COURTNEY GARNER BIO

SIGN SAGITTARIUS (FIRE)

FROM MUSKEGON, MI

LIVES IN SOUTHERN CALI

SPECIALTIES MEDITATION, TANTRIC HEALING, TANTRIC MALE TRAINING

Courtney is a passionate Tantra Practitioner & Tibetan 5 Element Healer. She teaches Tantra based in Tibetan lineage, Taoist tantra and Neo tantra. As an experienced medical practitioner, she offers instruction with a strong foundation in health and well being of the physical body. Her recent work has been focused on treating the energetic root causes of illness and emotional suffering through mindful self-care training and Tantric healing practices. Courtney’s mission continues to cultivate a compassionate community that will consistently choose to “Lead with Love.”

West Meets East…

As a youth, Courtney fostered a fascination with the human body that eventually propelled her into a career as a PACU nurse. She has worked in many healthcare settings since then, including 5 years as a home health nurse that changed her focus to one to one care. Seeing the vast improvements in her 80+ patient made in his final years inspired Courtney to focus her tantric training and medical knowledge on providing holistic options for the public.

Healing Her Se8uality…

Courtney found tantra like most people, when they needed it. While dealing with intimacy issues in her personal life and looking for mental calm, she ended up training to become a certified Tantra practitioner, and quickly learned to integrate the spiritual technology into her life and experience tangible holistic results. Through the lens of her own healing she developed motivation to help others find intimacy, balance, and overcome se8ual dysfunction. She has focused on building a bridge between men and women’s se8ual awareness through holistic education and Tantric Healing technology.

Her Current Mission…

Courtney’s current focus is on meeting the need for accessible mindfulness education in all areas of life, including se8ual health. She’s an all access Tantrica who many seek guidance from on meditation, healing trauma, activating orgasm, and Tantric Male training to name a few.

Courtney continues to cultivate her intuition and skills as a healer by traveling the world offering healing sessions & workshops.

real practice = real results

Courtney’s understanding of the body combined with a structured holistic practice has yielded some amazing results. One example is getting rid of her own nagging asthma symptoms. After getting to a point of using her inhaler 4 times a day, it was time to apply her practice along with a system of mindful exercises that would reverse the programming of asthma on a subtle level. This method worked successfully!

SINCE CURING HER ASTHMA SYMPTOMS WITH TANTRA TECHNOLOGY, SHE FINALLY TOOK THE INHALER OUT OF HER PURSE AFTER NOT USING IT FOR ALMOST 2 YEARS.

These tangible experiences keep her motivated to go deeper and find more ways to guide people into healthier, more fulfilling, and empowered lives. Join her mission to cultivate more connection and fulfillment through teaching mindful habits, Tantric Healing, and having more guilt-free enjoyment in Life!

Uplevel your Survival IQ with 6 Basic Preparedness Zones

The term prepping refers to the process by which you incrementally increase your level of preparedness for emergency/disaster on a continuum from short-term self-reliance to long-term self-sufficiency.

The term preps can be defined as tangible items or systems that you acquire or build and use in prepping. While some people may include intangible things such as weapons training, drills, skill development, etc. in their definition of preps, for the purpose of this piece, the focus is on physical items.

The stereotype that survivalists live alone in underground bunkers in the middle of nowhere is rarely accurate. The media sensationalizes the extreme cases, but the reality is that a holistic family oriented survival plan involves several locations and several different scales. I’ve organized the list below in order of scale from the smallest to the largest caches of preps in a pyramidal model to represent overlapping zones.

  • Body
  • Bug Out Bag
  • Bug Out Vehicle
  • Workplace/School
  • Home
  • Bug Out Location

Body

Preppers promote taking some level of responsibility for your safety and security by not only developing self-defense, first-aid, and other survival skill sets, but by carrying implements, tools, devices, and supplies on your person at all times. Having preps on your person isn’t only so you can help yourself and your family, it’s also so you can help others in need.

