In it you’ll find a time-tested system of active mind tools and insights that over 6 million people – including CEOs, athletes, bestselling artists and medical professionals – use to realize their peak potential every day.
And in 2012, 5 years after launching the original program, we’ve updated The Silva Life System to a new version, with a brand new framework and optimized tools and techniques for better results and a more engaging learning experience.
What You Gain from Silva
The Silva Method has been studied in universities around the world and its benefits are scientifically proven . This is what you can expect to gain…
1Banish stress for good
Learn how to put yourself into a deep level of meditation within a matter of minutes. Nothing bothers you. Sounds don’t disturb you. Stress melts away. Productivity soars. Ambitions stay clearly in focus without distraction. Worries no longer suffocate you.
The Silva Life System takes you through 10 sessions of deep Alpha and Theta Level meditations, as an instructor guides you mentally and verbally through the process.
2Develop positive thought patterns
Upon studying Silva’s training, Dr. James Motif of the Psychology Department in Hope University, Australia, found that it led to an increase in adherence to moral and ethical standards , positive attitudes to family members and better social self-image. It also led to a decrease in self-criticism.
In addition, Dr. George Desau , in a study on Silva graduates at the Incarnate School for Girls in San Antonio, Texas, found that our curriculum boosted ego strength, helped prevent shyness, increased trust and cooperation among students and led to greater self-assurance and warm-heartedness.
3Learn to naturally accelerate your body’s rate of healing
Jose Silva firmly believed that the mind is the driving force behind ALL healing.
In the Silva Life System you will learn a variety of mental visualization methods designed to accelerate your mind and body’s natural capacity for physical and emotional healing. These results have been studied and endorsed by a variety of medical practitioners.
For example Dr. O. Carl Simonton , a world-renowned cancer therapy researcher, described the Silva Method as one of the “most powerful single tools” that he can offer to his patients.
4Boost your creativity
Studies show that creativity is enhanced when functioning at the Alpha level.
Listening to the Silva Life System, you will learn how to enter the Alpha level at will and then to use your creative mind to help you think of solutions to problems, enhance creativity or let inspiration flow.
Silva graduates have used this process to develop patents, start new businesses, or to create works of art, literature and music. Here are some examples:
Bestselling author Richard Bach praised The Silva Method publicly: “Mental discipline and creative visualization are what’s behind the power of the Silva Method,” he said in an article in Harper’s Bazaar magazine. Bach also credits inspiration from The Silva Method as having helped him finish his best-selling book, “Jonathan Livingston Seagull”.
Band leader Dr. Severinsen has composed music while at his Alpha level. In a newspaper article, he claimed it helped him connect better with his own spiritual life, and in doing so he became a much better person.
World renowned sculptor Harry Jackson said it brought him the peace of mind he had been searching for.
5Think big and attain powerful goals
The Silva Life System is more than a motivational self-help course. Motivational self-help courses leave you on a high for a few days but people often revert to their old ways after several weeks. Not so with Silva.
Studies have shown that the Silva programs lead to you becoming permanently more self-assured and positive. But most of all, you learn to think bigger, set higher goals and seek to achieve things that contribute to humanity.
Whether you’re 12 years old or 80 years old, Silva makes you think bigger, and plants in you the unbreakable desire to accomplish and do more with your life.
6Performance enhancement for sports, career
Dr. Charles Garfield , former NASA researcher and current president of The Performance-Science Institute in Berkeley, California, talks about a startling experiment conducted by Soviet sports scientists.
The study examined the effect of mental training, including visualization, on four groups of world-class athletes just prior to the 1980 Olympics in Lake Placid, New York. The four groups of elite athletes were divided as follows:
Group 1: did 100% physical training.
Group 2: did 75% physical training, 25% mental training.
Group 3: did 50% physical training, 50% mental training.
Group 4: did 25% physical training, 75% mental training.
What the researchers found was that group 4—the group with the most mental training—had shown significantly greater improvement than group 3.
Likewise, group 3 showed more improvement than group 2, and group 2 showed more improvement than group 1.
The results were astonishing. Who would expect that athletes training mentally would be able to advance further than their counterparts who were training physically?
Garfield said, “During mental rehearsal, athletes create mental images of the exact movements they want to emulate in their sport. Use of this skill substantially increases the effectiveness of goal-setting, which up until then had been little more than a dull listing procedure.”
With the Silva Life System, you learn to practice such mental rehearsals. The results can be very significant.
7Sleep better and learn to practice creative dreaming
Silva teaches you to “command” your mind to let you fall asleep when you choose to. It also shows you how to set your internal clock to be able to wake up anytime—without the use of an alarm clock. Imagine how much productivity and energy you will gain by always having a good night’s rest.
