Delve Deeper, with Kambo & Rapeh Medicine
Join me in Ceremony, connecting with Natural Medicine of Kambo and Rapeh.
Rapeh is a sacred tobacco, used to deepen meditation and align the energies of human and divine.
And Kambo will facilitate deep cleansing and release of physical and emotional barriers.
Prepare to feel brand new!
What is Kambo?
Kambo is the name of a secretion that comes from a tree frog that is applied topically, traditionally by indigenous tribes of the Amazon. This has historically been done to heal the body, clear the mind, and sharpen senses and intuition.
During a Kambo Ceremony, this natural medicine is applied to the skin, after very small superficial burns are made with a hot incense stick. Only the top layer is burned, and then the Kambo is applied, allowing the medicine to communicate with the brain via the lymphatic system.
The Kambo contains a mixture of bioactive peptides and neuropeptides, which have a powerful effect on the brain and body, allowing the body to heal itself.
What could a Kambo Ceremony do for you?
Join Jennifer to be initiated by three medicines, Rapeh, Kambo, and Sananga. Jennifer has trained extensively to offer a more graceful, divine way of healing and surrender with each of these magical medicines. Join her to invite radical transformation and peace into your world!
How do Ceremonies support the Medicine?
Kambo is used in a ceremonial way, either 1:1 or in a private group setting. Participants are invited to receive sacred, ceremonial tobacco, Rapeh, which enhances feelings of relaxation, peace, and grounding.
Guided meditation and music help to connect initiates with the medicine, as well as set clear intentions for the experience. Clarity of intention helps to facilitate deeper healing as well as a more graceful release.
When the individual or group is ready, small burns are carefully made on the surface of the skin, and the Kambo is applied. Your practitioner remains close to the participants, in order to support and facilitate the releases, emotionally and physically. Each step of the ceremony is thoroughly explained, and we proceed with respect and care.
Once the release/purge is complete, participants are supported in their integration, caring for the physical body, and fed a light meal.
Effects of Kambo, during and after Ceremony
Each initiate can experience a variety of symptoms of the medicine at work!
What most people feel is a rise in temperature, usually in the upper body and head. A rapid heart rate is common, as well as changes in blood pressure. Many feel tingling in extremities or other parts of the body, as well as sleepiness, or excitement.
The experience usually lasts around 20-40 minutes in total, and while there can be some intense discomfort or unpleasantness, it passes.
Within 20 minutes of application, the purge happens, which can come with nausea, an urge to use the toilet, or both. Some other temporary effects can be swelling of the lips/face, reddening of the skin, dry mouth, some muscle tension, and light-headedness. Once the purge has finished, these effects recede.
Within thirty minutes of the ceremony, most participants feel a profound sense of calm and peace (thanks to all of the peptides!), providing a calm and often blissful feeling. We follow each ceremony with some light food to help ground the energy of the body and mind.
In the following days, initiates often feel stronger, lighter, more healthy, more aligned. The mind often feels clearer and calmer, with a heightened alertness, (this is why this medicine has been used by tribesmen before a hunt). Other reported effects are elevated mood, decreased stress, increased mental and physical stamina, and better focus.
Sapo-style & experiencing Kambo processes in a gentler way
The traditional way of experiencing Kambo includes drinking 1-2 litres of water before the ceremony begins. Consuming this much water can feel uncomfortable, and increase nausea throughout the process.
I facilitate Sapo-style Ceremonies, which is a gentler process for each initiate. In fact, the vast majority of people who have experienced the traditional Kambo-style prefer the Sapo-style, and choose this new way to process with the medicine.
Sapo-style also involves drinking water, but after the Kambo medicine has been applied, and later in the ceremony. As a result, nausea is often reduced or eliminated until the beginning of the purge. This allows you to be more present with your body and with the medicine as it works on each level, emotionally, energetically, and physically.
How do I know its the 'right time' for me to connect with Kambo?
There are so many reasons to choose Kambo, but here are a few of the most common-
*Preparation for a medicine ceremony: using Kambo in the days or weeks before a plant medicine ceremony can make that experience infinitely better. Kambo will help to clear your body, mind, and spirit, so that when you sit with another medicine, you are in the best energy possible to receive guidance and insight, to heal the past, and to understand more about yourself and your future.
*Detox the body: Kambo will support you in detoxifying and clearing your body, physically as well as many other levels. Many initiates like to sit with Kambo in the spring (when our bodies naturally enter detox), after periods in inactivity or unhealthy choices (food, alcohol, etc), or when they are feeling heavy, full, or weighed down.
*Boost in mental and physical energy: The peptides present in Kambo address a multitude of issues within the body, which can support the skin, boost the immune system, reduce inflammation (the major source of disorder in the body), speed recovery, and clear the mind

What are initiates saying after ceremonies?
"I am now very aware of all the places I have been leaking energy and giving my power away and for once, I haven't pushed it all down and just got on with it. I have started saying NO and telling people how I feel. It has been scary, but I feel a sense of empowerment that I didn't before and I am definitely feeling it is a result of the Kambo. I want to thank you for what has really been a life changing experience Jennifer."
"I feel so at peace with myself its so so amazing...Thank you"
"Jen is uber intuitive and connected so she was tuning in and letting me know things were releasing. She held the space beautifully, it is very important to do this with someone you completely trust and who can keep you on track. Would I do it again, most definitely. There are many benefits to it, and unlike other plant medicines there are no trips or hallucinations, it's over and done with before you know it, and the worst thing that can happen is nothing and the best thing can be untold revelations and healing."