What you carry on your person is often referred to as “Every Day Carry” or “EDC”. On this scale your preps will include an array of smaller survival gear items. The number of items you carry will be determined by the amount of pockets, belt accessories, carabiners, etc. you’re comfortable with. Fashion and function can be hard to reconcile, but it’s worth an attempt. Many people walk through the world without care or thought of the potential for anything to go wrong. The expectation that something bad will “never happen to me” is a symptom of what is clinically called “normalcy bias”. This is a psychological tendency to avoid considering and logically preparing for disruptions in modern business-as-usual life.

Unfortunately if we encounter bad guys on the street, chances are police won’t arrive on the scene until the incident is over. If we’re in a disaster situation, emergency medical responders may not be able to get to us in the time it takes to die or become seriously ill from preventable causes such as bleeding, dehydration, infection, etc.

Items often carried every day by preppers may include some of the following:

cutting tools, fire making tools, multi-tool, parachute cord, led light, compass, first-aid items (band-aids, alcohol pads), whistle, water purification tablets, emergency medical info card, list of emergency contacts, bandana, cell phone with additional charged battery, flash drive, notepad, writing utensil, “forever” postage stamps, prepaid phone card, cash, checks, herbal energy pills, p38 can opener, water bottle, pepper spray, misc. legal self-defense implements…

Bug Out Bag (BOB)

The “Bug out Bag”, a.k.a. “BOB”, is the survivalist slang for what is more officially known as a 72-hour emergency kit. However, the critical distinction is that a BOB must be in the form of a back-pack that can allow you to move on foot, hands-free.

On this scale of preps, you may have some of the same items that you’d have for EDC, however in greater lengths, quantities, container sizes, etc. as you’ll have the main column of the bag, plus many extra pockets, compartments, straps, clips, etc.

Here’s a list of some of the items often found in or attached to BOBs.

More fire making tools, more parachute cord, flashlight, batteries, candles, first aid kit, extra medications, hand crank/solar emergency weather radio, signal mirror, toilet paper, tweezers, toothbrush, misc. toiletries, sun block, bug spray, warm clothes (kept dry in a large zip lock bag), rain gear, gloves, hat, sun glasses, mess kit (eating dish/utensils), lightweight pot for cooking/boiling water, salt/spices, three days worth of dry food, hooks/sinkers, wild edible plant identification books, bigger water bottle, water filtration devices, 5 gallon collapsible water jug, small bottle of bleach, folding shovel, wire saw, sewing needles and floss, pen or pencil wrapped with duct tape, pen or pencil wrapped with fishing line, full size notebook, envelopes, plastic bags, garbage bags, survival manuals, entertainment devices such as books or games, documentation package (including emergency contacts, local emergency service provider phone numbers, evacuation procedures/plans/packing checklists, multiple evacuation routes, encrypted bank account, social security, etc. numbers, list of family medications/medical conditions, etc.), maps, sleeping bag, space blanket, tube tent, therma-rest pad, tarp, poly sheeting, legal self-defense tools carried in accordance with local law…

It helps to separate and categorize your items into zip-lock bags and distribute the bags into to different pockets and compartments for easy access. The bags also help keep your gear dry.

This sounds like a lot of stuff but if properly organized and compacted a lot of it can comfortably fit in/on a large camping pack. Depending on the nature of the situation, you may want to drop a lot of weight so you can cover more ground on foot. In Saving Private Ryan, the scene in which the translator joins the unit shows how a combat-inexperienced soldier tries to pack everything he was issued in his bag for the mission, and is made to leave most of it behind by his fellow soldiers. This is a useful bit of insight demonstrating that “the more you know the less you need,” and that you have to be realistic about your ability to haul more than the bare minimum.

