MARI (Mandala Assessment Research Instrument)

Colleen uses the MARI system of symbols and colors to help the clients clarify core issues and identify strengths.  The client provides intuitive guidance to select from a selection of mandalas and color cards. The symbols and colors chosen provide a window into the areas of tension or attention that the unconscious is focusing on. MARI is based on Jungian symbology and forty years of work and research of Donna Kellogg.

“I had never been exposed to the MARI before I sat with Colleen. The experience was both a fun and creative exercise as well as an opportunity to process a lot of challenging stuff I had going on in my personal life. Colleen really facilitated my opening up to a new way of thinking about some specific issues I was dealing with. And the colors and shares are gorgeous – and still with me. 

― Rebecca, client

Using the MARI research, I work with clients to develop a picture of the psyche. MARI can be used as part of therapy or I can provide it as a stand-alone service for those in transition or seeking clarity. I am a trained and certified MARI practitioner.
