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.
We feel blessed and privileged to be in the esteemed company of Makonza. Iboga truly saves and with deep intent to serve Iboga and Bwiti we serve the god in all to enable others to rewrite chapters of their lives with strength, courage and love.
Luis represents strong lineage, diligence and determination to see others free themselves of their illusory shackles. Compassion, empathy and strong commitment to self drives devotion to Bwiti and Iboga and this is what Luis Makonza embodies.
Iboga Saves. Save yourself. Love yourself. Love and respect others.
"Bwiti is the art of knowing. Knowing one’s soul changes everything. It changes your whole perspective on life. I was no longer feeding the crazy thoughts in my mind and feeding my body with garbage. The soul is the true connection. The mind and the body are both tools for its use.
It became my mission to spread the word. I decided to experience Bwiti to my fullest capacity, and in doing so, I’m able to offer others a choice. It’s a choice to take full responsibility for your life, by offering an option to step out of the system, to get better on your own with the help of Iboga, to live a clear and present life that is rewarding for the rest of your days." - Makonza
"The word 'YOGA' is derived from the Sanskrit root 'YUJ' which means to bind, join, attach and yoke, to direct and concentrate the attention in order to use for meditation. Yoga is therefore, the art which brings an incoherent and scattered mind to a reflective and coherent state. It is the communion of the human soul with divinity.
Yoga is the union of the individual self and the universal self. Yoga is practical being a system of thought and life. Knowledge without action and action without knowledge do not help man."- B.K.S Iyengar.
Have we already seen enough Yoga?
Do we already feel we know Yoga?
Have we finished a 200 hour yoga teacher training course and now teach people sequences of physical posture without consideration to the principles of the study of life? Do we teach the philosophy in our actions?
Costa Rica is the worlds most saturated country for yoga retreats and teaching. Teaching however is dependent upon a teachers ability to act according to the principles of life which is yoga itself.
Yoga is approachable and designed for all human beings walking the path of integrating the mind and the body, this is what it is.
Yoga does not require one to be flexible physically, a lot of our great sages whom we study yoga from today and have gifted us yoga came to yoga through physical disability, not their need to feel materially acceptable as flexible and beautiful bodied images. This is not yoga, this is designer, watered down, sold yoga, packaged as something relaxing, good for you and making you look great. This is not integrating the self with the universal self, binding oneself within life to overcome physical and mental debilitating states which are illusory.
Yoga is for all, for the individual, according to the individual and nothing more. It is every bodies by birth rite and should be offered as such.
Well if we felt we already knew yoga this would mean we knew life in its entirety and knowing this is an impossibility, one can start to understand that Yoga is an artform of the self. Your body and mind are the canvases upon which you generate your physical experience from your deep connections to the infinite mental selves in equilibrium.
WOULD YOU LIKE TO KNOW HOW YOGA ORIGINATED, HOW IT FOLLOWS AN EIGHT FOLD PATH OF WHICH JUST ONE OF THESE PATHS REPRESENTED IS PHYSICAL POSTURE?
Through Yoga as it as intended we are gifted the eternal knowledge to master and therefore assume the qualities of mind through learning the art of observance which comes from the practice of concentration upon aligning and building bridges between the physical, mental, intelligent and soul selves.
Join IKARA on a journey of self to self to realise what Yoga truly becomes within the individual.. A study of life as realised in the Bwiti system for Iboga medicine. Unification of self as intended through ancient wisdom.
LEARN the qualities of mind and their amendments.
LEARN The ability to withdraw and refocus senses with aperture like control.
LEARN Pranayama, the art of respiration, its anatomy and biological responses. Not fancy breathwork rehashed from ancient principles.
FINALLY LEARN to apply and align the skills within the physical postures of yoga and within physical life. Unified control and balance.
True yoga will reflect all of the natural functions we experience in nature which is within us all as individuals.
To practice Yoga is to learn to live and through living to leave behind states of mental and physical imbalance.
Without the intention of practicing yoga according to Patanjalis sutras and the eight fold path is likened to taking plant medicine without traditional knowledge and guidance. It can only go so far and more often than not one is set adrift upon a sea of confusion. The systems are there for us to utilise, they are systems for the individual, not for the mass.
WHY do we come to stretch our bodies, in merely stretching we move away from knowledge of why we originally felt need to stretch. Are we not looking at wanting to stretch the mind?
We seek suppleness of mind and body, effortless movement of mind and body, nourishment of the physical joints and the neural networks joins, tissues and organs.
To stretch is to fight oneself, to unify and access the electrical system of the body through this unification is to be at one with the body.
LETS UNIFY MIND AND BODY AT IKARA. All of our disciplines reflect this unification. Ikara is sharing in the unification of soul with self.
Join us for our Hatha Workshop, for private yoga tuition or our weekly classes.