You will also learn a wonderful technique to help you remember your dreams—and even to ask for dreams that could contain the solution to problems. Throughout history, people have credited dreams with helping them develop new ideas . The inventor Elias Howe got the idea for the sewing machine through a dream. Paul McCartney came up with the song “Yesterday” , in a dream. The structure of the Carbon-6 molecule was discovered through a dream.
Now you can use your dreams to help boost your creativity and inspiration.
Silva recognizes that everyone is born with intuitive abilities, and that anyone who learns how to manifest these abilities can function at a highly intuitive level. Through our proprietary scientific and time-tested process, you’ll learn how to use your inbuilt psychic abilities in everyday life, and use your “gut feeling” for a happier, more successful and more enlightened life.
A research project conducted by Dr. George Maycock at Appalachian State University in North Carolina demonstrated that students who completed Silva training showed a significant increase in creative and intuitive functioning. Of the 30 students who participated, 25 showed gains in intuitive abilities.
Four of the other five (who did not show improvement) were already functioning in a high intuitive mode before the training. Intuition is valuable for students and adults alike. One researcher found that 70 percent of gifted or high-IQ students were predominantly intuitive, while only 39% of students in regular classes were intuitive.
Best-Selling Author Shakti Gawain on the Silva Method
One of the earliest workshops I took was the Silva Mind Control Course… The most important technique I learned in that course was the basic technique of creative visualization… Our rational mind is like a computer… The intuitive mind, on the other hand, seems to give access to an infinite supply of information. It appears to be able to tap into a deep storehouse of knowledge and wisdom…

We’re so much stronger than we think
We waste too much of our time dragging ourselves under. If we spent one half of it just researching in our mind how to deal with life, we’d find we’re so much stronger than we think. (She became a Mind Control graduate on the recommendation of another graduate, opera singer Marguerite Piazza).

How a radio repairman in Texas discovered The Silva Method
Back in 1964, in the sleepy town of Laredo, Texas, an engineer named Jose Silva ran a radio repair shop. But aside from his career, he also had a keen interest in hypnosis and the human mind – and he spent most of his nights studying the works of visionaries like Freud, Jung and Adler.
Silva’s life changed when he stumbled on a question. Through his work, he was aware of Ohm’s Law – which states that when you reduce the resistance in a wire, more electricity can flow through it. This led him to wonder…
“Does the human mind have ‘resistance’? And what would happen if you could reduce it?”
Decades before Silva’s research, scientists had already discovered what is known as the Alpha and Theta levels of mind: a state typically experienced during sleep or meditation, where the brainwaves slow down and the mind enters a state of deep relaxation.
Silva believed that these heightened states of consciousness held the keys to the evolution of mankind
And so he began creating specific mind tools and exercises that would allow a person to enter the Alpha and Theta levels while awake – and tap into hidden reservoirs of intuition, creativity and healing.
At first, Silva used his techniques – which he called ‘The Silva Method’ – to help his children improve their grades, boost their intuition, creativity and IQ, and sharpen their memory.
Word spread fast, Silva’s techniques continued to evolve, and within months he was training people in his community, then across the country, and eventually across the world. Today, over 5 decades later, The Silva Method is used by over 6 million people in 110 countries – and now you’re about to experience what it can do for YOU.

From business to wellness to the arts…
The Silva Method is practiced by many experts who are leading the way in bringing conscious practices to the world:
Many top-shelf corporations, including RCA Records , Green Mountain Coffee and The Arnold Agency , have sent their employees for Silva training. Benefits have been reported in various areas, including amplified creativity, improved business management, enhanced motivation and better stress management. Robert Stiller, the CEO of Green Mountain Coffee, says “ Silva demonstrates that there is no limit to what the mind can do. “
Many artists, writers, actors and performers use the Silva Method to enhance their creativity and focus, and come up with highly creative ideas. Notable students include the Opera singer Marguerite Piazza , singer Vicki Carr , and actresses Carol Lawrence (the first live theater actress to get a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame) and Loretta Swit .
Best-selling author Richard Bach credits the Silva Method for the inspiration to help him finish his iconic book, Jonathan Livingston Seagull , which went on to sell over a million copies and was featured on the cover of TIME magazine.
Russell “Bucky” Dent , a baseball player with the Chicago White Sox , began studying the Silva Method in 1975. In 1978 he was named Most Valuable Player at the World Series. Dent has been quoted as saying, “The Silva Method helped me with my concentration, and it helped me to relax before the pressures of a game.” To this day, many world-class athletes use the principles of The Silva Method to visualize their desired outcomes, improve focus and keep their minds and bodies in optimal condition. Silva has an especially huge following in sports that encourage a mind-body approach to physical excellence.
