Iboga Wellness Center, located in beautiful Costa Rica, offers spiritual retreats and detoxification programs to provide people with a rich opportunity to heal themselves on all levels of the body, mind, and spirit. Our emphasis is on the spiritual because healing is much deeper when problems are resolved on the spiritual level first. Physical problems are often the result of deeper underlying spiritual issues.
We work with the powerful plant medicine, Iboga. This medicine comes from a small tree that grows naturally in western equatorial Africa, primarily in the country of Gabon. Iboga has been used by the people of this area for countless generations as a tool to heal the body, mind, and spirit. These people are called the Bwiti. All of our Iboga providers have been trained in Costa Rica and Gabon by a Bwiti shaman and have been initiated into the Bwiti through ceremony.
We do not use the pharmaceutical, Ibogaine. Ibogaine is extracted from the Iboga tree (Tabernanthe Iboga) but the extraction process causes it to lose many of the amazing properties of pure, natural Iboga. Chemically, Ibogaine is 1 of 12 alkaloids that occur in the Iboga tree’s medicine. We believe that Iboga in its natural form, with all of its alkaloids, is the best way to use this medicine. It is the way Nature made it and it contains organic keys that provide access to the spirit of Iboga.
Our providers perform ceremonies that are similar to those done in Gabon, but oriented to people from North America and Europe. Most of our staff is from the United States, but we have worked with people from all over the world. Everyone on our staff shares a common goal to provide an experience that will truly help you and allow you to be able to know yourself better.
