WHO SHOULD NOT ENROLL: Anyone who has been hospitalized for psychiatric reasons, who is seeing a psychiatrist and/or taking medication for mental health issues, or who has a history of any kind of mental or emotional breakdown. Please also see note below.

We encourage each individual's sense of confidence, as well as honoring each person's special assets and gifts in this remarkable work of past-life regression therapy. A welcome bonus is that many of our graduates form deep and long-lasting friendships with their fellow students.

CERTIFICATION: There is no recognized certification in past-life regression therapy. This class offers the most advanced training available. Upon 100% attendance and satisfactory completion of the training, participants will receive a certificate suitable for framing from the Academy for Professional Hypnosis Training.

SCHEDULE: As full participation is required for certification, with no exceptions, avoid scheduling early departure or late arrival. (Airport arrivals and departures should be scheduled for the day before and the day after class, as it takes two hours to get to Phoenix from Sedona.) We encourage participants to arrange for an additional day or two's stay in Sedona to explore or rest.

First day: 9:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.

Next four days: 9:00 a.m. - 9:00 p.m. Afternoons reserved for giving and receiving regressions in groups of two or three. (All meals on your own)

Final day: 9 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. (Do not schedule return flights earlier than 5:30  p.m. as full attendance is required for graduation. Students often go out for an informal lunch together after class ends.)

PERSONAL HEALING: This course is highly experiential. All students are expected to give and receive past-life sessions. This is transformative work, and is being held in a very sacred and transformational place. Our students often reap many important personal and spiritual benefits.

Please note, however, that the main focus is not personal therapy, but rather that of learning and further developing a skill that can be used in helping others. (Those looking solely for personal therapy or who are in need of deep healing should seek the attention of a professional rather than attend the course.)

FOR PEOPLE WHO ALREADY HAVE TRAINING IN GIVING PAST-LIFE REGRESSIONS: Occasionally we have a student who has already taken a class in how to conduct past-life regressions. Their teachers have included the greats in this field, like Brian Weiss, Dick Sutphen, Sylvia Brown, and Henry Leo Bolduc. We have immense respect for these pioneers, and are fortunate enough to have considered some of them as personal friends.

You will discover that every course is quite different. There are always new techniques to learn, and each teacher's approach is different, so you will still enjoy this class, regardless of earlier certification trainings. There is no competition in our classes, but simply room for expansion! (We also are happy to see our grads take courses from the above individuals, if they wish.)

NOTE FOR HYPNOTISTS: A number of hypnosis organizations, including the National Guild of Hypnotists, approve this course for credit for 45 hours of continuing hypnosis education.


Mary Elizabeth (Leach) Raines, Past-life Regressionist Instructor


Thank you so much for considering this course! It will open a beautiful and rich avenue of healing for you. My intent is to offer you the most complete array of tools possible so that you can facilitate effective and powerful past-life regression sessions with confidence and ease.

Although the primary purpose of the class is for you to become expertly trained so that you may offer healing and compassionate understanding to others, there is an unexpected secondary gain that my students report over and over again: They find that their own lives have become transformed in a miraculous and marvelous way when they take these classes.

I am always excited and glad at the opportunity to share knowledge and wisdom, and to prepare healers of the highest order to do this important work.

With warmth, joy, and smiles,
