Sacred RAPÉ Ceremony

  • le coeur 602 Haywood Road Asheville, NC, 28806 United States (map)

with shamanic healers Guillaume Gauthereau + Jane Mayer

Rapé – pronounced ha-PAY – is a preparation of powdered medicinal herbs, often with a tobacco base – that is taken through the nose. This practice of consuming powdered plant medicines through the nose is pre-Columbian and was first observed among the Brazilian indigenous tribes.

Today, indigenous tribes in the Amazon basin continue to use rapé in all aspects of life, from formal ritual use in rites of puberty, initiation, cashiri drinkings festivals, social gatherings and healing ceremonies, to simply tuning into Nature and the healing power of sacred plant medicines alone or with friends.The ritual use of rapé is also making its way around the world.

Rapé helps releasing emotional, physical, and spiritual illnesses and eases negativity and confusion, enabling a thorough grounding of the mind (in its original sense, tobacco is a hallucinogen). Likewise, shamans use rapé to re-align with their energy channels and with their higher self, and to intensify their connection with the world and the universe. In addition, rapé paves the way to detoxify the body and cleans out all excessive mucus, toxins and bacteria.
