Breaking chains from your past and present problems is no easy task. Practitioners share how therapy can help to conquer fears and negative emotions, reaching a deeper connection to the inner self.
Iboga is a plant used for ritual and ceremonial purposes in some African cultures. In todays day and age, it can be used as a treatment for opiate addiction. The experience of Ibogaine occurs in two phases: the visionary phase, and the introspective phase. This helps enable people to conquer their fears and negative emotions. Ibogaine catalyzes an alternate state of consciousness and reminiscent dreaming, while fully conscious and aware. This enables us to process our memories, life experiences and issues of trauma. The journey can last 4-6 hours.
Marouf and Anita, both practitioners of the Iboga therapy journey, met in 2017 at a Buddhist retreat. Working together at other retreats, the two decided to break away because they wanted to have a more holistic approach after the Ibogaine medicine. Wanting to help more people and give them more healing and attention, in 2018, they opened The Exclusive Ibogaine Retreat to give people the best support they can have. Marouf and Anita, having gone through their own iboga journeys and finding so much healing along the way, take us through the process of what all an Iboga journey involves. We go through a journey with one of their patients from the darkness of his life through to his authentic other side.
We discover if Iboga medicine really does help one to open up and connect with your deep subconscious mind. Can it assist with stripping a person from all cultural conditioning, trauma, violence, anxiety, depression, and abuse, to really connect with the true self? Can it help to reset the mind, body and spirit?
