MISSOKO BWITI specializes in healing and natural medicine, using the Iboga root and thousands of plants along with psycho-spiritual techniques. As the original form of Bwiti taught to the Babongo people over 10,000 years ago, Missoko Bwiti remains pure, protected from French colonial influence.

Unlike other branches, it preserves the original tradition, free from religious and external alterations. Training in Missoko Bwiti respects and supports both the plant and the people who have safeguarded it.

    “The Village Saved My Life:  I was impressed with the caring nature of each member of the village. Everybody I encountered was deeply knowledgeable, kind, thorough and committed to helping people heal. I’ve never met a more devoted group of people like the Missoko Bwiti in Moughenda’s Village. Thank you Moughenda, Bossengue, Manimha, Lucien and all the beautiful people who supported me in my journey!

    Pamela M. Rosario Pérez

    Iboga Provider Training Graduate 2023
Harvard University Graduate

    "After leaving the military, I felt lost, depressed, and anxious, struggling with PTSD and a negative self-view. Despite trying various remedies, I found no peace or happiness. My search for healing ended in Gabon, where I found the missing piece. For those in similar situations or interested in plant medicine, Moughenda’s village is the place to go. Though traveling to Africa might seem daunting, it’s worth it. Moughenda and his team care for you from the moment you arrive in Libreville. They picked me up from the airport, took me to my hotel, and then to the village, where I felt at home. Working with Iboga at its source was incredibly powerful, and I am deeply grateful for the insights it provided."

    “In 2014, I discovered profound healing through the Bwiti tradition in Costa Rica, which led me to further training at Moughenda’s village in Gabon. This transformative journey culminated in 2020 with comprehensive training in Gabon, Africa, deepening my understanding and ability to share these healing practices with others. Embracing the teachings, I gained invaluable insights and personal growth.”
