What is Rapé?
Experience Rapé, a sacred shamanic ‘medicine’ that has been used by healers of many different Amazonian tribes for thousands of years, and is an essential element of their tribal culture and history. Also called the ‘dust of the ancients’, Rapé has been used for rituals and ceremonies like Ayahuasca that have existed along these tribes for as long as they know themselves and their traditions. Rapé is ideal for gaining clarity, clearing the mind, rebalancing energies, and finding the right focus. Use it for rituals, ceremonies, or meditation, and gain the clarity you’ve been looking for. Rapé can also be used in daily life as incense.
The Yawanawá inhabit the southern part of the Gregório River Indigenous Land, and are currently led by Tashka and Laura Yawanawa, a couple that have worked hard to expand Yawanawa territory, reinvigorate Yawanawa culture, and establish economically and socially empowering relationships with the outside world. The whole community and their allies fight for their right to their land, and try very hard to preserve their home, nature, and the forest. Yawanawa tribes live in harmony with the natural world, and they send a strong message to the outside world about the importance of preserving the forests and being in harmony with nature. The Yawanawa have a profound knowledge in their shamanic system kept by their initiates and shamans. The study of Yawanawa spirituality begins with prayers, diets, and intense initiation. Rapé has a central role in their culture as it is one of their main preparations of strength and power. By buying this rapé, you can support the tribes of Yawanawa people.
Slight variations in rapé
Although rapé is made by following a certain recipe, the recipe is seen more so as a guideline rather than something ‘written in stone’. A shaman or medicine man will sometimes slightly alter the ratio of ingredients or the harvest time by following his/her intuition. Please keep in mind that due to the natural qualities of ingredients used in rapé, each batch can naturally vary in strength, scent, or color.
In our journey to create a product that is as sustainable as possible, we chose to use glass bottles instead of plastic ones. We strive to contribute as little as possible to the production of plastic (waste), therefore, we would like to ask everyone to keep the delivered Rapé jars and reuse them for other purposes. We are also in the process of developing a recycling program for glass bottles.
