Psychedelic Journeys

The foundation of Bwiti tradition is to help us to know ourselves, to know our primary essence, and to remember the Divine within each of us. The secondary aim is to heal illnesses of the mind and body, which block us from living our true essence.

The traditional use of Iboga was born in the forests of West Central Africa, and the experience is potentiated when practiced in places that match the natural surroundings from which Iboga comes from, such as the tropical jungles of Costa Rica. Over the course of the week, we will live the "Pura Vida," purifying our inner world in natural surroundings that speak to the spirit of this medicine.
