Psychological Assessment Tool: MARI (the Mandala Assessment Research Instrument) is an evaluation system that incorporates the use of color and mandala symbols. This tool-based therapy involves coloring a mandala and a deck of cards depicting drawn mandalas. The client is instructed by the MARI practitioner to intuitively choose cards from the deck of MARI Test Cards. MARI is an exploratory process based on Jung theory that is used to help unlock information stored in unconsciousness to bring about transformation and healing.
