Retreats in Baja California
We offer a unique opportunity to experience the medicine of ibogaine with Dimitri Mugianis, one of the most recognizable and experienced providers in the world, and Rev. Adriana Gonzalez Villa, Minister of Walking Prayer and ceremonialist from Guerrero, Mexico. This retreat will be a focused medicine journey with the intention of healing and personal revolution.
It is important to know that iboga, like many plant medicines, is in danger of extinction because of over-harvesting for profit as well as other environmental factors such as the decline of wildlife that help the plant spread its seed. It's use no matter where contributes to its diminution in its natural habitat. At Iboga Revolution, we are conscious of these ecological factors and use only ibogaine from a sustainable source. Our ethically sourced ibogaine is made from the voacanga plant and does not threaten the world's ibogaine supply.
Although there is never a guarantee of experience, ibogaine has been described as a "reset," and a sense of being "awake in the dream." Its epigenetic properties have allowed many to reveal the source of past pain and trauma and heal ancestral wounds. Some have described a life review and cleansing and reordering of old patterns. You may or may not experience nausea. Recovery time depends on the dosage and individual biology, ranging from immediate, with little after effects, or lasting up to 48 hours. We will accommodate you wherever you are on your journey.
We will begin both retreats with a medical screening by our doctor and nurse. Ibogaine can affect the heart rhythm. We provide an EKG prior to the ceremony, and encourage you to get one on your own before arriving so that our medical staff can review it. Please note that our doctor must approve all EKG results. A doctor and nurse will be present throughout the entire ceremony. It's important to mention that these retreats are not for detox or treatment of addiction.
Dimitri and Adriana will hold a strong ceremonial container throughout the night, praying, playing music, creating sound, holding warm presence, and providing support where it's needed. We will have additional assistance available, including our amazing medical team. The ceremony will take place outdoors in our private and secure retreat space, accompanied by a central bonfire. The medicine will be taken at night, with the peak experience lasting from 8-12 hours, and a gradual processing and return that could last up to 48 hours.
The remaining time after the ceremony will be filled with rest and contemplation, journaling and introspection. Three delicious and nourishing vegetarian/vegan meal will be served on each full day. After your ceremony we will celebrate with drumming and dance! The retreat will conclude with breakfast the following morning. We can arrange private or group transportation, or recommend hotels if you would like to stay in the area and explore the quaint town of Playa Rosarito.
