Mari is an amazingly effective, accurate, and fun assessment and insight tool.  It  includes 39 symbol cards representing 13 developmental (& cyclical) stages in life along with 45 color cards.  A set of symbols and colors are chosen by the client and an interpretation of the combination reflects and provides insights into their current mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual states.  Like a “snapshot into the soul” the reading is dynamic over time depending on a person’s presenting life situation and on how he/she percieves and deals with the situation.   Developed, researched and validated by Joan Kellogg and inspired by the work of Carl Jung, the MARI system was developed from studying Mandala circle art across many cultures.


mandala1Sue likes to ask Clients to create a mandala of their own after selecting the cards for the Mari Reading.
