MEET MARIE-ELIZABETH MALI
I’m a translator by nature. I’ve translated between three cultures since birth, Venezuelan, Swedish and American, which has helped me develop the ability to translate abstract spiritual ideas into grounded language that people understand. As a coach, I translate the deeper transformation that’s seeking to emerge through the problems my clients bring to our work together into language they can work with. Together, we build the clarity, power, and strong inner foundation they need in order to create transformative changes that stick.

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 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.
