EXPERIENCE AT THE VILLAGE

I worked side by side with Moughenda at Iboga House in Costa Rica from 2012-2013 after I became the first Iboga Provider graduate. I traveled to Gabon and visited his grandfather's village where we created many videos about the Bwiti experience. I became the director of Iboga House and ran the center when Moughenda was not there. I had 2 additional trips to Moughenda's village in Gabon.

EXPERIENCE AT THE VILLAGE

I was first introduced to the medicine in 2014 when I was seeking healing for addiction, depression, anxiety, PTSD and anorexia/bulimia. I had tried everything before and nothing had helped me. I traveled to Costa Rica and was greeted with kindness, safety and patience. My experience with Moughenda was so profound and gentle. I got a lifetime of healing in one night. I decided to take my first step into the Bwiti Tradition and pre-initiate while I was there, one day to travel to Gabon and complete my full initiation and training. I wanted to offer to others what Moughenda, the Bwiti tradition and this beautiful medicine gave to me.  In 2020 I finally arrived in Africa. Every single need of security and safety was met as a single woman traveling abroad, from being welcomed at the airport to chaperones throughout my entire stay in Africa. At the village I was welcomed with open arms and open hearts. The training itself is fully immersive and comprehensive. Moughenda ensures we have a complete understanding of the teachings and how to safely serve the medicine before we are given the blessing to offer it to others. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. In my training and healing at Moughenda's village I gained knowledge, confidence and understanding of myself and how to life a good life through the teachings and the tradition. Going to Africa was the greatest gift I ever gave to myself and will be forever grateful to Moughenda, the Bwiti Tradition, the medicine, my Bwiti family and myself for listening to my soul.

Moughenda helped me truly wake up. He taught me how life works, what's it's purpose and how we acheive it. And he could always break things down, make it make sense. He taught me the tools and how to use them, and called me out when I wasn't doing it right. Moughenda is a man I trust and thanks to him I don't live with that nagging feeling that I'm lost and wasting my life, I live knowing what I want, and that the power to bring that into my life is in my own hands.

EXPERIENCE AT THE VILLAGE

My first experience with Moughenda was in a Journey in 2016, before I met him in the physical world at the village in 2017 for my Initiation. In that journey Moughenda was already teaching me about the reality of my being. He laughed at me and loved me in a way that I will never forget. It amazes me still that I have come such a long way from where I began with my treatment in 2015. Iboga and my teacher Moubengui saved my life. I still learn now from that first journey and all of the teachings that were shared with me from two years of training in Costa Rica.   Moughenda has been both a tough and loving teacher to me. For this I am eternally grateful. I have learned more from him than I can possibly summarize in this box. What I can say is that I continue to learn from all that I have experienced with my journeys both in the physical and spiritual worlds. i use this knowledge everyday to manage myself. I returned in 2021 to the village for my Provider Training. Immediately upon the first class Moughenda pushed me to confront and resolve attachments that were not serving me. He had me do several life reviews, difficult work as well. Because of this work I have the most beautiful relationship with my family that I have ever dreamed possible. We are healed. I am very grateful to be a participant of the Rights of Passage as well. I have become a fine adult due to this experience. I came to Iboga for treatment as I spent 30 years of my life bingeing alcohol, relationships and food. I was diagnosed with multiple mental illnesses. I led a very chaotic and self abusive life and I lived in a nightmare inside of my mind. I felt very lost and terrified when I came to do my first treatment. I did not know who I was. I did not even think I was real. My mind was in constant motion and I had been using alcohol to attempt to escape. I have been free from alcohol for almost eight years now. I have been free from marijuana and tobacco for several years as well. I wake up everyday grateful to longer create that suffering in myself. I live a peaceful simple life inside and outside because of my experiences with the medicine and the teaching of the Bwitit tradition. My most powerful experiences and teachings have been in the village with Moughenda. They have also been my most challenging. Without theses challenges faced, understood and integrated I would not be the person that I am today. My feet are on the ground and I am healthy, present and grateful to Iboga, Moughenda, the Bwiti, Creator.What I thought was impossible before the medicine in now real.

EXPERIENCE AT THE VILLAGE

I searched for years to find answers, to really find something that made sense, and to find a teacher that could offer the guidance I was seeking in this life. I didn’t know how to find those answers until I arrived in Gabon to Moughenda’s village. Meeting Moughenda and being so warmly welcomed into Bwiti tradition in the village is an experience that has forever changed me for the better. I am so grateful for the love and support shown to me in Moughenda’s village, both my Moughenda and his team. This Bwiti family has been the backbone of the most incredible growth and deep dive into truth, that so lovingly pushed me to break through my own nonsense and step fully into the best version of myself. It’s an honor and a blessing to be guided in this study of life by Moughenda, the medicine, and everyone supporting the amazing work happening in his village.

When I was in the village, it was nothing less than a life-changing experience for me.  Being able to get my healing, and learn so much about myself was everything that I needed.  Being in the village gave me my best opportunity of healing and to study Iboga.  Moughenda Is the best teacher/Shaman I could’ve asked for.  The attention and teachings that he provided for me and training was everything I needed to get to where I am today.  I came to the village holding onto a lot. PTSD, addiction, anger depression.  And now I’m free from all of it and able to provide for others that were once in my position

My experience with Moughenda has been absolutely amazing. Every time I’ve traveled to Africa I have felt completely safe and taken care of under Moughenda’s watch. His village is beautiful and the people working there are top notch. Learning about Bwiti from Moughenda and working with the Iboga medicine at source gave me all the tools I needed to completely change my life. I would highly recommended a trip out to Moughenda’s village to anyone who is ready to heal and move on with their life.

I have  originally encountered the quality of Moughenda's training at the Iboga Wellness Center in Costa Rica - as part of my initial healing. I was impressed by the quality of the work and went to Africa  for my initiation the next year. I was again impressed by directly watching Moughenda and Bwiti in action and decided to go for the provider's training in the first quarter of 2022. I gave it 110% and successfully graduated. I have also been completely healed and have been enjoying my life to the fullest. I have interned in the Bwiti life center in Mexico and currently offer week-long retreats in Czech Republic in Europe . I continue my work with Moughenda under his mentorship and with his work. I also continue my studies every year. I have been blessed to have Moughenda as my spiritual father, teacher, healer and shaman. Thank you Moughenda
