Here are just a few words about your future Silva instructor, so that you know, at least a little bit, what kind of a person you are going to spend some of your most interesting days to come with if you choose to take the course, which I recommend wholeheartedly, of course!
Actually, you will not be spending this time primarily with me, much rather with your own self, discovering your own hidden abilities, knowledge and beauty, and developing new skills that will help you to live a better and better life day by day.
My name is Andrea Domjan and am Hungarian. (Therefore the ’j’ in the middle is pronounced as ’y’.) I learnt English in an international setting at a very young age, because my father worked for UNESCO in Kuwait, and I went to the New English School there at the vulnerable young age of 12. I had hardly learnt any English beforehand, so the first few months were undescribably difficult, as I didn’t know how to handle the loneliness which my lack of English knowledge and therefore my life without any normal means of communication entailed. I only wish I had known the Silva Method then, because I would have been able to spare myself a large proportion of the suffering, I’m sure…
Luckily, I did manage to surmount these difficulties and ended up having a fun time in Kuwait, making great friends, some of whom I’m still in touch with, and, last but not least, learning English so well that later on in life I decided to become a language teacher. I graduated from Budapest University as a teacher of English and French and, after spendig about a year in Paris as an au pair, I settled down to teaching both languages at several universities and colleges in my beloved home city, Budapest. I also got married and had four children in a row, which was the most wonderful experience in my life.
It was at this point that I first came into contact with the Silva Method. My brother, László, was going through a very difficult period in his life, and my sister, Elizabeth, who lives in Australia, sent him a book on the Silva Method to help him out and give him hope, even though she herself found the message of the book rather difficult to believe, to say the least. However, having an open mind and really wanting to help my brother, she decided to send the book anyway. László only managed to read the first few pages before flinging it down himself, also in disbelief.
But he, too, was of an open mind, so he asked me to go through it first, and tell him if it was worth reading. I was at home with my kids, having a ball and all the time in the world to read at my pleasure, ( ;P ) while other people were busy making a living, so I read the whole book in practically one go, and was flabbergasted. I told László that if this was true, our whole concept of the world and ourselves within this world could be changed for the better. There was, of course, the word ’if’… I hadn’t become an unsuspecting believer overnight, either. So László decided to take the course, and borrowed money to travel to Geneva, which was the closest city to Budapest that offered the course. (László worked as a physician, and doctors weren’t particularly well paid in Hungary at that time. Neither are they well paid today, unfortunately…) He came back totally overblown. All he could think of was how this wonderful new knowledge and experience could be passed on to others. He translated the book and published it, again taking out a loan. He was prepared to take practically any kind of risk just to get the good news out to as many people as possible.
Naturally, marketing was a key issue. At that time, for a short period (this was right after the system change of 1990) it was allowed to sell your own products in the street from your own car without any legal procedures. So László started doing that, but not many people stopped to look at the books, let alone buy one. How was he supposed to reach the public? What ideas could you come up with in such a situation…? Not many, I suppose.
But László didn’t give up. Using the very methods he was advocating, he spent a lot of time programming for a good solution, and the idea of writing a letter to the host of one of the most popular TV shows came up. Luckily (could it have been just sheer luck?) he answered and said that he would be happy to interview László. The show was an immense success. The morning following the night it was aired, László started selling his book again, and in next to no time there were long rows queueing up. Everybody wanted the book. People were talking about it in the street. I personally overheard quite a few conversations about it on buses and trams. It was a glorious period, and the enthusiasm hasn’t really died down ever since.
There are 210 000 Silva graduates at present, and there are also about 30 000 children who have completed the children’s course in Hungary. Graduates are sending us success stories by the dozen daily, some being so surprising, that László decided some of them could only be read by Silva graduates, because if people who haven’t completed the course read them,they would definitely think we had gone out of our minds. Which we have, actually, but in a different sense…
This is the kind of enthusiasm, joy and success I would like to share with you. I hope you will enjoy taking the course just as much I enjoy giving it.
