Mahalo Art Center

Untitled LOGO.jpg

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.

FRIDAY FEB. 21st 7pm Fundraiser to Support the 41 Day 2015 NPT Peace Walk for a Nuclear Free Future

Participants will be walking, praying and visiting some of the most dangerous nuclear 'hot spots' in our country with the intention of transforming consciousness and ending nuclear weapon proliferation. In the words of a peace walker who will be present at this Friday’s fundraiser, “We are carrying a prayer and a pledge in keeping with the wisdom of Indigenous people. We are creating a sustainable society where we are living in harmony with Mother Earth.”    
The fundraiser is this Friday Feb. 20th at Mahalo Art Center, behind 974 Western Ave.: Pot luck from 5:30 - 6:30 and musical performance from 7 - 9pm with Kathleen Sims, Luz Elena Morey, Jed Blume and others!
Suggested Donation: $20. All proceeds go to the Peace Walk.
The walk begins in San Francisco and ends with prayers and fasting at the United Nations in New York City, where the NPT (Non-Proliferation Treaty) Review Conference is happening. More information about the peace walk is at:
Walkers will pray at Lawrence Livermore Nuclear Lab, which focuses on innovative weapon design; Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Plant, which stands on sacred Chumash sites; Nevada Test Site, the largest nuclear test site on the globe; Big Mountain, where Navajo people have been forcibly removed from their homes; West Valley, where radioactive nuclear waste has been buried and is threatening the lives and land of the Seneca Nation; Knolls Atomic Power Laboratory, near Albany, NY, where scientists are conducting research & development for the production of nuclear submarines, and Indian Point Power Plant, an aging nuclear reactor site less than 50 miles from Manhattan.
You can help in many ways:
Please come to the benefit this Friday or send checks to Jun Yasuda at Grafton Peace Pagoda87 Crandall Rd. Petersburg, NY 12138.  Any and all support for the peace walk is welcome.  For more information contact 802-451-9495.

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.

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
