HAPÉ CEREMONY + SOUND BATH
Tobacco Plant Medicine, for those wanting to go deeper.
Note: Due to the nature of this ceremony, timings can vary; please be flexible.
Treat yourself to a powerful Shamanic Journey with a Sound Bath and Hapé Ceremony experience. Surrender to the healing power of sound and plant medicine and connect deeply and intimately with your spiritual world.
We will begin by honoring our sacred land for her healing gifts; we will ground through sound and breath and connect with our centers of energy.
Hape will be served by blowing a small amount through each of your nostrils using a tepi (a specially made pipe). When Hape enters your nose, it immediately permeates through your mucous membranes releasing toxins, mucus, and other unwanted things in the body, helping purify your system and strengthening your immunity.
Hape is a powerful, shamanic medicine made by ancient tribes and indigenous cultures for thousands of years. Hape is a pulverized mix of Nicotiana Rustica (a type of tobacco tree also known as Mapacho) and ashes from other plants according to the tribe who prepared it. When served in a manner that honors the traditions Hape can provide insight, guidance, protection, cleansing and healing. It is a means to focus the mind by decalcifying the pineal gland, and releasing energies that do not serve you.
As you continue to journey, immerse yourself in somatic sound waves; various healing instruments are incorporated in the sound bath to provide you with a soothing, relaxing experience charged with therapeutic sounds that will leave you with a lasting impression.
A Sound Bath is a live, immersive, meditative experience for your brain, body, and soul. As you relax (sit or lie down) sound vibrations will wash over you, taking you on an expansive inward journey.
This sound experience is offered in a nature environment in a clear dome (with controlled temperature) to maintain a connection to the healing vortex that is the Joshua Tree desert. After your session, we will integrate over a cup of fresh tea and you are welcome to take a stroll around the lake.
Please fast for 1 hour before the ceremony and avoid a heavy meal for 4 hours before.On the day, please avoid alcohol to respect the energetic container we will be co-creating as a group.
Please bring anything you need to feel comfortable. Feel free to bring your own yoga mat, blanket, and anything else you need for comfort if you prefer it.
For clarification purposes: Hapé is legal in the USA and does not contain any hallucinatory agents.
