Jose Silva Jr.
Known as Joe Jr. to his friends, Jose Silva Jr. is one of the last links to his father’s pioneering research.
When his father began to experiment with hypnosis in the late 1940's using Joe’s younger sisters and brothers as subjects, Joe was there to help and to document much of the research.
His knowledge has been invaluable in helping to carry on his father's mission.
Ed Bernd Jr.
Ed grew up in the newspaper business. He took his first Silva class in 1975 and began teaching Silva Mind Control in 1977. In late 1981 Jose 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 Jose 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 also 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.
