The Silva Method Of Mind Development and Stress Control

This section discusses the Silva Method course, curriculum and history. If you are looking for instructions and/ or audio guides for Silva meditation techniques, please go here

The program was developed by Jose Silva in the late forties, is a catalyst of the mind-body-spirit movement.  Many modern-day "new thought" gurus including Dr. Wayne Dyer, Jack Canfield, Shakti Gawain and many others, give credit to the Silva Method for part of their personal growth and success.

Because I taught the Silva Method for almost twenty years and facilitated the instructor training for four years, students are often curious to know if I would still recommend the program -- now that I am no longer involved with the organization. The answer is a resounding YES!

The original course was appropriately called Silva Mind Control but they changed the name because some people misinterpreted it as a course to manipulate other people -- when really it is about SELF mind control -- quieting the mind and using mind control techniques to solve your own problems. The first level courses are now called Silva Life Systems and Silva Intuition Training.

Here are some home-made videos made by some of my Silva Method students about the program:

With an offer of a money back guarantee, what's holding you back from participating in this exquisite training experience?"
