True transformation is to be able to actually see who you are.
This experience will transform you in ways that you never expected, life-changing, positive and as the Spanish name Revela implies, the experience will reveal parts of you that you never knew existed. It will leave you with the beneficial parts of your self and take away those that no longer serve you.

Tabernanthe Iboga or Iboga for short is a perennial rainforest shrub and psychedelic found native to Western and Central Africa. Iboga translated means “to care for” or “to heal”. It has been used for centuries by traditional communities in West Africa as ceremonial rites of passage and healing purposes.
Traditionally in the Western world, Ibogaine gets used for the treatment of addictions. Mostly, opiates, amphetamines, alcohol, and even nicotine/tobacco. In Africa, they refer to Iboga as a master healer and have been long used as a medicine and a spiritual sacrament. Iboga is not only effective at breaking addictions but also a powerful ally in breaking destructive habits and behavior patterns. How many people, including even yourself that are addicted to a certain emotion, like fear, anxiety, depression. You may be addicted to repeating patterns in your life over and over, like bad relationships. Or, never being able to complete tasks, because of the story you may tell yourself, like “why bother” you will never succeed, you will fail”. Most of us are addicted to patterns and it begins in our DNA, our epigenetics. Past experiences that we may not even be aware of that are from ancestral lineage, passed down through our DNA. According to experts in the field of behavioral epigenetics, traumatic experiences in our own past, or in our ancestor’s past, leave molecular scars that adhere to our DNA. Like silt from a half shucked ear of corn, our experiences and those of our ancestors, are never truly gone, even if they have been forgotten. What if your Grandmother’s predisposition for depression was caused by the neglect she suffered as a newborn? What if this was part of your own molecular residue? What if this was something you could change?
Venturing on an Iboga journey is a personal and therapeutic experience, and it will tend to confront you with your past and elements of your shadow. For many iboga takes the form of a teacher…it is direct yet not overbearing, both powerful and gentle, having a soft touch while being straight to the point.
While under the influence of iboga the user views themselves in a detached state. One is able to view their lives without the full emotional intensity and attachment such experiences may hold. This allows one to process things without being emotionally overwhelmed. Iboga provides a full brain defrag. Many people view iboga as a profound way of pressing the reset button on life, and to provide a fresh start to enact change. After taking iboga it is easier to move in a different direction and gaining new healing perspectives on life.
How Our Iboga Experience is Different
When most people think of Iboga they think, harsh, the stern masculine medicine that gives you the harsh reality of your life and where you have taken the wrong road. Some describe it as scary and unpleasant.
Most times when people research Iboga or Ibogaine on the internet will find some horror stories of how people have died and it is dangerous plant medicine. According to a study presented by Dr. Kenneth Alper, examing cases between 1992-2008, it was found the deaths were caused by additional factors: contraindicated medical or psychiatric conditions, improper dose, inexperienced providers, self-administration or adulterated medicine.
It is helpful to understand the different forms of Iboga. Iboga root bark, total alkaloid iboga extract, and ibogaine
The iboga root bark is the natural plant, containing the ibogaine alkaloid as well as 11 other known alkaloids. The part that is psychoactive, is the root bark part of the plant. It can be taken in different forms, powder, tea, fresh shavings or a highly concentrated natural total alkaloid extract. Iboga is more ceremonial and this is what is given in the Revela Retreat ceremonies, either in micro-dosing or a flood dose. The traditional providers using the plant for addiction purposes are using the total alkaloid extract form of Iboga. It is highly concentrated. Up to 65% of the total alkaloid extract consists of ibogaine, and there are at least 11 other alkaloids that have been identified.
Benefits of Iboga
- Enhanced awareness of unconscious and sub-conscious patterning. Iboga gives one much deeper insight into the structures of your thinking and habitual use of mind.
- Unlocking of past difficult patterns in the DNA inherited via epigenetics.
- Massive boosts to the brain and central nervous system
- Resetting of the reward pathways in the brain.
- Joy and feeling goodness as the iboga gets converted into nor-ibogaine.
- Enhanced willpower- not from a place of force but from a place of understanding the barriers in the way to gracefully meeting the demands of life.
- Relief from trauma
You’ll experience the medicinal benefits of Iboga, a powerful entheogen (meaning God-within.) Sourced from psychoactive perennial shrubs deep in the African tropical forests, the shamanic “Bwiti” practices use these herbs as medicine to treat a range of physical, emotional, and psych-spiritual ailments. The spirit of this medicine has medically been known to be effective in treating addictive tendencies and opioid addictions. Westerners are becoming drawn to working with these natural healing modalities as conventional routes fall short. These plants offer a powerful way of alternative healing to addictive treatment and psycho-spiritual intent.
A person can be an addict of just about anything: substances, food, porn, a person’s own negative emotions and thoughts. However, even if someone is sober and clean of an addiction doesn’t necessarily mean we are healed.
Iboga is not a miracle, the miracle resides in us. It is a process of self healing, as the answers are all within us. Sometimes we choose to ignore our intuitive knowledge, as our ego and conscious brain overrides these thoughts. Iboga helps to amplify our intuitive knowledge so we can become more decisive, more clear, more in touch with our true self. In suffering, there is a mystery that makes resilience possible.