Your normal commuting vehicle (which may or not be your “Bug Out Vehicle”) should always contain your BOB so that it will be accessible wherever you drive. Storing it in the trunk also ensures you’ll never forget it at home, and when you need to lighten the load and take a few items out, you can lock them in your trunk or locked box in a flatbed truck.

Of course if you’re riding a bus, if you are a passenger in someone else’s vehicle, or riding a bike, it won’t be feasible to bring your BOB with you. In those situations you’ll be relying on EDC, or a smaller backpack with a selection of items from your BOB depending on the situation. For example, if you’re hiking, you’d want to grab a selection of items from your BOB and put them in your day pack.

Most importantly, every member of your family should have a BOB, and every BOB should contain the same version of the documentation package. In an emergency you’ll then be able to co-ordinate your response based on documented protocols that everyone has the current printed version of.

Bug Out Vehicle (BOV)

Your “Bug Out Vehicle” may be a huge 4-wheel-drive monster or a compact car. Older diesel trucks are preferable as they have less electrical components that can fail, and they can be converted to run on veggie oil. Whatever you prefer and have the means to acquire can serve as your BOV, though traditionally it’s a truck or SUV. All that’s required is that it be stocked with extra preps and be equipped with accessories that will optimize performance and provide redundancies in evacuation scenarios.

Besides simply scaling up some of your preps (such as a 5 gallon bucket of dry food that preferably doesn’t require cooking, one or more gallons of water, a larger first aid kit, etc. the following are some preps specific to the BOV:

Flares, basic tools, spare parts (headlights, belts, bulbs, etc.), quarts of oil, extra fluids, map books, solar power system, power inverter, spare tire, snow chains, jack, blankets, tent, boots, entrenching tool, books, gas can (keep empty unless it can be stored safely and securely), more legal self-defense tools transported in accordance with local law, any other large utility/emergency items that don’t fit in or are not appropriate for your BOB.

Every family vehicle should be to some degree prepped to function as a BOV, even if there’s one larger vehicle that’s designated as the main BOV.

Workplace/School

This refers to the place where most of your time is spent outside of the home, wherever that may be. The goal would be to get your colleagues or co-workers on-board with prepping so that they collaborate and pool resources to ensure that there are preps on-site. Whether in a basement, storage closet, or under your desk you should try to get some amount of food/water/medical supply storage set up. If nothing else, try to convince whoever’s in charge to at least have emergency kits on-site that are sized appropriately for the number of people in your office, dorm, etc.

Most likely if done right, you can store a lot without it being a nuisance and have some sense of security knowing that if you end up stuck there, you won’t die of dehydration, starvation, or mild injuries.

Home

Without being too extreme, you should see your home as your fort. It’s the place where you let down your guard at night and go to sleep. It’s the place where you raise your family, or are being raised by your family. It’s where you should feel the most safe and secure, and where you should have the most control of your survival. Again, many of the prep items you’ll want at home have been listed above, but here are some preps that are unique to the home:

large water tanks, rain water catchment systems, months to years worth of long term food storage in the form of canned foods and dry foods including your favorite grains, legumes, seeds (for eating, sprouting, and planting), nuts, spices, dried herbs, dried fruits, etc. in 5 gallon bucket/mylar bag/oxygen absorber kits on a rotation system so you “eat what you store and store what you eat”, sprout jars, green house, permaculture garden (food forest if possible), irrigation systems, herbal medicine cabinet, organic recycling center (i.e. compost, vermiculture, humanure, etc), guard dog(s), livestock, food dehydrator, canning equipment, solar power system with battery bank, more legal weapons, low and high tech security systems, toiletry reserves, fuel reserves (gas, firewood, etc.), generator, full camping gear for the whole family, bigger/more specialized hand/power tools, fire-proof lock box for important documents, back up computers, back up external hard drives, lots of useful practical/instructional books and videos, cash, precious metal reserves, large self-assembled or store bought emergency kits…

Bug Out Location (BOL)

The “Bug Out Location” a.k.a. “BOL” or “survival retreat” is your ultimate destination in the case of forced or voluntary evacuation from your normal place of residence. Ideally it would be far out of the urban and suburban zones though not necessarily totally isolated. For those who can afford the luxury, the BOL is a piece of rural land that you own and have put some kind of legal temporary or permanent inhabitable structure on (trailer, teepee, yurt, cabin, house, natural building, etc.)

