What people are saying about the Silva Method

"Jose Silva, the founder of The Silva Method, is a man I have admired for a long time. I have used The Silva Method of visualization for many years. It has helped me overcome illnesses and accidents and avoid surgery. I urge you to attend Silva training sessions." -Wayne W. Dyer, author of Real Magic

"If you can count, you can count on the Silva Sales Power Method to skyrocket your sales. This teaches how to sell your way through the top. Learn to enjoy success, achievement and all the benefits of the good life like time, money and lifestyle freedom while selling yourself by Silva's ideas." -Mark Victor Hansen, motivational speaker, sales trainer, and author of Chicken Soup for the Soul.

"The most important technique I learned in The Silva Method was creative visualization . . . I found that it was amazingly effective." -Shakti Gawain, author of Creative Visualization

"Silva Method graduates told me they were able to relax, lose weight, quit smoking, find love, and achieve goals that had been eluding them for years. -Family Circle

"Sales Power is full of stories about people in sales who learn to tap more of their mental power while doing the tasks of selling, to achieve dramatic success. One technique, 'going to alpha,' involves deliberately slowing down your brain waves. Other exercises are aimed at activating your left and right hemispheres. The more effective you are, the more likely your prospect is to take action." -Srikumar Rao, in Success Magazine, May 1992
