In recent times, the Bwiti iboga retreat has been recognized as a powerful traditional healing practice. It has unique arrangements, activities, and experience which distinguishes it from other plant medicine retreats. The retreat is typically led by well-trained Bwiti Iboga Providers with the presence of medical personnel, counselors, and medical facilities to encourage growth and optimal healing. Iboga retreats usually last for eight days. It includes airport transfer, accommodation, medical screening, integration day trips, orientation, counseling, spiritual power, healthy food, yoga, meditation, herbal steam sauna, and massage.
The first day is typically spent preparing for the retreat. This includes the pickup from the airport, enough time to settle in, a one-on-one interview with the retreat leaders, and orientations on everything a participant needs to know about the ceremony.
The retreat proper starts on the second day with relaxing activities and medical checks of vital organs. Then as the days go by, guests will have the opportunity to do some healing and preparation activities. From the time you arrive at the retreat until you leave, we will be right there with you giving guests everything we’ve got to ensure they can easily adapt and integrate into the spiritual healing.
Safety is a top priority during iboga retreat, which is why guests are taken through health evaluation questions and checking of EKG, liver function test, and a review of ongoing medications (if any). A pre-retreat plan may be arranged to prevent contradictions and ensure the patient maximizes the health benefits of the plant. Ideal accommodation and diet are other important aspects of iboga retreats. This is why the ceremony is held in a beautiful and comfortable environment that guarantees guests’ privacy and comfort. The accommodation typically has a private bath and bed, stunning outdoor scenery, and calming spaces to reflect in. All these attributes will help the body and mind relax and prepare. Also, meals served throughout the ceremony are healthy and mostly local and organic – perfectly ideal for the ceremony.