If you don’t have the luxury to buy land, you may discover that you have relatives living in the countryside, or friends living on farms with whom you can pre-arrange to stay with under an agreement that you’ll pay rent, or do work-trade.

No matter how you gain access to a temporary or permanent living situation for you and your family, what matters is that you have a plan in place. The plan should ensure that you have a main BOL and several fall back locations if the main location is inaccessible, and have multiple routes to each location. It’s also important to work out a system whereby if members of your family or group reach a certain rally point, there’s a predefined way to “post” inconspicuous communications about who’s reached that point, when they got there, and where they left to.

In terms of the scales of preps, the main BOL will often have the largest stockpile of preps when you factor in the ability to hide or bury large caches and the ability to establish permaculture edible forest gardens, ponds, springs, streams, swales, wood lots, wind power, solar power, micro-hydro systems, etc. Ultimately the ideal BOL would be a rural homestead. However the extent to which it’s developed by the time you need it will be determined by how much time, energy, and money you can afford to put into it while you’re not actually living on it.

In rural zones, the land itself is a prep. The more you do to prep the landscape, the more yields you’ll produce that are regenerative. In an apartment or small urban lot, you’re usually not able to access and produce renewable resources on the scale needed to be self-sufficient. Urban preps are generally only going to serve for a finite period of self-reliance until the supplies run out. It’s worth noting that in both urban and rural contexts, self-sufficiency is rarely achieved on a household level, rather it requires the functional interdependence of a small community.

Ideally if you’re “bugging out” to your BOL, you’ll have taken as many of the preps from the smaller levels of the pyramid with you so you’ll be combining preps as well.

The BOL is typically seen as the end point of the game where if you’re successful at making it there alive you’ll be relatively safe, secure, and supplied. However, most preppers acknowledge to varying degrees and extremes that to be prepared while being surrounded by the ill-prepared is a recipe for disaster. Generally, the higher the population density, the greater the risk of being jumped, besieged, or raided. So the more remote you are, the less likely the ill-prepared will be to expend the energy to find and take your provisions. There’s a trade-off though which is that the further you are from at least a small town, the fewer services are available. Also, without neighbors (who you may need to rely on to save your life someday or even just barter with) your survivability and quality of life might be diminished.

Re-Establishing a Culture of Preparedness

No individual, family, or group is an island. Ideally the largest step of the prepping pyramid would be a culture of preparedness wherein redundancy is built into every system that the population relies on for basic survival. It’s not utopian, a hundred years ago it was common sense. According to prominent prepper Stewart Rhodes in episode 602 of The Survival Podcast, “during the Cold War, this country had enough grain to feed all of its people for three years in the event of a nuclear winter, now they have enough to feed all of us half a loaf of bread.”

Our ancient and recent ancestors had the wisdom to live by the ways of the ant, not the grasshopper (see Aesop’s fable “The Ant and the Grasshopper”). In the modern survivalist movement, it’s accepted that winter is coming again as it has in the past and will in the future.

Apocalypse would be an easy way out, but in all likelihood, the world will continue to cycle with nature, not end. We’ll have to choose to be prepared. Moreover, it doesn’t take TEOTWAWKI (“the end of the world as we know it”) for any individual or family to experience an acute localized disaster. Be it a job loss, an injury, death of a loved one, etc, when the s**t his hit your fan, it’s your preps that will carry you through in a state of relative comfort and help buffer desperation.

