Healing from Trauma, The Force and Drive Behind the scenes
Gemma Ra’Star has been living off-grid in Northern New Mexico for over 20 years while being of service to horses, children, and plant medicine foods in the ‘spiritual mecca’ of Taos, NM, USA. She is typically found in earth-based ceremonies motivating herself and others.
Impassioned by assisting with healing through alchemizing the Hemp Heroe products, she has been leading free equine therapy sessions with families and our younger generations.
Ms. Ra’Star avidly encourages people to walk with the laws of the land.
Gemma is a survivor.
In 2000 Gemma magically found Taos, NM and the traditional, native Pueblo lifestyles.
It was there several native families opened up their hearts and homes to her, a very broken child at that time, and afforded her life-altering blessings. She began to graciously find reasons to stay on this planet, healing from all the trauma she had been through.
Ms. Ra’Star was given opportunities to learn several diverse cultural arts experiences in off-grid living, detox methods, working with wild mustangs, learning Qigong and Tai Chi from Taoist, attending earth-based ceremonies,
and eating plant based medicinal foods with hippies.
This vision deliberately provides pure, clean energy spaces focusing on sustainability and green solutions while ensuring the absence of predators, alcohol, harmful drugs, refined sugars, and abuse.
Ms. Ra' Star continues to provide opportunities for youth and family to experience mediative earth-based ceremony in indigenous spaces working through family, personal and lineage trauma so they don't have to relive what she experienced and/or finding self healing through one's trauma.
Our programs focus on building the community stronger by providing the implementation of growing stronger relations and connections with horses, water, plant medicine foods and the complicated ways of humanity.
We believe in peace and we live by this example.
Humility & Gratitude
"I have overcome ridicule, jealousy, envy and humiliation by people in my community and here I stand now being supported by some of the very best of New Mexico who have also been putting the same kind of sweat, blood and tears to make this medicine more readily available for the citizens of our beautiful New Mexico and beyond. "
Gemma's efforts have been supporting sustainable economic, agricultural, and healing growth within indigenous communities, while building eco-conscious hemp practices.
