What is Iboga?
Discovered thousands of years ago, Iboga is a perennial tree native to Gabon. Iboga has been used by the Bwiti, the indigenous group of the region, as a physical, mental, and spiritual healing tool. It is their sacrament, their sacred medicine, they often say “there is no Bwiti without Iboga and no Iboga without Bwiti.”
While often classified as a psychedelic, Iboga has little in common with them. Iboga is a highly intelligent plant medicine, going directly to the root of your issues. The way it manifests is entirely unique for each person, giving you exactly what you need to heal. Some may experience profound visions while others may “see” nothing at all. It can be physically challenging or, entirely pleasant.
The Bwiti have been the shepards of this medicine for thousands of years. We at Root Healing therefore trust and adhere to the practices they have established in all that we do. Our medicine is ethically and ceremonially harvested and sourced directly from the village.
Each member of the Root Healing team has been radically transformed by the healing power of Iboga. It’s why we’re so dedicated to helping people heal from their long-term traumas, discover their true selves and finally live a happy & purpose driven life. We are all here to empower & support you throughout your stay, from our cook who lovingly prepares nourishing foods to the providers who help guide you to your truth.
Our goal with our Thailand Iboga retreat is to offer the powerful healing of a traditional Bwiti Iboga Retreat to all of Asia, Oceania, and the Middle East. With this in mind, we are constantly building our team to accommodate all languages and cultures.
In line with our core principles, almost all of our team has traveled to the village in Gabon in order to be initiated directly with the Bwiti tradition and our providers have gone onto more intensive training alongside the Bwiti. We continue to have a strong & ongoing relationship with the village and tradition, realizing that there is always more to learn.
