From time immemorial, indigenous and shamanic cultures have been using psychoactive medicinal plants in ceremonies for personal healing, psychotherapy and spiritual purposes. The intentional use of these plants is intended to effect the opening of one's mind, to increase the capacity for a range of perceptions that are normally inaccessible, to expand awareness, increase consciousness of the wonders of life and to connect to the divine in one's self, in nature and the cosmos.
From its African origins as a tool used for spiritual purposes in ceremonial practices and as a healing medicine, ibogaine has also been found to be useful in the western world as a powerful tool for psychotherapy. It is being explored for its potential uses in therapy for the treatment of depression, anxiety and other issues such as post-traumatic stress.
Used in a context of specific therapeutic intention, ibogaine may provide an experience that can be very healing and cathartic on many levels.
Ibogaine facilitates a visionary "waking dream" experience that provides insight into the deeper levels of the psyche and may facilitate an awareness of the unconscious or subconscious processes that may be blocking ones’ personal development. This increased awareness may lead to a deeper understanding of self, one's motivation and outlook on life and lead towards an increased capacity for self-compassion, understanding, inspiration and deeply meaningful personal growth.
The Iboga Therapy House assists people interested in crafting their own unique setting for an explorative therapy session in a safe and therapeutic environment.
