LEARN TO TRANSCEND YOUR MIND INTO PRESENCE IN THE NOW!
Discourse & Demonstration with an award-winning author, spiritual teacher, and internationally acclaimed master healer Eliza MADA Dalian.
Imagine how your life could be if you were able to:
• Discover a fresh new perspective on healing and awakening that can propel your being's healing journey into greater freedom and consciousness.
• Ask questions and receive practical guidance for your own individual journey from an enlightened being.
• shows how easy it is to remove these blocks permanently and ground these changes to enjoy a life free of pain, with heightened consciousness.
SPEAKER: Eliza MADA Dalian is a rare combination of an award-winning author, self-realized mystic, spiritual teacher, and internationally acclaimed master healer. She brings a leading edge perspective on healing and enlightenment, offering clarity, guidance, and major transformation in this time of profound shift in global consciousness. Affectionately known as MADA, a name she was initiated by, she began her personal quest for enlightenment at age twenty-four. After years of focused meditation practice and several profound spiritual experiences, she was blessed with an ultimate awakening experience at age 33. This life-altering experience took her some years to integrate into the ordinary world of day-to-day life, and in 1996 she developed a powerful new healing method (DHM) deemed by many as a method ahead of its time. Through this simple yet profound method she offers a practical solution for spontaneous healing and transformation of consciousness for individuals, society, and the planet. MADA travels internationally, offering workshops, healing sessions, and retreats, to individuals, children, and organizations. She lives in Vancouver, BC Canada.

Why Search for Enlightenment?
Jerry Gin , Director and Co-Chairman, FMBR
As one reaches the stage of enlightenment, one achieves knowingness about existence, consciousness, the Absolute and the nature of the human condition. However, the journey toward enlightenment itself has its own rewards. If one embarks upon this quest, one must start stripping away the many veils that life has put upon us. We have an animal nature that was needed for survival, but does not necessarily serve us well as we learn to live within a society and learn to relate to others and the environment. We have angers, judgments, fears, hatreds and many conflicting emotions. We have parents that influenced us in various ways - for better or for worse. We have societies which impose rules, whether they are right or wrong for us. We have religions that impose their beliefs and rules. We all search for happiness, often in the wrong places, which often leads to frustrations, addictions, broken relationships, and eventually unhappiness.
The journey toward enlightenment requires one to look within oneself and to look for the truth. In doing so, one, out of necessity, strips away falsehoods that imprison us. These are often the positions that we have taken, not out of truth but out of emotions or fears that have been poured into us from our animal instincts, parents, religions, societal rules or governments. In the enlightenment process, one begins to understand the true nature of the Self/Consciousness - that one is not the ego/mind that responds to all of the emotions/fears and that takes so many positions that lead to unhappiness, but that one is the Witness and Consciousness that is eternal. As we take the journey toward enlightenment, we gradually strip away the many false premises which make us unhappy. We learn to live a life of truth and we strip away the many causes that make us unhappy. As we take the journey, one comes to an understanding of unconditional love, truth, compassion, gratitude and forgiveness. We then begin to live a life according to those principles. These are all very good reasons to take the steps toward consciousness and enlightenment.
I have learned and experienced much on this subject, especially from the books and teachings of David Hawkins (Power vs. Force, Eye and I) and Eliza MADA Dalian ( In Search of the Miraculous : Healing into Consciousness). Consciousness is MADA's term for enlightenment; it is a great term for it teaches us to be in a state of consciousness, of knowing the truth, and not be at the mercy of the ego/mind.
