We honor the transformative experience that Iboga treatment can bring by offering a guided weekend retreat using a preparation that contains the natural, whole plant version of this medicine. We have three female healers trained in plant medicine and energy work that facilitate our Iboga retreats. They help participants set intentions, release negative energies, and rebalance themselves. While ceremonial in nature, we do not try to replicate a traditional, communal Bwiti Iboga ceremony.
Our Iboga retreats are held in the presence of our medical staff—two ER doctors, two nurses, and a therapeutic counselor—in case of emergency. Participants arrive for the Iboga retreat on Friday, spend the weekend participating in the Iboga ceremony and integrating the Iboga treatment, and leave on Monday morning.
