The Beginning of a Legacy
In 1971, June took the self-help course, “Silva Mind Control.” This was one of the very first programs that ushered in the “New Age” – a period when meditation became a popular tool for mental focus, enhanced self-image and greater productivity.
June eventually made the decision to leave her career in television to become a Silva instructor in New York City.
In 1972, Jim was sent as a salesman to the top architectural firms and Fortune 500 companies in New York City. Unfulfilled in the corporate environment, Jim’s love of discovery led him to a Silva seminar presented by June in 1976. Their meeting was the beginning of a lifelong relationship.
Within hours of starting her course, Jim connected with June on a higher plane of consciousness – intuitively at first, and later in shared dream experiences. Three months after meeting, June and Jim were teaching the Silva method as a team. Their dynamic and unusual presentation proved highly successful in the classroom and soon led to a husband/wife partnership as well.
Aware of the shortcomings of using only “a positive attitude to make things happen” approach, June and Jim established their own educational nonprofit organization in 1981, the Let Go & Live Institute Ltd.
An International Following
While “letting go and allowing life to happen” is not nearly as popular in the United States as “making it happen,” June and Jim’s work has attracted the participation of over 7,000 clients.
Both presented seminars to special interest groups including the United Nations, The Vietnam Veterans Association, The American Cancer society, The Archdiocese of New Jersey, The United Jewish Appeal, AIDS patients and numerous others. However, most of their seminars resonated with heterogeneous groups covering the spectrum from socialites to “outsiders,” from ADD teens to Mensa members.
The Let Go & Live Institute Ltd. is dedicated to helping people discover where their emotional habits are blocking their growth and then providing techniques to help in letting go of the blocks.
The Institute’s Board of Directors is dedicated to keeping June and Jim’s body of work alive.
