"When we speak we are afraid our words will not be heard or welcomed. But when we are silent, we are still afraid. So it is better to speak."

- Audre Lorde

I’m excited to share that this fall I will begin blogging as the Sexy Witch for American Witch, with a host of talented folks, and that my coaching practice has five open spots! I’m offering free exploratory sessions to clarify what you want to work on and if we’d be a good fit. Email me for details at mem at memali dot com. My bio:

Marie-Elizabeth Mali’s witchy superpower is her laser-like sensitivity to what goes on under the surface. She assists her coaching clients to become more self-aware and have freedom and power in every area of life, especially in relationships and sex. She teaches Orgasmic Meditation (OM), a partnered practice that deepens people’s connection to their desires and sexuality, and is a OneTaste Coach-In-Training. The OneTaste coaching method applies the principles of OM to every area of life and complements and expands on her prior background as a life coach and health practitioner. Marie-Elizabeth is also a published poet and underwater photographer who has a thing for sharks.


"Life will give you whatever experience is most helpful for the evolution of your consciousness. How do you know this is the experience you need? Because this is the experience you are having at this moment."

- Eckhart Tolle

"Para mi corazón basta tu pecho. Para tu libertad bastan mis alas. Desde mi boca llegara hasta el cielo lo que estaba dormido sobre tu alma."

- Pablo Neruda

"Every time you hear the voice and say it, you gain power. Every time you don’t say it you abandon yourself. And after abandoning yourself over and over again, you have no idea who you are and you have no power."

- Yia Vang

"Our plans miscarry because they have no aim. When you don’t know what harbor you’re aiming for, no wind is the right wind."

- Seneca

"The beginning of love is the will to let those we love be perfectly themselves, the resolution not to twist them to fit our own image. If in loving them we do not love what they are, but only their potential likeness to ourselves, then we do not love them: we only love the reflection of ourselves we find in them"

- Thomas Merton

"Power is just power. It’s coming through you but it’s not yours. Power organically burns out identity. The thing you think is you will actually destroy you."

- Nicole Daedone

Another favorite poem. Enjoy.

Love after Love 

The time will come 
when, with elation 
you will greet yourself arriving 
at your own door, in your own mirror 
and each will smile at the other’s welcome, 

and say, sit here. Eat. 
You will love again the stranger who was your self. 
Give wine. Give bread. Give back your heart 
to itself, to the stranger who has loved you 

all your life, whom you ignored 
for another, who knows you by heart. 
Take down the love letters from the bookshelf, 

the photographs, the desperate notes, 
peel your own image from the mirror. 
Sit. Feast on your life.

—Derek Walcott
