Huaira Sacha - Chacapa

Huaira Sacha - Chacapa

Leaves, Peru

Chakapa - Shakapa - Wind of the jungle is a kind of palm frond made from the leaves of Pariana stenolemma tutin. It is used bei Shamans in the Amazon basin as a rhythm and healing instrument during Ayahuasca ceremonies. The sound of leaves calms the participants and purifies the energy in the room.

 

In a healing the Huairasacha – Chacapa is rubbed and rattled over or near the patient’s body while singing an icaro (medicine song). This cleanses, refreshes and harmonises the energy field. The shamans have a wide range of movements which produce different sounds and energies.

 

Please note:
The Huairasacha or Chacapa will not arrive to you as shown in the photo.The bundles we receive often look dishevelled and/or bent and only if you follow our care instructions will they turn the bundle of leaves into "your" Chacapa.

 

What you do with a Chacapa to "rejuvenate" it: Hold the leaves for a few minutes into a bowl with water, you can also wash the leaves carefully with your fingers a bit inside the water. Then take it out and shake it a bit to reduce the water inside. Now you can flatten the leaves, and hang the chakapa for about half a day in a cool & shady place to let it slowly (!) dry. During this period it´s good to flatten  the leaves again every couple of hours - otherwise they tend to roll a bit. This process is also good after a long time of use or when you want to make a "new" one out of two old ones etc..
