Hapé is a sacred medicine used before performing deep healings and prayers. This powerful medicine contains a profound force to connect directly with the creator, the forces of the forest, and the deep healing this medicine provides. Hapé is also used for protection, and it also sharpens the senses and focus.
There is a lot of use of Hapé within the medicine community, but there is also a lot of misunderstanding and a lack of knowledge on how to work with this medicine correctly, and in a safe way for the person receiving it, as well as the person administering it. There has been an enormous rise in the number of people using this medicine in recent years. Although hapé can provide deep healing and purification, improper use can lead to complications, if it’s not served correctly. There is a right and wrong way to work with this medicine and this is the important step a lot of people who decide to serve this medicine are missing.
Over the years, I’ve had a lot of conversations with people who have shared negative experiences they’ve had with people administering hapé, because of not being served properly. You absorb the life force of the person administering hapé when you receive it from them, and unless they are fully aware of how to work with the energies of hapé, this can have a huge impact on the recipient. There is a lack of training, and a lot of people simply decide to start serving it without any proper knowledge of the power of this medicine.
Most people who serve hapé have not had any guidance, or training, and are therefore unaware of the negative impact they can have on the person receiving. I get a lot of requests from people who want to know how to properly serve hapé and for several years now I have been leading hapé training and initiations to pass on the teachings and wisdom of the sacred medicine, so it can be served with absolute respect.
A Hapé initiation is a shamanic initiation, and it is not the easiest thing to go through, it is a very deep process, and a lot can be healed and released during this process.
WHO IS THE INITATION FOR?
Hapé initiation is for anyone who would like to deepen their connection with Hapé and learn how to work with this medicine properly and traditionally. This is ideal for anyone who would like to facilitate hapé circles or work with hapé with their clients, or even with themselves! It is now, more than ever before, crucial to have skilled facilitators and appropriate training. This is an opportunity for you to feel confident, and powerful, with a new sense of direction as a Guardian of Tobacco. This hapé training and initiation is also for people who would just simply like to learn more about this powerful medicine and experience the energetic healing of an initiation.