Every day I try to capture the fact that when you look out from Ikara Retreat Centre to the view, the ocean seems to exist in a space higher in altitude than our retreat centre, and yet it is at sea level. You can see in this photo the top of the yoga deck and the blue line above it is the ocean. Yes, yes.... parallax error for sure, I know it all too well from my physics degree but everyday it amazes me because it definately denies all laws of physics. Some days the vista provided by the ocean is so immense, I see it and I do not believe it......it continues to change in all dimesions at different times of the day and I am constantly astonished, everyday, when I look out, I take notice and I make sure that I never forget, that every day is different and not to take this for granted.
In reality, this photo is so unable to capture the reality I see through my eyes, compared to how it looks in real life, I apologize for this poor representation. And then again, I am totally incapable of even beginning to know how it looks to you.
The sentiment of this reminded me of this quote "Your eye knows it sees , though it cannot see itself except through the use of reflection. In the same way the world as you see is a reflection of what you are, a reflection not in glass but in three dimensional reality . You project your thoughts, feelings, expectations outward, then you percieve them as the outside reality. When it seem to you that others are observing you, you are observing yourself from the standpoint of your own projections" NoPR 1974
So in this sense, you cannot even see it how I see it in reality, you need to see it for yourself. Its always going to be that way.
"Now you may take a break."

Ikara's mission is to provide a space and collaborate with Iboga providers in an effort to support their ongoing dedication and work to the study of Bwiti practice and the healing of others.
By working collectively we open up and strengthen our scope, providing greater choice for all those seeking Iboga as the tool that reunites the self with soul and liberates the spirit.
Our team provides opportunities for those seeking Iboga to feel out that which resonates with them personally, that which feels comfortable and felt to be correct for the particular individual.
It has been said, it takes a village to raise a child and our Bwiti family here at Ikara hold firm to this premise.
As individuals and providers of Iboga medicine, our team offers unique skillsets, experiences and capacities to our guests enhancing the healing of Iboga.
It is our deepest intent to pass on Ikara's namesake, 'a place of initiation, convergence and meeting' to people by sharing in a collective of Bwiti providers to strengthen and bolster the Bwiti traditions. Providers need opportunities to offer their wisdom and ensure people have access to the great healing potentials of Iboga as seen through the lens of Bwiti tradition. Our direction to open up a team, to offer our home, is an extension of the intent to heal all those seeking truth of self and liberty from trauma through Iboga.
We introduce our team here,
Discoveriboga Church of America, Ibogawaken and others, await all those seeking love, nurture and empathy of self through Iboga medicine and Bwiti teachings.
Join us and our team of providers for powerful remodeling of self and transformative journeys of freedom through the coming schedule.

