Frequently Asked Questions

Below are commonly asked questions for Awaken the Warrior seminars


What can you tell me about Sacred Medicines?

Awaken the Warrior draws upon several natural, safe, and legal medicines to deepen the mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual work required for modern men to sharpen their minds and open their hearts. I have worked extensively with each of these medicines which have enriched my development. Each one of these medicines are profound teachers when delivered in the correct setting. They bring to the surface of your consciousness profound insights, buried emotions, and unaddressed fears. Each medicine is unique, legal, and completely safe. Ancestral tribes in South America have been working with these medicines for hundreds and in some cases, thousands of years, to maintain a deep connection to their inner wisdom, heal trauma, and calm the mind. If you have questions about the use of plant and jungle medicines in Awaken the Warrior please see the questions below or contact me.


What is a Kambo/Frog Medicine?

Kambo is a jungle medicine traditionally used by tribes in the Amazon to prepare warriors for hunting. Kambo contains nine documented peptides that target and support the release of toxins from your body. Kambo is harvested from the "Giant Leaf" Frog without harm to the frogs in a sacred relationship between the frogs and tribal shamans. The Kambo experience is intense and profound in physical, emotional and spiritual aspects. Kambo is completely safe and 100% legal in the United States. A Kambo ceremony typically lasts 2 to 3 hours and the height of the experience lasts less than 30 minutes.

What is Hape Tobacco? 

Tobacco is a sacred plant o many tribes in the Amazon. Rapé (pronounced and colloquially spelled Hapé) is a snuff tobacco that is received through the nostrils. It is not smoked or ingested. It has a powerful cleansing effect and sharpens the mind into the present moment. The experience of receiving Hapé is sharp yet short. The effects are profound and grounding. Many practitioners work with Hapé daily to assist in meditation, clearing negative thoughts, and focusing the mind on the present moment. Hapé is completely safe and 100% legal in the United States. Hapé is often applied by a practitioner but can also self-administered.
