About ShamanicArtMedicine

How the Shamanic Art & Medicine have lead us to freedom...

Robert and I are both shamanic practitioners, we work with Sacred Medicine Plants, we coach and mentor people on their spiritual journeys and help them to integrate their experiences from shamanic ceremonies.

For few years I was also a massage and energy therapist, but when I got pregnant in 2014 I felt like I needed to put that on hold, so I asked the Great Spirit to give me something new to do, that would allow me to stay at home, work in quiet environment, close to my baby and ideally, if it would be something creative.

It didn't take long till the answers came back... A friend of mine asked if I knew where she can buy a kuripe pipe. We kept looking for something nice online, but couldn't find anything we'd like. Then she said: "why don't you make it for me? You're quite skilled, I'm sure you'll figure it out."
And so I did :)
I found the materials I needed, Robert thought about the construction (he's a carpenter by trade, how handy!) and that's how we created our first kuripe.

Of course our friend took the pipe with her to all possible ceremonies and festivals, and soon after, more orders started to come in. However, it wasn't until we opened the Etsy Shop, when Shamanic Art Medicine really took off! I was shocked to see so much interest all over the world. So far we have sent our creations to all continents, except for Antarctica :)

I honestly cannot tell you how much joy it brings us to have this shop, we are super grateful! Not only it is such a fun to do, but we keep coming up with new ideas. This year we added tins for tobacco/herbs/snuff, and I also started creating enchanted Talismans and Bracelets, mostly from crystals and polymer clay.

Overall, since we began to work like this, our lives have completely changed; we are able to be at home, together, with our baby, and work from anywhere we want! In 2017 we moved to south of Spain, where we can enjoy sunshine, sea, mountains and beautiful warm weather all year long.
This to me is freedom...

HOW WE MAKE THE PIPES?

As shamanic practitioners, you may imagine that we see things quite holistically and what's important for us, is not just the external quality, so a lot of effort goes into every piece of art we create. :)

Since Robert used to be a carpenter (and he was very good and precise with his craft!) he's the one who makes sure that all parts and well cut, hold strong and are well polished, on the inside and outside. By drilling the bamboo inside and smoothing it afterwards, he ensures that the snuff powder flows through effortlessly and doesn't get stuck inside.

After the construction is ready, I then decorate the pipes.

I use different mixtures of clay, twine (all natural - usually cotton, linen or hemp), wooden beads, glass beads, feathers and my favourite - crystals! I can make the pipes quite simple, rustic, with not much hanging on them; but I can also sculpture animals on them, to represent desired totems and power animals; I can make them very colourful and shiny - as one of our customers called it - " a shamanic bling" :D ...however way you like it!

Anything that goes on a pipe, is hand-crafted by me; so any animals, leaves etc., are not bought anywhere and stuck onto the pipe, they're made from scratch.
All pipes are typically varnished at the end, with a water-based wood varnish (one that's safe on baby toys), but if someone prefers their pipe to stay matt, we can skip this process (I do recommend it though, it protects the artwork and makes the pipe easier to clean)

Recently Robert came up a great idea to get a pyrography tools and decorate our pipes with some beautiful ornaments. I think they look great, although take quite a lot of time...

Lastly - the invisible work... When we sit down to make shamanic tools, it is vital that we're in a good state of mind; we try to hold a high intention, for the pipes to work as instruments of healing, spreading light and love amongst those, who come to contact with them. Once they're done, we always smudge them before sending; we use tobacco smoke, palo santo and white sage to purify their energy.

We feel that by sharing the work between us, we actually create great balance of feminine and masculine energies; it is quite symbolic and hopefully adds more harmony to the end result.

HOW I MAKE THE JEWELLERY?

All the Talismans and bracelets are typically made to order for very specific healing intentions. I tune to the person's aura and I channel healing energy for them, so making the jewellery is a process of creating, but also distant healing at the same time. The person who makes the request usually gives me only rough idea of what they want in terms of design, and leave it up to my intuition; what is important however, is what do they want the talisman or bracelet to do - this could be harmonising, healing, grounding, working on specific issue (cleansing or healing specific place in the body for example), opening heart, third eye, crown, connecting with source, attracting more abundance etc.
When I connect at spirit level, I often receive visions, guidance or feelings about the receiver and what they need, occasionally I'll channel a message for them from their Guides and/or their Higher Self.

As we keep growing and evolving, we also strive to improve our work in any possible way; if you have any ideas or suggestions for us, we'd be very happy to hear about them! Feel free to write to us with any comments.

Care instructions

How to clean your Kuripe / Tepi?

On the outside, most of our pipes are varnished, therefore cleaning them if fairly easy, you can simply wipe off any dust or dirt with a damp cloth.

If your Kuripe or Tepi becomes clogged inside, you can use a little brush (like for cleaning smoking pipe). If you're going to use a wet brush, just make sure you don't dry your pipe too rapidly, bamboo may crack if it experiences too dramatic humidity or temperature changes. It's best to leave it to dry on its own in a room temperature.

If your pipe has feathers and you wish to clean them, you can wash them very gently in warm water with a little bit of soap. Leave to dry naturally afterwards.

How to clean my talisman?
Wipe gently with a damp cloth.
