Life is an illusion, a very real one that we creating. How can we find a way to look at ourselves, the processes of our mind without judgement and the layers of conditioning that life brings? We create layers of camouflage that we can no longer see and from this comes dis ease (emotional and physical) & we see no way out because our mind has become rigid.
"And yet that is what most of us want—to find a secure place in our ways of thinking. We want to pursue a set pattern and be undisturbed in our thoughts, in our actions. But it is only the mind that is capable of patiently observing its own conditioning and being free from its conditioning—it is only such a mind that is able to have a revolution, a radical transformation, and thereby to discover that which is infinitely beyond the mind, beyond all our desires, our vanities and pursuits. Without self-knowledge, without knowing oneself as one is—not as one would like to be, which is merely an illusion, an idealistic escape—without knowing the ways of one’s thinking, all one’s motives, one’s thoughts, one’s innumerable responses, it is not possible to understand and go beyond this whole process of thinking." (from "As One Is: To Free the Mind from All Condition: To Free the Mind from All Conditioning" by Jiddu Krishnamurti)
When we see past the illusion we have created, what do we find? Truth, a direct soul connection, true creativity, an ability to change and to heal - this is the process of Iboga The Bwiti in Gabon know of these processes, that is why they are the protectors of Iboga. Creation is universal knowledge attainable for all of those that are ready for change, to do the work. These processes do not need to be understood intellectually, they need to be experienced to become real, with Iboga this can be done.
Iboga is a state of being. It is everything and through the connection that Iboga provides, you will naturally heal yourself through freedom of thought. Iboga should not be defined, for in doing so, we will limit the efficacy of the plant.
Let us start at the point of influence to come to Iboga. Why does someone come to Iboga? There is always a reason and behind that reason, if you investigate far enough there will be pain, guilt, fear, doubt, or sorrow. We are conditioned. You have a problem and are experiencing a problem. This is fragmentary and in conflict with your environment. Do not define the problem and fragment more. You are reacting to your thought, that is not relating to what things truly are. Emotions are intricately linked to our memories, we create a web. But back at the core, without the conditioning, there was just a feeling, an experience which was then defined and constrained and we say "it is this emotion we call XXXX". If we want to understand Iboga delivered within the Bwete tradition as best we can, we must understand that nothing we look at is what we think, that is a condition.
What Iboga truly is an infinite connection to every other component, the artform cannot be studied or practiced, systemized. It is not a medicine, it is a connection to God, Universality, The Whole, All That Is, The One, Consciousness, or Soul. It just IS. remove conditioning, go through the mind. With Iboga you become what you are in actuality.
Be spontaneous, leave your fears behind and come to Costa Rica.to experience Iboga as it is intended. Our Nganga Kuma Bwenze has been trained in one of the original branches of Bwete called Miobe. He is the only western man trained in Miobe The Miobe Nganga uses the plants in forest to assist the patients in healing states of dis ease caused from unbalanced thinking. Iboga is one of many plants that we use in our retreats.

Bwete is the reflection of God. It is not a system, it is whole and a spirituality in true vernacular. Spirituality being the only omnipresent representation one can experience.
Bwete is therefore life in all of its manifestations. It is our knowing of our action, our realisation and truth beyond thought which is fragmentary and exists in religiosity.
Bwete is not bwiti. Selling Iboga is not Bwete. Living a material life in sin is not being a Nganga. Nothing in the west today is anywhere near worthy of appropriating Bwete. You cannot study Bwete, you live Bwete. It is not Iboga, it is not ceremony. To realise your wholeness which is your only correction, you need people living Bwete.
My life as a Miobe Nganga is to do Gods will in all facets of my life without contradiction. Only from here am I worthy to study and learn, under masters, the true tradition from the only unadulterated Bwete derived of the first nations Babongo. First I eat, sleep, work and therefore spiritualise my entire being to be as clean as possible in servitude, to ensure to those who are sick that there is a way out.
Miobe Nganga hold the complete knowledge of the forest and the psychological prowess required to diagnose the sick.
Come to wholeness. Come to being. Come to your natural state by the only way possible, by the hands of those that represent exemplary cleanliness of mind and body to ensure the exchange of healing spiritual force.

