Hi There!

I’m Marlise Karlin

Generational Trauma Expert. Mental Health Activist. Author. Pioneering Researcher. My passion is to empower you to heal and live a life you truly love.

Founder SOSmethod & NEXTjourney, lover of travel, art, and fabulous food.

Welcome to my home, production office, garden, and research lab.


It was the best of times.  I had produced an Independent Spirit award-winning film in Hollywood, served globally as an NGO International Director and Break the Cycle National Director, 

Before then, my life was anything but smooth sailing. 

Growing up with an abusive alcoholic father caused me to become a teen runaway and develop stress-related illnesses. This sparked my passion to uncover new solutions for stress, health, and empowerment.

I didn’t want difficulties to control my destiny, so I set out on a journey of discovery. Over the next 25 years, I studied alongside experts from diverse fields: masters of meditation in India, holistic experts in Japan, and leading Western scientists.

Life got better. But with success came more stress, and so did unhappiness, anxiety, and illness. Clearly my quest for life-long wellness and empowerment was not complete.


My exploration into the latest groundbreaking research in science plus preeminent holistic traditions led to a mind-blowing discovery. While we are all born with Generational Trauma, we also have a Genetic Promise™ .

This hidden potential completely transformed my life. As it began clearing my ‘genetic junk’, I became happier, healthier, and more empowered.

It was the solution I was searching for.

So, I developed SOSmethod and traveled for more than 2 decades, documenting research with diverse populations, and evolving the process.

And now with NEXTjourney’s programs and the SOS Method companion app – you can become Free of your Genetic Pain.

The life-altering impact is truly staggering, watch these stories of how you’ll develop positive habits to overcome obstacles, improve mental acuity to make career changes, and build more caring relationships. I am so excited for you to experience the new future that awaits you. With Great Love, ~m

Circumstances don’t have to direct your life.
You can turn challenges into adventures!




I’m actually not one who sits still for very long. As a mental health activist, author, speaker, CEO & Founder, I’ve toured extensively across Europe, Australia, Africa, Asia, India, Canada, and the good old USA.

You’ll find me in all kinds of places besides temples and mountain tops. I’ve trained business professionals with depression, victims of sexual abuse, traumatized veterans with PTSD, and LGBTQ kids suffering from anxiety.

From travel on foot across wilderness to flying in cargo planes, sleeping in dirt floor huts, or simply under a starry sky…  I love connecting with people around the globe!  I also love to explore the finer things life has to offer – fabulous cuisine, uniques cultures, vibrant art and architecture.
