How to blow Rapé with Kuripé you can watch on video down on page.
The Hapé’s applicators, also known as “Tepi” and “Kuripe” are sacred instruments of indigenous origin generally made from wood, bamboo or bones and can carry ornaments such as feathers, crystals and seeds around it. It is from these elements, specifically from the animal or plant used to make the applicator, that the natives make the connection with nature, using this force and blowing techniques to apply the Hapé.
The use of Hapé aims to cleanse the energy field and the physical body, sharpen the mind, and maintain concentration and focus. It is during this medicinal practice that the Tepi and Kuripe gains prominence, because those instruments assist the use of hapé in a correct manner, avoiding any type of injury to the respiratory system.
Also according to indigenous traditions, the Hapé should be applied in both nostrils so that the person’s energy field does not become unbalanced.
The Kuripe is a self-applicator, meaning that the person him/herself blows into his/her nostril.
Within the indigenous tradition, the hapé is not “inhaled”. It is always blown.
Blown into the nostrils by a shaman or another person or by yourself provokes a strong reaction in the inexperienced ones. Its effect is fast and afterwards the person feels a great sense of well-being and disposition, not to mention the cleaning of the airways that it provides. It is also used for hunting, to remove “Panema” (laziness) and in the ceremony with Ayahuasca.
