What is Hape'?
Hapé is a legal sacred shamanic medicine that has been used by healers of the Amazon basin for thousands of years. It is pronounced ‘ha-peh’ in English, but is also referred to as ‘hapi’, or ‘rapay’ by westerners. These are sacred, powerful, and profoundly healing and cleansing miracle medicines. The medicines are made in a very sacred and labor intensive process. Hapé is a complex blend of pulverized Amazonian medicinal plants, trees, leaves, seeds, and other sacred ingredients such as ‘Mapacho’ tobacco (Nictotina Rustica). The result is a fine, light-colored powder. There are different types/blends of Hapé each having its own unique vibration, notes, qualities, subtleties, and effects on the energetic field.
How is Hape' administered?
Traditionally, Hapé is insufflated (blown up the nostrils). It can be self-administered using a V-shaped self-applicator pipe (known as a ‘kuripe’) which connects the mouth to the nostrils. Or, it can be administered by another person using a blow pipe (known as a ‘tepi’) which connects the blower’s mouth to the other person’s nostrils. When Hapé enters the nose, it immediately permeates the mucous membranes and enters the bloodstream. The constituents attach to nicotine receptors resulting in increased production of dopamine, acetylcholine, and epinephrine. These chemical processes elicit a feeling of relaxation and clarity.
