Metta Musings by Deb Langhans: Introducing MARI®
When was the last time you had an authentic heart-to-heart with yourself, a conversation that accessed truth & reality below the surface of your everyday, keep-up-appearances life?
If you’re like most people in our culture, that kind of deep and honest communication doesn’t take place very often--We’re too afraid of learning stuff about ourselves that’s difficult, discouraging, even depressing. But what if you could access a tool that helped reveal your inner truth in a way that highlighted what’s positive and possible… a system that left you feeling encouraged about who you truly are and can be? Wouldn’t that represent a tremendous gift you could give yourself and your loved ones?
Introducing MARI®: Mandala Assessment Research Instrument--the most wholistic (whole-person), creative and comprehensive psychological assessment tool on the planet! MARI® taps both your right and left-brain and is the only instrument that includes all four functions of consciousness: thinking, feeling, sensing and intuiting—as well as spirituality.
How does it do this? By combining life cycle stages, symbols, colors and a mandala drawing of your own creation to reveal your inner truth and reality. It invites your psyche—both your conscious and unconscious mind—to communicate what’s really going on in your most authentic being; and that information can include your past, present and even aspects of your future.
Many on this island know me through my business, Journeys to Healing, and as a wholistic life coach specializing in grief recovery, mindfulness coaching and Inner Journey Collage© workshops. Recently, I became a Certified MARI® Practitioner; actually, only the third in Washington State. Over the months of intense study and conducting close to two dozen MARI® assessments, I can confidently attest to this instrument being amazingly insightful and inspirational!
Here’s how some of my clients described their MARI® experience:
“I’ve had therapy and bodywork over the years, and nothing quite compared to my MARI work with Deb. I came away with a deeper understanding of myself and new ways to move forward in my life. I would highly recommend this therapeutic tool to anyone interested in breaking free of the mind and discovering their true self.”
“Deb is not only knowledgeable and passionate about sharing MARI. She offers the gift of deep, full listening. She is kind, patient and confident, and her wisdom and natural intuition help clarify the MARI findings to illuminate lifelong patterns and past and present issues.”
“I was relieved to learn that MARI required no artistic talent! When Deb and I discussed the meanings behind all the symbols and colors I chose, I was surprised by how accurate it all described me! Deb was calming and very reassuring and her reading caused me to reflect on my past, present and future choices. I would certainly recommend it!”
“What an eye opener! As my assessment unfolded, I was at once informed, reinforced, surprised and validated. Deb’s insightful assessment helped me learn more about who’s really “driving my bus!”
“I found the whole MARI® experience fascinating, insightful, fertile, fun, enriching, expansive and thought provoking—at the time and in the days and weeks following. I look forward to doing this again…”
“The MARI® process creates a context for looking deeply into one’s psyche…I enjoyed the two virtual sessions immensely and will continue to use the information I learned to explore the excavated aspects of my subconscious. I believe MARI provides a path for growth in a very positive way and I highly recommend Deb--she is a gifted, caring and skilled teacher whose talents coalesce beautifully through MARI.”

Renowned Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung believed the mandala was the most accurate representation of the psyche and the ultimate tool for exploring it.
