The Practical Meets the Profound
“Mada’s masterpiece – In Search of the Miraculous: Healing into Consciousness – is a rare book amongst a growing pool of ‘spiritual’ or ‘new age’ publications. Mada has clearly written her book with a determination to offer practical guidance to people navigating the spiritual journey. Miraculously, the practical is beautifully wed to the profound throughout this cleanly organized and poignant book. Compassionately, Mada takes the reader step-by-step through every aspect of the soul’s journey; offering priceless guidance for every stage. For example, she counters commonly held, derogatory views of the ‘ego’ through her detailed description of the role of the ego and the stages of its development and healing. I have never read a more useful spiritual book in my life! This book is not just about savouring ideas, it’s about delving into action. And not wild, desperate or random action; deliberate action; informed and encouraged by a truly greater spiritual teacher; a mystic with a vision for a new humanity. Thank you Mada Eliza Dalian, you are a beacon of consciousness!” ~ Amazon Review from “kidsread”
A Sparkling Jewel
“For those who seek enlightenment, this book is a sparkling jewel. Bursting with specific exercises and extraordinary meditations to help heal individual blockages, the book is supremely practical. I found it to be both a thought-provoking mind feast and a step-by-step roadmap to healing. Eliza Mada Dalian belongs right alongside Eckhart Tolle and Byron Katie as a master teacher. I will use her book for a long time to come.”
~ L. Elstrom Ashville,NC
“There are many books that I get across my desk, and many of them are amazing, but every once in a while I get a book that is extraordinary, and In Search of the Miraculous: Healing into Consciousness is one of those books… There is going to come a day when we are not going to talk about healing as miraculous. Though we are not there yet, thanks to the work of Mada Eliza Dalian, her book, and her healing method that day will come much quicker!”

A Beautiful Guide to Awakening
“This book is a beautiful guide to awakening to your higher consciousness. Eliza Mada Dalian explains in a beautiful way what awakening/ enlightenment means and by describing her own awakening one gets a really rare view into the state of an awakened being. Never have I read before such a detailed description of what self-realization means, including all the emotions and thoughts etc. The beautiful meditations can be a guide to start the inner journey to healing into consciousness. I love this book! thank you, Mada!”

A Beacon of Transformation
“A timely and profoundly helpful book for anyone who is ready to transform their life. Reading the book is a meditation and a practice unto itself. I repeatedly experienced a deep vastness and silence that the words seemed to effortlessly float upon.The book is compassionately written with a deep reverence for that which cannot be expressed and yet powerfully points our awareness to it. I found myself looking forward to sitting down with the book every day and enjoying the centering effect it had on me. Mada’s telling of her story through her many lives is most inspirational. Reading it gave me understanding, hope, and encouragement for my own journey. It is exciting to read something that is such a beacon of transformation, healing, and consciousness.”
~ Jennifer Anderson Mental Health Worker
“I found Mada’s book like a precious mini-encyclopedia. Everyone ranging from a newbie to an advanced person on his/her journey to consciousness can find wealth of information and get some real insight. I always prefer books which give you practical exercises to overcome your personal problems. I think Mada had done a great job in this respect by providing various, easy-to-apply techniques. The knowledge provided throughout the book is VERY original as well as realistic since it does not resemble any other book falling under the same category. I really enjoy the format of the book; it is written in a way that it may relate to anyone who is on their search of their own truth. I wonder how she was able to explain such complicated, hard-to-grasp concepts in such a plain way! Also I think she is very talented artist in using her words. She speaks very plain yet very thorough/precise- it is really hard to miss anything, she clarifies her concepts so well. I like the Q&A section at the end of the chapters which really complements the important knowledge explained previously…I am quite sure it would be one of my reference books even in a decade’s time because as my consciousness would expand I would start to notice concepts and facts that I overlook beforehand or I would just gain deeper insights with each rereading! …Hope to see your book translated into Turkish too!”
~ Sibel Gunduz Artists
“After listening to a podcast of an interview with the author I felt moved to order this book. I’ve worked as a clinical social worker and in publishing mainstream books…Dalian’s “against the grain” notions of how the ego needs to be strengthened in order, paradoxically, to be put aside and her advocacy of saying negative thoughts aloud before an out breath as opposed to repeating mantra-like positive affirmations that do not address unconscious thought forms in the body reflected a spiritual traveler who can think outside the box. The book is outstanding for it’s precision, depth, ease, density of information, and uniqueness of format. Dalian leaves her personal odyssey for the ending chapters which showed spiritual humility and works well for those who tend to interpret information in terms of the sender. I’m glad to own the book and will recommend it to others because I think it will age very well will resonate with many.”
~ Elise Dennis New York
Great and Quick Guidance
“Thank you very much for your book in Russian language. I have found it in the supermarket. I was passing by the shelf with books and my eyes stopped on your book. I could not even expect that it will be so great and quick guidance to myself. It helps me at the same time to stay in my heart, see moving thoughts and emotions, to fill silence inside and perceive the existence as it is. Before reading your book I went the same way but slowly. Now it’s easier than before to have fun when I see the trouble and negative feelings. I knew that when I have problems and obstacles it teach me.”
~ Olga Mukhacheva
Mada is a Powerful Force for Transformation
“l stumbled upon Mada’s book at Chapters. I knew instinctively I had to read it! When I opened the book and began reading, I cried. Something inside me knew I was getting close to home and had found a long lost friend; another guide on my journey. Mada and this amazing book was my next step in anchoring me deeper into my true self. I did my first session with Mada less than a week later over the phone, as we both live on opposite coasts. I would have flown there to meet with her if I had to. Her insight into my blocks was monumental as was the technique she used to release these blocks. I have released a lifetime of patterns that no longer serve me. Her gentleness, humor and lightness instantly put me at ease. Mada is a powerful force for transformation. I highly recommend working with her or reading her book.”
~ Patricia H.
Going Beyond the Superficial
“This book seems to speak the most to those that have been searching for along time and have tried many things. Going beyond the superficial band-aid approach you often see in the self-help industry and spiritual/religious practices, this book is an in-depth practical guide for understanding the human experience and your own unique journey. I feel the author wants to trigger your own individual desire for truth and everything in this book comes from her direct experience.
Before I found this book I had been reading and learning about the ego and how the mind creates stories which creates our reality. I tried really hard to not be in my ego and would get glimpses of living life more directly instead of my stories. But it seemed really hard and I couldn’t sustain it, I kept thinking I must be addicted to my mind and I wondered how to deal with this. When I found Mada’s book it gave me the answer of why I was struggling, and so many other questions that other teachers couldn’t help me with.
It was a great relief to stop struggling against myself and instead discover more about myself.
I feel there is a whole continuum on the journey and a lot of people talk from the end of it, enlightenment and oneness and all that. But there is a process on the way and for me it didn’t help me to try to be like those teachers, I had to understand where I was in order to help myself.”
~ Lila A Haris, Dalian Method Facilitator
Surprisingly Down to Earth
“Mada Dalian’s energy is powerful, sparkling, cool, and compassionate. When her book first arrived in the mail, though, I didn’t know that. I stared at the cover of “In Search of the Miraculous.” It proclaimed that it was the recipient of seven book awards. Deepak Chopra’s testimonial was on the cover. As attracted as I am to Buddhist thinking, I wondered: “What could this woman have possibly written that’s new? Hasn’t it all been said before?” And in my ignorance, I asked, “Just who is Mada Dalian?”
I put the book aside for a few days to let my mind settle down. I wanted to connect with her at an unspoken, deeper level. And what I found in meditation was this calm, broad river of wisdom. Embodied in this woman, Mada Dalian. A river that was moving through space and time–to help currently incarnated people figure out what life is all about. To teach people how to take the hard road to their own growth and enlightenment.
I don’t have a lot of faith in people who tell us simply to “rise above” our experiences on this planet–people who won’t get their feet wet or their hands dirty. Mada Dalian, however, is willing to do both. She speaks of the importance of being an observer in our lives–of detaching ourselves from what keeps us reincarnating over and over. At the same time, she speaks of being a full participant in life, as well–of feeling our feelings, rather than denying them. In other words, we are to know love and joy–and pain and suffering. In fact, we cannot know love and joy without having experienced pain and suffering. But, she says, we do not have to continue sleepwalking through our days. Mada Dalian teaches practical skills to help us open our eyes, our minds, our hearts, and connect to Spirit.”

