Testimonials

Thank you so much for the gift this plant is bringing to the world and you helping share it. Your hospitality was wonderful, I felt pampered under your care, and your nutritious food during those days of deep and inner reflection. I had no expectation and I got so much out of these experiences. My life is simple but very rich with what I found inside. I hope the entire world get exposed to this natural gift.  

I was super happy to have the two of you there to support me, answer my questions and help me through the process in a smooth and kind way. Your environment is special, and I am also glad for the caring both of you provided after every session. I will do it again when time comes, I know there are more changes awaiting. My mind is at peace, and I have the new start I was always looking for. Basse !!

Blessings to both you

Sherry is a grounded and caring provider who has committed herself to proper training in the field.  She has travelled to Gabon 3 times for her personal healing as well as professional training, and works with sacred medicine directly from the Bwiti community in Gabon. She mentored under one of the top providers outside of Gabon for three years before going into private practice. For these reasons I trust being in her hands.  She creates a safe, non-judgmental atmosphere for the healing work. I felt I could freely talk to her about anything, as my issues, thoughts and feelings came up during the process. I feel she is particularly gifted working one-on-one with women.

"My experience of doing iboga with Sherry was full of unexpected results and surprises. I felt safe and well taken care of as Sherry hardly left my side during both ceremony nights. As a first time iboga user this was particularly reassuring to me. She was also very considerate in catering to my specific dietary needs. When I was ready to share some past experiences I had gone through, she was a very supportive listener.
I am grateful for all the lessons the retreat has taught me."

This was the most intense, transcendent, sometimes difficult, incredible, transformative, healing and magical experience I've ever had. There aren't descriptive words to explain what this is. Other than magic. Wise, old, earth magic.  Damn right, it's 10 years of therapy in a week! It couldn't be facilitated by a better person. Sherry's background in psychotherapy and holistic healing is the perfect marriage with being an Iboga provider. She is heavily trained and takes this work and the Bwiti tradition very seriously and so provides a very knowledgeable and safe experience. The whole week is run like a well oiled machine.  As seriously as Sherry takes her work, she also believes in the healing power of laughter and man, did we ever laugh! My face still hurts! It's a nice reprieve from doing this kind of deep work to be able to release via laughter. Her tough love approach, easy going nature, real authenticity and genuine passion for helping people heal make her absolutely destined for this kind of healing. There's no one I would have rather done this with and I could not recommend anyone more strongly for this.  What I have come away from this experience is too long of a list for a testimonial so I'll keep it to the biggest takeaways.  I have had no signs of Raynaud's phenomenon since my first ceremony (have lived with it daily for 10 years), the treatment for the autoimmune condition I have been working through is taking and I'm finally healing because my body no longer carries resistance associated to past trauma, I have a full toolbelt of skill sets now in order to maintain my incredible emotional state, I have no fear, anxiety, shame or anger in my body, I have found forgiveness in a way I never thought possible, I'm connected to love and joy on such a deeper level and I have a  knowledge and understanding that my life has shifted permanently in the right direction as a result of this experience.  I know, without a shadow of a doubt, that psychedelic plant medicine, and Iboga specifically, is the physical, mental and spiritual healing of the future. 

If you feel the call, don't wait.  ~ GK

I've been interested in trying plant medicine for some time now. I discovered the opportunity to work with Sherry and filled out the intake form. It was quite extensive, but rightfully so. After her review of the form, a contraindication was identified and she recommended we do not proceed. I'd like to thank Sherry for being thorough and taking great care of her clients' spiritual and physical health.

First of all, I would love to thank Sherry for everything she does. I have to say at first, I was very nervous and skeptical about doing Iboga for the first time not knowing what it was about or what would come from it but then I met Sherry and all my fears and nervousness about Iboga went away in a blink of an eye.  I felt such comfort. It’s like my spirit guide knew her already and was waiting for her to arrive to show me what she is capable of.  I have never felt so open and ready to receive this gift that she has introduced me to. The ceremonial journey I had was very intense and got straight to the root of my questions and problems. I can say this has helped me move forward in life. She is a blessing to all.  The way she helps people is truly amazing and I would definitely attend another Iboga ceremony when I have the need for it. Thank you, Sherry, for helping me solve the pieces to my puzzle.

