An Interview: Spiritual Teacher Marlise Karlin ‘The Simplicity of Stillness’

Marlise Karlin

Have you ever met someone who really took your breath away because of their incredible calmness and positivity? I recently spoke with Marlise Karlin , a spiritual teacher who offers people connection to their essence, through a technique she has termedThe Simplicity of Stillness’. This  offers simple methods that are both ‘practical’ and ‘profound’. These methods can be used by people everywhere, regardless of culture, race or religion, to bring greater awareness into their daily lives.

A mixed approach that offers a new take on our spiritual development


Listen to the audio here:


Marlise categorizes her techniques in two ways. She offers Stillness Sessions which tackle the profound, and The Practices, which focus on the practical side of our spiritual development.

Stillness Sessions are an experiential form of teaching designed to move people beyond the limitations and agitations of the mind and into their natural state of being. These journeys are accompanied by music and words infused with the profound energy and vibration of Stillness. The Practices are an applied form of spiritual teaching designed to help people practically integrate higher states of conscious into their daily lives.

Learning more about the person behind the philosophy

By interviewing Marlise, I got to find out much more about the person behind the product, and gained a great overview of who she is and what she does.

A brief biography of Marlise Karlin…

Marlise’s own spiritual journey was fueled by the limitations of her dramatic childhood circumstances – growing up with an alcoholic parent, becoming a teenage runaway, substance abuser and then a young single mother.

She later transformed herself into a successful entrepreneur and award-winning film producer. In 2001, a series of profound experiences completely shifted Marlise’s perception of life forever.

After a period of integration, Marlise was then guided to start sharing The Simplicity of Stillness with the world. Identified by SheKnows.com as an inner-peace expert, Marlise is also an ongoing contributor to The Huffington Post and Malika Chopra’s Intent.com Wellness blog.

Marlise is currently offering Stillness Programs and Retreats around the world, and is also writing her first book to further share what has been given to her.