Insightful, Inspirational, and Practical
“As one can easily see from my profile, for many years I have been drawn to read books related to spirituality and personal growth. I’ve always found that the ideal book for me to read at a particular time has come across my path at precisely that time. I definitely found this to be the case with “In Search of the Miraculous” as well. This truly is a wonderful book, as it delves deeply into the elusive subject of “enlightenment” in extensive detail, uniquely combining insightful, inspiring, and thought-provoking content with practical “how-to” suggestions.
The author authentically shares her life experiences and philosophy without coming across as some guru who has it all figured out. The book is very well-written and smartly organized, and makes for very interesting reading. It is ideally suited for people who have been on the path of spiritual growth for many years, as there are some intensive metaphysical concepts addressed within it that may be a bit too far out on the curve for newcomers to that path. If you are an experienced “seeker,” I feel very confident that you”ll find solid value in this work. Here’s one of my favorite passages from it:
“Your fear is a blessing. It is giving you an opportunity to disidentify from your mind and learn to trust the unknown. The mind can never trust or surrender. Trust always happens through intelligence and consciousness. The mind always asks for guarantees, but life never offers any. Life unfolds moment to moment, and each moment arises as a result of the moment that was surrendered before it. Life is a surprise that always arises out of the unknown. You can either embrace the unknown and live it fully and joyously, or resist it and live in pain, fear, and struggle.”
~ Jeff Maziarek, Author of Codi’s Journey
Exactly What I was Looking for
“I had read “A New Earth, Awaken to Life’s Purpose” by Eckhardt Tolle 6 years ago and it profoundly changed my life. After that, I started to wonder if there was more out there and what is next. Am I just on the cusp of it? A friend introduced me to Mada and her online course which included reading this book. It was exactly what I was looking for. The next level of my spiritual journey and practical applications of meditation. Mada’s website has articles on how to do the active meditations that goes with the CD’s she recommends which you can download from Itunes. I highly recommend this book to anybody that is looking for the next step of their spiritual journey.”
~ Jane Thorne
“I found this book to explain ego development and the spiritual journey in such a complete and yet simple way. I love that someone is finally talking about the usefulness of the ego on the spiritual journey, what a relief! From a serious spiritual seeker to someone contemplating the path, all will gain from this book.”
~ K. Roth, Clinical Psychologist
A Must Read!
“For those of us striving for personal fulfillment and reaching the point of truly living in the moment, I find this book guides and gives you the tools to reach a state of “being”. A must read for all who are interested in personal growth.”
