PRACTITIONER  – Supervised Practice

You learn everything you need to know in the MARI Intensive. You also get a wonderful and informative manual that will help you. The most important thing to do next is practice. PRACTITIONER is the level of supervised practice.

When you are at a live class, typically there is no one that you can practice on. You have to wait until you return home to begin to practice. For this reason, this level of practice is typically not included in a LIVE  training.

Because you take the ONLINE TRAINING at home, you do have people to practice with and Practitioner IS included as the next natural and final step in your on-line training.

Requirements -Administer eight (8) MARI /mandala combinations to others.
Appraise these and work with a teacher to fine tune your understanding.
