I hope that by sharing this information on how to properly work with and administer rapé to yourself and others, we can begin to overcome the abuse of plant medicine through casual thought, something that is all too prevalent around the world. Once we are able to enter into the present moment and set an intention of healing, we can once again cultivate a healing relationship with one of the most powerful plant medicines on this plant.
What follows is the first of a series of posts I intend on doing over the coming year documenting my experiences supporting (and eventually partaking in) the Lakota Vision Quest. It is also a documentation of my experiences within the Eagle Condor Prophecy and how it stands to be the new myth we need to support the growing global consciousness that is emerging.

If you are anything like me than you also have more than just a passing interest in the esoteric, counterculture, the psychedelic and the all around weird. If so, then I think you’re in the right place. I’ll be writing and posting about a number of different things on a variety of topics in some vain attempt at understanding what it is I actually believe.
