the Founder and Principal Researcher
The story of Jose Silva, the mind behind The Silva Method, is one of the world’s greatest success stories. During his lifetime, Jose Silva was a businessman, athlete, artist, educator, scientist, philosopher, and the founder of The Silva Method.
After starting his business career at the tender age of six, this self-educated man would eventually work his way up and become a well-respected businessman, established an electronics training school in his hometown Community College, designed and received patents for several biofeedback instruments, and wrote over a dozen books that would reached over two dozen countries.
From 1944 to 1953, during which time he worked primarily with children (most of them his own) as his research subjects. During this time he worked one-on-one using a blend of hypnosis and yoga to help his subjects increase their IQ mind and your own responses to stressful events, you will gain power over your own life!
He spent his entire lifetime developing his creative and intuitive abilities and teaching others to find their own abilities within themselves. Silva spent over 20 years studying great minds, researching the human condition, and developing self-help programs before unveiling his findings. Silva’s research findings – The Silva Method — first made its way to the public eye in 1966. Today his life’s work is being presented in over 30 languages in 110 countries.
Jose Silva served as Chairman of the Board of The Silva Method up until 1999, when he passed away peacefully in his home.
Jose Silva, founder of The Method, spent 22 years studying the world’s greatest minds of every discipline – including scientists, religious gurus, non-traditional healing groups, psychologists and eastern philosophers.
The culmination of this period was the receipt of the brush off reply from Dr. Joseph B. Rhine, stating that rather than having trained a person to become clairvoyant, that he had found a natural clairvoyant.
