The Silva Method is practiced and endorsed by CEOs, artists, actors, writers, athletes, personal growth leaders, healthcare professionals and scientists, 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 heightened intuition, 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, focus and intuition, 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. And to also intuitively make the right game-altering decisions. 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.”
