Rapé & Sananga Ceremony

by Sanken Tsoma

Rapé (pronounced Hapee) is a sacred and powerful plant medicine with deep healing, cleansing and centering properties that has been used for centuries by Brazilian indigenous tribes such as the Huni Kuin, Yawanawa and Nukini.

The rapé is a powdered mixture of finely ground Mapacho tobacco and ingredients or ash of various medicinal plants and is blown into the noise through a bamboo pipe (tepi). It cleanses physically and energetically, it heals, opens the heart, centers the mind, clears the consciousness and cleanses the pineal gland. Rapé is very good for focusing and maintaining better concentration during meditation.

The rapé ceremony is divided into three rapé sharings with three different themes:

Spirit/mind – body – heart

  • the mind and the spirit of the participant will be centered and cleared
  • the body will be purified of unhealthy, dense and blocking energies.
  • the heart chakra will be opened so that love and self-love can flow and your heart can find healing in itself

The ceremony is a powerful cleansing process and it may be possible to throw up during the ceremony, which is a desired effect. Emotions may come up and be released. After the ceremony you may feel a bit exhausted and tired, but after a good night’s sleep you feel usually very well, lighter, clearer, centered and charged with new energies.

During the ceremony, icaros – indigenous healing songs of the Shipibo-Conibo tribe – are sung, which work directly in the energy field of the participants. Pipe and Mapacho tobacco are used and, if necessary, dense energies can be withdrawn from the body with the hands.

In the final part of the ceremony, the eye drop medicine Sananga is shared (to those who wish to receive it).
Sananga – the so-called “Queen of the Forest” – is also a very potent medicine derived from the root and bark of the wavy Tabernaemontana shrub.
Dropped into the eyes, which are the windows of the soul, it can heal on both the physical and mental levels. It frees the mind from disturbing energies, helps to see more clearly, to focus and center better.
It can also alleviate or cure eye diseases.

The three different Rapé varieties that are used in this ceremony are very strong, intense and deeply cleansing Rapé´s. 
Also the Sananga that is shared in the ceremony is a very strong and potent one.

The ceremony takes around four hours and will be held by Sanken Tsoma (click on the name for more infos), who is working in the Inkanima lineage. Beside his guidance from the plants through master plant dietas he was taught and initiated by the Shipibo Maestro Inkanima (from the Peruvian Amazon) and the Inca / Q’ero Healer Don Eduardo Chura Apaza (rom the Peruvian Andes).
