Eric Mader was born in Cleveland, Ohio and lived there until he graduated from college in 1973. After college he spent two years in Cambridge, Massachusetts and then moved to southern California. Eric had long felt that something was missing in his life and in California he began to search for that missing element by taking meditation classes and attending trance channeling events. In 1988 he moved to the San Francisco Bay Area, where he discovered the Berkeley Psychic Institute in 1992. As soon as he walked in the door, Eric knew that he'd finally found what he'd been looking for and began taking classes as quickly as he could. He took every class that he could find.
To his great surprise, Eric found that he really loved teaching. He taught beginning meditation and healing classes as well as classes for the graduates of the Clairvoyant Training Program. After taking the Oracle Trance Medium Training Program, Eric took the Trance Medium Teachers Program and then started teaching others how to develop their Trance Medium ability.
In 2005 Eric and his wife moved to the Big Island of Hawai'i where they live on their organic Kona Coffee Farm: Honu Kula Coffee Farm. Eric continues to read, heal and do trance medium work.
