alone is so powerful that Small Business Innovation Research… an official site of the US government granted over $100,000 for the specific purpose they said was: to provide a method to remove barriers which hinder or prevent the employment of blind persons. An innovative method, the Lozanov Learning System, is proposed to help train blind persons to become computer programmers and operators of automated equipment.
Merri was among just a few who learned this technique directly from Dr. Lozanov the time he visited the USA.
Our Super Thinking workshop enhanced this system with numerous other tactics.
We added slight alterations in nutrition that create a higher IQ. Altered nutritional tips in Super Thinking can make anyone 25% smarter!
Baroque Music and nutrition are just part of seven, easy to use, learning techniques that make you smarter.
Gain any skill, from computers to athletics to conversational languages…in less time…two-to-five times faster.
Here’s a huge bonus. Super Thinking also relieves stress. Super Thinking is fun.
You can use a Super Thinking focus in everything: health… earning… education… investing.
Super Thinking works on the learner first…the data second. This system “grows the learner” rather than the information.
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 create a six inch IQ pipe!
Share our years of experience.
For nearly 50 years, Merri and I have conducted hundreds of courses and tours for tens of thousands, in dozens of countries (even behind the Iron Curtain). Our Super Thinking Workshop has been one of the most profound. Now the workshop is even better online because it condenses Super Thinking so you can increase your IQ, at home… right away.
The workshop shows how these mind expanding tactics can be applied to starting and running a business for extra income, to forex trading and investing. Athletes of all types… golfing being one common sport benefit. Our Super Thinking plan goes far beyond Lozanov and allows you to rapidly get smarter in every part of your life.
For example, real estate broker, Suzy Kurinsky took the workshop to help her learn Spanish.
She wrote: “You 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. 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!”
Super thinking can improve almost anything you do… faster, better, more fun and with less stress.
Another attendee to the Super Thinking Workshop sent this note.
Thank you for the wonderful workshop on Super Learning + Spanish! I really enjoyed the workshop and getting to know you. I can see several ways to apply what I learned in the classes I teach.
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.
Super Thinking can help improve your health. Super Thinking can make you rich and add richness to your life.
However the time, travel expense and workshop cost (delegates have paid up to $999) have prohibited many from getting this benefit.
That’s why we have created the workshop in electronic form. Get Super Thinking online for less than fifty bucks.
Relax in the Secret Rose Garden.
The workshop is divided into two parts. Part one is the application… the sessions that tell you exactly what to do, what music to use and even includes two recorded sessions based around a secret rose garden that you can use. We have kept this portion short and simple so you can easily start immediately.
Part two is a longer portion on theory.
Part one is enough.
Super Thinking is like jogging… giving results if you simply do it!
You do not have to know why Super Thinking works to increase your IQ. But Part Two explains why you are getting the good results from Part One, if you want to know.
You might ask…”Will it work for me”?
The Super Thinking Workshop will help increase your IQ.
I guarantee it. Order the Super Thinking Workshop. Use it for two months. If you are not totally satisfied… in any way, during that time, simply let me know and I’ll send a full refund… immediately… no questions asked.
Another Super Thinking workshop attendee wrote: 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”. 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. Thank you again for a wonderful four days!!
Inflation is a cheat… a crime when it comes to money. Inflating your IQ to beat inflation is simple good sense. Learn Super Thinking now with no risk. Begin to increase your intelligence today.
