Celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Intensives held at Jericho Hill Centre!
Yes, it will be 20 years since I started offering 21, then 10 day intensives in Vancouver, Canada at the beautiful Jericho Hill Centre. I never knew it will last so long and will continue happening year after year!
Come, participate, celebrate, and transform during this special event!
The Healing into Consciousness Intensive is designed by Mada as an urban retreat, so you don’t even need to miss time off work if you are living in Vancouver. If you are coming from another city, consider this as a special vacation and a retreat combo and enjoy this beautiful city!
We can avoid unnecessary suffering, and move through the stages of our development faster, if we embrace every opportunity to know our true Self.
Using the Osho Dynamic meditation each morning along with Mada’s individual guidance on what to focus on during the meditation is a unique and powerful combination. In a short time you can accomplish more through this 10 day intensive than what you would achieve through years of therapy. You will also be able to learn how to quickly dis-identify from your mind and emotions and experience your inner stillness – something that usually takes years of silent sitting meditation practice.
If you are ready for a quantum leap the Healing into Consciousness Intensive will create a 180 degree shift in your perception of yourself and the world. You will:
• Detoxify your body from repressed negative thoughts and emotions
• Transform your psychological and emotional wounds
• Break through self-imposed and collective conditionings
• Transform stress, loneliness, insecurity, and depression
• Experience the silent presence of your being
• Get in touch with your essence and life purpose
• Improve your physical health
Through the course of the intensive you will also practice with other active meditation techniques such as No-Yes, Chakra Breathing, Chakra Sounds, and Kundalini. You will have an opportunity to:
• Dance and celebrate
• Participate in group-work with other seekers
• Receive daily assignments to integrate your experience throughout the day
• Have alone time to reflect and ground your new awareness in your body
Why practice with Mada?
Mada has been teaching Osho Active Meditations and facilitating Inner Growth Workshops since 1990. Since then, she has made a profound difference in hundreds of people’s lives in their process of spiritual growth and transformation.
Having experienced her own awakening through the Osho Dynamic meditation she knows first-hand the deep wisdom and transformative power of the Osho active meditations. Mada combines her unique skill as a master healer and self-realized spiritual teacher to guide others towards their own awakening.
Like a true Zen master, Mada’s workshops and intensives create an environment of non-judgmental unconditional acceptance, allowing participants to safely expose their repressed inner darkness so it can be seen and transformed into the compassionate light of consciousness.
Mada does not use blanket answers. She works with each person according to his or her own individual needs. With her help and encouragement, it becomes easier to take risks and delve into areas where you normally might be afraid to venture on your own.
If you have the courage to risk facing your fears and transforming your ego, Mada has the strength, ability, and wisdom to help you cut through the layers of your unconsciousness and liberate your being into the health of consciousness.

Is the intensive only in the mornings from 6:30am to 8:30 am?
The hours of the intensive are indeed those early hours from 6:30am to 8am. On some days and weekends they run a bit longer. The intensive was originally created as an urban retreat so people could still carry on with their daily lives without needing to take time off work.
The morning sessions are extremely powerful and bring up a lot to the surface from your unconscious. This gives you the rest of the day to process and integrate what comes up in the morning. Mada also gives homework each day to help with this integration. People who come to the Intensive from out of town always appreciate their time in this beautiful green coastal city (Vancouver, Canada) with its many beaches and parks to have the needed quiet integration time.
Is accommodation included with the tuition?
No. You need to make separate arrangements for your accommodation. Our out-of-town participants usually have no difficulty finding very comfortable accommodations in the Kitsilano area of Vancouver where the Intensive takes place. We can also connect you with others who are coming for the Intensive if you’d like to arrange a shared accommodation or car-pooling.
Is it advisable to fast during the Intensive?
Mada always recommends a light vegetarian diet during the Intensive to help assist with this deeply cleansing process. There are people who also choose to fast during the Intensive to help detoxify their body even more. If you are planning to fast, please let us know.