Iboga is a spiritual tool. It is life itself. People in the west seek Iboga to heal. When you are ready and if you are spiritually clean, you can use Iboga to explore the nature of your being
"Learn to Experience what you are" for there is no thing more rewarding than knowing thyself.
"Now: I want to emphasize again that while all this sounds difficult in the telling, it becomes much more clear intuitively when you learn to experience what you are, for if you cannot travel inside your physical body to find your identity, you can travel through your psychological self. There are far more wonders to perceive through this inward exploration than you can possibly believe until you begin such a journey for yourself. You are a soul; you are a particular manifestation of a soul, and it is sheer nonsense to think that you must remain ignorant of the nature of your own being. You may not be able to put your knowledge clearly into words, but this will in no way negate the value or the validity of the experience that will be yours once you begin to look inward. Now you may call this a spiritual or psychological or psychic exploration, as you prefer. You will not be trying to find your soul. In that respect there is nothing to find. It is not lost, and you are not lost. The words you use may make no difference, but your intent does indeed." - Session 529 Chapter 6 - The Soul and the Nature of its Perception, Seth Speaks "The Eternal Validity of the Soul"
This book and my experiences with Iboga are inextricably linked. If you seek true understanding of the self and your own physical existence read it and the "Nature of Personal Reality" @sethcenter https://sethcenter.com Then come to Iboga, use this divinely inspired tool, and explore your psychological layers, connect to your inner self, and remove the blockages that are currently invisible, to find the reality that we are all part of the same whole, all that is, Teta Nzambe. This is the celestial knowledge that belongs to us all! Miobe Mingongo! Such beauty.

Bwekayé ! The vision ceremony. At Mboka A Nzambe, King Adumangana cleanses Jamie with fire so that he can enter into communion with Nzambe Kana, the Creator God, master of time and circumstances.
Today Jamie landed in Gabon. He was invited to visit the Universal Village of God "Mboka A Nzambe". He will meet his friends and spiritual teachers, to learn tradition and philosophy. This is not about Iboga, It is about connection to self and a true spirituality that emerges only when universal understandings and philosophies are applied without conditioning.

GOOD NEWS!! Starting 1st April 2022! it will be even easier to enter Costa Rica, please read below.
We will be back home hosting retreats in Costa Rica in July 2022
- 4th to 8th July 2022
- 11th to 15th July 2022
There are many countries that offer direct flights to Costa Rica including but not limited to Canada, United States, Germany, Switzerland, France, UK, France, Spain, the Netherlands and of course many South American Countries.
Costa Rica has always welcome vaccinated and non-vaccinated travelers. Starting 1st April 2022, the temporary immigration measures for entering Costa Rica – put in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic – are repealed. This eliminates the requirement to complete the epidemiological form known as the Health Pass and the requirement of medical insurance for unvaccinated foreigners.
Costa Rica does not require a COVID test for entry either!
One of our favourite aspects of Costa Rica, is the abundance of wildlife. This is a spider monkey we saw in Cabo Matapalo. What a face!

We often tell people not to come to Iboga with expectations. But how can you come without expectations when information on this plant is so widely shared on the internet? I just watched a documentary on a woman from Liverpool, England, who went and lived a month with the women in a Babongo Village. I rarely watch anything so for me it was nice. She learnt their way of life in the village. It was interesting because as I watched the show, they only mentioned Iboga once. It was more about day to day life for the women of the village. Then when it was time to leave, the grandmother said that she would like to initiate the western woman. As I watched the video and saw the results of the initiation ceremony for someone who truly had no expectations, I could see she was so blessed with universal understandings that did not exist for her before.. Her simple but wise expressions of pure understanding of her life's path afterwards truly made me very happy.
I see people come to Iboga and they do not come with this innocence. In this modern world, it is virtually impossible (but I have seen varying degrees of it). Even when you go to Gabon now, you know you are going with the expectation that you are going to take Iboga.
I have done much work with Iboga and one of my main lessons to date has been removing all my expectations of the experience before, during and after. These expectations may be built on past experiences with altered states of being, other psychedelics, or other beliefs but as you learn to release these patterns of behavior you can begin to see the freedom of the experience, without even looking at it.
This has been my greatest lesson to date for this frees me from my own preconceptions and when in process allows me not to define it. I am truly in the state of spontaneity and in this state, I am able to receive. What each individual receives can not be defined.

