Messmer, Leonard Cohen, and a Baby

First published in Montréal Writes

This is a nonfiction piece where I describe my participation in a show given by Messmer, a hypnotist. I explain how I surprised myself by being one of the audience members who gets hypnotized by Messmer, and how that bizarre experience taught me about myself, my anxieties and how to keep them at bay.
