Mahalo Art Center hosts innovative educational and therapeutic programs for people interested in living more conscious, fulfilling, creative and spiritually fulfilling lives connected with the great mystery of our natural world.  Mahalo Art Center provides retreats and professional trainings for leaders, teachers and healers who facilitate personal and communal wellness programs.  We also host visitors and students who would like to work on our grounds.  Mahalo Art Center programs include explorations of ancient and modern nature-connected healing and expressive arts, including visual arts, dance, theater, music and writing.  Our facilities include the Mahalo Rose sound healing temple, break-out spaces, and lovely permaculture-inspired organic gardens, including fruit and nut trees, berry bushes, and a variety of perennial and annual herbs, vegetables, flowers, and other staples.

FUNDRAISING/Friends of Mahalo Art Center

We have currently used up all our scholarship monies and still need to help folks who cannot pay for programming. The director does most of her work without pay, so paying her would be helpful. We have so many financial needs and your help is welcome.  Stay posted and we will let you know of the progress  in the wetlands, the meditation spaces outdoors, the Icosahedron shaped Moon Lounge, the central garden and circular driveway, etc. Please do donate to the scholarship fund! Send money to Mahalo Art Center, 972 Western Avenue, Brattleboro, VT, 05301. If you want to make a tax deductible contribution, this is EASY - simply contact Luz Elena  ( for details on how to do it via the Arts Council of Windham County!

Thank you for helping Mahalo Art Center founder's SERVICE MISSION TO GUATEMALA

Capital Campaign 

With your help we have come this far in manifesting Mahalo Art Center.  We serve hundreds of people each month in a variety of ways. 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! 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! Non-profit donations are possible via our fiscal agent.  Please ask about this.



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
