Other Shamanic medicines

Kaxinawa Rapé

Rapé is the general name given to medicines that are grinned into fine powder and then blown into both nostrils. Most rapés are made with tobacco and other ingredients.

Rapé can help us to move the energy that is blocked or when we feel stuck during Ayahuasca ceremonies. The use of Rapé is considered by the indigenous peoples to be therapeutic on multiple levels.  On the mental level it is known for clearing the mind, as well as helping to find ones center.

We have been working  exclusively with rapé from the yawanawa and Kaxinawa (Huni Kuin) tribes that is prepared with lots of prayers, respect and lots of focused attention and intention to be a helpful medicine. This medicine is composed by sacred tobacco and the ashes of a tree known as tsunú, which is consider to be one of the most used trees as remedy for many ailments.
