Board Members

Through their personal experience of transformation, each member of this board understands the importance and need of healing into consciousness, not only for individuals but for the world at large.


Rick Chehil, MD, President

Dr. Chehil is a general medical practitioner in private practice for over 20 years. He is an advocate for holistic healing within the mainstream medical establishment.

As a result of his own profound experiences while working with Mada and the Dalian Method, he became a great supported of this work. After many years of working on his personal transformation, he trained with Mada to facilitate Self-Healing Dalian Method sessions, which he then began to incorporate in his private practice.

Using the Dalian Method he is now able to address and work with the mental and emotional aspects that influence and undermine physical health. As a certified Dalian Method Facilitator, Dr. Chehil welcomes the opportunity to serve others using this new and advanced system of healing. You can contact Dr. Chehil here.


Madeleine Newkirk, Vice-President

Madeleine is an artist whose concentration is in abstract paintings and metal sculptures that evoke a sense of power and spirit. She enjoys traveling and pursuing educational experiences in awakening the human spirit. She previously considered herself a ‘self-help junky’ searching for answers predominately outside of herself by reading books, attending workshops, retreats, and yoga classes. After experiencing Eliza Mada Dalian’s work at Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, NY in 2012, she understood the truth of the statement “all the answers are already within me.” Since then she has expanded her awareness of her inner power and joy by participated in other courses offered by Mada Eliza Dalian. Madeleine feels inspired to share her experience and contribute in helping others on their healing journey into consciousness.


Kindi Gill, Treasurer

Kindi is a Chartered Accountant from the UK, with 22 years experience in General Management, Human Resources, Corporate Finance, and leadership as a Chief Executive for a private multi-site national corporation. In her early 40s she left the corporate world in search of a deeper meaning. Kindi met Mada Dalian in 2008 and feels extremely fortunate to have experienced life-changing shifts through working with Mada and the Dalian Method. Kindi has been participating in all the programs offered through the Dalian School and has been fortunate to also see a tremendous transformation in her own children who have also been working with Mada and her evolutionary method.


Jessica Gibson, Secretary

Jessica is the personal assistant to Mada Dalian and the creator of BeingSeekers.com. She has a BSc from the University of Victoria. From a young age, she was interested in human psychology, but felt unsatisfied with the level of understanding provided in that field. She was blessed to have come across the teachings of Eliza Mada Dalian in 2008. She has been participating in the programs offered through the Dalian School for Health & Consciousness since and has received invaluable training in navigating the process of personal growth and transformation.



The Dalian Foundation provides scholarships to subsidize courses, teacher trainings, and private sessions offered through the Dalian School for Health & Consciousness. The scholarships are intended for people who have a strong desire to heal into consciousness, but have limited financial resources.


We appreciate your donations and contribution to the Dalian Foundation to help provide a truly life-changing experience to your brothers and sisters on the path of healing into consciousness.
