What the scientific community has to say about the Silva Method?
We’ve spent nearly 50 years researching, experimenting and collaborating with leading scientists, researchers and personal growth leaders.
The late Jose Silva is the creator of The Silva Method who dedicated his life to awakening the mind’s hidden potential. Jose Silva will indeed go down in history, as one of the pioneers who started it all. He started in 1944 with an act of love to help his children improve their memory and learning capabilities. He accomplished this but when the children began to accurately anticipate his questions and/or new topics, he realized that he was onto something of more value than improving memory.
He then, after extensive research and development with numerous modalities; such as meditation, hypnosis, positive psychology, parapsychology and biofeedback, identified unifying principles, developed the Silva Method mind technology and began teaching it in 1966 throughout Texas.
The first scientist to investigate the research of The Silva Method was Dr. J. Wilfrid 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
