What Is Iboga?

Twenty years ago, our teacher, a 10th generation Missoko Bwiti Shaman called Moughenda, was advised by the medicine to open it up to the west as the world is in need of deep healing. We work closely with Moughenda as our Bwiti teacher and mentor.

Used in a Shamanic traditional Bwiti psycho-spiritual ceremony setting, this is a powerful sacred plant teacher that has the ability to heal the mind, body and soul. It is a Central African Shrub root containing many active alkaloids. The root of the plant is taken orally and can be ingested fresh, made into a tea, or it can be taken in powder form. Iboga has psychoactive properties, and it gently stimulates the nervous system by cleaning/polishing your neurotransmitters which brings them back to their original default setting – ensuring they are firing and transmitting properly. 

For this reason, Iboga is known to be one of the most powerful medicinal plants for treating addictions. Iboga gives profound insights, gives clarity to one's life and to the truth of oneself. Iboga will keep working with you in terms of insights for months after your retreat, as you reintegrate into your daily life. Iboga can promote: Self-actualization, empower self-growth, improve relationships, and reduce emotional suffering.

This master plant teacher was used by the Pygmies, traditionally called Babongo; known to be one of the oldest African tribes. These tribes lived primitively, as hunters and gatherers where money holds no value. Some of these tribes are continuing to live the traditional way today and can be found deep in the jungles of Africa. The Babongo tribe used Iboga for thousands of years for ritualistic and healing purposes and then passed down the knowledge to the Bwiti tradition and its tribes in Gabon, Africa.
