Custom Medicine Hats

Close your eyes, imagine your greatest self. Listen to your ancestors. Feel your heart full of gratitude. Release that which no longer serves you. Call in all that the universe is offering. The steam will open the hairs of the felt to receive the blessings for your life, in the service of all of your relations.

Hats have the ability to be tools of protection and connection. Throughout time, the donning of a head covering has always marked the separation between the sacred and the mundane.

This ceremony is the cornerstone of Hampui. In our time together, we will dream the design  of your hat. I will make it, entirely by hand, in our Berkeley workshop, using the finest 100x materials. My aim is to create a hat that will outlive us all, a blessing for your life and for the generations to come.

You are invited to bring your own objects or materials to the Ceremony. We can incorporate these elements into your hat or just hold them present to inform and inspire our vision.

To schedule your Medicine Hatting Ceremony, please complete the form at the bottom of this page. The ceremonies typically last around two hours and take place at the Hampui workshop in Berkeley or via video chat if you are not able to come to the studio.

Custom Medicine Hats cost $950 and are typically completed within three to six weeks of your ceremony.*

Before You, I am grateful, that compassionately, You have returned my soul to me.
