Rayne Ellycrys Benu
Director, Pacific Lighthouse Reiki
"My inner five-year-old is alive and well and asking “why…. But why…. But why?!”
Award-winning cinematographer and artist Rayne Ellycrys Benu is a nationally published festival and theatre photographer who teaches people how to let their inner light shine. Her first book "The Force of Doubt" is available on Amazon.
After a series of adventures owning an interfaith art studio, Rayne was interviewed on national morning radio as one of Vancouver’s top psychics. Reborn in Mission BC, and raised by filmmakers, orcas, and psychics Rayne has spent several years documenting them in their natural habitats.
Performing and creating art in private and public spaces since childhood, her explorations include performance art, painting demonstrations and public speaking, poetry, and teaching art and meditation.
Ms. Benu has a rich history of creating digital and multimedia artworks, corporate design, interactive media and storytelling using code and symbolic languages, abstract/meditative painting, and filmmaking (directing, editing, sound, and video).
As a Reiki master in multiple systems, with a practice of meditation and a background in psychology Rayne works with individuals from all walks of life.
She now lives on Vancouver Island, in the place where art, tech and spirit meet, and where she spends her free time filming local celebrities from JPod with her partner Mark, and edits videos to support her kitten overlords Freja and Saga, who hitched a ride from Norway and have decided Vancouver Island is warmer.