Costa Rica´s air borders have been open to travelers from all over the world since 1st November 2020. Tourists are here now, enjoying everything Costa Rica has to offer. Masks are required in public places such as supermarkets, public transport etc but you may enjoy places like the beach and waterfalls without a mask.
To visit Costa Rica is easy. Travelers only need to meet these three simple entry requirements:
1. Have a valid passport and proof of intent to exit Costa Rica within 90 days. Of course!
2. Insurance Policy Visitors traveling to Costa Rica will need to provide proof of a medical insurance policy to cover any COVID-19 related medical treatment or quarantine lodging while in Costa Rica. In the case of international insurance, tourists must request from their insurer a certification issued in English or Spanish, noting:
3 Complete an online Health Pass (Pasa de Salud) 48 hours prior to travel to Costa Rica (don´t try and fill it out earlier as we did as it will not work). The Health Pass can be found at https://salud.go.cr. The site is both English and Spanish and is easy and quick to complete. It asks you for basic personal details such as your name, age, nationality, passport number, flight details and the address where you will be staying while in Costa Rica - which we can provide. You also need to enter your travel insurance number. If you are using one of the Costa Rican companies you can enter the number directly on the website and it will verify it on the spot making it easier. If using an international insurance provider, you also will need to upload your policy so that the Tourism Institute can verify it in advance of your arrival After completing the form, you are provided with a QR Code which will be scanned upon entry.
IMPORTANT: Costa Rica no longer requires a negative COVID test to enter. This requirement was eliminated as of October 26.
Better still we have personally gone through this process ourselves last year in October 2020 so it is still fresh in our minds and we can help and advise you.
Your country may have special requirements upon returning and you should check before leaving. at the moment we are aware of the following special requirement for people returning to the US
Returning to the US
Effective January 26 2021, all airline passengers to the United States ages two years and older must provide a negative Covid-19 viral test taken within 72 hours of flight departure from Costa Rica. If you are returning to the US we can help you obtain these tests and drive you to testing facilities close by. Tests cost around $130 USD and results are provided within 24-72 hours.
This website here shows all the available airlines currently flying into Costa Rica.
Canada has suspended all flights to the south (Mexico and all caribbean countries) until 30th April 2021. Canada also requires a COVID test before leaving. More information here.
In this reality, we are excited to share our new dates for our Traditional Bwiti Healing Retreats.
Our additional dates for the first half of 2021 are as follows. We are excited to be working with bwiti canada and other providers during this period.

Otra playa que encontramos sin nadie allí. Dentre Playa Dominicalito y Playa Hermosa y cerca Ikara Retreat Centre. Los iones negativos neutralizan los radicales libres y, afortunadamente para nosotros, estos iones son más abundantes en la playa, el bosque de montaña y las cascadas. Estamos triangulados dentro de estos. Estos iones conducen señales eléctricas a través del cuerpo. Limpian los nervios y los músculos de las células.
Another beach that we found with no one there. Between Playa Dominicalito and Playa Hermosa and near Ikara Retreat Center. Negative ions neutralize free radicals and fortunately for us, these ions are most plentiful at the beach, mountain forest and waterfalls. We are triangulated within these. These ions conduct electrical signal through the body. They clean the cells nerves and muscles.
Feliz Año Nuevo! Our new year has started with much happiness as we begin a new collaboration.....Iboga will be coming to Ikara Retreat Centre bringing forth opportunities for those who have been called to Iboga.
At the end of March 2021, we will be hosting our first Iboga retreat.
It has always been our deepest of intentions to work with the Iboga medicine. It has been said, the union of nature and soul removes the veil of ignorance that covers an intelligence. Within the Bwiti tradition, Iboga brings this union, lifts the veil of ignorance and shows the self that it is empowered, that all is choice and the truth endures within the individual and not without the individual. The showing by the root, the coercing, returns the self to its union with the soul, the intersection where all abilities exist, where all knowledge resides and the only truth dwells.
Iboga does not judge, does not discriminate and certainly does not deliver collectivist wisdom and iconography. It´s supreme intelligence guided through the powerful lens of BWITI tradition is somehow tailored to each and every individual´s unique set of problems. Whatever the trauma or whatever the goal it sees YOU and you will start learn to become you, to sift through the residues of past, to take what is needed, and to leave that which is no longer serving.
We are extremely excited to be a part of individuals becoming themselves, unified with choice, unified with nature and developing the tools needed to see the love within all.

100% pure Costa Rican oxygen all respirated and observed with love consciously. The hummingbirds agreed. 4th limb amigos.
Our first rainy season on Costa Rica and we love it! At Ikara, our purpose built Yoga deck means that you can do yoga anyday - rain, hail or shine! Amidst the rain and low misty clouds - it is beautiful.
Welcome to Ikara Retreat Centre!!
It is with great happiness that we have finally arrived in Costa Rica from Australia! COVID-19 tried to stop us but we made it after waiting patiently for 6 or more months. We can now start operating our beautiful retreat centre.
