Silva Courses From the Mind of José Silva
Ed Bernd Jr. and Jose Silva in Mr. Silva's office with some of the books they have coauthored
     You can be assured you are getting genuine José Silva materials and information directly from the mind of José Silva when you purchase products from Avlis Productions: We studied with José Silva We've been teaching his courses for many years We worked for him and with him We participated in research projects with him We wrote books with him, and developed courses under his guidance and direction      You have a right to know who and where we are, and to know about our background and experience, so we invite you to meet the leaders of the Avlis Productions team:      Katherine Watson went to work for José Silva shortly after graduating from high school in Laredo, Texas, and she has been involved in the Silva systems ever since.      In addition to managing the Avlis Productions business, Kathy also builds custom web sites and has been active with many volunteer organizations, including volunteer fire departments and the local unit of the American Red Cross. She is an active member of her church, and the local Lions Club.      She has used the Silva system in her personal and business life. Her success in selling earned her a chapter in the book about José Silva's UltraMind ESP System.      Kathy helped in the production of the Holistic Faith Healing home study course in 1999, and she now travels to present Silva courses and workshops and to recruit and train new Silva UltraMind Systems Instructors.      Ed Bernd Jr. grew up in the newspaper business. He took his first Silva class in 1975 and began teaching the Silva Method in 1977. In late 1981 Mr. Silva asked him to join the company's world headquarters staff in Laredo, and he has been here ever since. One of his first projects was editing José Silva's autobiography. In all, he has worked on more than a dozen books with Mr. Silva, as editor or coauthor.      With Mr. Silva's help, Ed developed Silva programs for sales people and athletes, he participated in holistic faith healing research with Mr. Silva, and he helped prepare manuals for the new Silva UltraMind ESP System. He has been coordinator of the Silva International Graduate Association since 1983.      Ed now develops new products for Avlis Productions with help from José Silva Jr. In fact, Joe and Ed coauthored the newest Silva book, José Silva's Everyday ESP, published in July 2007 by New Page Books.      José Silva Jr. - known as Joe or Joe Jr. to his friends - is one of the last links to his father’s pioneering research, and he serves as special consultant to Avlis Productions.      Joe was born in 1941, the first of José and Paula Silva’s 10 children. When his father began to experiment with hypnosis in the late 1940s using Joe’s younger sisters and brothers as subjects, Joe was there to help and to document much of the research. He recorded pre-natal age regression sessions when his siblings went back to so-called "past life regressions."      Eventually the research led to a way to develop ESP and Joe and the other children were encouraged to practice is at every opportunity. During those same years, Joe and his brothers also helped out in the family’s electronics repair business.      Joe was in the U. S. Navy serving in Vietnam when his father began taking his findings to the public in the late 1960s via a series of workshops. There was a huge demand for José Silva’s "Mind Control" method, as he called it back then, so Mr. Silva asked Joe to come back to Laredo as soon as he could and help run the new seminar business. Joe returned to do just that in 1969, and was one of the three incorporators of Silva International, the corporation that still manages the that original course.      In 1995 Mr. Silva asked Joe to take over the Presidency of Silva International, a position he held for more than 10 years. In 1998 when they set up a new company to manage the new Silva UltraMind ESP System, Joe was named director of that company and assigned the majority ownership.      Throughout the tremendous growth of the Silva Method from its modest beginnings in Laredo, Texas, to more than 100 nations around the world, on to the new trail blazing UltraMind ESP System, Joe has been the most consistent factor, along with his father and his Uncle Juan, who was a co-researcher with José Silva.      Joe’s unique perspective of observing his father’s research and the results it produced has provided great insight to help him make good decisions for the companies that manage the business, and for the worldwide team of Instructors who depend on the Laredo headquarters to help them present seminars that accurately represent the research so that people around the world can take full advantage of Everyday ESP in their own lives.      Joe has been married to his wife Ruth since 1967. They have two children, David and Ruthie, and five grandchildren. Joe holds a black belt in Karate, and helped Ed develop the Silva Star Athlete program in 1984, and The Silva Method-Think and Grow Fit book, which was published by Career Press in 1996.      In 2007 Joe and Ed teamed up to write the latest Silva book: José Silva’s Everyday ESP.
