An opportunity for self-knowledge and self-mastery through the medicine of Iboga.
A rite of passage into maturity in a period and culture where these milestones seem to have lost their shine but not their value.
An Initiation into the Mystery – to see & to meet life from a completely new place.
An invitation to enter the effortless simplicity of your being
This will be a 5 night / 6-day intensive including a two night ceremony with Iboga complemented by other sacred medicines, workshops, practices and rituals for integration and refinement in the days after.

We will be working directly and with the blessing of the spirit of Iboga using methods, modalities, preparation, and practices which in our experience have had the best results for the “Western” mindset while still honouring all indigenous cultures associated with this amazingly intelligent entheogen.
This will be a sacred non-traditional setting that does not ascribe to any particular belief system, religiousness or traditional Dogma.
The space will be encouraging self-empowerment by providing you with the preparation, tools and practices to support you in being your own healer within the context of a group environment.
Flow of the Programme:
The pace of the retreat is slow and deliberate. Meals are structured and served at the same time each day. From the start, you are invited to enter a space of timelessness. A space full of potential, being in the mystery together, allowing what is real and accurate in the moment to guide the programme. Participation is optional to all parts and its each individual’s choice in the moment what to participate in and to what extent.
This will be a direct path intensive for those coming to Iboga for personal and spiritual growth. This is not the right setting for working through severe substance addictions or mental conditions.
Rooting into ME is a 5 night / 6 day immersion including:
Pre Retreat Preparation (Optional)
Up to 6 weeks guided preparation before the retreat (Optional online)
The in-person Retreat (6 Days)
Post Retreat Zoom Call
We will come together again after a few weeks on Zoom to Check In , catch up, support and learn from each other’s experiences.

Our Intentions for the space
Your journey is guided by your personal intentions. These are the intentions of the space you will be journeying in:
· Rooting into Nothing (The dark beyond polarity): Anchoring in no Mind and re-entering reality through the heart
· Letting go of the emotional past
· Ancestral work – Seeing and resolving the ancestral thought /emotion patterns (one feeds the other) that are creating obstacles and unease in your life now.
· Deeply reset the nervous system & consciously imprint ourselves with the qualities and experiences we would have wanted to receive as new-borns
· To clear our mind of the clutter and nonsense that we do not need (The mind is constantly recording everything received through all our senses)
· To deepen the ability to see through one’s own games of self deception
· To remember, awaken and deepen the gifts of our soul, body and mind
· An Initiation into the Mystery - seeing and meeting life from a completely new place
· Learning to see Mind, thoughts, thoughtforms and emotions and working with these aspects in an organic way
· To learn simple effective practices to manage and refine your energy so you are fully equipped and able to support your own journey internally. (Having the roots to be able to weather the storm)
· For everyone to be sufficiently integrated to meet life by the time they leave

SO WHAT IS AN IBOGA JOURNEY LIKE?
Below please find an excerpt from “Amazing Grace” by Lee Albert which really seems to convey a sense of the experience of an Iboga journey.
“It may be helpful to view a session using the analogy of a 36 hour plane journey. We arrive at the airport somewhat flustered, lugging our luggage behind us. With a little relief and a little trepidation we settle into our seat on the plane. We sit and wait; nothing much happens. Then the engines begin to fire up and we start to move slowly.
Before we know it we are taking off, a little perturbed at the speed of sound. Once in the air we encounter a number of air pockets leading to turbulence. Occasionally this is too much and we may throw up. But after five to seven hours the plane settles down and we sit back and watch a very fast, educational movie which we don’t seem to be able to avoid. After this we are worn out and simply want to be left to ourselves to ride out the rest of the journey.
Towards the end of our 36-hour journey we fall asleep and wake up on the ground parked or we have a few hours’ sleep and encounter a very soft landing. We go to the luggage collection to discover half our bags are missing. We don’t give a damn because we are so relieved to be alive and well and anyway, most of what was lost was just a lot of rubbish we didn’t need. “
“This program has been one of the best gifts I have given myself in a while. All the different elements were designed and put together to deliver more than I had hoped for. What made the big difference is the team. It is clear that this team is passionate about what they are doing. Vee is one of the most skilled facilitators I have met. He holds space with grace and is there to make sure no stone is left unturned in your self-inquiry quest. Highly recommended for those who are on their self-development journey.”
Lama – Canada
“The retreat was sooo much more than I expected. Yes, there was the Iboga experience and there was so much more to it. The whole program was so rich in different elements & tools that all supported the process, woven together very delicately and intelligently. The right thing at the right time - even if there was no sense of time ever!.
Vee holds so much wisdom not only about the medicines and is willing to share so freely and open-heartedly. He is a very rare creature (or creator?) that radiates love and compassion throughout his presence. The team was perfect. Very, very kind and caring.”
Vanessa – Germany
“It was and still is a powerful journey into the depth of myself, into the layers of vulnerability, into facing all blind spots that I was not aware of or simply did not want to notice.
The place is amazing, the retreat is amazing, the team is amazing and Vee is amazing. Very supportive, very caring, and very professional in what he is doing.
It was a profoundly valuable and profoundly rewarding experience. I am grateful for it.”
Lukasz - Poland
“One of the best retreats I have ever done! Thanks to Vee and his infinite experience of Life, and Isabell and Kristina for their pure service, love, and compassion. May this work be blessed forever.”

NOTICE ON MEDICATION & MENTAL CONDITIONS
It should be known that Iboga can be dangerous if any sort of SSRI, mood stabilizer or similar “medications” are in the system when iboga is taken. Anyone who has these medications in their body needs to be off of them for a month prior to taking iboga. Iboga has been used by people looking to cure or relieve the following conditions below: Depression, Anxiety, Bipolar disorder, Depersonalization Disorder, Body Dysmorphic Disorder, Mental/Emotional Abuse Issues, Addiction, Mood Disorders, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Severe Mental Blocks, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Childhood Emotional Trauma. This is not a guarantee of any cure. If you have experienced any Psychotic episodes in the past, this particular setting may not be beneficial for you. This is an individual process that happens in a group environment and a level of ability to be self-responsible is needed to navigate the spiritual shamanic space. We recommend that if there is known deep-seated trauma, individuals seek one on one sessions and get approval to participate from their therapist before entering this process. We do not require participants to present a recent heart EKG. You are encouraged to seek the necessary medical testing if you know or suspect you may have physical issues. It is the responsibility of the participant to do so in a timely manner. Please let us know in your introductory message if you are on medication or suffer from any condition.
