This is a traditional Bwiti ceremony. In preparation, one day before the spirits are invoked so that they are present and attend this celebration. This ceremony lasts from 12 to 14 hrs. Iboga is taken as the main bridge to connect people with the spirit realm. When the ceremony starts offerings are made from the participants to the spirits and to the shamans. This is followed by a community discussion of important matters and the practice of passing the ancestral Bwiti teachings. When the sun is out they finish the beautiful ceremony by celebrating all life and new beginnings by dancing, singing and making music.
Coming to an Iboga retreat at Discover Iboga Church Of America has been the best thing I have done for myself. I was able to meet my soul, understand "me" better in one week than I have in my 33 years. My path to happiness is clear. Diana and Carol are so sweet, they where there every step of my journey, their counseling and fire talks where a major part of my transformation. I recommend everyone to go to Discover Iboga, you truly deserve to be happy!!
I was in a very dark place in my life, I had been addicted to several pharmaceutical medications and street drugs, with the support of friend and family I was in and out of detox clinics trying to find a way out of this slavery. But I never could stay clean. I went to Carol and Diana as a last hope, since the beginning their love, patience and passion for what they do made me feel so welcomed. After the very first ceremony I felt disgusted of the drugs i was consuming daily and felt a sense of freedom, for once I felt i don't really need them anymore. On my second session I was able to deal some life events I didn't even remember well, which I'm 100% sure where the reasons I was so deep into drugs. I'm a new person, I left that addict man I was before buried in Florida. I will go again for a retreat! now I need to integrate the change on my daily life and search for self growth, to find out more of that person I want to be.
These girls are amazing! Their medicine, their teachings and energy have created a profound change in my life. My life review was an experience I could never imagine. Now i feel empowered, secure, happy to be alive and looking forward to continue my journey in this planet.
Iboga has been the medicine my soul has been searching for. I have been taking other plant medicines all over the world in search for answers. I had suffered with mild anxiety and chronic depression since my teen years. During my journey I was able to reach my higher self, hug my soul and talk to our Creator. I have cleared questions that I have wondered all my life, and I was able to let go of the ideas and memories that were causing me to fall constantly in a cycle that I now have broken. Thank you Discover Iboga Church