It is hard to put into words and articulate how this medicine works and what it shows you.  Each experience is different and you may go in with certain expectations on what will be addressed and what will be shown to you.  May I say that it is best to leave all expectations out of it, because the medicine will determine how it addresses your issues and what issues are to be shown to you at all.  It truly is a magical healer!  After my first ceremony I felt so much lighter, like I had lost 50 lbs, of emotional baggage! The work you put in after the ceremony, healing and letting go of what has been holding you back from happiness is the most important work.  The medicine shows you what you need to do and the healing that you need to do.  Sherry is there with you to help you manage the feelings that come up and work through them, guiding you in the best way possible to release those feelings that are holding you back.  She is the real deal, when in her presence you know you are with someone who truly believes in her work and possesses special gifts that make her someone you will want to guide you through your journey.  Sherry genuinely respects the Bwiti tradition, and you feel like you are a participant of this tradition as well while in the ceremony.  You can trust that the medicine is being used in a traditional and sacred way, which was an important element to me.  I can’t say enough positive things about Sherry or the medicine and the whole experience.  If you feel called, do it!  You will not regret it!  I wish the whole world would do this work, it can heal the world!

When I think about my iboga journey that was guided by Sherry, I’m immediately brought to a place and consideration of her warmth and courage. Sherry is a friend and a sister through Bwiti tradition. She fiercely maintains the values of Missoko Bwiti and is unwavering in her commitment to strengthening herself so that she can be of ultimate service within ceremony. People often view ceremony as a time that is supposed to be strictly serious and sacred in nature. Sherry has shown me that we can have reverence for tradition and also have fun learning about ourselves with the medicine. It’s not that the ceremony is recreational by any means, but it’s a time in which we can see that our life is made up of laughter, dance, celebration, and light-heartedness so that we can be receptive to the teachings of Bwiti. This tradition is about learning how to live and live well. I’ve been locked up in psychological trauma for certain portions of my life, and Sherry has taught me that forgiveness is the most powerful learning I can offer myself. We’re not meant to hold regret or judgments in our hearts, and when we can forgive ourselves and others, it opens us to really recognizing our value as sovereign beings.

 

Forgiveness is made tangible in ceremony. We often look at esteemed virtues and principles as abstract in nature… something barely out of reach. Sherry will show you through personal testimony and traditional storytelling that these things are within immediate reach as well as application. When you sit around the fire with her, you’re of course sitting with a teacher who is committing their life to Bwiti, but know too that you’re also communing with a friend who will encourage and guide you toward activating and thriving in all the unique ways that you yourself know deep down is completely possible.

My experience with Iboga was amazing - I got to the root cause of my issues I couldn't get to through therapy, consequently leading to further insights. Sherry's assistance throughout the process was helpful and supportive; the fact that she has completed spiritual psychotherapy training is definitely a plus during the integration part of the retreat. Also, Sherry took care of every small detail, making my experience safe and comfortable. As a person, she is fun, and real, passionate about what she does, and her personality is an additional asset!

My Iboga ceremonies, guided by Adele and Sherry have been beautiful and gentle while at the same time firmly bringing forth traumas and emotions I didn't even know impacted me.  
From the moment I sent the first text to Adele of my intent to attend the full moon women's retreat conducted by Ibogawaken and Ibogatemple, I have been the recipient of support beyond my expectations.  Both Adele and Sherry have the skills to hold space, guide a journey and coach integration with the knowledge given to Bwiti trained providers. 
The Bwiti Iboga ceremony is beautiful, gentle, compassionate and healing.  I have healed my asthma and no longer require medication.  But much, much more than physical healing, I healed significant traumas, from electro shock therapy, emotions attached to childhood sexual abuse and emotions I did not even know were impacting my body. 
Before embarking on an Iboga journey, please ask the credentials of those who may be providing your journey.  Strongly consider Ibogawaken and Ibogatemple, both Sherry and Adele work within the integrity of the Bwiti tradition.  The food was AMAZING, your anticipated and real needs are met on the spot and you will be fully supported in your journey.  You will be cared for, and will be enveloped in love.

