Mavis Gewant

Mavis Gewant studied the ancient techniques of yantra and silk deity painting with the late Tantric Master Shri Harish Johari, serving as his personal assistant for over twenty years. Mavis is one of the few persons in the U.S. with over two decades training in this Sacred Art who was requested to teach this knowledge by her teacher. It is her humble desire to help others through this transformational art form and she makes her painting a spiritual practice.
