What to Expect

ITS BEST TO NOT HAVE ANY EXPECTATIONS BEFORE COMING TO OUR IBOGA RETREAT NOT ALL THE PARTICIPANTS WILL HAVE VISIONS, however it is important to understand that iboga is focused on deep healing and not ‘tripping’. Not having visions in your first ceremony is very common, however, persistence, patience and determination will often lead to  more visionary states.

The initial work during Iboga retreat is focused on cleansing and purifying your physical body and mind to prepare you for the next stages of your spiritual healing journey.
One reasonable expectation is that you may go through a strong physical and emotional purge with vomiting and/or possibly diarrhea. Some people have unrealistically high expectations of their first ceremonies. They expect to see breathtaking visions, which at this early stage is rare but can happen.

Spiritual Work

The sacred plant medicine ceremonies involve deep spiritual work, so it is natural to have some trepidation and anxiety, however, our providers/healers will be with you every step of the way to help make you as comfortable as possible during and after this process. Iboga is a master plant teacher that works to align your emotional, physical, mental, and spiritual discovery. It also has the power to open your mind to new ideas, clarify questions or internal struggles you may have, and heal your body and psyche.

For the second ceremony you may prepare a list of questions you may ask your soul.
If there are no questions we will still guide you to a life review and to meet your soul.

Following is a list of things you might want to bring with you to the retreat:

  • Comfortable clothes.
  • Natural sun protection.
  • Reusable water bottle.
  •  Bug spray.
  • Toiletries.
  • For spiritual shower please bring undergarments you can leave behind.
