Generational Trauma Expert. Pioneering Researcher. Mental Health Activist. Author. Founder Inner Knowing Technology (IKI)

In these uncertain and tumultuous times, Marlise Karlin is at the heart of an extraordinary movement that provides relief and life-long empowerment to people worldwide.

Since 2004 Karlin’s proprietary technology has empowered countless thousands to get peace of mind, clear past trauma, and cultivate long-lasting wellbeing.

Titled the “Inner Peace Expert” by, Marlise has been interviewed on news programs including NBC, ABC, and Fox. A sought-after public speaker, Marlise has toured extensively across the US, Canada, the UK, Europe, Africa, India, Southeast Asia, and Australia.

Marlise’s journey is a testament to the resilience of the human spirit and the boundless possibilities that arise from advancing one’s potential for healing and growth.

Marlise Karlin’s quest to discover an evidence-based holistic solution for stress, healthy living, and empowerment stems from personal trauma. As a teen, Marlise Karlin braved the unknown to escape oppression from an alcoholic, abusive father. Her path led her down dark alleys of stress-related chronic illness and substance abuse to ease the pain.

Unwilling to allow tragedy to dictate her path in life, she ventured on a 20 year adventure around the globe, studying alongside meditation masters in India, holistic experts from Japan, and Western neuroscientists. Infusing the universal principles from time-tested traditions and leading-edge science with personal experience, Marlise’s revolutionary discoveries about the mind/body connection and dormant human Potential, transformed her life.

She became a successful entrepreneur, produced an Independent Spirit Award-winning film in Hollywood, was International Director of an NGO, and served as National Director for Break the Cycle. But a major injury put her back on track to creating the innovative Inner Knowing Technology.

In the early 2000s, Marlise initiated a research project that would set her on a path akin to the legendary Jane Goodall, who studied primates in Africa. Like Goodall’s groundbreaking work, Marlise began observing behavior change at a rate never-before-seen in individuals from diverse communities across six continents.

These groundbreaking cases demonstrated that dormant human Potential was within each person, what they lacked were dynamic tools to activate it until catalyzed by SOS Method Meditations, powered by IKiT, Inner Knowing Integrative Technology.

Marlise’s pioneering work caught the attention of Patricia Lanza, a former National Geographic photographer and Director of Exhibitions for the Annenberg Space for Photography. Lanza joined Marlise in 2006 to document these uncommon rapid transformations taking place around the world.

Marlise’s work mirrors principles found in renowned Eastern techniques such as Ayurveda’s Marma points, Jin Shin Jyutsu’s harmonizing, and Chinese acupuncture’s meridians that enable the body to release blockages and express itself more harmoniously. It also aligns with frontier science like neuroplasticity, epigenetics, intention science and subtle energy.

While IKiT, Inner Knowing Technology harnesses the body’s inherent capacity for adaptation it differentiates itself by offering a solo journey towards well-being, empowering individuals to ignite their own transformative energy. The power of this technology to catalyze such rapid and profound behavioral change is what truly set it apart.

Distributing Inner Knowing Technology on digital platforms through a NEXTjourney membership site and SOS Method mobile app, made it possible for countless thousands of people to access this transformative technology without Marlise’s physical presence.

Marlise’s dedication to unlocking people’s true power to clear generational trauma and improve overall wellbeing has made her a visionary leader, committed to elevating people’s Potential to thrive.

Marlise and Patricia Lanza have joined forces once again, pooling their expertise to spearhead a global movement of collaborative Legacy Partners with a mission that is nothing short of extraordinary: to positively impact the mental health of 1 Billion people.

The overarching goal of this initiative is to create compassionate communities that ripple outwards, fostering positive change on a global scale.

Even as an “Inner Peace Expert” Marlise is not one to sit still for very long. You’ll find her in all kinds of places besides temples and mountain tops.

Beginning in 2006, Marlise journeyed from Mali’s Dogon tribe to Mumbai and LA CEO’s, exploring the IKiT’s impact on diverse lives.

She’s 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… she loves connecting with people around the globe!

When I discovered that people of all cultures and ages could develop an inspired mind, emotional balance, and physical wellbeing – in less time than we ever thought possible, I realized I had to find a way to share it.
