(Mandala Assessment
Research Instrument

Taking the MARI
Card Test

You begin by choosing
cards from a series of
stylized mandalas (circle
drawings) and pairing
them with various colors.
Sometimes you will draw
your own mandala.  

The cards are placed on
the mandala wheel, and
Dalena will engage you in
discussion and
interpretation of the
mandalas based on many
years of research by
Joan Kellogg.

You also receive
suggestions for
addressing your issues
and beginning the
change process.

There is no art/drawing
experience necessary.