Makonza is the most highly trained Nganga in the west. This is a list of the Bwete rites and initiations he has received to date in Africa. In fact, he is the only truly initiated Nganga in the west. You cannot buy Spirit.
The modern plant medicine movement is at the forefront of destroying the efficacy of these plant spirits by implementing a scene where the "shamans/healers" are either improperly trained or not even trained at all and worst of all, self appointed. We have spoken before about "The Importance of Trust in your Nganga" to ensure true healing can be achieved. Now more than ever, it is essential to protect these ancient traditions and the ancestral knowledge. Stop the west from fragmenting these processes that have existed for over 10,000 years.
For healing, choose Iboga not Ibogaine. Choose a servant to God, not a self appointed God.

Iboga is a tool that allows us to heal emotional and physical states of disease. The mind is our greatest obstacle in our current world. Iboga connects you to your soul. Puts you back in the seat of reality creation.
If you are suffering physically or mentally, Iboga will pick you up, rattle you around, it is intense, it will put you back down and let you stand on your own two feet, like a good parent, You have to find your own way. Iboga knows that you possess everything you need to live a happy healthy life inside of yourself. It removes the blockages that prevents you from experiencing this.
Thankyou Iboga Thankyou Bwiti.

Iboga brings us to soul, delivers us to our seat within soul. Within this connection to soul which is where we realise God, no malady, problem or disease, either spiritual, mental or physical exists.
Iboga is not treating dis ease from a perspective of your direct problems, it is only interested in bridging you to soul, to the spirit realm where one connects to god, lives beyond death and transcends the illusion of dis ease in the physical world.
Iboga is an entity left by the spirit world, by god, to show the individual their unique, undying, eternal volition. To bring one to the understanding that we are gods unto our self through god himself.
Iboga is not a drug, Iboga is not simply a plant or psychedelic. Are we after all simply a human? Iboga is our soul connection, our chance to clear mind, to learn aperture like control of mind, to command mind and ones experience to be free of the nonsense that a tyrannical mind produces. Iboga clears mind through its bridging to God and feeds our experience to us directly from source as intended by spirit, by God.
Our problems physically experienced have been created by us for only one reason, that is to get you to soul to experience God essence, to get you to truth. The problems are merely the means to get us to the tool of Iboga that will bring us to God through Bwiti as directed by Nganga and his service to spirit.

Our ceremonial week is over, and as we say goodbye to our new friends we are excited for what lies ahead for them. They committed to change and to the betterment of themselves in a variety of ways. The path of truth is not always easy but always rewarding for those who choose it. I often ask myself if I like change? I see in my behaviour resistance to change. Why would I take Iboga again if I am happy as I am now. I have a new life in Costa Rica, rewarding work, a life partner, a new best friend and I do not want for anything. But there can always be more. If you open yourself up with no predisposed specific change in mind, Iboga can offer you a range of insights - to listen to, or not. Everything is and can be anything you wish it to be. There is never anything to fear other than a rigid state of mind.