I’ve been on a soul search journey for a very long time, a journey that had many stops and had led me to experience ayahuasca and just in the past year, iboga. Of course, I have done my research and have asked the shaman who basically brought iboga to the Western world to recommend a person who is trained to work with this sacred plant and could be trusted to properly guide people through this intense journey. And that’s how I’ve met wonderful Sherry, who’s done very intensive and advanced training in Africa to be a provider, after recognizing the limitations of the western psychology applied “by the book”. 

I am forever grateful for having met Sherry to guide me through this experience- and I am not going to talk about my iboga experience as I don’t want you to think yours will be the same, as we are all unique individuals- and hold space for me 24/7 during my week at the resort. Her dedication in getting to know me and to understand where I am in order to help me break through this process was outstanding. She has an amazing ability to uncover your hidden issues that need healing and bring them out to the surface in a subtle, loving, and sometimes funny way. Yes, Sherry will not only hold space for you, she will help you dig into your issues to find solutions or healing. And I have to mention that when you do plant medicine, you have to be prepared to process years of trauma, and this is not an easy process. Sherry’s support and nurturing care made it a very smooth experience for me and maybe one of the most amazing weeks of my life!”

Sherry's down to earth approach and delightful sense of humor, provided the safe and loving container to awaken my healing. We got to the root cause of my pain and suffering, the traumatic sexual abuse at a tender age. The ceremonies were so beautiful beyond my imagination and I feel truly nourished and deeply blessed. I have finally returned home to my body and connected with my soul.  My soul is not just singing, but dancing now!

Before working with Sherry, I was searching for the missing piece in my personal and spiritual growth. As a master NLP coach, I have amazing tools that I work with, and yet there was a persistent nagging feeling that something was not quite complete in my own spiritual empowerment journey. During our ceremonies, I felt cared for and I was able to finally understand and accept my authentic self with love and gratitude. Over the years I’ve submerged myself in the world of empowerment and personal growth, and have worked with many mentors, coaches and healers. Working with Sherry stood out as a magical transformation that has not only helped me in my personal life, but has also helped me to understand and connect with my own clients with more compassion than ever before. She helped me shift the way I relate with myself and others as well as how I see the world - all within one magical week. I cannot even begin to express how grateful I am for deciding to work with her, and for saying YES to this psycho-spiritual journey. If you’re thinking about working with her, my advice is- just do it. You will come out of it with so much insight and compassion for yourself that you might not even know you need it yet.

The experience I had on Iboga, provided by Sherry and Adele was incredible. It was definitely transformative for me. This spiritual path is what I came for.  You can and will process your emotional experience quickly, going through the steps towards your acceptance and peace of mind. Healing your emotional wounds old or new. 

I am grateful for the opportunity to experience Iboga.  Highly recommend the experience.  Be fearless and take the leap of faith.

Sherry guided me in two ceremonies three weeks ago. The experience so far seems to have been truly life changing. The medicine allowed me deep insights into myself that I didn't think were possible. It helped me release so much conflict, sadness, and shame that my body physically responded and felt amazing. I can also tangibly notice that I live with more joy and love. This has impacted my relationships, my profession, and my day to day habits all for the better. I have also noticed that my wife experienced profound impacts herself, including instantly healing a condition deemed incurable by Western medicine. She has not, for almost three weeks now, had a single instance of symptoms that used to be daily. 

 

Sherry made us both feel very comfortable and supported throughout the retreat and everything ran very smoothly. It is obvious that she has deep training and also an innate gift for this kind of healing. Sherry had a great balance of compassion and being a straight shooter all mixed with heavy doses of humour (lots of belly laughing... not an easy feat with me). I absolutely recommend connecting with Sherry to discuss if this journey is right for you.

 

~ ALK

The Iboga experience has been life changing for me, giving me answers & healing I have been seeking my whole life. I appreciate and I'm glad I had 3  therapy sessions with Sherry before my Iboga experience as it helped me to prepare for the medicine and set my intentions.  Sherry was great throughout the whole experience and supported me every day both emotionally and physically when I needed it.  I loved the support on the integration days which included nature walks which helped me to process and digest everything. Sherry was accommodating to my nutritional challenges, which was great. I would definitely recommend this experience with Sherry to anyone who is looking for deep healing.
