Luke V. says, "100% A++++++ At a high level. I had a wonderful experience.
I had a number of zoom meetings the month before my planned visit with Courtni that helped me prepare but her guide and readings were excellent. I loved the books(audio) that were required, and the overall different areas of preparation helped me be successful. Changing my diet was hard but that paid off during my journey.
I flew in mid-afternoon and took the train into her area then taxied to my hotel. Simple and straightforward, plus the hotel ended being very close to Courtni. I am now a regular texter with Courtni and I am feeling a closeness because of how open, mindful and thorough everything has been since beginning. We planned to meet at 5pm(ish) for a few hours' day one. Day one night was more for cleansing and preparing the body/mind for the journey on day two. I meet Courtni and we are like two old/new friends with open dialog on life, experiences and the next day and a half. All good vibes and feelings from walking through the door. The Kambo medicine process was given about 8pm that night and was interesting. Courtni was thorough on setting my expectations and that all we were really doing was getting me ready for tomorrow. Courtni applied the Kambo and drove me back to my hotel and we planned to start around 11am the next morning.
Courtni picks me up at11:30 and we head into town to see what is going on. Huntington NY is a cool vibrant place with a lot of shopping and great places to eat. We drive around and down to a water spot then find a fantastic breakfast place. I’m not to eat much so I have an açaí berry bowl which was lovely. Courtni got a crepe that was gigantic, and we laughed about it throughout the day and weekend. After that, we went back to her house and sort of hung out. She was talking through the journey stages and making me aware of things that could come up. The plan was for around 7pm ish, I would start with some capsules and then possibly take another amount every two hours.
Seven o’clock comes and we take a walk and talk about our lives but broken up in 13 year portions. Courtni and I are pretty close now and very open. I feel like we are friends. We sort of take a long walk and I end up a bit sweaty. It was good to talk about our pasts and remember things not thought of in years.
We get back to the house and it’s probably 8+ now. We are sitting in a room and she sets the mood with music, some sage burning and candles. She gives me six capsules. Courtni also warns again that the medicine could make me sick and brings a bucket close.
Two hours go by and no effects. She pours me a Dixie cup worth of medicine and I drink it. It’s not pleasant and something like a barky porter beer that’s been sitting in the sun. Two more hours go by and still no effects. She gives me another Dixie cup of a different kind. She warns me that some people don’t journey for different reasons. After 30 minutes I feel the medicine coming and I ask to take the music and go into a quiet room. I am able to journey now once my eyes are closed. If I open them, it almost stops everything. As soon as I close them I am off. It’s magical and fast. I’m a dragon and I also played games of chess. I really kept thinking of my brother who was having health issues again. I think of past lovers and intimate times. More dragons and dark but fun visions. Courtni brings me more medicine.
3am I purged hard but there was nothing in my stomach. I feel great and strong with focus. I kept going back to my brother and worrying about him and how I would fix him. Throughout the night I would meditate off of dead ends and could guide myself to better things. Chess games kept jumping in my head and it sort of pissed me off.
I sort of slept somewhere around 5 and woke up around 7:30 when Courtni and I talked through the visions.
I have been integrating this experience in and feel like the medicine was good, but I also feel like my head was not quite ready. I feel better than I have in ten years but that’s also because I have been healthy and cleared out some negativity that was in my life.
All and all, it was a wonderful experience and I think it would be great for anyone who can prepare and is ready.
I hope this was not too much writing and you are doing well." Read more