The Survival Podcast has provided numerous planning and strategy tools such as the “threat probability matrix” and notion of “disaster commonality” (see episode 166) to help people identify the threats that are most likely to occur in their personal lives, location, climate, etc. and understand that in many ways the fundamental preps and planning needed to survive anything from the “mundane to the insane” are the generally the same.

It’s important while prepping to be creative and make it fun-based not fear-based. Thanks to the modern survival movement there’s a fail-safe principle built-in which essentially states that whatever you do to be prepared for disaster should improve your quality of life whether or not s**t hits the fan! The best example is growing some portion of your own food.

Just avoid panic buying. As with permaculture the best solutions are small and slow. Continually incrementally add to your preps when grocery items go on sale, when you get extra cash, when you can score something on Craigslist, when there’s a yard sale, etc. Start small, make it fun, get into the groove and you’ll enjoy having a more sensible lifestyle that actually empowers you to be an evermore safe, secure, confident, and dutiful cosmic citizen, community member, and family member.

“It’d be nice to have some kind of place to raise awareness about animal rights, I feel that’s a very important thing in today’s world to be sympathetic to another form of being…once you introduce that  to the world and they can prove to themselves that they’re capable of loving a different form of life, that would be great, a little volunteer center or something to let people know, it would be nice to have a garden where people can go and just talk about all of these things that they like, not material things…and be able to connect with one another, to share ideas.

The long journey that I’m embarking right now, basically I want to go into restorative art with the idea and the attempt of trying to create a more ecologically friendly burial system because I really do not agree with the tradition of burying your loved one in a box, and pumping it up with all of those chemicals. I want to come up with…the Mirna tonic and it would with herbs obviously, but it would be a more natural herbal preservative so that way we’re dying with dignity and we’re going back into the earth so these plants take over you and you go back into the earth how we’re supposed to.”

Saku is a yogini, musician, and dancer of South Asian heritage who received her yoga certification in Bangalore, India, her BFA Multi-focus Percussion Performance from California Institute of the Arts, and MM Commercial Music Composition from CSULA. She is also a NCCPT certified personal trainer and credentialed educator who has taught middle and high school music.

​Yoga, along with a healthy plant-based diet and recognizing the divine feminine, are necessary complements to her dance regiment, as well as all other aspects of life: playing drums of the East and West, performing music, producing music, dancing, MCing punk rock shows and solidarity festivals, DJing and/or dancing for South Asian LGBTQ events, maintaining a circulated body through long flights to South Asia and back, smashing patriarchy and toxic masculinity on both sides of the globe, and changing the planet through her activism for LGBTQ, people of color, feminism, and animals.

Yoga has always been her cross-training for her classical Indian and Middle Eastern dance training regiments, as well as healing and maintaining her overall peace of mind and balance in life. She uses this experience to unwind some of the greatest minds in the world, as she is the current evening yoga instructor for NASA in Pasadena, CA.

She believes in the bounty of healing that Mother Earth provides through herbs and plants, and also believes in living in harmony with her. She regularly visits and shares notes with her relatives in the Ayurvedic medicine field in Sri Lanka.

Born and raised in Theravada Buddhism, she has expanded her spirituality to include gender balanced and Goddess-workshipping Tantric Buddhism and meditation techniques.

She also believes in providing necessary healing for social justice activists so that they can recharge and continue doing the important planet-changing work that they do without burning out. It is important to her to get healing yoga to various communities of classes, cultures, and genders in order to bring inner and outer union, harmony, and balance to them (for both individuals and community). A little yoga works wonders for destroying toxic masculinity and properly balancing feminine and masculine energies in any culture!

She applies the Sanskrit definition of yoga, which is “union”, to her multicultural and diverse lifestyle as she flows through the different worlds of punk, hip hop, and other musical styles and worlds, practicing Eastern spirituality in the West, and raising vibrations smashing patriarchy in activism in various cultural and LGBTQ communities.

She teaches and performs locally and internationally.
