All of my sacred tools are handmade by Latin American artisans and carry spirit and powerful energy to assist you on your path. Each piece is unique and made with elements and materials of nature, so there may be some minor differences between the one you receive and the one(s) in the photos and video.
A solid and beautifully carved crystal/stone Kuripe with a Condor Head. This piece is of the highest quality. The pipe has a Coca Leaf engraved onto its body to honour and call in the spirit of this most sacred master teacher plant with many magical abilities and properties.
The Condor head connects us to the spirit of this powerful 'Thunderbird Of The Heavens' that is very sacred in the Andean tradition (and many others). Just like the Eagle, the Condor is often called upon to assist in shamanic practices and rituals. They both come from the East, the place of the rising sun, and teach us how to break down our limits and trust in our potential to reach higher and higher. It is believed the Condor ties the earth and heavenly realms together, and it is he who carries the dead to the underworld. The Condor is a seer, cutting through the veils of illusion, always able to perceive the bigger picture. This majestic bird symbolises power, leadership, goodness, health, devotion, justice, and wisdom. It is also the national bird of Columbia, Chile, Bolivia, Argentina, Peru, and Ecuador and appears on their national coat of arms.
The tool we use to serve Rapé is just as important as the Rapé itself. Each Tepi and Kuripe in my shop is handmade by Peruvian or Brazilian craftsmen with materials and elements that have unique properties and qualities to assist in our healing practices. The tool and the Rapé join forces and work as a team. It is important to understand that we too are medicine and part of the team that comes together when working with sacred plants. We have to look after ourselves as such if we want to lift ourselves and those around us higher. We have to do the work. The plants aren't there to do it for us. They are our teachers and guides, but what matters most, is how we apply the gifts they bestow upon us to our everyday lives.