Nothing could be farther from the truth when done in the proper way. Iboga is a spirit that is here to show you your truth. It’s your mirror. It’s here to clean you and save you from yourself. You will have to face yourself for the first time and be accountable for your actions. Healing begins within. It’s not outside of you. It’s inside. You are spirit. You are your own healer. Looking for gurus and community to fix your situation will only make it worse. Leave the crowd and forge your own path. That path starts with the man in the mirror. Truth will set you free. We are constantly looking for stimulation and validations from others and things. But yet all we need is within ourselves. Stop your habits and learn to be still. Listen to your soul. It’s waiting for you. Iboga’s purpose is to connect you to your soul. Allow the process to happen. All it asks is that you surrender. It’s so simple but yet the greatest challenge people have. Join us for the experience of your life and change your life forever. God bless you all. Makonza
Our point of difference is merely our deep devotion to tradition and ethic, unwavering and uncompromising in its delivery of Iboga and Bwiti culture as intended through an initiated Nganga. Ikara´s team is a village, made up of the only true Nganga in the west, Bwiti students and aspirants of learning the art of psychic interaction, and our psychic mentor who develops and furthers our clients integration and preparation of the Iboga process.
In Bwiti culture, each temple utilises a reader/psychic as an essential part of the union of self & soul. The psychic assists the aspirant in developing their own psychic capacities which allows for the realization of one's connection to the divine source of spirit. It trains the individual to learn the art of listening to their soul and having courage in being guided by spirit as it is being taught through Iboga. This process of which Ikara represents includes a Nganga, psychic reader, Bwiti students, Iboga and polyrhythmic music all entwine to construct the dimensional container for those seeking healing, to accurately curate and promote the deep knowledge of becoming realized in the nurture and love of spirit. This process, divine in design, seeks to show us we live beyond death, and that love, forgiveness and strength will result in the dissolution of fear greed, guilt, and pain.
Ikara welcomes our psychic mentor and reader Angel Morgan of RAISING ENERGY, who is at the hub of our preparation and integration. Angel can help you prepare for and integrate your iboga experience on the spiritual level where the iboga healing is performed. This provides a unique path to integration that enables you to understand your experience without interference with the layers of the ego and the auto suggestions that might occur with other integration styles that use a patient and doctor style relationship.
We continue forging our unique identity apart from other Iboga Centres.. Our centre strengthens as we unite together - we all have a strong connection to spirit through our own individual lifetimes of work. Together we form our village, entrenched in spirit and tradition from which you can navigate the layers of the self and great healing will result.

Experience the true creative nature of consciousness. Rewrite your programming. 5% of the time we exist within the conscious creative state and the other 95% of time we are replaying programs that we learnt earlier in life, of which maybe 70% are detrimental or in opposition to our current desires and outlook (Bruce Lipton Biology of Belief). So, become aware of your conscious thoughts, capture the process of thinking that is thought in process because experience is the actualization of thought in this physical reality.
However, this is not easy if you are already so disconnected that you can no longer control your thoughts let alone observe them and implement a conscious strategy of belief replacement in your life.
Addictions, PTSD, OCD, repetitive thoughts, & manifested emotions such as anger, grief, shame, depression and anxiety, all exist now as a program of the subconscious mind.
Erase these programs with Iboga.
Iboga enables you to wipe these programs and you need to know what new programs you wish to create instead. This neural plasticity that the Iboga world so often talks about can be likened to the theta programming that we went through from ages 2 to 7 yo. Maybe this is why so many tell you to search for your inner child in your Iboga experience, so you go back to that stage in your life where behaviours were programmed, some you can call traumas, if you wish. But there is never anything that exists that cannot change. And you don´t need to categorize your Iboga experience by searching for your inner child either.
With Iboga you set up the conditions for theta state activity, where you can now program yourself, consciously, as an adult, with your wishes and desires. Your environment is always your petri dish, this time, more so than ever, thinking positive thoughts really works now. You have a chance now to create new structures for your life ahead. So magical this chance appears but life is magic and existence is creation. Bassé!!

