About Hapé/Rapé & Cacao Rapé, a sacred shamanic snuff, carries the wisdom and healing energy of ancient indigenous traditions. Crafted from a blend of powdered tobacco leaves and other medicinal plants, Rapé is administered through the nostrils, allowing its powerful properties to permeate the mind, body, and spirit. This sacred medicine is revered for its ability to cleanse energetic blockages, expand consciousness, and connect individuals to the wisdom of the natural world. With deep respect for indigenous cultures and their ancestral knowledge, Rapé offers a profound journey of self-discovery and transformation. Learn more here: 

Ceremonial-grade cacao, the purest form of chocolate, is far more than a delightful indulgence. It holds a rich history rooted in ancient Mayan and Aztec civilizations, where it was considered a sacred plant medicine. Ceremonial cacao carries a high vibrational frequency and is meticulously prepared with reverence and intention. When consumed in a ceremonial setting, this divine elixir opens the heart and connects us to our inner selves, fostering a deep sense of love, compassion, and unity. As we sip this heavenly elixir, we honor the spirit of cacao and embrace its transformative power, allowing it to guide us on a journey of self-discovery, healing, and profound connection with ourselves and the world around us.

When used together in a ceremony, the intention is to create a powerful and transformative experience that combines the purifying and grounding effects of rapé with the heart-opening and connecting qualities of ceremonial cacao. The ceremony will involve the participants receiving rapé before the cacao ceremony.

IMPORTANT: Cacao & Rape´ should not be mixed with recreational drugs as the effects of the combination is unknown and cannot be controlled. If you’re on medication, make sure you’ve told the shaman ahead of time to ensure the ceremony is right for you.
