142. Eliza Mada Dalian

It is said that out of a thousand beings who become enlightened, only one becomes a master who is able to individually guide others out of the complexities of their personal illusions. Eliza Mada Dalian is one such rare being. Affectionately known as Mada, she brings an evolutionary approach to health, personal transformation, and enlightenment. Mada is a modern day mystic, spiritual guide, internationally acclaimed master healer, seven time award-winning best-selling author of “In Search of the Miraculous: Healing into Consciousness,” creator of “No-Yes Active Meditation” CDs, and “Transcending the Fear of Death and the Unknown” guided meditation. She is also the founder of the evolutionary “Dalian Method for Health and Consciousness” – a groundbreaking self-healing method that helps you identify and permanently erase the causes of energetic blocks, fear and pain from the body’s cellular memory, transforming ailments into health and self-empowered consciousness.

Mada’s own quest for truth began at age five when she witnessed her grandfather’s death. At age twenty-four she came across the teachings of the renowned 20th century spiritual teachers George Gurdjieff and Osho. Their words deeply affected her and she left behind her training in education and architecture to devote herself to the search for truth and spiritual enlightenment. After years of meditation and introspection she was blessed with many profound experiences that led to the “ultimate” experience of enlightenment at age thirty-three.

Mada is a no-nonsense practical teacher who doesn’t encourage dependency, rather, self-responsibility. Her teaching style clearly embodies the Chinese proverb “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.” Mada unconditionally and compassionately guides individuals through their life challenges and helps to fast-forward their journey to greater health and spiritual awakening. Mada travels internationally offering private sessions, workshops, self-healing seminars and retreats to individuals, children, and organizations. She also conducts Online Courses and DM Teacher Training. For more information visit:

  1. “Firstly, I must confess that I do not enjoy intellectual banters! I have never read a single scripture in my entire life. I can only comment on my personal experiences.”

    No finer source (personal experience) to form your observations, Mada. Kudos for acknowledging that.

    The dance of conceptualization can be an intoxicating one. Clean and sober has its distinct advantages.

    “The Truth is already within each person. All that is needed is to peal away the layers of unconscious beliefs that are preventing one from recognizing their eternal being that is never born and never dies ”

    I appreciate your assignment of the primacy of authority to the individual himself/herself, instead of an external authority figure.

    And I also appreciate your observation that the only task that deserves our attention is… unveiling/unlayering that which veils us from what is already there: the Truth.

    Thanks for taking the time to respond here. Something that few interviewees do.

  2. Re: rank, title, hierarchy, level, role, duty, position, talent, skill, special powers, etc.

    This a great topic that is worth exploring deeper. Modern spirituality has the benefit of mixture of a wide variety of experiences, teachings, and traditions. But it also lacks a common structure, language, standards, and also limited regulation or oversight.

    It’s easy to turn this into some sort of black/white issue, ie – anti-guru people vs. guru is necessary people. Or some fall into my guru is better than your guru type positioning. Or some say titles are bad vs. titles are good. etc.

    I acknowledge that there are benefits of having titles, rank, hierarchy. From a strictly practical level, it’s a very efficient way of transferring information and organizing people. If everyone was at same levels, nothing would get done, or if it did, it would take 3 times longer, and results would most likely be worse.

    There’s also a lot of harm and abuse that can come from hierarchy. There are many well known stories of teachers, gurus, priests, etc. who have abused their positions of power or influence. But peers and students can equally be just as harmful. Defending someone blindly, putting too much power and faith into a projection of their teacher or guru, too much emphasis on their own rank and progress over humility.

    A lot of the harm and abuse comes from PRIDE. Taking credit for what is only allowed by divine grace. Or giving credit to a teacher or guru, it may seem a benefit from some form of transmission, but everything is allowed only under grace. Or some people are born with blessings of unique talents, awakening experiences when young, or just unusual gifts. That talent was given, by divine grace, identifying, taking credit for, and putting yourself above others due to that, is very prideful.

    Instead of pride, if grace has blessed someone with awakenings, realizations, talents, special powers, mastery, etc. The focus would be better placed on personal DUTY; to best use those gifts from divine grace, that would be a sign of gratitude, appreciation and humility.

    There’s too much focus on blaming positions or others, projecting responsibility onto the external world. There needs to be equal focus on personal responsibility and inner motivations.

    ……… Just some food for thought… 😉
