BIO on Courtni "StarHeart" Hale
Holistic therapist and Spiritual Guide

Courtni "StarHeart" is a traditionally trained 'Medicine Person' or 'Shaman' who has studied under the tutelage of a Pueblo Medicine Man for 10+ years in Albuquerque NM. The elders of this Federally recognized Church are internationally known for their work in uniting people under the umbrella of universal spiritual practice and natural and traditional knowledge.

Her studies include a very traditional Native American path of apprenticeship and community involvement, with emphasis on Holistic Healing and Natural Technology. After becoming a Federally authorized Minister in the Church of the Spiritual Path (which allows her to legally administer Plant Medicine under Ceremony, as well as to pour Sweat Lodge, hold Kiva Lodge, traditional Dance and Pipe Ceremony) she remained in New Mexico to continue to serve the community and formed the group known as Urban Shaman, which has been running for 5+ years and includes more than 300 people.

Kambo Frog Medicine and Sweat

The Kiva

$85.00

Looking for a serious Game Changer? Want to take your life to a new level? Health, Mental clarity and consciousness are said to come from this powerful Amazonian Frog Medicine (Kambo). You can Un-Stick yourself with Kambo... The best way, period, to get yourself out of old patterns and habits. https://youtu.be/Qgys6sQQhSM Note. 3 treatments within 6 weeks are ideal. Please make certain to be prepared for some serious life changes. This means that whatever you have been carrying around that no longer serves your higher good may have to give way! Kambo is a medicine that comes from frog secretion, and for many indigenous cultures in the Amazon, this purgative, immunity-boosting medicine is very important. Known in Portuguese as the “vaccine of the forest,” it has also gained renown outside of the Amazon as a powerful treatment for chronic pain and drug dependence. Kambo is powerful medicine and shouldn’t be administered except under the care of an experienced practitioner. A practitioner can help guide you to gain the maximum benefits from a kambo application, helping you to set an intention before the ceremony, ensure proper set and setting during the ceremony, and integrate the experience afterward. Benefits of Kambo Research conducted since the 1980s has shown the chemical makeup of kambo to contain short chains of amino acids, known as peptides, that affect gastrointestinal muscles and blood circulation as well as stimulate the adrenal cortex and pituitary gland in the brain. While there are no clinical studies that definitely back up kambo’s efficacy, the properties of kambo peptides make it a promising treatment for the following conditions: Depression Migraines Blood circulation problems Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease Vascular insufficiency Organ diseases Cancer Fertility problems Deeply rooted toxins Chronic pain Addiction to opiate or prescription painkillers (Kambo reduces physical pain, thus helping people kick their addictions to other painkillers) Fever and infections Negative energies (traditionally known as “panema”) How Kambo is Administered In the Amazon, kambo is traditionally collected early in the morning, when the Phyllomedusa bicolor—the giant monkey frog from which the venom is derived—are singing and can easily be found. Without harming them, a shaman scrapes venom from the frog’s skin with a stick. The venom is then administered to a person via small holes that are burned into the top few layers of their skin, usually on the arm. Because of its purging and cleansing properties, kambo is often used as a precursor to an ayahuasca ceremony, which is also used by many of the same tribes. Undertaking a kambo ceremony can be an intense experience, but leaves you feeling relaxed after about an hour. While the experience is not for everyone, Kambo’s cleansing effects begin within minutes of administration, and it leaves most people feeling less pain in the days and weeks after treatment. Sweat and Meeting is a prerequisite for Grandmother Tea. Package rate for all weekend activities is $325 or $85 for Kambo and Sweat alone. All Ceremony includes quiet, self-preparation, and the willingness to do ones personal work daily. This isn’t for everyone and there is an interview process so please make sure to get in touch with the Ceremonial Leader. Courtni “StarHeart” [masked] Frequently asked questions intake is mandatory as well as your filling out an intake form about your medical and personal history. Attendance to the Talking Stick Circle is mandatory. After many years of study with various traditions Courtni is authorized to administer Kambo, Sweat, Pipe and several other healing ceremonies.

Drumming takes you on a Journey to your Inner World, where you can retrieve pieces of knowledge and repair your heart and spirit. Yoga helps to integrate the new awareness into the body, along with the breath. Soul Retrieval Many people experience the feeling of being reunited with a lost piece of themself, and they will be allowed to open up into a higher state of awareness as they retrieve Soul Fragments. These Fragments are pieces of ourselves that we sacrifice during our youth and in our adults lives also. As we negotiate a sometimes hostile world, we make contracts to bury pieces of ourselves which need to reemerge in order to repair our vessels which hold Love. Our Hearts will become more and more whole each time we Journey to the Inner World and retrieve, renegotiate and reinterpret our Missing pieces.

Not for the faint of heart, only for those willing to take a big leap into personal development. Kambo is said to be a powerful medicine for change. It's known as a 'somatic reset' by practitioners in the Amazon, where it comes from. Said to help break people our of old patterns that are trapped in the limbic/lizard brain, or to help with 'panema' - a general condition of being trapped in old patterns. https://youtu.be/fWv2mpHM3_w No one can promise what the medicine will do, and sometimes people "get well" or release physical stuff that no longer serves them. A release waiver must be signed and only members of 'Flowering Vine Clan' may attend. Due to the Freedom of Religion Act, you no longer have to travel to the Amazon to enjoy Medicine Ceremonies, but you do have to be engaged in an authentic Religious Ceremony in order to qualify.

Please fast 24 hours before, and make your intentions clear through prayer and meditation.
