Workshop Description

The Medicine of Hape (or Rapé), known also as "The Medicine of Silence" is a powerful ritual that focuses the mind and clears the energy field. This medicine is based on native South American Tobacco, tree ashes, and medicinal plants.

This journey starts with an introduction to the medicine, some history and properties of this practice, co creation of a sacred safe space, in trust and surrender, held lovingly by those who have studied and experienced their own growth and transformation with rapé. The medicine is an opportunity for grounding, internal alignment, to centre ourselves in stillness and peace within high festival energy, supported by music and love from our family.