You do not need to convince yourself you are loved, healed and good. You are already these things. Convincing implies your distrust of self. You are already Iboga, it is you & it is your souls´ communicative tool calling you to safety, freeing you to yourself.
Negative thought is the illusory world, not the other way around. Just because millions express negativity does not affirm or justify its existence. It merely says millions live in illusion - the illusion we do not create reality with our thought. The truth is that we need only surrender to the opposite condition and use the tools left to us by spirit to reconvene with ourselves and realise the lessons here on this physical plane. When we get out of the way, when we surrender without aversion, we close the gap and we begin our training as Gods in the making. We begin our life through rebirth with Iboga.
So we ask ourselves what are we expecting Iboga to do, what do we anticipate or expect Iboga to be? To be sure, we will always gain that which we need with Iboga, not necessarily that which we want. Our states of dis-ease are generated by a distinct difference between what we are wanting and what we are not getting. At this point, there is an energetic collision and the subsequent pulling between these points. This opposition generates an emotional signal, a signal felt as an emotion to tell us that we are in opposition and that control must be relinquished. A message from soul to flesh that we must address this difference, look at what is causing the dis-ease. One will be what we want and one what we need. Behind dis-ease lies exactly what we need. The emotional tone and signal of disease and negativity is only existent to get us out of the way, to get us to listen to love, to the soul. It is not there to scare us, to break us, to destroy us. It is our lighthouse to love. stare through the light without attachment, to its capture of negativity and we find the need of self in soul.
The soul is never wrong, it is all knowing.
After all, it is the one sending the signals. Who would go so far as to want to elevate you, to free you from dis-ease. Who would go so far? Who loves you if not you? Abandoning ourselves, to ourselves soul is the art. The art, being art, takes physical time and space yet the art already exists completed.
We must accept the soul metering out of lessons over time with patience. Our patience is acceptance of time, which is learning in action, to sit with ourselves through any circumstance. Iboga and soul want us to sit in this time/action, to learn to be with ourselves, to feel all there is to feel with ourselves, so we may remap and experience that which is completed. For what is completed, to stay alive, it needs us to sing its thread, its journey, to accumulate and wind up energy, we are on the orbit of ourselves, our planet, of our souls. Our soul calls us to be and become what we are meant to be in our becoming. The soul knows of no roadblocks and when we find some we have all the help we need to navigate them. They are an intrinsic part of the plan, the road blocks are our illusory boundaries, ever moving willingly as we become inspired to be more of what we are through overcoming this particular design of obstacle. This is the soul's meaningful game play.
We must sit in and with ourselves to learn what it is that we must become. In the modern world today, one feels complete when escaping and running from the soul, on the run from the self so to speak. When do we sit with our problems as a friend would sit with another friend? The problem is not the problem, the time sitting us with and within the problem is not the problem, your reaction to these elements is your problem. How we react becomes the problem, we choose our reactions, we create our actions, the soul uses our Iboga phone to transmit knowledge of that which is divine choice.
Our lives are pathways available for choosing, completed, ready to be engaged on an active experiential level. To be outside of time is to choose, to be free of time is the moment point of reaction and action. Then we experience a chosen event through time and space. We must sit with our choice to know what it is that we choose and to know what it is that we must develop. The active choice, the knowing choice, is our letting go to spirit, to soul, to merge with our greater personhood.
In this training, we undertake the Bwiti and Iboga, we learn to abandon ourselves to that which sustains us, to free up the communication between the ego self and this deep framework of soul. With Iboga, we learn the dreamscape, its influences and interchanges with reality. We come to be suspended between worlds, this is Ibogas great injunction, our active participation in the dreamworld of symbols and our reciprocal influence from the physical world upon the assumed Iboga dreamscape whilst being awake in both.This is medicines nature, this is Ibogas gift, a training tool, that which suspends bodily reaction to the physical to allow the mind enough room to be within the Iboga dreamscape, to be equipped to deal with the messages of soul and actively integrate the material into physical actuality. Iboga´s purpose, universality and process, not so much that which is brings, but rather how it delivers, that which it brings, maybe the key to understanding which allows us to target our health of mind and body, our intents purposes and desires, and overall our lifes value fulfillment.

Iboga vs Nothing. Apples and oranges, chalk and cheese, this Iboga vs is the new cliche.
Is a dog like a cat?
So in stating the inherently obvious, what could be the motivating force behind someone wanting to create a vs between plant medicine? Firstly, there is no for and against in the universe and this is what plant medicines teach! They are all from the one divine source and this is what their injunction remains. So, back to why we have everyone telling us Iboga vs Ayahuasca. Well, plain and simple, they are trying to make what they have more attractive to you and justify it to themselves as what people need to hear. This strengthens their righteousness, rather innocently even. Iboga teaches that we do not justify or affirm to anyone, that reality is not something to be controlled, it is something to guide us to truth. Strengthening a position for someone else is controlling reality. Personally we have experienced both plants and continue their teaching. Most providers writing about the differences between Ayahuasca and Iboga have only ever had one or the other have not experienced the truth of these plants. In fact, as a student of Bwiti and Iboga I am eternally surprised that within the Iboga world in the west there is constant commentary on what Ayahuasca does without even having experienced the plant themselves. No plant medicine can avail itself to anyone other than the self experiencing it.
Iboga teaches that we listen to what we want to hear from ourselves, not from what others want us to read or hear. Choose that which the heart speaks and healing will fall upon thee. I Bois Sacre, the sacred wood of the divine source through the rites of initiation beginning with rites of confession, honouring of ancestors and building relations with the ancestors frees us from the ideas of the universe being pitted against one another. I bois Sacre Merci.
