1. What is the
The Silva Method is the first program developed
to help people learn to enter the alpha brain wave frequency dimension
by using mere thoughts with controlled awareness. At this dimension,
we can learn to use the right brain hemisphere and the 'subjective'
level to think.
Independent scientific studies have demonstrated that alpha brain
wave activity is associated with inner levels of mental awareness,
tranquillity, rest and relaxation. This alpha wave activity is
associated with inspiration, creativity, accelerated healing,
concentration, learning, E.S.P, and many other exciting phenomena.
The 2 ½ day Silva Method training helps an individual to
use their right brain hemisphere to rapidly bring about rapid
elimination of negative thinking, mental blocks, phobias and self-imposed
limitations while allowing imprints of positive physical, personality
and attitudinal changes learnt through any other programs.
Since we use our mind to interact with ourselves
as well as the external world, by having superior control over
our inner-conscious mind we are able to achieve a clairvoyant
living with increased automated awareness, thus becoming more
of the person that we desire to be.
2. Why is it called the "Silva"
It is named after the developer who started it all, Jose Silva.
Research to develop the Silva Method began in Laredo, Texas, in
1944 by Jose Silva whose original purpose was to help his children
to improve their ability to concentrate, learn more, and make
better grades. It eventually led to the creation of a program
that has helped millions of people worldwide to change their lives
for the better and achieve goals successfully.
3. What does the coursework (Self Empowerment
Program or SEP) consist of?
There are four modules:
MC 101 CR for Controlled Relaxation - teaches the understanding
of causes of (di)stress in every life and how to address it with
mind-directed solutions to achieve extraordinary ability to control
vitality and wellness. Teaches how to reach within seconds a level
at which the mind achieves extraordinary ability to control vitality
and energy for the body and assist in the solution of problems
without stress or strain.
Benefits to the participants are increased efficiency, concentration,
relaxation, self-control, and enhanced learning capacity and improved
MC 202 GSI for General Self-Improvement - teaches the expansion
of awareness, improved image creation and visualisation for application
in specific problems, such as improvement of memory, enhancement
of self-esteem, eliminate negative habits, control pain and physiological
functions. Program your subconscious mind for success.
MC 303 ESP for Effective Sensory Projection - teaches the extension
of control-led awareness into the subconscious building on the
knowledge and experience gained in the first two modules. "Imagineering"
techniques are provided to enhance your sensitivity and empathy
and to develop creativity, superior intuition and psychic abilities
such as mental telepathy and clairvoyance.
MC 404 AESP for Applied Effective Sensory Projection - teaches
the use of the participants' "subjective points of reference"
established during the sessions for problem solving. “Experiencing
is believing.” Practice is done through "case-working"
in class. Get immediate feedback using real-life cases. Make better
decisions using your intuitive faculties. Strengthen and deepen
relationships subjectively. With controlled management of mental
energy, participants take recognition of the tremendous powers
of the human intelligence to assist in their problem resolution
and efforts to make this a better world in which to live.
4. Is the mind training effective?
Since 1944, over tens of millions of people in 130 countries
from all walks of life and of all ages, creeds, cultures and educational
attainments have asserted that, "It works!"
There have been powerful testimonies of successes achieved through
the use of these mental techniques in the areas of stress management,
health and wellness, business and career, relationships and personal
goals, learning, athletic excellence, spirituality and happiness.

7. What is the format of the coursework?
The program essentially equips the participants with simple but
effective "mental tools" which are taught through lectures
in the conscious level and "programmed" into the subconscious
level with "mind-directing exercises".
8. Will I be able to learn - at my age,
when I have been out of school for long?
Changes in the world we live in - in employment, software, equipment
and personal interests - require us to learn new skills. If we
do not grow with the changes, we will be negatively changed beyond
our own recognition and liking.
Everyday, and in every aspect of our lives, we must draw on every
one of our brain's abilities to keep up with the swiftly moving
world around us. The great comforting assurance is that scientists
have proved that we can all be continuing learners. We already
have all the critical abilities and they're hardwired into our
brain. What we need to acquire are skills, the mental tools to
optimize our innate resources. And the Silva Method offers these
skills and mental tools.
According to a management guru, there are 4 Ls in life, among
others: to live, to love, to learn, and to leave a legacy. What
would you want to be your legacy to the world, to life?
9. What if I don't fully absorb in the sessions?
The distinct difference of this Silva Method program from all
other seminars and workshops is that it offers a lifelong free
"world repeat" privilege.
Graduate-practitioners who have taken the SEP in one country
can return to review and refresh, as many times as needed, in
the same place or in any country that offers the program. Satisfaction
of learning is thus ensured. Graduates are given a "certificate"
and "ID card" which serves as a "world passport"
for lifelong re-learning. (In some venues, a nominal "seat-fee"
is charged though.)
There is no reason or excuse for not being able to learn, master,
10. How does the Silva Method compare with other mind programs in
There is probably no other similar mind development program.
If at all, other mind development or motivational trainings tell
you the importance of optimism and staying focused and positive.
The Silva Method actually gives you a STEP-BY-STEP, proven process
for mastering this skill. Based on more than six decades of brain
research, The Silva Method is a reliable way to make more use
of the untapped powers of your mind.
Best of all, it is the only program that entitles you to repeat
the program anywhere in the world, under any licensed Silva Method
instructor, for the rest of your life. There is a directory of
over 1,000 certified instructors worldwide.
