Babongo Bwete Miobe Iboga Ceremony GHINEO A NZIAMBE (God's Mirror)
Iboga is a spirit that connect you directly to your soul. Iboga, being a root, takes you inward so that you can learn to live in this physical reality with joy and spontaneity, through a direct connection to your soul. Iboga is not a medicine, it is you, it provides a conduit to your soul and through this connection it can heal all physical, emotional and spiritual maladies. This is because we live in heaven on earth where thoughts create our experience, Iboga shows you this. It is intense but when used in a true traditional context, as taught by the first national people, the Babongo, it allows you to heal yourself. It is a powerful tool for spiritual advancement and has applications to all facets of LIFE!
We are the only people from the west that have been trained with the Babongo People in one of the original branches of Bwete – called Miobe. The Iboga Ceremony we offer is called “Ghieno A Nziambe” which translates as God’s Mirror From God’s mirror you can see and discover aspects of oneself and gain a new understanding of the creation of all
IBOGA´s healing capacities are universal. Become awareness in totality, without separation. Dissolve the illusions which causes dissension in your life. See your Self unite with TETA NZAMBE (God) consciously through a MIOBE IBOGA retreat in Costa Rica.

Ebota A Maghanga, with support from ikara, works towards sustainability of indigenous knowledge for future generations and for a better world built on the brotherhood of man.
When seeking an Iboga Retreat, seek a place where your identity can become. The identity for an Iboga retreat centre is an individualised idea, and the offering is one of encouragement towards the individual’s identity. Do not give your individual vision away and become awash in the offerings that can be collectively reiterated in popular culture today. Become yourself through Iboga. Identity is about you. Seek your identity. The mechanics are far deeper than they seem.
