Interestingly enough, the first time I was served rapé was in an ayahuasca ceremony. The immediacy of the transformation, the connection to the Grandfather & Grandmother Spirits, and the subtly within the profundity I was experiencing changed my life in the best ways possible. The only safe application of Kambo is through minor blister points made in the skin to which the secretion is applied. The burn is not deep, with only the epidermis removed, allowing an entry “gate” for the Kambo into the body. Typically 3-5 “gates” are opened in the skin for an introductory Kambo session. The client is asked to drink about 1/2 liter of water before applying the Kambo dots to the open gates.
It is easy to learn how to play music or to prepare the fire or to lead someone on a guided journey. One cannot graduate to becoming a Nima until they have become completely whole themselves.

Hapé is traditionally used by blowing fine ground-up powder into the nostrils with sacred instruments. These tools look like pipes that can be carved from bone or wood or be a piece of bamboo or reed. They’re also lined with crystals, unique designs, and other spiritual practices that make them unique to the user.
Virtually all labs require a specific test for the substance, so unless your employer is a real stickler and specifically worried that you’ve been frequenting peyote ceremonies, you should be fine. Osmond had been investigating mescaline’s molecular similarity to adrenaline as well as its potential for treating mental illness and alcohol dependency. He supplied it to Huxley in 1953, who wrote The Doors of Perception about his mescaline trip the following year. In 1955, he administered mescaline to British Member of Parliament Christopher Mayhew as part of a BBC documentary. Unfortunately, while Mayhew described the effects in glowing, even mystical terms, the footage was never broadcast. Otherwise, both mescaline and peyote are strictly controlled as Schedule I substances. Other mescaline-containing cacti , such as San Pedro, are legal only for ornamental purposes.
The (Rarámuri) Indians, for example, have used small amounts of peyote while hunting, allowing them to stalk deer for days on end without rest. Microdosing is the act of consuming sub-perceptual amounts of a psychedelic substance. Some enthusiasts also report that microdosing mescaline has helped them heighten their spiritual awareness and enhance their senses. Some researchers have found that the antidepressant benefits of mescaline correlate to a subjects’ willingness to engage with the experience, to face themselves and to act upon the insights received.
Psychedelic Therapy, Ancient Healing Methods, & Plant Medicine: Interview with Wallace Murray
According to some Native Americans, the proper use of peyote renders all other medicines superfluous. A 2005 study into the ceremonial use of peyote among Native American populations found there to be no detrimental long-term effects. For many, mescaline produces an experience of depersonalization or the dissolution of the ego; everything, including oneself, feels unified. This experience can give rise to clear and connected thoughts, self-realization, empathy, and euphoria, each of which can feel profound and deeply meaningful. Your physical environment, as well as your own body, may distort in size and form.
Of course, we cannot generalize current usage statistics from such limited data, but it does give us some idea of its popularity relative to other substances. Unfortunately, precise usage statistics for mescaline aren’t available because surveys tend to lump it together with other substances like LSD, psilocybin, and MDMA.
The Effects of This Sacred Tobacco
Structurally, it is similar to LSD and is often used as a benchmark hallucinogen when comparing psychedelics. Now that you know the core principles behind the Yuen Method, you must wonder if this method is as effective as they say. To answer your question, you must first keep in mind that all individuals are unique, and our weaknesses are split over a wide spectrum. The Yuen Method of healing works on the ancient concepts of the Chinese Shaolin temple energy, in collaboration with western knowledge of healing. This energetic technique is a unique blend of anatomy, physiology, structural analysis, energetic technique, quantum physics, Qi, and Shen Gong training. Make sure to not loosen the leaves too much as this will create large flames and too much burn. Once your smudging session is complete, make sure that all the embers and leaves are fully extinguished.
I learned how we are all a perfect balance of mind, body, and spirit; and healing cannot come from attending only to physical symptoms. I created tools to work with my body’s energy system, and focused on releasing emotional baggage I’d been carrying my whole life. In whatever form it is consumed, a mescaline experience is highly hallucinogenic and lends itself to self-exploration. Many people report that it also creates a uniquely empathic effect in the user, making it useful for personal healing.
