What is Rapéh? (pronounced Ha`peh)
Our daily live is hectic. In the modern jungle which we live in, we become hectic ourselves.
What everyone longs for in this madness is to experience peace and harmony. How?
With Rapéh a harmonizing and cleansing medicinal plant. From the indigenous people of Brazil.
Rapéh is a shamanic snuff made from fermented tobacco. Which is combined with ashes from trees, plants, seeds and oils. Rapéh is used to ground and center us. In the modern world we use it after a hard day of work, to relive stress, sending our prayers and use before meditation. It prepares them physically, mentally and spiritually for receiving sacred medicines. Which are an essential part of their culture and history.
Rapéh is not sniffed. Instead it is administered to the nose. Using a traditional blowpipe named Kuripe or Tepi.
How to use Rapéh
Rapéh is blown in each of the nostrils one after the other. With an applicator called “Kuripe,” it is used to blow the powder into your own nose. Another applicator is called “Tepi,” this one is used to share with others, by blowing Rapèh into somebody’s nostrils.
The intense blow immediately concentrates the mind. Gossip of the mind stops and space is cleared to open your mind for your intentions. This helps releasing emotional, physical and spiritual illness. It also reduces negativity. Enabling a deep focus of the mind. Shamans use Rapéh likewise, to re-align with their energy channels. To intensify their connection to nature, the world, the universe and their higher selves.
Our advice is to start with a pea-sized amount of Rapèh for both nostrils. For beginners we recommend starting with a Mulateiro Rapèh and amild dose of Rapéh and after a period increasing the dosage. For the more experienced or to use in ceremony’s, to go deeper or for healing. We suggest trying stronger Rapéh blends and quantities like Pitakaya and 7 Herbs.
Take a moment for yourself, connect with the Rapéh spirit. Always use with respect and enjoy finding out which Rapéh connects the best with you.
Together with the Indigenous tribe’s we put our prayers and love in all the blends for you. So you can connect, enjoy and relax!
