Rapéh is considered to be a sacred, shamanic medicine. It’s traditionally prepared by a knowledgeable shaman of the tribe.
Because the medicine is sacred, the natives take rapé as a prayer calling upon the forces of Nature, the blessing of the animals of the forest, and power of medicinal plants to heal us and give us strength.
Rapé is administered with two different types of pipes, Kuripe / Tepi, which are typically made from bamboo or bone.
The Appropriate Set & Setting for a Rapé Ritual
Because the act of taking rapé is a prayer, the set and setting will impact the experience of your prayer.
The best places to take rapé are outside in nature, at the altar during a medicine ceremony, or in a quiet sacred space indoors, with high-vibrational music playing.
Avoid taking rapé where you might be interrupted – An ideal setting allows you to fully experience the effect of the rapé without distraction and have the space for quiet contemplation.
