My friend and I researched Iboga for years before deciding on Iboga House, which seemed to offer the most authentic experience. We chose correctly--the experience was everything we'd hoped for and beyond. The shaman, Moughenda, was very happy and peaceful but also direct, with lots of wisdom, and you could tell that he possessed an amazing amount of knowledge and...

I had been wanting to do iboga for some time and had spoken to a good friend about going to do it together. Finally, we were able to get it together and go.

I attended some time ago for a psychospiritual healing that did not go well at all. I was treated rudely at times without reverence or love of any kind. The "shaman" although charismatic and having some unique insights, was egotistical, spoke of himself with a cocky attitude in the 3rd person at times, and imposed his limited beliefs on the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are a Shamanic Healing and Wellness Retreat Centre which is licensed by the Ministry of Health to provide detoxes using the Iboga root. We offer traditional Bwiti Ceremonies, Spiritual Showers, Shamanic guided Psycho-Spiritual Exploration, detoxification for depression, addiction and chemical toxicity. We have over a 71% success rate in relieving most symptoms. We also offer Bwiti counseling which promotes fearlessness, positive thoughts and teaches skills to maintain peace in mind. We are located on a beautiful mountainside just outside of Liberia Costa Rica on a 104 acre ranch, surrounded by captivating views. We provide two Iboga treatments and a spiritual shower to each client. The first is followed by a trip to the spa, horse back riding and canopy tours and the second Iboga Journey is followed by a trip to the Playa CoCo beach. Depending on post Iboga recovery times there may be time to visit a waterfall and national park. We are not a resort but a place to heal and awaken with the use of Iboga being the main focus of our program. ... more   less
