Rapeh Healing Ceremony (up to two hours)

Rapeh Healing Ceremony (up to two hours)


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.

Add To Cart

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 Healing Properties of Medicinal Rapé

Rapé can be mixed also with other mind-altering plants, like c**a, jurema, or yopo and can potentiate the healing capacity of other plants. Furthermore, rapé helps to release 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.

The Ritual Use of Rapé Among Indigenous Tribes of the Amazon Basin

From the indigenous point of view, rapé is a sacred shamanic snuff medicine with profound healing effects. Rapé is made from different medicinal plants for different purposes – to induce visions, to have energy, to enhance the senses with the aromatic fragrance of the plants used in the blend. Given that there are myriad medicinal plants you can blend into rapé, there are as many rapé recipes in existence, and these recipes are often closely guarded by the tribes.

Sharing rapé – or “passando rapé” – is a traditionally a ritualistic practice among the Indians that may include specific chants to activate the force of the rapé and to confer the healing power of the forest upon the rapé recipient.

Our Ceremony

We will sit in a sacred ceremony, calling for healing & protection, and bring the sacred Rapé in the circle. We will set an individual intention on what we want to work on / release/heal. Those intentions can focus on physical, emotional, mental and/or Spiritual needs of each participant.

Based on your intention, I will select the Rapé that will support the most your needs for healing and guidance. I work with 15+ different Rapé coming directly from various tribes in Peru & Brazil.

Rapé will be given to you and the experience will be guided by music, drumming, etc. The whole experience lasts around 30 to 45 minutes.

Another round of Rapé serving will be offered for those who wish to go deeper/further with the plant.

We will then have time for sharing, guidance, and support.

The whole ceremony last around 2 hours and is a very unique and deep healing experience. The Rapé guidance and healing will continue sometimes for days after so we might receive more healing in dream time, or during our daily life.
