5 different ways the glass of water technique can be use were explained... not only for solving problems or triggering dreams.
The course also taught specific applications of the 3 fingers technique for studying. How to use the Silva Method during a test was provided in a step by step proceedure.
I've never found glove anesthesia mentioned in any of his books nor the use of hand levitation.
The lectures also included subjects like mirrors of success. Using the Silva Method for solving business problems. How to use the Silva method when face with a moral issue... ie situations where you've been asked to help but it causes moral conflict in relation to your personal beliefs.
The course most certainly explained mental & sensory projection into objects, plants, etc better than any of the written publications or tapes.
The classes also provided alternative techniques for goal setting.. not only the 3 mirror technique but also the 2 scenes method. It outlined the 10 step goal setting process.
The advanced and ultra courses began teaching stuff that Ed Bernd Jnr published after Mr Silva passed away. The video technique I learnt in 1992. The 10 second wonder cure where you can help someone else overcome physical pain just as effectively as you can stop pain within yourself by saying 'gone' 3 times I have never found recorded in any of the books. The unimold was never covered in any of the books.
The 3 to 1/10 to 1 awaken at night for best time for programing technique is explained in the method for business managers book however it has far more uses that were explained in the seminar. I find this technique most useful. The boardroom technique was taught in class but that is explained by other authors... the silva classes just taught how to work with in in alpha.
One of the lectures I learnt how to overcome motion sickness not using a silva technique but then the interaction between teachers and graduates created some unique applications of the method. The method used by one of the lecturers to obtain a passing grade in a subject without even opening the text book was handy. The discussions and interaction between graduates and lecturers was invaluable.
The fact that you only need to elevate you eyes by 20 degrees above the plain of vision induces an increase of alpha wave pattern winthin the individual was explained in a lecture. My later research confirmed this and it explains why lecturers should alway aim to stand above the class... it is easier for the students to learn when looking slightly up toward the teacher to a natural increase in the learning state. Also explained was the slight lowering of the forehead while going into alpha is perferable over the stiff upright head when entering the alpha/theta state for programming. It seem that it brings about a more relaxed state.
Specific methods for reaching alpha with eyes open was given. (not using the 3 fingers technique).
There is more but that gives a general idea of what I was taught.
