To improve your experience during your rapéh ceremony, you can follow these traditional steps.
Take 1-3 portions of rapéh from the bottle with your favourite blend.
Use your rapéh spoon to measure your portion.
1 spoon = 1 portion
Put your rapéh into the longer part of your kuripé
Inhale deeply and hold your breath.
Stick the longer side of your kuripé into your left nostril , and the shorter part into your mouth.
Blow the rapéh as if you would blow out a candle.
Exhale with you nose to clean out residue.
After a short pause, repeat steps one to three, blowing into your right nostril this time.
In a ceremonial setting this represents rebirth, as everything dark and unnecessary goes away with the first blow into the left nostril. The second blow serves to fill your body & mind with positive life energy.
Blow your nose 1-2 min. after the ceremony
Relax, meditate, breathe in and out.
