Quantum Living in Ecuador

Quantum Living Secrets:  Age is just a Number

Special Women’s Event in Ecuador, September 20-24, 2010.

I have written a number of times about how Merri and I are at retirement age, but we haven’t slowed down, or even considered stopping working, because we love what we are doing.  People can’t believe sometimes how we can keep the pace we do at our ages.  I’ve also written about our experiences with the Ecuador Shamans and how living in Ecuador can reduce stress.

This special event for women (men are not excluded) is the perfect opportunity for you to learn the secrets of ageless living while enjoying the stress-free Ecuador environment.

Take some time for yourself, relax and de-stress from the sometimes hectic Western lifestyle, and learn secrets of ageless living that can transform the way you live.  Set aside 5 days to:

  • Relax and rejuvenate in the mystical mountains of beautiful Ecuador
  • Redefine your concept of aging and reinvent your life
  • Learn practical tips and techniques for a more holistic and healthy lifestyle
  • Tap into your creative power to more fully live your passion
  • Experience a different culture and broaden your perspectives
  • Spend a day at the Relais and Chateaux rated La Mirage garden hotel and spa, included in your registration

Nancy Showalter, who lives with her husband in Ecuador, will guide you through the journey of discovering 7 Secrets for Ageless Living and how you to apply them in your life:

Secret #1:  Invest in Yourself

There are two vital areas in life where you want to invest in yourself.  Learn what these are and why you do not want to ignore them.

Secret #2:  Use all of Your Resources

Discover keys to unlock the power that resides within you, and use that power for constructive change.

Secret #3:  Continue to Learn

Continuous learning is one of the greatest anti-aging secrets of all.  Learn why, and how to never stop.

Secret #4:  Do What Is Natural and Healthy

Health at all levels of your being is one of your greatest assets.  Learn healthier ways of living, unique ways to commune with nature, and specific practices that can improve your health.

Secret #5:  Simplify Your Life

There are cycles in life when it becomes important to let go—let go of things, of beliefs, of memories, or of desires.  Learn how to identify what—and when it is time—to let go, and ways to help you do it.

Secret #6:  Use the Tools at Your Disposal

Learn simple, but powerful tools to overcome your fears, release painful memories, better navigate the challenges of life, and be at peace with whatever life brings you.

Secret #7:  Be the Change

In order to change your condition in life, your relationships, or the world around you, you must first make the choice yourself to become the way you want others to be.  Discover the power of choice, and how to identify what holds you back from being who you desire to be.

Nancy and Carl Showalter reinvented their lives and moved to Ecuador over two years ago.  Having traveled to Ecuador several times in a previous job, Nancy loved the beautiful people and the special energy she felt in the Andes, and wanted to share the experience with Carl.  So in 2004, they registered for our International Business and Mystical Andes tour held in Quito that year.

Two years later, they attended our Super Learning Spanish course in July 2006.  During that course, they separately, but simultaneously, felt inspired to look for property to purchase in Cotacachi.  Through a series of events—and nothing short of magical—they found the property of their dreams.  By the end of that year, they were the proud owners of a charming little cottage on a lovely piece of  property just outside of town.

After some remodeling and several trips back and forth, the property was ready.  They sold just about everything they owned and in May 2008, they moved to Cotacachi with 8 suitcases filled with what was left of their personal belongings.  They now live in a beautiful setting between two  picturesque mountains that not only foster a healthy, stress-free lifestyle, but is perfect for the publishing business they have since started in Ecuador.

Over the last 30 years, Nancy has taught self-empowering principles and their practical application in the United States, Canada, Latin America, and Europe.  In 2003, she and her husband founded Quantum Living Institute through which they teach.  They recently returned from Europe where they presented a two-day seminar on personal transformation.  Nancy is the author of two mini-books, Quantum Living, Keys for Transformational Change and Ascent Back to God.

She has a Bachelors degree in the Liberal Arts with a concentration in Peace and Conflict Resolution.  As part of her studies in Peace and Conflict Resolution, she traveled to the Middle East to Israel, Gaza, and the Golan Heights, meeting and discoursing with Israelis and Palestinians on their perspectives and hopes and dreams for a peaceful future—an experience she describes as life-changing.  Nancy is a teacher of Hatha Yoga, and has studied many of the Eastern mystical paths.  She has TOEFL  certification for teaching English as a foreign language, and during her first school year in Cotacachi, volunteered her services in one of the underprivileged preschools.  Nancy brings creativity and a unique integrated perspective in her presentations that participants find to be both practical and personally transforming.

She says:

Ecuador is the perfect environment for getting away from it all, relaxing, and at the same time reenergizing your life.  The people here and the relaxed lifestyle invite us to reassess how we live our everyday lives.  When we moved to Ecuador, some of our friends were fearful and thought it was too big of a change.  They asked, “What if you don’t like it?”  Our answer, “Then we’ll do something else.”

Unfortunately we sometimes forget that we have choices and that change can be, and usually is, healthy when we embrace it.  I look forward to sharing the principles of living that I have found to be self-empowering, and that have the potential to transform a stressful life into a healthy, fulfilled life, no matter where you live or what your life circumstances may be.

Ladies, can we talk?  This is a workshop we designed for you.  Whether you are young, old or like most of us, somewhere in between, we wanted to put together a unique experience for you.  We will help you stretch your boundaries, do some things totally out of the ordinary and create lasting memories.  I’ve talked to many ladies who are interested in traveling to Ecuador, but hesitant to go on their own.  Well, this is your time.

Nancy Showalter is a great example of living the “age is just a number” lifestyle.  She will share her secrets with us for staying active, trim and happy.  We will show you easy ways to switch out unhealthy habits for beneficial ones.  Adding just a few healthy habits to your lifestyle can have a major impact.

Since Nancy and I designed this workshop, we added some of our favorite things!

How about some pampering at the luxurious LaMirage spa?  We included a full treatment for each delegate.  You will get to choose from their menu of options:   the Lavender treatment, Cleopatra’s milk bath, the Kofan Amazon herbal treatment, Ecuadorian hot stone energy treatment, or the Kissed by Angels treatment are just a few of the choices.  The gardens surrounding the spa, guarded by resident peacocks, are filled with hummingbirds visiting the thousands of colorful, tropical blossoms.  You will feel like you’ve been transported to a slice of paradise.  It’s a wonderful escape.

We will do some sightseeing and we’ll travel to some local restaurants, off the tourist track,  but well known to locals for their spectacular setting and delicious meals.

As a special treat, we will participate in a sacred ceremony with our local Shamana.  She will bless us with good health, good fortune and happiness.

And, of course, we’ll sneak in a little time for shopping, you can’t be this close to the Otavalo Market and not visit!

Oh, I almost forgot to mention the volcanic hot springs!  It’s one of my all time favorite places on earth, high up on a tranquil mountain side with unbelievable views.

As you can see, we will be busy, but we wanted you to spend a few days with us and leave with wonderful memories, new insights, new friends and a renewed sense of adventure.

The workshop will be held September 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 2010 (Monday through Friday).  We will provide transportation back to Quito on the evening of September 24.

The price is $599/single or $949/double.  We encourage you to bring sisters, moms, daughters, grandmothers, friends and have offered a generous discount for two.  We are not excluding men, but we are encouraging the ladies.

Included in the tour:  all transportation during the tour, including pickup in Quito on September 20 and return to Quito September 24, all admission charges, LaMirage Spa treatment, lectures, ceremonies, everything except accommodations and meals.
