My sister, Mary Elizabeth Raines, a certified hypnotist and instructor for the National Guild of Hypnotists, has her own business, Laughing Cherub Unlimited in Weyauwega, Wisconsin. She formerly practiced in Santa Monica and Hollywood, where she lived in a charming Bohemian cottage once occupied by Jack London.
As a Reiki Master as well as charter member of the International Federation of Hypnotists, she explains her role is simply that of being a vessel or facilitator, and her deepest intention is to offer opportunities for individuals to experience their healing in the best way for them. She gives delightful stage performances as The Laughing Lady of Light. In private therapy, she specializes in emotional release techniques and past life regressions.
My sister is also an author (novels, filmscripts, musicals) and journalist, a musician (a pianist who studied at New England Conservatory of Music), an actress/director, and an award-winning filmmaker. She has been a professional background actor (or "extra") in around 25 TV programs and 4 films, including being a "regular" on The West Wing where she has played a reporter.
In Novmber, 1999, Mary Elizabeth took a trip to Egypt with a group of meditators; she wrote an extremely observant, poignant, humorous account of her experiences, ME 'n' Egypt.
