MEET MARIE-ELIZABETH MALI
Few things in life are more bewitching and maddening than desire. At its core, desire has the potential to wake us up to who we are. It is so potent that religions have sought to contain and control it for fear of what it might do if given full expression.
It can be challenging to hear and act on our desires in the face of conditioning. It has taken years of practice for me to hear my desires and act on them in every area of life. I coach individuals and couples who want to live with authenticity, power, and freedom. I bring listening, discernment, and approval to my clients as I encourage them to excavate their desires and remove the blocks that have stood in their way. I love to watch people come alive as they discover the power of living in alignment with who they truly are.

Muriel Rukeyser said, “Breathe-in experience, breathe-out poetry.” I write poetry because it’s the most distilled and direct way I know to bring my experiences into words with an emotional impact. I come to poetry to connect with myself and others, with the whole spectrum of a well-lived life. I have books and several sample poems available, as well as links to online publications in which other poems have appeared.

When I take photos and videos underwater, I am also looking for connection. Through these images, I attempt to convey the personalities of the creatures I meet, as well as the incredible range of shapes and colors that exist in the underwater world. Jacques Ives Cousteau said, “We protect what we love.” Not a day goes by when I’m diving that I don’t think about how rapidly the planet is changing, how ephemeral the environment and creatures I love.
