Both sound therapy and vibrations have gained significant recognition in recent years, and we aim to provide you with a thorough understanding of its principles, techniques, and potential benefits. Whether you are a beginner or an expert at the ancient art of smudging, you may have experienced the frustration of lighting your preferred smudge stick, only to have it go out or stop burning a few seconds later. Sometimes the smudge stick simply won’t light at all, or even after lighting it repeatedly, it will not stay lit. In other situations, you discover that after the first or second use of a smudge stick, it becomes difficult to light the black stub at the end.

Some native tribes of the Americas have used naturally occurring mescaline in spiritual and religious ceremonies for thousands of years. That said, we can trace the popularity of mescaline over time by looking at its appearance in publications and Google searches. Published mentions steadily decreased over the next decade or so, possibly because of the rising popularity of other psychedelics like LSD and psilocybin. Mescaline is also illegal in the UK and Canada, as well as many European countries. However, peyote and other mescaline-containing cacti are generally legal to grow for ornamental purposes. The same is true in some Australian states, including Victoria and New South Wales, but not in Western Australia, Queensland, and the Northern Territory, where even San Pedro is illegal. Beyond cognitive effects, imperceptible doses of mescaline have also been shown to act as anti-inflammatory agents.
Many Rapéh novices and those new to the powder tobacco, begin self-applying the shamanic snuff as part of a daily spiritual practice often before yoga or a meditation ritual. The Netherlands is one country in Europe that never criminalized the use of magic mushrooms, so it is legal to source magic mushroom truffles there. One retreat in the Netherlands that has gained renown is Synthesis. Synthesis has facilitators, therapists, and counselors from various backgrounds who are dedicated to providing a healing experience for attendees. Synthesis offers preparation and journeying in a beautiful therapeutic setting that also supports the compassionate integration of the experience. While this can work in some people, it may not result in a “return to wholeness” in others.

Trying to heal from Lyme disease was just another way I was fulfilling an old unhealthy pattern.

Some people report difficulty sleeping the nights following and melatonin supplementation (~3mg at bedtime) or GABA can be beneficial in this regard. Bring a journal or voice recorder as you will likely experience increased awareness about your life, gain new insights and may wish to capture these. In the first part of the journey you will be fully immersed in the experience, however during the later stages or the morning after your iboga journey it will be progressively easier to record insights. Soak in your experience and write about it if you can, to retain as much as possible. This sacrament can release old trauma, and shift one’s understanding of self and the divine.
We take in information through stimuli in the form of input, process that information using complex neural networks, and then choose to act on the output. Firstly, use a long pointed stick and push it into the black stub part of the smudge stick. Some of the earliest uses of sound healing date back to around 40,000 years ago when the indigenous Australians used didgeridoos during their healing rituals. The Kuripe pipe is by far the most popular applicator available on the market, with many online stores stocking wide varieties of designs and styles. But for those wanting to experience the most traditional way of receiving Rapéh, the Tepi pipe is the shamanic tool of choice with its deep cultural roots in South American ceremonial rituals. At first glance, the handheld Kuripe may appear confusing with how to use it, many amusingly mistaking the ‘blow’ end for the ‘nostril’ end of the pipe. However, the Rapéh self-application process can be a simple and enjoyable experience when broken down into a step-by-step method used by many Rapéh enthusiasts.
