One of the biggest names in pop today, Canadian singer Shawn Mendes, 23, is enjoying a vacation in Hawaii to explore his spiritual side. Last Friday, the 8th, ex-girlfriend camila hair clicked when a yoga teacher blows a pipe into his nose during a shamanic meditation ritual.
The powder used in practice is made from medicinal plants, seeds, tree cuttings and leaves. Rapé, as it is called, is a legalized product on Hawaiian soil and that promises to ward off bad energies, detoxify the body and harmonize the chakras.
In the picture, Mendes is next to a youtuber Hitomi Mochizukiwho guides the exercises and usually shares with his more than one million followers his routines in nature.
As eccentric as they may seem, Canadians are not the only ones participating in shamanic rituals. Like him, Serbian performing artist Marina Abramovic and Brazilian singer Luiz Caldas already talked about their experiences.
