Once a teen runaway on drugs, Marlise went on to become International Director of an NGO, produced an Independent Spirit Award-winning film, and was a National Director for Break the Cycle.

This led to a completely different approach to meditation, which includes Discovery Programs, Life Tools, and a unique formula for Meditation that fuses music, tones, and words  and works in only 5 minutes.
