Service Description

Rapé (pronounced Ha-pay) is a sacred shamanic medicine used by tribes of the Amazon as well as other indigenous cultures for thousands of years. It is a snuff made of various tree and herb ashes, combined with fine tobacco. The tobacco is not the common type used in cigarettes, but rather Nicotina Rustica which is highly pure and potent. The resulting powder is highly refined. When applied and served in a manner that honors the tradition it is coming from, Rapé is a powerful medicine. It can provide insight, guidance, protection, cleansing and healing. It is a holy sacrament, not a substance, and thus should be treated accordingly. When working with Rapé, we work with the Rapé Spirit. Each blend has a different spirit associated with it. In a Rapé ceremony, we first honor the spirit of smoke (Defuma,) and then conduct an opening prayer handled by the facilitator. The participants are asked to have an intention in mind before receiving the Rapé which is served individually. The snuff is then administered by a special blow pipe called Tepi, one nostril at a time. Instructions as to the process are provided during the ceremony. The experience of Rapé is quite powerful and can last anything from a few minutes to several hours and days. A typical private Rapé session takes about 2 hours. Haux! Haux! Notes: For clarification purposes: Rapé is legal in the USA i.e. it does not contain any hallucinatory agents. Rapé helps guide us to clarity, focuses the mind, releases energies that do not serve us, balances the chakras and much, much more. Haux Haux! According to the indigenous people of Acre (Brazilian Amazon) Haux Haux was the first sound emitted by the jibóia (anaconda). It is normally used by the pajés (shamans)  when initiating and finalizing a song or healing work, as a greeting to the people and a greeting to the spiritual dimension. Over time “haux” has become a more flexible and commonly used term, meaning a greeting, an honouring, a confirmation or a thank you. Several types of Rapé as well as Kuripe (a self administration blowpipe) are available for purchase from The HAUX HAUX Shop. Please inquire if interested. AHO!