A wide range of top personal growth leaders, coaches and authors use, endorse and are influenced by The Silva Method. Wayne Dyer says, “anything with the name Jose Silva as an author has my vote before I open to page one,” and Shakti Gawain says it allows you to “tap into a deep storehouse of knowledge and wisdom.” The Silva Method even inspired her best-selling book, Creative Visualization .
Many healthcare professionals and scientists have integrated the principles of The Silva Method into their healing regimens as a crucial component of effective mind-body healing. Dr. O Carl Simonton , founder of the Simonton Research Institute, which practices and researches imagery therapy for patients, calls The Silva Method one of “the most powerful single tools that I have to offer patients.” Professor Clancy D. McKenzie , founder of the American Mental Health Association, is also known to have used Silva techniques to aid his patients.
Five decades of scientific research and collaboration.
We’ve spent nearly 50 years researching, experimenting and collaborating with leading scientists, researchers and personal growth leaders.
The first scientist to investigate the research of The Silva Method was Dr. J. Wilfred Hahn of the Mind Science Foundation in California, who went on to endorse our work. Since then, various research institutions, universities and scientists have studied and verified our research, including:
Duke University , North Carolina
Trinity University , Texas
University of Texas , Texas
Wayland Baptist University , Texas
C.W. Post Campus of Long Island University , New York
Canisius College , New York
Over the years we have continued to fine-tune the process of tapping into the human mind’s inner potential, and profoundly changing our students’ lives in the process.
Every lesson, every technique and every meditation you’ll find in The Silva Life System is a direct result of this tireless scientific research —and we’re confident you won’t find any other mind empowerment program that’s as scientifically backed, empirically proven and easy-to-use as ours.

The New York Times covers The Silva Method
The New York Times April 16, 1972
The following extract is from, “Can Man Control His Mind”, published on April 16, 1972:
A recent study by Trinity University, San Antonio, Texas would appear to indicate that graduates of Mind Control do attain a high degree of Alpha production. C. W. Post College, Greenvale, L. I., is planning to offer the course at its business school this fall and Canisius College will offer it in its Department of Religious Studies.
A visit to a Mind Control class in New York discloses more stockbrokers than bearded way out and the dress style is closer to Brooks Brothers than to the East Village. A major New York company has sent all its top executives through the course and its president , a hard-headed businessman, is seriously thinking of instituting an in-house training program for all employees. He refused to speak for the record, saying, “We think there is something there, but I don’t want to alarm our stockbrokers at the moment.
Other businessmen are not so reluctant. Lee Epstein, a vice- president and art group supervisor at Doyle Dane Bernbach volunteered: “It opened the gates for me. It has re-energized me, made me more creative and yet more relaxed. I practice it every day and get better and better at my job and my life.”
Now accessible to everyone
The Silva Life System is the result of over five decades of research, optimization and collaboration with some of the world’s best minds. In this time we’ve spent over $2 million to fund our efforts.
If you were to look for any other solution to improving your life, like medication, therapy or other personal growth events or materials, you’d easily spend hundreds if not thousands of dollars a month in accumulated fees (and we’re confident that none of these solutions would be as lasting and effective as ours).
And if you wanted to learn the teachings of The Silva Method at one of our sold-out seminars, you’d pay around $1,000 for a ticket—and that’s not including the cost of travel and accommodation.
But because The Silva Life System is a home training program, we’re able to cut down our costs. And although the full seminar experience cannot be replaced, it’s an excellent way to gain the benefits of The Silva Method from the comfort of your home— for a fraction of the cost .
And so the price for a copy of The Silva Life System 2.0 is not $1,000, $500, $300 or even $200…
It starts at only $149 for instant access—and that’s the lowest price you’ll ever find for a scientifically verified, empirically proven and time-tested solution to awakening your mind’s full potential.
Each Module comes with Lecture Tracks and Meditation Training Tracks
Listen to the Lecture tracks when jogging, while in your car during a commute, on the subway or bus or plane . Pop the tracks onto your iPod or CD player and take them wherever you go.
With the Silva Life System you’ll actually look forward to your long commute. Imagine that!
Listen to the Meditation tracks at home or work, when you’re seated in a comfortable way and able to relax. They will not just train you, but also put you in such an amazing relaxed state of mind, that you won’t be able to get enough. You will want to do this daily, it’s as pleasurable as taking a nice hot bath or receiving a wonderful massage.
