Mahalo Art Center

We host wellness centered educational programs, retreats, professional trainings and collaborative work-study opportunities. 
We serve leaders, teachers, healers, visionaries and people interested in living conscious, creative and fulfilling lives, engaged with nature as an ally. We welcome like-hearted people who work on our grounds while forwarding their own personal goals. Participants include people of varied ages and cultures.
We use ancient and modern nature-connected healing and expressive arts (including music, dance, visual arts, word arts and theater) that enhance connection with self, other, community, nature and the Great Mystery (God/good)).
Our facilities include the Mahalo Rose Encantadora sound healing temple, break-out spaces, and permaculture-inspired organic gardens, including fruit and nut trees, berry bushes, and a variety of perennial and annual herbs, vegetables, flowers, and other staples.


Topics include: Foundations of Effective Leadership, Assessment Tools, Self-Regulation Tools, Transpersonal Human Development, Dreams & the Healing Fountain of Truth, Accessing & Developing Strengths,  Creating the Future, Balancing Feminine & Masculine, Specific Issues Specific to our Time & Culture, How Gender and Sexuality Play into Wellness

Capital Campaign

With your help we have come this far in manifesting Mahalo Art Center.  While Mahalo Art Center is a peaceful and creative residential community, our staff serves hundreds of people each month in a variety of ways, out in the community and throughout the world. To continue and expand our services, we need your ongoing support. We are planning on building a gathering hall and making other needed expansions.  This is expensive work  (~$80,000) yet this will support necessary community-building that is wheelchair accessible with a kitchen, bathroom and upstairs lodging for visitors! PLEASE HELP.  Send a check to Mahalo Art Center, 972 Western Avenue, Brattleboro, VT, 05301 or call Luz Elena and come by to talk about this! Your donations to Mahalo Art Center are now tax deductible as specified by the law!!!!  Our deepest thanks go to our mother organization, the ACWC (Arts Council of Windham County), who served as our fiscal agent and cheerleader for the past several years. 

The film, below, is about some of the work of our founder, Luz Elena Morey, MA, RDT.

Beautiful 22-Minute Documentary Film About  Gathering In Gratitude


It is different - being in the woods.  Beyond the painted walls and ceilings we find a deep familiarity - home..JPG
The health of the Earth has come to depend upon the health of the human spirit, and while humanity has burgeoned numerically and attained vast powers technologically, the spiritual dimension of human life has disintegrated, resulting in a host of maladies and destructive consequences, individually and collectively. Now is the time for humanity to come together as one family and remember its source in the Eternal.
— Pir Zia Inayat Khan
This program helped me transform wounds into precious jewels.
— Grandfather Great Blue Heron, program participant
How can one not be grateful for the work Luz Elena shares with those who come to Mahalo Art Center, gathering to reconnect and refuel with an inner wisdom, theme, or life question- and then to transform it. The Gathering in Gratitude serves as a focus for this artful expression. This ongoing event feeds not only the audience and participants, but all the world!
— Teresa Savel, Early Childhod Advocate
