Marlise Karlin is a person just like you and me who focuses on helping people reboot their lives through The Simplicity of Stillness®. In 2002, after a series of profound experiences completely shifted Marlises perception of life, she developed simple methods so people everywhere could connect to their true essence and live life more enjoyably.
Marlises own journey was fueled by the limitations of her dramatic childhood circumstances — growing up with an alcoholic parent, becoming a teenage runaway and substance abuser and then becoming a young single mother. She later transformed herself into a successful entrepreneur and award-winning film producer.
In the midst of all her newfound success, a debilitating injury caused Marlises unrelenting curiosity to once again delve into what she had always been searching for: a deeper understanding of purpose. From the life-altering realizations offered to her through The Simplicity of Stillness, Marlise developed The Practices®, simple methods so people everywhere — regardless of culture, race or religion — could learn how to reboot themselves and live a balanced life.
Marlises authentic personality allows her to connect with people on a real level. Since 2004, she has traveled the world, sharing The Simplicity of Stillness with those who seek her guidance — from tribes in Africa to boardrooms in Europe and the Americas, from schools and hospitals to senior centers and cancer clinics.
The Practices are not connected with any religion or tradition and are inclusive of all. Countless people of all ages and across all economic backgrounds attest to the many profound benefits that Stillness Sessions® have brought to their lives. Many have experienced a sense of peace rarely felt, finding balance and wellbeing, releasing years of road blocks, and discovering what they really want out of life and how to create it.
