David Elliot is an Avatar master and a cancer survivor. He lives in a self-built house in the bush in New Zealand with his wife Stephanie, two daughters and a cat.
David became interested in self-development in his twenties while working in a spiritual retreat centre. In 2001 he became a licensed Avatar master and began delivering the Avatar course in New Zealand and Australia; coaching participants to become self-aware and realising themselves as the source of their life and life conditions.
Following a seizure in 2007 David was diagnoses with a malignant brain cancer, (glioma multiforme blastoma grade 4) and was told by his doctor that he had only a 10% chance of living for two years. Because of his training in Avatar David was able to realise that this prognosis was just a medical viewpoint and that he didn’t necessarily need to believe what he was being told, further, he realised that it would be very deleterious to his health to believe his doctor’s prediction.
‘You Don’t Have to Die When Your Doctor Says’ is the result of David’s decision to become a cancer survivor instead of a cancer victim.
