MARI stands for Mandala Assessment Research Instrument. MARI is the newest and most comprehensive psychological tool for insight-based counseling. It is based on the Jungian concepts of the unconscious and Jung’s personal use of the Mandala. MARI uses symbols, colors, and developmental stages and reveals a visual picture for the clients of their own psyches. MARI allows for rapid insights and transformations that improve clinical progress and outcomes.
