Rapé/Hapé (Shamanic Snuff)
Rapé, pronounced ‘ha-pey’, is a tradition used by various indigenous tribes of South America, predominantly from the tribes people of Brazil and Peru. Rapé is an Amazonian tobacco snuff which is blow into each nostril through a pipe known as a ‘Tepi’ or ‘Kuripe’, which is either made from a hollow bone, wood or bamboo. The rapé is prepared in a ritualistic way by specific members of the tribe.
In general, Rapé facilitates the opening and clearing of the chakras, facilitates a sense of grounding and connection to the earth. Some think it supports the release of disease from the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies. Furthermore some say that using rapé opens the third-eye chakra, decalcifies the pineal gland, clears mental fog and confusion. Finally it releases negative thought patterns and most of all it supports our connection to the breath and expands our connection to Spirit.
